PEBBLE

Perseverance is not a long race; it is many short races, one after another.

BOULDER

You can become blind
by seeing each day as a similar one.
Each day is a different one,
each day brings a miracle of its own.
It’s just a matter of paying attention to this miracle.
-Paulo Coelho, submitted by Cathie M., Madison WI

PONDER

Are you feeling overwhelmed by some huge project that is going on in work or school or life? Or maybe there is a burden you have been carrying around with you, something that has been worrying or frustrating or sad. I would like to suggest that you shift your perspective: instead of thinking of it as one big ole yucky, blechy thing, it is possible to view it as a set of small challenges. This week you could focus on just one part, and view it as a SHORT RACE that you can finish and finish soon!

As you cross your finish line, I hope that there is a small prize to accept (lunch with a friend, an hour of mindless tv or video game, your favorite dessert, etc.) and a sense of satisfaction in knowing that even if there are many more short races to run, you finished one.

On your mark,
get set,
GO!

-Paul
