pensées joyeuses le long du chemin de la fontaine…:-)

motto:”Le bonheur est un seul bouquet: confus, léger, fondant, sucré… c’est toute une forêt d’amis qui s’assemblent aux fontaines vertes du bon soleil du bois flambant…”(Paul Éluard)

nous ne sommes pas censés vivre seuls et nous avons besoin les uns des autres – l’amour et l’amitié nous sont aussi essentiels que l’oxygène… nos relations avec eux se divisent en sentiments affectueux ou hostiles, et si nous souhaitons bien vivre, nous devons éliminer les seconds, en établissant autour de nous une ambiance de cordialité, de paix et d’affection… MAIS parfois, c’est difficile ou impossible d’y arriver, en dépit de notre meilleure volonté et nous suscitons antipathie, envie, rancune… même notre gentillesse, amabilité ou générosité peuvent être perçues comme “hypocrite”, quoi faire alors?… être patients et tolérants, car nous ne pouvons pas être sympathiques et plaire à tout le monde… 🙂 nous devons apprendre à discerner, à deviner, à reconnaître, à entrevoir, à choisir les sentiments d’autrui, sans nous laisser “aveuglés” par des préjugés qui nous pousseraient injustement à exclure de notre cercle des personnes intéressantes qui méritent toute notre estime… notre vie ressemble à une balance à plusieurs plateaux et chacun correspond à notre propre univers formé de: l’amour, la famille, les amis, le travail, les distractions, etc…

notre but et objectif: maintenir l’équilibre entre ces “plateaux” et éviter que l’un d’eux entraîne tous les autres et finit par nous perturber… le bonheur est plutôt une attitude de l’esprit qu’on doit chercher dans nos cœurs, pas à l’extérieur… rester optimiste ne nous évite pas les échecs et les erreurs, mais nous aide à les “peser” et les “juger” à leur juste mesure… le passé négatif nous sert de “leçon” et non pas d’obstacle pour mieux vivre dans le présent… si nous nous sentons heureux aujourd’hui, nous pourrions l’être demain, aussi… tout compte fait, vivre mieux n’est pas vraiment la mer à boire et parfois, il suffit d’avoir l’espoir, être positif, voir le monde différemment… oui, notre vie a “un prix” qui ne dépend pas entièrement de nous, apprendre le bonheur c’est aussi refuser le pessimisme et observer les événements ou les circonstances d’un point de vue “critique” et non pas “catastrophique”… efforçons-nous d’être plus joyeux qu’hier, gardons toujours un peu d’humour, sourions… si nous faisons un bilan de nos journées, nous y trouverons certainement au moins une heure de détente, d’amusement et de joie… 🙂

cheerful thoughts along the pathway of the fountain… 🙂

motto:’Happiness is a single bouquet: vague, soft, touching, sweet… it’s a whole forest of friends who get together in front of the green fountains of the mild sun and of the blazing woods…'(Paul Éluard)

we are not meant to live alone and we do need each other – love and friendship are as vital as oxygen… our relationships with them are divided into hostile or affectionate feelings, and if we want to live well, we must remove the second ones by setting around us an atmosphere of cordiality, peace and affection… BUT sometimes it is difficult or impossible to get there, despite our best intentions and we generate antipathy, envy, resentment… even our kindness, generosity or helpfulness may be interpreted as ‘hypocrite’, so what to do?… stay patient and tolerant, because we can’t seem nice to everyone and be liked by everybody… 🙂 we must learn to detect, to guess, to recognize, to glimpse, to choose the feelings of others, without allowing ourselves to be ‘blinded’ by prejudices that would urge us to unfairly exclude from our circle interesting people who do deserve our esteem… our life is like scales with several plates and each one is made ​​up of our own universe: love, family, friends, work, entertainment, etc…

our goal and target: to keep the balance between these ‘plateaux’, to prevent and to avoid an eventual imbalance that may disrupt us… happiness is rather an attitude of mind and we should look for it inside our hearts, not elsewhere… being optimistic doesn’t chase away failures and mistakes, but it helps us ‘to weigh” and ‘to judge’ them fairly… any negative past turns into a lesson and not an obstacle to live better in the very present… if we feel happy today, we could also be happy tomorrow… in fact, a better life is not really ‘rocket science’ and sometimes we simply need to be hopeful and positive, to perceive the world differently… our life does have a ‘price’ that doesn’t depend entirely on us, happiness means to reject pessimism and to observe events or circumstances from a ‘critical’ viewpoint and not a ‘catastrophic’ one… let’s strive to feel more cheerful than yesterday, let’s always keep a bit of humor, let’s smile… if we make a record of our days, we’ll certainly find at least an hour of relaxation, fun and joy… 🙂

  1. Beautiful advice to live by. 🙂

  2. Profound words Melanie. Your pictures always intrigue me in their contents. Diversity and interesting that leaves the mind contented. Well that’s the only way I can express it. Emu

  3. „l’amour et l’amitié nous sont aussi essentiels que l’oxygène” – foarte adevărat, reprezintă hrană energetică și sufletească pentru o viață fericită. Numai bine și un sfârșit de săptămână cât mai plăcut!

  4. Wow – ‘cheerful thoughts along the pathway of the fountain’ even the title of this piece is full of optimism and hope! I can connect to what you’ve said here, the part of coming of as hypocrites or in some cases flatterers too (i’ve been there, too) when all we are trying to do is be our-self and be a pillar of support for the person we genuinely appreciate. Hope and patience is all that counts – and I feel in sincere lack of both at times… but reading this definitely made me hopeful, the fact that someone understands means a lot, so thank you for sharing this thought and keeping the dying flame burning! I’m glad you found my blog so now I am directed to this wonderful place now! ❤
    Hope you are doing well, have a lovely weekend! 🙂

    • hi and welcome to my playground! thanx for your elaborated and kind comment! yep, you’re right: WWW and the real life are full of ‘bizarre’ creatures – flatterers & hypocrites… 😉 my very best, tons of inspiration and cheers! Prakāśa aura pyāra! 🙂

  5. Rimango sempre affascinato dalle immagini che pubblichi e dalle parole che scrivi. Felice venerd’ sera.

    • ciao, GP! grazie per le gentili parole che mi rendono felice… 🙂 tutto mi ispira, mi tengo l’idea e comincio a “ricamare” in giro senza mai riletto me… mio tempo è cronometrato! stesso con il mio ultimo post dopo aver esaminato “los abrazos rotos”… 🙂

  6. Ce frumos spus Melanie! Vorbele tale au ajuns la inima mea! 🙂

  7. Vad ca ai un pingbck de la 9 : “1000 d e motive pentru “… Merita sa -ti arunci o privire peste acele motive. Impreuna cu cele spuse de dumneata fac cat… 1000 de imagini la un loc! 😉 Incepe week-end-ul deci, iti urez o vreme excelenta, oriunde te-ai afla!

    • multumesc, la fel, Marian! à propos de aruncat o privire: o citesc pe “free star” de multicel, o apreciez sincer la justa-i valoare si ne cunoastem dincolo de bloage… 😉

  8. Ai mare dreptate, nu suntem facuti pentru a trai singuri {las la o parte acel citat biblic in care insusi Dumnezeu si-a dat seama ca “nu-i bine ca omul sa fie singur”} si de aceea cautam relatii de prietenie de… iubire, de care avem nevoie ca de aer! Suntem dependenti de cei din jurul nostru, de dragostea si prietenia lor si {de ce nu?} chiar de dusmania lor. Cat de fericita ar fi viata pe pamant daca oamenii s-ar multumi doar cu aceste doua simtaminte : dragostea si prietenia! Dar oare daca n-ar exista si ura, dusmania, tradarea… viata n-ar parea atunci prea searbada? Oricum, omul nu este nici ciuline si nici tomata, este… OM, adica “regele naturii”… natura pe care o distruge cu buna stiinta si pe care-o prezinti dumneata atat de frumos in aceste fotografii, pentru frumusetzea carora te felicit!

  9. really enjoyed this post! ❤

  10. This post was good for me to read today. 🙂

  11. Jolies pensées. C’est vrai qu’on oublie souvent. 🙂 Bonne fin de semaine, Mélanie. Brieuc

  12. Superbe billet Mélanie! Oui, nous sommes les maîtres de notre propre bonheur, qui lui, est en chacun(e) de nous… en avant: MARCHONS! Bonne et agréable soirée à toi!

  13. un drum pe care străbătîndu-l împreună, alături de tine, ai/avem șansa să găsești acele/celles fontaines vertes du bon soleil du bois flambant… ❤ ❤

  14. Încă e verde aproape totul la voi. 🙂
