Hello, All! So check this out! Every day the goal is to provide a pleasant and delightful experience to anyone that may cross your path. No matter who or what one may encounter the goal should be to be an encouragement. At least this is my personal goal.
That being said, do you ever find that to be difficult. I mean to focus daily on being that person who provides a positive experience for all who cross your path. Besides conquering one’s own challenges, the task can be disheartening when the benefactor does not seem to benefit.
I know we have all been there. Providing positive guidance every day to all including the individual that obviously needs special attention. I mean it is that individual who kinda rubs everyone the wrong way.
Every day is about them! Their whole thought process is focused on not togetherness but individualism. When you encounter them the conversation is always centered around not assuming responsibility for issues but blaming others. It can definitely be disheartening. Especially when all available help has been afforded to the person.
One of the most gratifying things in life is to be in a position to help others and see that help benefit someone. That help can be a word of enlightenment, assisting in a move from one location to another, encouragement in reaching a goal or getting through a test, a warning to a particular bad behavior exhibited that could lead down a bad path, or simply motivating someone to have a good morning. The benefits afterward can be quite rewarding!
At the end of the day, I guess it can be said that staying true to yourself is what matters. If you know you have done all to provide a thoughtful positive experience to whomever, you can be at peace.
Welcome back! So, I had some trouble with my phone and after asking a few questions during my investigation it led me to guess what? A reset!! Who would’ve thought just a simple reset of the phone would help clear the issue. Well, I did not but I understand the concept. For those who may not follow I’m referring to the action of just powering down and powering back up of any device. In this case my phone.
What I am referring to is that through this life there will be times we just need a reset. Life for some can bring a variety of challenges ranging from managing food, navigating family concerns, dealing with medical circumstances, and overcoming substance abuse. Whatever the challenge one must find a way to reset.
The need to reset kinda goes like this. When my phone acted up I could not get the touch sensor to respond. It sorta froze up to where it would not respond. No matter the length of time I gave it to recover there was no response. This is sort of the same thing that happens to a computer when it does not respond after may be opening too many applications and performing too many operations too quickly.
Well, if this happens the solution many times is to give it a hard reset meaning the device has to be turned off and then back on. When this happens, the internal device operating programs are given a chance to realign themselves. This, in turn, causes most of the time the remaining sub programs to follow suit. Kinda like puzzle pieces that fit together properly.
Knowing this, the mind can be introduced to lots of information. Productive and encouraging things as well as non-productive and negative things. The challenge is to remain focused and on point to that positive goal which has been set. Over time there is a chance one can get over whelmed by what is seen as opposed to what is believed and ultimately lose sight of the original goal.
A reset can be a mechanism that helps one to refocus on the goal and place all in the right perspective. Maybe it is a time you spend reading your favorite motivational author alone, maybe it is going on a special retreat alone, maybe it is embarking on that physically demanding trip or contest alone, or simply spending time away alone where one can reconnect with his God.
In all, the intended result is to come out a better being with a renewed focus, an enlightened heart, a rejuvenated mind, and a refreshed spirit.
Once a year, I embark on a reset. I encourage my mind and body by spending time reading positive spiritual material and I also reset the physical body by fasting. Both do wonders for the mind and body. The reading reminds me of whats important in this life while the fasting helps to reset and rejuvenate the internal workings of the organs and systems.
So, if you encounter life’s challenges and sometimes need to refocus on your goals a reset is maybe what you need.
With todays ever changing food landscape it is important to be flexible when it comes to investing in ones health.
Hi, everyone! Hope you had a good week! I did! Busy, but went well. So why is it that I promote healthy eating you ask? So why the change? Well, let me share a story.
Some years back I adopted a particular lifestyle routine. It was busy meaning I had a regular job, very little sleep, some exercise and a diet that included eating fatty foods; pizzas, burgers, and plenty of processed foods. My energy level was quite low which resulted in me wanting to sleep all the time. Although I rested for a good seven to eight hours, I still felt a bit fatigued. Shortly after I started a day and had a cup of coffee I noticed drowsiness setting in. In addition, I noticed my clothes fitting a bit tighter every where. This situation did not make me feel good about myself at all.
So after feeling like this and realizing this was not a healthy condition I decided to make a positive change with regards to my health. I concluded I did not want to feel sluggish anymore and wanted to lose the weight. This led me to seek expert/professional help, change what type of foods I was consuming, include supplements, and develop a physical fitness regimen.
The change resulted in a complete body change from the inside out. The guidance helped me to get educated on the internal workings of how our body works with regards to it digesting foods and the intended purpose. That information led me to replace and include certain foods in my eating regimen. This allowed for my internal digestive mechanisms to metabolize food more efficiently in order to get that maximum nutrition. I developed a physical fitness regimen which helped me to increase my metabolism to burn off excess calories. Lastly, supplements were included to help offset the loss of nutrition in foods today along with the increased loss of fluids during extreme physical fitness. So that’s why I changed.
If your story is like mine that is good to know. This means we both understand the dilemma and that we are not alone as we might have thought. Set a goal and understand there is a way to enjoy life to the fullest. It is waiting for you to make that decision. Remember to never be complacent but always be willing to change. See you next post.
Is it really about what you eat?? My hunch is that it is. If you care about your health and wellbeing eating the right thing is a must!
Hello there! Welcome back! As promised I want to share a bit about what my lifestyle entails. One of the things I have learned to accept with a positive outlook on life is the fact that we are what we eat. Before I go deep into this let us just look at what should be obvious to us today. Foods today are not what they were say in the early 1900’s. Our culture was one that lived on farms and grew most foods. Whether it was cattle, grain, or vegetable society mainly ate from the fruit of the land with very little manufactured processing. Consequently, most foods kept a majority of their nutritional value. This, in turn, helped mankind to consume a high concentration of foods with plenty of vitamins and minerals.
Fast forward to today, there are far fewer family-owned farms and most foods are processed. Advanced processes in agricultural technology have been the main cause; allowing for greater and quicker yields that are insect and disease resistant. As a result, food today appears to have lost a bit of the full nutritional value to be offered and replaced with fillers.
So with this, one has to eat smarter meaning they must educate themselves about what is consumed. Taking the time to do this will not only reward one with the self-satisfaction of doing well but also reaping the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. Eat smarter and live well I say!
Personally, I’ve benefited from eating healthier!From feeling sluggish all the time with no energy to being alert and vibrant I attribute most of the change to eating healthier. This means eating less processed foods to consuming more organic-prepped based foods.
A quick way to gage this is just to look at the label. Are there ingredients on there you cannot pronounce? Hmmm? Far cry from just your plain descriptions.
Let me remind you though, that it has been a journey not always covered with rose petals. I have had to learn over time what promotes a healthy lifestyle and what works against it.This is what I stress. Do what fits you and promotes a healthy lifestyle so that you:
Can enjoy your family
Family can enjoy you
Share your ideas
Enjoy travel, reading, sports, bike rides, plays, walks in the park!
