Heart, Art, Laughs and Inspiration
Hello Awesome Readers!
Another Monday comes our way. At least we’re getting closer to fall and cooler temperatures — week by week!
I travel this Thursday to Sacramento to be with family and attend my nephew Jared’s wedding.
So looking forward to it. Hanging out and finding laughter with my immediate people/family. We know each other from way back in the day. HA!
I know one thing for sure — won’t be a dull moment.
I collected these fine 10 for today.
And The Important Things In Life is beautiful.
Thanks for being here today. Grateful to one and all.

THE IMPORTANT THINGS IN LIFE
A philosophy professor stood before his class with some items on the table in front of him.
When the class began, wordlessly, he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with rocks — about 2″ from the top.
He asked the students if the jar was full.
They agreed it was.
So the professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them in the jar.
He shook the jar lightly.
The pebbles, of course, rolled into the open areas between the rocks.
He then asked the students if the jar was full.
They agreed that it was.
The professor picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar.
The sand filled up the remaining open areas of the jar.
He then asked once more if the jar was full.
The students responded with a unanimous, “Yes!”
“Now,” said the professor, “I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The rocks are the important things: Your family, your partner, your health, your children — the things that if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full.
The pebbles are the other things that matter — like your job, your house, your car.
The sand is everything else — “the small stuff.”
“If you put the sand in the jar 1st,” he continued, “there is no room for the pebbles or the rocks.”
“The same goes for your life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for things that are important to you.”
“Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness: play with your children, take your partner out dancing, exercise, work in the garden, a project that needs attention …
There will always be more time to go to work, clean the house, give a dinner party, or fix the garbage disposal.”
TAKE CARE OF THE ROCKS FIRST. THE THINGS THAT REALLY MATTER.
