Putting Out Fires

.

“Beware

the barrenness

of a

busy life.”

.

~ Socrates

.

A life so busy, the plate is overflowing and

all one can do is put out one fire after another.

Doing for the sake of doing without leaving time

for the spontaneous and the unexpected will lead

to a life that is bare of joy and happiness.

Balance, a full plate is enough

and playing with fire one could get burnt,

so leave time to enjoy the moment.

Be happy, try to do something important

but do not try to do too much,

Happiness is taking time to enjoy.

Happiness is helping someone help themselves.

the spirit-world of childhood

.

“What heaven

can be more real

than to retain

the spirit-world

of childhood?”

.

~ Beatrix Potter

.

As the Pennsylvania “Dutch” say,

‘we grow too soon oldt undt too late schmart.’

Smarten up, don’t grow old, think young no matter

how you feel and let your spirit be happy, joyous and free.

Today, don’t just think outside of the box,

live outside of the box and expand your world

with the imagination of a child.

Life is to retain the spirit-world of childhood.

Life is living and loving in the here and now.
