Let me share that July has been one CRAZY BUSY month for me. If you happen to work a position in which you must meet deadlines throughout the year, please know you have my support. sympathy, and empathy! I would like to thank you all for continuing to visit this site when Blog contemplations were virtually non-existent for some days this month. I am FINALLY able to pierce the work bubble that had me contained and write something out this fine July 28th morning. I will have to admit it will be short, however, hopefully inspiring or encouraging to keep all of you in discussion, debate, and fruitful contemplation among you and your friends and loved ones!
I am not sure how all of you handle, deal, cope, or manage your lives when it comes to work deadlines and also making room in your lives to express your creative talents, hobbies, and stress relieving activities. I am exhausted and know that come Monday morning, another project and another set of time tables and deadlines begin again. If you have life balancing mantras, catch phrases, words to live by, or points of wisdom to share, please let me know. I am not asking you to launch into competitive comparison by any means about whose deadlines are worse or who had it roughest in their career or current positions, please No! I am hopeful that you contemplate and share your views on the way out of stress and the exhaustive dull-drums of intense corporate world deadlines, or any work deadlines for that matter that weigh you and the human spirit down!
Share your stories and solutions among friends, and I would hope that one day the visionary inside you, moves you to share those thoughts, comments, and ideas with this site as well.
Well I need to begin to make some wrap up points and submit this Blogtemplation to all of you, so I will attempt to collect my last thoughts this morning. I have been in dire creative ambition to write and share so many thoughts that seem important, and yet the time has not been available, so in short bullet order, I have to relay MUCH BIGGER concepts in short concise phrases, please forgive me.
Here it goes:
- July 4th Independence celebration is an American tradition, though it doesn't have to be one day a year, how do you recognize the spirit of Independence and Freedom in yourself, in others, and in your community, and in other communities through-out the states, the country, the world!
- Family bonding and vacation time; How do you spend it, How do you enjoy it, What do you get out of it, What do you give into it, What memories do you keep from it, What memories do you hope to create with it, What do you value about it, and how do you capture it for future reference and contemplation?
- Connection with the natural world, the camping world, the exploration of the countryside, the challenge of your human body with living conditions set within some forest background and semi trail blazen earth. How long can you handle it, what food do you depend on, how much water do you drink, does it commune you with your spirit and your spiritual connections, does it commune you with your family and friends, do you sit around campfires, do you stare at the stars and the universe, do you see stars and heavenly bodies you don't see normally underneath the city and suburban lights?
- Relaxation through social events, relaxation through activity, swimming, running, hiking, physical exertion, and/or cardio aerobics, do you have a preference? What is your relaxation and Zen moment, place of calm, fortress of solitude, grounding event or contemplation of thought that brings you back to yourself and sets you back to balance and peace. What's your way back to your inner confident self?
With that I think I have tried to express the opening of several ideas I would have liked to contemplate with you and share insight. I hope to get back on some random track of regular interludes and connect with you all again.
Until then, please enjoy this Blogtemplation, continue to visit the site, and I hope you are sharing, debating, encouraging, and contemplating this and many more topics in the world and environments and people, places, and events around you in your own worlds.
Thank you for reading, take care of your creative minds!
