Stay Busy, Stay Strong

There is no better way to stay positive, eat less, and stay healthy then to keep doing positive things in your life. You know things you love to do, things that make you happy. Let me ask you this: When you are whitewater rafting, riding your bike through the mountains, or hiking atop a glacier, were you thinking about food? NEVER! Now it would be a little challenging to do those things daily but you can certainly keep busy doing other things like going for a walk, reading a book, learning a new language, or even picking up a new hobby. If you keep yourself busy with life you certain make less time for eating, and less time soaking in any negatives!

It sounds weird but it is so simple and I am doing it right now! As if working a full time job and keeping up with my regular blog post is not enough, in my last post you will see I have taken on a number of goals. My April goals really amount to eating healthier, eating less, and exercising more. Those are certainly not bad ways to keep busy.

My goals certainly got the best of me over this last week. I am not here to make excuses but I am here to say that I stumbled upon numerous challenges only in week one. You know what? I did not meet all my goals, but I have done something more important than that, I kept busy and I tried my best! That is really all you can ask of yourself and I am positive that there is room for improvement.

One of my goals was I wanted to do 50 miles a week walking, biking, or kayaking. Even though I showed signs of failure in this goal only doing 30 miles, I am not gonna give up. All these new goals have certainly kept me busy and tested my will power but I only look at the positive side of my efforts and I have 5 fewer pounds to show for it.

Please share your GOALS, CHALLENGES, and STORIES right here or on my Facebook page, and be sure to share my posts with your friends.

Test this out for yourself. I am no doctor but just keep yourself busy with things you love and watch your mood and your health change. Love your life, it is the only one you have!

I’M NOT DONE YET!

Sometimes you have to give up everything to find the one thing you want the most. Only the strong can make that risk. Only the strong can let go of every comfort they know. Only the strong can venture away from a career they have mastered for something new. Only the strong can walk away from people that love you and the people you love. Only the strong can fail 100’s of times and still reach for what is right in their heart. We can do anything. You can do anything, you are strong. You just have to take that risk and get started. There are better things out there for your life, you have to be strong enough to go after them.

Slowly but surely I will find where I belong and search the planet to find those that share my same views as we unite. I will climb my mountain of failures and raise a flag that says “I’M NOT DONE YET” If I can breathe there is still hope for something better. If I have a heart beat I can still love, and my soul will guide me. All I have to do is listen, hope for the best in life and be grateful for anything hope brings me because this is my life! I decide my life.

The easiest most attractive path is not always the right one and before long you are too comfortable for change. Get uncomfortable and change your path. Change your life, take risks, and be strong. You are not done yet!

Marilyn Monroe FQF

“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go. Things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right. You believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”
-Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe was born an orphan and became one of the most iconic actress, model, singers of all time. That alone shows inspiration that anything is possible. It takes a strong person so shuffle through life and keep the attitude that everything happens for a reason. It is a scientific fact that people physically and mentally change all their lives. Learning to let go of that which was once wonderful is the real challenge. Our whole life should be a continuous learning experience. Things will go wrong but we need to focus on the good that came from those wrongs. Every time when something has fallen apart in my life something better seems to fall into place….weird how that work. There is no time limit on your life just keep going. When you get to that point of assumed perfection and it falls apart you got to once again step back and see what good came of it, trust that everything happens for a reason, take chances, and move on. Your life is an adventure not a chore. Just like thing go wrong with your car things will go wrong with your life. We need maintenance too. No matter what path your life started on find your yellow brick road and proceed. When you are falling, when you least expect it someone is going to be there to catch you or pick you back up.LET THEM!

Marilyn Quote over load! These all speak to me in one way or another, and carry their own meaning.

“I restore myself when I’m alone.”

Marilyn Monroe

“I’ve never dropped anyone I believed in.”

Marilyn Monroe

“I don’t want to make money, I just want to be wonderful.”

Marilyn Monroe

“A wise girl kisses but doesn’t love, listens but doesn’t believe, and leaves before she is left.”

It was a long quote explanation this week but thank you for reading. Have a great weekend everyone.

FQF Charles Darwin

“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.”
Charles Darwin

This is quite an evolutionary quote! Ha, had to be cheesy there for a minute. Some of us stay fit to live a longer more healthy life, some of us will learn everything we possibly can to enrich our lives. But everything comes down to change. When life is streaming by means of our perfection, what if something were to knock that out of place? Can you adapt to starting your life over again? Do you have the mindset take on a new career? Can you walk away from a lost love of your life and find love again someday? If you lose a limb or one of your senses can you filter in how that is going to change your life? What if many of those things are happening all at once?

 

It is all in your mental and even physical strength for change. Always stay healthy, always keep learning for sure, but always be ready for change. Change and adapting is part of our lives, we have no choice, so we need to learn to embrace those differences. Love your life, Love what is handed to you. Cherish the things that come and go and maybe even come back and go again! Every day we wake up is a new day, don’t waste it, don’t wait. Look at that day how you will, but make the best of it because each minute that passes by, never comes back.

 

Have a great weekend everyone! Try something different this weekend, see if it changes your life!
