Happiness is not about luck, it is about how you perceive the world around you. I grew up thinking I was Chinese, then one day discovered that I was part Irish. Go figure on my Mother’s side, Did that change who I was, no, for some reason, I have always just said, when asked, I’m Chinese. Interestingly, come March 17, I want to wear green, and I feel a kinship for all that is Ireland. (Irish)
The PL teaching for the 17th . is “The things that happen in our lives are neither good or bad. It is our perspective that determine whether the outcome is good or unfortunate.”
When I wrote my virtual blog earlier, http://virtualluna.blogspot.ca/ I wrote about weddings, love, partnerships, it took me on a trip down memory lane.
Later in the day I spoke with a special lady who told me of a beautiful relationship she had, and how it had ended when her partner passed away.
Love is such a beautiful emotion, when there is true love, I am a believer that life is and will always hold that love in a very special part of who we are. A good friendship never really dies, it fades away, but the joy of that friendship will live in our hearts for a long time.
I agree, some people are just not meant to be lovers, or married, but at one time they shared a very special bond, and that memory, that experience, will always be part of their chemistry, (makeup).it will form who they are in the present. We all know the expression, “it is better to have loved and lost, then to never have loved at all”.
What happens when we fall in love, and what goes wrong, who really knows. But when the happiness and joy of being together is no longer there, When you no longer can share your heart willingly, then it is time to let go and move on. Love is a blessing, it is a gift, not a chain that binds.
So today, while the leprechaun play, and the fiddler has us dancing, hold out your hand and clasp the friends you care about … recognize and appreciate that this is a day to be happy that they are in you life.
“May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face
And the rains fall soft upon your fields”
“and until we meet again may God hold you in the
palm of his hand.”
I truly love each and every one of you…
