Light or dark

Monday, June 01, 2009

Let your light shine. Shine within you so that it can shine on someone else. Let your light shine.

-Oprah Winfrey

The easiest thing a person can do is point out what is wrong. To be critical, judgmental, negative, etc does not take an extraordinary talent. Life has many obstacles, issues, discomforts and people have many short falls. Focusing on them is to focus on what is obvious.

Yet, the majority of people like to discuss what is wrong either with the world at large or with a specific place or person. Not only does this take no effort, insight or creative effort, it is really not even very interesting. I think it stems from us not wanting to either put in effort to improve what is going on, or fear of our inadequacies that we hide behind what we can see negative in others. All we are doing is dimming the lights.

We're not inspiring others or ourselves with our complaints and criticisms. What we are doing as we bath in our negativity is spreading darkness. We see the world as darker and we make it darker for others. As the world gets darker we stop seeing the beauty that is all around us and the magic of life. We do not see what a person can do, but only see their short comings. Acting as such will neither help yourself or others.

"The hero is the one who kindles a great light in the world, who sets up blazing torches in the dark streets of life for men to see by. The saint is the man who walks through the dark paths of the world, himself a light."

-Felix Adler

Being a hero is a simple as turning the light switch on and spreading light. Step out of the darkness of the plain and simple and find solutions, possibilities and beauty. There is no need to be ordinary and boring. Be amazing which is so simple, all you have to do is spread light. Like turning on a flashlight shine the ways for others by showing what a person can do. Spread more light by finding what is working. If it not working then help find what can work by spreading light.

"In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary."

-Aaron Rose

Light or dark it is up to us.

  What an amazing blog. These are the thoughts I'm struggling with right now. I'm trying extra hard to think positively and concentrate on shining my light onto situations and people. Honestly, I'm having a hard time. Natural right?

Choices and Consequences

Monday, June 01, 2009

The great American poet Robert Frost wrote these
immortal lines 90 years ago:

"Two roads diverged in a wood
And I took the one less traveled by
And that has made all the difference"

Even if you're not much into poetry you can easily
recognize the life lesson there.

Today, almost everyone is facing a fork in the road.
On one hand, you can go down the road of blaming the
current economy for the lack of wealth and falling profits.

This road of doom and gloom is the one "most traveled".

But we're different, right?

We know that's not the only path.

The other trail is blazed by bold achievers who are
committed to working smarter, not harder, and using
tested and proven manifestation strategies to build an
abundant life - no matter what the news says about the
economy.

So you're standing at the crossroads: Which road will you take?

Are you a trail blazer or a follower down the road most traveled?
Me I have my machet and I'm headed into the jungle!

  


AND MORE IT WILL BE

Sunday, May 31, 2009

I certainly had a successful day! I put in alot of cardio and strength exercises outside! I turned the earth over in my entire garden; spade amd muscle power, mowed the entire yard, put up a railing a long the entire length of my main flower bed; hammer and nailed it! Then still went for an hours walk after dinner! My expecattions for the day carried through the entire day! Talk about being motivated for more!
AND MORE IT WILL BE! More gardening and then some land scaping Putting in a pond and water feature in the front yard. The mice will play while the cats away! emoticon Walter is doing a plumbing job later today and will be away for several hours! hehehee

    Good for you and all of that activity ! I love being out in the yard. It sounds like you do too. My hubby does air conditioning work and works primarily outside, so I can't even get him to sit outside in the evening. I would love to have a water feature in my front yard but we live in a restricted community and they are not allowed, because of all of the small children,and animals. I think it's a pretty dumb rule.

You and I have the same plans for today. I am going to plant my veggies in the garden that I made for them. I have lettuce, squash, green beans, carrots, cukes, radishes, cantelope, tomatoes, bell peppers, broccoli, and spinach. I can't wait till they start producing and i can make a big old salad, or a veggie soup. I also have an herb garden with everything you can imagine in it.

You have a wonderful, productive day. Talk to you soon.---Sherry

Being In Sinc!

Saturday, May 30, 2009

Ever notice that a good number of people lack motivation to get themselves into shape... Some are extremely motivated and work their butts off, while others just want a "quick fix" and whine and complain about working hard. Well here's the thing Not I don't or won't work with whiners and complainers.But, if after a time I see that they are chronic whiners and complainers and won't make the effort to change then I'm sorry but I don't need that negativity in my life.

I recently heard a quote from Will Smith, an actor who I admire greatly for his hard work ethic, both in the gym and in his career. It went something like this: "I will NOT be outworked. Period... You might have more talent than me, you might be smarter than me, you might be sexier than me, you might be all of those things. You got it on me in nine categories. But if we get on the treadmill together, there's two things: Either you're getting off first, or I'm gonna die. It's really that simple." -Will Smith, on his work ethic Yes!
Now THAT'S the way to get motivated! You gotta love it. He was obviously talking about much more than just working hard during exercise... this was about life... but if you think of that quote before you go to the gym or your home gym/equipment, you'll be ready to get yourself one ragingly good workout! It's about WAY more than just mindlessly going through the motions in your workouts... it's about getting in the mentality that you're working to be the best you can be, and that you are unstoppable! It's about visualizing your body being as lean & mean as you want it to be... and your health so vibrant and energetic, that nothing is getting in your way to achieving everything you set out to achieve. Like I've said a thousand times before I'm sure but who's counting LOL , true lifelong fitness starts in your mind... and your body and spirit folow suit! They have to be and will be in sinc! Training and nutrition will also follow once your mind is in the right place.

  


The 360 degree turn around

Friday, May 29, 2009

Abraham Maslow believed that the need to grow, to reach our potential, and to self-actualize is an absolutely fundamental need.

According to Maslow, this need to actualize is not a "wish" or a "desire" or a "sure would be nice to have" kind of thing. It's a NEED (like that need we have for oxygen).

To the extent that we've taken care of our more basic needs and we're not satisfying this need to self-actualize, we're gonna live with anxiety, regret and disillusionment. Period.

The specific manifestation of our self-actualizing process is obviously unique and varies greatly from person to person. As Maslow points out, in one individual it may "take the form of the desire to be an excellent parent, in another it may be expressed athletically, and in still another it may be expressed in painting pictures or in inventing things."

However, in all cases, the question remains: What must you be?

Don't we as women spend billions of dollars every year in the quest for bettering ourselves, physically, mentally and emotionally. But did you know that good health is the best-kept beauty secret of all? And it's absolutely free with a little time and effort.
The way we eat. The way we sleep. The way we move. The way we breathe!

Recently and I do mean recently I was able to reconnect with someone who had been the biggest influence on my lifestlye about ten years ago but I had lost track of her and my life became so complicated that I couldn't cope any longer! My mind body and spirit became totally out of sinc!

Why must life be so complicated? The plain and simple truth is it doesn't have to be! Our lives are as complicated as WE ourselves make them!

The truth is we DON'T Have to spend billions when the simplicity of it all is right in front of us. Right under our noses! And what is that simplistic way of life?

Susan has made that so ubundantly clear to me after I reread her book STOP THE INSANITY! It has been a life altering eye opening life saver! She may be blunt and even crude at times but she calls it as she sees it There's no beating around the bush! And it's what I needed to make the 360 degree turn around in my life THANK YOU SUSAN POWTER!
