The Magic ofrepparttar Night Sky By Mike Moore

I loverepparttar 123981 night sky. There is something comforting, mysterious and hopeful about standing under a canopy of swirling stars. Each summer I go camping alone in Canada’’s beautiful northland to satisfy a hunger for solitude, wilderness andrepparttar 123982 night sky. Away from city lights there is nothing more awe inspiring than a star studded sky inrepparttar 123983 stillness ofrepparttar 123984 wilderness. I usually set up camp beside a lonely northern lake providing me with a long horizon and an uninterrupted view ofrepparttar 123985 heavens. As darkness approaches I begin to sense an overwhelming closeness torepparttar 123986 mysteries ofrepparttar 123987 universe and a strong connection torepparttar 123988 source of all that is. I become aware of an alternate rhythm to life - a rhythm which is so easily lost amidstrepparttar 123989 frenetic pace of contemporary existence. Embraced by darkness, with stars too numerous to count and comforted byrepparttar 123990 gentle lapping ofrepparttar 123991 waves I begin to realize how much I miss living in a city with its incessant, invasive brightness. It is as if I am rediscovering an enormous part of a lost spiritual heritage.

Get Out, Get Noticed, Get A LIfe

“If you build it, they will come.” -repparttar voice in “Field Of Dreams” -

Works well inrepparttar 123980 movies, but in real life, it just doesn’t quite work out that way.

Business owners know it. They understand that once they build their shop, they need to advertise, tell all their friends, give out free stuff, go door to door with mailers, stick more of them on car windshields in parking lots, and even make crummy commercials on late night television just to getrepparttar 123981 word out.

Job seekers know it. They understand that when they want a change or need a new job, they need to advertise, tell all their friends send out samples of their work, write uprepparttar 123982 dreaded resume and cover letter to each possible HR department and even volunteer as an intern in hopes of getting a “real job” once that time is over.

But forget about our professional lives, what about our lives at home? We sit at home at times wishing for someone to come on by and offer us a life of our dreams. Whenrepparttar 123983 doorbell rings, too often it has been someone coming by only for our vote or for us to give them a dollar to help their school.

Because it has been of no real benefit to us inrepparttar 123984 past, we sometimes stop rushing torepparttar 123985 door every time it rings (or when opportunity knocks). In a related way, maybe we are so wrapped up in our life rut that we just don’t haverepparttar 123986 energy (physical, but mainly mental) to do anything about it.

‘Ya see, I would do more, but Survivor #4 is on tonight. It is supposed to haverepparttar 123987 immunity challenge to end all immunity challenges. So, ya see, I have to watch for that. Then comesrepparttar 123988 tribal counsel, then someone leaves, then it is time for something else to watch.’

Truth be told, our happiness in our personal lives works somewhatrepparttar 123989 same as for a business or when looking for a job. We must createrepparttar 123990 image in our minds that we are capable of being more than we are. We must know what it is we want out of whatever it is we do. We must build ourselves up by doing something. We must look around for opportunities and at least get a bit of information from them.
