Thank you Apple Private Browsing mode

April 2019 calendar
Eight months ago today we began jogging “one-mailbox-a-day”.

Thank you Apple Private Browsing mode. You provided relief from hassle, and frustration, the past two days.

This is a band-aid and not a solution.

Let’s not forget that.

And thanks also for the workout with patience. We may claim we are patient, but are we really?

Questions can call us out

Questions can call us out.

Am i the first GoDaddy customer to have the issues i’m having?

Why have we been working on this for two-plus weeks and still no resolution…not even a clue.

Don't Drop It
Don't Drop It

“The Juggling Act of Life”

By Erika Liodice

As we get older, life, it seems, becomes increasingly filled with commitments and responsibilities. Most days I find myself running from one task to the next: eating lunch in my car as I frantically run errands over my lunch break, squeezing in phone calls to family and friends during my ten minute drive to work, and agonizing over work assignments and deadlines while I sleep. My car is my virtual office, my Facebook page is my only connection to my loved ones and I tend to think of life in key strokes, wishing I could CTRL + Z (undo) my error in judgement the other night when I added too much detergent to the laundry and found myself swimming in a sea of bubbles. Sometimes it feels like my mind and body never truly rest. And I’m not even 30.

Former CEO of Coca Cola Enterprises, Brian G. Dyson, describes it best, “Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling five balls in the air. You name them – work, family, health, friends and spirit – and you’re keeping all of these in the air. You will soon understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. But the other four balls – family, health, friends and spirit – are made of glass. If you drop one of these, they will be irrevocably scuffed, marked, nicked, damaged or even shattered. They will never be the same. You must understand that and strive for balance in your life.”

So how can we all do a better job of maintaining balance in our lives? Here are a five simple rules I try to live by:

  1. Decide what’s most important in your life and don’t take those things for granted.
  2. Learn the beauty and the power of the word “no.”
  3. Respect your time; don’t waste it on things that don’t matter to you.
  4. Do your best and learn to accept when that’s just not enough.
  5. Don’t take anything personally.
