Wisdom: The Evolution Of Life

Fact of Fiction? A couple quotes come to mind sitting here putting together today’s roundup of Weekday Wisdom to share with you. The first one is “Life imitates art far more than art imitates Life.”― Oscar Wilde Often pondering the true meaning of these words by Mr. Wilde, my thoughts go to another saying: “Be careful what you wish for as you might surely get it.”  Given my outlook on life, such sayings and quotes point me to the matter of focus – what things I am giving my attention

How To Make This December Matter

Beyond The Gifts And Parties December is one of those months that the gamut of emotions are up for grabs. There are some who find this to be “the most wonderful time of the year.” What with all the gift giving and receiving, the decorations to be put up, the meals to be planned, the parties to attend. Then there are those who, for religious or sentimental reasons, do not like the month because of all the carolling, the gifting, the celebrating the birth of a man they share nothing

Pushing: 3 Reasons To And Not To

Let It Happen Naturally “Don’t push it, don’t force, let it happen naturally… .” Do you remember that song? It was very popular back in the day and as I recall it, an image of myself doing a strange-looking shovelling motion springs to mind.

If you are ready to listen to a litany of complaints, ask a sympathy addict how they are doing and sit your butt down for the answer. This will be no drive-by “I am doing well thank you for

The Gift of Giving & How To Stop Giving A Shit

The Gift of Giving Christmas is viewed by many as the best, and for some people the only, time to give. A few years ago, I stopped giving Christmas gifts. Some new friends of mine thought that very strange of me when they were told in no uncertain term not to buy me any gifts for Christmas. I made it very clear that I was not buying them any either. Not sure that they took me seriously, until Christmas morning when there was nothing under the tree for them from

How To Tone Your Spiritual Six-Pack

Spiritual Wellness There is a system here, a very informal and flexible one, but a system nonetheless in the way posts are planned, organised and published. Tuesday is the Wellness Day and posts here and on my Facebook page somehow cover this theme. Yesterday was Motivational Monday – another feature of our “system,” and as the search was underway for matters motivational, several favourite quotes of mine popped up. Making note of them for a latter date, the thought came to me that maybe Wellness Tuesday would be a good
