“Don’t live the same day over and over again and call that a life.” ~ Germany Kent
I’m fortunate enough to work for a company that allows me to work from home when I want and as often as I want. This luxury has been a God send for the past 2 weeks. I’ve been able to deal with a lot lately and my only comfort was locking myself in my room hoping it will somehow sort itself out. But we all know life doesn’t work like that.
“We need never be ashamed of our tears.” Charles Dickens.
We all feel sad, stressed, overwhelmed, scared, and frustrated at times but rarely do we openly choose to express them through crying. Instead we are made to find other ways of expressing those emotions because crying is often seen as a sign of weakness. Why is that?
“Distracted from distraction by distraction” – T.S. Eliot.
We all have a love hate relationship with social media, right? One minute it’s the best thing since sliced bread, the next it’s the biggest pain in the butt. As useful as social media can be in our everyday life, it can soon turn into something negative if used in an unhealthy way. When it does, it’s time for a detox.
“Love yourself enough to set boundaries. Your time and energy are precious. You get to choose how you use it. You teach people how to treat you by deciding what you will and won’t accept.” ~ Anna Taylor/ There comes a time where you need to realise you can’t please everyone and do everything. This goes for the work we do in church too and here is why.
“If one’s different, one’s bound to be lonely.” ~ Aldous Huxley.
We spend more time at work than we do at home yet for some of us, the workplace can be the most loneliest place to be. Is camaraderie and social connection a key to workplace satisfaction and happiness?
