Overwhelming Life and A Temporary Cure

Sometimes life does seem overwhelming, doesn’t it? Thank goodness for family and friends both near and far and a special thank goodness for love …. and hugs, lots and lots of hugs.

Hugs are known to be an excellent therapeutic medicine for the temporary relief of life’s difficult trials (with no negative side effects – although has been shown to be addictive). ♡

Have a positive and relaxing weekend. One filled with love and hugs.

With sincere affection,

The Nature of Your Nature – An Ascendance of Self

yournature

 Heart and Mind

You have emotions and “feel” certain things every day of your life. Depending on the experiences of that day, your feelings are happy or sad, angry or hurt, excited or bored, painful or ecstatic; but you always feel something.

In addition to everyday feelings we have our heartfelt feelings. You know the ones. They turn your life upside down and change everything, either good (which is an excellent feeling) or bad (definitely not so good)!

This then, is your life and each day you’ll be the one who either allows feelings to control actions or you learn to take a deep breath and then act in a reasonable way, wisely determining when to give your feelings “free rein” and when to hold on tightly to them until that surge of emotional upheaval passes.

Which will be in ascendance for you, your mind or your emotions?

“Wisdom ~ definitely the acquired elixir of life’s learned experiences from which one intuitively knows when to imbibe and when to refrain.” ~ Plh

Be safe and have a positive week.

Echoes of Heartsong

“The beat

The rhythm

It’s there

And I’m listening.

The sound piercing sweet

Surely the most beautiful thing to be heard.”

~ Plh, 2016

Did you know your heartsong sings for you … sings from you … but mostly … singing of you!

Of the “who” you are!

How glorious and magnificent you are!

Did you know that? Did you?

Your heart song echoes through your being

telling those who would listen

all that’s needed to know,

and even more!

The knowledge that your heartsong is bonded with and shared by many.

Each knowing the other and their own unique heartsong.

All beating to the universal rhythm of life.

So Create, life awaits your heartsong.

Be Passionate, that’s how life burns bright,

Be Strong, you are not alone,

Be Brave, carry on.

know and be assured.

Your heartsong and you

… GO ON!

Thanks for stopping by, hope your week is being good to you.

With much affection,

Within Whispers of Hope – Your Strength

heartofthings

“When my heart gets weary and I cannot seem to breath,

life whispers hope. ~  Plh, 2016

Deep within your heart is the determination and ability needed to carry on, in spite of fatigue, weariness and the feeling of being completely overwhelmed with life – your life, in particular.

Look inward. It’s there. Feel the rhythm and pulse of hope’s existence. Sometimes almost imperceptible. Sometimes so subtle, so slight but always there, a greater belief that things will be okay as it has been in the past and can be again.

Notice and accept the hope within you. It is succor, aiding in the taking care of oneself. Hope will strengthen your resolve and assist until once again you recognize those unspoken promises that accompany your life.

With affection,

The Most Dangerous Loaded Weapon … FEAR!

handgun-by-photojogtom

Fear dilutes common sense often including one’s own personal sense of responsibility … even as it strengthens the emotions of hate, cruelty, disdain and indifference … sadly at the expense/risk of yourself and others.

With so many  troubled souls, so much turmoil and terror currently in our world it seems to me that by encouraging love, understanding and forgiveness; by strengthening friendships and coming up with thoughtful measured solutions, we can confront mutual problems and situations and through unity bring about peaceful resolutions for a more prosperous world for all.

No, not easy by any means, but I truly believe most doable. I also believe in the loving human spirit existing within humanity as a whole, resting deep within the hearts of billions of every day people … just like you and I.

“Don’t allow the emotion of fear to become a weapon against yourself, your neighbors and your fellow humans. We are all in this together, truly!”~ Plh

Thank you kindly,

What Do I Do With this New Day?

image

Oh, what shall I do
with this glorious new day?
It’s mine for the living
despite come what may.

How can I share
these feelings so grand,
where new life’s unfolding
making its stand?

And where do I fit
in this scheme of all things?
Do I even belong
Or is life a dream?

Yet be it a dream
I shall not despair,
for happy I am
Whether here or there.

~Plh, 2016

 

May your week be going smoothly and your cares be far removed.

With much affection,

I Cannot Bring You Peace, But This I Can Do –

image

As one person to another I can share love and peaceful intent – pass along calm, caring words that can give rise to positive thoughts and actions for bringing us all just a little bit closer to each other.

This I can do with openhearted expression and understanding. One person, one day at a time.

THIS I CAN DO AND SO CAN YOU!

With sincere love and affection,
~ Penny
