warmth of summer sun
butterfly basks in the glow
breaks free, flies alone
I just ♥ the word: halcyon.
And sadly, that power is often forgotten when it is needed most.
I always try to dwell on good thoughts these days; focusing on what’s positive, throughout each day.
I also strive to let go of the petty annoyances that come up; in the big picture, they really mean little or nothing at all.
That kind of positive energy and thought pattern can also have a profound effect on how we are feeling and on our overall health. I know personally just how well this works.
I’ve “been there” when it comes to talking about and dwelling on every little ache and pain and my larger health concerns too, over the years. I know now without any doubt, that dwelling on health and wellness at all times DOES impact reality in significant ways, if we stick with it.
If you haven’t already, try it! You will be amazed by the power of your subconscious mind if you let it work its wonders.
We reached 34C, one day last week and more warm weather is apparently on the way, very soon.
Right now we are having a bit of a cool spell, with rain and that’s welcome too. 🙂 Takes care of all the dust!
Hope you enjoy these three summer haiku/haiga from the archives, celebrating all things to come. It’s going to be a good summer, I just know it! 😉
Have a Wonderful Week!
They seem like such happy flowers, with their bright, yellow “faces”! 😉
I hope this photo brings a smile to your day/weekend.
And I hope the sun is shining bright where you are too. Looks like a nice weekend coming up, here in BC.
Have a Safe and Happy weekend!
I wrote this quote in a journal I have, many years ago and happened to read it again this morning.
It was a timely reminder for me, I hope you enjoy it too.
We really DO need to take time not only to “seize” each day, but also to celebrate the high points, victories, wins..each and every night. It can put a whole new perspective on the days to come too.
Some very wise words to start my day today, thanks to “ME and the Boss”.
I hope you find them helpful too.
Have a great week. 🙂
“Every day we should
hear at least one little song,
read one good poem,
see one exquisite picture,
and, if possible,
speak a few sensible words.”
~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Always headlong into
must do this for the family,
must do that for the boss,
don’t wait until you retire,
today, do something for yourself.
There is always time, a second or two,
that you can squeeze into your day to do
something nice for yourself,
if you just take the time.
Happiness is a few sensible words.
Happiness is helping someone help themselves.
ME and the Boss
This is a poem from the archives and my first attempt at Tanka poetry.
I hope you enjoy it for the first time, or perhaps, once again! 😉
It has definitely “thawed” here in BC, only a bit of snow left up on the higher mountains. Everything else is starting to bloom! 🙂
