Not All of the Story


Treasures In The Garden

Don’t be fooled by that happy smile.

The smile on my face does not mean my life is perfect.

It means that I appreciate what I have been blessed with.


I choose to be happy.

We can appreciate life even if it’s 

not perfect.  Happiness is

not fulfillment of what

we wish for, but an

an appreciation of what we have.

Once we start appreciating our life,

that is when we realise

how much we truly have to be thankful for.

My word for today is “APPRECIATION!”

I choose to live each day with love and joy in my heart.

The Power of Positivity


 

Treasures In the Garden

Make the right choice…….

Happiness is a choice,

not a result.

Nothing will make us happy

until we choose to be happy.

No person will make us happy

unless we decide to BE happy.

Our happiness will not come to us.

It will only come from us.

Ralf Masterton

……. Make a choice today…….

I choose to live every day with joy in my heart.

My word for today is “CHOICE!”

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 the. fortune 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.

Living Life to the Fullest


Treasures In The Garden

Having no regrets……. I think of my grand children when I read this good advice, because these are the kind of things children do… with no inhibitions. being childlike is living with lightness in our heart. 

Eat that piece of chocolate cake

Walk in the rain

Splash in the puddles

Ride with the windows down

Dance. Sing. Talk to strangers

Smile at everyone

Hug someone

Go Barefoot

Take naps

Make LOTS OF LOVE

Try new things

Spend time with the kids

Laugh every chance you get

Help others.

 

LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST….

NO REGRETS!

LIFE IS WAY TOO SHORT!

I choose to live every day with JOY in my heart!

My word for today is “LIVE!”

Chasing Butterflies


Treasures In The Garden

Most of us spend time searching for happiness….

Happiness is like a butterfly:

the more we chase it,

the more it will chide us;

but if we turn our attention

to other things,it will

and sit softly 

on our shoulder.

Thoreau

…. there is enough happiness for all of us.

I choose to live with joy in my heart.

My word for today “CHASE!”

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!”
