Ripples v9.28: Opportunity!
7/9/07: a free weekly splash from Paul & The Ripples Project
We become happier, much happier, when we realize
life is an opportunity rather than an obligation.

The block of granite
which was an obstacle
in the path of the weak,
becomes a stepping stone
in the path of the strong.

Based on the number of “auto-reply” messages I received last week, I need to welcome many of you back from vacation, so WELCOME BACK! I hope you are refreshed and ready to dive back into work/school/life with renewed energy AND I hope you are ready to embrace life and all the STEPPING STONES that exist for you. Since we are now into the second half of the year, I suggest you find time this week to take stock of 2007. Perhaps you could generate a list of possibilities that might exist within a obstacle/challenge you are currently facing, and start climbing up those stones!
Speaking of opportunities, I need a few volunteers to test drive a re-designed website. If you are interested and have 10 minutes to spare, reply with TEST DRIVE in the subject line.
