Moving Through Life in a Positive Way With Cookies and Milk”


“I have a friend who, no matter when you ask him what he is doing, will say:  “I’m generally moving through life in a positive way.”

To generally move through life in a positive way is to live in a state of grace, of love, expecting that life will bring you remarkable surprises, and knowing that your effect on life will as gracious as its effect on you.

To move through life in a generally positive way is not only an attitude or an expectation; it is a prayer of thanksgiving to the universe for the pleasure of being alive.”    (365 Days of Love, Daphne Rose Kingma, Conari Press)



“Think what a better world it would be if we all-the whole world-had cookies and milk about three o’clock every afternoon and then lay down with our blankies for a nap.  Or if all governments had as a basic policy to always put things back where they found them and to clean up their own mess.

And it is still true, no matter how old you are-when you go out into the world, it is best to hold hands and stick together.”   (Robert Fulghum, All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten)



“Trust the one who can see these 3 things in you:

  • Sorrow behind your smile,
  • Love behind your anger, &
  • Meaning behind your silence.”   (Kamari, aka Lyrikal)



“Don’t rely on someone else for your happiness and self-worth.  Only you can be responsible for that.  If you can’t love and respect yourself – no one else will be able to make that happen.  Accept who you are – completely; the good and the bad – and make changes as YOU see fit – not because you think someone else wants you to be different.”   (Stacey Charter)



“A best friend is someone who never disturbs your solitude but won’t let your loneliness have a moment alone.”  (Robert Brault)



“In the end, no thought is unthinkable, no problem unshrinkable, no two strangers unlinkable.”   (Robert Brault)
