Smile  -  And the Whole World Smiles With You

Wow !!

I have had a really great day !

Filled with eighteen hours of work, which is actually a lot of fun for me. In between that, I have met a lovely lady of 58 years, who lives just one kilometer away from me. Bought my groceries, returned a dvd and had a success with my art piece of the day.

Being inspired by every little detail that I have in my life, has proven to be incredible medicine for my soul. Laughter also being very high on my list and almost a daily blessing for me.

I have some crazy , intelligent, witty friends and literally everything becomes a joke. The biggest joke of the whole set up is, me, myself. I can laugh at myself most of the day. That is really magical, as your joker lives with you twenty four hours a day.

My mind just goes wayward and even when hit with a real clanger, I somehow manage to succeed in seeing the funny side to it. I began living , one hour at a time about three years ago. It is so easy to just take in one hour at a time and even easier, if you can live for the now.

I have read many inspirational books for the last twenty years of my life. It has helped my attitude to life immensely. I seriously suggest that others follow this. It is totally medicinal.

It amazes me how wonderful life is and yet not much has changed, but the inner being of myself. The outlook to life, the gift of being able to help others and the magical feeling of doing volunteer work for charities.

There is always a way of making yourself being valuable. With this, becomes the feeling of being valued. The amazing wonder of it as well is, that once you help others to succeed, it boosts your moral to succeed yourself. When helping others up in the world, you often find that they in return, do the same for you.

A chat in the bank queue , a smile at the little old lady, a helping hand when the toddler drops the dummy. It all helps and is always a break through to make a new friend, out of a stranger.

Ever tried putting your name down for a charity as a volunteer ? Wow ! An incredible experience, with many, many rewarding days. Much laughter as well, I might add.

So , bring out the inspirational books, rush out and volunteer for a charity, go as Mother Theresa said. Go in love , not in protest. Go for peace, not for war.

Show the people around you that,

it's nice to be important but it's more important to be nice !

A woman in love, (I read between the lines) a happy woman who can laugh in the face of ailment, a woman so driven to help others that she shall receive in return, one that can laugh in the face of adversity, a young girl I seem slightly to remember, one I now regret not knowing better today. Ronnie you are actually an inspiration to me. I watch you with great interest on FB and wonder what you gain from it, I now realise you get a lot, self satisfaction is so important in ones daily undertakings and I think you must get so much satisfaction every day of your life. I am so glad you joined the article writing, as I think your potential is beyond description, I also am honoured you follow me but I am more enthralled and honoured that I follow you. I see big things a foot for the future of Ronnie the little girl that knows me from West Nicholson. Bless you, God bless you.
