May flowers always line your path and sunshine light your day. May songbirds serenade you every step along the way. May a rainbow run beside you in a sky that’s always blue. And may happiness fill your heart each day your whole life through. (Irish Blessing)
If you can’t tell by now I spend a lot of time reading and am somewhat obsessed with poetic phrases. Here is a fun little gem (or…pot of gold?) I came across — decided it would pair perfectly with my very green ensemble, in honor of St. Patrick’s Day. Better late than never, right?!!
I have really enjoyed reading the “Irish Blessings”, as I find them to be particularly wise, to to the point, and positive. Sometimes we need to stop and take a second to appreciate the beauty in simplicity.
I am not a religious person, so to speak, but I certainly believe in karma and blessings, and try to take time each day to acknowledge just how lucky I truly am. I have endured waves of negativity, doubt and even depression many times, but found that the more challenges life throws at me, the more I’ve been able to adopt an optimistic outlook, overall. At the end of the day, we are dealt the cards we are dealt, can only control so much, and beyond that, life is whatever you choose to make of it.
So here is to happiness for all and loads of four leaf clovers!
