A new day

Standard

Often the day begins the way we start it.

Rushing around in the morning makes the whole day stressful.

morning

A happy day begins with happy thoughts.

So try to start your day happy,calm and peacefully.

How about:

a few stretches

giving thanks for a new day,

a short meditation or visualization about the day ahead,

smile to yourself in the mirror,

breathe in joy, happiness, light and health

breath out tiredness, negative thoughts and burdens.

Enjoy a cup of warm lemon water,

energize yourself with a healthy breakfast.

Now the new day can begin!

Groucho Marx says:

“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.”

Welcome every morning with a smile.

Look on the new day as another special gift from your Creator,

another golden opportunity to complete 

what you were unable to finish yesterday.

Be a self-starter.

Let your first hour set the theme of success

and positive action that is certain to echo

through your entire day.

Today will never happen again.

Don’t waste it with a false start or no start at all.

You were not born to fail.

Og Mandino

 

Have an amazing day!

 

 

 

 

 

For you!

Steffi from The Kokopelli bee free blog had this idea.

We all go through ups and downs in our life and sometimes need some help which is not always straight there.  So we can help each other.

I know that all my blogging friends do help me with happiness in my life with reading your blogs and comments I find lots of inspiration there.

Lets give the gift of inspiration to each other , helping and encouraging each other through our blogs.

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

“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.
