positive thinking

I am a firm believer in the power of positive thinking - we are all in control of our own destiny and must not wait for anyone else to give us what we want. one of my favourite websites is, (see link at left of page)
susan is a writer, I have taken great inspiration from those several of her books that I have read. I also visit her website every morning as she posts a daily affirmation, todays (monday 25th jan) is "I trust that my inner wisdom will lead me to wherever I need to go", and a daily quotation, visit the website to see for yourself.
another website I like is (see link at left) where you can sign up to get a daily email message from "the universe", whose catchphrase is "thoughts become things, choose the good ones"
I know this works, because 5 years ago on a whim I decided I wanted to live in devizes, for no other reason than that I liked the look of where it was on the map and I liked the sound of the name. rog and I had talked about the possibility of relocating away from busy outer london at some time in the future. I fell in love with the town the first time I saw it in september 06, and in november 2008 we moved to devizes.
