Turning 30 and turning my life arond

I am soon to turn 30 and at one stage I honestly didn't think I would make it so I have decided that I am going to live my life to the fullest, being the BEST ME I can which means I am having to make A LOT of MAJOR changes.

As I move along my journey I am faced with all sorts of hurdles, some placed there by myself, others and my health but I am determined to conquer them all. I might not be able to jump them but I will be getting there one leg at a time.

I wanted to put up here my one "major" goal I have set for myself which is to walk from one end of the SOUTHERN EXPRESSWAY to the other which is approximately 25km's.

Are you still here? It's been a while since you've updated your status or since I've seen you around... Hopefully you're just lurking and quietly still chasing your own goals but in case you're not, please remember:

People disappear for all sorts of reasons. Life gets in the way, we forget or change our views on what we deem is important, we get buried under stress, frustration, illness. We sometimes give up, throw in the towel, or just promise ourselves that once things get better/easier/calmer, we will hitch up our socks and come back fresh. We've all done it. We've all been there. And if perhaps, you just need a supportive hug, or a helping hand or a word of inspiration, please know that I am offering it to you with no judgment, no guilt. It seems like it's been a while since you've been here and I just wanted to let you know that you are missed.

“You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.” –A.A. Milne

“Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says I’ll try again tomorrow.” -Mary Anne Radmacher

“All our dreams can come true – if we have the courage to pursue them.” –Walt Disney

If you are in need of a little realistic motivation, please, please read my blog post "Letting Go of Expectations". It helped me tremendously just writing it and hopefully it will pass on some inspiration to you as well. :)

The History of May Day: 

"Etymologically, [May Day] is a homophone (same sounding word) for the international call for help. It is a corruption of the French imperative “M’aidez” meaning “Help me!” As a holiday it is claimed by many. It is known in the pagan world as Beltane, a fertility celebration... Beltane is the day of fire commemorating Bel or Belenos, the Celtic sun god. Indeed, in the modern Irish language, Bealtaine is the name for the month of May. The early Anglo-Saxons began their celebration on the eve before, feasting the end of winter and the first planting. It was a time of revelry and abandon... But this day’s celebration of the revival of vegetation goes back to the Roman practice of visiting the grotto of Egena. The people of ancient Rome honored Flora, the goddess of flowers and springtime.

"...In America: The Puritans frowned on May Day, so the day has never been celebrated with as much enthusiasm in the United States... But the tradition of celebrating May Day by dancing and singing around a maypole, tied with colorful streamers or ribbons, survived as a part of the English tradition. The kids celebrating the day by moving back and forth around the pole with the the streamers, choosing of May queen, and hanging of May baskets on the doorknobs of folks -- are all the leftovers of the old European traditions."

"In 1886 it was co-opted as an international workers day to celebrate the 8-hour workday movement, following national strikes in the US and Canada. Later, the French declared May 1 the International Working Men’s Association holiday in 1889."

This coming Saturday, April 14, 2012 is International Moment of Laughter Day.

Seriously. You can't make up this stuff.

"International Moment of Laughter Day is certainly a day to put a smile on your face! ... Laugh loudly and laugh often. Watch a funny movie, read an amusing book, or just be silly with your friends. It is not the cause of the laughter that matters… but the effect.
Researchers have begun to examine positive emotions and their impact on a person's health and aging process. Based on the results from a scientific study at the University of Maryland Medical Center, laughter may give a jolt to circulation and have positive effects on the heart. In addition, laughter may increase the body's production of nitric oxide (a chemical that helps dilate blood vessels).
All of these positive impacts on your health are reason enough to laugh not just today, but every day! So go ahead and be silly and laugh at your own jokes. And don't forget that laughter is contagious!" (http://www.punchbowl.com/holidays/interna
tional-moment-of-laughter-day)

"A day without laughter is a day wasted." ~ Charlie Chaplin

Happy Almost Easter!

Ever wonder where the easter bunny and easter eggs came from?

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

"The name “Easter” was likely derived from Eostre, the name of the Anglo-Saxon lunar goddess, as was as the name for the female hormone estrogen. Eostre’s feast day was held on the first full moon following the vernal equinox — a similar calculation as is used for Easter among Western Christians...Two of Eostre’s most important symbols were the hare (both because of its fertility and because ancient people saw a hare in the full moon) and the egg, which symbolized the growing possibility of new life. Each of these symbols continues to play an important role in modern celebrations of Easter."

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

And by the way, before diving into your easter basket this year you might want to take note of the following:
One Cadbury Easter Creme Egg (*yum*) is 150 calories, contains 6 grams of fat, 21g of sugar and only 1 gram of protein. Not so bad, right?
However, One Hard Boiled Egg (painted or unpainted) is approximately 70 calories (depending on the size), has 5 grams of fat, 1g of sugar, and 6 whopping grams of protein. Not only that, but did you know that eggs help boost brain health, reduces inflammation, provides our body with much needed Choline, promotes weight loss, helps with heart health, improves your cholesterol profile, prevents blood clots, and protects eyesight? Whew! Lets see our little chocolate cream egg do all that! So what are you waiting for? Release your skinny, creative artist and get colouring those easter eggs!
