Happiest Places are Between Us

Happiest Places are Between Us

What greater thing is there for two human souls, than to feel that they are joined for life–to strengthen each other in all labor, to rest on each other in all sorrow, to minister to each other in all pain, to be one with each other in silent unspeakable memories at the moment of the last parting? ~ George Eliot, Adam Bede

Happiest Places

On the backdrop of the beautiful Caribbean ocean, I want to share a reflection on relationships. The popularized tagline of Disneyland is “The Happiest Place On Earth.” For many Disneyland may very well be, but, consider something much deeper like the space between you and another, especially close relationships.

They are not geographical ones. It’s the places between us and the closer they are the more at ease we are the happier they tend to be.”

A Healthy Inner Circle Starts with a Healthy Inner-Self

A Healthy Inner Circle Starts with a Healthy Inner-Self

It seems the older we get, the tighter our inner circle becomes. When life has you down, some of those you thought had your back run, others . . . sometimes strangers surprise you and fill that empty space up. Oh, but life has a great balancing act and when that axle turns and you are right side up again . . . you will definitely not be looking for any long, lost “friends” because your inner circle is battle-tested to win! ~ Sanjo Jendayi

Forging a Healthy Inner-self

Are your energy levels high? Do you attend to your physical fitness? Do you feel self-assured? Are you confident?

Forging a healthy inner-self does not happen overnight. It is a life-long journey of discovery. Because life can be a zany ride, it has a tendency to leave you vulnerable to negativity and self-doubt. And, if you allow it, it begins to erode your mental and physical strength, inner power of trust, reliability and confidence in your ability to accomplish things in your daily life. Believing in and feeling good about yourself is paramount to forming a healthy inner-self.
