Reflections

Immerse Your Self Fully

Life can be easier, if we decide it to be.

Who doesn’t wish to be rid of paperwork? What wouldn’t we give for having the garden magically weeded by itself? Yet these chores can also be part of the fun of life, if we so choose. Looking for the silver lining of each task costs no more than grumbling about them and stresses us considerably less.

The moans of modern life are in most cases our own making, so taking responsibility for them seems fair. If the train regularly arrives with a delay of fifteen minutes, and we have planned an important meeting for which being late won’t be tolerated, why not make a small sacrifice and take the earlier train?

If our documents are essential for our work why not invest some time in getting the filing sorted instead of fretting each time we need to find that crucial item without which we can’t complete the project? Taking the lift instead of using the stairs is a option with an impact on the waistline and the heart. As in all cases the choice is ours, as are the consequences.

‘Waiting for Godot’ proved successful for Beckett, but who are we waiting for to render our lives easier? Politicians? Bankers? Corporate leaders? Local councillors? Parish priests? Perhaps we should at least start by ourselves, just in case these venerable folk decide not to lend a hand.

Ending on an upbeat note, let’s remember the inspiration of Confucius: the will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential… these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence.

I enjoy hearing from you, so please keep sending the e-mails.

Ciao for now.

Brian.
