Breaking Away

A vision is a clearly-articulated, results-oriented picture of a future you intend to create. It is a dream with direction. -Jesse Stoner Zemel

The above quote reminds me of the goals I planted for this year 2011. It really helps writing them down in a notebook or typing them in a Word document. I even take time to read them before I start to do some other tasks in the morning. I was somehow pleased to realize that I am seeing improvements in myself.

However, I still believe I have to bring more positivity in my life. Mind you I almost ruined this day because of my sudden burst of impatience. After reflecting for a few minutes, reality began to strike me like why am I reacting this way. Then I started thinking about the date today. It’s already 21st and Friday! I realize I must still end this weekday with a smile in my face. Glad I did! I have successfully changed my attitude towards the situation. I am happy to share this gratefulness as well as the song that came up to my mind. Enjoy reading and even singing the lyrics of the song called Smile:

Smile though your heart is aching
Smile even though it’s breaking.
When there are clouds in the sky
you’ll get by.

If you smile through your pain and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You’ll see the sun come shining through
For you.

Light up your face with gladness,
Hide every trace of sadness.
Although a tear may be ever so near
That’s the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what’s the use of crying.
You’ll find that life is still worthwhile-
If you just smile.
