    Inspiring Word/Phrase/Story of the Day

    With so many people suffering one way or another from the recession, up and down, there has to be a way to try to rise above it somehow. Everyday on the News there is some tragic item or story, people's spirits are sinking or losing themselves in despair.

    Maybe it's just a little thing to do to even have moments of happiness, catching sight of a word, phrase, or story you've heard that you could share to brighten up someone's life and give rise to hope again.

    The words we use or think everyday have a profound effect on the way we feel. The more we let negative words/phrases/thoughts take over the heavier we feel. Try it and you'll see it's the truth. A for-instance: When you are in a negative conversation with a person, if it isn't changed dramatically, you walk away feeling sad, or slightly annoyed. When in a positive, laugh-filled conversation, you walk away with a smile and just feeling lighter, that everything isn't all bad.

    Give it a try.

    Today's word is enthusiasm.
    Synonyms 1. eagerness, warmth, fervor, zeal, ardor, passion, devotion.
    Antonyms 1. indifference.

    How do you feel when you read the synonyms and how do you feel when you read the antonym?

    I hope members use this thread daily to add to it or just feel better and leave a comment.
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.


    True love is wanting to give to another person without any thought about
    who’s getting the better of the deal.

    Love always creates, it never destroys. In this lie's man's only promise
