So far, this year has had its fill of ups and downs. From bankruptcies, a bad economy, to Swine Flu (H1N1), we’ve pretty much seen it all in the first five months. We’ve witnessed miracles, from the U.S. Airways’ safe landing on the Hudson River, to the landing back on earth of the Space Shuttle Atlantis, following their 13-day mission to service NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope. Sports fans have had their annual thrill of watching the Super Bowl, March Madness, the Masters Golf Tournament, and the Indianapolis 500.
The National Safety Council announced that June is National Safety Month, and they are encouraging companies to get their employees involved in preventing injuries. Good information and free materials are on their website. Safety is always on our minds, and especially as the weather gets hotter, we must remember to use the proper precautions at work to stay as hydrated as possible, and wear hats, sunscreen, safety glasses with U.V. protection, and take all other measures to stay cool. At work or play, keep safety in mind.
June 14th is Flag Day in the U.S. June 21st marks Father’s Day, as well as the beginning of summer!
In thirty more days, we will be half-way through the year. Make the most of every minute of every day. Look forward to the good times and be thankful for what we have. Let’s all do our part to make the rest of 2009 a year we can look back on with pride. In closing, we’d like to share some ideas written by a 90-year old woman:
1. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else’s, we’d grab ours back!
2. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up, and show up.
3. Life isn’t tied with a bow, but it’s still a gift.
4. Don’t compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
