It’s hard to believe that summer is almost over! I hope all of you have been enjoying the hot days of summer and will continue to do so into the Fall. We do have a choice, you know - whether we view the glass as half full or half empty [or if you an engineer you might view it as too big a glass!]. it’s possible to complain about it being too hot to accomplish anything, or the constant air-conditioning [if you are lucky enough to have it] causing the utility bill to go way too high. But it’s also possible to focus on the pleasant sides of our summer weather - leaving the windows open at night, feeling lazy and enjoying it, or watching the garden grow [after weeding it, of course]. I’m sure you can think of many more positives and negatives, but those are the ones that come to mind for me. The choices we make about how we approach our world and our situation are ours, but they often control whether we are happy in general, whether we have energy and will to accomplish good things, or whether we feel good about our place in the world. And if you are one of those who thinks the glass is the wrong size, it may be that you just haven’t found the niche in which you can be of service, thrive, or feel that life is full and right just the way it is.

Because all of this is a choice, I wish you the right size glass that you view as at least half full of something that gives you purpose and delight!

In the meantime, may you

Go shining, Karen
