How true isn’t this? 😀 Law of attraction, babey!!! ❤ 

When you’re smilin’, when you’re smilin’
The whole world smiles with you
When you’re laughin’, oh when you’re laughin’
The sun comes shinin’ through
But when you’re cryin’, you bring on the rain
So stop that sighin’, be happy again
Keep on smilin’, ’cause when you’re smilin’
The whole world smiles with you
But when you’re cryin’, your bring on the rain
So stop your sighin’, be happy again
Keep on smilin’, ’cause when you’re smilin’, baby
The whole world smiles with you

There are so many Disney films with upbeat, happy songs full of wonderful life messages, it’s amazing! I am so grateful for the people who put such joy, heart and soul in creating these, they are truly special 😀

This is one of my favourites, it’s from The Jungle Book and called “The Bare Necessities”……. The tune gets me so cheery everytime! Yes indeed! Lifts my spirits and I find myself singing along like no tomorrow 😀 The animation is also so beautiful, gorgeous colours and such cuteness, softness here ❤  LOVE!!! (Just don’t eat the ants please, stick to a plant-based diet with all the fantastic fruits and prickly pears and pawpaws there 😀 )

“Look for the bare necessities, the simple bare necessities

Forget about your worries and your strife

I mean the bare necessities,

Old Mother Nature’s recipes, that brings the bare necessities to life

…if you act like that bee acts, uh uh, you’re working too hard

and don’t spend your time lookin’ around for something you want that can’t be found

When you find out you can live without it and go along, not thinkin’ bout it…

I’ll tell you something true – The bare necessities of life will come to you!”

(Music & lyrics copyright Walt Disney Music Company, songwriter Terry Gilkyson)

Heartfelt thanks Disney for all the happy times 😀 😀 😀 ❤

“You’ve got to accentuate the positive 

Eliminate the negative

Latch on to the affirmative  

Don’t mess with Mister In-Between

You’ve got to spread joy up to the maximum

Bring gloom down to the minimum

Have faith or pandemonium”

The power of thinking happy thoughts!!!!!! I Loooove it ❤ ❤ ❤

Enjoy this positive song, here sung by the fabulous Aretha Franklin ❤


Our world is full of wonder… if we choose to see it. If we focus on the magic which surrounds us, it finds us even more. Law of attraction. I am still in awe that there’s a giant round star in the sky which keeps us alive with her warmth. The sun, she shines for us. Isn’t that nice? And in the dark of the night, cute stars twinkle for us from places in the past and our moon dances across the sky showing us different faces (phases). Many, little, tiny, different seeds can become giant trees, green plants, beautiful flowers, colourful fruits. And here we all are, just walking on this ball floating and spinning in space. Around and around we go. It’s amazing 😀

Everyday is a gift and I am so grateful and happy to be here.

I’ve changed this blog from focusing mainly on art to collecting and sharing thoughts, things, places, beings, and yes still art etc etc. which I find fascinating, interesting, incredible and joyful. My intention is to uplift and share the wonder in our world!

No matter what is going on in my life, in your life I believe in focusing on the positive and choosing to feel happy as often as possible. There is real power in happiness. With it’s bubbling, tingling energy/ electricity it lifts us up, so we are as if floating on air. And I cherish and relish seeing things from this perspective!

Now, that we are here, alive, on this abundant blue green planet, let’s enjoy it and ourselves 😀

Here’s to Louis & his fantastic smile 🙂 !
