A new study by the University of Connecticut finds that practicing yoga may improve protein utilization among older women, and lead to the maintenance of muscle at a time in life when muscle loss is common. The … Read more
Fireworks, picnics and flags are images I typically associate with this holiday, but just celebrating as a matter of routine feels empty. So I really appreciate the author of this article for recounting the meaningful events that have occurred on July 4 over several generations.
Frankly, it was disheartening to notice that the first 6 pages on Google Search for “Independence Day” brought up the latest movie instead of historical references. As we stare down ISIS wanting to remove all our rights to exist as individuals, as women, and as a nation, let’s appreciate the work of our proud, brave military at the forefront of the battle to protect the American spirit of freedom.
Happy birthday, America! The Fourth of July means more than you may realize.
THREE…. TWO….. ONE: Happy New Year!!
Now it’s time to start up a 100 new countdown clocks. Whether it’s anticipating a happy event, or dreading a deadline, we can all be characterized by the quantity and quality of the virtual meters ticking away in our minds, driving our decisions and actions each day.
But a countdown implies an ending, and that Time is something you lose. As a hopeless optimist, I reject this concept by taking on a different perspective: starting at 1 and counting UP. Make each day a step towards a path with no visible end, where the milestones that sometimes overwhelm us are simply points along the way of a much greater journey.
I see Time as something you gain… in fact it can be captured and held within us through memories, through friendships. I also respect Time, knowing it isn’t guaranteed and that it can be downright cruel. But everything is relative, and all things look different from different perspectives. Whether we live 10 years or a 100 years, humans are so infinitesimally small on the cosmic scale, we hardly show up. On the other hand, a mayfly only lives for a day, so next to them we seem to last forever. Which brings me to this quote from my newest favorite movie:
“Some infinities are bigger than other infinities.”
― John Green,
Embrace each new day as a fresh start, and know that when you count up, the possibilities are limitless. Never assume you’re at the end of your road any more than you should assume you have an eternity to get there.
Ever imagine what it’s like to have ‘retired-people-problems’?
Do you feel like you’re dying slowly in a cubicle/ unfulfilling job?
Your dreams of retiring early with a substantial income from your own business can start turning into your reality NOW !!
We have to remember that life is whatever we make it. If there’s something about it that we don’t like, we have to create a different ending.
So, get up and be BOLD! get up and LOVE! get up and LIVE! get up and EXPRESS YOURSELF!
Because you are worthy and deserve the best life that you imagine! So, start TODAY and be GREAT!!!
Thanks for reading!
