How many of us are listening to our bodies when they 'speak to us' of our health? How many are ignoring the signals their own body sends out when it's not being fed nutritional food?
I can't live my life to the fullest extent, if I'm ignoring my diet. My body has to 'move' with energy and well-being. Since I live on this earth (I'm not an angel with beautiful wings), I have to know what it takes to make me healthy in this world.
I find the best information for diet; recipes - overall well-being and excellent articles for answering my medical questions and needs. When I need this type of information, I'm usually heading to http://sparkpeople.com first! They have a complete medical encyclopedia just waiting for my use.
They encourage me to read and learn for my own benefit; they even give me 'spark points' for finding out new information that benefits me! I can plan my menus; learn about nutrition, and share ideas with other members. They are all so up-beat and inspiring individuals. SparkGuy - Chris - he's the young man that started this site - he strives every day to make this web-site better for its 2,000,000 plus members! In fact, I understand Spark People is the 3rd largest web-site that is read daily! Glad to know I'm 'hanging out' with the best!!
In fact, Chris reminds me of "Sparky" Anderson - how many times did this guy take the Cincinnati Reds to the World Series and win? After that, he 'sparked' my favorite base-ball team (Detroit Tigers) - another World Series win!
I also check up with my member-friends at http://about.com. I enjoy my visits here. I've met people from so many parts of the world. I notice how diets can differ. While our foods might vary, I still find such joy in the 'souls' and focused efforts of its many members.
Family is important to all of us. I like to update my 'outlook' on all this by checking in with http://familyeducation.com. Another favorite is http://www.kaboose.com.
And after I think about angels, I remember that there are many different religions that are all very inspiring. If one is trying to make a 'choice', well I know how I avoid some of that confusion (because I respect each and every religious concept). I just link up to http://aeu.org . Their focus is on ethics.
Ethics; threaded throughout each and every religion. My bear THIGS agrees. After all, his name stands for Truth, Honor, Integrity, Good Spirit - all the elements of any religion or philosophy that brings a quality life to each who adheres to a few basic principles. I'm partial to the GOLDEN RULE - simple; direct, and oh so effective!
I know one thing: I need 'spiritual food' to go with my fresh fruit and veggies each day. I cherish the words of Kahlil Gibran and all the words of wisdom he's written in over 40 books. He remains 'alive' years after his writings; here's where I find some of these http://kirjasto.sci.fi/gibran.htm.
I drink coffee with my husband; watch over his shoulder as he links up to one of his favorite topics http://earlyaviators.com. Because he was a fighter pilot in Vieg Nam, his lofe of planes and helicopters is constant!
I travel 'around the world' when I 'tune in' to the thousands of photos I find from diligent 'souls' who generously post their photographs on http://flickr.com. My daughter was asking about Antelope Canyon in Page, Arizona - I simply went to Flickr, and found over 14,000 photographs of this canyon that words can not describe - just a myriad of adjectives that one can use when the word beautiful comes to mind..............
Of course speaking of my daughter, I'm proud of her
and the business she's started - she is so sincere, and diligent; I keep her
web-site here for 'checking in' on what she's up to in Ohio. That spot I so
dearly love, is http://heronridge.net.
Often I decide I need to send a card to friends and family in my
life. I just sent in my $10 annual membership to keep those beautiful cards
handy. Here's that link that I use weekly http://jaquielawson.com.
This is how I start my life; my day is my life for the moment -
living in the moment means getting the most from every hour. Every hour turns
into another day completed with accomplishment; a night to look forward to a bit
of time to myself - the sun comes up, and I just do 'peat, and repeat' - and
peat never falls out. I do HEAR...................
