“It is very important that we re-learn the art of resting and relaxing. Not only does it help prevent the onset of many illnesses that develop through chronic tension and worrying; it allows us to clear our minds, focus, and find creative solutions to problems.—Thich Nhat Hanh—

We seem to run all day—to pay the bills, invest in the future, get ahead, perform endless jobs, and when we’re finished with that, we run even more.

It is good to take a bit of time each day to sit and relax, to contemplate and meditate. Only a few minutes of contemplation will act as a powerful pill of reconstitution. Try it.

Smile for your inner happiness
Remember, you are the only you in the world
And remember that, Everything is going to be all right

John P. Schulz—“Sweetie Drives on Chemo Days.”

It’s Not What You Look at…

Quotes and Notes #231, June 30,

“You can’t depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus.”—Mark Twain—

It is important, no matter what we experience or how old we are, to keep searching, keep asking, and to continue to examine our surroundings.

We must never lose the questions, “What would happen if…” and “What would it look like if…”

And to share a smile
Everything is going to be all right
John P. Schulz—“Sweetie Drives on Chemo Days.”

What would it look like if...?

“I Just Really Don’t Have Time…

Quotes and Notes, #230, June 29

“Focus is a matter of deciding what things you’re not going to do.—John Carmack—

I have thought for a long time that when someone says, “I don’t have time to do (something),” that what they really mean is, “I don’t want to do it.”

In the switched on world we must be diligent in focusing on staying focused. If reaching a goal is what we want to do, it follows that allowing distractions is not what we want to do. Stay on course. Don’t get caught sidetracking.

And share a smile
Everything is going to be all right
John P. Schulz—“Sweetie Drives on Chemo Days.”
