Your Lightness of Being!

“The level of lightness in which you carry life’s burdens
is in direct proportion to your level of happiness and contentment.” ~ P

So lighten up, already.

If there’s not a lightness to your step and laughter in your voice as you go through your daily activities. If there’s no time to feel a sense of wonder within yourself , life and others around you, then you’ve overburdened yourself. Let go of that which is really not important. And it’s for you to decide what that might be.

And  know this. It’s your life. You decide how you will carry the burdens for which you’ve made yourself responsible. But remember, if as a result you’re unhappy, the burdens will become intolerably heavy and eventually you will be unable to carry on. There is no happiness when one feels overwhelmed with life.

A balancing act, yes it is. But as in all things there is much joy when happiness is the fulcrum balancing responsibility and self fulfillment!

Be happy, be fulfilled, be contented. Know yourself and your capabilities. Even a strong person asks for help when needed. No need to carry the world on your shoulders. Leave that job to Atlas!

Once you’re okay then you can take care of others.

The Tears of our Life and the Strength of our Convictions!

“Humanity will owe its survival in the future – as in the past – to those with the strength of their convictions who carry on through the compassion of their tears …  despite the burden of their fears.”

Penny L Howe, 2014
