Happiness Held

A L O H A From Honolulu!

So imagine
that the lovely moon
is playing just for you-
everything makes music
if you really want it to.
Giles Andreae

A red rose is not selfish
because it wants to
be a red rose.
It would be horribly selfish if
it wanted all the other flowers
in the garden to be
both red and roses.
Oscar Wilde

Happiness held
is the seed;
Happiness shared
is the flower.
John Harrigan

The face is more honest
than the mouth will ever be.
Daphne Orebaugh

A face is like the
outside of a house, and
most faces, like most houses,
give us an idea of what we
can expect to find inside.
 Loretta Young

Love You,

There are things

At every moment, we always
have a choice, even if it feels

a more positive thought. Tina Turner

Rules For Seeking

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Don’t seek to be happy;
let everyone else chase
after that rainbow.
Seek to be kind, and
you’ll find the rainbow
follows you. Richelle E. Goodrich  

The first sign of
intelligence is curiosity.
The second is staying calm.
The third is helping others. Maxime Lagacé

shapes in nature and
in the works of art,
look for an intentional error
as a sign of the golden key
and sincerity found
in true mastery. Dejan Stojanovic

It has always been easy
to hate and destroy.
To build and to cherish
is much more difficult
    Queen Elizabeth II

of noble souls.

You are where you need to be.

Let Some Slip By

A L O H A From Honolulu!

You have been warned against
letting the golden hours slip by.
Yes, but some of them are golden
only because we let them slip by.

If we live and we give
we find.

If We Opened to Enjoyment

A L O H A From Honolulu!

If we opened our minds
to enjoyment, we might find
tranquil pleasures spread
about us on every side.
We might live with the angels
that visit us on every sunbeam,
and sit with the fairies
who wait on every flower.
Samuel Smiles

No borders,
just horizons – only freedom.

Your mind is a ship; it can sail
across the universe as long as
you don't allow negative
thoughts to sink it.

The way you dress is
how you greet the sun
and other stars.

 If having a soul 
means being able
 to feel love and loyalty
 and gratitude, 
then animals are better off 
than a lot of humans.

Our Existence is Resistance.

A L O H A From Honolulu!

And now that you don't
have to be perfect,
you can be good. John Steinbeck

Progress depends less on
talent than motivation
and opportunity.
Growth is not about the
natural gifts you have it's
about the character you build.
Adam Grant

You win by
not playing their game. Don't be what they
expect you to be.

I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may find myself. For I have learned that the greater part of our misery or unhappiness is determined not by our circumstance but by our disposition. Martha Washington 1st First Lady (FLOTUS) of the USA
