Give but don’t allow yourself to be used. Love but don’t allow your heart to be abused. Trust but don’t be naive. Listen to others but don’t lose your own voice.

Be helpful. When you see a person without a smile… give them yours.

The ABC of Genuine Happiness

F – Feel your emotions. Face fear

happiness15

We feel many emotions day in day out and sometimes we suppress them and sometimes we let go….

We learn how to cope with some like anger, heart ache, grief and sadness which are hardest. The happy emotions we do not have so many problems with.

Talking or crying are good outlets to release emotions and to understand them better.

You can do anything you put your heart, mind and soul into. Far more than you can imagine. Be fearless. Do it.

Bad day? – start afresh

Standard

stressed

Oh don’t worry … I have calmed down…. but I have to tell you this:

After a long hard working week we have lost everything which was on our computers including all the emails. We are …. no my son is working hard to get things back to normal. After the first shock I realised that I did put some stuff on disks and some on a USB stick, so I do have my favourite things. 🙂 My smile is back. Well technology is not so great sometimes after all.  And yes we are going to change how we work…… and will get things up to a cloud….. yay…. and it won’t be a rainy cloud…… it will the happy smiley one you see every day when you look up in the sky!

Rolling smiley photo c05107.gif

So I say we lost all our past emails and everything what we had ever saved…. but now is the time to start afresh…..

I have got all my wonderful friends, enough food for dinner tonight, and the love people share with me.  My heart does not lose my feelings, my love for you and the gratitude I feel for everything I do have. Love is more important than anything material in this world.

Love is always the strongest magic in the world.

Ever had a bad hair day – a day when everything seemed to be going wrong? Perhaps today is a day to soothe your ruffled feathers – take a deep breath and reaffirm that the weight of the world is really not on your soulders unless you choose to assume that burden. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie.

then I realised that….Life does not have to be perfect to be wonderful.

stressed2

Each sunrise brings a new opportunity. No matter how bad the day before was, today is brand new. When you wake up, seek the strength and courage to do the right thing.

stressed1

If anyone is having a troublesome day today remember that we learn from it, we get stronger through it and we can start afresh anytime!  Stay strong, keep calm, and think of the love and beautiful things we always have!

You are loved!
