Something to Smile About

SmileDo you always NEED something to smile about or does a smile come naturally, just happen without a great deal of thought or reason behind it? Perhaps you wake up in the morning and smile even before your feet hit the floor. Ever ask yourself “Why?”

When someone smiles at you, how does it make you feel? Flirtatious? Warm? Do you wonder why that person is smiling? All kinds of thoughts can possibly fleet through your mind often depending on your mood at the time. If a smile is taken for the right intent, it can surely make a cloudy day full of sunshine.

The beauty of a smile: blazes, amazes, teases, pleases, warms, never harms, satisfies, gratifies, an ever burning flame of love, hope, desire! That’s something to smile about!

Awakenings: Awkward Moments

See on Scoop.itAwakenings: America & Beyond

Have you ever found yourself in a totally awkward, meaning AWKWARD!, moment—that moment when ‘you wished you could wish‘ yourself back in time?  Wiggle your nose and vanish to a new location, new place in time? Blink your eyes and the entire event simply disappear in a flash? Such moments happen all the time usually when completely unexpected to some folks, of course, more than others.

Today you get to celebrate all of those moments you once wished at the time the ground would simply open up and swallow them to oblivion. Why? Because…

Today is…National Awkward Moments Day

Sharla Shults‘s insight:
Dare to share? There IS a comment section! What is your most awkward moment?

For me, it has to be when I was still a classroom teacher. It was on a day, of course, when the Assistant Principal entered my room for an unannounced observation. He quietly took a seat and almost fell out of the chair when I calmly instructed the students to take out their ‘workshits!’ OOPS! I meant to say worksheets! AW-w-w-wKWARD!

If Pets Had Thumbs

Cats-and-Dogs-Had-Opposable-Thumbs-Day1Have you ever thought about one fact that sets man apart from many other species on the planet is an opposable thumb? It allows us to do many things that other creatures can’t do. If you have ever injured your thumb, you have had a first hand experience as to what an important role that digit plays on the human hand.

Now imagine what it would be like if your pet had thumbs. Do you get a clear image of your pet with thumbs? Are you seeing your pet doing things with his/her new thumb? If so, your mind is in spirit with today.

Have a HAPPY ‘If Pets Had Thumbs Day’!

Note: If you have a pet monkey, you already know what it would be like for your pet to have thumbs. Hee-hee…

Thumbs

Here is a Thumbs Up for all pets today!

There is more going on today as always. Visit Awakenings for National Anthem Day!

Pet Pamperings

Today is…

Love Your Pet Day!
pawPrints
My name is Foxie. Do you have a treat for me?
Did you know that most households in the United States have at least
one pet? Approximately 39% of US households own at least one dog and
33% own at least one cat. Pets provide wonderful companionship and can
actually help decrease blood pressure and stress.

A little more to the right pur-r-r-r-r-eaze!

Today is the official day for pampering your pet with a little extra love and affection to show him or her just how much you care. Give your pet a favorite treat (maybe even 2, 3, more…), provide conversation with music in the background, buy your furry friend a new outfit (dogs, yes, cats, um-m-m-m?), groom away the tangled fur with extra attention around the ears, treat the ‘little’ guy or gal like a celebrity!

Thank you for my fur-tastic bed!

So whether you have a cat, dog, hamster, rabbit, bird, reptile, or goldfish, or any combination shower them all with love and affection today! Just curl up next to one (or more if you did not stop with only one) and make this an arf-fully, purr-fectly wonderful day.

How can it get any better than this?
 
Smile! Happy Love Your Pet
Day!

Cattitude Tip #5

There is never a wasted moment when you are a cat. I know because…

I am smart, not lazy. . .
just simply devoted to relaxation.

Cat_RelaxingpawPrintsI love to hunt. That’s when I am the cutest.
A cat must do what a cat must do.

Cat-on-HuntpawPrintsI love hide ‘n’ seek.
I must hide, you must seek!

Cat-in-LeavespawPrintsWhen I am hungry, I am HUNGRY!
There are certain foods I DON’T like.

Cat-YuckpawPrintsWHAT?
What do you mean you are out of cat caviar?

Cat-Shocker

pawPrintsYou love music. I love music.
Keep it down, will ya’.

Cat-QuietpawPrintsSee, there are no moments wasted.
I relax, hunt, hide, eat, get excited and do my best to keep peace.
Whew! Am I a busy cat!

Isn’t it time for my brushing?

Singing in the Shower

Can you imagine a world without music? It would be a world void of colors and textures, thus soulless. There would be no form, no expression. Thank goodness we have music or life would be a total bore, empty, useless. Music is all around us with melodies whispering in the wind, carrying along the harmonies of the songbirds. Each note captures the human heart penetrating deep into the soul leading to some of the best compositions imaginable. All you have to do is enjoy the catipoflife, listen to life’s songs! That includes singing in the shower!

Singing_in_the_ShowerDo you sing in the shower giving yourself top billing on Broadway? Are you a rock star or a diva? Did you know singing in the shower has become a widespread phenomenon?

Think about it. You can be what you want to be, as good as you want to be, an overnight sensation if you like since something magical happens when you sing in the shower. Have you ever noticed you actually sound better singing in the shower vs. out of the shower? For some reason, angelic pitch-perfect harmonies echo around the shower walls rather than bouncing through midair resounding of a croaking frog. That is the truth and there is a science of music to prove it!

That is not the only thing magical about the shower either…

Time for a shower…

MUSIC_animated

 FaLaLa…TraLaLa Boom De Ay…Boom Boom ShaBoom…NaNa-Nana-NaNa…everything before and after, as well as everything in between. Where would we be without music on the scene? Can you imagine a world without melody? Even the sounds of nature carry musical tones in harmony. Where there is sound there is rhythm from the clanging cogs of wheels definitely not ‘in pitch’ to Brahms’s Lullaby so relaxing one could sleep in a ditch. It keeps the sane man sane and lifts up the insane. MORE @awakenings about the beginnings of music…
