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

The purpose of life 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?
