Power of Happiness!

I saw this on Sarah's Yes and Yes blog this morning and I want to scream it from the rooftops!!  It's not only true, it's a very amazing quote that really captures what I want this blog to blossom into.  *love*

As a side note, Mr. Henry Ward Beecher is a pretty amazing man.  He is the brother of  Harriet Beecher Stowe who wrote Uncle Tom's Cabin and lived during the time of Abraham Lincoln and Mark Twain as a thinker, minister, author, and wasn't afraid to speak up for what he so strongly stood for.  So many interesting things about his life here.  And another fantastic quote from him:
"Hold yourself responsible for a higher standard than anybody else expects of you. Never excuse yourself. Never pity yourself. Be a hard master to yourself-and be lenient to everybody else."
*deep breath in, slowly letting it out* now I am ready to start my day!  Inspired.  Ready to be amazing!

Much love for Japan
