Way too much to say about this than I have time for right now…
Seriously, if you don’t have this RSS ‘d, DO IT! Or at least go read through some of his other recent entries.
Such a cliche, but I strongly believe and “try” hard to live up to one of my favorite sayings.
“Treat others as you wish to be treated yourself.”
Therefore, while I am not perfect at it, I try not to criticize or talk bad about others, because I don’t wish to be criticized by those I care for. I try to give people the benefit of the doubt, because I would like the same. And most of all, I try to see the good in people and believe their intentions are positive, because I myself would like people to believe I always meant the best.
With that said, Mike Collins had another GREAT one today that falls into the realm of the above quote.
RB: Life’s Yard Sale
(Seriously, what would I write about without Mike?)

Ok, ok, I know, I reference this guy a lot! (Sorry Mike!) But I do love this statement:
“Floating through life punching a time clock and wondering what you’re good at won’t feed the bulldog, as a friend of mine from Georgia says. You’ve got to identify your gifts and put them to use. It’s a sin and disgrace not to.”
From today’s The Perfect Workday entry, They Can’t All Be Human, Can They?
I’m glad to say I think I am putting my gifts to use. What do you guys think?
And better yet, what are your gifts? Are you putting them to use?
RFBN (re-Facebook note?) @Paulo Coelho:
Would you do a list of 5, 6 or 7 things that you should do to improve your quality of life?
If I think about myself, I think that I’ll stay less time in front of this monitor but besides that I think that I really care about my quality of life, I do as much as I can: walking in the fields, enjoying every single moment but I want to hear your opinion this week on improving your quality of life because this can be very useful to other people.
Thank you so much for sharing.
I have to agree with his number one—less time in front of LCD screens. (Maybe I should buy a typewriter…)
Additionally, without giving it too much thought, I’d have to say:
1. Attend yoga regularly
2. Move to a location that allows me easy access to the mountains, countryside, etc.
3. Travel more
4. Spend more time with loved ones (including Max)
5. Forgive and forget
On the contrary, here are some things I am loving about my life, and why:
1. Spending regular time with my nearest and dearest: It’s helped me develop deeper friendships.
2. Being single: I’m learning to value internal happiness that’s independent of others.
3. Work contributions: The more you put in, the more you get—both at work and in personal endeavors!
What about you?
WHAT WOULD YOU CHANGE ABOUT YOUR QUALITY OF LIFE?
Paulo’s Quote of the Week:
“To say “no” is painful, but much better than a “yes” that brings regrets.”

I might as well start this entry like my other recent ones: This daily blogging gig isn’t turning out so well.
Yet with that said, I must add that I am proud of myself for getting words down as often as I have. Between a full-time job, 3-hour daily commute, part-time weekend job and prospering social life, it’s not easy getting online to write down some thoughts—not to mention coming up with thoughts.
When I do need some relaxing, mind-numbing downtime, I like to dedicate it to late-night walks with Max. Although this weekend, we did not spend a lot of QT together. With MJ in town—all the way from London ladies and gentlemen—the last three days have been packed with sightseeing, city-exploration, EATING and female bonding.
In the last three days we have:
All in all a good weekend if you ask me. Not only did we go on some exciting adventures, most of which revolved around eating fantastic food, the company throughout it all was fabulous!
Alright, there you have it. Over and out!
