Last week one of my favorite thought leaders, Daniel Pink, turned me on to a free app that has had me smiling five times each day since I added it to my phone…. WeCroak. Five times each day it pings me me with an alert followed by a fantastic quote focused on remembering the temporary nature of life.
Here’s an example of a couple of the quotes which caught my attention:
He who is not everyday conquering some fear has not learned the secret of life. –Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves – slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future.”Thich Nhat Hahn
In the midst of a wildly busy day this app has brought an instant stillness, presence, and serenity to my soul. What a gift!
While getting ready for bed just before 8pm I realized I’d forgotten to bring my contact case. I sighed and was thankful to be so close to a shopping center which would no doubt have the style of case I was looking for. It was frustrating but I shrugged it off.
As luck would have it I happened to catch an extraordinary sunset as a result of my gaffe! Talk about mind blowing – my eyes struggle to look at this picture of it.
Sometimes life sends us on unexpected errands. Sometimes it’ll throw in the sunset it didn’t want you to miss. 😉
