Carpe Weekend: Love Your Library
Most of us are familiar with the phrase ‘Carpe Diem’, or ‘Seize the day’.  Yet rather than seizing every day, often it is only on the weekend that we feel we have time to stop, collect ourselves and breathe.  This feature is designed to help with that: a small suggestion, tip or hint for you to try (if you wish!) over the weekend.  Maybe it will make a difference to your life, maybe it won’t, maybe it will prompt some other thoughts.  Enjoy - and seize your weekend!
This weekend, I’m taking my niece to the municipal library.  I love libraries: all that creativity, all that inspiration, all that knowledge, all for free!  As well as books, you can often get magazines, films and music.  If you haven’t been to your local one in a while (or ever!) then why not call in this weekend?  Pick up a title that you’ve been meaning to read for a while, or explore the shelves and try something completely different from usual book choice.  Whilst you’re there, check out the noticeboard for forthcoming events.  

You might be surprised as to what takes your fancy.  You could learn something new about your local community.  You may even discover something new about yourself.

Something From The Weekend

Getting really clear about what our dreams are - right down to the nitty-gritty of what they feel like, look like, taste like - can help us to see when they’re already staring us right back in the face in real life.  This is not about manifesting or the laws of attraction or cosmic ordering. It is much more concrete, tangible, real than all that. What I realised over the weekend was that simply having a strong vision of my dreams for life enables me to recognise certain elements that already exist. I don’t have to wait for some distant future; parts of what I dream of are already going on around me - and I can make choices that nurture and encourage these elements to flourish further. I named them and in doing so became alert to their presence.

Something From The Weekend

My Something From The Weekend lesson this time is best expressed by this quotation from Marcus Aurelius:

"When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive - to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love."
