“Live your truth. Express your love. Share your enthusiasm. Take action towards your dreams. Walk your talk. Dance and sing to your music. Embrace your blessings. Make today worth remembering.”

~ Dr Steve Maraboli

 

I am going to be happy today!

Oh, what a beautiful day it is, by His grace.

I love the sun as it shines. It seems to grin at me through the leafy branches.

The clouds pass by. With their sailing swirls of blues and whites, they gently acknowledge my presence.

I am going to be happy today!

Oh, what a beautiful day it is, by His grace.

The tingling, kindly breeze softly caresses my cheek. Refreshed, I feel joyful and immensely grateful to be alive.

So many sparrows in flight, soaring and swooping. They chirp excitedly, and shower at the bird fountain, before taking a peck at the breadcrumbs and seeds scattered nearby.

I am going to be happy today!

Oh, what a beautiful day it is, by His grace.

A razzmatazz of colours appears in the front. Such a beautiful array of flowers – dahlias, roses, hollyhocks, pansies, zinnias, chrysanthemums, marigolds, phlox, gladioli, bougainvilleas and a whole lot more.

The lush green grass feels cool, bejewelled by the morning dew, each blade shimmering and sparkling by the radiant sunshine.

I am going to be happy today!

Oh, what a beautiful day it is, by His grace.

The splendour of three butterflies fluttering around, begs my attention. Brilliant yellows, crimson reds, turquoise blues and dazzling oranges waltz, then salsa, ending their dance sequence with the rhumba. I’m hypnotised.

How delightful is my garden! Indeed, my cup runneth over, my heart swells with gratefulness. Gratitude waters my soul; verdant with an abundance of blessings.

I am going to be happy today!

I am thankful for all the blessings – past, present and future.

Oh, what a beautiful day it is, by His grace.

Ah, such a positive, splendid life I have… I love it. I am going to live it.

I have embraced my blessings. Have you?

Make today worth remembering.

Cheers!

I’d like to be..

The rainbow in your cloud

The peace in your thoughts

The blossoms on your tree

The buds on your rose bushes

The whispers on your pillow

The feathers in your duvet

The diamonds in your tiara

The gold among your silver

The sheen of your shoes

The starch in your shirt

The fragrance of your perfume

The smile on your face

The reason for your happiness

The giggle in your laughter

The cause for your success

The positivity in your mind

The desire for your goodness

The example for your compassion

Lastly,

But not the least

I’d like to be…

The hope for all your tomorrows.

Therefore, live on, my precious children,

Be happy, healthy and content,

Fear not, stand tall, walk on,

For this, the legacy, I leave behind

Is yours, alone, to keep;

And in your prayers,

I’d like to be..

Always.

And,

Forever.

Happiness is a bowl of fresh berries

Oh, gosh! My room’s a mess
I am in a total distress.

The cat’s done another ‘oopsie’
Do it again, feline, and you’ll get a ‘whoopsie’.

Dog, the obedient, doesn’t dare,
Have already given him an icy stare.

Laptop, again, conked out
For that I give a nasty shout.

Telly’s on the blink
Uff, I just cannot think.

Window shutters are rattling
The latches are battling.

I surrender, and flop on to my bed
Staring at the ceiling, I rest my head.

I wonder, and ponder, and, thrice, wonder
I think, and think, and simply wonder.

The walls begin to close in, I feel suffocated
What? Is the ceiling collapsing, am I intoxicated?

Perhaps pixies, gremlins and the mischievous fairy
Have caused all this havoc ? Help! They’re out to get me?

Ye gods, I don’t trust them nor their pixie dust
With that magic, they can do a lot…they got guts.

So, out the room, I pronto jump, in total distress
Down the stairs, I whizz, gosh, am I in a mess!

Breathe, breathe, my guru yoga always instructed
Beneath the tree I now sit, feeling a wee bit protected.

When stress spills over and the worries don’t abate
It’s because the system needs a break, so it’s time to meditate.

Be happy, don’t worry! Let not tensions nest in your head
Forget the past, trust the future, and in the present, walk on ahead.

Indeed, breathe in, breathe out…inhale, exhale – repeat
And if like me, you find a berry on the bush nearby – eat!

Happy strawberries, blueberries, cherries and blackberries
Pick and pluck what you love. My happy heart’s in raspberries!

may you glow with radiance along the way.

like precious jewels of good fortune.
