Weekly wisdom – strength

“An arch is
two weaknesses
that together
make a strength”

Weekly wisdom – the best of intentions

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“I may not have gone
where I intended to go,
but I think I have ended up
where I intended to be.”

 Douglas Adams

Weekly wisdom – the journey matters

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“It is good to have
an end to journey toward,
but it is the journey
that matters in the end.”

Weekly wisdom – it begins

Work finally begins
when the fear of doing
nothing at all
trumps the terror
of doing it badly

Alain de Botton

Weekly wisdom – live well

It’s too easy to wait until we get really unwell to do something about how well we live:

Eat and exercise like you’re a diabetic heart patient with a stroke – so you never become one.

A great reminder – um, if only I could remember where I read it (apologies to the author).

Weekly wisdom – just start

… because if you’re anything like me, you’re doing this right now!

Don’t keep putting things off,
waiting for 12 doves to
fly over your house
in the sign of the cross
before you begin. Just start.

Jack Canfield
