A leader is someone who defines their own reality by defining their own associations. How you feel, how you think, how you act is built on your associations. Believe in them. They define you and strengthen your unique being. A true leader has the courage to lead by their associations and the courage to define their own reality. The essence of living inspires the essence of living. Cause and effect then becomes a beautiful reality. Build your associations, believe in how you are defined, and lead by example. #SeriousSaturday
"Mother Nature has given you permission to be beautiful. A tree or deer never feels guilty about being beautiful. Beauty and grace is our natural state." -David Wolfe
Beauty of the mind, body, and spirit are one. It is connected. Disharmony in any of your realms will impede your true self to manifest. Focus on positivity and balance. Be aware of your state of beauty. You are meant to be beautiful! Choices Exist: Empowered and Educated! To YOUR Health :)
As I listen to this song by The Fray, I'm reminded that we all this ability. Whether its a simple smile, a dollar, or just the act of listening; be THERE, be PRESENT! Everything takes a moment. Everything is a choice. Be a moment for someone.
A patient at work told me today, as I passed her leaving work, "Thank you for just showing you care, it really meant a lot". I had to think about what I did, but I do believe it came down to just being PRESENT at the moment she was describing. Simple acts...the best PRESENT one can give. We are all powerful beyond belief!
You might just save a life....Blessings for a beautiful evening, all of you!
"While lifestyle changes can really help bring your cholesterol down, Wong says that not enough people give them a real chance." (Nathan D. Wong, PhD, director of the heart disease prevention program at the University of California, Irving)
"The problem is that both patients and their doctors like immediate results," he tells WebMD. "Lowering your cholesterol with exercise and diet is just not like that."----'High Cholesterol Treatment -- What Works? Safe, effective treatment for high cholesterol isn't hard -- but it can be confusing. Get the facts.' WebMD Feature
Do you ask your doctor about diet and lifestyle changes when a medication is prescribed for you? There are options. Your doctor will discuss the risks and benefits with you. Just ask.
Many need "a pill" and many don't. Look at the big picture, be patient, and see beyond the quick fix. Most indications include diet and lifestyle as treatment options before medication or in conjunction. Cholesterol is just one example.
Do you feel better once you talk it out? Is the body free when the mind is at peace?
I saw a friend today who has been experiencing excruciating back pain lately. Today he looked, sounded, and felt 100% better. I asked what happened? He said he doesn't know but since the day we talked he hasn't needed pain medications and he doesn't know why (as he smiled!). That day we spoke I just listened while he described his intense frustrations and how he saw this pain negatively affecting his life. I offered optimistic feedback and encouragement but basically allowed him to express himself. Do you think purging negative feelings, expressing himself, and ultimately listening to his own words, healed his mind and body? I think it helped. Listening and communicating is one of the most vital human arts.
Express yourself and most importantly be there to listen. You may just change a life. We all have the potential to heal and what a world it would be if we offered our hearts as well as our minds...And sometimes that simply involves listening. Don't you JUST want someone to listen sometimes? This is the body talking to the mind. Your body knows what it needs. Our gifts are all right here.
Much love and listening!
