“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

A Model Experience

Recently, I spent a few days in Sweden. What an amazing trip. The views were stunning and the city of Stockholm majestic, but it was the people and the human interactions that knocked me over.

Letter from The Publisher

Recently, we introduced a new column written by teenagers called Teen Voices. The idea behind it is to help parents (and other adults) get a glimpse of the world through a teen’s eyes.

The Day a Mother is Born

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.
