and then kept showering.
While I Iove to sleep at night with the sound and smell of rain, I do like my daytime to be nice enough to get out of the house and walk.
Here are some positive thoughts to end the month of May with, hopefully, these thoughts will bring the sunshine out to your rainy day!
"Forty is the old age of youth. Fifty is the youth of old age."
- Victor Hugo -
"When it comes to
a mind-lift beats
a face-lift any day."
- Marty Bucella -
"The soul never ages.
My soul dances
without my feet.
I am the music."
- Alev Oguz -
Here are a few really good thoughts from Kevyn Aucoin (American Artist born on February 14, 1962, died on May 07, 2002.)
"Today I choose life.
Every morning when I wake up
I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain...
To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices
- today I choose to feel life,
not to deny my humanity
but embrace it."
"Fear is the most debilitating emotion in the world, and
it can keep you from ever truly knowing yourself and others
- its adverse effects can no longer be overlooked or underestimated.
Fear breeds hatred, and hatred has the power to destroy everything in its path."
"My entire mission in life
is to help women
take over the world.
Not by force
(the route so many men
since the beginning of time),
with compassion, perseverance, and love."
"Life is too short
to spend hoping that the perfectly arched eyebrow or hottest new lip shade
will mask an ugly heart."
Remember, age is just a number. You have control on how your approach getting older. Positive people are happier people, happier people are healthier people, and healthier people tend to live longer.....choose carefully how you view getting older.
Accept who you are and love yourself. Acceptance doesn't mean you stop improving yourself in whatever way your choose. It only means that where ever you are in life, enjoy it and don't let others dictate your level of happiness. Beauty is still in the eye of the beholder. Everyone has beauty!
May marks the end of spring and the beginning of summer. Don't sit around the house looking at the walls or vegetating. Go for a walk or a ride; or just sit on the porch or in a park and enjoy the outdoors; get out those paints and brushes and create something; plant a few flowers...and take time to enjoy them. Do something!
Now get out there and live!
Make each day count!
the life you have been given...
live it fully all the way to the end!
How do you enjoy your summer days? Do you appreciate the life your have been given? Have you stopped allowing others to control how you feel about yourself? Remember, some people will love you for who you are, some will be envious of who you are, and some are so afraid of who you are they treat you badly. These are the people who will not grow old gracefully or positively, they don't know how. We should set the example for them.
