Happy Memorial Day!

“The most important thing you can be in life is curious.”
~Neil deGrasse Tyson
So, be curious! Try new things. Be creative. Take a class in something you always wanted to do, but never did, like singing, or tap, or art, or that history class you swore you would take one day. In this new world of ours, there are more and more opportunities online. You don’t even have to leave your house. Go outside and look at the stars. Do you know all the constellations?

Practice ‘Self-Compassion’ today…
“When you say ‘Yes’ to others make sure you are not saying ‘No’ to yourself.”
“Self-care is not selfish or self-indulgent. We cannot nurture others from a dry well. We need to take care of our own needs first, so that we can give from our surplus, our abundance. When we nurture others from a place of fullness, we feel renewed instead of taken advantage of.”

The next time you are out walking, checking the mail, sitting in your car, or simply taking a short break, stop for just a minute, and listen.
Take a breath – in and out. Listen to the birds, kids playing, the sounds of the city. Take it all in. Be in the present moment. Be where you are.
Wishing you a Mindful Monday!

Stay close to your friends and family… for they have helped make you who you are.
Around the Corner
by Charles Hanson Towne
Around the corner I have a friend,
In this great city that has no end,
Yet the days go by and weeks rush on,
And before I know it, a year is gone.
And I never see my old friend’s face,
For life is a swift and terrible race,
He knows I like him just as well,
As in the days when I rang his bell.
And he rang mine but we were younger then,
And now we are busy, tired men.
Tired of playing a foolish game,
Tired of trying to make a name.
“Tomorrow,” I say! “I will call on Jim
Just to show that I’m thinking of him.”
But tomorrow comes and tomorrow goes,
And distance between us grows and grows.
Around the corner, yet miles away,
“Here’s a telegram sir,” “Jim died today.”
And that’s what we get and deserve in the end.
Around the corner, a vanished friend.
