A. Joyful ideas from me


1.


“When tragedy arrives in your life, reduce the scope of your focus. Instead of contemplating the week ahead, focus on the next minute and look for happiness there.”


_________________


2.


“Sleep impacts every element of our health and well-being. If you want to achieve anything in your life, start by getting a good night's rest”

3.


“Play is enjoyable learning. When completing any task, ask yourself how you can approach it in a playful manner and let go of the outcome.”


______________________________... ______________________________


B. It was once said…


1.


The ancient Roman philosopher Lucius Annaeus Seneca on making the most of each day:


"Let us prepare our minds as if we'd come to the very end of life. Let us postpone nothing. Let us balance life's books each day...The one who puts the finishing touches on their life each day is never short of time."



2.


Author and speaker Alan Watts on the importance of faith:


"To have faith is to trust yourself to the water. When you swim you don’t grab hold of the water, because if you do you will sink and drown. Instead you relax, and float."


______________________________... ______________________________



C. Something to consider this week:


“Consider your relationships. Which ones nurture you and which ones drain you? How can you spend more time being nurtured than drained?”


Until next Monday,


Alexander Holloway
