The ABC of Genuine Happiness

U – Unleash your strength

Strength is not something others can give you but something you have deep within you. It often gets put aside or forgotten because we allow ourselves to become dependent on those around us. Never question whether you have the strength you need to make it through any difficulties because you do! YOU are stronger than you give yourself credit for being and YOU will make it through if you believe that you will. The strength comes from the knowledge that you will be alright. Believe in yourself and the strength to overcome will come with it.

True strength is keeping everything together when everyone expects you to fall apart.

u1

You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have.

u3

Be strong!


… to be continued ….

Wishing you  an  unique and upbeat day!

Today is Mindfulness Day !

Standard

Wishing you a great Mindfulness Day!

Mindfulness is the energy of awareness. It’s being conscious of the existing moment. Of living life deeply throughout each day and being fully alive, right here, right now. It is connecting with what we do and also with what and who is around us.

Jon Kabat-Zinn puts it a bit better
‘Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment and non judgmentally’

The most precious gift, we can offer others is our presence.

When mindfulness embraces those we love, they will bloom like flowers.

Thich Nhat Hanh
