A collection of thoughts that can be opened to any page on any day to give ourselves a guiding thought for that particular day. And that guiding thought can help us in many ways. It may be a thought that opens our eyes to something new or something old that we take for granted ("I will notice the flowers"), it can guide our actions to help us to make positive contributions to the world ("I will spread encouragement"), or it can help us to be kinder to ourselves in the hope that in doing so, we can be kinder to others ("I'll remember that I'm a very special person"). All of them are focused on awareness, compassion, giving, appreciation, community, and many other topics that are found on the website Living Life Fully.

The Life and Times of Jean-Marie Seroney

The book - "Just for Today - the Life and Times of Jean-Marie Seroney" by Godfrey Sang concerns a Kenyan politician, Jean-Marie Seroney, who played a significant role in the movement for Independence in Kenya, and in politics during the first Kenyatta and Moa eras. Seroney died in 1982, and is almost forgotten - or at least ignored - in present Kenya. He is not alone: a question still begging, despite the introduction of Mashujaa Day, is who are genuinely the great people of Kenya's last 50-odd years. To remember them is not to hero-worship them: all heroes have flaws. The point is simply to recognise objectively those who have contributed to Kenya's distinctive political, social and other traditions. It was that ignorance that led Godfrey Sang to turn his hand to this history. He had heard of this great figure, Seroney, from a very elderly neighbour. To find out more, he researched the life and times of Seroney. Mr Sang has placed him in an important historical context, as a great Nandi hero and as a member of that generation that argued for Independence and negotiated hard over its future Constitution. He explains the ups and downs of a volatile, unlucky and sometimes unwise politician. Through the whole story comes Seroney's attachment to scholarship, the law, the Rule of Law, due process and constitutionality. He was an uncomfortable pebble in the shoes of all Kenya's political leaders, a reminder of the promises they seemed to prefer to forget as they walked to power. He was a living demonstration of the lengths to which the powerful would go to suppress dissidents. In all this, the question the perceptive reader will want to decide is whether Seroney was a great local boy from Tinderet, to be celebrated as such; or whether he transcended his regional and ethnic origins and became a national figure, whose achievements and failures can be assessed and valued by all Kenyans."

A Guide to Mindful Living Day by Day

We live our lives a day at a time, not in weeks or in months. Our daily actions determine our character. In this short book you will find a list of qualities, virtues, or what might be simply called decent actions. We would all aspire to be people who practice these virtues. Yet the circumstances of life, the pressure of activities, the arrival of an unexpected challenge, all seem to knock us off course. Days, weeks and even years can pass before we recover our equilibrium and finally look back to notice a life spent unmindfully. Then filled with a vague sense of regret, we feel we might have done much better. But there is no purpose in looking back except to examine and respond to the lessons that our particular life to this point has taught us. And so we look to the future. What is suggested here is not that we would try to become saints in a day. If we succeeded in that we would surely fall into the snare of pride, something those who have to deal with us would find even more obnoxious than our existing faults. We will work on an easier plan. The idea of this book is to take one particular quality or decent action and really try to put that into effect for just one day in the month. Some of the suggestions here will be found to be easier that others, none of us are lacking in all of these desirable characteristics. But on some days we will encounter ideas that we will find more difficult to apply. The force of long habit runs strong. But bad habits can be broken, and good ones can be acquired, if we try to practice with a degree of seriousness. So let us begin, taking one day and one positive action at a time. Here you have thirty-one ideas, one for each day of the month, thirty-one of them so you get a different good action to practice every day. For the most part our lives are lives of quiet application. We go about our business and we do our best. We may never have that once-in-a-lifetime chance to practice greatness in some overwhelming moment of opportunity. But the lives of all of us make a difference, each of our lives is unique in this amazing situation in which we find ourselves. The small daily gestures of goodness and kindness all add up. Here is an invitation to practice doing the decent thing so we can learn to respond with kindness day by day, week by week. We shall not pass this way again. May you find happiness today and every tomorrow as you take up this "challenge for goodness" and try to put the ideas contained in this little book into effect in your life.

Women, especially career women, are pulled in every direction. Demands of our careers, children, spouses, church groups, and extended family make us crazy with activity. We've been told we can have it all but we sure pay a large price to do it. We are so caught up in activity that we don't have time to breathe, let alone think about what is truly important in our life. Just for Today is written for the woman who does too much, who has too much activity, and who has possibly let the urgent blind her from what is important.

Jimmy Lee Snow, A.K.A. Bobby Williams, is not just your average bank robber and jewelry thief; he is also a highly skilled and somewhat lucky escape artist. As he narrowly frees himself from a maximum-security institution, for a second time, he meets some interesting characters along the way that advertently or inadvertently aid in his freedom. Once on the run, he certainly breaks the law to acquire cash, a car and a new identity. Because he’s oddly likable and not really violent, you seem to root for this lawbreaker, despite the fact you know he deserves to be caught and put back into the system. As you read further, you know Jimmy Lee isn’t your typical criminal. One of the many characters he encounters along the way is a hooker. Yet the only thing he wants from her is a new identity. This would normally be quite odd coming from a guy who just left prison after ten years! He then picks up two runaways and convinces them to go back home, where he even funds the bus ride. This begins to show Jimmy Lee’s odd sense of integrity. (By the way, we soon find out why he was “saving himself.”) Part two begins with his true passion; Veronica Lin Brooks, a teacher and soon-to-be partner on the run. The back story is interesting and seemingly unbelievable at times, but the reader can certainly see her attraction to this likable escapee. As the adventure unfolds you find yourself wanting to lecture her and root for them, all at the same time. As the FBI and detectives search for them, you can feel all their desperation and exhaustion. It finally concludes with an unexpected ending, but stranger things have happened.
