    Acts of Kindness
    Acts of KindnessOn Friday, March 17, 2017, Marcia Turesky Rooks died. She had lived a wonderful life, and she died just six weeks past her 100th birthday.She was my mother.And while her death was a blessing, as she'd gone rapidly downhill after her momentous...

    Here is a poem I wrote last year for another occasion. I hope it brings you some comfort, Susan, as you ponder over your loss in the days and months to come.

    Grief never leaves us,
    She answers not our why's,
    She hugs us like a shadow,
    And refuses our goodbyes.

    She's there lest we forget,
    When our loved ones slip away,
    That their spirit lives in what we do,
    And everything we say.

    So sorry to hear about your loss, Susan. We have to let go of our parents sooner or later. Fortunately you got to keep yours for a good long time. As I watch my mother (my remaining parent) slowly decline I prepare myself for the eventual outcome. Many condolences to you and your family.

    @Susan Rooks sorry for the loss. An Aquarian, indeed she might have been an awesome persona with full of kindness and good acts plus doing out of the ways support to known and unknown. Thou shalt not grieve, we beseech thee O lord' to give thou strength.

    I'm so sorry for your loss @Susan Rooks. This is a great tribute to your mom and family. The irony of your parent's anniversary. I'm going to guess your mom was an awesome woman just like her daughter! It doesn't matter how old we are or how old are mom's are when they pass, we still feel like a child grieving the loss of our moms. Grieve when you must and don't beat yourself up over it when the tears may come flooding. They say tears are healing. I'm happy you had so much time with your mom!

    So sorry to hear of your loss, @Susan Rooks. Grateful that everyone came together and helped each other out.

    Reminds me of the quote, "They May Forget What You Said, But They Will Never Forget How You Made Them Feel".
    This is often attributed to Maya Angelou, but some say it was actually Carl W. Buehner.

    Regardless of who said it, perhaps you may reflect on how your mother, Marcia Turesky Rooks, made you and many others feel.

    #12 Yes...He has been reunited with my mom...She passed almost fourteen years ago and not a day went by that he did not mourn her...So I am happy for them both;-) Knowing and believing that makes my heart feel a little lighter.

    Sounds like your mom had a wonderful and very full life...Now reunited with her beloved too...May we all be so lucky;-)
    Next time you come this way, I'd love to meet for lunch or something...perhaps a walk around Fort Sewall with a stop at the Barnacle for the obligatory lobster roll;-) The summer is so beautiful out here on the edge of nowhere!

    #11 Oh my, @Cyndi wilkins! Who knew? I grew up in Marblehead and left it at 18, returning sporadically when I had to. Gorgeous town, out on the edge of nowhere!

    Interesting that you believe your dad chose his date; I will always think my mom tried to do just that, falling just a couple of hours short. But if there's anything to the idea of an afterlife, I know she's with my dad, and your dad is with . . . your mom?

    My heartfelt condolences for your loss @Susan Rooks....I had no idea our connection was so close...I live in Marblehead and I'm still in the neighborhood I grew up in;-) Such a beautiful town...We just laid my father to rest at Waterside Cemetery just after the New Year...I feel very strongly as well that he chose his "moment of departure." Had he left us any sooner, many holiday plans would have had to be rearranged...He would never want to be an inconvenience;-)

    #8 Loss is loss. Think of the way the death of celebrities who we have no actual reciprocal relationship with can affect us. It often startles us just how intensely we react. In some cases, the relationships that weren't especially close or part of our daily interactions can present surprising emotions, because facing this type of loss can cause us to put the focus a lot more on our own mortality - which will urge us to come to terms with whatever is not currently in alignment in our lives.

    So be kind to yourself. Talk with friends. Love your family.

    "If thoughts are negative and they become a little bit more negative everyday then something damaging might become catastrophically damaging in the future." - Excellent connection, @Ali Anani. This is an insightful post and offers a good dose of perspective that can be applied to the many tiers of life. Having found myself in the pool of negativity, I can attest to the ill effects of constantly swimming in its waters. Sometimes swimming against the tide can be exhausting and it may mean finding new ways to get to the other side. The same with our thoughts. If we continually think negative thoughts, then our actions and effects thereof may also be negative. But when we dip our toes into a new body of water and start to feel the positive effects of doing so, then we can slowly swim more comfortably and explore new shores.

    Time doesn't wait for us, that is for sure. And even the best-laid plans aren't always on solid footing. We have the ability to change and hopefully the self-awareness to be able to recognize when the tides of change are necessary. It can be a slow and arduous process, but like you've said "Remember what is small today and manageable could become huge and very impacting tomorrow. Don't wait for the tide of time to drown you." How true. Excellent insight, Ali. Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts and Deming's Funnel experience - very interesting.

    #47 @Paul Walters- very interesting idea- we may live the moment, but crowd our future. We see same thing happening everywhere. We may live the moment, but crowd our future. Yes, we may spend all our earnings today, but then we shall have our future crowded with demands that we can't meet. WOW! I feel this ideas can be expanded on a lot.

    #46 @Cyndi wilkins- so, based on your comment the supply and demand of time define the price of time. This is a special case as the supply of time is only 24 hours a day. So, demand increases and supply decreases from a fixed amount. THis is similar case to land. The supply of land is mostly constant (we may fill sea water to make more land) and the demand is always increasing. The result is bursting of land prices in many countries.

    @Ali Anani Once again a gem of a piece! After living on a tropical island for the last five years I discovered something from the Balinese. They live not for today but for the moment!!! Their philosophy is that , yesterday is gone and tomorrow is a mystery so live for the moment. All well and good and a philosophy I truly admire but perhaps the town planners should abandon this practise as with the increasing amount of traffic on the roads there is not a lot of 'forward planning' Oh well I guess we cant have it all!

    #44 Great observations are there in your comment. I loved the way you dear @John Rylance described the mirrors as possibilities of problems may attack us from all directions and the need to keep the mirrors clean. Yes, time doesn't move linearly if we consider it as a river.
    John Rylance
    24/02/2017 #44 John Rylance
    Tides ebb and flow, there are high and low tides, for this reason it might be a mistake to assume the tide of time is a constant forward movement. The flotsam and jetsam of life can stay with us, it may go never to return, or we may need to ensure we deal with it successfully if it does return. To pick up on your analogy of car mirrors, we need them all, problems or good things can come at us from any angle, so we need to see in all directions, so that we can embrace or reject them accordingly.
    Yes we can't go back in time, but we can (with rear mirrors) stop the past catching up with us.

    #42 @Jean L. Serio CPC, CeMA- your quote of the profound comment of Abraham Lincoln is spot on. It says a lot. Blindness to see tomorrow is a recipe for disaster on the personal and business levels is true as you rightly mentioned in your comment.

    Your comment, Ali, "If we only take the value of the present time things may look quite different from the future. When the future arrives it shall leave little room for correction" has value not only in our personal lives but in our businesses. Time after time we've seen companies planning only for profits today; failing to see the 'big picture' of tomorrow when those plans could eventually topple their organization. Abraham Lincoln said "You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today". As always, thank you for a thought provoking share, Ali.

    Drowning in the river of time
    As you go down
    You feel the need to go back up
    You realise the need to keep swimming
    You start swimming upward
    To stay afloat
    To enjoy the present time
    To plan for usefulness of the time
    Time available in the Now and the future.
    You see yourself drowning
    You identify what's dragging you
    Whats causing the weight
    So you shake it off
    You plan and swim against it

    Every day I send out videos and I absolutely love doing it because of the transformations we’re seeing from REAL people getting REAL results in their lives.

    But today’s video is going to be a little different.

    This is really a sort of a deep dive into what every ‘successful’ person has in common.

    I’ll give you a hint…

    If they’re ever ‘STUCK’... they have a way to get “UNSTUCK” real quick.

    This video s about how you can get unstuck by using a weird daily routine.
