About what this day means to me

Today I would like to change it up a little with what this day means to me. When 911 happened I was on my way to work and I stopped by to get some gas and when I went in to pay they had a TV with on and the first plane had hit. I was in shock about it and called my wife to let her know. I was on my way to a job I had going that was a mile away from the Pentagon. I had the radio on and had just pulled a door off its hinges when I felt the ground shake and I heard a loud explosion. Then all of a sudden I heard fire engines and saw helicopters flying and then jets going thru the sky. Then on the radio they said what happened. I never put a door back together so fast and called my wife to say I’m coming home. There were police cars everywhere and roads were being blocked off and I kept running into delays. I was a little panicked and started driving a little crazy on back roads to get to my house which was about 25 miles away. I thought about my family all the way just wanting to see them and that they were ok. Phone service went out and I could not even call. I did get home about an hour later and felt so much better, but then I started watching TV. I took a couple days off work thinking that something else might happen. Well nothing else happened but the horror of watching what was happening in New York was bad. It was like a really bad dream that would not go away. We all made it thru with much prayer and things were getting back to normal. For some though who lost family and had to go thru that terrible time things will never be back to normal and every year on this date they are reminded about that terrible day. So today say a prayer for those who have lost loved ones and for our military who continue to fight for our freedom. We have so much to be thankful for and we should treat every day as a gift. Have a Wonderful Day!!


I Love the Facebook World

Happy Wednesday! I hope your day so far has been a good one! I would like to welcome the new people to my blog. My name is Jim and I am on a mission to help you to live a more balanced life with better health and to be able to do the things that good health brings you. You cannot really be a success if your health is not good. When you went on Facebook you probably did it as a way to be accountable for your healthy journey and to find out what other people are doing to be healthier. Then you found a wonderful support system where people are willing to share their healthy tips in eating and exercise. Then you had some drive going and then you started to make friends and talk on a regular basis and you felt connected and ready to make your health dreams a reality. Facebook has made it easy to have this great community of likeminded people all over the world whose goals are to live a better life. Well, there is more for you out there. Some of you have become coaches and your new mission is to really get to the core of health and help people become like you and to feel good about themselves and sometimes even make some money at it. I myself have learned so much since I have got on board and it has changed my life. I never wrote anything before going to Facebook and food was still a big mystery to me as far as what is good and bad. I have made so many friends and recently got to meet one in person and this would not been possible in any other venue. Being disabled does not stop me from being the best I can be and getting healthier is a big bonus. You can do anything that you set your mind to. You have unlimited power to be who you always wanted to be and all you have to do is believe it can happen. Start today to dream of that perfect life with abundant health and living a life of success. You can do this! You were born to be a success!! Just do it now!! Have a Wonderful and Healthy day!!

What do you want?

What do you want?
I want to share a small post with you today about you. You were born to do great things in your life and do what you want to do. Most people just go thru the motions each day; they wake up to a clock and don’t eat properly before rushing out the door, then they set in some traffic to get to a job they really don’t like. They barely make it the eight or nine hours then go home and eat and then watch TV and then repeat. Their weekends are time for having a little fun, drinking a few drinks and maybe grilling out and then more TV. Then it is Monday! Does this seem about right? This is not what you were born to do! It starts with getting up. What you do every day is what makes the difference from living the life I just described or living a life of your dreams. If your job is something that you don’t like doing then it is time for a change. You might then say” I can’t do anything else that will give me that kind of money”. You are wrong, you can get another job or start a small business and make even more. It will change when you change. You have to do things differently to make your life better. Maybe it’s time for going to school again and learning a new trade or maybe you have had an idea but you never acted on it and now you should.” Well, I don’t have enough time”. You would if you didn’t watch TV every night. You would if you got up a little earlier and went to bed at an earlier time. These are things you can do now to change your life from boring to fulfilling. You can do this! This is what successful people do. They are avid readers who sometimes read two or three books a week. They go to seminars and take the latest classes to stay on top of their game. They don’t watch much TV and they spend more quality time with their family. They take nice vacations to wonderful places and really enjoy the fruits of their labor. They are just like you! They have what they have because they made better choices, and most did not just inherit it. Try to not watch so much TV for a week or so and you will find you don’t really have to do it. I stopped watching so much TV and the shows I thought I could not live without are now just a memory. I get up each day at the same time and go to bed at the same time and I for sure get more done. Start thinking about the life you would love to live and write down actions steps you can take now to make your life better. It will not happen overnight but you can change your life for the better starting today. Go ahead and start working on the Life of your Dreams! There are 119 days left of this year. Are you where you thought you would be? Or are you right where you knew you would be? Make the choice and start today!! Have a Wonderful and Healthy Day!!
