Happiness can come in a single moment.
And in a single moment it can go again. But a single moment does not create it.
Happiness is created through countless choices made and then made again throughout a lifetime.
You are its host as well as its guest.
You give it form, shape, individuality, texture, tone.
And what it allows you to give can change your world. Happiness can be stillness.
But it isn’t still.
It wraps, enchants, heals, consoles, soothes, delights, calms, inspires and connects.
It is on your face and in your body. It is in your life and being.
STEPHANIE DOWRICK, Choosing Happiness
Every morning was a cheerful invitation to make my life of equal simplicity,
and I may say innocence, with nature Herself.
Henry David Thoreau
Its almost dawn…there is soft rain falling, its so gentle, lightly cleansing my world. I feel a sacred silence. The world is asleep around me…peace. The last little snail, trekking across the wall on its way back home. My herbs are fragrant, the air clean. I feel dreamy still, mellow, gentle, soft happiness enfolds me…its time for tea…and perhaps the perfect hour to share a few words with you.
IN ONE WORD: Precious
COLOUR OF THE DAY: Pale Green
HOW I FEEL:
‘The silence was enchanting.
Infinite space seemed to enter it,
and my spirit, alone with the stars,
seemed capable of any adventure.’
W. Somerset Maughan
I am quietly happy, I feel more rested and alive! My body settled and energised. After several challenging months, with health issues and strange symptoms to deal with, I am beginning to feel more in my body and whole again. Life has settled and resumed balance with an uplifting vibration…I feel revitalised!
PHYSICALLY: Harmonising, pacing myself. Sleep is deep, yet erratic…sleepy eyes, often scratchy and tired…hot and cold during the night.
“Find a point of stillness in the balance of all things
between the breathing out and breathing in.”
Many of us need to slow down our daily pace, taking time to stop and breathe consciously, to rebalance our thoughts and to allow more time for rest. Pray often, from the heart, live with faith in quiet surrender…Forgive, love, laugh and cherish each moment…We have a long road to walk…lets do it together, with a lightness and with love.
To live the life that was set for me to live.
To voice the things that only I can voice.
To bear the blossoms that are commanded of my heart.
This is what I want, and surely, this cannot be presumptuous.”
Rainer Maria Rilke
“The days come and go.
If we do not use the gifts they bring,
they say nothing and carry them silently away.
Life is a daring adventure, meant to be experienced with love.”
Make space for your ‘next’. Embrace all that is coming towards you and accept where life is taking you…I know and understand that many are unaware of the huge changes that are happening, on every level of our lives…Yes, there are those who may feel overwhelmed by life right now too…Offer kindness, understanding, patience and compassion, even when your own needs are not understood. Allow this to be so…
When you become comfortable with uncertainty,
infinite possibilities open up in your life.
AFFIRMATION: “ I love and approve of myself…”
