Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 197

“Don’t watch the clock; do what it does. Keep going.” – Sam Levenson

Thanks for that Spidey!

It’s all to easy, isn’t it? 

To keep putting things off because the time isn’t right.

But if we constantly time check, we are wasting precious time waiting, and checking, rather than doing.

A clock doesn’t wait for the next hour to chime, it just keeps going, chimes, then carries on to the next hour…

I have decided I need to stop my procrastination, and virtual clock watching. I have to get this edit/rewrite underway if I ever want to see my book being published!

So… tell me, what do know you just need to do, not procrastinate over?

Have a peaceful Sunday Peeps  And enjoy your week! ❤ 

#WritePhoto – Calm

Sue’s #WritePhoto Prompt this week:

Calm
Serene
Ethereal
Crystal clear sky
A true autumn day
Water gently flowing
Lucious green banks beckoning
Offering a place to ponder
The mysteries of this life we lead
Meditation surrounded by nature

Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 139

“If a person’s basic state of mind is serene and calm, then it is possible for this inner peace to overwhelm a painful physical experience.” – The Dalai Lama

Perfect quote Spidey, form a most serene being too!

I am learning more and more that this state of inner peace is what gets me through on certain days.

But I Smile Anyway is my blog name, because I try to see the positivity in everything, and I feel that having a smile on my face allows me to think about everything with a brighter light.

There are days, and these days have been occurring more often in this academic year, due to my chopping and changing classes mid-week every week, and having some really challenging children to teach, that sometimes I close the door at the end of the school day and think I am ready to speak to Hubby Dearest about packing it all in.

Then I sit back, breathe, write it out, or speak to someone, and realise that once I am calm, things aren’t really that bad. There are folk out there who have my back, people who are happy to give support and advice, and that I don’t really want to quit. I was born to do this, and a little thing like an ‘interesting’ group of children will not get the better of me. I just need to think of other ways to deal with the issues that are arising…

So when you are in a fix, or a pickle, if things have got the better of you, give yourself time and find that core of inner peace. rethink your problems, and deal with them with a fresh, calm head.

We can all do this.

Have a Serene Sunday Peeps!

Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 138

“It’s OK to be a glowstick. Sometimes we need to break before we shine.” – Anon

What an absolutely fantastic thought Spidey has brought to the table this week!

I rather like the idea of being a glowstick.

The thought that something broken can give the greatest results.

There are often situations in life where you are pushed to your limits. You work yourself to the bone. You wear yourself so thin that that final straw easily breaks the proverbial camel’s back.

But this saying makes me think that being broken is not a bad thing. Being broken means that you get a chance to peer inside yourself, and find that inner strength and glow that you would have never realised was there, had you just plodded along.

So if you are feeling broken, if things haven’t gone the way you wanted, summon the strength to mend yourself, and allow that strength to carry you forward to bigger and better things!

Thank you, Spidey!

 

Have a glow-tastic Sunday Peeps!

“If you see something beautiful in someone, speak it.” – Ruthie Lindsey

 

Thank you, Spidey!

This seems to be an apt quote, after my Friday post on receiving compliments – found here.

If you see something that you admire in a person, a quality that makes them stand out, you should let them know (and I don’t mean in a crazy stalker-ish way, because you fancy them!)

It might be a smile that lights up the world around them, or a way with words. Maybe it’s the way they care for others, or how they are able to create masterpieces from little nuggets of nothing.

Tell them.

They may not know how to take it, but a compliment is something that is often looked back upon, and cherished.

Have a great Sunday Peeps!
