Joy, self-love

Hey YOU! Be Happy! YOU Are AMAZING ♥ just the way you are ♥

Quote from Ariana Grande “Be happy with being you. Love your flaws. Own your quirks”.

Just be YOU! It really can’t get any simpler than this. We are supposed to be who we ARE!

I don’t even consider things as flaws, but hey if you want to call them that, who am I to stop you. 🙂

I am so excited to see people awakening all around me just being THEM! It is so liberating. I hope you join us on the 𝐹𝓇𝑒𝑒𝒹❀𝓂 𝒯𝓇𝒶𝒾𝓃! Full speed ahead 🙂

Be Free. Be YOU!

Love to all!

Maggie

JOY Forever

Picture of a girl hanging upside down with a quote saying “A thing of beauty is a JOY forever” John Keats

I truly believe that JOY is our birthright. I believe that we are on earth to experience JOY and to enJOY being JOYous beings.

One of the easiest ways to access JOY is through beauty and appreciating beauty. It can be as simple as your favorite cup or as big as travelling to an exotic place to see the ocean’s view for the first time.

Beauty is all around us and we can see it when we look. (っ◔◡◔)っ

My friend Teresa texted me this picture today. It’s from about 15 years ago when her kids were little.

I must admit I do not remember this moment so thank goodness for pictures once again, but I just LOVE this picture. It radiates pure JOY and it just lifts my heart and spirit to even look at it.

I say often that JOY is our birthright. JOY is Sweet. JOY is Juicy. And JOY is great for the soul!

There Are NO Mistakes❢ – Worry Not! ♥☮♥

A mistake is just another way of doing things.

Me: Maggie Holbik 🙂

I like to think there are no mistakes. Everything that we experience is just that … an experience. We experience something and then we choose and decide if we wish to experience it again.

I like to think of these ‘experiences’ as gifts to show me what I no longer want in my life or what I want to add more of into my life. Pretty simple right? ♥ And it is. ♥

The least amount of time we spend living with regret or remorse, the more time we have to fast track in the things we want and that bring us more ♥ JOY ♥

I know it is not always easy, especially when we are in fear or emotional pain, but I think by even declaring or understanding this concept, it helps. At least it does for me and I hope it does for you too.

So that’s all for today. Have an amazing day now or if you are reading this in the future. And if you are reading this in the future future and I am no longer in and of this world know that my spirit has your back 🙂

Love to all❢ ♥♥♥

Let Your Love Flow

This is a picture I made with my Christmas tree in the background. I love looking at the Christmas tree and thinking about all of the Love that has surrounded it over the years. Of course, each ornament has significance and makes the tree even more special because of them.

I sometimes just sit and think about many people’s Christmas trees and how they display a lifetime of stages and memories. As I gaze at my own tree, which is right beside me now, I see ornaments given to me by my mother who passed in 1993. I see a few “Baby’s First Christmas”. I see handmade ornaments by my daughter. I see ornaments made each year for Sivanna, my daughter, by her Grandmother by Heart, Joyce. I see many ornaments with special memories….. too many to list.

But what I see most of all, is LOVE. The warmth and glow of the tree and the fire reminds me of that inner and outer glow of Love. We gather in Love, we celebrate in Love and we Rejoice in Love.

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

Every year I host Christmas Eve at my house and this year was spectacular! Everyone had fun and there were smiles and Love all around. I know why though. I know the secret to why it was so wonderful and why it gets better every year…. it’s because we are appreciating it and each other more and more every year and it just makes it more enriched each and every year.

One of my most favorite things to see is the tradition being instilled in my daughter. As we prepare for the occasion she automatically knows to get out the serving platter for the turkey, our special cutting board given to us by Baba, aka Big Audrey (because there is a little Audrey), the fine china and to tidy the bathroom and whatever else we need to do. At these times I smile with my heart and it swells in the knowing that she will one day be fondly sharing memories of times past and of how much Love and JOY were in them. And the she too will be hosting the next generation with Love in her heart too!

Here I am in my kitchen with ‘the cutting’ board and my Santa apron given to me also by Baba one yearl

When I am long gone from this world, I would want anyone reading this who knows and loves me and has been a part of these glorious occasions to know how much I Love putting these on and preparing the food with Love for all of you to enJOY. My eyes are leaking as I type this and I am grateful that I can write things like this to express my feelings of JOY and APPRECIATION. I am also grateful for all of you in my life who Love me and show me all the time. I love you all!

Merry Christmas and may you always celebrate with JOY in your heart!

How I See JOY

To me JOY, which is said to be a vibration higher than even LOVE ❤ , is LOVE ❤ expressing itself. That is how I see JOY. It is also why I strive for more JOY in my life every day!

When I think of young children singing, dancing, giggling, and being silly, I think of JOY.

Exuberant children having fun at the beach… being silly.

When I think of a proud parent, I think of JOY expressing itself.

When I think of a couple newly in LOVE, ❤ I think of JOY.

Man holding woman in his arms as she smiles an her hair is tossed from him twirling her around. So in LOVE. JOY

When I think of a couple anticipating the birth of their child, a new life, I think of JOY.

Portrait of lovely future parents during sunset – JOY!

When I think of a hot cup of tea, I think of JOY.

When I think of FREEDOM, I think of JOY.

JOY is amazing. JOY has the power to open our hearts and expand our LOVE. ❤ And I LOVE ❤ that because we are LOVE. ❤ We were born in and from LOVE ❤ and we will return to LOVE. ❤

JOY also enhances our immune system, stimulates our creativity and has a positive impact on everyone around us and the world. JOY is an emotion that can transform fear also. JOY can free one from their own pain and suffering. JOY can help FREE oneself from limiting beliefs and ideals. When you strive for JOY you can never go wrong.

Find JOY in the simple things. Seek JOY and it will find you.

I have written many helpful posts about JOY and you can access them here:

JOY & Gratitude

Joy is the simplest form of gratitude… JOY – my favorite word. 🙂

I love this quote. It is so simple and true. When we experience JOY we immediately feel gratitude. They go hand in hand.

This is another reason why I am always encouraging others to find JOY, to seek JOY, to be JOY.

The more JOY, the more gratitude and like attracts like so go for more!

Thankful this Thanksgiving

This morning I walked into the kitchen and saw my Turkey platter in the dish rack and the sun shining behind it. How beautiful. I reflected upon the lovely Thanksgiving dinner we had here yesterday. It is my favorite meal and occasion to prepare for.

My Big Turkey Platter

Every holiday that we have turkey, I bring out this platter. I love using our special dishes and such to make the occasion even more festive and enJOYable. My sister-in-law loved this platter so much, I also found one for her 🙂 I love thrift shopping as many of you know. So much JOY!

We make so many happy memories at these get togethers and it is just so good to spend time together and to appreciate each other and to honor who we are and where we came from… that is family. Not everyone makes every holiday but that is okay, we celebrate and enJOY with whoever is able to attend. And sometimes most of us are there. I am so grateful to still have all my siblings here on earth.

As with most families we get some traditions happening. Big Audrey (because there is a little Audrey) or Baba as we call her, always carves the turkey. She is in her 80’s and still gets up there and does this. We all love it. Baba always brings me a useful gift even though I tell her she need not bring anything. One year it was an amazing turkey cutting board with spikes to hold the turkey and a little run way for the juices. Awesome. We now use it on every turkey occasion. Bubba and I both like to thrift shop hee hee. We have many happy discussions around this and often bump into each other our favorite stores. It makes me smile every time. 🙂 🙂 🙂

The cutting board from Baba.. think how many memories have been made through its use. Beautiful!

This year Baba brought an apron to wear and to leave for me when finished. Perfect! One can never have enough aprons, especially with many hands helping in the kitchen. 🙂

The apron Audrey brought me. One of many throughout the years.

With the cooler temperature at this time of year, it makes it even cozier and warming. We even had snow on the ground yesterday. 🙂

Our meal was wonderful of course. We had many laughs, smiles and JOYS. We listened to Uncle John tell his many jokes and I could tell that each one of us appreciated them more than ever. We all know that life is a cycle and what we have now, we will not always, so everything is more enhanced and appreciated.

I am grateful that my family, like myself, gets more and more appreciative of moments like this. In fact, these moments are sacred to me (tears streaming down my face as I type this). I watch and observe that as we get older it means more and I watch and know that my daughter and the youth will one day cherish these times more than any other. These will be the memories that stand out for them.

At the end of the evening, Don, Bubba and myself chatted about how these ARE the most important things in life. There is nothing better than being together at times like this, sharing food, laughter, and memories, with people who are comfortable to share of themselves… to tease, to laugh and to most of all LOVE.

One of the reasons I blog is so that I can share my feelings but also to record these moments for future enJOYment for my offspring and for whoever happens upon them. I hope they will be inspired and will use my sharing and writing to inspire them to have more JOY in their life and to spread more JOY in the world. It always starts around your own kitchen table first. 🙂
