The days are hot - the afternoons are crispy!
Looking up at the late afternoon sky here in Port Elizabeth
the feeling of contentment is overwhelming
to be living in such a beautiful part of the world
April is for Rising-up
Cancer and Birth defects causing insulation tape
Since when has it become O.K to cause harm as long as you tell them about it in the small print. Has businesses got no more scruples and integrity left. Is it just about profits- it seems they don't care who suffer as long as they get their money.
Lately things has been happening in our part of the world that has made everybody hair rise by the mere thought of eating Hot-dog or pizza. It has come to light that all processed meat in our country are made from leftover like ears, snouts and what-ever's! Slime made from bones and what-ever is a big part of the processed meat manufacturing process. Worse of all it gets imported from who-knows-where.
After many has died and hundreds are sick. The CEO of the processing-company try's to justify the situation by standing up and say; "The listeria percentage in our processed foods are not that high! There are others that are higher"
Lets rather leave this slimy subjects and get back to the reason for this post
Imagine buying Cancer on a roll
Since when is it OK to cause knowing harm to anybody! As long as you tell them of your intentions in the small print.
Do you guys ever read the label of the products you use or is it only the people from California that read label and inquire if the products has any harmful chemicals in them.
I know I'm guilty!
Sometimes I scan new food products label to check for the "ose percentages", oses are main cooperates that mess around with your insulin levels.
Different types of oses;
Only recently did I actually read the label of my favorite insulation tape. Seeing the warning on the packaging has really got me cooking because never mind the ones I bought myself but what about the ones I bought for the people that help me out.
Hopefully time will reveal a solution on how to deal with this pickle. You can be sure I will never purchase the brand again.
Nothing sets your day up more Positively than a Gratitude mindset.
Saying thank you for another day, another opportunity to be Grateful!
Having your best-friend and children close is great
Spending time with them is the Best
Enjoy the little things
Let the Easter Spirit in
It is time to Rise - Getup
Snow blindness, (photokeratitis) happens when there's too much ultraviolet entering
And we all have experience photokeratitis some stage
Others can see what you cannot see.
Most of time this blindness is not always due to the ultraviolet light
the blindness effect could have been caused by
some other overload entering.
Getting the affected soul to see again is possible
but in most cases the photokeratitis will leave behind a permanent effect
Time will tell
February is gone and we are halfway in March.
What Half! Where did the time go?
Been on the otherside aren't we supposed to be able to manage ourselves better? By now we all know one cannot manage time, we also know there is no such a thing as time
The sun comes up and when the sun goes down its dark. What we do during the light and dark period is all a matter of choice
Matter of choice
You think it a matter of your choice but mostly your daily activity-choice gets determine by other people like your debt collectors, religious leader or health officers.
Since I have introduce time-blocks into my days, I am living less of the same day over and over.
The is nothing wrong with living the same days, what gets to me is that we get use to bumping your toe against the same rock. We are settling!
There are life changing good stuff that you wanna do but which you never get time for because you are living the same day
By setting a time for the important stuff it's like having a to-do-list for the important things. While list making is my main organising tool using Google calendar has made it so easy to introducing work and important life ethics into one source and a means to stay on track. (will tell you in another post how google has improved my things)
My current timeblocks
Would love to hear from you how you keep yourself from living the same day over and over
What to do
What are you going to do Christopher Robin?
I want to live to be a 100
minus one day
That I never have to live without you
I get asked a lot why do I say " See you on the Otherside".
The phrase has not dark or morbid hidden meaning. Although I sure one-day we will meet each other on the others-side of the moon.
We love swimming and started to use the phrase when we swim. Meaning;-the talking stops now and we will see each other again on the other-side of the pool after swim or after a 1000 meter ocean swim.
For my swimming partners Nadine and Edward "see you on the otherside" means it is time to get to business at hand - get in water, get your head-down and SWIM!
Stopping while you in the ocean means the riptide is going to take you somewhere.
Using "see you on the otherside" in our everyday living means the same as it means in the water.
Getting to the otherside is important but not the Alfa and Omega
To Kindle our passion we swim on average 3 times a week, which gives you 156 swim on average a year. Not a lot for something you love.
156 Enjoyments Left
They say the average life expectancy of an adult is up to 68 years some country(japan) live longer and I sure in South Africa it must much lower. Deduct your age from 68 times it with 368 days equals the mornings you have left for Enjoyment.
156 times this year to see you on the otherside is not a lot of swims for enjoyment.
We always use to say "We are eat our Frog first thing in the morning" because getting up at 4.15 in the morning for our 5 o clock swim was extremely hard. (must say the long walk on the beach made the efforts easier)
At first the aim was just to reach the otherside once again. Been unfit and trying to swim again was hard. Fortunately there is a thing called Muscle-memory. and getting into swimming was easier that I thought.
Muscle-Memory is a word I picked up from the youngster in the gym. That's another plus I got from eating-my-frog early on my off morning, I would go fool around in the weight section. Man! this section was a eye-opener because I come from a generation that did not do the gym-thing.
If you want to see commitment and dedication firsthand go to the weight section of a gym. My experiences as a new old fart in the weight section is a age restricted story for another day
Most limiting-fitness-mental-blocks are now history and having fun while getting fitter is the goal. No longer do I let magic-mornings-slip-me-by. I plan them to make sure I get the most out of them
What is your strategies to get the most out of your controlled morning. to make each sunrise special.
Will I See you on the Otherside!
For the average American $75 000 will keep them away from poverty and make them buy things they think that will make them happy
In Africa its not so simple to pinpoint the amount of happiness because of diversification from the different cultures
Nothing is so simple
that it cannot be
