Keep your Face to the Sun

"A happy woman is one who has no cares at all; a cheerful woman is one who has cares but doesn't let them get her down." ~Beverly Sills

I suspect we all have cares. Everyone has worries and issues that are very painful. But my goal is to not let mine get me down.

Helen Keller is someone I find amazing and her outlooks are almost consistently upbeat. "Keep your face to the sunshine and you will never see the shadow." ~Helen Keller

Good advice. And Happy Wednesday to you!

I love the definition of a cheerful woman. We can still find joy even in hard times can't we?:)

You are always upbeat and positive...are you sure you're not on anything...Just Kidding!

I was searching for photos of pink daisies and ran across your page. This quote was so encouraging. Just what I needed right now. The song "The One Who Loves You the Most" by Brett Dennen was playing in the background...it was one of those perfect moments created by God just for me! :) thanks so much for being part of it! God bless!
