Intensely grateful for still being able to smile & laugh, sometimes even more intensely after having a brain tumour removed 5 years ago.
The feeling of bringing a smile to others.
Step outside the door, walk through to the woods, breathe & simply listen.
Those moments in Spring,
when the birds start to sing,
and the leaves on the trees start to grow,
for this is the time
when the Earth starts to shine,
and nature doth smile, says hello.
The Art of Happiness- the Dalai Lama
My apologies for those out there who suffer chronic pain, as this must be horrific.
My own personal experience is that pain is a warning signal from the body saying, “enough!” This in turn makes me grateful for the pain, in that ‘the pain’ protects me from causing more permanent damage.
Simply try to encompass every second in an attempt to bring joy to the planet.
I have a sometimes rather annoying habit of constantly searching for answers, whether via literature, nature, whatever. And 9 times out of 10 when I get tired of searching, the answers come to me in a flash, thus enriching my point of view.
Put on your walking shoes and go out and embrace the spring nature.
Simply smile 😊
Newton’s 3rd law, ‘every action has an equal and opposite reaction’ always springs to mind whenever I doubt.
For some, almost mystical reason, something happens thus completely contradicting my lack of faith. A sort of comforting hand if you like. A wonderful feeling!
