Yoda said “Just disconnect. Once in a day sometime, sit silently and from all connections disconnect yourself.” Nice... that's a great quite from Star Wars... but it makes sense in the real world too! Sometimes you need to unplug.... unwind... and disconnect for the hustle and bustle. That can be different for each and every one of us! Some people like to go for a walk... others may like to go for a quiet drive. Whatever that “happy place” is for you... find it.... and go there once in a while! It does not need to be an expensive exotic vacation... but those can be good too... but at the right time, but unplug a little bit every day!

George Bernard Shaw said “Happy is the man who can make a living by his hobby.” I love that. When I was nineteen years old, I had already worked in radio for a little while. I was speaking to a person who I considered a mentor. She said to me “Make your hobby your career and you'll never work a day in your life!” I remember thinking about that for a bit, then taking the advice to heart. I followed my passion and had the chance to work in the radio industry full-time for almost thirty years now. There were many early mornings and late nights, but it never really felt like work!

Richard Bach said “Bad things are not the worst thing that can happen to us. NOTHING is the worst thing that can happen to us.” Yes. If something bad happens, we can learn from it and press on to better days. When nothing at all happens... you may start to wonder why! My advice would be pretty simple. Don't be afraid of something bad happening... it's most likely going to happen! Be prepared for it... be ready for the bad so it's not quite as bad! Then you need to be ready for the good too! Don't get in the way of your own success. Be ready to win and get out of the way and let it happen!

Seneca said “Nothing is more honorable than a grateful heart.” I agree 100%! I'm amazed at how many times I've witnessed someone receive an amazing blessing, then respond is such a weird way that almost seems like they didn't appreciate the blessing. Be grateful for the blessings that come your way... then don't be surprised when MORE blessings come your way! I'm not sure why, but it seems to be the case for some weird reason. People who are TRULY grateful seem to be blessed more often! Have you noticed that too? Maybe it's just me, but I think it seems that way for some reason... so be grateful!

Charles Kettering said “No one would have crossed the ocean if he could have gotten off the ship in the storm.” I love this. Think of how many times you've been through something difficult, that eventually got much better. Something that improved your life, but first you had to weather a storm to GET to the good part. I've been through that so many times that I sometimes even say thank you for the hard times... because it makes me appreciate the good times even more! I'm not saying you should do that, but it makes me feel better. In the middle of the bad, I just think about how good it's gonna be when the storm is over!
