Watching the birds coming to the feeders in the garden every day, and how everything changes as the seasons go by.
By focusing on what I have and not what I feel I have lost.
All the myriad ways that life expresses itself on this amazing planet, from huge trees to tiny microscopic creatures.
Keep to a vegan diet and not waste any food. Change from plastic bottled shower gel and shampoo to soap. Re-use any plastic bags that come my way. Recycle everything that can be recycled. Think before buying – do I need it?
My wish is that everyone would open their eyes to the abuse, suffering and cruelty of factory farming and meat production. That people would find love and compassion in their hearts for all beings 🙏
My body is asking me to be kind to it and rest more. I have an illness which is very disabling and I get bored and impatient with my limitations.
I know that I am part of, and connected to, everything in existence.
If I can feel joyful about something during my day it changes what is an ordinary, mundane day into a beautiful day. It is always surprising how such small things can change one’s whole day and the joy I feel can also change someone else’s day if it rubs off on them!
I show respect for others by treating them as I would wish to treated; with love, kindness and understanding.
I am being supported everyday by care workers who come to my home and make sure I am safe and well and make my meals so I have the food I want to eat. The connection I have with them really enriches my life and maybe theirs too?
Thank you, Trish. This has really helped me today ❤️
Thank you for that beautiful poem, Ed ❤️
When I read the Word for Today I thought how important it is to actually say to people that we love them or appreciate them, not just assume that they know this because we are smiling or being kind. A loving, appreciate word goes a long way towards another’s happiness 😊
Kathy, you made me chuckle 😊 xx
🤗 Just for you, Ed!
That’s wonderful, Kevin. Your story made me smile 😊
Me, three! 😄
Pilgrim, I am in the same position as you, dear friend. May we both find acceptance and gratitude in our particular circumstances.
Love and blessings 🦋
Wise words, Kevin, thank you.
