I'm in grad school and classes are "DL" meaning Distance Learning aka "on line"  Though I need to be physically on campus two times a year for two weeks there's so much reading, responding done at home.

What a dreadful place to stay focused on intense classes. So many distractions. Besides the pup, easy access to snacks it's where I work that could be a distraction. Bad enough I live in southern Florida and it's summer every day and I would rather be outside I remain focused.

Looking at the bigger picture of WHY I'm taking classes and knowing I'm responsible for my education I remove distractions, shut off phone, close blinds and keep my work space clear

Lessons to apply beyond DL learning too.  Remove distractions and focus on the process

Beyond Me

It's easy for me to think in my own small world.  The view is good here and that's why I stay.

Then I realize there's a larger world out there, other thoughts, ways of doing things, seeing things, experiencing life.

I'm now embracing those other than moments and ideas thinking and being Beyond Me

Whether a person, people, idea or action I'd rather see beyond my walls and appreciate it

Some days, some times we just need a 'Reset" button. Sort of like a 'do over' with less stress!

Can we actually RESET or hope to? Some ways to RESET: forgive, move on, toss out old for new (ideas, stuff, etc)

Lets RESET our mood and begin afresh

Reason to Smile

Keep smiling,  It makes people wonder what your up to..

It also releases endorphins that help with your own happiness

Smile with me than share it along your journey

Going That Way

A recurring theme in so many of our lives is reliving our past.  It's good to know our history and what worked, what didn't lets not dwell on those moments.  

Move on with me to new ventures, new moments while embracing the memories we cherish

Years ago and I mean YEARS ago a television show called "Kung Fu" taught patience through Martial Arts.   The  Master often said the the petulant student "Patients grasshopper"

Grasshoppers often leap about and the main character had that trait.

I find when I leap about myself my inner Zen says "Patience grasshopper" to me.

Wise words
