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!”

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!” 

Zest for LOVE and Sharing

With Love

Allow yourself a little time to let Love come your way

Believe that life’s a miracle – you have your part to play

Celebrate each morning – give thanks for this new day

Do little things with BIG Love – this is the joyful way

Eat good food with gratefulness, for earth and rain and sun

Feed your friends with tenderness, encouragement and fun

Give up resentments, grudges, pain – let go of ALL that stuff

Heal your heart with happinessLove really is enough

Invite a friend to walk with you, to journey somewhere new

Just take each other by the hand – decide Love is for you


Kindness is the answer, the best path you can choose

Love with all your heart and soul, you’ve only fear to lose

Melt all hardness, soften edges, let yourself just be

Now, this very moment – Love can set you free

Open up the closed doors – let your judgments go

 Question your assumptions – then throw them all away

Peace of mind comes gently when Love is all you now

Realise the truth in this – Love IS the only way

Stop worrying – start living explore those unknown lands

Take time to laugh today – life’s gifts are in your hands

Understand the message – there is only Love and fear

View your life with kindness – let struggle disappear

Weave a little magicLove is the golden thread

eXeeding joy and happiness can be your daily bread

Yes, it is simple, choose Love and take a chance

Zest for LOVE and sharing will lead us in Life’s dance

Happy People

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:

DECIDE to be happy.

Embrace and cultivate the positive.

NOURISH our physical body.

Good food,sleep, exercise, fresh air, hydration are the keys.

NOURISH our .

Tap into your passion. Keep on keeping on. Love what you do.

Find “your” PEOPLE!

They’ll like you for you. Stay away from the negative.

Become GRATEFUL.

 Be thankful for big things and small. Keep a gratitude journal.

 Don’t COVET “STUFF.”

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. 

Throw away the trash

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.

RELAX…….be Happy!

Inspirational Ignition


 

Treasures In The Garden

 

Igniting the flame which has become extinguished 

by a sad happening for someone we know…….

  At times our own

 light can go out and be

rekindled from a spark 

lit by another person.

 Each one of us has cause 

to think with deep gratitude

 of someone who has lighted

 the dwindling flame within us.

 

……. can be a wonderful achievement by a caring person, and inspiration for those in need  of a helping hand.

 

My word for today is “IGNITING!”

Firing up the Passion


 

Treasures In The Garden

When the light goes out within us.…….

At times our own 

light goes out and is 

 rekindled by a spark from 

another person.

Each one of us has cause

 to think deep gratitude

of those who have ignited 

the flame within us once again.

 

…….we appreciate help from another to rekindle the spark, to once again fire up the passion.

Post New Year….

 A nice way to begin the New Year…….

 

“Carry out a random act of kindness,

without expectation of reward.

Be safe in the knowledge that someday

someone will return that kindness to you.”

…….is with gratitude and love in the heart.

My word for today is “Kindness!”
