Step Away and Dive In

Take A Little Trip

Take A Little Trip

The title of the post sounds like a pair of contrasting statements. Contrast is the key and the intent of the statement!

How do you step away and dive in? Take yourself AWAY for a day. If you want to make progress in a particular area, separate yourself from your familiar world – lock yourself away and spend a solid day, dawn to dusk, writing out a plan or getting a start on what needs to be done in order for you to succeed. It’s a great investment in yourself!

Take the early train to into the city or Travel to a small town far enough away that  you won’t know the people you encounter. I have found that a day spent at a coffee shop, a community or university library or a large hotel lobby offer anonymity and privacy with a low price tag. Of course, an overnight at a luxury hotel with a great rate on Living Social or Groupon can be a delicious choice.

As always, I welcome your thoughts on the topic and make it a great week!

Lifting Aching Hearts… Finding The Helpers

Aching Heart

Aching Heart

Renata Bower, whose book “Frieda B. Herself” , is a new children’s classic, posted a quote by Fred Rogers on her Facebook Page. Renata only posts really impactful photos, quotes and stories. I find the quote to be gentle, hopeful and filled with promise at a time when we are saddened by the loss of 26 at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

I  read that this quote has “gone viral”. I’ve only seen it one time and I now share it with you. Fred Rogers’ quote is an apt description of how Hope reasserts itself into our lives following a disaster. This quote is directly from Fred Rogers Company:

“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” To this day, especially in times of “disaster,” I remember my mother’s words and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers – so many caring people in this world.

In the intro to  “The Mister Rogers Parenting Book”, he wrote, “.. if we can bring our children understanding, comfort, and hopefulness when they need this kind of support, then they are more likely to grow into adults who can find these resources within themselves later on.”

May you find ways to be a helper as you find and bring  HOPEfulness to your life and the lives of others.

As always, I welcome your comments and feedback.

I wish you peace today…
