Positive Thinking

Why I’m Writing This Post:

I’m writing this post because I came across this good blog post that spreads Positive badge-smThinking and I liked the idea so I’d thought I write this post.

Today we need all the positive thinking we can muster. But we shouldn’t just think about doing positive thinking but we should take every opportunity to show positive thinking and even create positive thinking where there isn’t any.


Creating positive thinking also helps with your attitude. If you don’t have a good attitude then you’re less likely to have a positive outlook but remember this it takes more wrinkles to create a frown then to create a smile. So smile because who wants all those wrinkles.

I wrote a post called WHAT MEETING MAYA ANGELOU DID FOR ME because Maya Angelou was a wonderful woman and very encouraging to. Below are some quotes of hers and another encouraging person who is P.K. Hallinan. The one quote is by an unknown source.

Make sure you have a smile on your face because people will wonder what you’re up to and your attitude will be a lot better.

Stay positive my friends.

I DID IT!!: 500+ LIKES – YEAH!!

Hello Everyone, I’m excited. Why? Because I finally hit 500 likes on CRYSTAL’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE . My actual on Likes is 502 Likes. I am so happy.

I know to some people 500 Likes is no big deal but to me it’s an achievement for me since I’m new at this blogging thing. Sure I have fun and I enjoy meeting people from different places.



WordPress is a good site to start your blog or blogs on. I’ve found that WordPress.com isn’t just any blogging site but is a site that has 4 types of blogging plans and you choose the one that fits you best, It has a Forum page, A Support page and a Contact page where Staff, Happiness Engineers and/or Members try their best to help you. I’ve used all 3 and sure was glad these were there.

Thank You everyone for helping me get to this achievement. I appreciate all of you.
