Apple Named Calm Sparkle

Hey, everyone! Are you wondering who Calm Sparkle is? If you answered yes, you’ve come to the right place. Read on to find out.

Once there lived a small apple whose name was Calamity. The apple didn’t know how to say Calamity but she was able to say,”Calm Sparkle.” So her name was shortened to Calm S.

True to her name, she grew to be a big calm sparkly apple. One day, she didn’t seem so calm. She explained,”I’m just anxious to see my relatives. The last time I saw them was when I was a small applet.”

So as time went on, she wasn’t calm at all. After her relatives left, she admitted she outgrown her calmness. The apple asked for help and everyone tried to help.

One spring morning, she felt unusually calm. She suddenly realized her calmness had returned. When she announced her calmness had returned, everyone clapped and cheered.

To this day forward, she can be found in everyone’s heart. She might be hiding or showing her calmness to your inner self.

Yummy pink apples!

I hope you enjoyed!

Emotions With Animals: Calm Monarch Butterflies

Hey, everyone! Welcome back to this week’s Emotion With Animals. (You get 2 Emotions With Animals editions this week). This edition of Emotions With Animals is in honor of a monarch butterfly flying so close to my head and my home. I hope you enjoy!

Monarch butterflies are calm when they’re flying. They might also be calmer after they eat some monarch butterfly friendly plants.

When you or someone else is calm, you will feel a lot better. You will be more confident and relaxed. You will be happy, mindful, grateful, thankful and joyful.

Take a moment to read this quote. If you want to, share it with family, friends, and relatives.

“Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.” – Buddha

How To Be Calm:

If you have anger: You should talk it out with someone you trust. See Angry Ducks for more ideas.

If you have sadness: It’s okay to be sad. See Sad Cats for more ideas.

If you have jealousy: Go to Emotions With Animals: Jealous Parrots to find what to do.

If you have mischief: Go to Emotions With Animals: Mischievous Pelicans to find out what to do.

Om Shanti Om: It’s a mantra.

Take a deep breath.

Step outside for a moment.

Draw or write.

Go for a walk.

Connecting with whatever feeling that is making you feel not calm.

Meditate.

I hope you enjoyed.

A Happy Fairy

Hey there, everyone! I recently wrote Happy DogsMindful Goslings, and A Mindful Mermaid Story. I write these stories to go on with the emotion stories.

Once upon a time, there lived a flower fairy who was almost always happy. Her name was Lilac L. (L. stands for Lily) Jane like a flower fairy. She was very happy with her life for a long time. One day while Lilac was fluttering around, she overheard a fairy saying,” Hey, be nice!” and surprisingly Lilac burst into tears. When she calmed down, she decided that she will talk it through with the fairy who had said, “Be nice!” in such a mean voice.

So she set off to find the fairy but the fairy found her first. The fairy said,”I figured you overheard me, so I tried to find you but I couldn’t. Anyway, that was my fairy cousin I was talking to. Do you want to be fairy friends? “. Lilac decided the fairy’s voice was so calm and kind that she went ahead and said yes. From that day forward, Lilac could be found with her fairy friend every day at 3:00pm. Of course, she stayed happy and never burst into tears again. If you listen hard, you might be able to hear Lilac and her fairy friend every day at 3:00pm.

Hope you enjoyed my story. Visit Camilla’s website called Mindful Musings to see more helpful blog posts.

Mindful Goslings

Hey, there! My blog post is to help  most people see that animals can be mindful at times. This blog post is especially for animal lovers or pet lovers. I recently wrote Happy Dogs, and A Mindful Mermaid Story.

You have to be calm and very quiet to approach baby geese. If you get loud and perhaps angry, they would just hiss at you or follow you.

If you were meditating, you’d want quiet and soothing environment around you. If you have any disruptions, you’d explode like a volcano or you’d lose your temper (like hissing and chasing you).

Mindfulness is good and very simple. Here’s some ideas that I’d like to share with you:

Reading: Try reading a calm book for a change.
Look in Nature: Focus on nature.
Coloring: Coloring will help you keep your mind sharp.

Here’s some ideas from the Internet:

Meditation will help clear your mind.
Breathing will help you feel better.

Here’s some ideas from Camilla Downs:
