About Me

Monday, January 02, 2012


Live with interest and zest in 2012. Keep your spirits up and engage in activities that inspire and interest you. Overcome obstacles and press on with liveliness and energy. Life is short, live it to the full! Live up to your potential, listen to your inner voice. Make time for your inner voice and be gentle to yourself.

My new favorite poem for 2012 is Desiderata. "Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle to yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars, you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should."

Move with confidence in the New Year! Embrace new opportunities and look for growth in yourself. Plan for the next twenty years. This is the Kindergarten of your life. Use a beginner's mind to take a fresh look at everything that you have achieved and realize your good fortune. You are much better off than so many people in the world. Be grateful, live with an attitude of gratefulness.

The past two days were spent with my young nephew and niece and their fresh outlook has helped me to refocus and recharge my mind. I am grateful for this time with them.
