Wish You the Best

Why say 'good bye' when that's so used and common. I try to say something with meaning when I may not see someone for a good time

"I wish you all the best"  I say it because it's true

Life Really is Simple

“Contrary to what we've been told, life is simple. We complicate matters with our choices.”

Keep Moving

I was stuck. Stuck in emotions, not able to move; move on or create.  It's natural during a loss and wise to know that.

It took time and a respite from the normal to see that I can move on.

I'm letting go of despair, letting go of angst, letting go of anger.

Now I'm moving on. As I write this I'm 1000's of miles from home where I gain a fresh perspective

I'm moving on after speaking with an adviser, several actually and it's proven well

Let's all move on to goodness. What's holding YOU back?

Slow Down

What a time it's been.   You'll notice there has been no new entry for some time. The events in Orlando, a major relationship change, local pride all kept me away

With all that's gone on I'm finding time to SLOW DOWN, realize we can and will move on.

The joy of living trumps non happy changes.

Let's enjoy those moments of joy and share them

Purpose

The purpose of life is...to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.” - Emerson

What's your purpose in life?    

I really try to look beyond the ordinary, the stereotypical and see the beauty in all while sharing that joy with others

Using Those Tools

There's a program that refers to 'using the tools laid at your feet" as a way of seeing what you need has been there already.


The L.I.F.E. workshop calls "trusted support" as



Trusted support means having a relationship with someone in which you feel fundamentally safe, supported, and willing to discuss any issues that create worry, anxiety, stress, or other psychological burden to you


Recently I had a few set backs, a good friend moving away, a co worker leaving a position that made work that much more worth it.  Someone I've known for 14 or so years has cancer.

Instead of complaining I called people, went out to where I could talk

When life looks down, lets look around and see whose on our side. Someone always is


Three Rules


So many of us continue to make choices that affect our lives in ways we never expected
With so many people graduating this seems to fit the reality of the days

Three simple rules in life

  1.  If you do not Go after what you want, you'll never have it
  2.  If you do not ASK, the answer will always be NO
  3.  If you do not step forward, you'll always be in the same place


For me at my age I'm back in graduate school - I'm GOING after it
It's been a rough week with a few set backs so I asked to talk with friends - I asked
The new business is slowly blossoming - we're not in the same place as last week

What rules fit your life right now?
