Look Again In Your Heart Day 2 #NHBPM

Today is Day 2 of Wego’s National Health Blog Post Month.  There are two prompts to choose from each day.  One was to write about the weirdest thing about your health.  Right now everything seems weird.  After yesterday’s long heartfelt and emotionally exhausting post, I decided to go with the second prompt.  Find a quote and use it as inspiration.

The quote above, from Gibran, “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.” is exactly what I am going through these days.  I am sadly missing the people in my life who I loved and I am sad that I have similar troubles with my health that they had.  I am looking again at my sadness and hoping for a silver lining.  There are some hopeful things that I can gain from this experience.

One.  I loved them.  They loved me.  Everyone should be so lucky to have experienced that kind of love.

Two.  I have their experiences to learn from. I will honor them and try not to make the mistakes they may have made.

Three.  I have knowledge, strength, and support that will help me through this.

That’s inspiring!

I urge you to look again in your heart.  What makes you sad?  Could it be that you are longing for the thing that once made you happy.  Perhaps knowing that you were once happy is not enough.  Make yourself happy again.  At least now you know what you are missing.

Remembering Ray Bradbury

“Libraries are absolutely at the center of my life.  Since I couldn’t afford to go to college, I attended the library three or four days a week from the age of eighteen on, and graduated from the library when I was twenty-eight.” – Ray Bradbury

 

 

I know that Mr. Bradbury was very involved at the library where my parents volunteered and they were so honored to have met him on numerous occasions. I loved reading his books when I was young and we have copies of them around our home now. Many of them have been signed personally by the author. Farenheit 451 is still required reading in school.  I know my kids will have the chance to read other titles by Bradbury as e-books, even though they were never meant to be read that way. I do not think I will ever re-read them, but there is a chance that I might enjoy listening to an audio version on our next car trip. Wouldn’t Mr. Bradbury get a kick out of that? I understand that he loved the reader’s theater.

These are the Ray Bradbury books that we have signed in our home library. I found the program to one of the events that my parents attended inside one of them.

This is a beautiful homage to Ray Bradbury that made me sad and joyful at the same time. . .

Don’t Dream It – Be It

The Road to Success Day 37.

CAWriterGirl says:

“I have the power to co-create anything I can imagine. I can create more than that, but as a physical being I often doubt myself and abilities and therefore, inadvertently limit my possibilities.

When I focus on my light and radiating my joy out to others, I can’t help but attract those things I need and desire into my life. They always come at exactly the right time and in exactly the right way to appease me. As I become more aware of my power to create in my everyday life, I can use it in ways to benefit not only myself but others. I succeed by helping others to succeed.”

My Heart Song

“. . . I am like a brook that makes no effort to overcome obstacles on its way.

All the obstacles can do is hold me up for a while, as a brook is held up;

but during that time it grows broader and deeper

and after awhile it overflows the obstruction and flows along again.

That is how I am going to work.”

-Fr. William Joseph Chaminade

Success means doing the best we can with what we have.
Success is the doing,
not the getting – –
the trying,
not the triumph.
Success is a personal standard – –
reaching for the highest that is in us – –
becoming all that we can be.
If we do our best,
we are a success.
Success is the maximum utilization of the ability that you have.
      – Zig Ziglar
We are all winners!
Be who you are
and say what you feel
because those who mind
don’t matter
and those that matter
don’t mind.
    – Dr. Seuss

May you run and not be weary.

May your heart be filled with song.

And may the love of God continue

to give you hope and keep you strong.

 May you run and not be weary.

May your life be filled with joy!

And may the road you travel always lead you home.

 – Murakami

The Road Home

A STRONG PERSON

A strong person knows how to keep their life in order.

Even with tears in their eyes, they still manage to say “I’m ok” with a smile.

God is good.

Change is coming.

God saw your sadness and said hard times are over.

After my sister's funeral, with tears still burning in my eyes.

 

 “Let us rise up and be thankful,

for if we didn’t learn a lot today,

at least we learned a little,

and if we didn’t learn a little,

at least we didn’t get sick,

and if we got sick,

at least we didn’t die;

so, let us all be thankful.”

 ~Buddha

Um, whatchya talkin' about Willis?"

There are only two ways to live your life.

One is as though nothing is a miracle.

The other is as though everything is a miracle.

-Albert Einstein

“I Wish For You…”

Comfort on difficult days,

Smiles when sadness intrudes,

Rainbows to follow the clouds,

Laughter to kiss your lips,

Sunsets to warm your heart,

Gentle hugs when spirits sag,

Friendships to brighten your being,

Beauty for your eyes to see,

Confidence for when you doubt,

Faith so that you can believe,

Courage to know yourself,

Patience to accept the truth,

And love to complete your life.
