Positive Attitudes With A Baking Twist

Friday

Friday is here and for most of us we are at the end of the work week.  With the transforming of ourselves into the “weekender” plans are made for our relaxation and enjoyment be it with others or by our self.  We bid the past week and all of its absurdities and unique experiences adieu and move on. 

Have an enjoyable weekend filled with surprising and unexpected good.

R U Busy?

   R U Busy?

Recently I was sent a newspaper article concerning being busy and minimal or no time to relax and recharge.  How sad many create such tight schedules there is barely, if any, room to breathe in the Manna of Life.  Life is not about being busy but about busy living life.  Do not confuse the two.

How many people do you know who have created such tight schedules you can’t even get together to chat over a cup of coffee. 

I remember talking with fellow business travelers, on a long flight, that were constantly on their laptops and that it was expected of them by their companies.  When the plane landed they dashed off to a meeting—it amazes me how anyone can be at the top of their game if there is no rest and recharging break.

It is one thing to be busy and another to ignore one’s well-being.  The pressure and stress I see today that is self-imposed stuns me, especially when it precludes taking care of self and/or family. 

When the drive to succeed outweighs living and being part of life at the cost of family, friends and enjoyment the success gained is empty, a deep and lonely chasm of regrets.

Success to be well-rounded and gratifying necessitates striking a balance, albeit the scales dip back and forth and some sacrifices are made, one has to allow time for R&R.

It is never too late to change the course one is traveling to achieve a balance in living a successful and happy life while reaping all the rewards in the process.

The all consuming work and no play takes a toll on the body, mind and spirit.  Each time one burns out the longer it takes to mend.

So, take time to consider a balance between your professional and personal life if your desire is to savor the benefits of both.  

What price success?  Your choice.

Saturday

   Enjoy the day with family and friends.

Kick up your heels and dance the night away or at least part of it, or just toe tap to the beat of the music.    

Laugh at the absurdities and smile at the rest. 

Perhaps it is merely a whimsical day in which to play.

A Wednesday Thought

   A Wednesday thought is by Thomas Troward.

“We should aim not so much at having or making some particular thing as at expressing all that we are.  The expressing will grow out of realising the treasures that are ours already, and contemplating the beauty, the affirmative side, of all that we are now…leading us in wonderful ways to development of powers we never suspected, and the enjoyment of happiness that we never anticipated.”
