In December during the time of Madiba’s passing, I came out of the movies to find a most interesting email. The email was from a lovely lady who contacted me via the blog posts I had written for my dear friend Sue Levy. The email was praise for my writing especially the post Forgetting Fear.I was asked if I would be interested in a book by Cherie Roe Dirkson called Carpe Diem or Bust.
My response was immediately “yes” and this started a beautiful friendship between R and myself which has blossomed over emails. I now consider R my big sister as I don’t have one. So today I finally got around to paging through this book I was gifted.
I paged through the book today and instantly I was drawn to this :
The post is called “Stocking your cupboard with Happiness”.
1)Loved ones – think of all the people in your life that make living a joy.Picture their happy smiley faces and feel the effect of their love in your heart centre.
2)Play music – listen to your favourite songs that make you happy.
3)Precious memories – bring out old scrapbooks/albums. Remind yourself of how many moments you have had in your life that were full and extraordinary.
4)Encounter animals – Cats balance your aura by their purring. Pets lift our spirits.
5)Nature – go be in Nature, its calming, grounding and balancing and its FREE.
6)Count your blessings – all our basic needs of food, shelter, clothing and a healthy body are things we take for granted but we should count these as blessings.
7) Laugh your head off – watch a comedy as no one likes a sour puss so make sure your face is creased with laughter lines.
After reading these 7 pearls of Wisdom I am defo going to be stocking my cupboard this week with happiness. All of the above are so easy to do.
Thank you my sister R for gifting me this book and sharing this recipe for happiness. I hope you follow my example.
