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.

November 2009 Contents

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 . . .

The brilliance of the earth is the brilliance of every paradise. Wallace Stevens

Genius is talent provided with ideals. W. Somerset Maughan

It is harder to cut out gains than our losses. Elizabeth Bibesco

Gifts are best given to those with the best memories. Publilius Syrus

All saints have a past and all sinners have a future. Anton Chekhov

He is not happy who does not think himself happy. Seneca

History repeats itself: historians repeat each other. Philip Guedalla

The best way to keep one's word is not to give it. Napoleon Bonaparte

    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 winner wants it all
    put in the effort and do not stall
    climb the hurdles, jump the wall
    you will succeed, no need to fall

    Do we live life through and through
    or do we think life owes me and you
    should we rather fall back on inner strength
    exercise, challenges, giving - all good for our health

    Is this life yours
    or is it ours
    can I do as I will
    or will be doing wrong still?

    My life is flat
    I have a cat
    I just stared and sat
    when my cat wore my top hat

    The background noise is loud
    the sky is so full of cloud
    will it rain again so soon
    produce a downpoor or is it a monsoon?

    Could you not go a bit quicker
    or are you a real stickler
    for doing things at your own pace
    but will it win even your own race?

    Rush, rush, rush
    see the fire in the bush
    slow, slow, slow
    stress, pressure, no time - I feel so low

    Too many pages to highlight them all but check out the following, just to wet your appetite, and see what you think - and let me know ...

    My plan is for www.everyday-wisdom-revealed.com to have its own ezine - probably starting in January 2010. So be on the lookout for further announcements for that. Be ready to sign up for this free ezine.

    My aim with these three four websites is provide a one-stop information and inspiration center to help support and assist us all through life. And help us all get the most out of our lives.

    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.

    A negative attitude

    Do not nurture a negative attitude.

    Whatever you do make sure you do not make things worse. Do your best not to let a negative attitude grow for it can then soon get out of control.

    And you may react:

    • something does not go your way and you do not like it
    • you are spoken to in a way that is just and fair but you choose to not take it on board
    • you get out of bed the wrong side and the day never gets any better

    A negative attitude

    • you see the worst in situations
    • you find it hard to see that people are trying to help you, you think they are interfering
    • you tend to think life and people are against you
    • you have a poor opinion of yourself. Your self esteem and image are both in need of a surge of positivity

    But we can make it all worse. We can wallow in our predicament. We think and ponder why life is not better for us. Why do these things just happen to us. Why are things always going against us.

    It can be tough but we must try to see the good in life and ourselves. See a bit of light.

    See a bit of brightness. Not just think that all is against us.

    We can change and start to make a real difference.

    Why not start now?

    Give yourself permission - today

    Hope you enjoyed it and found it beneficial. Martin

    -And there's still so much more I can't even begin to write about it here!
