It’s all good!

It's all good!

This was an appropriate, classic gift I received from my Mom.  I use this phrase quite often  because I believe in life that  “It’s all good…if YOU MAKE IT GOOD!”  Yes, life has hurdles, valleys, lowpoints and it is stressful; however, it also has peaks, highpoints,sunrises,sunsets and so much more.  Much of life depends on what you choose to do with it all, how you choose to make it and how you perceive it all on a regular basis. I can choose to perceive life and the glass as half full, or I can choose to perceive life and the glass as half empty. I can also choose to look at life and the weather forecast as ” partly cloudy” , or ” partly sunny.” What IS your choice, what do you CHOOSE???

Go GUMBY Style!

BE LIke Gumby!

When I think of Gumby, I think of a flexible, bendable character from my childhood days. He was a cute, smiling little guy and perhaps we should all be a little bit more “flexible” in our daily routines and life events? Must we always WIN in an argument, or even a discussion that evolves into a difference of opinion?  Are we so rigid that we do not listen to the other person’s thoughts/feelings? Flexibility and adaptability to life situations can be quite effective to reduce one’s stress levels, plain and simple. Give it a try, keep Gumby in mind and work on that flexibility by stretching your thoughts , your mind,everyday and holding for 10 seconds prior to responding. Flexibility can be improved upon like all fitness components and in this sense it is no different, practice, practice, practice!!
