“Don’t worry, be happy”

A holiday wish to all.

“Peace on Earth”

A holiday wish to the planet

“Make Love Not War”

A holiday wish to mankind

“Pay it forward, serve others”

A holiday wish for us.

“Take a good look at myself and change what needs to be changed”

A holiday wish to myself, and for my friends, and family.

 

Remember that kindness works—for you and for others. Think how it might change your 2018.

Remember to smile a lot, others will notice.

Remember to look for what is good in every situation. If you do this for a year, think how different 2018 might look.

And a few other “remembers.”  – Take a drive with no destination. Do good. Be positive. Practice patience. Change your mind. Examine yourself. Mentor someone. Volunteer and make a difference. Nurture yourself. Lighten up. Forgive. Change. Inspire. Be more loving. Risk. Relax. Learn a card trick. Dream. Meditate. Take responsibility. Don’t fight. Laugh. Be grateful. Practice self-control. Set boundaries. Take the time to be extra clear. Talk on a phone. Talk in person. Pray more. Exercise. Don’t text and drive. Learn…and learn…and learn.

From all of us at Natural Awakenings, may your holiday season be filled with peace, love and laughter. See you in 2019!

Joe

May brings sunshine and flowers, and a new energy to the Northeast. It also brings us Mother’s Day. Of course, every day should be Mother’s Day, but that’s another column.

On The Other Side of Words

I have been thinking lately about words and how they fit into our world of communication. My 24-year-old son, Sean, tells me I need a college course in texting so he can make sense of what I’m trying to say in a text fashion. On self-examination—and the evidence before me—I have to plead guilty as charged.

Seeing What’s Good

I find myself wanting to write about the injustice of things—the penal system, gun control, blame, closed-minded people, war, violence, inequality, inappropriate behavior, prejudices and our education system—and then there’s health care and veterans’ rights.

Reflections on Life Changing Moments

This month I will have a birthday. I never gave much thought to birthdays, but for the past few weeks I’ve been thinking about my life’s turning points.

A Few Random Thoughts About a Happy New Year

Have a Happy New Year? Do you think most people, myself included, take the time to think about what they’re saying? How many times do you hear it or say it each holiday season?
