I've Got A Secret

Thursday, April 24, 2014

" If you got something you don't want others to know keep it in your pocket ." Muddy Waters

Sometimes you have a secret and you just have to shout it out loud . You don't want everyone to know . So you trust your best friend. Then they have a burden sometimes to hard to hold secret and they have to let it out. You know what happens next ,right , the whole darn neighborhood finds out.

So next time you have an important secret hold it in your pocket or in your heart . Keep it in. Yeah I know it's hard but do it. Just keep smiling because only you have the knowledge and that makes it way powerful.

Sometimes it's necessary not to let anyone in on your weight loss goals , or exercise routine. Everyone has a comment and they are all not nice . So if you want keep it your pocket. Keep the knowledge hidden until you are tough enough to withstand the pressure and speculation . Then when someone asks if you lost weight you can say Did I? Hugs , Happiness and Healthy Living

    emoticon Love Muddy that's not a secret !! But I do put my goals out to keep me accountable and its working - plus the fact that many secrets held in can make you sick , as I have held on to too many secrets in my past , I put my goals out and if I fail I do not get disappointed cause I learn from every experience - life is not perfect nor a secret for me as I feel I have nothing to hide - good blog Hugs k

    emoticon ...... You are so right ...... I feel sometimes I have 'ex-nayed' myself by sharing .......... Because once shared, it is no longer a secret as you say .......... also some of the magic seems lost .......... (I also found this out when telling friends ?) names picked out for my expected baby and they would always put their 2 cents in! ............. emoticon sheesh!!

Some people thrive on being publicly accountable for their weight loss by telling everyone their goals- then if they fail they feel miserable, like they've let down the world and his wife as well as themselves.

Better to go gently and moderate and rejoice when the positives arrive- be they weight loss or life goals.
A nice surprise for everyone too when you announce it!

Jump Right In

Wednesday, April 23, 2014

Whatever you can do, or dream you can , begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. " Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe


Come on jump right in the water is fine . You can do this . You will do this . You just need to start . Be bold , be creative. Step up, step in , just take a step. Begin.

Ready Set Go. Your on your way to success , with a little adventure thrown in.

Don't hold back, don't doubt, or question, hem or huh , just go, go , go.

I did this yesterday at work. I heard that another department I sometimes helped out in was having overtime Saturday with just a few spots open. My manager was out. So I took the step and was bold enough to email the head of the department directly and ask. Guess who is one of the lucky ones working overtime Saturday?!!!! .

So go on ,create a great happy healthy life., You can do it you just have to begin.
Hugs , Happiness and Healthy Living.

Naturally Happy

Tuesday, April 22, 2014

" Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you." Frank Lloyd Wright


The best thing you can do for yourself is be at piece with nature. Take a hike. Work in your garden. Watch or feed the birds. Go fishing or camping.

Get far enough away from the city that you can see the stars and breathe the fresh cool mountain air. Go to your local seashore and watch the dolphins and the sea gulls. Visit a lake get your toes wet and sit in the shade of a mighty tree.

Learn which animals are almost extinct and get in the fight to save them. Help to preserve nature for the future .
We were born of the earth and will return to it someday. Until then spend more time with nature you will be happier and more content. Hugs, Happiness and Healthy Living

Enjoy Every Sandwich

Monday, April 21, 2014

" Enjoy every Sandwich." Warren Zevon


This world is a rush rush fast pace place. We are constantly moving and grooving we never seem to have the time. We don't even have the time to slow down,

You should make it your quest to slow down when you eat. Set the table , Bring out the candles , the special colorful dishes, the pretty napkins. Some soft soothing music should be paying in the background. You should have small , intimate conversations while you eat. No politics, gossip , or fighting allowed.

You should also slow down to really taste your food. Smell it, feel its textures on your tongue. Taste the spices in each dish, each ingredient gives the dish a different taste. Enjoy, savor ,if you do this you will eat less , and enjoy your food more.

Don't just stop there , but learn to enjoy all aspects of your day. Listen to the birds on your walks and feel the sun and breeze on your skin.
Learn to enjoy the good parts of your job. Lunch with friends a talk with a co worker ,learning a new task. Accomplishing something really hard should bring you enjoyment.

Enjoy everything. Hugs , happiness and healthy Living

    I do pretty much all of what you said......except the eating. Truthfully I find sitting down to a meal ( usually eat by myself) boring. Yes I do all the wrong things. I read while I eat or I watch TV. But I do savour what I am eating and I don't overeat As for listening to the birds sing, or enjoying the view and smelling the trees and the greenery, even the mud, yup that I am good on!!!!

    I do try very hard to rejoice in each aspect of my days.

Sure beats dwelling on the seemingly negatives of life.

Home Is Where The Heart Is

Sunday, April 20, 2014

" You can never go home again, but the truth is you can never leave home ,so it's all right. " Maya Angelou


Today is Easter . A day for celebrating with families . A day to follow traditions and make new ones.

Today we think about sacrifice, renewal ,and resurrection . It's a time of new beginnings ,fresh starts , and celebrating new life in spring. We know we can never go back. We rival in the memories of yesterday. We begin our path for tomorrow.

Each second of every day is new and exciting a chance for change and growth , and promise. May this most Holy Day of Easter give you a feeling of promise and happiness for the future. Hugs, ,Happiness and Healthy Living.

    I spent a wonderful Easter day with family and celebrated another year of a long family tradition of Easter ham and all the fixings but took small portions of a little of everything. I still feel a little to full from all the food but compared to other years, I know I stuck to my limits of how much I wanted to eat.
I hope you are having a wonderful day with family and celebrating another beautiful Easter! We are so lucky to have so much!
Have a great day!
