Monday Mottoes – #13

camel-sea-level08People at work or in school are not the only ones hustling and bustling.  Visit any tourist site worldwide and you will find the pushers and the shovers.  We made our way to a camel outpost, manned by a bedouin in the desert, who happened to know Benedetto. 

As the two of them chatted in Arabic about friends-in-common, we could not seem to get rid of a few people who wanted to ride the man’s camel, lol.  They took photo after photo, when really, the guy just wanted to let our kids take a ride.  Eventually, the girls got on board.  Our boys never did.

Which brings us, in a roundabout way, to today’s motto:  “If you love the life you live, you will live a life of love.”

No need to push and pull.  Alright, maybe, if you’re going to miss the bus or train or plane.  But beyond that, most things in life will be there tomorrow.  And if not, then give them some quality attention today.

Cultivate joy, and happiness, and contentment in things large and small.  Smile at your children, give a colleague a pat on the back, don’t take your mate for granted.  Let love guide you into what really matters, and then radiate that love to others around you.

Happy Monday, everyone!
