This book is filled with my positive thoughts and inspiration. Just by reading these pages I hope you will start to appreciate the simple things in your own life a bit more than you did before. Just by selecting a random page it will help you feel inspired to make the most of your today. The words will also help you to adapt to situations better than you have ever done before. Live with more enjoyment, happiness and effectiveness and include this in whatever you’re doing. You can create more experiences for yourself that will bring you much more joy. Once you adopt living and seeing things in a positive and different way, you will emerge feeling better than you have ever felt before. A good way to begin is to give in. What I mean by giving in is try to let go of control, stress and worry. Start appreciating your own life more. Stop relying on others to carry you through life. Walk in a direction that will include new adventure. You will realise that by changing the way you think and feel you can achieve and experience many things. Emerge away from negative dark depths of thought and this will enable you to adapt to, cope with and accept change. Every day change and challenges in your life will continue to happen: the weather, your appearance, family and friends… the list continues; in fact it can become endless. Smile a bit more than you did the day before; it’s good to keep open this window of your personality. I have chosen to live my life in a positive way and every day I will continue to adapt to cope with changing times. I have been given the gift of life and I’m not prepared to waste it away on worry or negative thought. There is so much left for me to see and do within this endless world to be discovered. I will continue to keep swimming through the reeds.
There is so much love you can give. Let it come out. There is so much left for you to do. Appreciate today and with every moment try to include lots of good. Try to remain calm, confident and happy. Treasure your life and live it now. Continue swimming through the reeds.
Release yourself from your shell
A shell will always become heavy. It will prevent you from being your true self. Imagine a little chick emerging from its shell ready to embrace a new beginning. Are you feeling ready to embrace today with a new start – a new you? All you have to do is release yourself from your shell and you will have a complete breakthrough.
Climb the mountain with me
Breathe out the negative, replace with positive fresh beautiful air. You can climb all mountains regardless of the weather. Try not to put barriers in the way. Try not to listen to what other people think, you have to go with what feels right to you... Be true to yourself... If it feels right to you go for it...If I can do it you can too.
Start your day the chain reaction way
Turn the switch on to send a vibrational signal within to feel
Good + Happy = Positive
Turn the switch off to send a vibrational signal within to feel
Bad + Unhappy = Negative
Start your day the chain reaction way.
Connection to your reflection
Create your own destiny not an illusion of a destiny that could have been. Be the projection that you are meant to be. Not the reflection of what someone else wants you to be. Start your day the projection way. Connection to your true reflection will mirror a projection that will shine back only to you.

Enter a pathway filled with endless possibilities
Do you feel like you are living in a haze of hairspray? A hairspray haze can block and stop you from achieving your goals. Your vision can become out of focus and the haze can hold you back. Hair without hairspray will find its own style. Step out of the haze and bounce forward into a pathway filled with endless possibilities.

Are you a sponge or a flannel?
Sponges hold onto negative emotions and layers. They absorb negativity and they find it hard to relax. They may also feel stressed, angry, and anxious or depressed. Flannels live day to day; they make the best of a situation and can remain calm under pressure. They see the positive side of life and know how to relax the mind which helps them to live layer free. Over time the absorbent layers within a sponge can become heavy. Releasing the layers within the sponge will help you become a flannel. Make a start today try to relax the mind.
You have the ability to make a change. Smile and make it happen. Just one small smile can make a difference. It can cause a chain reaction that can travel right around the world. Everyone understands a smile. Smiling creates a beautiful warmth just like the sun. Today you have the ability to make a change. All you have to do is smile.
Is the weather your main focus of the day?
If you are feeling negative about the weather, is this really the only thing that is making you feel so unhappy, low or moody? Stop and Think! Taking it out on the weather won't solve your problems. You can’t make it stop; you have no control over nature. If your main focus is the weather maybe it’s time to face your fear and go out and get wet! If changes need to be made or the past is holding you back. A rainy day is a perfect day to wash it all away. The rain comes down to help you cleanse your mind, body and soul. You have no control over the weather but you can change the way you feel.
