There are so many wise quotes to select, but certain ones just seem to do the trick for me. Actually not a trick, but a working self therapy. Hope some of these find their way to you as well.
“Friends….They cherish one another’s hopes. They are kind to one another’s dreams.” Henry David Thoreau
“Gratitude is one of the most medicinal emotions we can feel. It elevates our moods and fills us with joy.” Living Positive
“What people call serendipity sometimes is just having your eyes open.” Jose Manuel Barroso
“There will always be serendipity involved in discovery.” Jeff Bezos
“Love is, above all, the gift of oneself.” Jean Anouith
“I had a second birth when my soul and my body loved one another and were married.” Kahlil Gibran
Just a few to ponder………. In April I will be having a milestone birthday that I will address when the cold eases and spring has arrived. Seems more appropriate to write about that coming of age when life is budding , than in the freezing barren winter. One thing I have learned over the years is how to take care of myself. If one is fortunate to have good health……… then most of the time, you can heal yourself, emotionally and physically. Not all of course, but enough where holistic healing and nutritional caring give back to you. Since my husbands sudden death over ten years ago, I began the quest for emotional housecleaning and wrote Friendship Garden. Necessary to surround yourself with positive people. You nourish each other. I try very hard to weed the toxic plants, leaving just emotional beauty. I cherish my family and friends, and the bonus??? The feelings come right back. Toxic people are just plain toxic to themselves and others. . Positive over the negative. The ones who “get you” are keepers. Be very careful who you let in. I have always said the heart and brain must work together as a team. One without the other is lost, and doesn’t work very well. At my age, to have people call you wise is a compliment beyond description. Wisdom doesn’t automatically arrive at the same time as age. That is not a given. Wisdom is using life’s experiences, knowledge, good judgement, and common sense. To be inspiring is to be joyful.
For the New Year, may we all use wisdom in our judgements and learn to trust our intuition. For those who believe…….that ” thing” called intuition? Our guardian angel whispering.
