The Classic Pamela Positive: “Be Clear About What Is Truly Essential”


Marine corps officer Robert J. Wicks shares with us some important lessons on life and nature.

Rather than read, he encourages us to reflect.  If we face a challenge, we can act not from anger but from joy and grounded peace.

From his book, Streams of Contentment, here are three tips on living a natural, and successful life.

* Be clear about what is truly essential.

* Appreciate everything and everyone in your life right now.

* Recognize that a little silence and solitude is no small thing.

– Robert J. Wicks

When we appreciate what is important, right now, we honor life and everyone around us.


Robert J. Wicks was a Marine corps officer in Vietnam. He is the author of more than 40 books, urging an appreciation of nature, inspired by his family’s 78 acres of forests and open fields.
