Is the kind of life you are currently living sustainable? 

In her book More Time to Think, Nancy Kline refers to an article which posed that question. It said:

“Describe your current life – the number of hours you sleep each night; the amount of time you rush; the proportion of your day you worry; the amount of time you don’t just sit; the amount of time you don’t listen to your children and your partner; the amount of time people don’t listen to you; the amount of time you complain; the amount of self-betrayal you do by not sticking to your value of self-care the amount of time you do emails; the amount of time you don’t exercise; the number of days per month you drink alcohol; how often you don’t laugh; how frequently you don’t each freshly prepared food; your waist measurement; your weight; the amount of time you spend in aeroplanes and cars; the amount of time you are away from the people you love most.”

And then she says, here was the scary question.

“Is this sustainable?

Well.  

Is it?



 

Remember – life isn’t a dress rehearsal, so dare to be happier! x

A prayer for times of transition 

God, my Source of Strength:

A season is turning in my life

Calling me to make ready:

Walk with me, I pray. 

This unwrapped course lies divided ahead 

Urging careful determination:

Walk with me, I pray. 

The gate has swung open and everything’s loose 

Bidding that someone be left behind:

Walk with me, I pray. 

Until the turbulent waters clear 

I reach for your mercy 

And pray for wisdom:

Walk with me, I pray. 
Keri Wehlander

May you not forget the infinite possibilities….

May today there be peace within.
May you trust your highest power
that you are exactly
where you are meant to be….
May you not forget the infinite possibilities
that are born of faith.
May you use those gifts that you have received,
and pass on the love
that has been given to you….
May you be content knowing
you are a child of God….
Let this presence settle into our bones,
and allow your soul the freedom
to sing, dance, praise and love.
It is there for each and every one of you….

Saint Therese of Lisieux
