I am looking forward to learning another language and using it to communicate with other people. Speaking and dreaming in a foreign language is an enlightening and uplifting experience.
One small positive thought
On my way home from a run I passed a pharmacy with the follow uplifting message:
One small positive thought can change your whole day 🙂
What a great thought for the day 🙂
Walking On Sunshine
New wave song Walking On Sunshine from English band Katrina & The Waves was a big hit in the 1980s. The song is uplifting and inspiring with the title lyrics referencing a state of great joy and excitement.
I’m walking on sunshine, whoa
And don’t it feel good
Flashdance… What a Feeling
When I heard this uplifting, inspiring and motivating Irene Cara song on the radio last night I knew I had to blog it today.
My favourite lyrics from the song are:
Take your passion
And make it happen
Everybody’s Free (To Feel Good)
This title of Rozalla’s song Everybody’s Free (To Feel Good) holds a fundamental truth: no matter the situation, whether we feel good or bad is our choice.
We don’t have total control over our circumstances but we have the freedom to choose our reaction to those circumstances. I vote we choose to feel good!
Fresh food is delicious
Yesterday morning I enjoyed the drive to my favourite farmers market. It’s my favourite farmers market because the produce is both fresh and very good value. I also like to buy from farmers markets to support local producers.
One of the first stalls I saw had beautiful, large and very fresh heads of broccoli. I usually walk to the end of the market to see what is available before buying on the way back. However, this broccoli looked so good I bought two heads straight away.
Another market highlight was the citrus season in full swing with local mandarins and oranges for sale at several stalls.
The broccoli inspired me to make soup and not long after arriving home I had a large pot of broccoli and potato cooking. The soup, topped with croutons made from bread bought at the baker’s stall, was a delicious meal, Yum!
The Only Way Is Up
The Only Way Is Up was a late 1980s hit song for Yazz and the Plastic Population. The song is a fun, uplifting dance track and its title is a fantastic positive mantra to have.
I’m working through my final week of work after more than 5 years on a project.
Leaving an organisation on good terms provides an opportunity to express appreciation for the assistance and friendship provided by colleagues.
I’ve also been heartened by the amount of compliments I have received.
I’m very grateful to have worked with many caring people on the project.
Reach (for the stars)
An upbeat, positive and inspiring song for the weekend 🙂
Reach for the stars
Climb every mountain higher
Reach for the stars
Follow your heart’s desire
The power of laughter
Isn’t laughter fantastic? A sense of humour is one of the greatest things we have and is something to be used regularly 🙂
