Every moment is a good moment to have GOOOOOOD moment!

“And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.”
― Haruki Murakami

Glass half full, make lemonade from lemons, you can see the roses or the thorns…the list of optimistic perspective suggestion is endless really… but it is only once you have fully experienced the other side of the coin that you can develop a truly deep, meaningful optimism – a broad sense of gratitude, understanding and consideration for all people, things and circumstance. Well, that is my opinion anyway. Not rocket science really, to entertain the fact that living with or through something on one end of a spectrum would develop an appreciation for precisely the opposite.

From my own experience, some of the most compassionate, empathetic joyful, positive and loving individuals are those who have had an incredibly rough life, or gone through often unimaginable challenges yet have fought their way through the adversity and made a conscious decision to triumph positively… because it is – a choice, everything is… despite how many may argue this, our lives comprise of moments and within each and every one of those "moments" we have the choice to steer it in any direction we choose - which ultimately affects the next moment and the one after that... and the one after that... I want to share a video clip with you… and yes, it is on TikTok – I am sure you will survive ;)


I could watch (and listen) to this clip a thousand times and never tire of it... because she NAILED IT! Our happiness IS up to us!!! - and there is NO BUT to follow that statement, because whilst you may not feel like you can change your "bigger picture" - you are wrong! SO WRONG! Change your attitude, perspective and focus in the small passing "moments" and the big picture will sort itself out, ALL BY ITSELF! Fact! And on that note... Happy Friday beautiful people...



Until next time...
Much Love from Cape Town, South Africa xxx






Happy Friday @jaynie every day is a good day, even when it is bad something will happen to lift one up....

Staying positive!





@jaynie, you've been given LUV from @joanstewart.

Check the LUV in your H-E wallet. Daily limits change soon, check @LUVshares (2/10)

Especially when we open our minds to that :) Happy Sunday hon xxx

Hopefully a better new week, thanks for wishes!

Not quite a fried egg flower, but it's close.

A cherished moment can be made up of anything, and sometimes nothing; it's not in the time or event where true value is found but in the feeling of it. Sometimes the smallest moments, seemingly insignificant, can have the most profound impact upon a person and create the most cherished moments that endure, spanning time and space. Or so this knucklehead finds.

I concur with the knucklehead :)

Moment made.

Yes... "I'm gonna make it a good day. I'm gonna make it happen today because I am in control of my own happiness!"
Happy Friday, @jaynie.

And now a Happy Sunday to you sweetie :)

Happy Monday to you too, @jaynie!
I hope your day will be fine😍!

Thanks honey - it was a RAD day :)

The video won't play for anyone without a TikTok account, but hey, no big deal. The opening quote by Haruki Murakami and the couple of paragraphs you wrote after it are wonderful! 💜

"...that living with or through something on one end of a spectrum would develop an appreciation for precisely the opposite."

Yes, it is precisely things of this nature that deepen our understanding of this wacky, crazy "human condition" in which we're all trapped! Wakenings such as this are golden! 🌞

Glistening Gold! :)

Pity about the clip - that chick is totally classic! :D

Happy Day, @jaynie Every day has something good in it, even if for the fact that it is over. :)

All kidding aside, you know, for me, it's always the little things in life that mean the most.

Love and hugs. You know...

Yes indeed love - you are admirable in that respect! You ALWAYS seek out the silver lining and I love that about you!

You nailed it! What you wrote is wonderful and the opening quote from Haruki Murakami is great. I love your motivational side - well done, friend!
