    The Power Of Attitude

    "Our lives are not determined by what happens to us, but how we react to what happens; not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life. A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events, and outcomes. It is a catalyst...a spark that creates extraordinary results."

    It's for the midnight walks taken on the beach.
    For the sight of a simple sunset, beauty out of reach.
    For the time spent laying out under the stars.
    For the love used trying to keep friends out of bars.
    For the gentle rain, heard when drifting to sleep.
    For the memories of kisses, my lips will always keep.
    For the feeling I get when I have finally reached my goal.
    For the love inside me that makes my heart whole.
    For all the time spent weeping over the lost.
    For the love we put into things no matter the cost.
