“Because you are alive, everything is possible.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

It’s very easy to get caught in a negative mindstate and sometimes a little upward push can get us back on track. Sometimes we just wake up on the wrong side of the bed. Sometimes we’re just a little off

QMU is here to help you get back on.

Sometimes we’re on, in which case, let’s work together to be ON.

As Quick Me Ups grows, it has also developed another focus:
to help improve the lives of other people; to grow community; to make the world a better place.

Small compliments and favors can truly go a long ways.

Here a few example Quick Me Ups:
Be the Best YOU Today
Make a Major Change
Stay the Course

Quick Me Ups encouraging us to help a neighbor:
Small Favors are Big
Can You Help ONE?

And we sometimes even discuss POSITIVE news stories:
Good News Friday IV
Stories: Girl is reunited with her family, Woman wins prestigious mathematics award,  Elderly woman helps young girls in Africa, Man gifts a vehicle to local community member.

I’m happy you’re here; thanks for stopping by.
