Mid-Week Encouragement

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all! The videos I have chosen for this post are:

The GIVE Project Gives Juice to the Homeless

What Happens When you Leave a Tetherball in the Forest

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

Happiness is a choice.  Not a result.  Nothing will make you happy...until you choose to be happy.  No person will make you happy...unless you decide to be happy.  Your happiness will not come to you.  It can only come from you. - Ralph Marston


Please know this now:  although you might be struggling right now, some day you'll look back and see how all you went through changed your life for the better.


A mistake should be your teacher, not attacker.  It is simply a detour, not a dead end.


Every day, think as you wake up, today I am fortunate to be alive.  I have a precious human life. I'm not going to waste it.  I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others:  to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings.  I am going to have kind thoughts towards others.  I am not going to get angry or think badly about others.  I am going to benefit others as much as I can. - Dalai Lama


Today, be grateful for the cozy, little moments in life.




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

  2. Words about happiness is true. If we are not kept our mind to be happy who ever tries to make us happy it will be waste. Everything is in our own hands. Enjoyed seeing the video of the terrifying ball...
