    Get More Out of Life
    Author unknown
            

    Do you accommodate everyone else's schedule before your own? Are you making time for everything in your life but yourself?  If you plead guilty, then it's time to stop committing personal sabotage!

    In today's demanding environment, it's hard to keep things in perspective. You can't avoid daily stresses, but you can learn to handle them effectively and stay in control. Maintaining a healthy balance between yourself and your work and family commitments will help you get the most out of life as well as your personal and professional relationships.

    Give Yourself a Chance

    Living a healthy lifestyle won't guarantee your health and happiness, but it's a good place to start. Make sure you get plenty of sleep, drink lots of water, exercise on a regular basis and eat nutritious meals. In addition, schedule regular check-ups with your doctor and dentist.

    Try to avoid caffeine, nicotine, alcohol, and any drugs that could hinder your ability to function at the top of your form.

    Write It Down

    You'll focus more clearly on goals, dreams, and the to-do list if you write them down. Keep things simple, but do give priority to relationships and obligations that are crucial. Don't create unrealistic aims by expecting perfection or trying to be something you're not. Be honest in evaluating your skills and preferences.

    Organize your home and work priorities in order of importance. Then decide how you can manage your time more effectively so that you'll maximize the time spent on what's really important to you.

    Kick Back

    If you don't have a hobby, find one. It can be anything you have fun doing and won't take too seriously.

    You might also try deep-breathing and relaxation techniques. These exercises have a calming, refreshing effect.  When you find yourself tensing up at work or at home, take a few minutes to relax, stretch, and breathe deeply.

    Think Positively

    Mental attitude is just as important as physical condition. Find productive ways to deal with anger, depression, stress, and other destructive emotions. Sometimes an activity as simple as a brisk 10-minute walk outdoors will work wonders.

    Try to keep your perspective; work hard to prevent minor aggravations or unimportant demands from getting the best of you. Concentrate on becoming flexible and practical. And learn to give in to compromise; sometimes it builds character.

    Resist the natural tendency to take negative events personally. Random calamities do happen; fate doesn't single you out.

    Make Time for You


    Everyone needs some time alone. Learn to enjoy your own company. Spend time pampering yourself--take a hot bath, read a best-seller, or visit a friend. Indulge and take time to celebrate yourself!

  • Hey Sweetie,

    Happy Monday!!!

    I hope you had a lovely weekend
    Mine was very nice
    My Razorbacks easily won the game Saturday, 42 - 3
    We moved up in the polls
    AP: 17th
    Coaches: 18th
    It was a game we were suppose to win easily
    And thank goodness we did
    Not one nerve was wracked
    : )
    Now this coming Saturday will be another story
    It is one of the most important games of the season
    We are not expected to win it
    It will be a very difficult game
    Against a very talented team
    We shall see if we're ready
    Fingernail guards ON!
                 
    I wish you a most beautiful day
     
    Peace and Love,
    AOM

    Attitude
    Author Unknown
    (Source)

     
    "Have you ever been around someone whose attitude is constantly negative or critical?  Someone who finds something bad about every situation or person in his or her life, and then makes sure to share his or her negative thoughts with everyone else.  This type of person can be an extremely negative force in our lives, but have you ever stopped to think what their lives are like?  How do they see the world?  Can they be enjoying their brief stay on this planet if they're always criticizing and complaining?  I don't think so.

    I have to say that I sympathize with those people more than most because I've been there.  Much of what's going on in those people's minds is a result of treatment they've received at the hands of others.  I've found out in recent years that much of my own lack of optimism has to do with my father's alcoholism--it's extremely common for adult children of alcoholics to feel a lack of hope, to wonder when everything's going to go wrong again, and to try to prepare ourselves mentally and emotionally for any let-downs.  And while I will never use my father's alcoholism as an excuse for any of my own behaviors, it's good to know that there's an explanation for the origin of the feelings.  In fact, I try very hard not to express negative thoughts when they cross my mind, but they do come out.  Dyslexics and people with ADD, as two examples, tend to have been criticized their entire lives for not performing up to their potential--they've been called lazy and have failed classes they should have passed because of a physiological problem, and they have a hard time thinking that things can turn out well in any situation.
       

    But the times when my negative attitude have been the strongest have been my darkest days.  Those have been the days when I've seen no hope for the future, when I've felt no possibility of change for the better.  I've seen everything darkly, but I've rarely shared that attitude with others.  Those have been the days of depression and fear, and I've never lived my life fully on those days.  As Longfellow points out, though, "Some days must be dreary."  I've had my share of dreary days, and I try to respect other people's dreary days.

    On the other hand, I've also had days when I've complained a lot.  Sometimes I've had good reasons to complain, other times I've complained about trivialities that really didn't matter in my life or in the lives of those around me.  Sometimes people have been unfair to me, but my reactions to that unfairness have caused me to have some pretty miserable days.  Those have been the days when I've dwelled on the unfairness, when I've focused so much of my energy on being angry or resentful that I've gotten little to nothing out of those particular days.  It's been pretty horrible to me, but I can imagine that it wasn't all that pleasant for those people around me, either.

    So where am I going with this?  Hang in there--the point is here.  I've found that I'm the only person in charge of my attitude.  I'm the only person who can control it, but even more important to me was learning that I can control it.  I've always felt that my attitude was a result of circumstances, but it's not.  In fact, very often circumstances are the result of attitude.  When I found out that my attitude was a result of my own thoughts, I finally felt that I had a grasp on making my own world a pleasant place to live in--nothing was out of my control if I just kept my attitude healthy.  And the result was beautiful--it's like a never-ending circle, for the positive attitude caused more positive things to happen, and with more positive things happening, I had more reason to feel positive, and it all felt quite good.  I also found that when I brought a bright and positive attitude to others, I was able to affect them positively, too, and put a bright moment or three in their lives, which made me feel wonderful.

    A negative attitude is the result of many factors, but it's not an uncontrollable result.  You do have a say in how your attitude is.  Carry around a negative attitude and people will not want to be around you and may avoid you, thus adding to that never-ending circle.  But show the world a positive attitude--even if that's not how you're feeling inside--and you'll start to see more positive things happening in your life, and soon that will be how you feel inside.  Life's too short and beautiful to look at darkly and hopelessly, so do your best to see it brightly, and share that brightness with others, and you'll see how much of a change you'll go through.  Nobody wants to see you be negative, but they also don't want to be dragged down, so they'll avoid you rather than help you.  Please, be someone who lifts others up, not someone who drags others down."

    The risk of love is loss,
    and the price of loss is grief -
    But the pain of grief is only a shadow
    when compared with the pain of never risking love.
              
    ~Hilary Stanton Zunin
             
    ~*~
                           
    Every great loss demands that we choose life again.  We need to grieve in order to do this.  The pain we have not grieved over will always stand between us and life.  When we don't grieve, a part of us becomes caught in the past like Lot's wife who, because she looked back, was turned into a pillar of salt.

    Grieving is not about forgetting.  Grieving allows us to heal, to remember with love rather than pain.  It is a sorting process. One by one you let go of the things that are gone and you mourn for them.  One by one you take hold of the things that have become a part of who you are and build again.
                                        
    ~Rachel Naomi Remen 
                 
    ~*~
                                             
    The reality is that you will grieve forever.  You will not "get over" the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it.  You will heal and you will build yourself around the loss you have suffered.  You will be whole again, but you will never be the same.  Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to.
                                 
    ~Elisabeth Kuebler-Ross and John Kessler
