Positive Expressions

There are a lot of people in this world who have done so many positive things and have affected my life in many wonderful ways. I am very grateful to have them in my circle of friends. They have encouraged me to grow, to not be afraid, supported me in important decisions and have always believed in me.

People like this in my life have made me very rich for there is nothing like true friends that are always a part of you no matter what. I am a very lucky person, and a few of them I have actually met through Bike Forums.

I am very very grateful to have these people in my life. The best gift ever is the gift of themselves. I am very very thankful.

I'm glad for you sbw, surround yourself with great people, and everything else will fall into place

personal props-

my best friend scotty for always trying to get me to do the right thing. Always trying to get me to read the book of mormon. Always being an example. See you thanksgiving brother!!

My bishop- This guy is totally awesome, thanks for trying to get me too run with you!

The most attractive quality in a human being is selflessness.

In terms of bike forums. I keep coming back because I know sbw, bdg, and konarider post here Without them, I wouldn't even post here.

Maybe it's a guy thing? I have maybe 2 more people other than the 2 listed. I've known the two people I listed for over 5 years, scotty I've known since childhood.

Oh, I have been influenced by many over the years...I doubt that they changed my life. I am the one who leads that horse.

I agree with that. And I'm glad I've found BF, and Foo in particular. There is such a positive feel to this place that it can't help but rub off into "real" life. Thank you

actually, i will say, that there is only one person that has changed my life in a wonderful way, that i only realized 10 years after that action.

other than that, we'll have to wait and see.

Very nice, never met such a grateful person.

If I had read the original post without knowing who had written it, Siu Blue Wind would have been at the top of my list of "suspects". Thanks for being such a positive person who appreciates everyone (and everything) that is right in life, rather than just taking them for granted!

I suspect that there are many people who are very grateful to have YOU in their lives as well - probably many more people than you realize! You and I have never met but your posts and PM's remind me of one of the first truly nice people I ever knew. It has been over 25 years and I doubt she would even remember me, but I will never forget her and the positive influence she had on my life. Whenever I think of her I wonder how she is today and send out a silent wish for her health, wealth, and happiness. I'll bet you have more than a few well-wishes and/or prayers coming from out there somewhere too, SBW!

I think I have about 3 real friends that I can count on. One is my girlfriend who I live with and love to death and the other two are friends I've had since highschool and are the only two that I still "hang" with. My bud's. But I must say that the advice, laugh's and support that I get here I cherish and I only hope to be able to give some back as I go.

If A >> (B+C) then it won't be a positive expression, though.

That's why I used ABS and ^2 to ensure numbers were positive.
