“Cheerfulness as a Life Power” by Orison Swett Marden, written in 1899, is downloadable for free from http://gutenberg.org, and is all about the importance of cheer, optimism, a glad heart, smiling, laughter, singing, and the positive effect all forms of mirth and merriment have on human health.
We can learn to balance our spiritual practices with our worldly responsibilities, enjoying the fruits within ourselves and sharing our gifts with others.
Many thanks to those featured today, for the work they do to better our world!!!
Our focus dictates what we see, which reinforces our focus, further confining the possibility of what we will see.
May you be blessed by these offerings reminding us of the beauty, wonder, and sacredness in the world around us and within us.
Note: Even if you are not the blogger of the work you'd like to suggest, but have noticed someone's work that you think should be included in a Celebration of What's Right in the World, --empowering people and spirit--please point out the work to us.
Blessings, dear ones,
