Shanshine! All in good time!

Happy is the person who distils the essence and takes what they need from the vast sea of knowledge. - Yip Pei Shan

I attended a video viewing yesterday of a spiritual conference that was held about a month ago in Minneapolis.

Here are some of my thoughts on the nuggets of wisdom shared during the conference.

  1. The overriding theme was ‘All in good time’.  My understanding here is a good time is different for everyone of us.  What’s a good time for you may not be a good time for another, and vice versa.  A good time here is referring to our thoughts and actions leading to various consequences of our choice.  Simply put, a cause-and-effect phenomenon.  You reap what you sow.
  2. Playing with the word ‘good’, we can come up with the word ‘God’ by omitting an “o”.  Now I see how ‘God is Good’ sounds and looks so good.
  3. Fill our hearts and minds with love and gratefulness to the brim.  Leave no room for negativities and escape the sea of toxins, which kill the sweet goodness in our lives.
  4. The voice and light of God sustains the melody of life.

I see some positive attributes appearing here – spirituality lends strength to people, love, responsibility, and gratitude.  Wonderful!

International Happiness Day!!!: The Shanshine way!

Shanshine On!  Start Having Action Now, Start Having Infinite New 3nergy!

Get together with loved ones for a International Happiness Day celebration! (^.^)

It is quality rather than quantity that matters. – Seneca

I am a firm believer and practitioner in quality time, especially concerning the things and people that matter most to me.  I am going for quality time with a few of my favourite people today.  What about you?  Unleash your creativity, permit yourself to be Happy, Happier, Happiest!  Not just for today, but for many many many days to come!

For those following the VIA strengths alignment, this action is in line with Loving and Allowing Oneself to Be Loved.

A Happy you, a Happy life, a Happy work, a Happy family, all this can be yours only if you choose to.

A very Happy International Happiness Day to you!!!

Shanshine smiles and cari saluti!

How did yesterday’s actions go for me?

I am very pleased that my once conscious incompetent actions have evolved into unconscious competent actions!

I was so thrilled and enlightened that I wrote Focus on the positive: It works! A real life story immediately after I had the revelation!  I still remember Napoleon Hill’s words in Think and Grow Rich, along the lines of we cannot afford the luxury of a single negative thought.  I would like to add,

We have the luxury of infinite positive thoughts! – Yip Pei Shan

Notice the optimistic thinking in action!  Did it take a lot of time and effort to do so?  No.  Initially, it took a lot of time and effort.  With continuous usage and a laser beam focus, it became a habit.  Once it becomes a habit, it’s ingrained into your system.  Need support with this?  Contact me.

9 days to the International Happiness Day: The Shanshine way!

Shanshine On!  Start Having Action Now, Start Having Infinite New 3nergy!

Be a Shanshine Smiler!  Give everyone you meet a Shanshine smile.  Share your smiles by uploading your Shanshine smiling photo on Facebook and tag me! (^.^)

A smile is a heart-to-heart communication: it emanates from your heart, radiates on your face, and lights up the hearts of others – Yip Pei Shan

Have you ever noticed how people who smile and laugh a lot are so attractive?  A smile is a terrific icebreaker, and it does not take much effort to do so!  Smiling possibly enhances our strengths in Social Intelligence/Personal Intelligence/Emotional Intelligence; Kindness and Generosity; Loving and Allowing Oneself to Be Loved; and Playfulness and Humour.

Smile!  Are you shining yet?

How did yesterday’s actions go for me?

I had a whale of a time laughing with a video of  my friend’s standup comedy performance!  A good friend encountered a nasty client yesterday, so we shared some laughs over Russell Peter and a funny joke!  Go for the funnies!

12 days to the International Happiness Day: The Shanshine way!

Shanshine On!  Start Having Action Now, Start Having Infinite New 3nergy!

Tell someone special “I love you!” (^.^)

These three little words exemplify your courage, sincerity and commitment to yourself, your character, your life and the people that you say this to.

These are in line with capitalising on strengths such as social/personal/emotional intelligence (how you express it is an art and science in itself); bravery (it takes courage!); genuineness (by being true to yourself and the one you express to); and loving and allowing oneself to be loved.

It can be anyone that you love – your family, your husband, your wife, your children, your friends, your partner, etc.  Give it a go!

How did yesterday’s actions go for me?

I did not get the number of an attractive stranger because the most attractive (not to say the best) are my friends already!!!  Nevertheless, I shared the meaning and value with my friends.  It was wonderful seeing stunned and passionate reactions when I shared!  I encourage you to use these actions as often as you wish.  It is not for one day, but for many more days in your life to act upon.

Start Having Action Now, Start Having Infinite New 3nergy!

To my loved ones, I love you!
