Relaxation


Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are.

I'm still in a state of shock about this news. He was one of the best: analyst, journalist, person. On a lighter note, your picture makes me wonder if you've been in my yard...

I did not know who this person is but then I'm not really into the news world too much but either way, it's still sad.
Very pretty photo.

Good advice and well-stated. Once when I was having an especially bad week, I got a card from my husband. It said simply, "Inhale." The next day I got another card. It simply said, "Exhale." Good words to live by.

I think we will all miss Tim Russert during this election campaign. No matter what one's politics, one had to admire this man and his love for his country and his family.

I know exactly what you are feeling.
The sister of my wife died fifteen days ago and we are all very sad.

Seems as if everything is hurry up and do more. I don't think the Lord intended for us to live that way. We all need to slow down a little or maybe a lot. Nice compassionate post!

What's the saying Every cloud has a silver lining

Events occur which make you stop and think - what are the important things in life?

When things go wrong I ask myself what are the ten worse things that have happened to me?

I can't think of ten thinks. :)

Civilization is in a mad rush to the grave. Beautiful photograph and great advice.

Sad new Kerri... and I'm sorry to hear it... 10 years ago next month stress nearly killed me while I sat in my favourite armchair... I was just turned 40 when I had my first of 5 heart attacks. I did not even reconise I had stress.. to me it was just worry... I now still stress out at time but realise what it is... my post today and for the next few days shows one of the places I head for in times of Stress.. Great post. Wise Words

I live in the UK so I am not familiar with Tim's work. I do understand though that he was a much loved broadcaster and will be sadly missed by those whose homes he inhabited through his programme(s) and of course his family.

I have a high stress job too and this does make you think.

Lovely photo. The colour is wonderful.

Ash said...

Lovely image and message, Kerri.

Never a truer word Kerri.
I do my very best to enjoy life, Just in the process of taking my pension and then going back with less hours, gotta go on my holls lol.

Great post.

Visit my Colours of Vision.

Heidi said...

Thanks for the breather, Kerri! You do the same!

Point well taken Kerri. Slowing down and not trying to be the answer to everyones problems can help alot. That's my sermon to myself.
Pretty flower shot too.

I will miss his smiling face and his views - gone too soon.
My hubby was an engineer and my best girlfriends hubby was too. We used to both say - "It's the engineer thing" Since my hubs retired he is so unstressed it has been a blessing.
Hope your's listens to you!

And...this is a beautiful photo.

Andrea said...

I heard this in the news also. So sad. My husband has a very stressful job and it scares me of what could happen through so much stress. It is hard to tell a workaholic to slow down and relax.

Love your picture.

Mary said...

I was sad, too. So young. So talented. We need to relax. We are timeclocks ticking away...

Spend time outdoors with our cameras as often as we can, Kerri, and we'll be alright.

Paulie said...

I will miss him also. I listened to him on television every Sunday before I headed off to church. He
was younger than me. There was a nice tribute to him on this morning.

MedaM said...

This post is sad but with the great message of yours in the end. Thank you!
