A Reminder....

My mum sent this to me.
I'm sure most of us must have read this, but for those who haven't - I say read, and act on it,
and for those of you who have read it- It's only a Reminder :-)

The Mayonnaise Jar
When things in your life seem almost too much to handle,
When 24 hours in a day is not enough;
Remember the mayonnaise jar and 2 cups of coffee.

A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him.
When the class began, quietly, he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and starts to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.
The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured it into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.
The professor then picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with a unanimous 'yes.'
The professor then produced two cups of coffee from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar, effectively filling the empty space between the sand. The students laughed.

'Now,' said the professor, as the laughter subsided, 'I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The golf balls are the important things - God, family, children, health, friends, and favourite passions. Things that if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full.
The pebbles are the things that matter like your job, house, and car.
The sand is everything else -- The small stuff.

'If you put the sand into the jar first,' he continued, 'there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls.
The same goes for life.
If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, You will never have room for the things that are Important to you.
So...Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness.
Play with your children. Take time to get medical checkups. Take your partner out to dinner.
There will always be time to clean the house and fix the dripping tap.
'Take care of the golf balls first -- The things that really matter.Set your priorities.
The rest is just sand.

'One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the coffee represented. The professor smiled. 'I'm glad you asked'.It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem, there's always room for a couple of cups of coffee with a friend.'Feel free to share this with other "Golf Balls", I just did.

It's a new week, Let's put our "Golf balls" in place.

Deep inside of me.
I still have a cyberlife.

Moderating comments off my blackberry has been quite tricky, I receive mail, Read the comment, scroll the track ball to "publish this comment" after which the request goes through.
A few seconds later "This comment was successfully rejected " . Go Figure.

Still working on my new figure. Now I'm being extra careful so I don't end up losing too much weight. After all I am african.
To all interested parties: There is light at the end of the tunnel, you just have to start digging.

Christmas decors springing up. 'tis the season to be jolly, la la la la la la la la la. I wonder what this christmas holds.....I hear the shops calling my name :-)

So, I've had the crazy urge to drop my 9-5 and get a sewing machine! I have NO idea how to sew: but I want to learn so I can make my own clothes. Crazy I know. Or Not.
The back seat of my car has tons of fabrics, my notebook is full of sketches. And my tailor just became richer!

Ever wondered what "one thing" would make you a household name and a well known billionaire?

Bill Gates- Microsoft.
Oprah- TalkShow
Micheal (Bless him)- Music
Tyra- Next Top Model.
George Lucas, Steven Spilberg, Micheal Bay- Movies

I wonder all the time.
Do you?

Have a beautiful Week people: and touch a life.
