Good morning!

Happy Tuesday! Hope your long holiday weekend was fantastic! I will be posting later on with updates and photos!  In the meantime, here are some quotes from the Dalai Lama who celebrates his 75th birthday today:
All major religious traditions carry basically the same message, that is love, compassion and forgiveness the important thing is they should be part of our daily lives.

Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.

If you can, help others; if you cannot do that, at least do not harm them.

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.

There is no need for temples, no need for complicated philosophies. My brain and my heart are my temples; my philosophy is kindness.

have a wonderful day!
