“The wold would never amount to a hill of beans
if people didn’t use their imaginations
to think of the impossible.”
Quote: Dance First, Think Later
the best thing you can do for yourself, for those you love and for the world…is BE HAPPY. Happiness can be contagious. If you’re happy, others will be happy as well and if a lot of us are happy, it will keep spreading until more and more people are happy and that’s something we can do for each other in the coming year. It’s free, you don’t need equipment or signs, you don’t need any gear or weird clothing and it doesn’t take any time at all…it’s portable and weighs nothing. You can take it anywhere you go and give it to anyone you like. So be happy and just by BEING happy, others will be happy too and what a wonderful thing that will be.
The flowers remind me that spring will actually return…eventually. It’s ZERO outside and everything looks grubby from the snow melting and it’s patchy and there’s little color (no flowers or green). The beautiful trees reach toward the sky, their branches graceful and bare, except for the nests that are nestled there. Winter is wonderful, in its own way, but its ‘s COLD.
I don’t think we celebrate enough. Sure, big holiday celebrations that are driven by history or marketing are fun but I’m talking about everyday celebrations. Celebrating the little things in life adds zip to a day. A short happy dance to celebrate the last load of laundry or the changing of the sheets, makes things more fun to do. I think celebrations are a great way to enjoy life. You can celebrate anything. And, no, it’ doesn’t get tiring or boring…because you celebrate different things all the time. Like finding the perfect parking space, or having a delicious lunch. A few wiggles, arms over you head, a line from your favorite song, sung out loud and you have a party day, instead of a day that is average and repetitive. I like the fun that celebrating brings to life. Just a few times a day, to acknowledge joy and the silly part of life, can add a bit of sparkle to your daily existence.
“You” and “me” are just different points of view.
