At The Bianchi Law Group, we feel that it is imperative to engage in a life “well-examined.” We have ourselves endured, (along with our clients), losses, suffering, and confusion as we journey through life. Being lawyers is wonderful as each day we have a chance to make a difference in the lives of our clients. While worthy, to us there is more to it all as it relates to our own role in our own life’s journey. So, when we left being prosecutors, we ensured that our law practice would not only serve the legal needs of our clients with excellence but that we would continue to do all of the great community outreach we did when we served as prosecutors. Our programs are a huge success. I especially enjoy giving my presentation on living a more joyful life and how to navigate the inevitable struggles and sufferings we all have. Check out the program details under our “outreach” tab and BLG programs and go to the Grateful Way Program.
The BLG Inspirational Blog is one more vehicle we use to communicate. Below is a poem that I feel is extremely true and useful. It is great advice.
Peace to you! Bob Bianchi
Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant; they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals;
and everywhere life is full of heroism.
Especially, do not feign affection.
Neither be critical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment, it is as perennial as the grass.
Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.
With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be careful. Strive to be happy.
