{pour yourself a "Cup of Good Day Wednesday"}

start with a deep breath
take time to reflect
wear something that makes you happy
apply a smile
put your listening ears on
don't forget your appreciation & enthusiasm
throw your anger & guilt out the window
AND
repeat 10 times
"it's going to be a good day"
~
it's up to you to make it a good day
you can count your blessings
or you can count your
calamities
it's your choice
so go ahead
pour yourself
"a cup of good day"

O.K.- I am going to take a moment to be humbley proud of myself- I edited your "Friday Pretties" link on my blog so that it goes to your blog, not just that post. Doesn't sound like a big deal to all, but for me, Big Deal! :)

Oh my, I adore what you did to your stylish, sweet, simple teapot picture. Those cutest drops popping out of it.... sigh... your gorgeous corner in the world is one of the sweetest. Beautiful words.
The quote of Zig Ziglar {cute name} is great.
About pouring the tea, over my next cup of tea I'll pretend we drink it together and have a little chit chat, now wouldn't that be lovely! xx

Hi Koralee!
Your photography is just fabulous!
How do you get that black background?
I've had lots of good day cups lately... enjoying the sweetness of it all ~

I can't wait for school to be out... It's been difficult to concentrate... I have some catching up to do there and then on the 24th ~ I'll be free to relax thoroughly~~~
How about you, Koralee? Is your school open to the end of June?
Hope your skies open and the sun comes out for a while! take care dear ♥

Oh did I need to hear this! My students are going wild since Friday is the last day of school. They are not listening...gee, like all year they haven't been! And really, I need to lighten up. I will wear my pink ruffled skirt today, a pink beaded sparkling necklace and just revel in the love of the few students who enjoy school. Thank you Koralee for the fantastic photo and good word!!!!
