EDIT: I may hit the 20,000 mark on my counter this week!
Last week was my "slug time" of my 2 week vacation... this week the "nose to the grindstone" part begins - work that's unrelated to my employment. Oy, I say!

The rest of this post goes with the post below. I will list one or two as the week goes along.

Significant events that moved/affected me in the last year.

Today marks the one year anniversary of the Tsunami that hit SE Asia. The devastation was on biblical proportions and the human animal was forced to realize and be reminded (again) that we are really not in control of anything... except ourselves. Yet within all of that, there emerged heroic stories celebrating the human condition... that our greatest accomplishments are the ones where we give of ourselves to others.

And now I have also been reminded how forgetful we can be. Even though the devestation affected the region of the world I was born into... I myself was only reminded of the Tsunami while watching the Sea Gypsies segment on "60 Minutes" last night.

Lessons in life

Issues from one aspect of our lives spill over to "infect" and affect all other aspects of our lives.
The adage "Don't take your work or problems home..." is easier said than done. If there is an unresolved issue it will permeate and color your behavior outside of the "situation". The solution? Try to resolve the situation as quickly as possible.

You cannot expect honesty from anyone unless they are honest with themselves first!
Everyone has their "best intentions" but until a person is prepared to be honest with themselves first, all those "best intentions" will not bear fruit. On several occasions I have seen people get caught up in the moment and promise the world... only to "flake off" seeing "it" through... whatever "it" might be.

    The lessons in life are so true ... I've learned a lot too this year, but still haven't been able to apply the lessons to my own life and the way I do things. Funny how that is huh? Oh well, another year is starting and another year to practice what i've learned :)

    the 1st year anniversary of the tsunami disaster was eclipsed by so many trivial things, wasn't it? everybody seems to be caught up in the comfort that is their own lives that they forget that there are people who are not as lucky as they are.

    the 2nd lessons seemed cryptic to me... but i think i got it somehow. and i totally agree with the things you've said!

    trojan - Thank you! Hope you visit again soon!

    goobergirl - Gigi, glad you are back... missed you!

    sasha - Yes, how soon we forget - considering the magnitude of the devestation. Glad you got the second... despite it's somewhat cryptic nature. :)

    My grandmother used to tell me that the road to hell was paved w/good intentions. I did not understand what she was saying then, but I do now.

    RoxiMoon - yeah, a little on the "heavy" and ponderous side, huh?

    kfarmer - I knew you would get that one.

    These are very insightful thoughts. I have a head cold right now, and I feel like I can't truly appreciate them because I'm a bit foggy---but I like what you said about being honest with yourself. So many times I've thought, "Oh, I can do x, y and z", thinking that yes, I would. But then I would not get around to it or find that I am too stressed to take on more things. So maybe this will be something I work on for '06! :)
