Happy 2016!!!

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all! Happy 2016 to you all!  Love and hugs.  :)

I am providing the link sources beneath each photo. You just need to click on the images to see a larger view.

The dreams of your heart are your soul whispering..."Go this way."


Lessons from a Christmas tree...twinkle.  Share your gifts.  Bring joy to others.  Be a light in the darkness. We all fall over sometimes.  You were born to sparkle...even if your garland's a little droopy.  It's okay to be a little tilted.




Happiness is not a race.  You are not running late to be somewhere.  The purpose of life is to use your time on this planet to gather insights and grow. And it takes time to treasure-hunt those insights in all those dark-hard-to-see places.  It takes time to spurt growth.  It takes time to become who you want to be...and know who you want to be.  All the time you've been living through so far - it is all time well spent.  You've been very, very busy doing life - doing insights - doing growth.


You know those snowglobes, that you shape up, and the snow's everywhere, blocking the view of the scenery inside?  That blizzardy snowglobe is your mind during stress.  If you want to see the world clearly, you must allow that snow to settle.  You can do this by taking time to meditate or breathe.


Cheers to all those people who just want to be themselves and don't care about fitting in.


There is no pillow as soft as a clear conscience. - French Proverb


Your mission:  let go of what no longer serves you. Appreciate what you have.  Get curious and excited about what's coming.


It's touch when you know you need to let go but you're holding onto hope that the impossible will happen.


Don't give up.  Not yet.  There is a whole life ahead of you.


Sometimes you just have to talk with a 5 year old to remind yourself what true happiness is all about.


You don't need someone to complete you.  You want someone to accept you completely.


Be patient.  Good things take time.  Please try to trust that everything comes in the right time in the right way.


Stop.  Breathe.  Cry if you must.  Head up.  Stay strong.  Fake a smile.  Feel the smile.  Move on.


Thank you all so much for visiting me here!  Happy New Year!!!  I always enjoy and appreciate reading your kind thoughts, which you are always welcome to share!

  36. You're so right about knowing when to let go. Sometimes, I let go, but still let a little hope in the back door, just in case the door reopens. If it is meant to be, it will come back, right? I hope your Christmas celebrations were extra special. I'm beginning to emerge from this last exacerbation, and hope to be visiting more regularly, soon! Happy New Year! hugs, de
