In A World Gone Mightily Mad

Be gentle, be kind, be forgiving

in a world gone mightily mad.

Be loving, be grateful, be happy

Not angry, disillusioned or sad.

*

As you slowly replace the material

and seek to find goodness within

you will see you have reached the ethereal,

unconditional love then begins.

*

Have a wonderful remaining week of days. May your heart be filled with love and your life be filled with the riches of family and friends (those you know and those you’ve yet to meet!) Always remember to take care of you,

With great affection,

Beauty and Wisdom …

 

sunshine

… is there to be found in our every day lives.

There for us to view, if we take the time to see.

There for us to appreciate, if we remember to be grateful.

There for us to love, if we know and believe that we are in control of our thoughts, emotions and actions.

And remember too … truly, there is always time for love!

May your New Year be filled with blessings of every kind.

Thanks for stopping by,

With much affection,

Your Body Listens to You

Yes it does, and in this complicated, complex world we live in our body pays especially close attention to each word we speak and every thought we think!

vintage_boat_picture-t2

It hears you speak about what’s right and wrong, (add the word stress here). Your body hears every single word! It listens to your thoughts about how you’re feel about things, others, yourself, your emotions, yes it even hears you when your thinking about how your body itself feels – you know aches and pains, kind of things.

And then … your body decides how it’s going to cope with the day! A fact!

So help your body hear some good things. Let your body listen to the joy of balance and harmony created in your mind when you’re doing something you love. Gardening, Taking Photographs, Painting, Drawing, Running, Riding, Building, Reading, Playing, Singing, Loving.

Let your body hear you laugh – a lot. Let your body hear your thoughts when you do “stop to smell the roses”! Let your body hear some beautiful music you’re listening to and enjoying.

Let your body hear your thoughts of gratitude for what you do have that’s positive in your day.

Give your body a leg up … It’s listening to what you say and think (always) … say something that makes it feel better. Start today.

It does a body good, I promise!

Have a great day and a better tomorrow!

Love, Laughter, Strawberries and Hugs

image

… These are a few of my favorite things.

And you! Definitely you. And the aftermath of a rainshower when rainbows appear, birds sing and the fragrance of life bursts forth.

And giggles, I love little children giggling – so totally infectious. And puppies and kittens (goes without saying I guess). Flowers, I simple love flowers, all kinds and strawberries still on the vine, red, sweet and just waiting to be picked and popped into my waiting mouthwatering mouth.

And good news. Any good news, doesn’t matter what. And music where people spontaneously sing along, because we can’t help ourselves. How great is that?

There are just too many things to name when it comes to favorite things.

But then it seems to me even on the hardest of days remembering our favorite things that make us happy (and grateful) is an absolutely wonderful way to go on!

Take care of you.

Our Beating Heart

“I give humble thanks for this new day, my family, my friends (those I know and those I’ve yet to meet), all living things that (as with each passing day) enrichen; reminding me the true beauty/gift of life lies within our beating heart.” ♡ ~ Plh, 2016

Achieving a Winning Edge in a Cruel World.

image

“When your heart is open you can see love blooms everywhere – knowing the vibration of love is nature’s true essence for life and renewal.”~ Plh

The title of this article does sound rather stark, doesn’t it? Sadly, lots of truth going on “out there” to support this. Bullies who bully, Saddists with sick hurtful and just plain wrong agendas and Power Brokers who utilize our fears to achieve their goals, definitely not for the benefit of humanity or any other life form,  but rather to supply the demand of the greedy.

So what to do BE FEARLESS!

1. Remember the word “WE” needs to be inclusive for all of us to profit. Not exclusive depending on race, location, background, education, gender, age or any other thing that far too often can separate us (as humans) from each other.

2. Know that most of us are caring, loving, generous and extremely capable of awesome ingenuity, intellect, integrity, creativeness and productivity.

3. Hang out with the #2 group. Which is the majority of us (whew!). And most especially,  Don’t allow fear to control your actions. Be fearless, for yourself and others. Be true to fairness, loving values, and gratitude.

And as for the rest? Believe in you and your innate ability to not only make a positive difference, but to be happy and successful with all that you seek to do and be, regardless of naysayers!

As one of you, I wish you the very best in your endeavors. You are not alone!

Thank you. Have an awesome weekend.

With much love to you,

One Would Like to Believe In …

123onedoes

One would like to believe in our fellow man

One would like to believe in the good

One would like to believe all will end well

One would like to believe that it should.

One would like to believe in tomorrow

and not worry so much just because

One  is hopeful and prayful and grateful

One would like to believe and … ONE DOES!

~ Plh, 2015

Have a wonderful life and always remember ~ take care of you!

With much affection,
