We have the tendency to run away from suffering and to look for happiness. But, in fact, if you have not suffered, you have no chance to experience real happiness.
Thich Nhat Hanh
Giving at the office (I work for a blood bank) some A-Negative whole red blood cells for those who need it. It’s good to help others. The first donation of the new decade. Whatever you can do to help those in need just do that.
Rain is grace; rain is the sky descending to the earth; without rain, there would be no life.
I got up at 5 to get my mom to the hospital for a routine medical exam. Needless to say I’m going to be tired later today as I am this morning. Have a good day everyone.
In an ever-changing world certainty is one of those things that gives one comfort and some peace. However, its the mystery of life that means certainty is not always what is best. Having a certain way of doing things can mean one doesn’t have to think, it just comes naturally through practice and tradition.
Our religion is something many can be certain about. Maybe its science or history or the arts. It’s always going to be there or so we hope. All of those things are subject to new information, trends, discovery and personal interpretation.
Sure it would be great to be certain about one’s income or who wins the big game or perhaps what the rules of life are but even all that is subject to forces outside our control. In our personal lives being certain to have the love of family in friends is reassuring.
I suppose the only thing to be certain about is change and we are all subject to that in our daily lives.
Nobody knows the future with certainty. We can, however, identify ongoing patterns of change.
I think Mr. Toffler is on to something. The future is not a lock but if we pay attention we can be ready for the change that will certainly come.
Certainty isn’t certain.
Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.
Well the weekend has come and gone. Hope yours was a good one.
