All Great Changes Are Preceded By…

Chaos

“All great changes are preceded by chaos.”

~ Deepak Chopra

There’s been so much chaos in our world lately.  Crime, hate, suffering, and terrorism all seem to consume the news, social media and conversations among ourselves.  Planet Earth has become bombarded with chaos seemingly everywhere we turn.  For me, I am saddened to my core by the chaos of our world as I am sure you are as well.  I am frightened by the violence, death and destruction which has unfortunately become increasingly more erratically frequent, more prevalent and somehow more unbelievably evil.

So, what’s the answer?

I pray Deepak is right with the quote above as it gave me a little peace in my heart today.  Perhaps this chaotic time will bring change for the better for our world.  Maybe we can come together to bring about peace in our lands for humanity and for our world.  Imagine if each of us would shine our heartlights everyday in our own corners of the world.  One day we may even be able to eradicate the darkness that seeks to overcome humanity.

One heartlight at a time…

John Lennon’s voice echos in my mind…take a moment, generate peace in our world and hope for a brighter future along with me today.  You can do it.  Imagine…Shine your heartlights dear friends.  May peace be with you all!  You are loved. ♥

Shine On!

What Counts

WhatCounts“Count your age by friends, not years.

Count your life by smiles, not tears.”

~ John Lennon

I love my birthday week ~ the birthday eve, the birthday itself and then following days which I find blissful.  I have always loved my birthday and I can only say that it’s become more precious to me as the years pass.  Probably because I continue to be so grateful that I am still here after all I’ve endured.  I find the dawn most pleasant for the new day ~ the optimism which embraces me as I rise to greet the morning.  I love dusk as well, for as I prepare to lay my head on the pillow, I hold most sacred that I have tried to be a good person (and if I haven’t, then I ask forgiveness).

I have been blessed with an abundance of birthday greetings which nestle into my heart to hold for the coming year.  Knowing that I have had so many sweet people take a moment out of their busy lives to say hello and wish me well has swollen my heart and soul with so much love!  My heartfelt thanks to all of you! ♥

I love the above quote which I got via email from Contagious Optimism today.  How perfect for me to share today!  I begin my mornings by reading a few positive emails from different places and this is one of my favorites!  You can sign up to receive a quick inspirational quote every morning from them.  Make sure you take a moment to check them out!  Just a little tidbit of positivity for you!

May you find peace within today and always.  May your lives be filled with love and joy.  May you feel blessed, for you truly are.  Thanks for connecting with me.  You are simply the best!

Shine On!

Plant Love!

We’ve got this gift of love,
but love is like a precious plant.
You can’t just accept it and
leave it in the cupboard
or just think it’s going to get on by itself.
You’ve got to keep watering it.
You’ve got to really look after it and nurture it.

–John Lennon

I found this quote on one of my favorite blogs ~ please visit Rethinking Life!   I hope that today you continue to grow the love within yourself and radiate it!

Love yourself.  Love others.  Love life.

Shine On!
