Let’s just say I’m not a fan of New Years resolutions, or setting goals etc for the new year. You never know what the year will bring, and cannot control life. I do believe in constantly setting goals from … Continue reading
Don’t give up,
Get back up, and brush off the baggage that you have been piling up.
Every moment in a day, a week, a month, an hour is a time to begin
It’s not about starting over its about moving forward
To dwell on things of the past, things completed and things that are not in your control…
well quite frankly aren’t worth any time in your little minds
To fret, to stress, to worry that you’ve either made the biggest mistake of your life, or even think how you could’ve done better….
Only gets you more down, and it’s like crawling on the ground counting the grains of sand that have no purpose for you.
Is it good to reflect? To move to somewhere healthy or positive?
At first if you need to jump, jump into arms of someone you can trust
If there’s no light near, use caution, jumping might mean setting yourself up for failure again
A fall could make or break you.
It’s not a break if you get back up
Each time you choose to do what you know is good, or keep on getting back up …. The STRONGER SMARTER and better person you will become
To know the good days, you also must know that bad.
Or else… what makes a good day good?
Take a breath, a look around and seek out light, comfort and truth
I don’t know if it’s about the race, or the journey or just the lessons we learn and what we choose to do with them.
I can’t help but think of it like training, you must have
endurance: to make it to the end
speed: to run past your struggles and negative in this world
power: overcome your deamons
strength: when the time comes to hold yourself up and someone else….
And not every time will you make it… but keep training
And catch your breath when you’re tired… because there’s someone there to help you on the way
Selfish Intentions… Probably one of the most toxic things to our health… and well-being. I’d be lying if I said I don’t struggle, or have been and done very self-centered things. Some harmless, and unfortunately some harmful to myself and … Continue reading
Resolution: 1. a firm decision to do or not to do something. “she kept her resolution not to see Anne any more” a formal expression of opinion or intention agreed on by a legislative body, committee, or other formal meeting, … Continue reading
I had a huge pile of awesome land on my lap.
Although I wasn’t outright upset or angry, it was hard knowing that I had
no.1: No Job… or prospects for anything turning up.
no.2: No one available to help my with setting up counselor or headaches, or health in general ( A WHOLE other topic)
Without any force, or huge extension of major effort or struggle it was as if a gift given came to me.
Started Friday, and interview and a simple clothing store that offered me a part-time position with minimum wages, but as a safe, simple job. YAY!
Then Friday afternoon, had a specialist phone about setting up a counselor, and talked with me for over an HOUR, about life, advice, and consolation that things will get better.
Never had I ever had such a great talk with a professional, of any sorts, that genuinely wanted to help. Felt so relieved and enjoyed the entire experience.
Ahhhhh felt hope.
Then, the biggest surprise of them all!
I was approached by the owner of the gym I regularly attend, and he asked little bit about why I come to the gym.
Of course I blabbed about how much it changed my life and how it’s great thing everyone should do… etc etc etc.
Anyone with Passion about wellness would understand.
He smiled and said, “I thought so..”
He then asked me what I’ve been up to, and if I had a job.
I told him about my current situation, how I came back to my hometown…
He said, “Would you ever consider training?”
A huge grin crossed my face and he knew my answer.
He then said, ” Well, what would you think about coming in this week and I’ll show you around, I have papers you can fill out and we can start as soon as you want. You can take this as far as you want, and the staff here will certify you and help you build a clientele, all the while you can help out and get paid to run the gym.”
Mouth dropped to my feet, smile in my eyes and instant thought, “Impossible, impossible… so great.”
That was my no.3
My No.4 was the selling of my old winter tires to get money to buy groceries and have gas money to do errands in town and for Christmas.
Sometimes, it’s almost as if you need an attitude adjustment, before you can move on to better things so that you appreciate them more, and will have way more jeart into them.
Not for selfish desires but a knowing that it was a gift you will not forget.
I do feel I am finally seeing some light again.
Until this point it was just a knowing that there would be light, and I couldn’t lay down in darkness waiting for it to come to me, I had to keep pushing and not give up.
THE BEST PART!!!
This is the beginning,
i am just seeing a glimpse of this,
and it’s been a short time already
that doing the right thing is not always the easy thing
waiting for results, is TIME… Doesn’t happen over night
a hug is to pain, and a band-aid is to a cut
good intentions mean that another person failed to understand or see the reason behind your actions
that it’s not a matter of IF but WHEN you hurt someone you love
to know great pain, is to know great love
to never presume the good OR bad
true friends want the best for you, not for themselves
there’s a fine line between being generous and being taken advantage of
It’s not about winning, it’s about saying you tried
letting go is not as bad as holding onto something that shouldn’t be
when you think you are in control of life… is when life’s in control of you
moderation, is one of the most important, single word to live by
that happiness is not based on any part of a materialistic world
a genuine smile is the best thing you can wear
that the admittance of struggles is a sign of strength
the more I learn, the less intelligent I feel
– To Be Continued…
Two days ago, a long journey after ‘having it all’… stable… or so I thought… and being what some people might consider successful… With decisions I had to make to better myself, health and well-being costs of money, time, emotions … Continue reading
This is my recipe to maintain a sound body, and sound mind
Most of the time… 🙂
It is a lot of things, and sometimes I don’t need to do it all,
but if I want to keep my mind and body in the right place, well I thought I would share this.
First of all, everything in somewhat moderation, but that is different for everyone I suppose.
I am avoid junk/processed food say..85% of the time
The other 15% is called PMS fools. Deal with it
Eat what I would say a balanced diet, avoiding gluten, sugars, simple sugars and having plently of EGGS and veggies
Limit coffee to a cup a day, and try only 5 days a week
Lots, but the main ones are OMEGA 3, FULL spectrum amino acids, Vitamin D, MCT Oil, and digestive enzyme.
No big deal
I get my 7-10 hours of sleep.
Take Melatonin to ensure I sleep like a boss
I inject B12 in my leg for stress, and increase in energy once a week
( I do not advise this unless you’ve seeked a medical professional)
EXCERSIZE! Change it up, absolutely once a week no questions asked, BUT
usually 4-5 times a week workout
Music, yes! music, lots of it
And I like the stuff no one else listens to…. so not the radio is what I’m saying, BUT sometimes I like some mainstream tunes too.
this gets me in the ZONE!
Photography is that hobby that gets me out of the house and brings out my creative side.
Well this is the bulk of it. There are many little things I do, but I must say one thing, it’s not that I”m crazy, it’s just a lifestyle I do to live a full and enjoyable life
YES YES, I eat chocolate, and laze around and watch tv sometimes,but that is not my lifestyle
What would happen if we all just saw the negative in the world?
What if the down right dirty, and wrong things that happen were all we could think of?
What if all we could see is the good?
Then we would forget the lessons we learnt in the bad.
I think it’s time to embrace both, and that’s what is called life.
The good, the bad, the ugly… and heck the frickin’ awesome!
Taking a photo can be a reminder of those things.
It could be a sunset, a flawless face, or even the grungy alley of a city.
And to take something unpleasant, and make it appealing to the eye, is also a great thing.
If the world were a perfect place, photography wouldn’t be as moving as it is, because there would be nothing to compare it to.
