We part at the crossroads,
You leave with your joys and problems,
I with mine. Alone, I look down the road.
Each one must walk one’s own path.
People’s paths come together all too briefly when sharing friendship, but that makes those times no less valuable. We must take advantage of support and sharing in a mutually beneficial way. Whenever we take from another, we should try to give back something. This is fundamental. No one should lean on another person, or expect another to carry them a long distance down the road. Friends should walk side by side for as long as their journey carries them, without becoming dependent on one another.
There should be no obligation. If I can help someone do something, then I should do so without any hesitation or expectation of reward or debt. If there is something that I need to learn and my companion can show it to me, then I should accept it in humility. No one “owns” knowledge. It should be freely shared.
Parting is inherent in all meeting. Nothing lasts forever. Transience is what gives life poignancy. Every person is responsible for himself or herself. There is no road to walk but your own

National Play-Doh Day celebrates a great childhood play toy.
Invented in the mid 1950s, it has entertained millions of children,
and allowed them to express their creativity. Play-Doh was created in 1955
by Joseph McVicker of Kutol Chemicals in Cincinnati, Ohio.
It hit the market in 1956, and has been a popular play toy ever since.
According to Hasbro Toys, the current makers of Play-Doh,
The story of PLAY-DOH modeling compound begins in 1956 when scientists at Rainbow Crafts, a Cincinnati soap and cleaning compound company,
stumbled upon a new use for the unique dough-like cleaning product.
The company realized this product’s potential as a child’s modeling compound;
and thus, the original, reusable PLAY-DOH compound was born.
The Benefits of Play.
While play is crucial for a child’s development,
it is also beneficial for people of all ages.
Engaging in play can add joy to life, relieve stress, supercharge learning,
and connect you to others and the world around you.
Play can also make work more productive and just perhaps, a little more fun.
All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy" is a proverb.
It means that without time off from work, a person becomes both bored and boring.
The exact origins of the phrase remain unclear, though it was recorded as early as 1659.

I shared the article "Living Out Your Vision" by Nicole Dieker because it struck a chord with me. Not only as I create my own work/life vision, but as a message I want to share with you as you grow your own business. As you find that small piece of your ideal life, we can work together to turn it into your own reality.
