Focus

Standard

 

Focus is a remarkable two syllable word.   I first heard it in Kindergarten when I was told to focus on the blackboard, then in grade school when I was learning my multiplication tables.  It followed me to university and into the workplace.  Focus on marketing; focus on sales. Lost without it, I dutifully packed it up and took it home to focus on being a mother, a wife, cook and housekeeper.

This week I will highlight – yes, you guessed it – focus. I must confess that while I can apply the term to a variety of scenarios, there are times when I forget the power that resides in the word. Much like a sunrise is only a foreshadowing of the power of a mid-day sun.

When you arise

Standard

“When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive – to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.”
