wishing you a relaxing and productive day filled with happiness and a peaceful and stable mind

This is a kind wish that Kathy received a few years ago…
and one  that’s now hanging as a “suncatcher”
in windows of  her home….

  illuminating a “wish”…

for a balance of ….
relaxation and productivity,

a blossoming of…
happiness,

and the developing of….
a peaceful, steady and stable mind…

And so I pass this wish along to every one of us….
may we nourish and develop all of these qualities
as much, and as often, as possible
throughout each day of our lives

9/14/12 “Just trying to be happier or have a productive day is a simple, yet profound, motivation…”

~

~

~

that excerpt…taken from the following  bit of advice…
an idea that I was amazed  by…

~

~

~

~

~

~

of course…as I think more about it…
“being happier” or “productive” involves living with
ethics, generosity, effort, patience, awareness…
and so many other positive qualities…
so perhaps not as simple as it first seems….
but I still like it and am inspired by the ideas!
“simple and achievable…”
