Think well!

Here is a beautiful story that is worth a read and share.

A young woman was sitting at her dining table, worried about taxes to be paid, house-work to be done and to top it all, her family was coming over for Thanksgiving the next day. She was not feeling very thankful at that time. As she turned her gaze sideways, she noticed her young daughter scribbling furiously into her notebook. “My teacher asked us to write a paragraph on “Negative Thanksgiving” for homework today.” said the daughter, “She asked us to write down things that we are thankful for, things that make us feel not so good in the beginning, but turn out to be good after all.”

With curiosity, the mother peeked into the book. This is what the daughter had written:
“I’m thankful for Final Exams, because that means school is almost over. I’m thankful for bad-tasting medicine, because it helps me feel better. I’m thankful for waking up to alarm clocks, because it means I’m still alive.” It then dawned on the mother, that she had a lot of things to be thankful for! She thought again… She had to pay taxes but that meant she was fortunate to be employed. She had house-work to do but that meant she had her own home to live in. She had to cook for her family for Thanksgiving but that meant she had a family with whom she could celebrate.

Moral:We generally complain about the negative things in life but we fail to look at the positive side of it. What is the positive in your negatives?
Look at the better part of life this day and make it a great day”

Gratitude: From one writer to another.

Gratifying to know…

The gratification that comes from and only through all you involved readers.

So much gratitude to you all for your support and engagement and likes.

Through encouraging comments and fabulous link shares.

So much learning in these sharings.

So grateful for the opportunity to share

Looking forward to reading your works

In mutual admiration and respect

From one writer to another.

For readers and writers are connected

In a dance of symbiosis

There is no one without the other.

To teach is to engage

Life’s lessons for one and all!

To learn anything profound

That gets you changing the self

That transforms thoughts

To transcend the mundane

In contemplation and reflection.

To response and action

Practice is the best teaching.

To teach is to engage whatever the age.

Teaching the young

A child is reflexive and responsive

And absorbs in the new like a sponge.

To teach the young is no easy task

It can be a task that is daunting

And yet very rewarding at the same time.

To truly change the world for the better

We need to teach them, love for life and living.

We need to speak with compassion for them to follow suit

We need to share and express ourselves

We need to treat one other with kindness.

We need to be caring and considerate consistently.

We need to share more of ourselves

We need to honour our commitments.

We need to reach out and help another.

We need to encourage and appreciate

For these are what gets imprinted in their hearts

For acts of goodwill leave a lasting impression.

To dance ‘the love of my life’....

‘To dance is to converse with your soul in oneness’

Savvy

Well I have just sat down to write supercharged after dancing an improvised version of Rumba to one of my favourite songs ‘Every day I love you by Boyzone. Yes I love to dance and I willing and wholeheartedly share my love and passion for it with the world.

Well who ever told you about dancing by numbers has perhaps never learned to dance from the heart!😉 Beyond the number game … yes we may begin with counting steps though I find a lot of people like me who prefered to learn with rhythms of quicks and slows. I prefer to associate dancing with the heart beats and the breath of life itself . I also find that when taught this way the dance gets closely connected with the authenticity of you and your movements as you are.

After all dancing is being you!

The art of dance can introduce you to yourself and beckons you to know your limitless potential.
