for peace of mind…

For peace of mind,

resign as general manager of the Universe.

– Larry Eisenberg

I like this quote.  Yes, it is a little funny, but it is also so true.  We live in a world where everyone knows everything, wants to be change and of course speak their mind online and off.

During this difficult time, I hope you have come to realize that you are not the General Manager of the Universe.  Unless you work in an essential industry right now there may not be anything you can do about the current crises but stay home.  And that is important.  By staying home you are doing your part to stop the spread of the virus.

After a storm did major damage to the neighborhood where we live, Bob and I felt so helpless.  We wanted to help.  We were trained to help.  It took us a while but we finally had to realize the best thing we could do was stay out of the way and take care of ourselves.  Doing that helped the workers be able to clear the roads, restore power and get help to those who needed it.

So if you are working, as usual, bless your heart.  We all do appreciate the medical, retail, delivery and other workers who are working so hard taking care of us during this difficult time.  If you are at home, take care of yourself and your family.  You are doing your part as well.

We have to make many choices

“In this life we have to make many choices. Some are very important choices. Some are not. Many of our choices are between good and evil. The choices we make, however, determine to a large extent our happiness or our unhappiness, because we have to live with the consequences of our choices. Making perfect choices all of the time is not possible. It just doesn’t happen. But it is possible to make good choices we can live with and grow from.”—James E. Faust

Every Day You Make Choices

“Every day, you make choices about what you will dedicate your time to, how you will spend your money, and who you will rely on. In every aspect of your life, you have the ability to choose either simplicity or complexity; finances, work, chores, shopping, entertainment, and relationships may all be sources of stress and chaos, or they may become wellsprings of peace and contentment.”Chelsea Walters

 

 

Choose!

“I won’t tell you that the world matters nothing, or the world’s voice, or the voice of society. They matter a good deal. They matter far too much. But there are moments when one has to choose between living one’s own life, fully, entirely, completely—or dragging out some false, shallow, degrading existence that the world in its hypocrisy demands. You have that moment now. Choose!” ― Oscar Wilde

The Real Beauty is Within Usf

“We turn outward, attracted by the beauty we see in created things without realizing that they are only a reflection of the real beauty. And the real beauty is within us.”  —-Ernesto Cardenal

Peace is the Beauty of Life

“Peace is the beauty of life. It is sunshine. It is the smile of a child, the love of a mother, the joy of a father, the togetherness of a family. It is the advancement of man, the victory of a just cause, the triumph of truth.”Menachem Begin
