Good morning dear friends and welcome to today’s Moment of Calm post. It is a short post and a simple message to remind you to Smile, Breathe and Be
Like most of you, there have been times in my life, when I’ve beaten myself up for things I’ve said or done; words which leave a cold tear in loved ones hearts and actions which left friends stunned and hurt. Like most of you I’ve spent far too many years worrying and wishing things could be different, and the unkind words erased and replaced with warmth and hugs. However, as you know, you can’t bring back the past, all you can do is to breathe, make amends and forgive.
Find It In Your Heart To Smile And Forgive
Forgiveness is at the heart of this festive season, and even if you do not celebrate Christmas, believe in Father Christmas or resonate with the Christian religion, there is something about this time of the year which makes you pause, ponder and reflect about life, friends and friendships. Amidst the commercial hype and glam and glitter of office parties and “forced attendance” at family gatherings and indulgent behaviour, there is something about Christmas which makes you want to be a “better person” and shift heaven and earth to bring a little light and sunshine to someone’s life.
So, in the spirit of peace and everlasting forgiveness for self and others, today my Christmas message to you is to Smile. And here are a few words to share to remind and encourage you of the beauty and magic of you.
Remember To Smile
Smile at yourself whenever you pass your reflection
Smile at your neighbour and the stranger you pass in the street
Smile at the municipal workers who silently keep your city and town clean
And most of smile at every child you see and send them a cheery wave and wish for a happy, healthy, fun and safe Christmas Time.
What’s your Christmas message, what theme or inspirational words do you have to share with other readers to inspire them to be happy and healthy this Christmas Time?
As usual we’d love you to write your thoughts in the comment box below as sharing is caring and together that’s how we love and grow.
And as a random act of kindness, share this post “Remember to Smile” with friends and loved ones on Facebook, Twitter or whatever social media platform you like to use.
All that remains is for me to wish you good health, strength and everlasting peace.
Keep warm and keep close to loved ones.
Thanks for your time and commitment to life
