In the course of one day, we have an overwhelming list of responsibilities and obligations that we have taken upon our shoulders.
Our lives are moving at such high rates of speed we’re often plagued with obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and the like.
The truth is, without you your day stops in its tracks.
If you don’t take care of yourself all your plans and promises will be for naught.
Here’s 3 basic things we can do to nurture good health:
1.Feed your mind the right stuff: Read something positive each night before bed and each morning before you begin your day.
2.Feed your body the right stuff: You know what to do. Keep the junk to a minimum.
3.Move with purpose: Make everywhere you go a deliberate action. It will increase the calories burned, strengthen core muscles, and cause people to see you as a person who knows what they want and where they are going.
I have 3 friends battling cancer right now.
Every healthy day is priceless. Let’s don’t waste it.
Every successful journey that arrives at its proper destination at the appointed time starts with a plan.
Life is our ultimate journey. What’s the plan?
Take out a piece of paper, decide what you want out of your experience of life, and write it down.
A life plan isn’t a static plan. It can and should shift and move as you go along.
You might find this exercise exciting and fun. I know I always do.
I’m modifying and rewriting mine right now.
I know what you’re thinking: “Terri, what’s with all this plan, plan, plan, you’re always talking up?”
It’s one thing I do that helps me keep my emotions on an even keel especially when times are rough.
And most of all, it puts you in the driver seat of life and builds self-confidence.
You know, confidence is…… sexy!!
You’re all beautiful people.
I know we all have so much going on in our personal lives, but this is worth taking time to consider.
Maybe you heard, one June 2, 2008 Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, while making a speech said this about YOUR country:
“ Today, the time for the fall of the satanic power of the United States has come and the countdown to the annihilation of the emperor of power and wealth has started.”
What countdown? What annihilation?
Whether you are Democrat or Republican and regardless of your religious beliefs, we are all Americans and I’m sure we would all prefer to continue to enjoy our free lives as we know them.
This is one world and we are in it.
Please be vigilant.
You can make a difference.
Sometimes I get bogged down with the same ole grind. I get into a rut and can’t get out.
I feel like screaming, “Man, this is crazy. Get me outta here!”
Ever feel that way?
Yea and we should. After all, life is a short trip, why do we waste a moment of it in monotony?
But, I guess there are some portions of the experience of life that just are what they are at times.
That’s no reason to wallow in unnecessary monotony, is it?
No indeed, we will never get today back so let’s break what we can of dull routines.
Little changes can shake things up just enough to bring some spice back to life.
I think I will invite my family to leave the dining table behind today and join me for supper on the porch.
Life is your experience. Let’s keep it interesting.
