Top Tips For a Happy Life #6

I will be honest with you guys-- this week, I just wanted to draw a rose bud, and so this week's Top Tip comes courtesy of a quick google for 'quotes about roses'. Is that so wrong? Also, I just mistyped Google as 'googe', can you imagine how different life would be if we said, "having a googe"? It's thrown me for a loop now.

Today's quote; "Some people grumble roses have thorns; I am grateful that thorns have roses" comes from Alphonse Kerr, an ingenious French writer/novelist/critic. Isn't it just a great glass-half-full way of looking at things? A perfect reminder that you can flip negativity on it's head-- aren't I glad this seven day week has only had one bad day, today? Aren't I glad that I am only getting this spot today rather than at my staff Christmas party? Aren't I lucky that I ran out of my favourite nail polish, meaning I can go shopping for another one guilt-free? Easy peasy, squeeze the lemon, take that thing back flip it and reverse it. I'm certainly going to give it a go today. Aren't I glad I couldn't think of a quote and in my search for one, found this gem? Perfecto. Serendipity at it's finest.

Until next time,
Steph
