      I love your reply, Cathy. For some reason it led me to laughing out loud at myself as the thought came to me that since I know it is true and that there are so many wonderful benefits to staying positive in my thoughts, attititude, and actions, then why in the world don’t I stay positive ALL the time?!?!?

      It’s gotta be that slow-learner thing again! (Sigh…)

    But the question is: how do you get positive emotions to appear? I’ve heard about this new generation media player that produces positive emotions! It’s called emoplayer from http://www.emoplayer.com — I have tried it and works so far but it’s only by invite on Twitter.
