Oh my dear father,
I like him, he is very handsome.
I want to go to Porta Rossa
to buy the ring!
Yes, yes, I want to go there!
And if my love were in vain,
I would go to Ponte Vecchio
and throw myself in the Arno!
I am pining and I am tormented,
Oh God! I would want to die!
Daddy, have mercy, have mercy!
Daddy, have mercy, have mercy!
It is interesting how people come … and people go … even I have been there and am now here. HA. Isn’t that just the way.
Habits … believing that other opinions of us are greater than the thoughts we hold for, and about, ourselves is a trained pattern of behavior. It is hard to transform it into something freer, more healthy.
It is easy to replay negative remarks over and over in the mind, or keep seeing that sneer and the role of the eyes as someone judged harshly in our memory bank. There are situations where some feel it is necessary to embrace those judgements and alter ourselves according to what others feel is acceptable. No … this does not work.
We cannot please all of the people, it is hard enough to please ourselves. However, in putting the effort into being the best version of ourselves (truly), those who think the same will show up. It only takes one or two, more is not necessarily better.
Release. Learning how not to get too comfortable, too attached to things, situations, circumstances, is tough. Sometimes release is not what we choose, most often it may not be what we choose, yet it happens. Sooner or later we begin to realize that when we hold too tightly to something, we only trap ourselves and set ourselves up for pain and drama when it changes, and morphs into some new situation.
Recognizing and understanding the flow … it too is a learned thing. Or is it?
My little box of love received all the way from Australia carried with it “A Little Book Of Happiness”. I go to it now, for today has been a little rough, in that there is a sadness attempting to swallow my mind.
Give happiness and joy to many people. There is nothing better or greater than that.
~ Ludwig Van Beethoven
We choose our joys and our sorrows long before we experience them.
~ Khalil Gibran
Happiness, how big and precious it is.
~ Maxim Gorky
Throw out from yourself an adhesive web of love, and catch in it all that comes.
~ Leo Nikolaevich Tolstoy
Happiness held is the seed; happiness shared is the flower. When you come upon a path that brings benefit and happiness to all, follow this course as the moon journeys through the stars.
May each and every warm thought bring a wish for all the best in life, and all your favorite things … Go as far as your dreams can take you … Precisely the least, the softest, the lightest, a lizards rustling, a breath, a flash, a moment – a little makes the way of the best happiness.
~ Friedrich Nietzsche
The infinite has written its name on the heavens in shining stars, and on earth in tender flowers.
~ Jean Paul Richter
I will end on that note as far as listing some of the quotes found in “The Little Book Of Happiness”, for I find this to be a very important one to ponder.
Do you feel nature in your inner most self when you are alone among the trees and bushes, or sitting next to a stream, or river … or perhaps when you are watching the waves of the ocean roll in, one after the other? If so, then I am indeed very happy, for this means perhaps there is hope for life after all.
I do hope for all mankind an ability to understand that what happens, or has happened TO them does not define them. If this blessing could wash over us all, then perhaps we would stop hurting each other so, stop hurting the animals, and begin to take part in the healing of the planet and all of life.
