    I know we all get stuck in a rut and sometimes feel a little down at times.o_O Perhaps some positive mojo like a quote or thought can put a smile on your face or brightened your day!!:rolleyes: A fellow pirate friend suggested that I start a blog or thread of positivity, so I thought I would give it a try!:) I want to give a bigs thanks to @Sea Patriot for the suggestion!:)

    There is a second grade class going over their weekly vocabulary words. The teacher, lets call her Miss Taco, asks the class if anyone can use the word positive in a sentence. Little Bobby raises his hand and asks the teacher, "do farts have lumps?" The teacher, very confused asks Bobby to repeat himself, so he asks again in a bit louder voice, "Miss Taco, do farts have lumps?" The teacher responds "no", Bobby then stands up and declares "well, then I am positive that I pooped my pants"

    The end.

    I dunno about anyone else, but when I'm feeling down I just marvel at the beauty of the world around me. Regardless of believe, however the world was made, it truly is a spectacle

    I think the Python's said it best...

    Cheer up, Brian. You know what they say.
    Some things in life are bad,
    They can really make you mad.
    Other things just make you swear and curse.
    When you're chewing on life's gristle,
    Don't grumble, give a whistle!
    And this'll help things turn out for the best
    And
    Always look on the bright side of life!
    Always look on the bright side of life
    If life seems jolly rotten,
    There's something you've forgotten!
    And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing,
    When you're feeling in the dumps,
    Don't be silly chumps,
    Just purse your lips and whistle -- that's the thing!
    And always look on the bright side of life
    Come on!
    Always look on the bright side of life
    For life is quite absurd,
    And death's the final word.
    You must always face the curtain with a bow!
    Forget about your sin -- give the audience a grin,
    Enjoy it, it's the last chance anyhow!
    So always look on the bright side of death!
    Just before you draw your terminal breath.
    Life's a piece of sh**,
    When you look at it.
    Life's a laugh and death's a joke, it's true,
    You'll see it's all a show,
    Keep 'em laughing as you go.
    Just remember that the last laugh is on you!
    And always look on the bright side of life

    Always look on the bright side of life

    Come on guys, cheer up

    Always look on the bright side of life

    Always look on the bright side of life

    Worse things happen at sea you know

    Always look on the bright side of life

    I mean, what have you got to lose?
    you know, you come from nothing
    you're going back to nothing
    what have you lost? Nothing!

    Always look on the bright side of life

    For all my pirate friends:

    The Power of One
    One song can spark a moment,
    One flower can wake the dream.
    One tree can start a forest,
    One bird can herald spring.
    One smile begins a friendship,
    One handclasp lifts the soul.
    One star can guide a ship at sea,
    One word can frame the goal.
    One vote can change a nation,
    One sunbeam lights the room.
    One candle wipes out darkness,
    One laugh will conquer gloom.
    One step must start each journey,
    One word must start each prayer.
    One hope will raise our spirits,
    One touch can show you care.
    One voice can speak with wisdom,
    One heart can know what's true.
    One life can make the difference,
    You see, it's up to YOU!

    Sometimes my kids help with this.


    (Talking about a toy)
    Me: "OK, it's time for Santa to go home now."
    Abby: "Does he live in the mall?"


    Abby: "Mommy, are pickles people?"


    Abby: (after coloring farm pictures at Barnes & Noble)
    "I drew a barn, but I didn't draw a noble."


    Abby: "Nora, don't scare me like that, because I'm allergic
    to bad guys and I might be sick at you."


    Abby (talking about a cartoon character running so fast that his legs were blurred)
    "Look Daddy, his legs are friggin!"


    Abby: "I broke my brain!"
    Amy: "Aww, did you get hurt?"
    Abby: "Yeah, I ripped it!"


    Me: "Don't touch that, there's schmutz all over it."
    Abby, later, pointing to a speck on the floor: "Look, a schmut!"


    Abby (unintentionally embarrassing us when telling her doctor about rushing around to get ready for school) "...and one time, when we got there, it wasn't even started yet!"

    "A man found a long stretch of beach upon which hundreds of starfish had been stranded by a great storm. He observed a boy cupping the starfish in his hands one by one and gently placing them back into the sea. The man asked the boy: "What does it matter? You'll never save them all." The boy smiled. "It matters to the ones I save." -Taro Gold

    "Your story isn't calm. The road has been chaotic at times, filled with detours and rain and loss so sudden, and so soon. Sometimes the bliss was so elevated your heart could hardly hold it. Sometimes it was maddening to have, and then lose. You learn soon enough that it hardly ever goes has planned--gentle, easy, and smooth. But that my friend, is what makes you fascinating. You have something to tell. Something you walked through. Something wild. Something courageous. Something true. You're made of stories within stories within even more stories. Those quiet depths of you." - Victoria Erickson
