The 10 Commandments of Life

Tuesday, Aug, 5 2014


  These are like the Ten Commandments to follow in life all of the time!


  1.  Prayer is not a "spare wheel" that you pull out when in trouble, but it is a "steering wheel" that directs the right path throughout the journey.


  2.  So why is a Car's WINDSHIELD so large & the Rear View Mirror so small?   Because our PAST is not as important as our FUTURE. So, Look Ahead and Move on.


  3.  Friendship is like a BOOK. It takes a few minutes to burn, but it takes years to write.


  4.  All things in life are temporary. If going well, enjoy it, they will not last forever. If going wrong, don't worry, they can't last long either.


  5.  Old Friends are Gold! New Friends are Diamond! If you get a Diamond, don't forget the Gold! Because to hold a Diamond, you always need a Base of Gold!


  6.  Often when we lose hope and think this is the end, GOD smiles from above and says, "Relax, sweetheart, it's just a bend, not the end!


  7.  When GOD solves your problems, you have faith in HIS abilities; when GOD doesn't solve your problems HE has faith in your abilities.


  8.  A blind person asked Saint Anthony: "Can there be anything worse than losing eye sight?" He replied: "Yes, losing your vision!"


  9.  When you pray for others, God listens to you and blesses them, and sometimes, when you are safe and happy, remember that someone has prayed for you.


  10.  WORRYING does not take away tomorrow's TROUBLES, it takes away today's PEACE.

What Will Matter

Monday, Aug, 4 2014

WHAT WILL MATTER


Ready or not, some day it will all come to an end.
There will be no more sunrises, no minutes, hours or days.

All the things you collected, whether treasured or forgotten, will pass to someone else.
Your wealth, fame and temporal power will shrivel to irrelevance.

It will not matter what you owned or what you were owed.
Your grudges, resentments, frustrations and jealousies will finally disappear.

So too, your hopes, ambitions, plans and to-do lists will expire.
The wins and losses that once seemed so important will fade away.

It won’t matter where you came from or what side of the tracks you lived on at the end.

It won’t matter whether you were beautiful or brilliant.
Even your gender and skin color will be irrelevant.

So what will matter? How will the value of your days be measured?

What will matter is not what you bought but what you built,
not what you got but what you gave.

What will matter is not your success but your significance.

What will matter is not what you learned but what you taught.

What will matter is every act of integrity, compassion, courage or sacrifice that enriched,
empowered or encouraged others to emulate your example.

What will matter is not your competence but your character.

What will matter is not how many people you knew,
but how many will feel a lasting loss when you’re gone.

What will matter is not your memories but the memories of those who loved you.

What will matter is how long you will be remembered, by whom and for what.

Living a life that matters doesn’t happen by accident.
It’s not a matter of circumstance but of choice.

Choose to live a life that matters.

Our Train Journey

Friday, Aug, 1 2014

                Our Train Journey

Life is like a journey on a train...with its stations...with changes of routes...and with accidents!

At birth we boarded the train and met our parents, and we believe they will always travel on our side. However, at some station our parents will step down from the train, leaving us on this journey alone.

As time goes by, other people will board the train; and they will be significant i.e. our siblings, friends, children, and even the love of our life.  Many will step down and leave a permanent vacuum.  Others will go so unnoticed that we don't realize that they vacated their seats!

This train ride will be full of joy, sorrow, fantasy, expectations, hellos, goodbyes, and farewells. Success consists of having a good relationship with all passengers...requiring that we give the best of ourselves.

The mystery to everyone is:  We do not know at which station we ourselves will step down.  So, we must live in the best way - love, forgive, and offer the best of who we are.

It is important to do this because when the time comes for us to step down and leave our seat empty -- we should leave behind beautiful memories for those who will continue to travel on the train of life.

I wish you a joyful journey for the coming year on the train of life.  Reap success and give lots of love. More importantly, thank God for the journey!

Lastly, I thank you for being one of the passengers on my train!

FIVE THINGS YOU SHOULD NEVER EAT

Friday, Mar, 28 2014

Diet is the key to well-being, and there are five definite no-nos if you want to live a long and healthy life.

1. High-fructose corn syrup is found in many processed foods, so check labels carefully. This insidious substance makes your body crave fatty foods.

2. Hydrogenated oil also known as trans fats promotes hardening of the arteries.

3. Sugar gives you an insatiable urge to eat more carbohydrates. If you do eat sugar, a diet high in fiber will minimize its effects.

4. White flower, and products made from it, is nothing more than empty calories. It will also send blood glucose levels soaring.

5. Saturated fat is a major artery-clogger.

SURPRISING PLACES GERMS LURK IN THE GYM

Thursday, Mar, 27 2014

Pat yourself on the back if you regularly go to the gym to improve your fitness, strengthen your heart and lower your blood pressure. But before you pat yourself on the back, wash your hands. Gyms are a hotbed of germs and bacteria from the bathroom soap dispensers to the water fountains and just touching them and then touching your mouth or nose could make you sick, especially if your immune system is compromised. Prevention magazine has identified germ hot spots in the gym, some of which may surprise you.

1. Your gym bag
Where do you toss your gym bag? From the trunk of your car to the locker room floor, germs hitch a ride on the bottom of the bag. How to zap the germs: Keep a can of Lysol in your bag and spray it after each use.

2. Your water bottle
When you open the top of your water bottle after a workout where you have touched gym machines, fitness balls and the like, you are transferring the germs on your hands to the bottle top and then into your mouth. How to zap the germs: Get a reusable water bottle with a spout you can pull open with your mouth instead of your hands. Also, fill your water bottle at home.

3. TV remote control
How can anyone endure a treadmill without a TV? The built-in remote controls on cardio machines are breeding grounds for the worst kind of germs, including MRSA and E. coli. How to zap the germs: Don't touch your face while you're working out. Once you're done with the cardio machine, wash your hands with soap and water or use an alcohol-based gel.

4. Bathroom soap dispenser
while you're supposed to wash your hands you rid them of the harmful bacteria you've picked up in the gym, some of the worst germs are lurking in the bathroom soap dispensers. How to zap the germs: Use a paper towel to touch the soap dispenser before your hands touch it.

5. Water fountain
Forgot your water bottle? Not only is the button to turn on the water fountain rife with germs, but so is the spout.
