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 . . .

The misfortunes hardest to bear are those which never come. James Russell Lowell

Music is the arithmetic of sounds as optics is the geometry of light. Claude Debussy

We are designed to want: with nothing to want, we are like windmills in a world without wind. John Fowles

For every complex problem there's a simple solution, and its wrong. Umberto Eco

The measure of a master is his success in bringing all men round to his opinion twenty years later. Ralph Waldo Emerson

Expect nothing. Live frugally on surprise. Alice Walker

Politics is perhaps the only profession for which no preparation is thought necessary. Robert Louis Stevenson

All empire is no more than power in trust. John Dryden

Absurdly improbable things are quite as liable to happen in real life as in weak literature. Ada Leverson

Sensitive people wish to be loved; vain people wish only to be preferred. Duc de Levis

There are two ways of losing oneself: by insulation in the particular or dilution in the 'universal'. Aime Cesaire

Music does not change our frame of mind; it makes us feel what we think. Comtesse Diane

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.

It is this time of year
nights are dark but no need to fear
stay close to yourself and be
all will be OK you will see
no need to shed a tear

What a load of rubbish
bins, full or empty in their place
recycle, yes that is our wish
not to try to save the Earth would be most foolish
we all need to be on the case
lest we in all the rubbish, just vanish

We are told we should save
at times this can seem impossible or grave
we spend, spend, spend oh so much
on this and that and such and such

What in life does really count?
of what does it all amount
can we understand what we must do?
thoughts, deeds or actions to and fro
be careful lest the consequences we cannot surmount

Your moment is coming
there is no need to wait
there is no use ducking
be bold, confident as you meet your fate

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.

Be in a good space

Be in a good space - this is an essential part of everyday life.

Of course this can mean your immediate environment. It is important that you feel comfortable there, too.

But what I really mean is being comfortable in your own skin.

Being happy with who you are.

Having a good, calm and contented demeanor.

If something comes along to upset this then soon this will pass and you will be back to your calm, natural state.

Trying to be positive. Trying to see the good in things.

If something goes wrong or awry not beating yourself up about it, but putting some effort into rectifying the situation.

Find some peace and contentment in your life.

Avoid the hurly burly, the confusion and the complexity, the uncertain and the non-essential.

Find a space where you can live and be content and be satisfied.

Where you can be. Not where you have to always be fending off people or things that you do not need.

Cultivate some good friends. People you trust and respect. People you feel comfortable around.

Cultivate yourself. Be happy to be around you. If you are not all the rest will likely not really help much. It may seem to take your mind off things but you need good and solid foundations.

Develop your own value system - the principles by which you live your life.

Find strength in yourself. Find your own spirit and your own mind.

Be your own person.

Belong but be yourself.

Trust in yourself and do what you feel is right.

Hope you enjoyed it and found it beneficial. Be inspired to become more in 2011. Make the most of every moment you have. Martin
