*Rule #4 of How to be a DAME*

Have a Great Time... No Matter What!!!!

Life's too short to become consumed by the negative...

Things may not always turn out the way you would like them to... but try not to focus on the things that didn't happen or what went wrong. Rather readjust your view to the endless possibilites of any situation! There's more than one way to skin a cat and when life gives you lemons, make lemonade! Ok... enough with the corny life sayings and analogies right! -Hahaha! But as corny as they are, the messages behind these awful phrases still reign true and when applied are powerful!

It's never too late to make the best of any situation, small or big. Whenever I am starting to have a bad day (or night) and negative thoughts are start to cloud my judgement and change my attitude, I try to:
First - recognize the problem "Ok, this day/night is not going well because... (could be anything or nothing but acknowledgement is the first step)"
Second - decide how I want my day to turn out... "I'm gonna enjoy the rest of my day regardless of how it's started out" (Yes! You can decide from this point going forward how you want the rest of the day to go! It's that simple)
Third - put it to action! Tell a joke. Say a silent prayer. Call a friend. Do something to make yourself SMILE! You'd be suprised how something so small... but at exactly the right time can completely alter your outlook and change your emotions from stressed or upset to happy and excited for the rest of the day.

Dont let life's small mishaps cause you to forget the bigger picture... ENJOY LIFE because you only have one ;)
