A Quick Break

Standard

….. a break with no internet …

That is what is on the agenda, after having worked rather hard lately.

Unfortunately I won’t be able to look at all posts, I will try on my phone though. 

I will be back in the cyber world soon  🙂

with a report of how much nothing I have done.

 

 

In the meantime I am hugging you all!

Declutter today

Standard

It is important that you declutter your home as we all know we keep too much.

Make space for the important things in your life.

Make space for things you really love and give you joy in life.

Decluttering emotionally is equally important.

Have enough space for the really important feelings and beliefs.

Seen on Facebook

Why not have a go today to get rid of negative beliefs,

negative thoughts and emotions.

Start fresh every day with positive thoughts and beliefs.

♥Have a wonderfully, positive day! ♥

Age

Standard

Age is of no importance unless you are a cheese.

Today I am cheesy  – it is an important day – my 60th Birthday.

So I collected some age related words and advice:

“Youth is happy because it has the capacity to see beauty. Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old.”
― Franz Kafka

Today is the oldest you’ve been and the youngest you’ll ever be again.

They’re called the golden years for a reason. Getting older has its perks. For one, you’re good at using what you’ve learned. This is called crystalized intelligence, and it keeps getting better, even when you’re 65 or 70.

Older people might control their emotions better, and focus more on how to make the most of life.

You probably know that exercise and diet are important when it comes to aging well. But there is something else you control that can help you along: a positive attitude.Research shows more and more that your approach to life may be just as important in making your “golden years” your best years.

Aging: It’s in Your Mind

The Power of Optimism

It’s difficult to know what comes first — the good health or the positive attitude.

One possible answer is they build on each other: A rosy outlook may help you  exercise more and eat better. And that in turn helps you stay hopeful and happy because you feel better. You may hear that called a “virtuous circle.”

Optimism has been linked to living longer.

Things you can do include:

  •  Check yourself. If you’re having negative thoughts, pause and see whether there’s a better way to look at what’s bothering you.

  •  Seek out humor and laughter

  •  Make time for things that give you joy

  •  Find positive people and hang out with them

With this in mind,

help yourself to some cake and Champagne to celebrate with me.

Cheers!

Never give up – like Nature

Standard

I was walking through a forest with trees fallen down.

Yet still more growth comes through the trunk which lies on the forest ground.

It reminded me that

Nature never gives up.

new beginnings

Every day is a new beginning.

Take a deep breath, smile

and start again.

If you don't give up on something
you truly believe in,
you will find a way.
Roy T. Bennett
You should never give up.
No matter how hard the situation is,
always believe that
something beautiful is going
to happen.

If you are in a situation like that at the moment,

please know that you are not alone and you are precious and loved.

My best wishes for you

and may the rise for you soon again.

♥♥♥ Sending hugs and comfort to you ♥♥♥

Poem

Standard

The Magic Box

I will put in my box

Four lovely summers
A mouth watering chocolate land
Another world which is amazing

I will put in my box

A second sun which doesn't give out light
An ocean which has five wishes for every person
Water that dances when someone goes in it

I will put in my box

The sweet sound of the swooshing sea
A snowman that can survive in Summer
Someplace where the rain never falls

I will put in my box

A place where the rain always stays
A non polluted world
A never ending rain forest

My box is fashioned from gold and has a secret under the lid and under the inside floor

I shall surf in my box

On the lovely ocean and see it dance in front of me and catch some fish for dinner.

I found this poem in the attic while sorting out.

It was written by my son when he was 9 years old.

The time has come

Standard

It is time for rest,

it is time for fun,

it is time for enjoyment,

it is time to laugh,

it is time to dance,

it is time for just doing nothing – sometimes,

it is time to learn,

it is time to enjoy the world,

it is time to change.

The time has come.

I am retired.

What a feeling!

I am grateful to know that I have made a difference to 

the company and people I worked with.

I leave with a sense of achievement and happiness. 

 

 

Let’s celebrate life ♥ Each Day ♥

Standard

Each day is precious

Each day gives a new start

Each day gives new opportunities

Each day is a gift

We easily forget in our daily routine that

Each day needs to be celebrated.

When you arise in the morning

think of what a privilige it is to be alive –

to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love!

Marcus Aurelius

 

Wishing you an amazingly awesome day!
