Thought for the Day

Be committed to a full and happy life……..that means shifting your perspective when your thoughts bring you down.  That means asking yourself “Is there a wiser more enlightened way of looking at this seemingly negative situation?” While we must acknowledge our feelings we can also speak gently to ourselves and nudge ourselves towards enjoying the journey and savouring the memories as we go along.  When one experiences the loss of someone in their lives it profoundly changes their “normal” and they must learn to be comfortable and gain the richness out of their new normal…..all of that takes time to get to that place where the pain is a little more gentle and the smiles come a little more readily as you lovingly enjoy your memories of how that  person impacted your life and what they taught you that you will never lose… honour their spirit with a celebration of them and then pay it forward……….create memories for those in your life… day what you have created in their memory bank will need to serve them well.  Kahil Gibran observed “When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.”
