DESTINY: A PATH TO THE HOLIDAY SEASON

mala

With the Holiday’s just around the corner I just wanted to wish you all good health and a very Happy New Year.
Truly a time of reflection and reconnection with family and friends.

A former colleague and good friend reminded me of a a phrase I would toss out from time-to-time to staff just to get folks thinking in a new direction. I certainly don’t come by words easy and this was passed along to me in a pile of hand-outs at the Poynter Institute.
As I remember it noted the author as being “unknown”, sad that some of the most meaningful words and images are from those “unknown”.
Maybe that in itself is a lesson to be humble.
Over the years I have seen many versions but this seems to come close to what I most believe.

“WATCH YOUR THOUGHTS; THEY BECOME WORDS. WATCH YOUR WORDS; THEY BECOME ACTIONS. WATCH YOUR ACTIONS; THEY BECOME HABIT. WATCH YOUR HABITS; THEY BECOME CHARACTER. WATCH YOUR CHARACTER; IT BECOMES YOUR DESTINY.” -Lao Tzu-

Success: Do something that really makes you happy.

HAPPY HOLIDAY

TO A BETTER NEW YEAR:

NEW YEAR’S DAY:

NOW IS THE ACCEPTED TIME TO MAKE YOUR REGULAR ANNUAL GOOD RESOLUTIONS.  NEXT WEEK YOU CAN BEGIN PAVING HELL WITH THEM AS USUAL!

 Mark Twain

To my wonderful friends on both the east and west coast and my  family who have given me support in my quest.  Thank you from the heart, may 2011 not leave rain water in your plastic shoes?


Happy New Year:

The new year begins in a snow-storm of white vows.
