TAKING A LITTLE TIME

It really pays to take some time, just the look at your life and what is going on around you.
Sometimes,  we feel like our life is not what we want it to be.  Can we actually turn our lives around and
make it more like what we have in mind for ourselves?
I was looking at the pictures of the sunami and the earthquake in Japan.  What a tragedy.  Then, to top it all
off, they have leaks in their nucular energy plants.  It does  make me wonder, what will happen next.
When we consider, where we live,  and then compare it to some of the events happening in the rest of the world, things cannot be all that bad.
I live in an area where we get aftershocks from bigger earthquakes, mostly in California.  Some of them are
very strong,  so it makes me wonder what a real earthquake would be like.

Before we complain about our lot in life, we should first,take the time, to look at the rest of the world and what they have to deal with......

"Yesterday is History.   Tomorrow is a Mystery.  And Today?  Today is a Gift.  That's why we call it the Present."

BRINGING THE BEST INTO YOUR LIFE!

We all wish, sometimes, that our life was different.  We complain about our circumstances and become
depressed because we are not getting what we feel that we need.
Looking at the positive aspects of life is the way to get ahead.  Concentrate on all the good things, and let the
bad things fade into the background.
Always think in a positive manner.  Think of the ways you want your life to be, and do the little things that will
get you on that path.

"The people who get on in this world are the people that get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can't find them, make them."
                                                -----George Bernard Shaw----

PRELUDE TO SPRING

Ecclesiastes  3: 1-..............

"To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under the heaven"

"A time to be born and a time to die, and a time to plant and a time to pluck up that which is planted"

"A time to kill and a time to heal, a time to break down, and a time to build up:"

"A time to weep, and a time to laugh, a time to mourn, and a time to dance;"

"A time to cast away stones and a time to gather stones together; and a time to refrain from embracing;......"

PEACE AND HARMONY

1 Corinthians 13:4-7

"Love is patient, love is kind.  It does not envy, It does not boast.  It is not Proud.  It does not dishonour
others.  It is not self-seeking,  It is not easily angered,  It keeps no records of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil.  But rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts,always hopes, always perserveres."

DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME

Don't forget to ;put your clock ahead one hour when you retire for the night.

(in my oppinion, I wish they would just leave it alone, one way or the other!)

We can be allowed our own thoughts on this, but in order to survive, we need to go along with the majority!

HAVE A GREAT DAY!

T.G.I.F.

A familiar abreviation for a lot of workers.  (Thank God It's Friday)
In today's work world, work seems to encompass all seven days of the week.  There are a lot of people that do not get the traditional Saturday and Sunday weekend.
Just one more little comment on the way our world works.

COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS!

Appreciate your life:  Validate your family and friends, take a look at your accomplishments, in other words,
                                  COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS!

How often do we complain about a pain here or an ache there?  Is it a big part of our life or is it just one of life's little annoyances?  Do we think about people who live with pain 24/7 or have a disability that they have had every day of their lives?

How often do we complain about our work and what happens there, but in the same breath, if we did not have our work we would be compaining about that as well.

Just something to think about!

MARDI GRAS

Wow!  Today seems to be a day of all things. 
Mardi Gras or "fat tuesday"  Shrove Tuesday, the days to celebrate before Lent.
Also, Today is growth and prosperity day.

"The number 3 in Chinese rhymes with the chinese word for "growth" and the number 8 rhymes with the
Chinese word for "prosperity"  Thus, the eighth day of the third month is an auspicious time for beginning new
projects destined for growth and prosperity."

ALWAYS BE YOURSELF

Let us live our life, with that thought in mind.

Starting a new Month

We all want to begin at the beginning.  When we start a new month, we feel like we are getting a fresh start.
We all want to make our lives complicated.  We focus on the past, or worry about the future, when we should be enjoying the day we are living.
Today, is such a day.  We will start, as we mean to go on.
