Nate's Monday Morning Message

by Nate Martinez

Nate's Monday Morning Message

Should auld acquaintances be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintances be forgot,
And auld lang syne!

For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne.
We’ll take a cup o’kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.

For auld lang syne.

Now that you are humming along with the traditional New Year’s Anthem, welcome to Nate’s Monday Morning Message, and a Happy New Year to you! This song evokes a multitude of feeling for me…sadness as we say goodbye, excitement as we welcome the unknown, humility as we reflect on our blessings and gratitude for the family and friends that surround us. The New Year offers us an opportunity to dream bigger. It is a clean slate; an opportunity to start living the life we deserve. As you move throughout this week, I want to challenge you to not only write down your New Year’s Resolutions, but share them with an accountability partner…if you don’t have someone you can share with, then send them to me. Written goals have a better chance at becoming a reality when written down…and an even better chance when shared. What does 2016 look like for you? Let’s make it a great week!

P.S. Go Cards!!!

A Long Time Ago There Was a Great Shah

A long time ago there was a great shah. He ordered to build a beautiful palace which had many wonderful things in it. Among other curiosities in the palace there was a hall, where all the walls, the sealing, the door and even the floor were made of mirror. The mirrors were so clear and smooth that visitors didn’t understand at once that there was a mirror in front of them – so accurately the mirrors would reflect the objects. Moreover, the walls of this hall were made in a way that they created an extraordinary increased echo.

Once, a dog ran into the hall and froze in surprise in the middle of the hall, a whole pack of dogs surrounded it from all sides, from above and below. Just in case, the dog bared his teeth- and all the reflections responded to it in the same way. Frightened, the dog frantically barked – the echo imitated the bark and increased it many times. The dog barked even harder – and the echo was keeping up. The dog tossed from one side to another, biting the air- his reflections also tossed around snapping their teeth.

In the morning, the guards found the miserable dog, lifeless and surrounded by a million reflections of lifeless dogs. There was nobody, who would make any harm to the dog. The dog died by fighting with his own reflections.

The world doesn’t bring good or evil on its own. Everything that is happening around us is the reflection of our own thoughts, feelings, wishes and actions. The world is a big mirror.

Nate's Monday Morning Message

by Nate Martinez

Nate’s Monday Morning Message

Welcome to Nate’s Monday Morning Message…this weekend we attended a memorial service for a dear friend and coworker. As I mingled with his friends and family I was touched by the love and support that I witnessed. This time of year can be challenging for many reasons, but to lose a loved one…it reminds me that every moment counts. During the holidays, it seems like we are in a mad rush and can’t wait to get through the season. This year, I’d like to challenge you to slow down, call an old friend, brush off your Grandma’s favorite recipe…take an extra few minutes to cherish what is special about life, and the beauty that surrounds us. Let’s make it a great week!

WORDS OF INSPIRATION

“At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.” – Albert Schweitzer

“There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.” - Edith Wharton

“Christmas is the spirit of giving without a thought of getting. It is happiness because we see joy in people. It is forgetting self and finding time for others. It is discarding the meaningless and stressing the true values.” - Thomas S. Monson

Nate's Monday Morning Message

Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to this week’s edition of Nate’s Monday Morning Message…I trust that you are enjoying the holiday season so far! The New Year is right around the corner and this is a great time to begin thinking about your 2016 goals. All of us at one point in time have set a New Year’s resolution, or in other words a goal for the New Year…such as joining a gym in an effort to lose weight, or saving more money or finding a new job. If you plan to set some new goals for yourself in 2016, try using the S.M.A.R.T. system to help you get there…

Make your goals SPECIFIC: be crystal clear with what you want to accomplish. Your goals need to be MEANINGFUL: a goal needs to be personal and important to you. Know why you want to do it before you decide to make it a goal. What ACTIONS do you need to take in order to accomplish your goals? And lastly, your goals need to be TIME-BOUND, or in other words when do you want to accomplish them by?  

I hope you find these tips helpful…let’s make it a great week!

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER

A Story About the Sense of Time…

Once, an old man and a young man were sitting on the shore of a wild and stormy river.

“Master,” the student asked, “why does the time flow straight, but always ripples, either slowing down to a complete stop, or racing like a cow with a thistle under her tail?”

The teacher looked at the seething water and answered:

“You see there are a few large stones in the river and a lot a small pebbles. Imagine that the river is your life. If you will only rejoice over big occasions: about your wedding that will happen next month, that after one year you will have a son, that after five years you will be able to start your business, then you will cross your life in a few jumps, like jumping from one stone to another. If you will move in small paces over the pebbles, taking joy in small things: a sunny day, the beauty of autumn forest, a good conversation, later looking back at your life you won’t see ten big stones, on which you jumped, but lots of your own traces, every of which you will be able to remember with a happy smile. And you will see that the road that you have crossed is much longer.”

“But teacher, when I love, do the work that I like, talk with a friends – the time flies fast, but the same time drags so long when I’m hurting, when I’m afraid and alone.”

“You see,” the old man answered wistfully, “this is what it should be. When we are unhappy, we don’t live but exist. During it, the time lies still in our wallets, and only for our happiness we pay the ringing coin of time, that we still have left.”
