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.

Spontaneous

.

“All growth is

a leap in the dark,

a spontaneous,

unpremeditated act

without benefit

of experience.”

.

~ Henry Miller

.

Mother always said,

but who listened.

Even when well thought out, planned to the smallest detail,

things will turn out the way God wants them to.

Want to make God laugh ? , tell Him your plans.

Today, don’t waste your life planning the outcome,

just go with the flow, do what you are responsible for,

do everything with the best of positive results in mind,

and know that happiness and life are best enjoyed

when you stop trying to swim upstream.

Life is a spontaneous act.

Life is living and loving in the here and now.
