Hello to all of you wonderful citizens of ATS! Along this journey, there are times when we could use something positive, something good. A smile, a kind word from a stranger, something, anything. I've seen a lot of negativity on here lately and thought i would try to change it up a bit.

I would like this thread to be a place where we can all share something good with each other. A song that always seems to cheer you up when you are down, a funny meme, a great quote....I think you get the idea!! I'll start off by sharing some things that are my go to when I am in a bad mood.

This song by Jack, the music video is awesome too!



This quote helps me to better understand why people are the way they are, and to not be so judgemental.



This song speaks to me on a deep level. There is some christian undertones, but the message is wonderful. (Don't hate bro)



Sorry if this is a huge post, still figuring out how this forum thing works. Please add anything that cheers you up, you find funny, makes you smile....the key here is SOMETHING POSITIVE! Much love to all of you. I will leave you with this....

I don't know how to be positive. If it's anything like this thread says... I've been lost for ages.
However... since I don't get pissed.... ever.... I just go home when things are not to my taste.
Once I'm home I find this to make me feel better: A neighbor who lives directly beneath me and hates my stomping.

When feeling like I don't have much money, a mansion or a Ferrari...I remember how the smal things in ife really do bless us like the following quote:

"I once was sad because I had no shoes.
Until I met a man...that had no FEET".

I'm late to this party; just saw it.

I love what you are doing here and I decided that I would contribute...and then sat for 30 minutes trying to think of something funny to share or say...and I was hitting blanks. Then I remembered a true story, and sat for another 30 minutes, wondering if this would be the one post of mine that has been replaced by that blank, label stamp of disapproval on it.
But for you, OP, I'll risk it...

Years ago we bought an old house. It needed a new TV cable and so three young men came over to do the install. They were quite professional and respectful. There was a problem, though, of how to get the new line in. There was a big thick line coming from the public portion, and they had set up a new thick line inside of the house, from the sliding patio door to my desk.

The issue was how to connect the two lines, as the old line that was outside and then going through the wall, was quite old and thin looking. But after testing the line, they determined that this line would work out just fine.

They explained that the wires within the cables in the past had the same interior gauge, and it was just the outer housing that had changed over the years. As an old draftsman, I sort of got what he was saying, but my husband had not heard the explanation and so he could not understand how this skinny wire linking the two could possibly work. So, the young man in charge tried patiently to explain it to him, but my husband kept saying that the size was incorrect, pointing out the obvious difference in thickness between the two.

Finally, exasperated, I exclaimed, "It's not the rubber that counts! It's what's inside the rubber that counts!"

Everyone, myself included, froze on the spot. No one spoke and no one moved. After a very long pause, the young man in charge politely said, "Ma'am, I'm glad you said that and not me," to which we all burst out laughing.

I still laugh when I remember that moment.

I do many things for myself... some good and some not so good.
But... whenever I want to do what's right for myself... I just go to fb... post my comment... and then press like. It pisses off my wife...

Thanks Night Star! I have always loved that starfish story. Also, I love your signature! Sorry for being late, Mothers' Day business to attend to!! The quote about love reminds me of something I heard that goes something like "The earth laughs in flowers"

So true my mysterious friend. I've been on crutches for about six months and I tell myself things along those lines quite regularly. Who needs a ferrari anyway? I for one would just end up in a really expensive accident lol!

Hello Pinocchio! Being positive is entirely up to you my friend, I wish I could hand you a manual on how to do it. If you are able, I'd suggest spending time in nature! Sometimes I just have to clear my head and get away from all the hustle and bustle. Walking under the trees, sitting on boulders, watching wildlife.....something about the whole experience speaks to me. I would dare to say that your nose has grown this day! I believe you know how to be positive, maybe you just lost sight of what those things are to you specifically

Well Said Laddy...
Nature Is Indeed A Splendor. I Saw A Baby Squirrel Out On His Own. He Wanted To Jump From A Log To A Branch. He Didn't Make It! It Was So Sad... I Was Rooting For Him.

ClownFish whatsup buddy! Thanks for stopping by. HA super glad that you shared that, I have worked some jobs where I was in the position of the young men and have had to do extra hours of labor because the client could not or would not understand what I was trying to say. True stories always have an extra layer of funny to them, maybe I am able to better paint a picture in my head. I shall leave you with some LOLS

a reply to: Pinocchio

HAHAHA man that is super cute. I've gotten the chance to feed one wild squirrel before, at my grandparents cabin in colorado. Me and my buddy were outside eating some pistachios and this lil bugger just came right up and was chilling next to us on this boulder. Cracked a few for him, and held out my hand. He nibbled one in front of me, then shoved the rest in his mouth and bounced. Hopefully pistachios weren't harmful to the little guy....
