Q = Quality and Quantity


           “It is quality rather than quantity that matters.”                      Seneca The Younger

“ Less is more.”  Robert Browning

“Little and good is twice good.”  Baltasar Gracian

One thing I have noticed about life is that enjoying quality in life is critical.  If you don’t enjoy life now, it may be too late if you wait!



Defining quality in life is a tough one!  What quality is to you or to me may be night and day different.  But how do you help someone see the quality that their life COULD bring them?  In the case of a stubborn person, do you hit them over the head with a marble rolling pin with hopes that they will see dawn… besides stars?  Do you point out the things the person does to not take care of themselves? Or do you attempt to introduce the person to new ideas for caring for themselves?  Here are some thoughts:


  1.  What qualities in life make us want to live to our full potential… stimulate our growth?
  2. Commit to a Healthy Lifestyle.  How do we hold our posture and our movement?  What puts a smile on our face?
  3. Think positive.  Be passionate about what you are doing?
  4. Visualize your transformation.  Every morning notice what you want to achieve… you can do it, if you put your mind to it.
  5. Confront and Remove obstacles in your life.  Decide what controlling factors will empower you to achieve the next level.
  6. Finally how do we talk to ourselves?  Are you kind to yourself or do you talk negatively to yourself?  Examine the friendship with yourself!


Obtaining quality of life through “CHANGE” is not easy, but necessary in improving your life and health.  Do the impossible!

    So much wisdom in this post. Especially since my kids go to nursery, I aim to focus on the quality of time we have together and not the quantity.

      Quality time with little ones is SO important! Children need that “heart connection,” as you well know. I’m so glad you focus on quality time with your munchkins… you will see the benefits over time. HUGS!!

    Once a dear person who I treasure wrote a comment back to me after I responded on her blog. She said, Patricia, be a gentle person to yourself. That hit me and from that day on I am a gentle, kind, friendly person to myself. If you are not gentle with yourself, you can’t be gentle and friendly with others.

    Love this post my dear.

      Your friend wrote wise words. You need to care for YOU as you would care for another person. It does not help if we beat ourselves up. Be a friend to YOU! Thanks for being a friend and stopping by!

    Pat is right, being kind to ourselves has to be part of the equation. If we aren’t kind to ourselves how can we be kind to others? It’s the golden rule…

  4. Excellent points, Gwynn. It starts by being nice to ourselves, eliminating negative thoughts. Not always easy, but good to keep in mind and self-monitor. It’s an exercise I try — replace negative thoughts with something positive — albeit not always to positive results. The mind has a mind of its own, but … we have some control.

    • Gwynn Rogers says:

      I keep hearing it is important to give US oxygen before we can help anyone else, so staying positive is critical. Like you my mind sometimes has its own state of mind… but I keep on working at it! Keep up the DYNAMITE work!!

    An inspiring and motivating post. Just what I needed 🙂 Thank you!

    • Gwynn Rogers says:

      Thank you Durba for your lovely comment. I am learning that in caregiving it is important to keep my mindset up so I can keep my husband’s mindset happy and inspired too. Enjoy your day!

  6. Good advice, Gwynn. One can always use the reminders.

    • Gwynn Rogers says:

      With my husband, he needs to get WHAPPED over the head to get this through his thick skull!! But little by little he is doing better and slowly changing some of his mindset…YEAAAAAA!!
