This tip is from Cleveland Clinic Chief Wellness Officer Mike Roizen, MD, from his new book, "This Is Your Do-Over". Here's a sneak peek at his essential do-over deeds.
We all have disagreements sometimes. Life isn't about holding hands and singing happy tunes to hide our troubles. However, you need to decide if you want to be a "but" or an "and" kind of person. The "but" people don't want solutions. They want to settle. They want to wallow in their misery.
The "and" people find solutions to problems. They inspire others to do their best. They contribute to the growth of people and ideas - and, ultimately, to the health of us all. Even if you are an avowed lifelong naysayer, you still have the opportunity to discover your inner enthusiast. Once you find your purpose and passion, your optimism will increase and your do-over becomes stronger and stronger. In the end, optimism is really just about cultivating happiness in your everyday moments.
Infuse your life with action. Don't wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen... yourself, right now, right down here on Earth. ~Bradley Whitford~
Thanks for the info on the challenges you are doing. I will save the info for the future. My plate is pretty full with the Beck team right now and my knee has been giving my trouble for months and I'm afraid to irritate it more so I will have to be content to plug along at a slower pace.
Come , little leaves " said the wind one day . Come down to the meadow to play Put on your dresses of red and gold For the summer is past And the days grow cold . Dancing and leaping The leaves went along Until the winter called them To end this sweet song Soon fast asleep In their earthy beds The snow lays a cover over their heads .
We got 6 inches of snow and just lazy light powder coming down tonight. Sore from shoveling the walks but don't think it will last too long! I built a snowman and made 3 snow angels in the front lawn!! So glad I had the mittens and boots within easy reach! 11 days ago
