    Well-Planned Retirement

    Funny, but untrue story:

    Outside England's Bristol Zoo there is a parking lot for
    150 cars and 8 buses. For 25 years, its parking fees were
    managed by a very pleasant attendant... The fees for cars
    ($1.40), for buses (about $7).

    Then, one day, after 25 solid years of never missing a day
    of work, he just didn't show up; so the zoo management
    called the city council and asked it to send them another
    parking agent. The council did some research and replied
    that the parking lot was the zoo's own responsibility.
    The zoo advised the council that the attendant was a city
    employee. The city council responded that the lot attendant
    had never been on the city payroll.

    Meanwhile, sitting in his villa somewhere on the coast of
    Spain, or France, or Italy, is a man who'd apparently had
    a ticket booth installed completely on his own and then
    had simply begun to show up every day, commencing to
    collect and keep the parking fees, estimated at about
    $560 per day -- for 25 years. Assuming 7 days a week,
    this amounts to just over $7 million dollars... and no
    one even knows his name.

    This idea of shared humanity and the connections that we
    make with one another — that's what, in fact, makes life
    worth living. - Clint Smith


    While I was working as a pediatric nurse, I had the
    difficult assignment of giving immunization shots to
    children. One day I entered the examining room to give
    four-year-old Lizzie her shot.
    "NO! NO! NO!" she screamed.
    "Lizzie," her mother scolded. "That's not polite behavior."
    At that, the girl yelled even louder, "NO, THANK YOU! NO,

    It’s Monday and the beginning,
    Of the week that lies ahead,
    Just keep moving step by step and grinning,.
    By keeping positive thoughts in your head,

    Things change, and our bodies and emotions change. They can be small changes, or they can be BIG changes. But one thing is for sure, they are usually unexpected, while intended to help us move forward in some way. They help to shape who were are, and build our very foundation of our constitution - who we are - and our ability to face what is yet to come.

    “We can't be afraid of change. You may feel very secure in the pond that you are in, but if you never venture out of it, you will never know that there is such a thing as an ocean, a sea. Holding onto something that is good for you now, may be the very reason why you don't have something better.” ~ C. JoyBell C.

    "Don't be afraid if things seem difficult in the beginning. That's only the initial impression. The important thing is not to retreat; you have to master yourself."
    ~ Olga Korbut

    Set your sights today on one thing in your life that needs to change. Use mindfulness to help you stay in the moment, and help you take that first step and move forward this week to make it over the hurdle.

    Wishing you a positive and productive week.
