I have come to fall in love with teaching in Catholic schools. What are YOU in love with?...

"Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, than falling in love in a quite absolute, final way. What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you will do with your evenings, how you will spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything." - Pedro Arrupe

The 2-Way

This week I was reminded that there are always two ways to look at something...

(really bad) traffic -
     Choice A = This sucks and it shouldn't take over 6 hours to get home
     Choice B = Traffic's bad, but I can't control it...plus, I am coming off a family vacation, which not all people get to enjoy, so I'm pretty lucky.

loud pounding while getting a new roof installed -
     Choice A = My head hurts SO much, I just can't take the high-pitched noise
     Choice B = I have a roof over my head and a place to call home

lack of internet access -
     Choice A = How on earth can it take this long to get into Gmail?
     Choice B = I don't need to be piddling around on the internet - spending time with a good book or with my family is time better spent

Choice B looks like the better thought each time - less stress, more optimism...

The glass if half full, my friends. Cheers to the week ahead!
