TAKE TIME

Take time to think – It is the source of all power

Take time to read – It is the foundation of all wisdom

Take time to play-It is the source of perpetual youth

Take time to be quiet-It is the opportunity to seek God

Take time to be aware-It is the opportunity to help others

Take time to love and be loved-It is God’s greatest gift

Take time to laugh-It is the music of the soul

Take time to be friendly-It is the road to happiness

Take time to dream-It is what the future is made of

Take time to pray-It is the greatest power on earth

Take time to give-It is too short a day to be selfish

Take time to work-It is the price of success

Today, take time, or rather make time for what’s really important in your life. Remember to share a smile, give a hug, hold the door open for another person, be courteous when driving, call someone you haven’t talked to for awhile, write a letter to a loved one, and tell those close to you that you love them. Life is too short to go around living it with anger or hatred.

  1. Hi Barbara,

    I liked almost all the posts of your blog and I am planning to start my own blog, all thanks to you, you served as a source of my inspiration for blogging.

    So, for more insight about your blogging experiences I am following your blog by reading all your archived posts, and they are worth giving a reading.

    I hope that I will be able to make a nice blog. :)

        Hi Barbara,

        I will surely ask any query that I will have, I have considered you my mentor. :) Because you started blogging the way I did that is with no know-how…. and also for the reason to pursue what you like… not for making money… :)

        God Bless.

          Hi Saurabh,

          Oh my gosh, I hope I can live up to your expectations. :)

          You know, when I first started blogging, money was part of the equation, than I found I loved blogging and the community that forms around blogs so much, money left the picture.

          That said though, with my next project (which is still under construction) you’ll see what ideas I’ve come up with to not only continue to do what I love, but to hopefully turn blogging into a career. Wish me luck. :)
