Today, give lots of extra hugs!
Not only does it feel wonderful for both parties, it is also a very heart healthy thing to do.
I hope you are taking care of yourselves, remember if you aren’t well not only can you not accomplish your own personal goals but you can’t be there for others when you’re needed.
Have a wonderful day and week ahead,
With much affection (and hugs)
Have you been flexing your imagination lately?
Your mind needs nutrition from many types of sources. One is experience, you know the “hands on” learning type of thing. Another is from performing daily responsibilities in life. And ideally your experience and responsibilities learn to coexist in a comfortable relationship as you become wiser through the doing.
Of course, as we know life isn’t quite that simplistic. We fall down and often no one is around to kiss our “boo-boo’s” to make us feel all better.
This is where imagination comes in, belonging right there in the mix of hopes, dreams and wishes. We need imagination as a form of mental nutrition/stimulation too. (Some of our past and present geniuses ‘genii’ have often referred to imagination as being exceedingly beneficial in their own works.)
Our imagination allows us to be free from within and often its liberating on the outside too.
So use your imagination, I recommend at least one teaspoon of “magic potion” (your imagination) a day for optimal health!
Have fun dreaming! In your imagination you rule!
In nature there are all kinds of days. Good ones and bad ones. Mother nature works that way. Yet almost every single one us enjoys watching nature in action when it comes to the care of the little ones. Cars will stop (I’ve seen this happen myself) to allow a duck and her ducklings safe passage across a busy street, also with deer and their youthful fawn!
It’s this immediate “feel good” feeling we get. I don’t know if it’s watching the continuation of life, or some more basic instinctive thing left over from when we were young ourselves.
But I do believe, on those days, when we see any young life renewed, it is a most superlative day (in my humble opinion) to witness the event!
Thank you for stopping by, I hope your week is going well, with a few superlative moments thrown in for good measure!
Okay, it’s always a good day to share a smile, not only to brighten another person’s outlook but to also feel better yourself – in the doing. So smile, and if you don’t feel like smiling right now … well then …
Have a great weekend, be good to yourself and those around you!
You do make a difference!
To my friends.
Never forget the word “stranger” is just another name for the those we’ve yet to meet.
Have a most excellent weekend, all my friends from around the world. Take care of you, and enjoy your family and friends in the process.
“Nothing better! The foundation of life that we grow upon. Sharing of ourselves with each other. Family is only as strong as it’s weakest link, be there for yours. The results will be astounding!”

It doesn’t need to be big
a little one will do,
Even one should have a dream
or maybe even two.
So dream a little dream right now
and nourish as you go
Keep it close and you will find
That’s all it needs to grow.

A most happy Thursday everyone,
Sometimes no words are really needed to explain a feeling of … well … perfect contentment!
Those times when it seems that all is well with the world! You’re in the perfect spot to be.
And in that moment you wouldn’t change a single thing!
Have an excellent Wednesday,
A follow up to my previous post! Enjoy this musical Youtube video from the movie Moulin Rouge!
Come on everyone! Love, Live, Love! And in that order, again and again and again, just fill yourself up … and those you love, with these feel good feelings! Make it a never ending supply!
p.s. – start with yourself!
“Smiles and Laughter are ‘feel good’ things!
They give you a psychological advantage
from negatives that can threaten to overtake you.” ~ Penny, 2013
Do something delightful that brings a smile to your face.
Do something that makes you laugh spontaneously!
Have a good laugh today!
Watch a funny movie! Share a joke with friends!
Read a humorous book!
If you have children nearby, play a fun game with them.
If you have a pet, play with them.
Think a funny thought!
Okay I admit it may be a bit of a reach –
drawing a happy face on a cotton swab.
Although I have to say that the other swabs look quite jealous,
or perhaps envious for his happy expression!
I hope I brought at least a smile to your face today,
hopefully a little laughter too!
Have a great Thursday everyone,
