December Quotes

Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold,
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.”

  • Robert Frost, Nothing Gold Can Stay

Inner Journey:

Capture your inspiration!

“Ideas can come from anywhere and at any time. The problem with making mental notes is that the ink fades very rapidly.”
— Rolf Smith

Insights and inspiration come to us for a reason. Don’t let them disappear on you!

When a great idea pops into your mind, write it down and capture it. Keep a mini-journal or piece of paper with you at all times.

Reflect on your insights. How might you anchor this great idea so it enhances your life?

“Everyone who has ever taken a shower has had an idea. It’s the person who gets out of the shower, dries off, and does something about it that makes a difference.”
— Nolan Bushnell

Daily Wisdom
December 13, 2021

“Enjoyment is not a goal, it is a feeling that accompanies important ongoing activity.”

-Paul Goodman

If we’re doing what we love, then we’re not really working at all. “Work” can be enjoyable. Look at all the joy we can get out of one day, from enjoying our homes, our meals, our family and friends, and our time spent in nature. This is important activity.

-Lissa Coffey
