QUOTE MOMENT: Smiles drive the sadness away


afterthoughts

Even at the saddest moment, we need to learn at least how to smile to one person, i.e. to ourselves.

I would always smile into the mirror, even at my saddest moment, not sure if it works for everyone, it definitely works for me. 

Till then, 

Smile and cheers!!😀

A superb quote I found this morning on social media, posted by a relative living here in London.

“Smile, even if it’s a sad smile, because sadder than a sad smile

is the sadness of not knowing how to smile.”

afterthoughts

When you arise in the morning,

think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive

– to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.

~ Marcus Aurelius

For someone with a chronic condition like myself, I think this is very true.

May this re-blog sharing pins a victorious smile on your lovely face.

Live life, Love Life!

Till then,

Cheers & TTFN~ 😀

Multitasking is tricky – it might seem that you are catching up to all the tasks, while in fact the quality of your work decreases. In the long run you start being less productive and more stressed out… Do one thing at a time!

A Beautiful Coincidence…

I used to being a multitasking lady but ever since my health has deteriorated, my multitasking skill decided to bail on me…LOL…

Anyway, after taking a very long break and as I opened my eyes this morning; my mind told me to take it slow and do one thing at a time so that everything will be done eventually, no matter how long it might take.

!!!TAADAAAA!!!!

I saw this beautiful post the moment I logged into WP because I was planning to draft a new post…what a beautiful coincidence indeed and I am thankful to be a follower of this enlightening blog.

Before I can finally finish my post, may this beautiful post sharing lighten whatever burden that is on your shoulders right now upon reading it.

Have a great and fun day ahead, always!

Till then,

Cheers & TTFN~ 😀

PS: So much things have changed in WP and I almost gotten lost in the process of trying to re-blog this post…LOL…it has really been a long long while, my dear friends!!!!  Thank you so much for still being with us all this while. Cheers!!! 🙂

 

Only allow good memories in your heart.


Bad memories may serve as many good reminders for not repeating bad/unnecessary histories in life; but if we were to let them rule the head for too long, we might find difficulties in taking the next step in creating another good memory.

I am glad to be able to read this post once again to remind myself of this point.

A big THANK YOU to this lovely soul for sharing her enlightening thoughts with us in her lovely blog ‘THE BEAUTY OF WORDS’.

Words are only alphabets, we are the ones choosing to turn them into a beauty or a beast.

Have a great week ahead with many opportunities to create more good memories to add to our happy lists.

Till then,

Cheers! ☺

The beauty of words.

Only allow good memories in your heart

In reality you can`t really get rid of bad memories but at least you will be able to accept that they occurred, look at the positive side of them and allow the good parts to stay in your heart. That`s the point where you`re in peace with yourself. Sharing memories with others also gives you enlightenment and makes you feel “lighter” and even happy. Allow it to happen and you`ll notice that also sharing makes you happier. Don`t let bad memories stay in your heart. They may become worse than they were before and may have bad effects in your life. In reality not all memories do have a positive outcome, so for those that don`t, remember that you have to keep looking ahead instead of sticking in the past, look forward and focus on the positive experiences.

The One Who Says “Ho Ho Ho”…


Santa Claus, also known as Saint Nicholas or simply “Santa”, is a figure with legendary, historical and folkloric origins who, in many Western cultures, is said to bring gifts to the homes of the good children on 24 December, the night before Christmas Day.

Santa Claus is generally depicted as a portly, joyous, white-bearded man—sometimes with spectacles—wearing a red coat with white collar and cuffs, white-cuffed red trousers, and black leather belt and boots and who carries a bag full of gifts for children.

Saint Nicholas of Myra was a 4th-century Greek Christian bishop of Myra in Turkey and was famous for his generous gifts to the poor, in particular presenting the three impoverished daughters of a pious Christian with dowries so that they would not have to become prostitutes.

During the Middle Ages, often on the evening before his name day of 6 December, children were bestowed gifts in his honour.

This date was earlier than the original day of gifts for the children, which moved in the course of the Reformation and its opposition to the veneration of saints in many countries on the 24 and 25 December.

The custom of gifting of children at Christmas has been propagated by Martin Luther as an alternative to the previous very popular gift custom on St. Nicholas, to focus the interest of the children to Christ instead of the veneration of saints.

The remains of Saint Nicholas are in Italy.

In 1087, the Italian city of Bari mounted an expedition to locate the tomb of the Saint.

The spirit of Christmas is the spirit of love and of generosity and of goodness.

It illuminates the picture window of the soul, and we look out upon the world’s busy life

and become more interested in people than in things.

~ Thomas S. Monson

Is Santa Claus real?

I don’t really know since I don’t live in a house with a chimney.

But there is one thing that we all cannot deny.

The generosity spread by a real man who is known as Saint Nicolas.

HAVE A WONDERFUL AND BLESSED HOLIDAY!

Till then,

Cheers & TTFN ~
