Hold On

This is a nice, inspiring quote which I stumbled upon which I want (and maybe even need) to go back to every now and then.

Hold on to what is good, even if it is a handful of earth.
Hold on to what you believe, even if it is a tree which stands alone.
Hold on to what you must do, even if it is a long way from here.
–Pueblo Verse

The Smiley

This is somewhat connected to the post on text language some posts back. I just realized, as I was responding to an office email a while ago, what effect texting has on my other means of correspondence.

I noticed, how even as I write emails, it has been a habit to include smileys - variations of it even [ :) or =) ] - as I type. And I realize how I seem to have been using smileys to the point of making it into a punctuation mark of sorts. Not only that, but I actually cringe at the thought at having to erase some of them - or Egad! all of them! - because it takes out the smiley emotion I put in writing the missive.

Interesting how such habits just creep in to other facets of your life... or maybe it's just me.

Some are just jobs, others are actually a lifestyle. Mine seems to have to be a lifestyle.
Sadly, I realize, I’m not sure if it is the lifestyle that fits me. I just have a little dilemma in finding that it seems I’ve been led to this kind of lifestyle which I thought I wanted but now am not sure if is something I’m meant for…. Now isn’t that strange? or disturbing?.... :o
