Is That You Radiating?

in ThoughtfulDailyPost28 days ago (edited)


Let the sun shine in your life, and the joy touch your soul.

Dare to reach out just a bit - and touch that soul. Fill it with sunshine, then let it go, let it go.

Whispered thoughts
From the stillness, they came

There are so many free lessons in life that are priceless. Malcolm Forbes hit the nail on the head with just one of the many thoughts that ran through his head.


To live long and achieve happiness, cultivate the art of radiating happiness.

I am thankful for the strangers that I encounter through daily living. Their gifts ripple out upon the spiritual waters of the earth and uplift the bond of our shared humanity. People make the world go round.

Happiness is contagious, it's true. I was easily influenced by this dance troupe on the streets of Washington, DC - and I didn't even know them. Their joy touched my soul, setting off a reaction to spread that joy to another, and another... until, eventually, it was like we had decorated the city with it. Don't underestimate the power of your kindness, your happiness or the joy of it all. People respond to positives. I have to be honest. I get so much more gratification in looking for the silver lining than to focus on the negative aspect of things. It has an uplifting effect. Not to be confused with living in your own fantasy world, that is just not real.

Sometimes that happiness is as simple as catching a fish, or having the time to throw that line in the water. Sometimes it is just feeling the sun on your face and the breeze on your back. It doesn't have to be earth shattering amazing. It just feels good and most days, that is just enough.

And sometimes, it is someting so amazing, you can't believe that you did it. Choose happiness to pair up with your joy. And remember, kindness counts, wherever you go, whatever you do.

All I have are my words, armed in my mind, written in pen, stand by stand. Oh, yes. Still by hand. It has a different feel. Altered not by keys, backspace, and delete, I write, erase, tear it to pieces and start all over again. And again.

It’s my way. I walk out to the deep end of the page and dive right in.

I had a certainty that my life was waiting for summer to come back, for she left far too early for me. I can see it if I close my eyes, or so I thought. Perhaps, in reality, it is not the summer that I long for, but, the carefree, loving feeling that comes along with it. Until then, may there always be a flower to color your world. #alwaysaflower

I leave you with this, my friends. I raise my glass to you, those that inspire me and don't even know it. I want to thank you for brightening my world. It's a better place with you in it. ❤️

The Naming of Cats

The Naming of Cats is a difficult matter,
It isn’t just one of your holiday games;
You may think at first I’m as mad as a hatter
When I tell you, a cat must have THREE DIFFERENT NAMES.

I think there is something to be said for a fantasy world. People have been reaching out for it for ages. Perhaps through religion, certainly through stories and literature. More recently television and video games. I have to admid in many respects the virtual world is not too shabby. You can play in a world that has no mosquitoes! lol.

Probably true. But, at some point, you need to come in out of the dark and face the light, no? Fantasy is just that and is reality that bad? Probably not as bad as people think, just easier to slip away into the cyberworld/fantasy world.

No, mosquitos is a draw, except, they never bite me.

If mosquitos never bite you, then you live a charmed life. If you live a charmed life, then there would be no need/desire for fantasy... You see?

@dswigle,

When GINA told me you had made a #thoughtfuldailypost, I honestly giggled! We have known each other for some time, and I do consider you a very good friend, as well as a mentor. Conversely, I have always considered you a wonderful writer, and blogger. So knowing you decided to post in my community, made my day!

Like we've discussed many times... like the "oneness" of the smells of flowers and memories, you hit the head on the nail. It's everything about each season. And I am thrilled that you chose to share this positive and thoughtful energy with us. Thank you, my friend!

I sure wish I had heard that giggle! :) I cannot believe that as long as you and I have been on here, that it took me all this time to post to your community. Honestly, it wasn't on purpose. I have never considered myself a writer, not even for a moment. When I read some of the things I see on here, I am embarrassed to put my efforts up.

It is everything about the season, isn't it? Especially those small things that you can't even define, but, you can feel it. No more wasting those positive feelings! I am giving them all to you! :)

Thanks for having me!

Appreciate the LUV and Wine!

Not to worry, my friend. My Community and Curation Account aren't that old. I've been extremely blessed, by all of the Staff in The Terminal. As well as many dear friends, such as yourself, that continue to support me.

A smile from a stranger is a wonderful gift more so in some cases to a greeting, it lifts the soul telling you there are people who find happiness, no matter how sad they may be.

Stop wishing for any particular season, make each special or we end up chasing seasonal joy, losing much time!

Wishing you a cheerful day Denise, once again I find solace in the warm words at the end of the day. Life is strange yet a smile breaks the weird back to normal.

You know, I do that, wishing for a longer season, but, don't get me wrong, it is simply musing for what is gone and having enjoyed it so much. I have already moved on to the autumnal season, even if it is still hot. :)

The smile of strangers is a daily treat and I have found that if you give one, you usually get one. I am so glad that you stopped in today, I was actually thinking of you when I wrote this.

I has your name written all over it.

Thank you for the wine!

Not to be confused with living in your own fantasy world, that is just not real.

But still many people escape to their imagination. And I absolutely/completely understand them. Somehow we have to endure this deformed, cruel and unjusticeful world. Some people do this by playing video games, others by using drugs, and also others by doing and/or using other things.

The fantasy is often better than the real(ity).

Do not get me wrong, I do not like drugs, I have not used drugs so far. I just see the things from the perspective of the users, and I understand why they use it.

I am still trying to be happy and positive, but there are just circumstances when you simply cannot.

I give you some !PIZZA and !LUV.

I was thinking the same. Such is the appeal of video games.

I am sure a good amount of people would agree with you.

I give it and I understand. I am not sure how I would react with a constant downward spiral. I actually think you're doing quite well and keeping positive most of the time and I applaud you for that. The one thing I can say is that I hope life gets better for you. There's always hope. Have a great day ahead!

Thanks for the pizza and LUV!

Thank you so much for the upvote!

They joys are everywhere and try to make enjoy it without thinking about what after next come, the grils' on the street are pretty good smiling, the man catching fish and hold on with smiling, even the pilot is also smiling though they are not sure what happened after next. That's the sprit of our life to be happy and make happy others.

The girls on the street were so fun! Didn't you love those street dancers? They were the best and when I told them it was for a blog, they put on the Ritz for me. I have a few nice shots of them. That is what I call cooperation, without any prodding. :) The best kind.

Honestly, on many occasions that in my mind, i want to join with those dancer on street but i have no rhythm except jumping..... :)

There are so many smiling faces in your posting it's hard not to smile myself. That dance troupe looks especially lively and I love that pose. Focus on those positives!

You're not in the new Top Gun movie are you? 😀

I promise I don't do sequels. They are never as good as the original. :)

Fill it with sunshine, then let it go.

This is beautiful! There's so much light and bliss in letting go🥰🤗

Exactly. That is just the way I feel! Thank you for stopping by and leaving your kind words! I hope you have a wonderful day!

Wow, lovely photos! Great smiles... and that sure is a giant fish! Amazing! 😲

Thank you so much! Those girls had giant smiles, didn't they? It was a dancing troupe and they were adorable and were happy to pose for me, especially when I told them I was blogging.

The fish was pretty big and made a nice dinner! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving your words!

Yeah, that photo with the girls was my favourite!

Just wow, that pretty flower welcomed me when I started reading your post but it became lovelier when you showed me that cinematic view of that street with the lamp.

Of course, not to forget the thoughts you put through and I was amazed because every image was fitted with your thoughts.

Thank you, Paul! @mrnightmare I am so glad you could see the parallel in the post. Sometimes I wonder if it shows or if it looks like I just posted pictures randomly. :))

The view of the ocean and the dimly lit path is a favorite look that I try to capture when I can. Street lights often add an air of mystery of romantic charm to a scene. Then again, I have done some so bad, I wished the lights were off. :))

I hope you are having a great day. How is the treehouse coming along this week? You are probably hovering in place until the earning power switch is at full speed ahead!

It's almost done, I've been sleeping there for days now. I just stop because of lacking materials but since I can sleep on it for now I'm not hurrying it to be finished.

No, you're not sharing photos randomly because I've known you for a long that you always have wonderful images and thoughts.

I hope you're doing fine as well.

I knew you were sleeping there and thought you were waiting to get some materials. Just keep the vision and don't let it stay unfinished. It will feel much more like home complete, but, no rush on it.

Just make sure you promise yourself it will get done someday! I am sure you will!

hmm thanks, and yeah for sure. It's nice to sleep when you don't worry about your safety.

Absolutely!

That fish is so huge. Thanks for sharing beauty with words always. I'm inspired.

That fish was a pretty good catch! I promise you that dinner was delicious that night, paired up with roasted yams and corn on the cob, and a small side salad.

No yams from Ghana, so you KNOW they were small!

Kindness is the best Denise and your words flow with kindness touching everyone's soul I am absolutely sure. Oh to be positive, it only takes a second to be so - let it flow and that is what you always do. 🌸🌸🌸

Isn't that the truth? In everyday life, it takes no extra effort to be kind to others, but, it is also important that you stray away from toxic people. While I believe in trying to help negative people become more positive, I refuse to be drug down to that level while doing it.

I have no idea what brought that up, but, because you are so giving, I just never want that to happen to you.

Good morning from here! I hope you are having a great day!

Beautiful

Thank you so much for the kind word.
