Magic Sparkles Of Happiness ~ I Am Grateful For Life

Chapter 4 ~ I Am Grateful For Life And Life Is Grateful For Me

This article contains fragments from the chapter 4 of the book Magic Sparkles of Happiness.

“Joy is the simplest form of gratitude." – Karl Barth

grateful

I am grateful for my work and my work is grateful for me.

I am grateful for life and life is grateful for me.
I am grateful for people and people are grateful for me. And I am grateful for appreciation and appreciation is grateful for me.

I am grateful for hugs and hugs are grateful for me.

I am grateful that I understand perfectly the good things sent to me from the Universe.

You understand that you enjoy the benefits of you being/feeling grateful, which is an amazing feeling.

And you also enjoy the wonderful answer of the Universe, which is more powerful, because the Universe is bigger than you.

The affirmations from this chapter imply a harmonious resonance between you and life, which will bring you gratitude, love, serenity, security, and confidence.

In I am grateful for the Universe and the Universe is grateful for me, it is inherently implied that the Universe is always grateful for me, no matter what I do; which is true.
It implies a harmonious resonance, a partnership between me and the Universe. This is a complete affirmation.

The Universe is always grateful for us

It sustains us always, just that most of the time we do not feel its love, in our consciousness. Because what we feel in our consciousness needs to have a root inside of us.

When the energy pattern of a certain feeling or emotion is not inside us, the Universe cannot make us feel anything. The Universe sends and sends and sends and sends to us all its abundance and nothing sticks to us, since there are no roots inside us, no burgeoned seeds inside us with which he can connect and create towards us a flow/bridge of abundance.

The same principle applies to every good feeling that exists in this world, among which Love is the most important, feelings like gratitude, enthusiasm, passion, kindness, generosity, compassion, gentleness, happiness, acceptance, warm-heartedness. And this attitude makes you think in a positive and happy way, therefore making you feel positive and happy.

“Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all the others." – Marcus Tullius Cicero

I AM GRATEFUL FOR * * * AND * * * IS GRATEFUL FOR ME

“We learned about gratitude and humility – that so many people had a hand in our success, from the teachers who inspired us to the janitors who kept our school clean… and we were taught to value everyone’s contribution and treat everyone with respect." – Michelle Obama

Author’s word

This book contains positive affirmations that make you feel happy. I recommend you to read throughout the chapters, taking each sentence, one by one. The sentences are arranged in a certain serene flow but can also be read separately.

The writing of this book has begun with my daily writings. I had some blissful, full of love, mesmerizing days when I just felt that I want to connect my own being with positive, high and strong words. Then connect myself with everything around me, connect my consciousness with the reality outside me. In this state I began to write this book.

Magic Sparkles of Happiness ~ I Used To Not Love And Now I Am Loving

By Elena D. Calin

Chapter 2 ~ I Used To Not Love And Now I Am Loving

“I’d far rather be happy than right any day." – Douglas Adams

used

I used to not feel loved and now I am feeling so loved. I just feel, now, so loved.

I used to not feel so alive and now I am feeling so alive. I just somehow feel alive now. I used not to feel like this. And now I feel like this.

I used to think I am not blessed and now I am feeling blessed. It just happened for me. I feel blessed. I used not to feel like this. I used to feel different. Now I feel blessed. It happened to me.

I used to not love people so much. Maybe I loved a few people. And now I am feeling love for so many people. I love singers, dancers, writers of movies, people that take care of the bakery in front of my house, the ones that take care of the park near me where I love to walk, and the neighbors that keep me secure in my house because we all live, together, in a building. And all the other people, so many people that are just amazing. Now I am just used to loving people.

I used to not love my body. And now I am feeling so much love for my body.

My body is a miracle; I used to not believe this. Just that now I do feel like this. I feel love for my body. I used not to feel it. And now I feel this love. I used not to respect myself so much and now I practice self-respect. Life is so much easier if I give self-respect to me when I need it. I love self-respect.

I used to think mainly at the not so good stuff that was happening all around the world. And I felt that these pictures are making me feel like I was living in a not secure world.

And now I am thinking mainly at all the good, beautiful, fabulous, mesmerizing, breath taking stuff that is happening all around the world. I have no control over all the not so good stuff which is happening in the world. Just that now I am also thinking that I have no control over the good stuff that is happening in the world.

This good stuff is multiplying in the world without me controlling it.

No matter if I have trust in people or I don’t, in reality there are these millions of people that are committed to see beauty in the world. They surf, they throw themselves from the cliffs into the water and then climb back to do it again. They run in races, they give birth to children, they dance, they teach other people how to dance, they just do all these millions of good stuff in the world.

And I could, and maybe actually I did, dedicate my life in visualizing all this beauty on Earth. The more I picture all this beauty, all this magic abundance, I know that I will not have time in my life to, at least, think of them, not to discover them, just to have a picture of them in my mind.

Then I remember that all is abundance. Therefore time is also in abundance for everyone. So I know and feel that I will have more than enough time to picture and discover all the beauty on this paradise which we all call Earth. Because we all live forever, right?

I used to not trust myself and now I am doing it.

I trust myself. And it seems that since I trust myself, others trust me also.

I used not to smile when I was walking alone on the street and now I smile whenever I remember to. And some people passing on the street besides me smile also without thinking why, just because they had a glance of my smiling face. And I like this, to make them smile, only because they passed me by. So I try to remember and do it as often as I can.

used1

I used to think other people consume my love and now I am happy that they feel my love.

Actually people only feel my love when I overflow with it. I used not to know this about life. I used not to know that you give, only when you overflow with something. I used not to overflow with love so often. And this is why, when I overflew love in the past, people felt my love, then the overflow stopped, so the love stopped, I did not feel it anymore and I believed that they’ve consumed my love.
And I so wanted to enjoy more of that love. Just that now I overflow daily with love, I am like a never-ending river. I am grateful for this. I know I used to not feel like this.

I used to not feel young inside my mind and now I feel so young. I know I used to feel I have an old mind; I felt it in the past even if I was less than 25 years old. I used to say that my face looks young but that I feel my mind is so old. Now I feel my mind is so young. I am happy that I will learn so many things in this life.

I used to not feel the freedom and now I feel the freedom.

I used to feel not free. I used to feel that all the people are not living freely, in their small concrete boxes all their life, in our small bedrooms. I used not to understand how they can live like this, not free.

Now I feel the freedom. Now I feel others freedom also.
There are so many free people in the world. There are so many people that freely do what they know they should do.
They follow the Love.

Now I think of all the people that are creating the life they want. And I allow them to do this, in my mind. Now I just do the same, feel free and create the life I want.
I discovered that people are allowing me to have my freedom, nobody actually tries to stop me from doing what I love and being who I love to be. Before this, I was living in illusion. I was trapped by my own perception.

I used to not have fun in what I was doing during the day and now I just have fun in my daily simple activities.

I have fun when I dress, when I walk, when I brush my hair, when I clean my teeth, when I write, when I just say doing nothing. I used to not have so much fun when I was writing and now I just have fun.

Somehow I make it fun. All these ideas come to me and make me smile. Sometimes I believe I can write forever, or I could get dressed forever, or I could brush my hair forever, or I could smile forever. Or I could look at the blue sky forever, or I could walk in the snow in quiet forever, or I could kiss someone forever. So many things that I want to do forever, and all of them are from this world.

I used to not feel good and now I just feel good.

I feel good! And I still have to sleep 7-8 hours every 16-17 hours. Just that now I feel good with this ritual of my human nature. And I still have to get dressed and go to work.

And I still have to eat three times and take other different little snacks during a day. And I still need to wash my body. And I still need to go to the toilet every day. And I still need to wash my hands every time after going to the toilet. And I still have to drink liters of water. And I am tired during the day from time to time. And I still have headaches from time to time. And I still need to buy food for my cat. And I still need to wake up in the morning. So many mornings!

Thankfulness to you and thankfulness to me also that I do all this every day. I used to not feel grateful for doing all these and now I feel grateful. Now I try to color all my doings with the colors of love and gratitude. I don’t try to do all I do, only out of love or gratitude; this is very hard.

But I try to do my daily activities, which I am already doing, with drops of love and gratitude in them. It’s like a rain of light pouring on all my doings. And somehow things changed without me directly changing them. Now I just feel good!

“Happiness depends upon ourselves." – Aristotle

Homework 2:

Please allow me to give to you another homework which will help you to build your own personalized happy moment:

Therefore, make your own blessings replacing the following sparkles with your own words:

I USED TO NOT * * * * AND NOW I AM * * * *

“My hope is that the description of God’s love in my life will give you the freedom and the courage to discover… God’s love in yours." – Henry Nouwen

10 Beautiful Positive Words That Will Bright Your Day

Everyone wants their day to be bright. But the truth is you cannot start your day with negativity and expect positivity at the end.

There is a common saying that “a merry heart doeth good like medicine" In fact sometimes, all you need is to fine-tune your mind with positive words to feel better and have a bright day.

However, if you are ready for change, then say these words consistently to yourself and also imbibe them in your heart.

  1. Love

Love is a beautiful word that heals. It will make you forget about hurtful past and concentrate on building something great. Love yourself completely. Remember if you don’t love yourself, then it will be difficult for others to love you and also for you to appreciate love when given.

Love heals! It sees everything as perfect even when they are not. You’ll have a very bright day when the only thing that crosses your mind is love for yourself and others. In fact, the world would be a peaceful place if only everyone understands the importance of love.

  1. Beauty

The word “beauty" carries with it some great amount energy. You will feel beautiful on the inside and outside using this word on yourself every day. It will make you bold and confident about your body and the things you do. You’ll feel extremely proud of yourself and what other people say about you won’t have any effect on you. And even though you lack some features, you still feel good about yourself.

  1. Joyfulness

The word “joyfulness" is one of those that can brighten your day and also affect other people around. Of course, you cannot be in a good mood and expect others to mourn. Always be joyful. See everything working in your favor even when they aren’t.

Light eliminates darkness. And no matter the darkness of the darkest night, it does not prevent light from shining bright. Be cheerful and the people around you would follow suit. “A warm smile is the universal language of kindness" William Arthur

  1. Progress

Compliment yourself for every little progress you make. Do not compare yourself to others. Life is not a competition, so whatever success you achieve is worth celebrating. See yourself progressing in everything you do, whether the outcome is good or bad. “If there is no struggle, there is no progress.” Frederick Douglass

  1. Safe

Don’t think of harm coming your way. Tell yourself you are safe from all evil. Do not also conceive evil thoughts against other people. Let your heart be free and do not think of harming others. “While we may not be able to control all that happens to us, we can control what happens inside us.” Benjamin Franklin

  1. Hope

You need to have hope and believe everything will work out fine. Always be positive no matter how things are going.”Believe you can and you’re halfway there.” Theodore Roosevelt

  1. Successful

Think positive in everything you do. See yourself succeeding even though achieving success in that endeavor is challenging. Remember a dog cannot give birth to a goat. It is most likely for success to come your way when you conceive it. “Optimism is a happiness magnet. If you stay positive, good things and good people will be drawn to you.” Mary Lou Retton

  1. Healthy

Don’t just think but say that you are healthy and act it. Feel grateful that you are healthy and always be optimistic. “It is health that is the real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver." Mahatma Gandhi

  1. Comfortable

Being contented will help eliminate stress. It will also prevent you from worrying too much. Be comfortable with your status and even though you make progress, see it as a step forward. I am content; that is a blessing greater than riches; and he to whom that is given need ask no more." Henry Fielding

  1. Laugh

Do things that will make you laugh! Move with people who will also make you laugh. A simple laughter can brighten your day. It can take away stress, pain, and worries. “At the height of laughter, the universe is flung into a kaleidoscope of new possibilities" Jean Houston

Positive Words to Boost Your Child’s Self-Esteem

Self-esteem reflects one’s belief and attitude towards one’s own worth. It heavily influences choices, decisions and motivation to take care of self and explore full potential.

Development of positive and healthy self-esteem is crucial to the happiness and success of children and teenagers. Kids with high self-esteem are more probable to persistently strive for the accomplishment of their objectives and ambitions.

Those who have lower self-confidence do not consider themselves capable of achieving the goals; let important things slide and tend to be less persistent and stubborn to faceoff hardship.
They may have same goals as children with higher self-esteem but they are less stirred to pursue them to the upshot.

Parents and teachers can play a major role in boosting a child’s self-esteem.

Five Words to Define Travel

 

I love traveling, and I love languages, so imagine my excitement when I came across a treasure trove of the trip words that describe how we feel before, during, and after we travel.

These five words for travel will define your feeling for traveling.

travel

Just like a photo can’t adequately catch what it feels like to stand on the edge of a fjord, neither can ‘wanderlust’ fully reveal how we feel when we desire our next venture. These travel words are literary treasures which have been selected from languages around the world. From Japanese to Swedish, Latin to Greek, travel brochures of the future will be peppered with travel words like of resfeber, Solivagant, and Sehnsucht.

Without further ado, here are five words for travel to add to your vocabulary.

 

  1. Resfeber (n.)

Pronounced: RACE-fay-ber

Origin: Swedish

Meaning: This travel word belongs to the restless race of the traveler’s spirit before the adventure starts when anxiety and joy are tangled together.

We’ve all felt this, the jump in your heart moment when you officially purchase your plane tickets. When the excitement and fear flood to your soul all at once, creating a healthy mixture of passions that can leave you feeling anxious or physically ill.

 

  1. Solivagant (adj.)

Pronunciation: sO-li-‘vA-gant

Origin: Latin

Meaning: Wandering alone.

Not all those who roam are lost, but all those who walk alone are solivagant. From the Latin word solivagus, meaning lonely or solitary, solivagant describes anyone who enjoys meandering around new countries, apart, to take it all in.

 

  1. Sehnsucht (n.)

Pronunciation: zeɪnˌzʊxt

Origin: German

Meaning: A nostalgic longing and desire in the soul for voyages past and eternity.

One author explained it as the “inconsolable longing in the personal heart for we know not what." Another related it to “a longing for a far-off country, but not one which we could identify."

When you’re not traveling this can be a powerful feeling, or when you think about the journey you’ve done, and you crave you could relive it all over again.

 

  1. Dérive (n)

Pronunciation: de.ʁiv

Origin: French

Meaning: An impulsive and unplanned journey where the traveler leaves their life behind, allows themselves to be guided by the landscape and architecture.

Elucidated as “drift," dérive is the notion that even if you drift, you will end up on the best path. This could explain life in general, but it also reveals small journeys. When you’re wandering through a new city, and you just happen to walk on a path that takes you to great discoveries.

 

  1. Schwellenangst (n.)

Pronunciation: ‘shwel-en-ahngst

Origin: German

Meaning: Fear of crossing a threshold to embark on something new.

From schwelle (“threshold") and angst (“anxiety"), this word explains that feeling you get before deciding to set out on a new journey. Argh! Did I make the right decision?

Up to you!

 

Which travel words do you relate to the most? What others would you add?

Thanks for the read and I believe you enjoyed this post.
