Focus On The Loyal People

Your life will get ever smaller if you keep count on the number of people leaving you. But if you give your attention to the loyal people who stayed, you will realize that you’ve created more space for trust, joy and love in your life.Dodinsky

Be Gentle With Yourself

If you’re struggling, you deserve to make self-care a priority. Whether that means lying in bed all day, eating comfort food, crying, sleeping, rescheduling plans, finding an escape through a good book, watching your favorite tv show, or doing nothing at all — give yourself permission to put your healing first. Quiet the voice telling you to do more and be more, and today, whatever you do, let it be enough. Feel your feelings, breathe, and be gentle with yourself. Acknowledge that you’re doing the best you can to cope and survive. And trust that during this time of struggle, it’s enough.   —  Daniell Koepke

Expel Stress From Your Being

That stress you’ve placed upon your shoulders is going to crush you. Get rid of it. You don’t need to be perfect. You don’t need to have it all together. You don’t need to please everyone. Place that heavy burden on the ground. Throw it into the sea. Expel it from your being. You will be lighter in mind, body, and soul. Say NO without explanation. — Unknown

You Can Start Over Again

You can start over again! Don’t even think about quitting now! It is easy to replay in your mind how things did not work, how much you lost, what you are going through, how angry you are. There is no amount of conversation or magic that is going to wipe the slate clean. You are wasting valuable time and energy that could be used to regain a new normal and start another version of your life. Even though you are hurt and you may be feeling down — stop kicking yourself! Face what has happened. Make the decision to start over again. — Les Brown

Book Review : In The Garden of Happiness


Carolyn Bolton, the writer

I cannot say enough about the delight that is wrapped in this beautiful little gift book: “IN THE GARDEN OF HAPPINESS“.

When Dodinsky first published “In the Garden of Thoughts” I was an instant devotee. Lyrically beautiful thoughts about life, presented with charming original artwork. It is my very favorite gift for others, for any and all occasions and for individuals of all ages.

Now, “In the Garden of Happiness” has raised my delight another octave.

There is something so magical about the way Dodinsky captures a profound thought in a truly remarkably new way, with words that reach around your heart and your spirit inciting smiles of delight – as well as moments of thoughtful reflection. The philosophical concepts and the whimsical artwork truly make this book a jewel.

This jewel has facets that make it perfect for youth in their tweens … and teenagers as well. It catches the light of the soul from a slightly different angle for seniors who might be finding themselves in the twilight of their lives, with all their memories and life experiences. AND there are facets that shine in a profoundly magnificent way for people of all ages and all situations in between.

I love how I can pick up this little jewel of a book when I only have a quick minute – and find a message that brings hope to my heart and a smile to my lips. Off I go! Remembering that happiness is a choice. first look

I love how I can pick up this little book in the quiet of the day, when I am focused on reflection, and find a message that sets me upon a path of contemplation so much deeper than my mere cursory readings of the same page … and how it results in me finding new truths about life and choice, happiness and intention.

Dodinsky presents myriad facts of happiness, perfectly chosen and artfully brilliant with light that reaches me deeply – and helps me shine to the world as I walk through my day.

Christmas gift? Wedding gift? Graduation gift? Get well gift? Just because I’m thinking of you gift? Gift for that special person you love? For your child or grandchild? Oh my … the list goes on and on. I sincerely would gift this magnificent book – “In the Garden of Happiness” – to almost anyone for any occasion.

Of course, I made to sure get myself a copy first! And I cherish it.
