Holding to Happy Thoughts

A few years ago I received the most wonderful, holiday greeting in the mail. Along with an 8×10 sheet of adorable, fun-filled, family pictures came another 8×10 sheet of “famous thoughts” gathered by sender.

I remember reading the list of quotes and finding it both heartwarming and thought provoking. I felt so grateful that our friend would take the time to collect and offer up such inspirational thoughts. Back then, several of those quotes really penetrated my heart, and I chose one as a personal affirmation and inspiration for the coming year. It was a good idea then and it’s a good idea now. I’m going to do it again and invite you to do the same.

In this season of hustle and bustle, remember to take time to center and clarify your thoughts and your goals. And now, enjoy these encouraging words!

There is beauty in your presence. A relaxed mind is a creative mind. Exercise is your way to more happiness. Never utter a wrong word, think a wrong thought or wish a wrong wish. Your heartbeat is the rhythm of your soul. The art of happiness is to serve all. When you are in tune with the unknown, the known is peaceful. Happiness comes when you overcome the most impossible challenge. Goodness should become human nature, because it is real in nature. You must live for something higher, bigger and better than you. Work, but don’t forget to live. Inspiring others towards happiness brings you happiness. It’s not life that matters; it’s the courage that we bring to it. Do not live by emotions; instead live by intuition and consciousness. An attitude of gratitude brings opportunities. Greatness is measured by your gifts, not your possessions. Happiness is when what you think, what you say and what you do are in harmony. Be kind and compassionate and the whole world will be your friend. Let your manners speak, your deeds prove and your delivery impress. Our thoughts are forming the world. Feel great, act great, and approve of yourself. May you have love, kindness and compassion for all living things. Wisdom becomes knowledge when it is personal experience. Where there is love, there is no question. Your greatness is not what you have; it’s what you give. Delight the world with compassion, kindness and grace. You will never find happiness if you do not conquer your own doubt. If your word does not reflect your spirit and honor, do not speak. Those who live in the past limit their future. Your intuition is your best friend. The beauty in you is your spirit. You will feel fulfilled when you do the impossible for someone else. The purpose of life is to enjoy every moment.

Commit to finding and being fully present to moments of joy!

Wishing you many wonderful blessings for a Happy Holiday Season,  Plynn
