WELCOME 2019 – we’ve been waiting for you.

It is always important to know when something has reached its end. Closing circles, shutting doors, finishing chapters, it doesn’t matter what we call it; what matters is to leave in the past those moments in life that are over. ― Paulo Coelho, The Zahir

   YAPPY NEW YEAR!

For my Girlfriends:

“Time passes. Life happens.
Distance separates. Children grow up.
Love waxes and wanes.
Men don’t do what they’re supposed to do.
Hearts break. Parents die.
Colleagues forget favors. Careers end.

BUT – Sisters are there, no matter how much time and how
many miles are between you.
A girlfriend is never farther away than needing her.
When you have to walk that lonesome valley and you have to walk it by yourself,
the women in your life will be on the valley’s rim, cheering you on,
praying for you, pulling for you, intervening on your behalf,
and waiting with open arms at the valley’s end.
Sometimes, they will even break the rules and walk beside you,
or come in and carry you out.
Girlfriends, daughters, granddaughters, daughters-in-law, sisters,
sisters-in-law, mothers, grandmothers,
aunties, nieces, cousins and Extended family all bless our life.
When we began this adventure called womanhood,
we had no idea of the incredible joys or sorrows that lay ahead,
nor did we know how much we Would need each other.
Every day, we need each other still.”

 No one said that Comedy and Spirituality cannot co-exist (which is the abbreviated version of comedy and existentialism.  So I thought you might like to see a different side of this well-known, super talented comedian.  Of course for the full speech you’ll have to visit the link below.

“Your job is letting the universe know what you want and working toward it

While letting go of how it comes to pass

Open the door in your head and when the door opens in real life

Just walk through it

Don’t worry if you miss your cue

Cause there’s always doors opening

They keep opening”

Good work Jim!jimcarrey3

This was taken from a video clip (link below) when Jim Carrey gave the commencement address to Maharishi University of Management’s class of 2014. The University Board of Trustees also presented Mr. Carrey with the honorary degree of Doctor of Fine Arts Honoris Causa, in recognition of his significant lifetime achievements as a world-renowned comedian and actor, artist, author and philanthropist.  Enjoy!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V80-gPkpH6M&list=PLs4GvULvBU47e4kRTRsAMUuGOCcGnrg4b&index=2

Inspirational quotes on Life and LIVING

because they’re really two different things………….

Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind. – Dr. Seusslife

The joy of life consists in the exercise of one’s energies, continual growth, constant change, the enjoyment of every new experience. To stop means simply to die. The eternal mistake of mankind is to set up an attainable ideal. – Aleister Crowley

A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing. – George Bernard Shaw

In the end, it’s not going to matter how many breaths you took, but how many moments took your breath away. – – shing xiong

It’s true that we don’t know what we’ve got until we lose it, but it’s also true that we don’t know what we’ve been missing until it arrives.

It takes only a minute to get a crush on someone, an hour to like someone, and a day to love someone-but it takes a lifetime to forget someone.

Dream what you want to dream, go where you want to go, be what you want to be.  Because you have only one life and one chance to do all the things you want to do.

The happiest of people don’t necessarily have the best of everything, they just make the most of everything that comes along their way.

Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss, ends with a tear. When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling. Live your life so that when you die, you’re the one smiling and everyone around you is crying.

 

 

AWay with Words – quotes that get under our skin

quotes1Nobody grows old merely by living a number of years.  We grow old by deserting our ideals.  Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul. Samuel Ullman

Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick. Gwyneth Paltrow.

“People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.”
Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
When you’re a beautiful person on the inside, nothing in the world can change that about you. Jealousy is the result of one’s lack of self-confidence, self-worth, and self-acceptance. The Lesson: If you can’t accept yourself, then certainly no one else will.”
― Sasha Azevedo
The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole,but true beauty in a Woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she knows.quote2
― Audrey Hepburn
“Outer beauty attracts, but inner beauty captivates.”
– Kate Angell, Squeeze Play

“There are those who say that spiritual enlightenment is achieved through the denial of oneself; you must deny yourself many things, go and live on a mountaintop, never mingle with other people, talk to the birds..but I say to you, why should you dismantle your home? Where is the meaning in removing the bricks from your walls one by one? What is the purpose in uprooting your floors? Is there any significance in only allowing yourself a tin roof and a muddy bed? Why deny your house its structure? A truly enlightened soul is strong enough, is bright enough to live and shine through, even in a beautiful house! There is no need to ransack the house in order to see an inner beauty etched against a distraught surrounding. A bright and beautiful soul can shine forth even from inside an equally beautiful surrounding.”  – C JoyBell C.
