2/28/2008 12:40:22 PM
  These are really very powerful. Implement whatever you can.


1. Take a 10-30 minute walk every day. And while you walk, smile. It is the ultimate anti-depressant.


2. Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day. Buy a lock if you have to.


3. Buy a DVR tape your late night shows and get more sleep.


4. When you wake up in the morning complete the following statement, 'My purpose is to __________ today.'


5. Live with the 3 E's -- Energy, Enthusiasm, and Empathy.


6. Play more games and read more books than you did in 2007.


7. Make time to practice meditation, yoga or stretching, and prayer. They provide us with daily fuel for our busy lives.


8. Spend more time with people over the age of 70 and under the age of 6.


9. Dream more while you are awake.


10. Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food that is manufactured in plants.


11. Drink green tea and plenty of water. Eat blueberries, wild Alaskan salmon, broccoli, almonds & walnuts.


12. Try to make at least three people smile each day.


13. Clear clutter from your house, your car, your desk and let new and flowing energy into your life.


14. Don't waste your precious energy on gossip, energy vampires, issues of the past, negative thoughts or things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.


15. Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn. Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like algebra class but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime.


16. Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a college kid with a maxed out charge card.


17. Try & pay an honest compliment to someone you wouldn't normally.


18. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.


19. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.


20. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.


21. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.


22. Make peace with your past so it won't spoil the present.


23. Don't compare your life to others'. You have no idea what their journey is all about.


24. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.


25. Frame every so-called disaster with these words: 'In five years, will this matter?'


26. Forgive everyone for everything.


27. What other people think of you is none of your business.


28. GOD  heals & transforms everything YOU LET HIM!!!!   



29. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.


30. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends will.  Stay in touch.

31. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.

32. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.

33. The best is yet to come.

34. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.

35. Do the right thing!

36. Call your family often.

37. Each night before you go to bed complete the following statements: I am thankful for __________. Today I accomplished _________.

38. Remember that you are too blessed to be stressed.

39. Enjoy the ride. Remember this is not Disney World and you certainly don't want a fast pass. You only have one ride through life so make the most of it and enjoy the ride.

40. Please Forward this to your friends.

May your troubles be less,
May your blessings be more,
May nothing but happiness come through your door! – Arlene Selgas-Mikel

Thanks Again Vince,

Definitely wise words to live by.  I appreciate you for sharing them with us.

In the day to day, Hurry & Scurry of today's world, I'm sure that we all think that we know what ASAP means.  But do we really?  My Grandmother had a somewhat different meaning for these letters.

Generally, we think of ASAP in terms of even more hurry & stress in our lives.  Maybe if we think of this abbreviation in a different manner, we will begin to find a new way to deal with those rough days along the way.  There's always work to do, deadlines to meet and you've got no time to spare.  But as you hurry & scurry, just ASAP, Always Say A Prayer.  In the midst of family chaos, 'quality time' is rare.  So, just do your best, and let God do the rest, and just remember to ASAP, Always Say A Prayer.  It may seem like your worries are more than you can bear; so slow down, take a breather, and ASAP, Always Say A Prayer.

God knows how stressful life can be, and He wants to ease our cares.  He will always respond to our needs ASAP, if we will just Always Say A Prayer.

God Bless You My Friend,


“There may be trouble all around, but I am calling you to a place of peace. Be still and know that I am God. Come to Me, and I will give you wisdom, strength, and grace for everything you face." Psalm 46:10
