Reflections

We have entered the New Year, many changes have occurred and are continuing to occur it is not too soon to begin examining how you want to plan for the coming months ahead of you and your loved ones. Often families begin to look at new happenings as a bit of excitement and a bit of a challenge. Weddings, births, promotions, new jobs, new educational ventures, retirement, and travel can be stressful while at the same time aiming for it to be pleasurable.  In some instances, it's a time for job hunting or planning for summer school programs or taking lessons that were not possible during the regular school year. For others, it's an opportunity to catch up on things that had been neglected, cleaning homes, gardening, or repairing broken objects, finishing tasks, starting an exercise program, losing weight, or buffing up.  No matter what the hopes are for this new year the one thing that sometimes is forgotten is that it is a busy time. The self-imposed or imposed by others' expectations, frustrations, celebrations, restless moments all have an impact on how you feel. It's a time to remember that it is important to stay cool, to pause, and to reflect before you react. Take a deep breath exhale and take a walk. Take time out to simply enjoy a moment of rest, peace, and quiet. Take a moment to laugh, dance, and share a story. Take time to have a conversation with someone you care about. If you need a break from all the plans you have made don't be afraid to ask for help and rethink whether you have overextended yourself. Remember it's alright to modify your plans. It's alright to limit the information coming at you from the media, news, and well-intended friends. It is alright to say No to things that create stress or have the potential to create stress in you.


Mother Teresa wrote this poem
LIFE
Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is bliss, taste it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is costly, care for it.
Life is wealth, keep it.
Life is love, enjoy it.
Life is a mystery, know it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it.

 

"The thought manifests as the word. The word manifests as a deed. The deed develops into a habit. And the habit hardens into character. So watch the thought and its ways with care. And let it spring from love, born out of concern for all beings." BUDDHA (C.5673-c. 483C )

Romans 15:13 May the God of hope fill all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.
