Joyful Monday ~ 20-Mar

“On with the dance, let joy be unconfined is my motto, whether there’s any dance to dance, or any joy to unconfine.”

– Mark Twain, humourist

 

My brother-in-law was recently diagnosed with terminal cancer. Yesterday, his daughters threw a huge bash for him and invited the whole town. There were live bands, good homemade pot luck, wine and beer for toasts, games for the children, and a lot of love. They danced!

Joyful Monday – 27-Feb

Years ago I had a Buddhist teacher in Thailand who would remind all his students that there was always something to be thankful for. He’d say, “Let’s rise and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot today, at least we may have learned a little. And if we didn’t learn even a little, at least we didn’t get sick. And if we did get sick, at least we didn’t die. So let us all be thankful.”

– Leo Buscaglia, professor/writer

Joyful Monday : 6-Feb

Cotton Fitzsimmons, basketball coach

 

Monday after Super Bowl. (Atlanta lost. Nuff said)

Some difficult/challenging things going on with my family. (Prayers)

But every day is a good day. And there is a reason to find joy every single day.

Joyful Monday : 30-Jan

 

Just play. Have fun. Enjoy the game.

Michael Jordan, basketball player

 

This week’s Joyful focus is admittedly biased. My NFL team is the Atlanta Falcons. We fans have endured agony and frustration over the past many years, but this Sunday, February 5, they are playing in Super Bowl LI.

As much as I want them to win, I want everyone involved to enjoy it. Soak up every moment, play hard, and have fun. It’s a joyful lesson for all of us … enjoy every moment.

Each Monday in 2017 I am going to post one quote as motivation for a great week for me and for anyone who follows. My focus is “Joy”!

I believe in having fun first, and along the way, if you teach people, if you influence people, well and good.
