Invest wisely

Invest your time and energy in people you can count on and in whom you can bring out the best. Leave those who don’t care to grow. Preserve your loyalty for those who value you and your time.

Invest your time and energy in colleagues and employers you can count on to bring out the best in you. Leave those not committed to your growth. Preserve your loyalty for those who value you and your time.

Invest your time and energy personally and professionally in relationships where you grow and others grow, too. Lip service is costly. Don’t fool yourself, or another.

Invest your life in pursuits that will help you grow personally and professionally materially and intangibly with wealth that cannot be quantified and wealth that can.

So that later in life when you take stock and hold yourself to account for what then is and what was, you’ll know that you gave your best in all that you did, you didn’t let anyone hold you back, not friend, not foe, not lover, not family, not colleague, not employer, not fear, and not you

The Roman amphitheater of Plovdiv, Bulgaria

The Roman amphitheater of Plovdiv, Bulgaria’s second largest city. The amphitheater was constructed in the 1st century A.D. In subsequent centuries, it was damaged by Huns, partially destroyed by natural events and like much of the ancient world, it literally disappeared into history, buried under sediments.

The ruins and the theatre were rediscovered about 50 years ago when a landslide exposed the ruins. Bulgarian archaeologists excavated and restored the well-preserved structure. Today, the amphitheater plays host to opera, theater and music concerts.
