The Best Gifts to Give


Treasures In The Garden

Life has many treasures but a gift of ourselves is the best treasure of all.

Very often we will find that

 

the gifts which are the

most appreciated, and mean

 

the most are gifts of our time

 

and our love.

I will spend each day with a a heart full of joy and love.

My word for today is “GIFTS!”

Time and love are our life and cannot be bought- the most precious gifts to receive.

Living our Life in Peace

You only live once ?

NOT True…….

We live every single day.

We only DIE once!

Why do we only “Rest in peace?”

Why don’t we” Live in peace” as well?”

My word for today is” LIVE!”

  

I plan to live each day with a heart filled with joy and peace.

An Optimistic View


Treasures In The Garden


Let there be peace on earth…

and let it begin with me.

How different life would be

if we stopped making negative

judgmental  assumptions about

people that we meet on life’s pathway.

Let us begin today looking 

for the good in everyone 

who touches our life,

and respect the journey

that they too are making upon this earth.

                                               Steve Maraboli (American Inspirational Author)

My word for today is “RESPECT!

I choose to live my life with my heart filled with joy.

Holy Cow !


Treasures In The Garden

Living the best life possible…….

Life’s journey is not about

arriving at our grave

in a body that is well preserved….

But rather it is to skid in

sideways, totally worn out

shouting: ” Holy Cow….

what a journey that was!”

I have lived a total and full life.

Thank you, God!

…. I hope I have done what you asked.

I will live my life with a heart filled with joy and gratitude!

My word for today is “JOURNEY!”

A New Year Resolution


Treasures In The Garden

Here we are in the brand new year of 2017. 

Most of us will be thinking of New Year resolutions. Then, by the end of January we will have broken them and tried again a couple more times. It’s so frustrating because our good intentions have gotten lost in the craziness of just living our normal day.

So I thought that maybe as we are experiencing our normal day we could count the physical luxuries we take for granted, that other people would love to experience, but do not have these luxuries on hand.

Think about how many small luxuries we may have experienced today……. Count them up!

Did you wake this morning in a comfortable bed?

Did you have clean water to drink?

Was there hot water to shower in?

Did your bus or train run on time?

Did your car start? Did it run well?

  Did you eat a nourishinghealthy lunch?

Was there a  hot drink to have when you arrived home?

 Was there someone or a pet to welcome you home?

These are all things we so often take for granted.

Take a moment to appreciate each one of these things to the fullest.

Think about how fortunate we are in so many different ways. Let these little luxuries create a sense of  richness and wellbeing in your life.

And feel glad and grateful and fantastic.

Take notice and have gratitude for the smallest pleasures to make a huge contribution to our everyday happiness.

So many people don’t have these fortunate that most of us view as mundane things that are part of daily living. 

And we can have this wonderful happiness everyday.

My word for today is “APPRECIATE!”

I choose to live everyday with my heart filled with joy.

The Power of Intent


Treasures In The Garden

 

 I believe in the power of intention

to change the landscape of society;

And it is my intention to live an authentic

 life of compassion,integrity and action

                                                                                        Zachary Quinto

At the end of the day…….

It takes a

 powerful intention,

a powerful choice,

to make our life 

go in a different direction to

What it is going now.

We need to believe 

that things WILL work

out. Not as we had 

planned, but how

things were meant to be.

Change the way we look at things and things we look at CHANGE.

Wayne Dyer

I choose to live my life with joy in my heart.

My word for today is “INTENTION!”

In The Pursuit of Happiness


Treasures In The Garden

 There is enough happiness for everyone…….

Happiness is an inside job…..

Happiness can’t

be travelled to

owned, accrued,worn,or

consumed. Happiness is

the spiritual experience of

living every minute with

love, grace and gratitude.

When life throws us

hundreds of reasons to break 

down and cry, show life that 

we have a thousand reasons

to smile, laugh and be happy.

Lots of reasons to be STRONG!

Remember the time to be happy is NOW!

TIME waits for no one.

I choose to live with joy and happiness in my heart.

My word for today is “NOW!”
