Straya Day 26th Jan 2016

  
Good Day, Beautiful People!

Happy Australia Day for my Aussies family and mates!  It was such a beautiful summer day to enjoy the simple things in life with mates like   Watching Australia Open, backyard cricket, boating, beach combing, have some shrimps on the Barbie, lamb roast, meat pies for most, the greens & raw food for organics, vegans & vegetarians. Meanwhile the rest will be likely to have a Vegemite sandwich, chomp some Anzac Biscuits, Tim Tam Biscuits, a slice of Lamingtons and nibble some Pavlova… Wash it all down with beer. 

Party Nails fit for this occasion:

Cervical Cancer Awareness; La sensibilisation au cancer du col utérin; Conciencia del cáncer de cuello uterino

  
Good Day, Beautiful People! 

I know most of us will support all cancer awareness and search for cure. January is a month for cervical cancer awareness.  So if you’re know any woman that are closed to you from age 17 to 70 please may this be a kind reminder for them to go for screening.  I’m talking to the real women who always put others first and tend to put self last and forget about self care.

   
    
   
The latest research is going to shock you is that even nuns are exempted. That sounds absurd as they are not sexually active. Below is the link:

Fight for your future. Support in any way you can. Live in the land of Hope.  NB: 4th Feb is World Cancer Day.

Good Day, Beautiful People!

Life is difficult, but those difficulties, when we face them squarely, are often the secret keys to growth and joy. -Edward Grinnan

One of my Goals for 2016 is to actively seek joy and happiness even when I face difficulties and challenges along the way. Hope and believe for many many many good days ahead. Joy and happiness seems an easy task and yet many fail to achieve that. 
My brothers and sisters, you will face all kinds of trouble. When you do, think of it as pure joy. Your faith will be put to the test. You know that when that happens it will produce in you the strength to continue. – James1:2-3 (NIVR)

Consider it a sheer gift, friends, when tests and challenges come at you from all sides. You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true colors. – James1:2-3 (MSG)

  

Most of us know the meaning of joy and happiness so the reason I wrote definition is purely to revisit and ponder upon the words. As well as for the benefit of others who sadly never able to find joy and happiness yet.

Joy is a state of mind and an orientation of the heart. It is a settled state of contentment, confidence and hope. It is something or someone that provides a source of happiness. – Theopedia 

Webster’s dictionary definition: 1) to experience great pleasure or delight : REJOICE, 2) the emotion evoked by well-being, success, or good fortune or by the prospect of possessing what one desires: DELIGHT. 

Hebrew dictionary definition: 8057. simchah, sim-khaw’; from H8056 blithesomeness or glee, (religious or festival):– X exceeding (-ly), gladness, joy (-fulness), mirth, pleasure, rejoice (-ing). 

Greek dictionary definition: 5479. chara, khar-ah’; from G5463; cheerfulness, i.e., calm delight:–gladness, X greatly, (X be exceeding) joy (-ful, -fully, -fulness, -ous).

 Joy depends the internal factors, something deep within while Happiness depends on external factors. 

Definition of Happiness is a state of well-being characterized by emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy sense of well-being, joy, or contentment. Happiness is that feeling that comes over you when you know life is good and you can’t help but smile. It’s the opposite of sadness. When people are successful, or safe, or lucky, they feel happiness. The “pursuit of happiness” is something this country is based on, and different people feel happiness for different reasons. Whenever doing something causes happiness, people usually want to do more of it. No one ever complained about feeling too much happiness. -Vocabulary.com
  

You may think all these are so cliche. But at the end of the day, week, month, year and life, you still have to face you in the mirror and honestly ask yourself what you really really want short term and long term. You owe it to yourself to find real happiness because you are worth it. Happiness is a form of courage. When you express YES to happiness means learning to say NO to  the things and people that stress you out.  Choose to respect yourself enough to walk away from anything that no longer serve you, grow you or make you HAPPY. The wise Mandy Hale affirmed that “Happiness starts with you. Not with your relationship, your friends or your job. But with you.” 

   

  
This is a research done by Harvard lessons from the longest study on Happiness that may give you some insight.

   
    
 

  

   
    
 

Hope this help someone today. As for me you know what I am going to pursue.
