How Many Questions Can You Ask Today?


The harvest


“Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning.”—Albert Einstein—

Three things to do today:

“Learn from yesterday”—Look back and review what you learned, good and bad.
“Live for today”—Enjoy yourself. Fold the day in your arms and love it.
“Hope for tomorrow”—Plan for tomorrow with humor and optimism.

Facing the future

“Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree.”—Martin Luther—

Looking at this quote takes me to the one in which Winnie the Pooh says, “What if it doesn’t?”
What if the world doesn’t go to pieces? What if the tree doesn’t fall on you? What then?

Accept what is happening today for what it is but look forward to all of the good things ahead. Plant your tree. Eat an apple. Hope and Love are eternal.
Share a smile. Give someone an apple
Everything is going to be all right.

Practice Your Optimism

“Hope is important because it can make the present moment less difficult to bear. If we believe that tomorrow will be better, we can bear a hardship today.”
-Thich Nhat Hanh
This is lesson number one in my belief that optimism can be learned and enhanced with practice.

What Are Your Greatest Treasures? Find Them Here…

Quotes and Notes #291, August 22

Nature's pictures lead us to beautiful concepts.

Nature’s pictures lead us to beautiful concepts.

“What is love? I have met in the streets a very poor young man who was in love. His hat was old, his coat worn, the water passed through his shoes and stars through his soul.”—Victor Hugo—

I found a most interesting image in the end cut on a 6X6 post. I paid attention to it, and it led me to today’s beautiful quote from Victor Hugo which led me to another observation:

Over the ages, there have always been countless numbers of people who had little or nothing. People who didn’t know where their next meal would come from—poor people.

But, over the ages, these people have always had three treasures: hope, love, and laughter. They have known that these three things would help them to live through their roller-coaster lives.

Sometimes we become wrapped up in our possessions, our drama, and our self-adopted stress. Sometimes we lose sight of our true treasures. Remember them, hope, love, and laughter.

Share a smile with someone less fortunate than you.
Everything is going to be all right.

Will everything be all right? We'll find out

Will everything be all right? We’ll find out

“Hope is the feeling that the feeling you have isn’t permanent.”–Jean Kerr–

Sometimes, when things are not going well, we put all of our psychological assets in a bag and shake it. When we look into the bag after the thorough mixing, we find—without fail—that the most important one is right on top. That asset is “HOPE.”

Hope is our best friend in any adversity. Hope is the foundation for optimism. Optimism is the thing that tells us…
“Everything is going to be all right.”

I hope that you will share a smile today

Karma is a Law of Nature

 Quotes and Notes #151, April 4

“Plant seeds of happiness, hope, success and love, it will all come back to you in abundance.  This is the law of nature.”–Steve Maraboli  

This is where the concept of karma comes from. And we all know the verse from The Bible, “As ye sow, so shall ye reap.”

When you share the good things, the good things, in turn, give you a good feeling of happiness and contentment.

Start the day with  sharing a smile

Everything is going to be all right
