Nose to the grindstone

For all the workaholics I know:
If you put your nose to the grindstone rough
And keep it down there long enough,
You’ll soon forget there are such things
As brooks that babble and birds that sing.
In time three things will your world compose:
Just you and the stone and your poor old nose.

Love what you do for a living

 

And you thought this was for tax advice only..

When you work for the thing you believe in,

you’re rich though the whole way is rough.

but work that is simply for money

will never quite pay you enough.

 

– Rebecca McCann

 

 

We are not sent into this world to do anything into which we cannot put our whole hearts.  We have certain things to do for our  bread, and that is to be done  strenuously; other work to do for our delight, and that is to be done heartily; neither is to be done by halves or shifts, but with a will, and what is not worth this effort is not to be done at all.

 

– John Ruskin

True Wealth

If You Want True Wealth…

Remember What Is Most Important

It’s not having everything go right;

it’s facing whatever goes wrong.

It’s not being without fear;

it’s having the determination

to go on in spite of it.

It is not where you stand,

but the direction you’re going in.

It’s more than never having bad moments;

it’s knowing you are always

bigger than the moment

It’s believing you have already

been given everything

you need to handle life.

It’s not being able to rid

the world of all its injustices;

it’s being able to rise above them.

It’s the belief in your heart

that there will always be

more good than bad in the world.

Remember to live just this one day

and not add tomorrow’s troubles

to today’s load.

Remember that every day ends

and brings a new tomorrow

full of exciting new things.

Love what you do,

do the best you can,

and always remember

how much you are loved.

A little Solace?

Can we link back to the Ocean?

Just leaving the port of Bayfield on Lake Huron with Lee Gee on the bow supervising the waves.

2016 is our 15th year in the same port, and the sunsets are still as good as they get!!
