THE RESPONSIBILITY IS ON YOU

Good morning everyone.  Happy Tuessday.  Life is fabulous, wonderful, stressful, joyful, amazing, hard and scary.  If I left out a favorite adjective of yours, please feel free to fill it in.  Life goes on sometimes smoothly and sometimes like a rocky road.  There are times we have nothing to do with the events or situations we find ourselves in but there are also times where the outcome is a direct correlation of our actions.

Today's quote is, "In your life you've orchestrated successes and messes - acknowledge your part in both."  I officially retired from my day- job and I couldn't be happier, however; something happened months ago that really started me on this journey and let me tell you, it was a mess.  A big one.

We actively participate in our lives every day.  Should I have another cup of coffee this morning?  Should I pee AGAIN before I get in the car?  Should I take the shorter way to work?   Nothing life changing here but the ones that are indeed life changing are on us as well.  I had made a decision that radically changed my work environment and not for the better.  

I made a huge mess and I own it completely but the mess I made opened doors that would have remained shut had I stayed.  We are the conductor of our lives making sweet, beautiful music and hitting some rough notes as well.  In the end we are responsible for our choices and the kind of music we create!

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy

THE SUM OF ALL PARTS

Good morning everyone.  Happy Thursday.  Our blue eyes and brown eyes come from our parents.  So do our dimples, short stature and ability to tan or burn.  Passed down through generations are the things we cannot see.  Our abilities, fragilities and tenacity.  Every soul inhabits much more than the genes of our parents.

Today's quote is, "We are the sum of DNA from our parents our grandparents and all the souls of our ancestors."  You may not have met your great great great great great grandmother, but her influence remains.  Generation after generation passes on not just our physical attributes but those that are blind to the eye.  

While the struggle that many of them went through has thankfully been left behind what they have given us is an appreciation for the hardships and joys that befell them.  Your legacy will be more than what you leave your children as their mother and father but the entourage of all of your ancestors way before your time.

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone! ~Love, Amy

KNOWLEDGE DOES NOT EQUAL WISDOM

Good morning everyone.  Happy Tuesday.  I used to love to read.  I went through an intense reading period taking frequent trips to the library (remember those?) to check out books on a variety of topics.  Life got busy, (you know how that goes) and the internet allowed you to research and read just about anything you could think of not making curbing my desire to return to the library.  

I read for two main reasons.  To be entertained and to learn.  While reading certainly enhances one's knowledge it does not give you wisdom.  Wisdom is an entirely different thing.

Today's quote is, "Having knowledge does not mean you have wisdom - one is gained from books while the other is gained through life and time and experience."  It's interesting to me how people of a certain age are no longer valued in the workplace and in our society in general when these are the people who have both knowledge and wisdom. 

Understand the difference between the two.  Having knowledge on a multitude of topics is easily gained and a wonderful addition to your existing repertoire.  Having wisdom takes time and years to acquire and cannot be found in any library.

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy
