Words of Wisdom

The roots of all goodness lie in the soil of appreciation for goodness.
~ Dalai Lama

Whether appreciating the good we have bestowed upon others, or that which we have received, being thankful for the goodness in our lives helps make our hearts grow strong and resilient. Every good deed or word nourishes the heart against the withering effects of negativity and despair. Connecting with this feeling of deep appreciation when we most need it can get us through times when it seems we are hard pressed to find what is good and solid. You will notice that when we concentrate on appreciating the good, we feel lighter, happier and more content in the garden of our lives. That's a crop worth tending to.

Remember to take care of yourself.

Utilize your memories of goodness as an anchor to ground you during trying times..

Happy Birthday!
