LOVE your life!

It's been a long time since I posted here but I feel inspired to return to the world of blogging!  A week or two ago I was going through a bit of a patch of the blahs, a little bit down in the dumps, uninspired, discontent.  When I'm feeling this way the people I turn to are my Mom and my sister. They are the dear ones who know and love me the best and they never fail to pull me out of the doldrums, make me wake up and smell the sweetness of the roses in the garden my life!

My wise and loving mother wrote these words to me in an email and they have become my mantra:

“The clue is LOVE in capitals in every aspect of your life.
First to LOVE yourself and every part of you and all your beauty and talents, revel in them, your love of your family and of yoga and of cooking and of walking and and and….

Then LOVE every person that crosses your path and be glad of each and every encounter.
Life is very good.”

They were just the words I needed to read. To make me wake up and remember that Love and Happiness are daily choices that we make - not something that we randomly stumble upon but something we consciously choose.  And that the words we speak and the thoughts we think really do have a direct impact on the lives we live.  Happiness is LOVING what is right in front of you, right here, right now!
