Welcome to the Joyful Life Guide A, B, C Monday newsletter.
Here are A. 3 Joyful ideas from me, B. 2 Joyful thoughts from others and C. Something to consider this week.
A. Joyful ideas from me
“You will never be fully in possession of anything more valuable or remarkable than yourself so damn well treat yourself with the utmost respect.”
“The creative process is a process of birth requiring nurture, time, celebration and support.”
“Sustainable happiness in our endeavours can be found at the cross roads of capacity and challenge.”
B. It was once said…
Essayist, lecturer, philosopher, abolitionist, and poet Ralph Waldo Emerson on success:
“To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived — that is to have succeeded.”
Buddhist monk, peace activist, author, poet, teacher Thích Nhất Hạnh on the importance of breath:
“Breath is the bridge which connects life to consciousness, which unites your body to your thoughts. Whenever your mind becomes scattered, use your breath as the means to take hold of your mind again.”
C. Something to consider this week:
“Knowing what we don’t want and what does not serve us is as important as knowing what we do want and what nurtures us.
What can you let go of right now that will have the single biggest impact on your well-being?
Start with that and continue to let go.”
Until next Monday,
