Treasures In The Garden
Some people are lucky enough to be full of the joys of life. And it’s not always the people who are famous, money rich,attractive, slim,who are the happy ones. Real happiness is something which is deep in our soul, it’s attitude, it’s a choice we make. Not every day is a diamond but how we help ourselves to get through our dilemmas, and our gratitude for what we have is what gets us in a better place.
Here are some habits that can be made part of our everyday life:
NOURISH our physical body.
Good food,sleep, exercise, fresh air, hydration are the keys.
Tap into your passion. Keep on keeping on. Love what you do.
They’ll like you for you. Stay away from the negative.
Be thankful for big things and small. Keep a gratitude journal.
STUFF will not make us happy. It may only bring us debt.
FOCUS energy on what matters most.
Forget the past. Don’t fret for the future.
Don’t compare ourselves to others. We are our own unique selves.
Every day is worth celebrating.
Bring out the “good” tableware, wear the nicest dress/shirt.
Donate our unique talents.
Volunteers report great happiness, better health,
connectedness to community and the wider world.
“Fall seven times, get up eight”- Japanese proverb.
Problems are only temporary setbacks, learning curves, NEVER defeat.
Let HURTS go! They only hinder happiness.
Give up chronic stress. BREATHE EASY!
Look for GOOD in all people.
Be generous with our compliments. Be kind to all whom we meet.
Lift others up…. lift up ourselves.
