So what do we have in store this month in this edition of 'Balance in Life'?

So let us get started on this months edition . . .


On a Lighter Note

Following on from the Lighter Note page on the website I thought I would provide just a few more quotes here each month.

Another chance to smile, to ponder, to think, to appreciate, to . . .

It's a strange world of language in which skating on thin ice can get you into hot water. Franklin P. Jones

There never was a good war or a bad peace. Benjamin Franklin

You can no more win a war than you can win an earthquake. Jeannette Rankin

Science is simply common sense at best. Thomas Huxley

I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free. Michaelangelo

Every time I go to a movie, it's magic, no matter what the movie's about. Steven Spielberg

Pure mathematics is, in its way, the poetry of logical ideas. Albert Einstein

Poetry is nearer to truth than history. Plato

The tongue is but three inches long yet it can kill a man six feet high. Japanese proverb

Theory helps us bear our ignorance of facts. George Santayana

Let each man exercise the art he knows. Aristophanes

Politicians are the same the world over. They promise to build a bridge even where there is no river. Nikita Krushchev

Prose 'n Poetry Corner

Each month I will look through my notebooks and find a little bit of prose 'n poetry. Often written in a few minutes, so please don't expect Wordsworth, but hopefully these entries will provide a little interlude in your day. A chance to think and ponder, to daydream or to visualize, to perhaps see things in a different light.

Please see what you think and let me know if it is useful or not - highlights some valuable points but in a lighter vein . . .

Happy reading.


We can just talk
sit around, do not away from me walk
all this back and forth makes me feel dizzy
I like plain and simple, leave out the glitzy


You want to be first
but do you really have the thirst
to go where others have tred and explored
to find yourself, all those wonders, wisdom yet to be discovered


We cannot today have it cancelled
lack of interest, motivation, just be determined
to see the essentials of life this day through
do you really know who really is who?


How do you rate
what is your true state
afraid of your fate
be on time and never be late

be patient
life won't let you wait
today can really be that date
when you move on and embrace your true fate


Life has a princely sum
need not be boring or humdrum
there is so much excitement to be had
it is your right, need not be just a fad
just be up front and willingly beat your own drum

Main Article

Each month there will be an article, with fresh content, that goes into a subject in a little more detail. Perhaps give a different stance. Perhaps provide food for thought. Perhaps . . .

This month a different theme.

Have a sense of proportion

Have a sense of proportion. Make that a good sense of proportion.

Know what is important in your life.

Know what your priorities are.

Know where to put your energies.

Know your own capabilities.

Find a balance in the life you have - or change things until you do.

Realize that there is more to life than getting up and going to work or looking after the house and family, important as they are.

Look at your life and reflect on what you are doing.

Examine things - are they really what you want and are they productive or satisfying?

Assess and evaluate - try to get the measure of what you are doing in life.

Are you spending too much time and effort in one particular area? Did you realize that and are you happy with that?

Is there a harmony in what you do or are some things pulling one way and other things another?

Is there any 'you time'? Time and space for you?

If you want to change something have you made an agreement with yourself

  • what you want to change or stop
  • how much effort you are willing to expend
  • which direction you would rather be going in
  • when you want all this to occur
  • can you see the benefits of this move?
so that you do not blindly go in and change (or try to change) something and end up in a worse or less liked situation.

You may want to put your foot in the water to 'test the temperature'. Try something out before you go for it.

Is what you are doing one of your priorities or just small fry in the grand order of things? And something to do rather than tackle the really important issues you need to deal with?

Find out what is important to you. Ring fence those if you wish.

There is only so much time in each day so use your time and efforts wisely.

Every now and again reflect on progress.
  • is it quick enough
  • are you happy where you are going
  • are you being productive
  • what obstacles do you meet
and
  • how much do you like the life you have
  • how much do you like the way you are handling life
  • how much do you accept yourself
  • how much do you respect yourself
do you have confidence in your abilities?

But do not beat yourself up. Things take time and some things are beyond your control anyway.

Be proportionate and give of your best and be happy with what you do.

and do not be bogged down by trivia . . .

What you are and what you stand for and become are very important elements of your life. Move forward with confidence.



Hope you enjoyed it and found it beneficial. Be inspired to become more in 2012. Make the most of every moment you have. Martin
