What is 'play'?

Early morning reading from Psychologies January 2012.

New Word: Unlightened

Early morning reading & just came across: "Unlightened". This is a feeling one gets after a particularly mundane conversation where you feel as though you've wasted precious time talking nonsense. I like it! (...the word, not the concept!)

Sleepless Night


Last night I could barely keep my eyes open while replying to an email. When I eventually turned the lights out, I found myself awake. Wide awake! The combination of being awake...in the dark...with many hours ahead of me...is a recipe for disaster! 


Then I remembered this quote (pictured above). This morning I thought, "Imagine if such things were, in fact, true?!" Who was dreaming of me?! Well, it's a nice consolation (albeit not true) for a night of tossing and turning!

Power of Belief

"Gratitude is the single, fastest way to get out of fear/worry & into joy/authentic power. We see the world not as it is, but who we are."

The power of belief is incredible!
Get up. Dress up. Show up.
...never Give up.

The Pencil

I found this that I'd saved a while ago.
I don't know who the author is, but it was not written by me. Enjoy!
----------------------------
The Pencil Maker took the pencil aside, just before putting it into the box.

"There are 5 things you need to know" he told the pencil, "Before I send you out into the world. Always remember them and never forget, and you will become the best pencil you can be."

"One: You will be able to do many great things, but only if you allow yourself to be held in Someone's hand."

"Two: You will experience a painful sharpening from time to time, but you'll need it to become a better pencil."

"Three: You will be able to correct any mistakes you might make."

"Four: The most important part of you will always be what's inside."

"And Five: On every surface you are used on, you must leave your mark. No matter what the condition, you must continue to write."

The pencil understood and promised to remember, and went into the box with purpose in its heart.

Now, replace the pencil with you...............................  Always remember them and never forget, and you will become the best person you can be.

One: You will be able to do many great things, but only if you allow yourself to be held in God's hand. And allow other human beings to access you for the many gifts you possess.

Two: You will experience a painful sharpening from time to time, by going through various problems in life, but you'll need it to become a stronger person.

Three: You will be able to correct any mistakes you might make.

Four: The most important part of you will always be what's on the inside.

And Five: On every surface you walk through, you must leave your mark. No matter what the situation, you must continue to do your duties.

Allow this parable on the pencil to encourage you to know that you are a special person and only you can fulfill the purpose to which you were born to accomplish.

Never allow yourself to get discouraged and think that your life is insignificant and cannot make a change.

Malta: The Meeting

The week long meeting turned out to be a super success. It was a fantastic opportunity to meet others, swap ideas and standardize much of what we already do.

I have no doubt that despite timezones, we will all continue to be each others primary resource and support system.

Really grateful for the opportunity!
