Like hourglass...

Think of your life as an hourglass.

You know there are thousands of grains of sand in the top of the hourglass; and they all pass slowly and evenly through the narrow neck in the middle.

Nothing you or I could do would make more than one grain of sand pass through this narrow neck without impairing the hourglass.

You and I and everyone else are like this hourglass...if we do not take [tasks] one at a time and let them pass...slowly and evenly, then we are bound to break our own...structure.”

Dale Carnegie, How to Stop Worrying and Start Living


I like the quote as I am now rushing too many things and do not take tasks one a a time.

Do take tasks one at a time and let them pass...

Do not stress your structure by overloading too many things at one go.

The company of someone close to you

This period of time, when I need company for lunch and other activities, I am grateful to have someone close to me, a sister, to be around.

I am used to doing things independently, and when I find it hard to do it when I have too much thoughts distracting my concentration lately, I turn to one of my sisters for support, and she is always there for me.

This makes me feel touched and gives me a sense of security and contentment.

Thanks to have her company during this period of time!

I am grateful for her time, her reassuring words of encouragement!

Part of the happiness of life consists not in fighting battles but in avoiding them. 

A masterly retreat is in itself a victory.

Norman Vincent Peale (1898-1993) American Methodist Minister

As it is, sometimes it is good to go away and do some travelling instead of fighting battles that exhaust your energy!
