Being loved

"To know someone really loves you and to TRUST that... to let them love you the way they love you not the way you wanna be loved. Being in love is like being high, and that has to transform into love. That state is like snorting coke, its not a state you can be in all the time. And things happen between people, sometimes its amazing, sometimes you're bored and sometimes you're angry. And "in love" doesnt go through those times, but "love" does. It's like that movie Blue Valentine. It takes tolerance at love, it takes reality at life, it takes ppl that wanna create happiness around too" - Roberta Haze

I click my fingers to live in the now

and it sure works! the past is over and the future never comes, all we have is an ever present NOW. Seize it. Something I learned while taking the "Art of living" course is that everytime my mind starts to wonder away from my now or present situacion I should click my fingers right infront of me, it makes me come back and focus on my present situation.

That has been one of the easiest ways to practice happiness as well. I take myself back to where I am at that exact moment, I take a deep breath look out the window, stare at the sky, or turn around and see beautiful romeo laying next to me, my basic needs taken care of, a world of possibility and creativity at my reach I breath again, smile and think 'I AM IMMENSELY HAPPY'

Ocean Addict

For me, there is nothing more beautiful in this reality than the ocean! Im addicted to it. Droned to it. Wether it is to go and surf or just sit by the shore and contemplate. I take and collect pictures of it. I have a folder full of them and I go through it everytime Im not at my best. Its instant joy for me. It reminds me right away of the most amazing moments Ive shared in it and by it, and how beautiful life can be.

I have been SO inspired lately! I hadnt felt like this in a while, and it only took a small shift of perspective from me, once again, waking up to the amazing power of CHOICE and knowing you are in full control of your life. Simply choosing happiness. Dont undermind the strength of JOY it is contagious. Those around you will feel it, see it, taste it! and it will get to them!

Letting go...

Sometimes I have such a hard time letting go of things. And its so very important to be ready to let go of things that DONT make you happy. Thoughts. I always think about two simple rules my dad once told me about whenever a thought strikes: You should always ask 1) is this really true? 2) how does it make me feel? If its not true or if it doesnt make me feel anything but great, then I should drop it. There’s no point to it. See we must not argue with things. Things just are. We must not dwell on things too much, for it will be nothing but a complication.
I have a hard time doing this sometimes. I tend to over think or be a bit dramatic about stuff. So new life task is:

This is me, and maybe you!

Some people do not have to search, for they find their niche early in life and rest there seemingly contented and resigned.
At times, I envy them but usually I do not understand them…
And seldom do they understand me.
I am one of those searchers.
There are, I believe, millions of us. We are not unhappy, but neither are we completely content.

We continue to explore ourselves, hoping to understand.
We like to walk along the beach; we are drawn to the ocean, taken by its power and unceasing motion, its mystery and unspeakable beauty.

We like forests, mountains, deserts, hidden rivers, and lovely cities as well. Our sadness is as much a part of our lives as our laughter. We are ambitious only for life itself and for anything beautiful it can provide.

Most of all, we want to love and be loved, to live in a relationship that will not impede our wanderings and prevent our search.
We do not want to prove ourselves to others or compete for love.

This passage is for wanderers, dreamers, and lovers who dare to ask of life everything which is good and beautiful

What does love mean?

A group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 year-olds, "What does love mean?"

The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined.

"When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn't bend over and paint her toenails anymore. So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too. That's love." Rebecca- age 8

"Love is what makes you smile when you're tired." Terri - age 4

"Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen." Bobby - age 7 (Wow!)

"If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend who you hate," Nikka - age 6

"During my piano recital, I was on a stage and I was scared. I looked at all the people watching me and saw my daddy waving and smiling. He was the only one doing that. I wasn't scared anymore." Cindy - age 8

"Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day." Mary Ann - age 4

"You really shouldn't say 'I love you' unless you mean it. But if you mean it, you should say it a lot. People forget." Jessica - age 8

And the final one -- Author and lecturer Leo Buscaglia once talked about a contest he was asked to judge. The purpose of the contest was to find the most caring child. The winner was a four year old child whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife. Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman's yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there. When his Mother asked what he had said to the neighbor, the little boy said, "Nothing, I just helped him cry"

When there is nothing left but Love, that is when you find out that Love is all you need :)

In this new upcoming year our best wish for you is to:

Follow your bliss
Practice gratitude
Hold space for other human beings and situations
Love yourself;
Look for love in everything, it will give you a new perspective on life

It is your choice to choose to be Happy :D

Believe in it, belive in yourself, BE yourself; whatever that means, wherever that path may lead you.

Do it all

Be it ALL
