Thanks a fucking bunch!

Ha! There’s gratitude for you

Thankfulness ‘s’a gift

.

n.b. An interpretation of a recent psychological study suggests that brain imaging shows that those who are generous and giving, who maintain a grateful mindset, are more optimistic than those who do not and that this attitude is highlighted by particular neural activity. It is a mindset that can be developed and sustained; it is not necessary to wallow in misery.

Keeping a gratitude journal is offered as one way to develop this mindset. Other methods include, going regularly to mass, turning to prayers five times daily, or being ever-thankful for what you’ve got; family, friends, health, breath in your lungs, sunrise, sunset, birds’ song, Winter frosts, Spring flowers, Portsmouth FC, whatever.

Let Eric & Ernie sing this post out, (but I don’t endorse their reference to “drinking”).

On Relaxation

Important routines

Maintain balance, status quo

Hair down? Just cut it

.

n.b. We hold ourselves tight in patterns and programmes, duties and responsibilities. These may be chosen voluntarily, imposed by the life-stage we are in, or consequences of decisions and actions taken many years previously. The challenge is how to get a break from unnecessary obligations, or the expectations imposed on us by others, so that a more open, healthier and happier life can be explored.

The first step must be to relax and free the mind. Sunshine and a bit of personal space, let yourself float free; see what bubbles up. Take things from there.

“Location cannot be found”

I know it’s out there. Trust Me.

Release the handbrake.

n.b. Better to travel in hope than to sit around waiting for an out-of-date program to tell you where you’re heading.

Just get moving; keep your wits about you. You will know your destination when you see it. Good luck!
