Happy Illumination

Ever had one of those days where you just wanted to crawl in bed, and block the world out?  Or felt like you needed a big dose of love and spoiling?  Those days where you seem to dwell on anything and everything.  Well I have had my share of those type days recently. 

And then my sister told me this about my niece "she went to school, walked up to her teachers, and informed them she was happy"  Now you have to know my niece because at the tender age of 2 1/2 she is an old soul, she is truly remarkable for her age.

Oh the amazing stories I could share, but for now let me just say this....the happiness she exudes is incredible, not to mention extremely contagious. Like the sun she brightens the world because she chooses to be happy, she creates fun, and finds joy in the simplest of things.

It is truly amazing how one soul can affect another.  Oh I'm sure there are those unpleasant souls that are incredibly hard to change but still I believe it is possible.  So.....

Today I simply wish and pray for a world that is full of more happiness, love, kindness, selflessness, genuine goodness, honesty, compassion, understanding, loyalty, patience, peace, fun and full of people who want to be the best souls they can possibly be!

"As the sun lights up the moon, love has the power to illuminate our hearts"

"Treat people as if they were what they ought to be and you will help them become what they are capable of becoming."

"The greatest discovery is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitudes of mind."

"It's hard to get people to overcome the thought that they have to take care of themselves first. It's hard to get players to give in to the group and become selfless as opposed to selfish."

"How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because some days in your life you  will have been all of these."

"Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around."

"With faith, discipline and selfless devotion to duty, there is nothing worthwhile that you cannot achieve."

"Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is the past, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it."
