A Warm Welcome To The 'Balance in Life' Electronic Newsletter

Hi, I'm Martin, and I'm very happy to be sharing a little more about life in this free monthly newsletter.

Life is very precious as we all know. And it is a noble aim to get the most out of it. Each month you will find new content here - not seen elsewhere first. Read and think and enjoy!

There will be a mixture of material to get our teeth into. To help move our lives along if we so wish. To think about life if that is what we want to do. Or to just ponder and wonder about life's rich tapestry, and what it has to offer us.

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 . . .

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 . . .

    Prose 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.

    The warm summer sun shines in the sky
    we sit and relax and let time pass us by
    it's good to be at peace and feeling at one
    with nature, ourselves - it's good to enjoy it alone

    We stride forward knowing where to go
    no need to look just go to and fro
    we know where we are at it is that simple
    we are happy with life - that's not a trifle

    The grass is greener on the ground
    it comes up forth but makes no sound
    yet is alive in its own way
    alive, vibrant, no thought of eventual decay

    All relaxed on a summer day
    shone upon by the sun's warm ray
    re-energized, refreshed, all tensions gone
    troubles, pressures, all away have flown

    What is our true nature
    shown by action, deed, our stature
    important to remain loyal and true
    be honest, reliable, maintain our integrity

    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 more of a thought provoking theme.

    Get your emotions right get your life right

    Emotions have power and we know it. Oh boy do we know that. The hold they seem to hold over us. And is it in our favor or not?

    And how do we know that, just from our everyday experience of life, that's how.

    And how do they impact on our lives, if only we knew the full story we would give them more credence, wouldn't we? We would be more protective of ourselves while keeping our eyes more open to the effects of the different aspects of life . . .

    But we live in our own little world and find out things the hard way most of the time. And the hard way includes lots of little knocks and cuts and bruises. And that is just getting started.

    But that is all part of life. It helps us grow, helps us develop, helps us to find more in ourselves. We are challenged and then in meeting those challenges we give more of ourselves. We ask more of ourselves and we won't find ourselves wanting, will we?

    When we are really in there what then happens? We start to gain a bit of experience and then we become, over time, a bit street wise and can handle ourselves that little bit better.

    And is that effort and experience worth its weight in gold. You have to believe it.

    How we respond can make us and make our day. How we deal with them is oh so important. Understanding of the effects of emotions can help us and give us insights into how to live our life, both with and sometimes inspite of the way we might be feeling.

    Are they beneficial or a curse? At different times we see things differently. At times we are prey to the winds of change and what is happening in our life.

    At other times we are able to accept the emotion for what it is. Often they occur in response to movement and advancement in our lives. Giving us a bit of a roller coaster ride before the flat and less choppy plains give rise to a period of peace and harmony and reflection in our lives.

    But this is often how life can develop for us. A little storm before a breakthrough and progress.

    That is encouraging, but one thing that has give me much comfort over the years. This is the firm belief that life does NOT challenge us beyond our capabilities. Though at times it seems to know us better than we know ourselves.

    Believe in yourself, go with your emotions and feelings. They are there for a reason.

    Learn from them, accept yourself and move on in your life. And you will do well - good fortune is on your side.

    Is their a conclusion? I'll leave you with a few quotes that will help to put aspects of life into perspective . . .

    Jealousy is no more than feeling alone against smiling enemies Elizabeth Bowen

    Oh, how I am tired of the struggle!
    Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

    We had the experience but missed the meaning.
    T.S. Eliot

    When prejudice commands, reason is silent.

    Our goodness derives not from the capacity to think but to love.
    St Teresa of Avila

    Waste no more time arguing what a good man should be. Be one.
    Marcus Aurelius

    Hope you enjoyed it and found it beneficial. Martin
