Thoughts for today, #370 …. “Think Outside the Box?”!!


Box

~~April 20, 2016~~ 

NO BOX REQUIRED

Or as we know it … think outside the box

Thinking outside the box (also thinking out of the box or thinking beyond the box) is a metaphor that means to think differently, unconventionally, or from a new perspective. This phrase often refers to novel or creative thinking.

The term is thought to derive from management consultants in the 1970’s and 1980’s challenging their clients to solve the “nine dots” puzzle, whose solution requires some lateral thinking.

The catchphrase, or cliché, has become widely used in business environments, especially by management consultants and executive coaches, and has been referenced in a number of advertising slogans.

To think outside the box is to look further and to try not thinking of the obvious things, but to try thinking of the things beyond them.

PERFECT PLACE FOR DOWN TIME 

ham·mock

noun
a bed made of canvas or of rope mesh and suspended by cords at the ends, used as garden furniture or on board a ship

The best place to have a hammock is on the coastline of Puerto Rico, under a canopy of greenery, palm trees and lulled by the sound of the ocean waves crashing upon the sand very close to your feet.

Been there … love it!!

SEVERAL DAYS OFF 

There comes a time, in this hurried life we life, that the need to disconnect takes over.

Family life, personal life, emotional and spiritual life needs recharging.

I’ll be offline for a few days trying to do so .

You know how hard it is to stay away.

I may reblog some posts that may come my way.

I won’t be posting my usual one.

I assure you, I will be back.

Hoping, renovated ….

In the meantime, keep down the fort.

I will surely miss y’all!!

WHAT IS LEFT BEHIND 

Leave only footprints in the sand …

“It is inevitable that I will leave a legacy simply because I cannot walk through life without leaving footprints as I walk. Therefore, I would be wise to consider the path before I make the prints.”

JUST TAKE ME …. (THERE)

Take me now, I am yours forever
I’ll be your light, your perfect saver
Don’t be afraid, I will hold you, dear
Take me, hold me if you really care.

Take me now, my whole life can be yours
I will go with you, that’s my real course
Use me, feel me, I don’t need a choice
Your fall, my fall, we shan’t make it worse.

Take me now, I am yours forever
Just hold me tight, with strength and power
I don’t want to live without you here
Wherever you are, just take me there.

I’ll be the wind beneath you, my dear
Against all odds, I’ll be there, I swear
Take me now, I am yours forever
Wherever you are, just take me there …

WAITING … ONE MORE DAY

We are saying good bye to the year 2015.

It’s been a very important one, as they all are,in many ways.

Think about personal accomplishments, personal losses, happy moments, sad moments. Yet, they are all part of each individual’s life. Each event shaped us to what we are today.

The new year is always a new beginning.

“Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.”

A dear blogger friend taught me this concept.

You can find Michelle here: http://mchelsmusings.wordpress.com/

~IN HER OWN WORDS~

IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”

Let Every Day Be Christmas
Christmas is forever, not for just one day,
for loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away
like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf.

The good you do for others is good you do yourself.

Did you know that this Labor Day is the 120th anniversary of the national celebration? Former President Grover Cleveland signed legislation in 1894 making Labor Day a national holiday.

I wasn’t going to write any post about Labor Day today. There are plenty out there. However, I ran into the information above ….. 120th anniversary of such an important day!

As with many holidays, the main thing is getting the day off, celebrating the beginning or ending of summer, going to the beach, the ever present BBQ. 

Usually there is so much more than that and how easy we forget!

Labor Day in the United States is a holiday celebrated on the first Monday in September. It is a celebration of the American labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of their country.

Labor Day was promoted by the Central Labor Union and the Knights of Labor, who organized the first parade in New York City. After the Haymarket Massacre, which occurred in Chicago on May 4, 1886, U.S. President Grover Cleveland feared that commemorating Labor Day on May 1 could become an opportunity to commemorate the affair. Thus, in 1887, it was established as an official holiday in September to support the Labor Day that the Knights favored.

The equivalent holiday in Canada, Labour Day, is also celebrated on the first Monday of September. In many other countries (more than 80 worldwide), “Labour Day” is synonymous with, or linked with, International Workers’ Day, which occurs on May 1.

LD

But the Labor Day holiday has a storied past, one of violence and celebration, that’s embedded deep in the history of the American labor movement. And while it has spread around the world in different forms, Labor Day has distinctly American roots.

When did Labor Day begin?

The modern holiday is widely traced back to an organized parade in New York City in 1882. Union leaders had called for what they had labelled a “monster labor festival” on Tuesday, Sept. 5, according to Linda Stinson, a former historian for the Department of Labor (the idea for a general labor festival may have originated in Canada, which today also celebrates “Labour Day” on the first Monday in September). Initially that morning, few people showed up, and organizers worried that workers had been reluctant to surrender a day’s pay to join the rally. But soon the crowds began flowing in from across the city, and by the end of the day some 10,000 people had marched in the parade and joined festivities afterward in what the press dubbed “a day of the people.”

When did it become an official holiday?

The practice of holding annual festivities to celebrate workers spread across the country, but Labor Day didn’t become a national holiday for more than a decade. Oregon became the first state to declare it a holiday in 1887, and states like New York, Massachusetts and Colorado soon followed suit. Under President Grover Cleveland, and amid growing awareness of the labor movement, the first Monday in September became a national holiday in 1896.

L22

Why is it on the first Monday in September anyway?

Labor union leaders had pushed for a September date for the New York demonstration, which coincided with a conference in the city of the Knights of Labor, one of the largest and most influential of the unions. The first two New York City Labor Days took place on the 5th of September, but in 1884, the third annual New York City Labor Day holiday was scheduled for the first Monday in September, and that date stuck.

~~The History behind Labor Day~~

~Published on Sept 3, 2012~

Labor Day is an American federal holiday observed on the first Monday in September (September 3 in 2012) that celebrates the economic and social contributions of workers. In 1882, Matthew Maguire, a machinist, first proposed the holiday while serving as secretary of the CLU (Central Labor Union) of New York. Others argue that it was first proposed by Peter J. McGuire of the American Federation of Labor in May 1882, after witnessing the annual labor festival held in Toronto, Canada.

Oregon was the first state to make it a holiday in 1887. By the time it became a federal holiday in 1894, thirty states officially celebrated Labor Day. Following the deaths of a number of workers at the hands of the U.S. military and U.S. Marshals during the Pullman Strike, the United States Congress unanimously voted to approve rush legislation that made Labor Day a national holiday; President Grover Cleveland signed it into law a mere six days after the end of the strike.

The September date originally chosen by the CLU of New York and observed by many of the nation’s trade unions for the past several years was selected rather than the more widespread International Workers’ Day because Cleveland was concerned that observance of the latter would be associated with the nascent Communist, Syndicalist and Anarchist movements that, though distinct from one another, had rallied to commemorate the Haymarket Affair in International Workers’ Day. All U.S. states, the District of Columbia, and the territories have made it a statutory holiday.
