Happy Monday my friends,
Now that summer is approaching, there is always so much to do on the weekends, whether gardening, going to the beach or pool, or just enjoying the outdoors with family or friends. I am sure many of us found it hard to get up today and get our head back in the work mode. Although, you may not have felt it this morning, each and everyone of us should be thankful we have a job to go to. If you think about how many people that have been effected by storms that had devastated their homes and families or loss of a job due to bad economy we all might reconsider just how lucky we are to still be employed.
THE BENEFIT OF WORK
“Work banishes those three great evils: boredom, vice and poverty.” (Voltaire)
Maybe the Puritans had it right: Work in and of itself is important. We’re usually happiest when we’re working-even as we’re complaining that we need more time off! Of course we can work too hard, and we’re often tempted to do so. But working hard and staying busy puts food on the table, keeps us out of trouble, improves our outlook on life, and reminds us that we are useful and needed.
NOTE TO SELF
I complain about work, but I realize I am lucky to have it. (Linda Picone)
Resolutely train yourself to attain peace (Buddha)
Time is a created thing. To say, “I don’t have time,” is like saying, “I don’t want to.” (Lao Tzu)
You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have. (Maya Angelou)
There is no passion to be found playing small. (Nelson Mandela)
Wishing everyone a great week
