Quote of the Week:

                        "We act as though comfort
                                  and luxury
                               were the chief 
                          requirements of life,

                      when all we need to make
                  us really happy is something to
                          be enthusiastic about."  
                                                                       - Charles Kingsley
             I feel, think & act enthusiastic today!

                  Enthusiasm! Yes!! Doesn't it feel good when
                  you're feeling enthusiastic about something?
                         It is nice to know that enthusiasm is a 
                   wonderful and natural part of us.  Notice how 
                   children sparkle with excitement - playing, 
                   shouting, bouncing, giggling, laughing, living
                   with joy & aliveness!

                         As adults we often subdue the enthusiasm
ourselves unnecessarily. But it is always
                   within us and can be uncovered.

                         When we allow enthusiasm to live within
                   us, we become alive with joy.  We are more
                   creative, fun to be with and more productive.

                         Think of a time when you were really, really
                  enthusiastic about something.  

                          Replay this in your mind often and picture 
                  yourself enthusiastically throughout your day 
                  greeting others enthusiastically with a smile, 
                  wholeheartedly tackling your projects - really 
the joy of life coursing through you.

                                Enthusiasm equals happiness!     

                         I let the magic of enthusiasm transform
                               my life into joy and happiness!

                  Have a Beautiful Week!
                 Barbara Jean
