Kelly's passion is to inspire others with her affirmations and allow them to journal their thoughts. amazon   KellyAuthor Kelly Clanton I am from Midwest City, Oklahoma which is the heart of a large Military Base and a town committed to Friday night football. After graduating I married, raised a family and working in the family business several years juggling many responsibilities.

In a world with so much negativity, my passion is to inspire positive thoughts one thought at a time and my hope is that I can inspire you! This has been an incredible journey and one I’m not finished writing.
Praise for the book: We all must have something to look forward to on a daily basis or we remain complacent and never move forward in life. This book is an easy way to have a positive for each day. Highly recommend this book for both its content and its price point. No reason not to purchase and share to even nonreaders as this book is broken down by day. We can all read a sentence or two a day. NO excuses! "Strive for Progress, not Perfection" ~ David Sterk If you enjoy journaling, this is a great tool for positive living. If you have never journaled, this is a great way to start! This is not a novel and the reader is an active writer / participant. Kelly's affirmations are her own and are intended to be used as a guide for helping others develop their own daily affirmations. Truly enjoyable! Everyone needs this book. (Even us pessimistic people) Smile, smile, smile add to goodreads Excerpts: January 5 You don’t always need a plan. Sometimes you just need to breath, trust and see what happens. Remind yourself it’s ok to not be perfect. It’s not selfish to love yourself. Take care of you and make your happiness a priority. February 5 It doesn’t matter how rich, talented or cool you think you are. Your integrity and how you treat others says it all. You have to water flowers daily for them to last. March 10 In life, you have to do what makes you happy. Be with ones that make you smile. Laugh as much as you breathe. Love as long as you are living. Every day is a new beginning – look to what it can do. April 1 Sometimes our lives have to be shaken up a bit – moved around to put us where we need to be. Look ahead and always smile. You never know what a change it can make.
