The Secret to Happiness
This chapter is dedicated to those of you who have experienced early pregnancy loss. You are part of a distinct group of women who have felt the happiness and joy of conceiving, only to have your hopes and dreams shattered by the loss of your pregnancy. What a challenging ordeal you've endured. Not only have you had to go through the physical pains and hormonal swings, but you've also faced the emotional ups and downs of losing your baby during the early stages of pregnancy.
Goodness of fit is as important in self-care strategies as it is in clothes. Making or buying clothes that fit our friends, or that fit the average person, or are the most popular sizes is unlikely to be a good approach to finding clothes that fit us. Using self-care strategies that are lifesavers for our colleagues may make us miserable. What sustains, replenishes, and gives meaning to an individual may flow far from the mainstream. Few us would advise someone who has found happiness, significance, and contentment in choosing a solitary monastic life with vows of silence and poverty, You know, you really ought to get out and socialize more, and find ways to earn some money so that you'll have a nest egg you could rely on. I know you'd feel better about yourself and have a better life
''Enrichment'' has potential costs as well as potential benefits. On the surface, it seems likely that an animal living with others or in an interesting environment would be happier than an animal that spends its entire life alone in a standard laboratory cage. But consider the Norway rat, a common laboratory animal. When placed together, groups of male rats will engage in a
The quince became a symbol of love and happiness, a symbolism that lasted into the Middle Ages. Quince was eaten at weddings, shared by brides and grooms as a token of their love. Medieval English manuscripts contain recipes mentioning char de Quynce, the old name for quince marmalade. In fact, the word marmalade is derived from the Portuguese word for quince, marmelo. Today the quince is cultivated throughout the Mediterranean, in South America, and in the United States, where California is the leading producer.
Of control of fertility and an ongoing mourning for the lost pregnancy still frequently reported 5-10 years after treatment 20 . Additionally issues regarding self-esteem, and loss of sexual desire can be troublesome for many years after treatment however, overall marital happiness does not seem to be impaired for trophoblast patients and their partners 21 . A number of surveys have demonstrated the wish of many patients to have more support through counselling and support at diagnosis and continuing even after treatment, and the recognition of this need must be addressed at centres and in the community subsequently.
Some animal rights* advocates accept this common distinction between killing humans and killing animals. These animal rights advocates are particularly concerned with the suffering that animals endure and with how we can reduce that suffering. Utilitarian philosophers (see UTILITARIANISM), such as Peter Singer, who believe that moral concern should be focused on minimizing suffering and maximizing happiness in the world, take this position. However, they go on to emphasize that when large numbers of animals are routinely killed, it is not a painless process. The animals who are slaughtered for food or fur are not killed painlessly. They feel pain* when being shot, cut, gassed, or clubbed to death. Animals also smell the blood of the animals killed just before them, and this frightens them, causing them distress.
That it is the bride who crushes the fruit, with her right foot, as she enters her new home. Gregory the Great said the pomegranate was to be used to symbolize congregations, because of its many seeds, and also to be the emblem of the Christian church, because of the inner unity of countless seeds in a single fruit (Haig), the same imagery as that used to symbolize fertility. In much the same way, that multitude of seeds stood for peace and prosperity. Jewish New Year dinners always include foods that are in some way suggestive of prosperity and happiness. One of them is pomegranates, that our merits may be as numerous as its seeds (Trachtenberg), and Greek New Year tables too always have the symbolic pomegranate on them (Megas). Breaking a pomegranate over the threshold is a very ancient New Year custom in Greece, just as a Moroccan practice, cutting a pomegranate open and throwing it on the ploughshare, will magically affect the fertility of the soil, and the ears of corn will be as...
(Cydonia vulgaris) As a symbol of happiness and fertility it was dedicated to Venus (Fluckiger & Hanbury), who is often represented holding one in her right hand (Ellacombe). Sending quinces as presents, or eating them together, were recognized love tokens so was throwing them at each other. Dreaming of them was reckoned to be a sign of successful love, or it could be interpreted as speedy release from troubles and sickness (Gordon. 1985). In 17th century England, it was reckoned that the woman with child that eateth many during the time of her breeding shall bring forth wise children and of good understanding (quoted by Boland. 1977). Perhaps all this is why they were claimed to be the Golden Apples of the Hesperides.
(Rubus idaea) An ever popular and healthy fruit. Even to dream of them was reckoned a good sign, for it meant success in all things, happiness in marriage, and the like (Gordon. 1985). Raspberry leaves were used in the same way as those of bramble, for sore throats and stomach upsets. The leaves of Raspis may be used for want of Bramble leaves in gargles . (Parkinson. 1629). The leaves, boiled with glycerine and the juice drunk, is an Irish remedy for thrush (Maloney), and raspberry leaf tea was an old remedy for relieving morning sickness it was also said to help labour, in fact it is a general country drink taken to ensure easy childbirth. It should be started, so it is said, three months before the birth is due, and taken 2 or 3 times a week (Page. 1978 Beith). Powdered leaves, in tablet form, can be bought - they help relaxation in childbirth, so they say, and the fruit will have the same effect. Gerard wrote that the fruit is good to be given to those that have weake or queasie...
Humans, other animals should not be predators. First, the animals who are killed for food suffer both the fear of being hunted and the pain* of being killed, often in gruesome ways. These animals also suffer the loss of the rest of their lives, which could have been happy lives. Since one of the basic goals of one view of morality (see UTILITARIANISM) is to reduce suffering* and increase happiness, the world would be a morally better place without predation. The second counterargument is stronger. Stopping predation would not reduce suffering and increase happiness. The only way to stop predation would be to kill all the predators. Also, the populations of many animals previously killed by predators would then increase dramatically. These extra animals would then die of disease and starvation thus they would suffer.
There is one piece of weather lore involving clover they say that their leaves fold before rain, and expand some hours before a heat wave (Trevelyan). To dream that you are in a field of clover is an omen of health and happiness (Raphael). What other interpretation could there be in popular imagination
And beast for the same purpose (Moore). Sprigs would be worn in button-holes, too. Soldiers attending the Tynwald on Old Midsumer Day (4 July) used to wear them the custom was revived in 1925, and sprays are distributed among the people coming up the hill (Paton), and they have become a conspicuous feature of what is a National Day on the island (Mabey.1998), its ritual importance emphasised by its particular association with Midsummer. Muggwith twigs were used in the south of Ireland as late as 1897, after they had been singed in a St John's fire, to guarantee protection against disease (Davidson. 1955). It is not surprising that mugwort served as a symbol of happiness, and of tranquillity (Leyel. 1937).
There is a superstition that if the leaves are eaten by a man and wife, it will cause them to love each other. This is in Albertus Magnus, where it was said that houseleek had to be taken as well. A 14th century manuscript says that 'Pervinca' powdered with earthworms induces love between husband and wife, if they take it first in their food. Very similar to this is the Fenland belief that if a young married couple plant a patch of periwinkle in the garden of their first home, they would have a happy life together (Porter. 1969). In Gloucestershire the something blue that a bride wears is periwinkle. Some say that it must be worn in the garter for fertility (Vickery. 1995). It is one of the flowers believed by people in Cambridgeshire to wither quickly if worn as a buttonhole by a young flirt or an unchaste wife (Porter. 1969).
Rejuvenation is also symbolised by rosemary, at least in the French language of flowers, where it stood for the power of re-kindling lost energy (Rohde). Bancke's Herbal of 1528 carried the advice make a box of the wood and smell it and it shall preserve thy youth (Arber). It was with rosemary that they tried to wake the Sleeping Beauty (Rohde). Yet another of rosemary's symbolic virtues is that of fidelity in love. As such, it was appropriate as a gift from the bride to the groom. Rosemary bound with ribbons was a token of a bride's love for her husband (Higgins), and a favourite valentine used to be a sprig of rosemary painted on a heart (Webster). Rosemary was worn at weddings, and appears to have been considered as the insignia of a wedding guest on these occasions the sprigs were often gilded, and dipped in scented water (Andrews). Polish brides and bridegrooms wore a tiny wreath of rosemary on their head. It was blessed by the priest and carefully kept, to be boiled in the water...
Observation of parsley's germination time has given a number of superstitions. Its seed is one of the longest to live in the ground before starting to come up. Further, the devil is implicated - it goes to the devil nine times before it comes up (Northcote) (or some say seven (Clair) ). So it takes an honest man to grow parsley (or only a wicked one, depending on the point of view). It only comes up partially because the devil takes his tithe of it (M E S Wright) in fact, they say in Wiltshire that you must sow four times the amount you need (Wiltshire). To offset this you can pour boiling water over freshly sown seed to deter the devil (Baker. 1974), or better still, sow it on Good Friday, when plants are temporarily free of the devil's power (Baker. 1980), or do it at the very least on a holy day, which Somerset people say (Tongue. 1965), giving themselves a little leeway. In Ireland, naturally, they say it should be sown on St Patrick's Day, which in most years would not be far...
HONEYSUCKLE is a symbol of constancy, presumably because of its twining habit (Tynan & Maitland), and MUGWORT symbolises happiness and tranquillity, as does the PEAR for affection and comfort (Leyel. 1937). The MADONNA LILY is the symbol of purity (Haig), chastity (also Haig) (it will only grow for a good woman (M Baker. 1977), of beauty (Zohary), and celestial bliss (Woodcock & Stearn), for to early medieval artists and theologians this was the flower of heaven. But of course, this lily is the emblem of the Virgin Mary, so the symbolism stems from that. PARSLEY seems to have been a symbol of festivity, though quite why is not clear. To the Greeks it also symbolised strength, and they crowned the winners of the Isthmian Games with chaplets made of it. FENNEL, too, is a symbol of strength, and also of flattery (Dyer). The Italian idiom 'dare finocchio' means to flatter (Northcote). SWEET CICELY represents the opposite, sincerity, while LETTUCE is the emblem of temperance, according to...
With such an impressive list of dedications, it comes as no surprise that this lily has been used against evil influences (and as an antidote to love philtres (Napier)), and these beliefs are carried on to ordinary superstitions. Madonna lilies are often seen in old gardens - in Wiltshire it was said they were there to keep ghosts away (Wiltshire). If a man treads on a lily, he will crush the purity of the womenfolk of the house (Radford). From the graves of people unjustly executed, white lilies are said to spring as a token of the person's innocence (Grimm), and from the grave of a virgin, three lilies grow, which no-one but her lover may gather (Dyer). Because white lilies have this association with the commemoration of the dead, they are generally unlucky plants to have in the house (Vickery. 1985), but of course they are often used at funerals (Drury. 1994). Nevertheless, to dream of lilies means joy (Mackay), happiness and prosperity (Raphael).
Dream books tell that dreaming of ALMONDS signifies a journey, its success or otherwise depending on whether it was sweet or bitter almonds that were being eaten (Dyer). GARLIC in dreams indicates either the discovery of hidden treasure, or the approach of some domestic quarrel, the one apparently dependent on the other. But to dream of garlic in the home is lucky (Gordon). Similarly with ONIONS dreaming that you are peeling them foretells domestic strife and impending sickness (Raphael), and if you are eating them it is a sign of finding some valuable treasure, just as dreaming of being in a TURNIP field is a sign of riches to come (Raphael), though the dream books were not unanimous about that. So too with POTATOES - if you dream of digging them, it is a good sign, provided, of course, plenty of them are dug if there are only few, then there is bad luck coming (Raphael). CABBAGES, too, seem to bring bad luck. To dream of cutting them is a sign that your wife, or husband, or lover as...
