Tantalum

Tantalum

Tantalum is a word that represents the features of this page. Tantalum a rare metal of blue-gray material

 found by the seashore. I use the name Tantalum because I like the sound of it and because of its attribute as a non-corrosive substance, known for its ability to ward off negative elements to itself from its environment.

I use the concept of Tantalum to represent a mind space away from corrosive substances found in our perceptions. To redirect through reflection: a resting spot to consider yourself as more than what you  have come to believe about  yourself.

 For this Tantalum moment I suggest considering these words :

By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and Third, by experience, which is bitterest.”

In April, reflect and journal on how you want your life to play out. What’s you plan? - Strategic plans written out are a more in-depth equivalent to the To- do Lists. To-do List can get things done but either with no direction or just a grandiose expectation that blindly goes about achieving goals hit or miss.

Strategic planning focuses in on the major priorities, gasped in the portrait we paint for the future. It allows for short and long range planing and can take fly efforts. It creates a more enjoyably life journey as well as destination.

There will be hills and valleys and having gratitude for what you learn in both will be essential to your progress to alter, and change as you are on your path towards your goal. Noting the relevance of conscious and deliberate living choices while working your plans for the year. We need to remember to make time, if only minutes to Slow the paced, to carve out the alone time, for you to be with your self in a space that reflects, recharges, reassess, and reset where you find yourself, both in your  exterior and interior geographic landscape.
