Think Happy

I think I lean towards more of a pessimist but I say all the time, "I'm not a pessimist I'm just a realist!"  Either way getting an extra dose of positive thoughts is totally necessary for me.  I found a fun and happy book called Think Happy by Karen Salmonsohn which is just the perfect remedy for the everyday pessimist.  It's a very easy and lighthearted read that could be tackled in one short sitting but I'm enjoying reading it each morning.  The book is divided by topics and has 5 solutions for each problem.  Problems like failure, feeling grumpy, or needing to forgive.
The collection includes 50 of these "pep talks" which can boost your mood and/or confidence and help you tackle the day.  The entire book is bright and filled with fun and whimsical illustrations.
I had a ton of take-aways from the book and these are some of my favorite quotes or "pep talks," 
" It's easier to be a saint for fifteen minutes than an hour,"  
"Thoughts are like a steering wheel," 
"It is what it is- but you have the power to turn it into an isn't-so-bad," 
"Perfectionism is a form of self-abuse," 
"No matter how awesome you are, you won't be everyone's cup of tea- but no worries.  You'll be many people's double espresso," 
"If someone is trying to pull you down, it just means they are beneath you," 
"You are a fine piece of china.  Don't let anyone treat you like a paper plate," 
"Realize how much you're worth, and don't give people discounts," 
"Hating someone makes them important.  Forgiving them makes them obsolete."
