When we feel love and kindness toward others, it not only makes others feel loved and cared for, but it helps us also to develop inner happiness and peace.

Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries.  

Without them, humanity cannot survive.

When we meet real tragedy in life, we can react in two ways – either by losing hope and falling into self-destructive habits, or by using the challenge to find out inner strength.

I have had busy weeks and even in my  holiday I have been busy so I haven’t been reading blogs as much lately.

I had my God – Daughter staying with me and I showed her around London.  We had a great time together and so much fun, saw many places, went to the Theatre, visited Mme Tussauds, shopped in Harrods (not really)  and walked miles to see the typical London sites.  She liked it very much and wants to come again, I am very happy!

 In Madame Tussauds I met some great people:

I had breakfast at Tiffany’s with Audrey Hepburn

This was our Christmas Party in the Holiday Inn where I worked for 2 years.

Our children

School is starting again, our children go back to be educated.

Do remember though:

If we are worried about the future,
then we must look today
at the upbringing of children.

Don’t handicap your children, by making their lives easy.

It’s not our job to toughen our children up
to face a cruel and heartless world.
It’s our job to raise children
who will make the world
a little less cruel and heartless.
L.R. Knost

♥♫♥

All children should be taught
to unconditionally accept, approve,
admire, appreciate, forgive, trust
and ultimately, love their own person.

Wishing everyone a good start to the school year

and an amazingly interesting peaceful and joyful year!

What is Happiness

Standard

I received a late Christmas parcel , which had this in it…

chocolates

Isn’t it beautiful how they get you with the English words on a Swiss chocolate, bought in Germany….

I love “I make you Tummy Yummy”……. I thought this is happiness.

Really this is only chocolate which makes you feel good, comfort food and stimulating endorphins.

So What is Happiness:

Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.

Dalai Lama.

You are in charge of your own happiness:

Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.”
~Groucho Marx~

happiness

Happiness is a choice you make at the beginning of every day.

happiness2

“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.”   Mahatma Ghandi

I wish you a wonderful and happy week to come,

let yourself shine and bring happiness to others.

The Paradox of our Times – Dalai Lama

Standard

THE PARADOX OF OUR TIMES~~~~~Dalai Lama

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We have taller buildings, but shorter tempers,
Wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints,
We spend more, but we have less.

We have bigger houses, but smaller families,
More conveniences, but less time,
We have more degrees, but less sense,
More knowledge, but less judgement,
More experts, but more problems,
More medicines, but less wellness.

We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values,
We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often,
We have learnt how to make a living, but not a life,
We have added years to life, but not life to years,
We’ve been all the way to the moon and back,
But have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbour,
We have conquered outer space, but not inner space,
We’ve cleaned up the air, but polluted our soul,
We’ve split the atom, but not our prejudice,
We’ve higher incomes, but lower morals,
We’ve become long on quantity but short on quality.

These are the times of tall men, and short character,
Steep profits, and shallow relationships,
These are the times of world peace, but domestic warfare,
More leisure, but less fun; more kinds of food, but less nutrition.

These are the days of two incomes, but more divorces,
Of fancier houses, but broken homes,
It is a time when there is much in the show window, and nothing in the stockroom.

A time when technology can bring this letter to you,
And a time when you can choose,
Either to make a difference …. or just hit, delete.

Dalai Lama
