Instant Inspiration/Timeless Wisdom
It is so easy to feel as if life is not worth living when we focus on what we do not have instead of being grateful for what we do have. It’s time to realise that to make life the exciting adventure that it is supposed to be we must learn to celebrate life.
You woke up this morning. Celebrate, many did not.
You have a job. Celebrate, many do not.
You can read and write. Celebrate, many cannot.
You have shoes. Celebrate, many do not.
You have someone who loves you. Celebrate, many feel totally unloved.
You have someone to love. Celebrate, many are lonely.
You have a roof over your head. Celebrate, many sleep in the streets.
You will have dinner tonight. Celebrate, many will go to bed hungry.
You have a warm bed. Celebrate, many do not.
You are alive. Celebrate, it is only by being alive that opportunities are discovered and dreams realised.
You are the creator of your destiny. Celebrate.
Just remember you cannot be happy while you are unhappy about not having the things that you think you need to make you happy. The only way to be happy is to be aware of all the things that you do have, to be grateful for having them and to celebrate your good fortune.
What else can you find to celebrate?
I found this on the net right after we got our little puppy home and it tells just how I feel !
A Stump For A Tail
You can’t buy loyalty, they say,
I bought it though, the other day;
You can’t buy friendship, tried and true,
Well, just the same, I bought that too.
I made my bid, and on the spot
Bought love and faith and a whole job lot
Of happiness,so all in all
The purchase price was pretty small.
I bought a single, trusting heart,
That gave devotion from the start.
If you think these things are not for sale,
Buy a brown-eyed puppy with a stump for a tail.
Happiness is a fragile thing
It’s thinner than the thinnest string
You feel the happiest one on a day
The very next instant it’s all blown away
Things happen that you don’t understand
They frightens you more than you can hardly stand
The tears are just a word from now
You want your fair not to show
You have no clue what to do
More than pray for things to come through
Please help my dear one back to a normal mood
And all the strange feelings go for good
