The man who wants to lead the orchestra must turn his back on the crowd.
There was a time I was in a position of leadership. I used to teach, educate, direct others. Things have changed and times have changed. I am not in a professional role of a leader, but my life can make me a leader without realizing it.
I interact with people, therefore without realizing it someone might look to me as one who could educate them, help them, guide them. That would make me a 'leader' without meaning to be. I am not seeking to direct anyone. I have me to direct and keep focused. I have so much to still learn. Thankfully there are many that I can learn from.
If anything I say, or do, is seen of value by someone, than I am the one who is richer. It helps validate me.

Happiness and sadness don't happen to us--they come from within. The story of your life will be written with or without your help. The next chapter is happening while you read this. Will you wait to see what it says later, or will you help write it?
If my next chapter is being written as I read/type this then I know it will be great. I have put forward today all my energies to enjoy life. I am lving as full as I know how. I am running my heart out, I am running for my life.
I'm not going to sit around and just let things happen, I am grabbing ahold of life and squeezing every bit I can out of it. I wasn't always like this, I sat on the sidelines and just watched.
Thankfully today I am not like that. I have a full ahd happy life, and that is what lies inside....a happy heart.

Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein
Yes I do have the same amount of time as all those great folks listed above. It's what I do with that time. I have a tendency to just piddle around with the time and before I know it, it's vanished.
Today I will put more structure into my day, allot the time necessary for those necessary things. Do what is most important and move on from there. Use that time wisely. That doesn't mean I can't have time for me. That is an important thing to not just work and do and feel left out of the picture. It is using the time wisely. Knowing when to stop something and move on. Give myself time limits for the job at hand. Not let my mind wander off and then realize that I've just spent more time on something than I wanted to. FOCUS is the word today.
I can get done all the things I need to do as long as I focus on them. It will be a busy day, but I can get it done.

A healthy body is a guest-chamber for the soul; a sick body is a prison.
How am I treating this guest chamber for my soul, this temple, this magnificent vessel called my human body? Am I doing kind things to it or abusing it with too much food, not enough sleep, driving it to stressed out condtion?
Just as the quote says at the top, I can create a prison or a guest-chamber, a temple! Boy what a difference between a prison and a temple! Filth, decay, stench, lack of freedom is what comes to my mind when I picture a prison. Dark, dank, hostile. YUCK! That is not where I want to reside.
Then I look at what a temple is; bright, light, richness, plush surroundings, clean, marble floors, walls, just simply beautiful surroundings. THAT is where I want to reside. Having the freedom to move about, to do, to see, to experience that which I want.
What is it that will make the difference where I reside?? Love and kindness! Loving myself enough to be kind to me. Doing what will benifit my body and feed my soul! Today I will be kind. Today I will love myself.
