PRICELESS ADVICE by Pema Chödrön

"The next time you lose heart and you can’t bear to experience what you’re feeling, you might recall this instruction: change the way you see it and lean in. Instead of blaming our discomfort on outer circumstances or on our own weakness, we can choose to stay present and awake to our experience, not rejecting it, not grasping it, not buying the stories that we relentlessly tell ourselves.

PRICELESS ADVICE by Pema Chödrön

"The next time you lose heart and you can’t bear to experience what you’re feeling, you might recall this instruction: change the way you see it and lean in. Instead of blaming our discomfort on outer circumstances or on our own weakness, we can choose to stay present and awake to our experience, not rejecting it, not grasping it, not buying the stories that we relentlessly tell ourselves. This is priceless advice that addresses the true cause of suffering—yours, mine, and that of all living beings."

The ancient words "Baruch Bashan" {bay-roosh bay-shan}
mean... "The Blessings Already Are."

emoticon emoticon emoticon ~~I HOPE~~ emoticon emoticon emoticon

I hope that one day you buy every pretty dress you´ve ever wanted.
I hope you wear them and dance barefoot in summer and laugh.
I hope you smile at all the little things, like flowers, the wind blowing in your face. raindrops,
the smell of fresh cut grass and the laughter of children.
I hope you get that tattoo you´ve always wanted. I hope you learn to speak French Fluently.
I hope you go to Paris and NYC and get lost, and you will be found.
I hope you never stop singing, even when people tell you that you can´t – in fact,
especially then, that´s when I hope you´ll sing the loudest.
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
I hope you buy a bracelet everywhere you go,
or something you´ll always remember that place, until your whole arm is filled with them.
I hope you Love God with all your heart. I hope you stop beating yourself up
about everything that´s out of your control.
I hope you have the guts to speak up when something is important to you.
I hope you step out of your comfort zone.
I hope you fall insanely in love with someone unexpected.
I hope you forget about your scars – inside and out –
and in the middle of all this strange and beautiful world you learn to be happy.

emoticon emoticon I hope you have a Sensational Sunday! emoticon emoticon

When you feel dog tired at night, it may be because you've growled all day long.

“Once in a while, amidst all your bad days, you’ll have a good day. A great day even.
Make sure you remember those days. Keep them safely in your pockets,
maybe even in a jar on your desk because you need to know that there are and will be
better days. You need to remember how on those days you felt warm inside,
like you’ve just drunk a hot cup of tea; like a small fire was ignited inside of you.
Hold on to that warmth. And never let it go.”

emoticon emoticon Have a very, very warm Friday, hold on to it & enjoy it! emoticon emoticon

“To get up when you are down, to fight more intensely when you are struggling;
to put in the extra effort when you are in sheer pain,
to comeback when nobody expects you to,
and to stand tall when everyone is pulling you down are what make a champion”

emoticon emoticon ""Live & Laugh"" emoticon emoticon
Laugh your heart out,
Dance in the rain.
Cherish the moment
Ignore the pain.
Live, laugh, love,
Forgive & forget
Life's too short to be
Living with regrets.

Thought I'd stop by with a smile emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
And brighten up your Wednesday for awhile. emoticon emoticon emoticon
~~~HAPPY WEDNESDAY~~~
