Knowledge is power.

It’s Friendship Friday!  This is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward.  I firmly believe that in order to give back we need to have knowledge which turns to wisdom.  I continuously read to keep myself on top of what is going on.

Recently I came across an interesting article in Success that lists out ways to be extraordinary.  Give it a quick read and maybe you will get some new ideas on how to give back.

Sometimes failure brings rest.

It’s Sabbath Sunday!  Have you ever been so stressed about something that finally coming to the end of it is a relief?  Whether you succeed or fail you are just glad it is over.  And then you seem to sleep for days to get over the ordeal.

This is how it is in my home with my daughter.  Every time there is a big test at school, drama with a good friend, or a competition for band she gets a little on edge.  Once the ordeal is done she is just exhausted.  She seems to sleep for days on end.  After a day or two then she is back to “normal”.

So what are you stressing about?  What’s just finished that you might be mentally or physically exhausted over?  How do you process what just happened so you can continue?  For me, the answer is usually to create.  This allows me to check out.

Happy Crafting!
