 A Smile In Your Heart Something happened this morning that made my heart smile. It was a splendid way to start the day.

A smile in your heart is vastly different from a smile on your face. It is deeper, more profound, and touches both the giver and the receiver in ways you may not have noticed before.

A smile in your heart makes your body quiver with delight. It whispers to your cells and encourages them to move towards the perfection they are always aspiring to be – when we are not interfering with our own natural healing – by telling them things that are just not true.

A smile in your heart lightens your burdens, restores your soul and quiets the endless chatter. It awakens memories of truth lying dormant inside. And it gently tickles you in all the right places, sometimes causing spontaneous laughter and mirth.

So, my dear friends, what kind word or charming deed could you say or do today that would bring a smile to someone else’s heart as well as your own?

Take care, have a beautiful day and KEEP SMILING.

 Remember To Be Here NowFor today’s Inspirational Words…

The next person, place or thing you encounter may be the most important in your life so far. Will you remember to

BE HERE NOW?

Not thinking of all of the things you have to do today.
Not dwelling on the unpleasant encounter you had with your friend, or spouse or child this morning.
Not worrying about your next bill to pay or how you’re going to pay it.
Not grieving over the loss of someone who may actually be trying to reach you,
if you were silent and peaceful and present.
Not fuming to yourself about the the guy who cut you off in traffic this morning.
Not stressing about your upcoming job performance review.
Not imagining the worse case scenario of your visit with your dentist or
doctor later this week.

And the list goes on and on and on …

Life is short.
It can end in a moment and it has for some people.
A moment they were not expecting.

This is your wake up call.

So, I’m asking you again.
Will you remember to BE HERE NOW.
In this moment. It’s yours. It’s got your name on it.
Take it. Make it matter!

Take care and have a beautiful day.
Love and blessings, Veronica

 Its Valentines Day   Remember The LoveIt’s Valentine’s Day – Remember the Love

For a very long time, my favourite day of the year was always Valentine’s Day. It didn’t matter if I was alone on that day or not, I still adored it. Valentine’s day for me is a celebration of love, love in its many forms: romantic love between a man and a woman, the never-ending love of family and dear friends, the enduring love between a parent and child, the abiding love between a human and their beloved pet, love of self and love shared with communities or the world.

In our society we seem to need an excuse to tell people how we feel about them, or show them with tokens of our affection. At Christmas, we exchange gifts and take time away from our busy schedules to be with the people who really matter in our lives. On Valentine’s day we are presented with yet another opportunity to open our hearts and share our souls. The marketplace makes it very easy for us to do that, presenting us with a cornucopia of delicacies and finery, from chocolates, to strawberries and whipped cream, to diamonds, singing teddy bear deliveries, and an abundance of greeting cards with just the right sentiment.

It matters not how you choose to serenade the ones you love on this auspicious occasion, what matters is that you do! Whether it be with a store bought treasure or a simple handmade delight, the form is not important, but the sentiment is! Valentine’s day gives you another opportunity to do something that comes naturally for you, as natural as breathing, and that is to BE love and to GIVE love. It is who you are and it is the only thing that really matters in the end.

And so I wish you a Happy Valentine’s Day.

May LOVE touch your precious heart today in unexpected ways and JOY bless your beautiful soul!

Take care and have a magical day.

Love and blessings, Veronica (veronicahay@telus.net)

 Dont Give Up On Your Miracle!A friend was telling me about a serious medical condition that they were experiencing some time ago which went on for several months. It was truly an awful situation to go through and had inflicted them with much pain and anxiety.  The medical doctors were not able to help her except to make things worse. My heart went out to her just listening to her story and knowing that she had experienced so much anguish deeply saddened me. But then out of the blue, she simply said “And then one morning I woke up and the condition was gone, it had totally disappeared and has never returned since and I know in my heart that it never will”.(And it never has.)

I was overwhelmed with JOY when I heard her say that and filled with wonder once again at the possibility of a “miracle” happening at any moment, in spite of the circumstances one may find oneself in.

It was a matter of “grace”, a true gift and a reminder for me and I hope for you, reading this here, that anything is possible and to never give up believing that things can and often do change for the better in an instant.

I just wanted to share this story with you all here this morning. So, no matter what you may be going through in your own life, emotional turmoil or a physical disorder, know somewhere deep in your heart that there is hope, there is love, there is Joy and it is waiting for you. Never give up believing in the possibility of having your very own miracle. And never give up encouraging others to do the same.

Compassion – A Life Changer
Copyright © by Veronica Hay
 Compassion    A Life Changer

I have been thinking a lot lately about the word “compassion” and how there does not seem to be a lot of it around these days. Judgement is much more prevalent. I think because sometimes when we judge another, it makes us feel temporarily better, like we are smarter or more superior in some way. But judgement never soothes the wounded heart or opens the tender soul the way compassion does. It closes them down, affects our health and the quality of our life. Perhaps many other well intentioned people feel that by being compassionate to others they are allowing or even encouraging them to show weakness, and not be strong enough to rise above life’s challenges. Nothing could be further from the truth.

I am not talking about sympathy or pity as these certainly do not empower anyone. Most people don’t want or need pity, but they certainly do require “love”. We all require love. As I have said many times before, it is quite frankly all that matters in the end. What I am talking about here is the simple joy of human kindness and caring. I am talking about sensitivity, warmth, tenderness, and big heartedness.

And so, I implore you to ask yourself where and with whom you could be more “compassionate today? Where could you reach out, surprise someone who is going through a very difficult time and let them know, that while you may never be able to truly understand or even relate to what they may be going through, your heart goes out to their suffering and turmoil? Please resist the need to fix them or offer any advice that they have not asked you for. Just ensure them that you are holding them in deep compassion, bright light and tender love. And that you are seeing them emerging victorious, however that may look like for them. Remember that sometimes a kind word to someone on their journey can and may even save a life. So, please don’t hold back.

And the person to start with today with this process is YOURSELF! Offer true kindness and compassion to yourself for all you have gone through to get you to where you are now, in this moment, no matter what that may have been.

And so, I would like to take this opportunity to send my deep love and heartfelt compassion out to every single soul who visits this blog. Your strength and courage has served to uplift all of us and moved us forward. I acknowledge each and every one of you individually for coming this far. I treasure your presence here and I salute you. I wish you Godspeed on your journey, my dear and precious friends.

Love and blessings, Veronica

“A meal, however simple, is a moment of intersection. It is at once the most basic, the most fundamental, of our life’s activities, maintaining the life of our bodies. Shared with others, it can be an occasion of joy and communion, uniting people deeply.” ~ Elise Boulding

When I read this quote today, it made me think back on all of the meals I have shared with others. The memories of some of the really special ones will always be with me. Thanksgiving, comes to mind, as well as Christmas turkey dinners, but the ones that are the most memorable, are the simple ones. The ones that were spontaneous, the ones outside in Read the rest of this entry »

I have been writing inspiring poems and stories ever since I can remember.

I recall reading somewhere that a good way to uncover your true purpose in life is to remember the things you did as a child that you enjoyed the most, the things you seemed to do a lot of.

In thinking back to those innocent and seemingly carefree days, I remembered that every afternoon when my mother took a nap, Read the rest of this entry »
