Want to be happy? Be grateful.

Want to be happy? Be grateful.

It’s not happiness that brings us gratitude. It’s gratitude that brings us happiness. There is quite a lot going on right now in the world. News that I never thought I would hear on a daily basis seems to be quite common.  If you are like me, you try not to let the disturbing news affect you but some days it can be tough. I...

Healthy Living: Tips for a healthy, happy holiday season.

Again? Already? Yes it’s true.  We are heading into the busy holiday season and again I am shaking my head trying to figure out where in the world the year went.   Summer seemed to end too soon and the calendar tells us winter begins December 21.  So it seems like this week would be the perfect time to chat about things we can do for...

Ready to get healthy? Set a deadline and create goals.

“You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.” ~ Zig Ziglar. Cannot say it any better than Zig Ziglar.  If you want to reach your goals, you have to start.  So many people go off track before they even begin because they delay taking that first step – starting.  A few years ago, I read a fantastic...

Healthy Living: Do you REALLY need a reason to get healthy?

Ask yourself this question: Do you really need a reason to get healthy? It’s amazing what you find out when you chat with people.  Not sure if I have the type of face that makes people want to share but I have learned so many things while standing in line in the grocery store. Now to be fair, some of those things have made me blush...

Healthy Living: Be The Boss Of Your Body

Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live. Jim Rohn When you read that quote, it really puts things into perspective doesn’t it?  Our bodies are amazing but there is a tipping point if you do not take care of it and illness may set in.  Where will you go when that happens?  You cannot magically move into another body. ...

Healthy Living: Do as I say and now I do as I say too.

Healthy living means I also have to follow the rules. My goal is to live life fully with an optimistic attitude and share this attitude with those I meet.  The past few months, however, have been quite interesting for me. Challenging even. Challenging enough that I finally sucked it up and made a doctor appointment that I went to last week. You know.  Me. The...

Healthy Living: Exercise Doesn’t Have To Be Boring

I want to be healthy but exercise is boring! A week ago found me in Augusta, Georgia watching my brother complete his first half Ironman.  A half Ironman distance is 70.3 miles and includes 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike ride and finishes with a 13.1 (half-marathon) run. My mom and I drove up to meet my brother and his wife. We were the support...

Healthy Living: Why you need to love yourself today.

“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift of God, which is why we call it the present.”  Bill Keane Bucket list.  What a funny name for something that many of us keep.  I have not”officially” written down things I want to do but I have one.  The list is in my head and I’ve actually ticked a few items off that...

Stressed Equals Desserts?

Stressed Equals Desserts?

Ever notice that desserts is stressed spelled backwards?    So does that mean stressed equals we can eat desserts? Whew! What a crazy week we had in North Florida.  When you look at the big picture though, we were truly blessed that Ms. Hurricane Irma lost strength before arriving in Suwannee County. We are not out of the woods yet as hurricane season runs through...
