own a seasonal business. I’m able to work during the warm months and not able to work during the winter. For many years this was my only source of income. So, I had to make my entire income from the spring through the fall. Once winter came I would not be able to make any money. My teacher used to tell me during the warm months, to make haste while the sun is still shining. In other words, do all the work you can while it’s nice outside and don’t have to worry about terrible temperatures. It took a while to learn this. I went through a few real bad winters not having any money. Eventually I learned to make haste while the sun is still shining and focus on heavily on work when conditions allowed and also use my time off to not only relax but devote more time to my other areas of interest.
This is what we must do in all areas of our lives. You have to get it while the getting is good and conditions allow, because we never know when we are not able to have the getting good. So we must definitely make haste while the sun is still shining.
Positive Application: Look at your life and ask “what time is it?” What things would you like to accomplish and see done? Now ask what season is it? Is it time to focus on school or time to work? Is it time to rest? If you have free time, ask yourself, “Am I using it to my advantage?” Make haste while the sun is still shining.

Every year I am amazed by Halloween Positivity. This year was no different. I witnessed people everywhere having fun. Many adults being creative in picking out and wearing costumes and going to parties to celebrate. And of course the celebrations for the kids is my favorite. My youngest son wore his costume both to school to a trunk or treat carnival where he and many other kids had a ball, laughing at each others costumes, playing, and just celebrating. Then was the grand finale, trick or treating the following day.
When we went trick or treating it was amazing. My wife and I went with my son’s friend and his parents and it was very festive. There were people happy and smiling passing out candy and wishing the kids and adults a happy Halloween. One guy even walked around the neighborhood passing out beer to the adults. Me, I just loved being out there with everyone and seeing so many people happy, expressing creativity with their costumes, and giving candy to the kids, and wishing one another happiness. What a good time and environment.
Positive Guru Reminder: All holidays can be a time for spiritual connection, positivity, and giving. We can start thinking today about the next holiday and asking ourselves What are all the ways I am going to give and share happiness on this upcoming day?
