don’t stand in the rain to hide your tears,

instead,

face the wind

so your tears can be felt by those

who need to know it is ok to cry……

Bless you for stopping by today, I always appreciate your visits.  I have decided to take a  summer break from blogging as my oldest daughter will be leaving for college in 6 weeks and I want to spend a lot more time away from my computer.  Time flies………don’t let it pass you by.

See you in September……..

Hello wonderful humans, I hope today is treating you well.

My question for you this week is a simple one.  Although I try to keep things upbeat, I have learned that one of the ways to heal to the best of our ability is to accept the present situation and go from there.

So, my question for you today is,  If you were given the chance to do ONE THING that you are no longer are able to do, what would it be, and have you found a suitable replacement?

When hatred wins, we all lose.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate:

only love can do that.

― Martin Luther King Jr.

 

In this world Hate never yet dispelled hate. Only love dispels hate. This is the law,

Ancient and inexhaustible.

– Gautama Buddha

We love because God first loved us. Whoever says, “I love God,” but hates his brother is a
liar. The one who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love the God whom
he has not seen.
– Jesus
The best among you is the one who doesn’t harm others with his tongue and hands.
– Prophet Muhammad

 

Retaliation is counter-poison and poison breeds more poison. The nectar of Love alone

can destroy the poison of hate.

– Mahatma Gandhi

 

It is easy to hate and it is difficult to love. This is how the whole scheme of things works.

All good things are difficult to achieve; and bad things are very easy to get.

– Confucius

Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness.
Kindness in giving creates love.
– Lao Tzu

 

I believe much trouble would be saved if we opened our hearts more.

– Chief Joseph
Racial prejudice, anti-Semitism, or hatred of anyone with different beliefs has no place in
the human mind or heart.
– Billy Graham

 

And where love ends, hate begins.

– Leo Tolstoy

living our best life – regret

Thinking about regrets, it is my guess that every person on this Earth could verbalize at least one thing they wished they had or had not done.  It is also my belief that having regrets in life is just part of being human.  We live, we learn, and if we never had a regret then I am not sure we would be truly living and/or learning.  We make the very best decision we can at the time and hope and pray for the best.

Now we know we can’t go back to re-create our past, but we can think about our future selves.  So my question for you today is, “What is something you will regret if you do not complete/accomplish/do in your lifetime?”

I know for many of us, how we can spend our perfect day may have changed over the years.  Even if the activities that we can participate in have changed, we can still enjoy OUR lives to the fullest, especially when we are having a good day!  So my friends, my question for you this week is, “Describe how you would spend your perfect day?”

~ Thank you for taking the time to stop by and comment.  I hope today is treating you well.

Hello wonderful human beings.

My question for you today is a simple one.  Although I try to keep things upbeat, I have learned through a lot of trial and error that in order for me to heal to the best of my ability, I must first accept my present situation and go from there.  So, my question for you today is, “What has been the most difficult thing for you to accept on your chronic journey?”
