COVID -19 is back --Highton Seniors is in lockdown until further notice.
Some thoughts to help us get through COVID-19 lockdowns
Look for something positive in every day, even if some days you have to look a little harder
Just in case you have forgotten today.You matter. You are loved. You are worthy. You are magical.
We don't have to agree on everything to be kind to one another.
Smile for no reason.
Be teachable, you are not always right.
I have learnt silence from the talkative, tolerance from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind
Communication is one thing, but your tone while communicating is everything.
When you can't control what is happening, challenge yourself to control the way you respond and to what's happening.
That's where the power is.

Apparently one of the symptoms of COVID -19
is having no taste
Looking back on all my exes-
I think Iv'e been infected for years
This happened. A friend had his 2nd dose of the vaccine at the Vaccination Centre, after which he began to have blurred vision on the way home. When he called the Vaccination Centre for advice to ask if he should go to hospital or see a doctor. He was told to return immediately to the Vaccination Centre to pick up his glasses.
OPEN YOUR EYES AND HEARTS TO NEW WAYS
HEALTHY EATING IS IMPORTANT SO TOO IS HEALTHY THINKING
Give yourself 'mind snacks' that help you in the day...not hinder you.
If you are pigging out on fatty, self depreciating thoughts, throw them in the mental chook bucket as they come to peck you.
Feed your mind with plenty of positive lightweight happy thoughts.
Author Rachael Treasure
Take life by the throat and shake the living life out of it .
Take charge of your life, and work at making each day better than the one before ....
it is up to you.
Smile, no matter how much you dislike the job you have to do..
Always look for the best in people .
Take a problem and turn it into an asset.
Author Sara Henderson July 1995
SHE'LL BE RIGHT JACK
He lived way out in the outback
Not far from the Birdsville Track
Nothing seemed to worry him
They called him "She'll be right Jack"
One year he lost a thousand sheep
When the rain was really slack
When confronted by his banker
His reply was "She'll be right Jack"
His wife ran off with a stockman
Almost took the shirt off his back
When the boys in the pub said sorry
He simply said "She'll be right Jack"
Well one day our man went to Heaven
To our earth he would never come back
As he firmly shook hands with St Peter
He grinned and said "She'll be right Jack"

WHAT IS LIFE?
Life is opportunity, benefit from it
Life is beauty, admire it
Life is bliss, taste it
Life is a dream, realise it
Life is a challenge, meet it
Life is a duty, complete it
Life is a game, play it
Life is a promise, fulfil it
Life is sorrow, overcome it
Life is a song, sing it
ACCEPT THINGS AS THEY ARE
We must learn to accept ...
To accept life, and to accept ourselves,
not blindly and not with conceit.
but with a shrug and a smile,
To accept in the end existence
not because it's just or reasonable
or even satisfactory,
but simply and plainly because it is all we've got.
Every day we have plenty of opportunities to get angry, stressed or offended.
But having these negative emotions is giving something outside yourself power over your happiness.
You can choose not to let little things upset you.
This is the beginning of a new day.
I have been given it to use as I will.
I can waste it or use it for good, but what do I do today is important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it.
When tomorrow comes this day will be gone forever, leaving in its place something I have traded for it.
I want it to be good and not evil, gain and not loss, success and not failure, in order that I shall not regret the price I have paid for it.
LET'S ENJOY LIFE
Happiness is always there within reach no matter how long it lasts.
Let's enjoy life and don't live a complicated life.
Life is too short.
Work as if it is your first day .
Forgive as soon as possible.
Love without boundaries.
Laugh without control and never stop smiling.
Please think of those with cancer or any other illness..
5 Minutes is all it takes to.....
Leave an anonymous thank-you note on a colleague's desk.
Return a shopping trolley to the trolley bay and save someone's car from being dented.
Make someone a cup of tea and start a conversation.
Praise a shop assistant and wish them a happy day.
Collect your neighbour's garbage bin.
Share a joke with someone who needs a laugh.
You will find that when you look back on life, the moments that stand out are the moments when you have done things for others.
The purpose of life is not to be happy but to matter, to be productive, to be useful, to have it make some difference that you have lived.
SLOW DOWN THERAPY
In a hurry? Of course you are.
Remember a happy peaceful time in your past. Rest there.
Each moment has a richness that takes a lifetime to savor.
Allow yourself time to be lazy and productive.
Rest isn't a luxury, it's a necessity.
