The world needs more of THIS. Stand up guy, stand up speech! Just awesome.
Today is the three year anniversary of my uncles sudden death and also the reminder that my father would die suddenly very much the same way nine months later. Today gives anxiety for numerous reasons but most of all knowing now that I would have limited time left with my own father. What would I have done? What would I have said? We live our lives thinking we always have time, unlimited time. You certainly do not. Those words left unsaid or those visit you don’t take may never happen. Life isn’t about learning to control but about learning to listen to act on your choice.
Your choices are your own. Choose to make every day better than the last. Choose to pick up the phone and ask you Dad how he is. Choose to know and love your parents NOW. Don’t wait. Waiting is for the overconfident. If I knew from this day, I had just a few months with my father I would live as if I was dying. We all should, everyday, because we all are.
I have no regrets. I cherished my father and soaked up every moment with him. To know or not to know that is the question but if you live your life fully every day, acting on your choice, you will never have to ask. Love your parents. Live for each other NOW. Time is never guaranteed.
Your choice. Your life. God Bless. To your health...
The best thing you can do for your body, your metabolism, your organs, your mind; is to drink water. And drink water when you first wake in the morning. Like gas to a car, water is fuel for your body. Its the simple things that make the biggest difference. Try it today!!
Entry into your personal space; your body, your mind, your spirit, your soul must be earned. Do not give it away in good faith. Do not open the door when your intuition says wait. Do not allow your mind to rationalize what your gut is already telling you. Words are cheap. Be mindful. Your peace is too precious. Don’t take on everyone’s drama and baggage. If they don’t know how to carry their own, don’t let them carry yours. It takes unnecessary energy to clean a clean house. Don’t be too nice. You are worth it. To your health...
Hold your feminine power. Know your beauty. Trust your passion. And most of all believe in the intention of your spirit. Not everyone will understand. Not everyone will want to. That isn’t the purpose. The purpose is to be unapologetically you. As women, to remember this and to not be defined by stereotypes or judgments is vital to change. Women are women for a reason. You know who you are. Embrace this beautiful gift. Shine in the dark where light is needed. To your health....
I do believe that nothing is a road block but merely a detour. Be flexible, remain optimistic, and let go of expectation. It's what you believe and how you respond that creates your destiny. We are more powerful than we al know. Happy Saturday. Keep looking ahead and take the small steps. To your health....
