Be Happy

Pause Awhile

We all need time to reflect, to put things in

perspective, to truly value things in our lives and to

appreciate them.  To reflect properly, we must be

calm and balanced.  Put your life on pause.  Sit on a 

quiet beach or in a tranquil garden.  Somewhere

you can muse without distraction.  Calmness and 

balance will join you there.


"The hardest thing to see is what is in front

of your eyes...Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe


From the book Be Happy by

This is such a wise advice Cheryl!
Everybody needs to pause from to time... and then take new departures and consider things with another eye...
Have a wonderful and peaceful weekend Cheryl!

I'm in love with this stunning image. It has the most beautiful soft colors the kind I could drink if possible! Creaminess for sure! These are very wise words indeed and I think I'll write them diwn to reflect on frequently throughout the year.

Cheryl, I've spent some lovely time this afternoon reading your last several posts, and I can surely say that you are an extraordinary person. This post, with your soft and subtle hydrangea combined with such powerful words, is a perfect mantra for my days. You share your wisdom here in such a kind and open way - always understanding. I also enjoyed a stroll through your portfolio - and your photos of your family touch me deeply - so much genuine joy. Thank you!
