These Halcyon Days….

                     

                                warmth of summer sun                                 

                                       butterfly basks in the glow                                       

 breaks free, flies alone
                                                        

This photo and haiku (the haiku is one I wrote) always bring to mind “halcyon days” for me.

     I just ♥  the word: halcyon

The warmth, the calm and tranquil beauty of a butterfly, basking in the sun. 
We are currently enjoying “halcyon days” here in BC, sunny and warm fall weather; so beautiful. 
Yesterday, I was out and about in a sleeveless dress, late in the afternoon!! That’s a warm October, for here in Canada. 😉
                             
                        

♥♥♥

hal·cy·on:
1. A kingfisher, especially one of the genus Halcyon.
2. A fabled bird, identified with the kingfisher, that was supposed to have had the power to calm the wind and the waves while it nested on the sea during the winter solstice.
adj.
1. Calm and peaceful; tranquil.
2. Prosperous; golden: halcyon years.

An Inspiring Quote for the Weekend :-)

wellness thoughts

The mind-body connection is so powerful. 🙂

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.

The body/mind connection. It works for or against us, every day. The choice is ours.

Have a Happy and Healthy Weekend! 🙂

Summer has certainly been “in the air” here in BC, in the past couple of weeks.

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!

An Inspiring Quote for the Weekend…

seize the day

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. 

Have a wonderful and creative weekend, G 🙂

Sensible

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. 🙂

ME and the Boss

.

“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
