Happy Wise

A L O H A !

" The longer we dwell 
on our misfortunes
 the greater their power
 to harm us. " 
                                 Voltaire










"  For every minute 
you are angry 
you lose sixty seconds
 of happiness. "
                            Ralph Waldo Emerson











"Be happy.
 It's one way 
of being wise." 
                        Colette 








" Every word, facial expression, 
gesture, or action
 on the part of a parent 
gives the child some message 
about self-worth. 
It is sad that so many 
parents don't realize 
what messages they are sending. "
Virginia Satir

Thank YOU

After my posting today, I must tale Voltaire's words to mind. Cleansing is good.

Beloved ship, Kilauea
Sea-roving steed that roams this ocean
Hauling back and forth, then the voyage home

Now Kilauea's prow heads into the wind
Smoke breaks from stack, ripples over the sea,
Paddle-wheel slowly revolves and
Passes Kala`au Point

Moloka`i up ahead
Lahaina yonder, awaiting freight
The Kilauea unloads cargo
At Pala`au
Heave-ho and shove down below

Like a flock of seabirds upon a waste of sand
A hungry horde races along this shore
Were it not for
Chief Kamehameha
The sheep would have no supplies or life
The shepherd, wise in matters of life
Kama`ipu`upa`a, the life-bringing kahuna

Now let his famished flock feed on
Olive leaves given with a King's love
This is the end of my song
In praise of Chief Kamehameha

How true it is. And dwelling on misfortunes takes sooooo much more energy than revelling in joy.

Great quotes! I like the Voltaire quote. We don't need to dwell on the bad things.
