Time for

I have fallen off the wagon.   I have not been walking in over a month.  I will not get into the who and why, but I intend to straighten this mess out.  I call it a mess, because I was on a roll and I let other things and people get in my way, and fill my head with nonsense.  It is hard doing something without support.  I always thought I was the type of person who really didn’t need another person’s support of whatever I was trying to accomplish.  That is a very lonely place to be.    But If I am going to get a healthy lifestyle, I need more from the people around and much more from myself.    Plus I have some health issues I need to take care.   They also have slowed me down.  I will be back on the road again after this week.  Up, up and away.

Been Away for a While

I have been away for a while.   This past Thanksgiving, I had a family emergency.   It took to New Orleans and back.   I have been checking my email and getting back into the swing of things, but blogging and getting back into my business, well it has taken a while.    I am not one to discuss personal deep problems, thoughts on the my blog, Facebook and twitter.   Some things are private. I don’t like to many people knowing my business.  

So here I am back in the swing.   The New year is around the corner and I am starting to feel like my old self again.   Really to share my thoughts, ideas with whomever will read my post.  In a way I am just picking up where I left off.  So here we go.  New Year, New me, New life and I hope and pray God stays by my side.

Great Recipe

A friend of mine, who keeps sending notes about how to improve the quality of my life andmaintain the loving relationship that I have.  I am a friend of hers, though I do not send out as many emails as I use to( she forgives me).    Here is one she sent me.   Right now it sums up what 2012 is shaping up to be or the promise of the year.

Great Recipe (one of the best that you will ever read)
1. Take a 10-30 minute walk every day. And while you walk, smile. It is the ultimate antidepressant.
2. Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day.  Talk to God about what is going on in your life.
3. When you wake up in the morning complete the following
statement, ‘My purpose is to__________ today. I am thankful for______________’
4. Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food that is manufactured in plants.
5. Drink green tea and plenty of water. Eat blueberries, broccoli, almonds & walnuts.
6. Try to make at least three people smile each day.
7. Don’t waste your precious energy on gossip, issues of the past, negative thoughts or things you cannot control. Instead
invest your energy in the positive present moment.
8. Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a college kid with a maxed out charge card.
9. Life isn’t fair, but it’s still good.
10. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.
11. Don’t take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
12. You are not so important that you have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.
13. Make peace with your past so it won’t spoil the present.
14. Don’t compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about .
15. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.
16. Frame every snowballed disaster with these words: ‘In five years, will this matter?’
17. Forgive everyone for everything.
18. What other people think of you is none of your business.
19. GOD heals everything – but you have to ask Him.
20. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
21. Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick. Your friends will. Stay in touch!!!
22. Envy is a waste of time. You have everything you need.
23. Each night before you go to bed, complete the following statements: I am thankful for__________.
Today I accomplished_________.
24. Remember that you are too blessed to be stressed.
25. When you are feeling down, start listing your many blessings. You’ll be smiling before you know it.
