A Few Nuggets of Wisdom!
Switching from "home mode" to "work mode" can often be a stressful thing. Did you know that according to the American Heart Association, in excess of 50% of heart attacks occur on Monday mornings. I believe this is due to the transition in getting back to our work life, which is often not the most pleasant of things.
As you prepare for the week ahead, here are a few nuggets of wisdom from some of the great minds throughout history:
"Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise." - Benjamin Franklin
"Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it" - Charles R. Swindoll
"We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give." - Winston Churchill
"The doors we open and close each day decide the lives we live." - Flora Whittemore
"They invented hugs to let people know you love them without saying anything." - Bil Keane
I hope that these inspirational thoughts will help guide you this week. The better, more equipped we are in our daily, professional lives, the better we are able care for our kids.
This week, let us each commit to having a productive one at work. And let us commit to becoming better parents - ones who are always mindful that providing for our families is the primary reason we make the daily sacrifices to go to work.
Have yourself a productive week!
All the best to you and yours,
The Upbeat Dad
