A-Musings

Sunday, June 10, 2012

If you're having a bad day, look at yourself in the mirror and smile. You have accomplished so much.

Here's something to help make you smile -

What do you get if you cross an ostrich with a snake?

A feather boa.

Think about the places or environments that bring out the best in you.

Now figure out a way to visit them more often.

The beach is my fave get-away place.
I don't know if it is the fresh salt air,
the cool breezes, the soothing sound
of the surf or just being away from it all.
That is the one place I can ALWAYS unwind.
emoticon

Unfortunately, I havent been able to afford going
in several years. However, I downloaded
from YouTube a soothing mp3 of the ocean.
I like to lay (or is it lie?) in bed and pretend
(visualize) that I am at the beach.
emoticon
It works ! It's always calming

So try taking mental vacations

BLESSINGS !

Some beach balls are so talented, they’re even able to balance on a seal’s nose.

Happiness suggestions—from 200 years ago

Thursday, June 07, 2012

In 1820, English writer Sydney Smith wrote a letter to an unhappy friend, Lady Morpeth, in which he offered 20 tips for how to be happy. Many of them hold up today. Here are the first 8:

“1st. Live as well as you dare.

2nd. Go into the shower-bath with a small quantity of water at a temperature low enough to give you a slight sensation of cold, 75 or 80 degrees.

3rd. Amusing books.

4th. Short views of human life—not further than dinner or tea.

5th. Be as busy as you can.

6th. See as much as you can of those friends who respect and like you.

7th. And of those acquaintances who amuse you.

8th. Make no secret of low spirits to your friends, but talk of them freely—they are always worse for dignified concealment.”

In the spirit of #8, I must admit that I have been struggling with the same couple of pounds for the last month or so. Up - down - up - down - up - down. I have been dealing with some personal issues also which I know has a lot to do with my weight issues, too. I try to keep an upbeat attitude at all times and encourage others, hoping it will help to encourage me, too. It doesn't always work, though. Right now, I am just so down & depressed.

  I totally understand! I have been looking for a job for 2 months and have had several job offers but the $ is sooooo low like $20k less than my previous job. I'm also trying to keep busy by taking the time to work on self & career development but sad thoughts can still continue. I try to walk every day usually before dinner to clear my head and keep affirmations nearby to remind myself that good things will come. Try taking Vitamin D3 in divided doses (helps with depression) and remember "this is temporary & u can do anything temporarily". Wish u much luck!

Trimming your portions rather than totally eliminating certain foods is the simplest way to shrink your waistline. As Americans, we've grown too accustomed to supersize everything-cars, homes, entrees. But retraining your brain to view the right-size portions as normal will help you eat just what your body needs instead of huge helpings.
