Only allow good memories in your heart.

Bad memories may serve as many good reminders for not repeating bad/unnecessary histories in life; but if we were to let them rule the head for too long, we might find difficulties in taking the next step in creating another good memory.

I am glad to be able to read this post once again to remind myself of this point.

A big THANK YOU to this lovely soul for sharing her enlightening thoughts with us in her lovely blog ‘THE BEAUTY OF WORDS’.

Words are only alphabets, we are the ones choosing to turn them into a beauty or a beast.

Have a great week ahead with many opportunities to create more good memories to add to our happy lists.

Till then,

Cheers! ☺

The beauty of words.

Only allow good memories in your heart

In reality you can`t really get rid of bad memories but at least you will be able to accept that they occurred, look at the positive side of them and allow the good parts to stay in your heart. That`s the point where you`re in peace with yourself. Sharing memories with others also gives you enlightenment and makes you feel “lighter” and even happy. Allow it to happen and you`ll notice that also sharing makes you happier. Don`t let bad memories stay in your heart. They may become worse than they were before and may have bad effects in your life. In reality not all memories do have a positive outcome, so for those that don`t, remember that you have to keep looking ahead instead of sticking in the past, look forward and focus on the positive experiences.

The One Who Says “Ho Ho Ho”…

Santa Claus, also known as Saint Nicholas or simply “Santa”, is a figure with legendary, historical and folkloric origins who, in many Western cultures, is said to bring gifts to the homes of the good children on 24 December, the night before Christmas Day.

Santa Claus is generally depicted as a portly, joyous, white-bearded man—sometimes with spectacles—wearing a red coat with white collar and cuffs, white-cuffed red trousers, and black leather belt and boots and who carries a bag full of gifts for children.

Saint Nicholas of Myra was a 4th-century Greek Christian bishop of Myra in Turkey and was famous for his generous gifts to the poor, in particular presenting the three impoverished daughters of a pious Christian with dowries so that they would not have to become prostitutes.

During the Middle Ages, often on the evening before his name day of 6 December, children were bestowed gifts in his honour.

This date was earlier than the original day of gifts for the children, which moved in the course of the Reformation and its opposition to the veneration of saints in many countries on the 24 and 25 December.

The custom of gifting of children at Christmas has been propagated by Martin Luther as an alternative to the previous very popular gift custom on St. Nicholas, to focus the interest of the children to Christ instead of the veneration of saints.

The remains of Saint Nicholas are in Italy.

In 1087, the Italian city of Bari mounted an expedition to locate the tomb of the Saint.

The spirit of Christmas is the spirit of love and of generosity and of goodness.

It illuminates the picture window of the soul, and we look out upon the world’s busy life

and become more interested in people than in things.

~ Thomas S. Monson

Is Santa Claus real?

I don’t really know since I don’t live in a house with a chimney.

But there is one thing that we all cannot deny.

The generosity spread by a real man who is known as Saint Nicolas.


Till then,

Cheers & TTFN ~


To All Lovely Souls Out There…

Did You Know?

The idea of a wife for Santa Claus may have been the creation of American authors, beginning in the mid-19th century.

In 1889, the poet Katherine Lee Bates popularized Mrs. Claus in the poem “Goody Santa Claus on a Sleigh Ride”.
