Think on These Things #21 – January 29, 2013

A belated “Think on These Things” post. I opted for a day of rest today to nip in the bud my various symptoms of winter in Edmonton: sneezing, sore throat, runny nose, and headache. I sound like a cold medication commercial. LOL

Words to Live By #27 – January 28, 2013

Sorry for the tardy post for this week’s Words to Live By. I went ice-climbing this weekend and decided to shut-off my iPhone for almost the entire weekend. Yay me!

Without further ado, today’s quoto:

Good and Evil

I’ve subscribed to various mailing lists that provide me with continuous motivation, inspiring quotes, beautiful stories, and tips and tools. One such daily email is called, Makes Me Think.

One of today’s stories “made me think” and is an inspiring example of the power of individual action. Here it is:

This story brought to mind a quote by Albert Einstein:

And it also brings to mind the following quote by Edmund Burke:

It’s my hope this story and the two quotes made you think and also I hope this post inspires each of us to take a stand against injustice, bullying, and rude behaviour.

Have a great weekend, friends.

Ponder this… (Jan. 24/13)

Are you “too nice”? A doormat? The go-to person for getting things done? Do you always roll-up your sleeves to pitch-in when needed? Ever feel taken for granted?

I saw a great quoto on Facebook today. Thanks to Marc and Angel for inspiring today’s food for thought.

And remember, we are all responsible for giving people permission to treat us the way they do. If we don’t like something, it’s up to us to change it. No one will or can do this for us.

MLK Day

Today is Martin Luther King Day, which is celebrated in the U.S. It’s a federal holiday marking the birthday of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (His birthday is January 15 and is observed on the third Monday in January to allow for a long weekend).

Martin Luther King, Jr. is known for his (peaceful) role in the U.S. civil rights movement that sought equality for African Americans under state and federal law.

MLK, Jr. Day was established following his assassination in 1968.

Best known for his “I have a dream” speech, there are far too many quote worthy sayings attributed to MLK, Jr.

Here’s one I ponder regularly:

Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Whether you’re American matters not. We can all learn from the life of MLK, Jr.

Words to Live By #25 – January 13, 2013

Do you think of Sunday as your day to prepare for the week? I do and so I think it is apt to aim to publish my Words to Live By post on Sundays when possible. I think it’ll be a great tool in helping me transition into the next week and I hope it’s useful for you, too.

Ponder this… (Jan 8/13)

Life is too short to spend time on people who don’t value us and it’s too short to not focus our energies on the people with whom we want to foster more meaningful bonds.
