Photo Challenge – Cee’s Which Way

This is my first of joining a photo challenge, and i hope the firsts of the many. The subject of the challenge is to capture photos which depict direction, or anything that relates to it. May it be streets, bridges, stairs, road signs, lanes, aisles, and many many more.

I have browsed through my archives, and found some of them:

DFS_JBR 039

 

Let gratitude be the pillow upon which you kneel to say your nightly prayer.

Maya Angelou


When we appreciate all that we have in life, our egos step out of the way, inviting even greater abundance into our lives.
Practicing gratitude for our lives – for the air we breathe, for our magnificent bodies, and the beauty of being alive – is a wonderful place to start. From this, we can expand outward, like ripples in a still pond, appreciating everything and everyone we encounter and those who touch our lives as well.
What are you thankful for today?

Happyness Quote Day 19 – Power

All the powers in the universe are already ours.

Swami Vivekananda


As we get connected to our natural expression of strength—we become power-full, rather than having power-over. We call in the unconquerable power of the oceans and the wind. Within, we find the power of a seed to sprout and a heart to heal. As we connect and activate this universal power personally, we experience more confidence, greater self-esteem, and a quiet trust that allows us to meet any demand or situation that life may send our way.
