She stands high upon the bluff
a silhouette of one
lonely on the shore
It’s what she’s always done.
She is a lonely beacon
that beckons all to come
unnoticed by the multitudes

An angel to the sailors
on a bleak and stormy night,
the savior to the ships at sea
on a foggy night…

Try to calm your mind when you feel agitated. Mentally, take a step back and watch your mind, as if looking at someone else’s mind.Try to watch your thoughts during the day, as if they are not yours, without being sucked into them. Become conscious of the fact that you are watching your thoughts.
Enjoy your inner peace.

All of us are dealing with the constrained optimization that is life, attempting to maximize our utility based on parameters like career, kids, relationships, etc., doing our best to allocate the resource of time. Due to the scarcity of this resource, therefore, none of us can ‘have it all’…”
“Having it all is best regarded as a myth…. Each of us makes choices constantly between work and family, exercising and relaxing, making time for others and taking time for ourselves. Being a parent means making adjustments, compromises, and sacrifices every day…”
From ‘Lean In’ by Sheryl Sandberg
What are your choices, compromises and sacrifices?
The world is full of challenges, however with those come opportunity to learn, invent, discover and change for the better….
