"Julie Andrews sang it, we hummed it for weeks afterward, now, to do it again like Julie, HMMMMM, “These are a few of my favorite things.” When was the last time we remembered them?" Jeff Johnson May 2008

Julie Andrews sang the lyrics, “When the dog bites, when the bee stings,” etc. She had a remedy to think or do some of her favorite things to overcome the stress. This was her ‘go to’ plan to bring her back to—well what Julie did best—sing.

When we have problems, stressors, and just an irritation, what is our ‘go to’ plan? Many times the reaction without a plan leads to more problems. Making a list of things that have worked for us in the past can help bring us out of that ‘slump.’ Thinking of those things that make us happy can also influence our mood in a positive manner.

Today, I think of sunshine on my day off, Vanilla Ice Milk with fresh strawberries on top, peanuts at the Ball Park, and time in the water. These are a few of my favorite things—see—I am smiling already. YOU ARE A FORWARD STEPPER smiling with me.

Make your list today—think on it as much as possible. Enjoy!

I believe in you because, YOU ARE WORTH IT,

Thinking about YOU makes me smile already. Thinking about how good you are to me makes me smile even bigger!
