Happy (almost) Spring 2013!

7 Mar

I realized this morning over coffee and my NYTimes, that somehow the calendars’ reached March 7 and there is a glaring lack of blog’s so far in my 2013 movie. There are heaps of things and topics to write about…the whole “new year-new you” healthy blah-blah-blah, the NRA’s woeful inability  to discern the difference between musket entitlement and AR- toting cowboys,  the President’s allergy to budgets, and the revelation that sugar, like sex, sells$!  But really, do you want me to pile on? Just wake your butt up a little earlier and do what I do…read the papers and watch Morning Joe.

So W.A.I.T.? Why am I talking? (FYI this, along with “don’t make up nicknames for your direct reports”, was the best tip from my last executive job coach.)

I’m talking because I have something valuable to say, or full disclosure, allow me to share a favorite new quote I’m stealing from a greeting card I bought at the farmer market last Saturday: ” Did you ever stop to think and then forget to start again?” (A.A. Milne 1882-1956). I’ve decided I  love, love that quote, and am proclaiming it my mantra for Spring. Yes, we all need to saddle up and engage life, but we also need to calm down, be present, do something real, add value and don’t over-think everything damn thing. With my health coach hat on I offer this: sleep more, eat clean, move as much as you possibly can, and turn off your digital friends when in the company of real ones. In short, do more–think less.  Ahh…bring on Spring.

    I LOVE your post, Suzy! Hits home for me and is my mantra for this year also – move more,eat clean. But also – love more freely and share it with others. Life is short, and we’re only here once!
    So, to that end – love to you, friend!:)

    Saddle up is right- time is moving so fast, the idea of slowing down and taking time for me is such a good message for me this month- thank you
