Everyone Has a Story

Turns out it was true!

Like the title says, everyone has a story. I do. You do. Everyone does.  So what!

This isn’t meant to trivialize your story, but try to keep it in perspective.  We all have or will have health problems.  We all have our crosses to bear, if you don’t…you will.  What is important is how we deal with these crosses put upon us.  How do we deal with them… how do you deal with them?  Sometimes they turn into excuses.  The important thing is to stretch to your limits.  Like stretching a muscle you might just find that after a while you can stretch further then your could before.  Maybe that hill wasn’t as steep as you thought.  But most definitely you are not the only one who has climbed that hill or another just like it!

Life happens all of a sudden and not usually in the way we expect, the trick is accepting the blessings and curses as gifts.  Do this and you will find the value in the gift no matter how it changes the direction of your life.

Train hard, Stay Safe, Have Fun…but stop whining!! 😉

Crazy Cereal

When you go to the grocery store and stand in the cereal isle you can’t help but think…I must be crazy!  Well you just might be right but not because of the ridiculously high price of cereal or the low nutritional value of most cereals or even the sugar content.  No it turns out you/we might actually be crazy!  You see on February 19, 1906 William Kellogg established the Battle Creek Toasted Cornflake Company, selling breakfast cereals.  But you might be crazy because he originally developed as a health food for psychiatric patients!!  Something to think about the next time you hear…a balanced breakfast!

Bored?

“During a visit to the mental asylum, a visitor asked the Director “How do you determine whether or not a patient should be institutionalized”

“Well,” said the Director, “we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup and a bucket to the patient and ask him or her to empty the bathtub.”

“Oh, I understand,” said the visitor. “A normal person would use…

Before I finish this joke take a moment and answer the question…?  The answer is in the comments section.

The Real World is Outside…

Some times we need a reminder to be part of the real world…

To many of us are so connected (via technology) that we are disconnected from the real world and real world experiences.  While I love my computer and video games it disturbs me when I hear people replacing legitimate activities like going to the gym or a karate class for playing on the Wii, PS3 or xBox!  Yes they do increase activity though the way most people use them they are not a form of exercise.  And don’t even get me started on texting over having a real conversation!!  Don’t forget there is a real world out there, despite what your computer or video commercials may tell you.

We had another snow storm here in New England, they forecast 4-8 inches we woke up to 15-18 inches!  After a few hours of shoveling, cleaning the cars, snow-blowing and plowing this gave me a much needed smile (Thanks Chuck), hope it does the same for you…

That’s a Lot of Snow!

During this busy time of year we often forget the simple things that are most important, love, charity, and kindness to name a few.  This is the one time of year we are supposed to remember these things above all others, unless you are a Scrooge!  The following video is awesome because it demonstrates the joy we should feel and the way the season should move each of us.

One question, if you were in the crowd, would you have stood and joined in or would you leave the singing to the professionals?
