. . . . . .╰☆╮ Ponder of the Day╰☆╮ . . . . . .

"What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

When I get a quote or an idea I wordsmith it into my own ponder. I started to incorporate the following into a longer piece and stopped. I gave considerable thought to it and decided to let it stand on its own.

*Bruce had me up to three miles a day, really at a good pace. We'd run the three miles in twenty-one or twenty-two minutes. Just under eight minutes a mile [Note: when running on his own in 1968, Lee would get his time down to six-and-a half minutes per mile].

So this morning he said to me "We're going to go five." I said, "Bruce, I can't go five. I'm a helluva lot older than you are, and I can't do five."

He said, "When we get to three, we'll shift gears and it's only two more and you'll do it."

I said "Okay, hell, I'll go for it."

So we get to three, we go into the fourth mile and I'm okay for three or four minutes, and then I really begin to give out. I'm tired, my heart's pounding, I can't go any more and so I say to him, "Bruce if I run any more," -and we're still running-"if I run any more I'm liable to have a heart attack and die."

He said, "Then die."

It made me so mad that I went the full five miles. Afterward I went to the shower and then I wanted to talk to him about it. I said, you know, "Why did you say that?"

He said, "Because you might as well be dead. Seriously, if you always put limits on what you can do, physical or anything else, it'll spread over into the rest of your life. It'll spread into your work, into your morality, into your entire being. There are no limits. There are plateaus, but you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.*

And in Honor of D-Day

During World War II (1939-1945), the Battle of Normandy, which lasted from June 1944 to August 1944, resulted in the Allied liberation of Western Europe from Nazi Germany's control. Codenamed Operation Overlord, the battle began on June 6, 1944, also known as D-Day, when some 156,000 American, British and Canadian forces landed on five beaches along a 50-mile stretch of the heavily fortified coast of France's Normandy region. The invasion was one of the largest amphibious military assaults in history and required extensive planning. Prior to D-Day, the Allies conducted a large-scale deception campaign designed to mislead the Germans about the intended invasion target. By late August 1944, all of northern France had been liberated, and by the following spring the Allies had defeated the Germans. The Normandy landings have been called the beginning of the end of war in Europe.

Morning Robb, oops sorry evening to you.
Thank you for your thought provoking start, and making us look inside and find the power we sometimes forget we have.
Thank you also for encouraging us to be the best we can be. ♥

I am a very easy going person. Morning works for me since morning is less than 2 hours away.

And I lost the bet. I thought I would get no reaction from you. Thank you.

@ Robb
No reaction from me ??!!** - I always react - maybe not always in written words - sometimes I am wary of going too far and treading on folks toes, but sometimes I do

Edited to change and to but

Lyn says:
I had considered that you - and possibly/probably a lot of the others - would read the words running and sub 8 minute miles and stop reading.

I think I understand the going too far and toe treading = not wanting to upset a person or other posters. Not likely to happen with me. Especially if it is an honest reaction.

@ Robb
I know that you are always ahead of the game but wondered if you are really looking forward to Friday since it is the end of the week or for some other reason - but the rest of us have to do Thursday before we get to Friday (check your linked pic)

Since it is Thursday for me already I have to get on that bike and pedal to work - hope to catch you all from there - (have to let you know that in the name of ...exercise... I am running late, yet again !!!

@Robb, all I can say is WOW. That is deep & very thought provoking. Made me think about how I am doing that & what might happen if I didn't. Scary.

I have been passing up those free books about Bruce Lee. I only knew of him as martial arts expert & movie actor. Sounds like I have been missing a lot & will have to check them out further next time some come up.

Lyn says:
Aside from a martial artist, and actor, Bruce Lee was a philosopher. His words of wisdom will make you think, and you'll find he used precision in the way he phrases his ideas. He was a leader in the personal development arena, and a true continuous learner.

"Empty your mind; be formless, shapeless - like water. Now you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup, you put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle, you put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend."

London 1841: a city on the edge. Corruption is everywhere. The poor are starving in the streets. The wealthy fear an explosion of anarchy and insurrection.

Amidst the turmoil, a wealthy merchant and his spoiled, beautiful ward hire former Bow Street Runner Jack Brodie to recover incriminating documents from the lawless rogues that robbed them. It is no easy task even for a man with Brodie's criminal connections because an old and vicious enemy has returned from the penal colony of New South Wales seeking vengeance for the slaying of his brother. As Brodie hunts through the thieves dens hidden in the rookeries of Dickensian London, it is only a matter of time before their paths cross and murderous violence ensues.

The Inquiry Agent is a dark detective tale set in the early Victorian period by bestselling author William King.

Fishing on Facebook: A Writing Yoga Memoir (Writing Yoga Memoirs)
Like millions of other men and women, renowned author and yoga teacher Suza Francina is a Facebook user. One evening she received a friend request from an Adam Johnson. Having known him years before, she accepted. And so began a roller-coaster journey of romance and intrigue.

Fishing on Facebook: A Writing Yoga Memoir, is the revealing recounting of that journey, drawn from Francina's practice of daily journal writing. "When I write, I feel freedom coming. The circumstances of my life have not changed, but the doors of perception open. In this way, writing and yoga are tools for `peeling the onion.' Both practices hold the potential to reveal a core of truth often hidden deep inside us. And although keeping a journal might not keep us from falling over the edge, it can help us land in a more honest place."

Riversong (The River Valley Collection) by Tess Thompson

When Lee Tucker's husband commits suicide, he leaves her pregnant and one million dollars in debt to a loan shark. Out of options, she escapes to her deceased mother's dilapidated house located in a small Oregon town that, like her, is financially ruined, heartbroken and in desperate need of a fresh start. Lee's resilience leads to a plan for a destination restaurant named Riversong, to new chances for passion and love, and to danger from her dead husband's debt as her business blooms.

Author Tess Thompson (formerly known as Tess Hardwick) assembles a colorful cast of endearing small-town characters and takes you on a journey that will make you believe in the possibilities of life - even in the face of overwhelming adversity and unimaginable grief. Lee Tucker is the kind of woman you find yourself rooting for long after the last page is read.

A surprising mix of romance, humor, friendship, intrigue and gourmet food - Riversong entertains while reminding you of life's greatest gifts.
