Sunshine Means a Lot to Me

Lately it has occurred to me
that if my emotional balance
depends on the moods
or opinions
of others
I'll never achieve
it for long.

True balance emerges
within myself
and does not rely
on the judgements of 

I hope YOU agree with me!!!

Dianne said...

I agree with you :)
I was watching a show about letting go of ego, of letting go of what others have done or not done to you
of realizing the power within yourself to be happy and at peace because of what YOU think and feel

it's powerful when you practice it

I so do agree with you, I used to spend so much time trying to keep everyone happy and while I still like to do that as far as I can, I've realised If I'm not happy doing something it's better not to..Oh la! that was a bit garbled haha! You certainly know how to get people thinking Cloudia

I'm with Voltaire. As evening comes and the curtains are closed, it is easier to think of being wrapped in the comfort of home. Making a nest and living life well is something we can all try.

I totally agree! I've been feeling very unbalanced lately, but realize that it must come from within.

"True balance emerges within myself
and does not rely on the judgements of others." I applaud that statement. Your photos are so cool Cloudia, the one that caught my eye this morning was the reflection of the palm among all the water drops, though the others were pretty amazing. Have a wonderful day my friend.

Teresa said...

I love the picture with the water drops. Your philosophizing really hits the mark. Have a great day!
