Wisdom, Humor, and Inspiration in August

 In no particular order other than the order in which they were taken 😁

I like time and life management things like this. "Set a deadline, the earlier the better." Get it done!

(It's me, John, and Sam! πŸ˜„πŸ¦‰)

The virtue and concept of chastity is essential and beneficial in so many ways, but it's been nearly lost and is often disregarded or derided in today's world, so I was really glad to see this article about it in The Epoch Times.

Deferring gratification can pay huge dividends later.

Indulging in pornography is definitely unchaste. I'm glad the author of this article acknowledged that. Forget Covid; porn is the real plague in today's world.

"Only the disciplined ones in life are free. If you are undisciplined, you are a slave to your moods and your passions." ... "There's much more joy and satisfaction in being the master of passions instead of their slave."

I need to remember this one for when I'm on the beach at the Cape and can dazzle whoever I'm with with my (borrowed) cleverness. πŸ˜† 

This is definitely me 😊

This is me too. "Being prepared is key to a life of self-reliance and personal freedom."

Me and John πŸ˜‚ He's gotten much better at tying his tie since the summer.

More self-discipline! It really is key to living a successful and happy life.

I love this! Self-discipline leads to good habits. I know this is true in my life (and I'm still working on it--there are definitely some potential good habits that are waiting to be disciplined into existence!). 

Let's not always leave that mint chocolate chip ice cream at the store though. πŸ˜‰


I really liked this article in The Wall Street Journal. What an empowering and optimistic message to take your stress and problems and turn them into growth opportunities for yourself. {In other words, the story of my life for the last few years!}

Radical acceptance of the good and the not-so-good can be hard but it WORKS.

"Acceptance is the opposite of getting stuck."
