Choose life. Life is wonderful.

 For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

The school holidays are passing quickly. I have a large unfinished back room and P:-) has been helping me clear it. It leaks terribly and needs lining and P:-) is going to do this for me. It has become a type of storage room for school stuff and craft stuff mostly and much of it needs to be culled.

I have been made redundant from a teaching position and will need to sell my house and move somewhere smaller. This has made me re-frame my life perspective. It is very exciting in many ways.At this stage I plan to retire. I am 58 and can't see myself obtaining another teaching position at my age, in this area. But I do not intend to retire from life or from possibly setting up a small business in something I am interested in.

Number 4 in the Keys to the Heart Series :

What are your values?

My values are based on Christian values. They can all be summed up with the Golden Rule - do unto others as you would have the, do unto you. I think many of the problems of the world could be solved if we all lived by this rule.

I believe in being kind to animals, and I must admit while I eat a mostly plant based diet I am not vegetarian but do buy free range products.

 I believe we should be considerate of the environment.

I needed to pop down to school to lock up for a colleague and was impressed by the callistemon tree which was in flower.

On Tuesday P:-) and I had coffee at  Wollongong Harbour (also known as Belmore Basin) with Mum, my daughter J, and my daughter R and her partner B. It was a beautiful spring day and the Harbour looked very pretty.

It was good to get together. I usually try to organise something in the holidays. Everybody seems to be so busy much of the time.
