People and places…

But the most beautiful things in life are not just things…

They’re people and places, memories and pictures.

They’re feelings and moments and smiles and laughter.

Beautiful simple things…

The beautiful simple things…



Flowers
Long hugs
Shy smiles
Smell of rain
Starry nights
Falling in love
Holding hands
Getting lost in a book
Random acts of kindness
Leaves falling from the trees
The smell of freshly-cut grass
Morning mist on untouched fields

Less not more…

Less not more…

 

Less TV, more reading

less shopping, more outdoors

less clutter, more space

less rush, more slowness

less consuming, more creating

less junk, more real food

less busywork, more impact

less driving, more walking

less noise, more solitude

less focus on the future,

more on the present

less work, more play

less worry, more smiles

We often spend the first three quarters

of our life collecting more and more things

and the last quarter of our life trying to get rid of

all those things that we didn’t really need anyway.

 

Make sure you are spending your time

doing what you love doing before your life is over

and it’s too late to make the changes.

 

Time goes by so fast…

Break the chain…

Break the chain…

 

Hurt people hurt people.

That’s how pain patterns

get passed on, generation

after generation.  Break the chain

today.  Meet anger with

sympathy, contempt with

compassion, cruelty with

kindness.  Greet grimaces

with smiles.  Forgive and

forget about finding fault.

Love is the weapon of the 

future.

We are all shaped by our past experiences.

Our childhood has such an impact on us because those who were more powerful had control over us.

They enforced their thoughts and rules upon us whether they were fair to us or not.

  • They sometimes got angry and we were their target.
  • They sometimes got mean and we were their target.
  • They sometimes got cruel and we were their target.

 

In other words, they weren’t perfect at all.

They passed on the things that their parents and authority figures taught them.

They felt that they were in control and that they were responsible for you and your actions.

So they did the same things that others had done to them.  Perhaps they even added a little more enforcement to make sure that you would remember the “lesson”.

 

It takes looking at the past with new eyes of understanding to see what they may have intended for us.

To see that they were faulted and frail, human and hurt, themselves.

So they did the best they could at the time, and the fact that we ended up with less than a completely loving, enlightened parent was just a result of their past.

And that doesn’t justify the way we were treated, it doesn’t undo the hurt we felt.

It doesn’t justify unfair behavior at all.

 

But it does give us new choices as we learn to understand the position they were in at the time.

That we have the option of letting the past go and living a better feeling life

                 ~ right now ~

 

Of thinking about what we can do to treat others better in our life.

Of thinking about how we can treat others better every day.

Of thinking about why we want to treat others better in our life.

 

Breaking the chain of the past pain patterns.

 

Replacing the old way of thinking and doing

with new ways of expressing Sympathy and Compassion,

Kindness and Love.

 

Letting LOVE be the weapon of the future.

Replacing old patterns with new ones.

Ones that serve you and allow you to forget the past and everything bad that has happened to you

and live with peace, harmony and freedom today.

Appreciate what you have.

 


As you waste your breath

complaining about life

someone out there is

breathing their last.

Appreciate what you have.

Be thankful and stop complaining.

Live more, complain less.

Have more smiles, less stress.
