Uplifted + Have a Blissful Weekend!

Hello, my dears. Got to say I missed you all. My friend Elena asked me the other day. How do you forgive that? How did you survive that?
So today's quote is: "Didn't know I had a choice..."

No one can depress you. No one can make you anxious. No one can hurt your feelings. No one can make you anything other than what you allow inside. 
Dr. Wayne W. Dyer.
                          
Anytime someone is trying to break my spirit down, I just remember this quote. It really does help me to get back on track emotionally.
Tomorrow I'll go shopping and maybe I'll buy a Smiley Face T-shirt and a pair of high heels.
                                                          
Life is good after all!

My lovelies, hope you have a happy Easter weekend! xx

Skies are blue...what a wonderful world? Every time I feel sad or mad, I surround myself with beautiful things. One is looking at photos til I feel good again. I buy magazines with lots of photos. I look at sites with heavy visuals. I felt good looking at your wonderful photos now.

Nancy said...

I'm sorry that someone is trying to make you feel anything other than happy, joyful, grateful or self-confident. I feel sorry for these people. They obviously have some deep-seeded problems of their own.

Your photos are gorgeous. Go get that hug and know we all think you are marvelous. :)

Sandra said...

that quote is so true. sorry you are having something in your life that needs you to forgive, that is a hard thing to do but is healthy if we can. your photos are beautiful and my very favorite of this collection of blue skies is the middle one with all the benches. love it. and thanks for my hug and here is one for you.

"just want to share a best friend hug" Oh Betty my dear...isn't the internet a marvel? I have never met you in person and yet I feel I know you...I may never get the honor of shaking your hand of hugging you but each time we "meet" I have a little bit of a brighter smile than when I got here. I so hope you're going to have a wonderful weekend to rejuvenate and find a moment of bliss.
Your pictures are beautiful as always. You have the most beautiful spirit.
Hugs and smiles to you today my friend!

Those sky shots are sensational! And although we're on opposite sides of the globe, the sky - especially the clouds - is the same!

Have a great Easter break, my friend!

Love your cloud picture, and your quiet harbors, and hope that you maintain a quiet harbor in spite of the storm.

Mike said...

I love the variety of shots!

KrippledWarrior said...

And a very Happy Easter to you, pretty lady. I have always been a proponent of not letting the opinion of others be more important to me than my own. I think the current pop culture term for that is DRAMA. Love your pics, your thoughts, your blog and your style. Talk to you soon,
Kurt

Ms.Wasteland said...

I'm sorry you're dealing with negativity in your life right now.

This resonates with me "There is a story behind everything, behind every person..." It's something I've often said/thought myself and it makes reading blogs so interesting, too.

Hope you're enjoying the weekend.

Anonymous said...

Adorable photos, and great blog.

Life is good!!

Randy said...

These photos do put a smile on my face. I saw something over the weekend that I want to try and live by everyday. It read " Today I will be as happy as a little bird with a French Fry."

StarTraci said...

How beautiful are the pics but so much more so are you! I have missed you and am so pleased to peek back by and find Comments On so I may send love. You are uplifted and always remember that you literally have friends everywhere and therefore you are never alone.

Awww, Betty. It sounds like you've been through a rough time. Stunning photos! I still have that top one (or one very similar) as my desktop background at my work.
