Bucket Filling

-- Quote of the Day --

I used to believe I was going in the wrong direction sometimes… it is important to accept my life experiences and learn from them… accept your personal accountability for what happens and move on. …Instead of worrying about the fairness of it all we must learn to be a river – go with the flow. …We all have an invisible bucket – and that is a great way to picture our feelings. When our bucket is full we are having positive feelings joyful, happy, …grateful. When our buckets are empty we might be sad or angry or jealous or any of these negative feelings. We can choose to be a bucket filler or a bucket dipper. A bucket filler helps make other people feel good by the things we do and say; a bucket dipper does just the opposite. The best way to keep our bucket full, is to fill other people’s buckets. …we are in charge of our buckets, all the time.”

Today's quote came from an interview with Stacey on the Conscious Discussions radio show that aired back on June 24 re: Creating a Fulfilling Life

Speaking of bucket filling... Dave and I just spent a few days refilling our own buckets after some intense weeks of very thick schedules. We have re-opened the closed doors to our office and feel quite refreshed after our time away. Actually, I opened the doors yesterday to the office - but didn't have a chance to weed through the hundreds of emails and make it to the blog as well. Anyway, I'd like to thank all of our readers here and listeners of the Conscious Discussions radio show as well, for your patience while we took some much-needed time to fill our buckets. :)

Dave has completed the basic design and most of the layout, buttons etc for the newly designed website. Same address of course:  - We will be making more changes over the next week; mostly additions of updated photos, tweaking of text here and there, and affiliate and ClickBank links for our published works. We are also just around the corner from releasing Trash Talk - It's Easy Being Green e-book series... You can see that we have a section for our e-books and announcements on the site. Watch for the release of this series there over the next week or so.

Also, you can expect to see the Brummet's Muse Newsletter soon; as it will be released on Sept 1st to all our subscribers. Not a subscriber? It is easy to sign up - look for the purple box on this blog or on our site  to sign up.

I wonder if our readers here had a chance to read a previous post on e-waste... I just published a comment that one of our readers had on that piece, where they offered a URL. I followed that URL to a fantastic article, and a discussion that followed the publication of that article - and highly recommend it. Do scroll down and check it out.

Also, I wanted to give applause to some great efforts that deserve celebrating:
Congratulations to the US, where their paper recycling industry has reached a record high of 63.4% recovery rate! That means that of the new paper purchased in the US, nearly 64% of it was recycled. Fantastic contributions to a greener planet by Americans. ☺
