Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life

Most of my family are huge Monty Python fans ... I on the other hand only enjoy bits and pieces ... but these few verses from the Life of Brian (he is not the messiah he is just a naughty boy) always bring a smile to my face. Remember - if you take yourself too seriously you might begin to loose the ability to laugh. Enjoy.

Always Look on the Bright Side of Life (from Monty Python)

words and music by Eric Idle

Some things in life are bad

They can really make you mad

Other things just make you swear and curse.

When you're chewing on life's gristle

Don't grumble, give a whistle

And this'll help things turn out for the best...

And...always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the light side of life...

If life seems jolly rotten

There's something you've forgotten

And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing.

When you're feeling in the dumps

Don't be silly chumps

Just purse your lips and whistle - that's the thing.

And...always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the light side of life...

If this doesn't make you smile, then I don't know what will - enjoy.

Living Life To The Fullest

Feel like you are not getting anywhere, stuck in a rut, think the grass is greener on the other side? We have all done it, I recently had a period of finding it very hard to see my glass as half full, some of the following inspirational quotes gave me cause to reassess - may they help you to by allowing you to put on some other glasses when viewing your world and life. If there are some inspiration quotes that you use in your life, I would love for you to share them here.

There are only two ways to live your life. One is though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle ... Albert Einstein.

A bird does not sing because it has an answer; it sings because it has a song ... Chinese proverb

Life is not the way it's supposed to be. It's the way it is. The way you deal with it is what makes the difference ... Virginia Satir

Being defeated is often a temporary condition. Giving up is what makes it permanent ... Marilyn vos Savant
