Out of Clutter, Find Simplicity #inspiration #motivation #WednesdayWisdom


clutter simplicity

 

Summer has arrived and while some of us are on vacation (16 days until we go on vacation), many of us are dealing with an overloaded workload. The kids are out of school and looking for stuff to do. Friends want to get together and all you want to do is go to the beach.

 

When my life gets cluttered, I seek the simple things. Soothing music, an absorbing book,  fresh flower bouquets my husband brings home, good food, a few cocktails and snuggling with Mr. N are just a few of my summertime pleasures.  While they may not seem exciting or thrilling, they bring me peace and happiness.

 

Life can get chaotic, especially during the Summer. Find joy in the little things and you’ll be at peace.

 

What do you do to escape the busyness of your life? Share in the comments below.

“Plant Love, Grow Peace.” — @ArianaGrande #inspiration #TuesdayThoughts


love and peace AG

 

Last night, after Ariana Grande performed in Manchester, a suicide bomber detonated himself just outside. At last count, 22 children died, over 50 injured and several still missing.

This terrorist scumbag murdered children and stripped innocence from all of us who love music. I’m not a fan of Ariana Grande but I love music. Both MR N and I have gone to our fair share of concerts. It’s a great time, no matter what kind of music it is. In one act, fear and chaos erupted at a concert.

When I first heard about it, I was shocked. It tore me apart with first grief then righteous anger. Ariana Grande is not to blame and neither are the concert go-ers. The blame is solely on the loser who built and detonated the bomb.

So, while I’m still seething with anger and my heart goes out to all those who died and were injured, I am inspired by something Ariana Grande once said.

“Plant love. Grow peace.”

Every human life is precious, no matter what race, religion, creed, sex, etc. I have a love for every life. I may not agree with their beliefs or values but I respect their right to exist.

Imagine if everyone felt the same way as me. Hatred wouldn’t exist and neither would war.

In this world of chaos, be the Light. Spread kindness. Plant love. Watch your love’s roots grow deep and peace will surely blossom.

#ThursdayThoughts: In Stillness, We Find Our Peace #inspiration #meditation #prayer


peace

 

Are you at peace?

Being still and at peace is something I struggle with daily. My brain is constantly firing thoughts, ideas and criticisms. It’s hard for me to shut it off and quite frankly, it’s exhausting. So, when I saw this quote, it gave me pause.

When we are still, peace comes to us.

I find peace through meditation/prayer. I concentrate on my breathing and words of gratitude flow from my mouth.

Why is stillness important?

No one is the Tasmanian Devil. We can’t keep whirling around nonstop without consequences. We get tired, exhausted even, and need time to refuel/rest/replenish ourselves. Stillness through meditation/prayer allows our mind/body/soul to be refilled.

Today, take time to be still and peace will find you. Now repeat after me,

“I am grateful for…”

Take My Hand… Let’s Give Peace a Chance #inspiration #Nice #Peace


dreamer

When I was little I was a dreamer. Every night I would dream what life would be like when I was an adult. I’d imagine myself in a variety of jobs and circumstances. The world was open to me and my dreams were endless.

As an adult, I see the world as it is but also what it could be. Inside me, there is still the little girl who dreams of a better world.

What are your dreams?

Have you stashed them away for the cold reality of this world?

In order to change the world, we have to start by dreaming what we want the world to become. 

Peace is a term that is thrown around a lot these days. There’s so much war and violence it’s hard to imagine peace, especially after what happened yesterday in Nice, France. John Lennon imagined a world of peace and we can too!

You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I hope someday you’ll join us and the world will live as one.

Take my hand and together we’ll dream of a peaceful world! Someday the world will live as one.

Princess of the Light: A Holy Wish for the World #Christmas #Peace #Inspiration


Mary from POTL

My name is Mary and I am the Princess of the Light.  I come to the world to cast out the darkness and to fill the world with Light.  I wish for every person, no matter what they believe, to be filled with love, Light and hope.

May this very holy time of the year fill your hearts with hope and wonder!  Your name is on the lips of angels and you are more cherished in Heaven than all the riches in the world!

 

Please listen to this beautiful song, “I Heard the Bells On Christmas Day”, and be inspired:

 

(Lyrics below)

 

1. I heard the bells on Christmas day

Their old familiar carols play,

And wild and sweet the words repeat

Of peace on earth, good will to men.

 

2. I thought how, as the day had come,

The belfries of all Christendom

Had rolled along the unbroken song

Of peace on earth, good will to men.

 

3. And in despair I bowed my head

‘There is no peace on earth,’ I said,

‘For hate is strong and mocks the song

Of peace on earth, good will to men.’

 

4. Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:

‘God is not dead, nor doth He sleep;

The wrong shall fail, the right prevail

With peace on earth, good will to men.’

 

5. Till ringing, singing on its way

The world revolved from night to day,

A voice, a chime, a chant sublime

Of peace on earth, good will to men.

 

Peace on Earth… let us all shine our Light so peace can reign on Earth!

Discover the Power Within #inspiration #strength #peace


strength

Where does your strength comes from?

Mine comes from within. My strength comes from my spiritual path and from my soul. I have a positive attitude and believe in the good of the world. Everyone, no matter what their race, sex or creed, is equal and valued.

You have a power within you and I call it your Light. It’s what makes you you and when you are struggling with an obstacle, its power gives you the strength to overcome anything. Embrace your Light and don’t worry about what other people think.

Be yourself and let your Light shine.

For when you are who you were meant to be, you will be stronger than you ever imagined!

Let Contentment Fill Your Soul #inspiration #spiritual #contentment

Are you content?

In this day and age, it goes against our nature to be content with what we have and who we are. We have to have the latest fashion, houses, cars, careers… the list goes on and on.

I just read the latest trend in houses: two kitchens. One is for show and the other one is for use. I shake my head because I bet the homeowners do not have contentment.

A contented heart is a calm sea in the midst of all storms.

I am content because I have everything I could possibly want:

A roof over my head

Food to eat

A man I love

A career I’m proud of

Friends and family I love

If something happened and I lost it all (home, food, career, friends, family), I would be content living under a bridge with MR N. I’m a simple woman and my soul is filled contentment.

How about you?

When life throws you a curveball, does your soul become your lifeboat and you float along until the storm passes? Or do you drown in the storm?

Fill your soul with contentment and surround yourself with what really matters. Everything else is just fluff anyway.

Gratitude A to Z: P is for Peaceful Feelings #peace #gratitude


Peace

 

Peace. Just hearing the word brings a certain calm to my soul.

Are you at peace?

I’m so inspired by this quote by Wayne Dyer!!!

Life is never how we think it should be. It can drive you crazy. But if you flip your perspective and re-train your mind to be at peace with whatever comes, you will be happier.

MR N and I are in the midst of a very busy time for us. The holiday season is here and we have a lot on our plates. Our schedule is jammed with activities and when something tricky happens we say…

It’s FUN!

It’s not really but when we say it out loud, our mind turns on the fun filter and we get through it. 🙂

Today I am thankful for peaceful feelings. Looking out the window at the trees and the trains floods me with peace.

What brings you peace? I’d love to hear so comment below. 🙂

Gratitude A to Z: N is for Nature #gratitude #inspirationalthought #nature


Young woman walking through forest

I’m a nature girl and I find such peace on my morning walk! There is something so serene about walking in nature.

This graphic shows you how easy it is to de-stress and infuse happiness in your mind, body and soul! Turn off your phone and walk among the trees, birds and all that Mother Nature has to offer.

Today I am so thankful for Nature!

Go out and bond with Mother Nature! 🙂

Live in Harmony With Yourself


Harmony

Are you at peace with yourself?

I woke up this morning feeling a part of the world and at peace. The past few weeks I have been feeling like the I was pushing against the universe. But this morning, my body, mind and soul are at peace. I’m floating down the river of life with the tide, not against it.

Ever feel like that?

I saw this quote and it suddenly dawned on me. I’m in harmony with myself and also with the universe. I am on the right path, fulfilling what I am called to do.

Are you in harmony with yourself?

If not, do whatever it takes to attain that harmony. Do some soul searching and discover your inner peace.

Spread the Light!
