Inside

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”

~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Thanksgiving

“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”

~John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Wishing you all a peaceful and blessed day!

Life

“There are only two ways to live your life.  One is as though nothing is a miracle.  The other is as though everything is a miracle.”

~Albert Einstein

Veteran’s Day

“Lord bid war’s trumpet cease; Fold the whole earth in peace.”

~ Oliver Wendell Holmes

I invite you to take time this week to honor our nation’s Veterans.

Mistake

“A mistake should be your teacher, not your attacker.  A mistake is a lesson, not a loss.  It is a temporary, necessary detour, not a dead end.”

~Unknown

Tight

“When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, until it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.”

~Harriet Beecher Stowe

 

Interruptions

“Interruptions can be viewed as sources of irritation or opportunities for service, as moments lost or experience gained, as time wasted or horizons widened.  They can annoy us or enrich us, get under our skin or give us a shot in the arm.  Monopolize our minutes or spice our schedules, depending on our attitude toward them.”

~William Arthur Ward

Certainly a perspective worth entertaining!  Enjoy your week.

Today

“Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: ‘I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.  I can choose which it shall be.  Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.  I have just one day, today, and I am going to be happy in it.'”

~Groucho Marx

Family

“A farmer who had a quarrelsome family called his sons and told them to lay a bunch of sticks before him.  Then, after laying the sticks parallel to one another and binding them, he challenged his sons, one after one, to pick up the bundle and break it.  They all tried, but in vain.  Then, untying the bundle, he gave them the sticks to break one by one.  This they did with greatest ease.  Then said the father, ‘Thus my sons, as long as you remain united, you are a match for anything, but differ and separate, and you are undone.'”

~Aesop

Autumnal Equinox 2014

“Oh what a catastrophe for man when he cut himself off from the rhythm of the year, from his unison with the sun and the earth.  Oh, what a catastrophe, what a maiming of love when it was personal, merely personal feeling, taken away from the rising and the setting of the sun, and cut off from the magic connection of the solstice and the equinox.”

D.H. Lawrence

The Fall Equinox occurs at 7:29 PST Monday evening.  I invite you to connect with the magic.
