 “Your attitude is like a box of crayons that color your world.  Constantly color your picture gray, and your picture will always be bleak.  Try adding some bright colors to the picture by including humor, and your picture begins to lighten up.  ALLEN KLEIN.





I have had a first hand education how the “color choices” we make can predict how our picture of life will look like.   For the past 4 months, my dear mommy has been either in the hospital or rehab center due to severe back pain.  I have spent a total of approximately 2 of those months away from home to be there for my mom.  Without going into detail, I have observed the power of perception…..not just in her thinking but mine and others.


 It is because of this experience, I want to write a series of blogs on the power of our thoughts.



 As Marcus Aurelius said: “Our life is what our thoughts make it.



I met people who have the most extraordinary attitude of optimism, even though they are facing a serious illness with pain, …and in contrast people who choose to look at everything from a negative point of view.  The differences are absolutely astounding.


This will be a learning experience in progress as I research how we think…

 So….thinking off the top of my head….I want to explore the following:


1.) the power of positivity

2.) how the way we think affects our brain function and attitude

3.) the effects of stress

4.) the benefits of laughter

5.) practical applications to improve the quality of our life


My question I leave with you, today, is….

                                “What color crayons are you using to paint your picture in this new year?” 


As Melodie Beattie states….. “The new year stands before us, like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written. We can help write that story by setting goals.


So …my goal is to begin blogging again.  Just want to wish everyone a HAPPY NEW YEAR.  Take care & God bless.  SDG
