When ‘I’ is replaced by ‘We,’ even ‘Illness’ becomes ‘Wellness.’
We only experience right now as Emily Dickinson explains below:
Forever — is composed of Nows
by Emily Dickinson
Forever — is composed of Nows —
‘Tis not a different time —
Except for Infiniteness —
And Latitude of Home —
From this — experienced Here —
Remove the Dates — to These —
Let Months dissolve in further Months —
And Years — exhale in Years —
Without Debate — or Pause —
Or Celebrated Days —
No different Our Years would be
From Anno Domini’s —
Music is the space between the notes. From Mozart to Adele, it comes down to the pauses and inhalations, which allows the music to flourish.
Breaks and a breath in life are the same thing. Whether it’s first thing in the morning or before a meeting. Stop, pause and breathe – then ACT. Let your music play.
Sharing a meal with friends is an age old way to strengthen bonds and be in the moment with people you love. Cook, laugh, talk, savor the food, drink and bookmark the memory. It’s the gift that keeps on giving.
Reaffirm your vows. Remind yourself why you committed to something or someone. It’s an effective recharge and reboot exercise.
You are only as smart as the people you talk to. Travel, new places & new acquaintances fuel creativity & learning. Break routines, talk to people.
It’s a lot easier getting into something than getting out.
Buying something is easier than returning it.
Hellos are easier than goodbyes.
Interviewing is easier than resigning.
Hiring is easier than firing.
Signing a lease is easier than breaking a lease.
Falling pregnant is easier than raising a child.
Dating is easier than breaking up.
Starting from scratch is easier than fixing something that’s broken.
Dropping bombs is easier that rebuilding a war torn city.
Life’s operating system is wired to make us commit to something. It’s not wired to help us make the right choice, it’s our hands on the tiller.
Momentum is a powerful thing, but be careful when it’s in the wrong direction. When it’s right, you’ll never look back.
