Good morning beautiful people! I so need to catch up on what everyone is writing about. Thanks for stopping by if I haven't been by your blogs to tell you yet. I had so much I wanted to write last week, but never took the time to sit done and type it. Which means I need to start back journaling. So I'm going to get my thoughts together and come back later. :-) But for now, I'll post something my aunt sent me many moons ago. I think #13 & #17 are priceless, as they are sometimes the most difficult and provide the path to inner peace and healing. Journey light! Luv, peace, and an abundance of blessings! E

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. When you wake up in the morning complete the following statement, 'My purpose is to __________ today. I am thankful for______________'

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

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

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

7. 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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

17. Forgive everyone for everything.

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

19. GOD heals everything.

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

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

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

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

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

Twenty-four excellent points, And #13 and #17 ARE priceless. In fact, if everyone did them the world would definitely be a better place. Your aunt is a very smart woman.

You had a question about soy versus almond milk on my blog. I'll do a comparison and write a post for you.

This is a great piece that has been floating around for a while. I need to start saying those waking and resting lines.
