Love this Russ..
Thank you for saying so, Mimi. I love it too.
Haha! It’s all about perspective. Awesome post Russ!
Thank you, Shian. It’s always good to hear from you!
Love this… seeing life from a different perspective…
What would a day for me be without a kind comment from bulldog? You are like the sun, my friend. Thank you.

Great post: perspective and attitude.
How kind of you. Thank you!
For me this is the most important thing. Reminds me of a book I read by Viktor Frankl, Man’s Search for Meaning, about his being in a concentration camp and losing his entire family. He watched people there, singing, laughing, dancing, making love, and came away with the attitude that you can have everything taken away from you but what you make your attitude. I’ve never forgotten that, not even when strapped with Lyme disease meningitis and a whole array of other bodily afflictions. That, along with my dog, probably saved my life.
From what I have read about Victor Frankel, I respect and admire him, and his powerful messages. Thank you for sharing more about him. May you too, continue to remind people in powerful ways regarding important aspects of life and living.

Some days we feel like we are upside down and things are not going well. Being optimistic is a way of getting through that moment. We have our light to shine.
Thank you for being a beacon of light, Ivon.
Thank you for the kind words Russ.
It is easy to say kind things about good people, my friend.
The less complicated our lives, the better. Love the optimistic turtle.
That has certainly proven true for me. And the less cluttered the better too. Thank you for your comment, and welcome!
Oh, I love this quote and the image. Thank you, Russ. xox
Thank you for taking the time to let me know how much the quote and image resonated with you. May the astonishing light of your own being brighten your days and warm your nights.
