Dear Taichung Happiers,

Baby, it’s cold outside?

We indulged a growing swell of emotion to wrap us up on this New Year’s Day. It was surprisingly balmy and shiny—only a little breeze told me that I wasn’t under the summer sun. Are you searching or waiting for the next season? Well, what do seasons truly mean to you? Which season makes you feel a sense of comfort and contentment washing over you? Singer and poet Ross Farrar referred seasons to the sense of wholeness and the idea of fullness. “Without seasons the human body seems to disagree with how it perceives the world, feels as if what's missing is the feeling & wants to attach to anything that will return to itself.” See? The candles we lighted, at any place, in any season, always cast illumination on our questing eyes. What are the things we have to say thanks for in every season? How to enjoy more season fun? As always, Happiers’ knowledge-and-experience sharing is greatly appreciated and will all add up to spice up our journey. Welcome to join our host Sue in contributing delightful and insightful conversations.

A ray of sunshine. Be a ray of sunshine, at any place, in any season. Literally, sunshine helps flirtation.
8) 8) 8) https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/01/130128081950.htm More importantly, positivity is a ray of sunshine bringing ourselves a confident condition and also making others happy. Positivity is the only solution to our long-lasting health, performance, and relationships. Check out how Professor Dianne Vella-Brodrick indicates the ways positivity improves our health physically, mentally, and emotionally. https://psychlopaedia.org/health/how-being-positive-improves-your-health/ So, why do we feel what we feel? Why do we think what we think? What do you value about yourself to translate your big dreams into the positive focus? Irish poet and playwright Oscar Wilde (16 October 1854 – 30 November 1900) painted an Impressionist picture. “We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.” Yes. That’s why Kid President always dances and invites us to dance under the sunshine. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m5yCOSHeYn4 Be a ray of sunshine, at any place, in any season. Remember that a sense of humor is our inner light that can transform negativity into positivity and make any moment fulfilled. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kzxFqJuatXU

Turn over a new leaf. “Dear Winter, I am breaking up with you. I think it’s time I start seeing other seasons………………Summer is hotter than you!” All right. Seriously, you never know how I love it when I read this again and again: “I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, ‘Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.’” (from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, by Lewis Carroll) One season ends and another season starts. A moment like that comes as a welcome reminder of the significant moments shaping who we are today. No season just changes and passes for nothing. When the season changes, the Nature is encouraging us to understand and embrace the complex dynamics; the Nature is encouraging us to think in a new way and help each other’s new thinking. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vo_lZiytsMw New seasons mean new possibilities. Only when we feel the expectation and excitement of a new season, only when we respect the natural constitution, can we feel the energy within every season. Change and constant growth is the way of life. The change of seasons inspires us to think differently what performance is about-- high-level performance in any field is a moveable feast--the change of seasons drives us to raise the bar on the results that we want to achieve. It’s great to look at the stars; yet, great could be no longer enough. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CRRTnVQLrFE Seasons change, and it keeps us sharp, really aware of our true state. Being open to every season is being open to every process of life. Go above and beyond, because serving more is the way how we show our respect to the Nature. Even an unofficial performance would go a long way. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hFIClHWSNAY

From "seasons" (by Hillsong Worship)

Like the frost on a rose
Winter comes for us all
Oh how nature acquaints us
With the nature of patience
Like a seed in the snow
I’ve been buried to grow
For Your promise is loyal
From seed to sequoia

Every cloud has a silver lining; anything is possible. Want to bath in fresh air and sunshine? Seasons Board Game, anyone?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RVEY-dxcSU0 Author Lionel Suggs simply put “Rhythms are what create the seasons, and rhythms are special for creating the season called love. This is a season that is always active, so even if you aren't experiencing it, someone else is, always.” Yes. Love challenges expectations and continues the cultivation—every season is a season of love. Love your dreams and believe in yourself, and anything is possible. That’s how we create and resume the reality. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cmpu58yv8-g Even in the winter season, we see that the way everyone smiles carries an air of expectation—it’s not the expectation itself—it’s how the expectation influences the rest of our lives. Nevertheless, when winter comes out of the blue during the spring season, we should make fierce attempts to seek for the invisible root, to spread our wings, and to fly high. What we can learn from the seasons is “Anything is Possible“. Give more love and believe in yourself, and anything is possible. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MuiiXneb0V4 Above all, empower the possibilities every season has gifted us. Assess the situation, acquire the information, and deliver a plan of accountable actions. Besides, bear it in mind that the purpose of slowing down is to speed up again. Let’s learn more from The Tiny Seeds. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VSFNr777V0A

Brighten up the day. Happiers’ smiles are rememberable and always help restore happiness. Every season runs to us, and all our fury and frustration melt away in its embrace; every season is a remarkable reminder that we have to get in touch with ourselves; every season encourages us to be surrounded by people with beautiful hearts and minds. Writer and philosopher Dejan Stojanovic confidently communicated his perspective that“Although all days are equally long regardless of the season, some days are long not only seasonally but by rewards they offer.” May your every single day more than rewarding. Keep warm and dream on! Join us. Thanks!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UFatVn1hP3o


With Gratitude,
