STOP AND THINK – Believe that life is worth living, and your belief will help create the fact. (William James, 19th-20th century American philosopher)

Some people seem to go around with a sad expression and disposition, thinking that there is nothing good to find in life. How sad! Life does have its difficulties, but always thinking the worst almost guarantees dissatisfaction. Better to create a more positive attitude that will enable you to see the brighter side. Life will become much more pleasant.

You were taught . . . to put off your old self . . . [and] to be made new in the attitude of your minds. (Ephesians 4:22-23)
