On the 10th Day of Happiness – The Riches You Possess!

dreamstime_xs_30405665

*

Once upon a special time, there passed a great decree.
There would be ten days of love for thee and thou and me.
 
On the first day of happiness, warmth and love afar.
On the second day of happiness, joy and blessing reign
On the third day of happiness, sharing peace throughout the lands.
On the fourth day of happiness, the ‘starlight’ memories came.
On the fifth day of happiness, success for all this year.
On the sixth day of happiness, discovering You are dear.
On the seventh day of happiness, cherishing each and every thing.
On the eighth day of happiness, seeing what friendship brings.
On the ninth day of happiness, discovering it in your heart.
 On the tenth day of happiness, realizing this is just a start.
 
Ten days to get things going, to be happy deep inside,
let go your fears and open up – your heart both far and wide.
 
While gold may bring you some things, the richest thing you’ll own
Is your state of happiness and loving seeds you’ve sown.

*

 
May each day begin and end with a happy thought. It is after all your choice to make it so!
 
~ All my love,
Penny
 
 
 
 

On the 8th Day of Happiness – A Thousand Words for Stranger!

“There are many words for stranger on this, our planet Earth.
Many different names to call those we have not as yet met.
Let one of those words be … FRIEND!” ~ Penny L Howe

*

On this eighth day of happiness let us fully embrace and recall the equal quality of life that all humans, everywhere, have the God given right to expect.

We assist ourselves and others by remembering each of us are strangers at one time or another – the only change that need occur in those times is reaching out with a strong and loving hand of friendship.

*

I hope everyone has been having a wonderful weekend in our bright and shiny New Year of hidden potentials and opportunities! Let’s make them happen, for ourselves and each other!

Leave No Doubt – Women and Men are more alike than you think!

In my last post, clearly it was one that women relate to quicker than men. Not because of the “girly” heart shaped illustration (although that’s a part of it) but because the message was written gently about the importance of unconditional love. For most women it’s how we view things.

Men love and bond just as deeply and passionately as women but their perspective on how they view a thing (as with women) has much to do with their own natures (let’s be honest here, a lot of it is physical), the environment they grow up in and of course their subsequent experiences.

But underneath all of these obvious differences there is a “sameness“! One that gets overlooked – a lot! I mention in yesterday’s blog post that with unconditional love you should “Leave No Doubt”. Too many women can forget they have the same capability as men with their own “strength (of character)” within their hearts . A strong ability to make their point and leave no doubt.

I am showing the  following video clip from a movie to remind EVERY SINGLE WOMAN ON THE PLANET that we are as strong and capable (equal to) as any human when we set out to accomplish something, be it loving and nurturing, pursuing our own goals or freedoms, we DO have the strength (of character) – built right inside of us, just waiting for us to call on it.

No, not the physical strength (presented here in the video) but the other strength that is also shown here. The one of character and will perseverance and determination! We all (humans) have that in abundance (just waiting to be tapped into). For women, it is past due time for us to cash in on this!

While the video is aimed at and about a male sport – the lesson to learn here is for both men and women – in life’s pursuit, and don’t forget it!

Leave No Doubt!

A World of Friends

Though we’re not acquainted, at least not as yet,
you’re still my friend – “we just haven’t met.”
I value your friendship and reach out my hand,
we all of us strangers – in a strange land!
*
Each day an adventure as life’s journey we take.
if we travel together such friends we will make.
we’re a company of strangers, but not for long,
Let’s build more relations – making us strong.
*
We all need each other to help us survive
we’ll weather the storms and stay alive.
We’ll conquer our fears, our worries, concerns,
depend on each other – that’s how we learn.
*
By needing each other … the seeds we will sow,
by sharing and giving – that’s how we grow.
I reach out my hand to you on this day –
“Hello my friend, are you going my way?”

A pathway of friends

pathway

pathway (the meaning):  A track or passage way for walking made clearer and stronger by continual treading. Such a way or track is often designed for a particular purpose: “a nature path”.

In my world view (of life, love and good things)  a group of friends (online and off) would be called “a pathway of friends”.   to be seen as ever expanding and growing – the tread of meeting continuous new friends never ends, creating more and often used pathways and so on.

My pathway of friends

I have found them everywhere among my travels through life. I have found them near at hand when I but hlooked up and saw them standing there.

My pathway of friends is a precious gift I cherish with all my heart and as paths go it seems to me that this pathway will become a road of much use.

The road will become so mighty that there will be bridges made so the pathway of friends can cross over any troubled waters with no difficulty.

And these mightiest of roads will indeed turn into freeways and expressways of friends, so many that the pathways encompass the planet leaving no friend behind, no friend not heard from, no friend forgotten, no friend alone.

My pathway of friends is an amazing path because it grows and expands at will. There is no deterrent that stops it, for it grows from love and it grows from hope and it grows from faith and I believe we all have those in abundance.

Yes it is all that I can wish and believe it will be

and I am pleased with the ever growing and expanding pathway of friends.

Thank you,

Penny
