Quote for today (and, indeed, for this time):

“Confront power with gentleness, humility, and kindness. But do not bend and do not turn aside from your direction.”

From one of my heroes, Dr. Richard Swenson, in his book In Search of Balance

Monday Neighbourhood

Happy Monday!!

How are you?!?  I hope that everyone is well!

I am shocked that I never thought of this before, but what better way to face Monday than with a shot of Mr. Rogers?!?!

EVERYTHING is a little more okay with Mr. Rogers!

One of my favourite magazines just posted an article, 10 Mr. Rogers Quotes You Need to Read. Not surprisingly, it is inspiring and soothing in equal measure.

Just one of my favourite quotes from the article:

“We live in a world in which we need to share responsibility. It’s easy to say, ‘It’s not my child, not my community, not my world, not my problem.’ Then there are those who see the need and respond. I consider those people my heroes.”

If you don’t have time to read the whole article, (it’s not long though) PLEASE take the 3 minutes to be transformed by Mr. Rogers’ acceptance speech from the Grammy Awards.

It might be the most charming 3 minutes you’ll have all week.

Sigh….. 

 

By any definition Fred Rogers is my hero.

Especially his own definition.

 

Be well. 

 

 

If you are not an American, or just not familiar with Mr. Rogers, here is a little detail about him. I don’t know how many of us fully appreciated him as children, but he contributed enormously to our lives. (Even if it doesn’t show just now! We’ll get back there; Mr. Rogers would be sure of it!) 😀
