I like recoginition. I don't see anything wrong with saying 'job well done' even if it is what they were supposed to be doing. It is kind of like that on SparkPeople, we are supposed to be eating right and exercising but we don't always do it and when someone notices and says good job it makes you work harder to do it again. Well it does for me anyway...

Very good quotes, and very timely for me. I made the choice of happiness for myself yesterday, decided to let things go that I cannot change. And I recognized that if I really want to become a better me I have to recognize when I am letting the outside events bother me to much.
You can only take one step at a time, it is best that the step is forward, not back. But even a backward step is exercise! LOL

Agree, and recognition is a nice thing, but we should be able to move forward and do what needs to be done WITHOUT any!
At my job they have a "recognition" program going now for some time. BUT it is ridiculous some of the recognitions you see there. I mean, THANKING people for doing what they are supposed to do...I think , thanking them for going above and BEYOND is far more appropriate. Oh well you can see the TREE and blossom idea at my blog.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public _journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2232561 Maybe tonight I will take my camera and take a picture of what it looks like COVERED with "blossoms". Looks neat...but as I say, alot of the postings here are just silly and not really what I would like to see myself...but that is me....

MY NEW saying: (borrowed from Delila)
"If you want to do something, you'll find a way, if you don't, you'll find an excuse."
I agree that happiness is a choice. We can be happy no matter what our circumstances. It is a matter of seeing the best in things. Just like we make choices in eating and exercise, we make choices in how we view life.
Recognition is another thing. I recognize my own accomplishments. Usually I don't need someone else to do it also. But rewarding my behavior is important to success.
