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 . . .

Why does a woman work ten years to change a man's habits and then complain that he's not the man she married? Barbra Streisand

To be conscious that you are ignorant is a great step to knowledge. Benjamin Disraeli

If GM had kept up with technology like the computer industry has, we would be driving $25 cars that got 1000mpg. Bill Gates

The bird a nest, the spider a web, man friendship. William Blake

The love of liberty is the love of others; the love of power is the love of ourselves. William Hazlitt

A man's errors are his portals of discovery. James Joyce

It is in our lives and not our words that our religion must be read. Thomas Jefferson

The best way to destroy an enemy is to make him a friend. Abraham Lincoln

Knowing others is wisdom; knowing yourself is Enlightenment. Lao Tzu

I've made an odd discovery. Every time I talk to a savant I feel quite sure that happiness is no longer a possibility. Yet when I talk with my gardener, I'm convinced of the opposite. Bertrand Russell

Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it. George Sanyayana

God never made his work for man to mend. John Dryden

Friendship is the only cement that will ever hold the world together. Woodrow Wilson

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 like to think
We know what to do
We don't like to sink
Yes, float above all your whole life through
Is your color red, yellow or is it pink
Keep your head up the sky is really blue


I need to believe in myself
It's surely good for my health
Let my life run good and true
And I'll help life do the same for you


You should attempt to get the best from your life
Life knows that you are most adept
Be positive, deal with troubles and strife
Be open, and don't question everything and suspect
That life is not really on your side
Believe in yourself, there is no real reason from life to hide


Is this the right road
Where will it take us
Find the source of life's energy, that is life's real food
Explore, savor, and understand more to find success
Do what is natural but just make certain that's for the common good


What more is there to say
what more can we really do today
to keep life on its own good track
don't get het up, give life a bit of slack

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.

Open to outside help?

Are you open to outside help?

Or do you shun it? Push it aside?

Have a hard job accepting it?

Feel it reflects badly on you if you do accept assistance?

Do not want to admit that you might need some support?

Do not like to feel that you cannot manage everything yourself?

Find it hard to come to terms with yourself afterwards?

Get embarrassed by the whole thing?

Do not like the experience as it makes you feel less worthy?

Are you open to outside help?

You find that you feel a little bit vulnerable and do not like the feeling.

You look back and wonder why you could not do all that on your own?

You dislike the feeling that you may need motivating or may need inspiring.

But WHY might you feel any of this?

Is it that you feel you would lose your self respect?

You feel that you might lose confidence and lose face?

Or

You may feel it is the lack of openness that is the problem.

The help is fine and received with gratitude but the showing the sense of need gives you the shudders.

Or the support is appreciated but you wonder why you cannot ask for it.

Or you have been helped before and not liked the experience. It felt belittling.

And what might change this?

Are you open to outside help?

To realize that help is help and that is all. And it is the thoughts and feelings of caring behind the support is what you find hard to accept.

To understand that others do like to help you and accepting gratefully on your part is all that is required by way of thanks. But you need to come to terms with that.

To appreciate that you cannot do everything yourself and need to be supported or assisted in some of the things that you do?

And then you will be able to find that all is well. You can be grateful and accept, and life wil go on.

And that you can achieve so much more (at times) by working with others rather than just on your own.

And. When you are more open to outside help . . .

And when you come to terms with the fact that others will freely assist you in your life - you will have made another step down the road to being a more rounded individual.

Go to it now (and reap the rewards).




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