Happy Thoughts – Enjoy today

Just a short post today… A micro blog post… stream of thought! Just something that came to me & I wanted to pass it along.

Today’s Wisdom Bit…

Let’s enjoy nature and Nature’s beauty. Enjoy each day and not just wish our lives away. We are blessed. Plan for the future but take each day as it comes.

How do you feel about that? How do you keep yourself grounded and focused on the now… enjoying life, the ups and downs, the people you meet and live with, the challenges, your dreams and hopes, and your me/alone time.

Feel free to share and comment!

Bless.

How to Make Progress in Life

How To Make Progress in Life

There’s an anonymous saying that the only time you should look back is to see how far you have come.
Sometimes when we are having a bit of difficulty in life or a disappointment, or a delay seeing our plans come to fruition, we might be tempted look back and think that life was so much better in the past before we decided to take this path.
Or even worse, we might look back and think of all the times that we did not succeed.
I hold up my hand. I’ve been there.
Let’s approach that from a different direction. Let’s look back with gratitude on all good things that we did in the past that led us to this point.
If we do that, I’m pretty sure that we will see evidence of progress. Maybe we haven’t quite reached our desired goal, but we have learnt a lot along the way. We know more the correct action to take to move ahead.
It just takes a conscious shift in our mentality to look at what good points have occurred in our journey, rather than dwelling on how many times we fell. Think about all the times we got back up.
Did we take courses along the way to learn our craft, or read books, or speak to other professionals? That’s new knowledge that we have now that we didn’t have before.
When your mind, your feelings are scraping the bottom of the barrel, look up, look at the writing on the sides of that barrel. That’s your history. That’s your journey. That’s your progress no matter how small. Use those memories to climb back up those walls and move on.
Oprah Winfrey said “be thankful for what you have and you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you’ll never ever have enough.”
If you keep looking back to verify that you’re a failure, you end up staying there. Look back at your successes to see and reaffirm how far you have come, and take that confidence to move on, and enjoy your life!
It’s so easy to look back and make ourselves sad or disappointed in our current situation. Do you have any tips to share on how you pull yourself out of that hole?
How do you turn it around and look at how far you have come, instead of how far you have to go?

Happy Thoughts – A visit to Glastonbury’s Chalice Well

It’s nice to end the year in a positive space. In this case that meant a visit to (England’s) Glastonbury and Chalice Well and Gardens.

Hug A Tree!

It’s said that the Well is among the best known and most loved holy wells in Britain.
It’s really lovely and peaceful. There are lots of nooks and crannies where you can sit quietly and meditate in peaceful silence.

Sit and chill

If you go to the Lions Head Drinking Fountain you can fill up your bottle with the special water . This is the only place in the garden water is safe to drink. It comes from the spring and is tested for quality and safety so we can indulge in drinking the cleansing healing water, and taking some away with us.

The Lion’s Head

Another lovely thing to do is to walk in the healing pool. It’s been there since the middle of the 18th century. And you can see that the water contains iron. Be warned that it’s a bit cold but you get used to it. It’s very stimulating!

Leading to the Healing Pool

Cold but stimulating!

There is also the Well Head you can sit quietly and absorb the energy. It has a Vesica Pisces design with a Lance passing through it. This is an ancient sacred symbol of two interlocking circles and it symbolises a union of heaven and earth, or spirit and matter.

They’ve got a really lovely gift shop as well.
If you’re in Glastonbury the Chalice Well is a good place to quiet yourself, catch your breath, and just enjoy a bit of peaceful mindfulness before head back into town for some groovy shopping experiences!
All is well in Glasto.

Happy Thoughts – Happy Holidays

I hope your holiday season is off to a good start. If it’s getting too frantic, just step back and take a break! 😊🎄

Here’s a little something to help you chill. It’s an audio reading by myself of “The Elves and the Shoemaker” by The Brothers Grimm.

This a Christmas story from my Positive Affirmations And Audio Stories podcast. It’s for children and all ages. It’s about a shoemaker and some very helpful Elves.
Watch out for the singsong! ☺️

Merry Christmas

and Happy Holidays!

Happy Thoughts – Be In the Now!

The secret of change is to Focus all of your energy not on fighting the old but on building the new. Socrates
Recently I have had some health challenges that prevented me from keeping up with you on this happy thoughts blog.
It made me feel quite depressed, mostly unhappy. Because the many  things that I could do before I became unwell, that I couldn’t do.
Then I got a change in my thyroid medicine and some other issues were addressed as well.
As my mood increased I began to understand that I needed to focus not on what I used to be able to do,  but what I could do now.
open arms
And that’s the way it goes sometimes. Sometimes having a happy thought means not just been uber positive,  but letting oneself go through the tunnel of Darkness; and ones natural Instinct for optimism and survival will eventually see you through.
As Socrates said focus on the now. Don’t fight what you can’t do that you used to do. Take those baby steps if you need to get back into good health mentally, spiritually and physically.
Bit by bit you will eventually get better. Be grateful for whatever you have at any point in time. There is always something to be grateful for. And then put in the effort, as you are able, to bring yourself back into balance, and once again enjoying life. Take those baby steps if you need to. Exercise to the extent that you can. Read and listen to positive material as soon as you are able.
Progress doesn’t have to be made in leaps and bounds. Have supportive people around you as you come back to your self.
Have you ever felt like you were in a dark place? And you really regret not functioning as you did in your old life?  How did you resolve that? If we can move on – one step forward two steps backwards sometimes, with patience and gratitude  you can climb that hill & be here now with joy and enthusiasm.
And that’s it for today.
Here’s an audio version of the podcast on this subject!

Happy Thoughts – An Oracle Card reading for us for 20 November 🙋🏽

I asked the Universe “What’s the energy coming towards us tomorrow (20 Nov)” & card 2, “How can we work with it”.

This reading is done with one of my favourite decks “Angel Prayers Oracle cards” by Kyle Gray.

Card 1 was Transformation with Angel Zadkiel. Past challenges don’t have to hold us back. We can learn from them, improve our skills, and move on. Angel Zadkiel is helping us to grow positively.

Card 2 is The Divine Father. He (she) is with us helping us to create our best life. So relax, and listen to our inner voice/intuition on right actions to take. We definitely have to DO something, change doesn’t happen by itself.😊

It’s all good! Bless
