AYD - July 17, 2012 - Knowing you knowing You.

"If a man insisted always on being serious, and never allowed himself a bit of fun and relaxation, he would go mad or become unstable without knowing it."
- Herodotus, 484BC - 430BC

Take a look around you.
Take notice of those that influence your moments, in a way that you do not wish to be an influence.
Be careful not to become something just because your enviroment beckons you to play follow the leader.

Write your own character sketch.
Define how people and peers talk about you, by being You.

Good day to you, and many happy references to the Person you are.

AYD - July 16, 2012 - Review

I have to admit, I was unprepared for this morning.  I got all caught up in the activity of the weekend, and found myself shuffling priorities.  And as usual, time can easily get away from us.

As I began my morning, I found myself and others at the office beginning our day by discussing the not-so-good happenings of the weekend.  I immediately felt some regret.  While I may still be preoccupied with a couple of events on the weekend that were tiring,  there were many that were uplifting.

So with that, might I suggest that before you let a Monday start on the wrong foot, be an example for others.  Review your successes from your weekend....ride that wave and share with others how your good, was greater than any not so good, and add a little spring in your step.

You will show how you can focus on the better side, and you will inspire others to carry on thinking about the sunshine thru the clouds.

Have a great day.
