Potential counts for a lot; but heart, desire, and will can take a dream from potential to possible.
CONTINUING THIS WEEK ON A NEW SERIES, DESIRE WITHIN AND FINISHING ON LIVING SUCCESSFULLY WITH SCREWED-UP PEOPLE. PLUS, CONTINUING ON THE BOOK TEN-MINUTE RELAXATION FOR MIND AND BODY.
Countdown to some cooler weather, Autumn arrives in 18 days.
It’s Monday and Labor Day here in the states.
So, this is a good start in opening up this post!
SEPTEMBER – 5th, Dan and I thought on continuing this segment with the series with some fun; What is it about September that’s so significant during this month?
Labor Day – September 5, 2022
Summer’s final fling has arrived in the form of Labor Day.
Yes, most of us get the day off, but this holiday triggers mixed emotions.
While summer still has 18 calendar days left, it’s time to get serious.
School’s starting and there’s a sense that summer vacation is over.
So, what’s behind Labor Day and how did it earn a place as a federal holiday?
Let’s take a look.
Labor Day always falls on the first Monday in September, which means anywhere from September 1 through September 7.
This year it's September 5 in the U.S. and Canada.
However, this is not the case for most countries.
The majority of which celebrate on May 1.
Do you get weekends off work?
An eight-hour workday?
If you said “yes” to any of these questions, you can thank labor unions and the U.S. labor movement for it.
Years of hard-fought battles (and the ensuing legislation they inspired) resulted in many of the most basic benefits we enjoy at our jobs today.
On the first Monday in September, we take the day off to celebrate Labor Day and reflect on the American worker’s contributions to our country.
There’s disagreement over how the holiday began.
One version is set in September 1882 with the Knights of Labor, the largest and one of the most important American labor organizations at the time.
The Knights in New York City held a public parade featuring various labor organizations on September 5, with the aid of the fledgling Central Labor Union (CLU) of New York.
Subsequently, CLU Secretary Matthew Maguire proposed that a national Labor Day holiday be held on the first Monday of each September to mark this successful public demonstration.
In another version, Labor Day in September was proposed by Peter J. McGuire; a vice president of the American Federation of Labor.
In spring 1882, McGuire reportedly proposed a general holiday for the laboring classes to the CLU; which would begin with a street parade of organized labor solidarity and end with a picnic fundraiser for local unions.
McGuire suggested the first Monday in September as an ideal date for Labor Day because the weather is great at that time of year, and it falls between July 4th and Thanksgiving.
Oregon became the first U.S. state to make it an official public holiday.
29 other states had joined by the time the federal government declared it a federal holiday in 1894.
Maguire or McGuire?
Dan and I, welcome you to weigh in!
As we continue to blog about desires within, to us this is the same as goals, dreams and achieving.
However, it also depends on what your perception is in life!
What is the point of life?
Beyond simply saying that the point is to just stay alive.
A thinker sees their own actions as experiments, as attempts to find out something.
Success and failure are for their answers above all. – Friedrich Nietzsche
What Is Missing in Your Life?
Do you know what's missing in your life that holds you back from living life to the fullest and your desires?
The meaning of life is found when we understand our true reality.
The true reality projects our internal reality to our external world.
When we discover our purpose, we find that the meaning of life is simply to live toward our chosen purpose.
Once we find our purpose, we then have a reason to live and remain alive.
This does not mean to live for other people.
It has to be larger than that, so that your purpose and meaning never die.
Tomorrow Dan and I will be posting on how finding out what aspects of life require your immediate attention, and what you need in order to live the life you want; Fine Tuning Our External Reality.
Time is precious and is priceless, so Dan and I will continue each day to pull from a box of 365 inspirational quotes; one quote and share with you.
TODAY IS A BRAND-NEW DAY; A DAY TO HEAL, A DAY TO LOVE, A DAY TO FORGIVE, A DAY TO ENCOURAGE, A DAY TO START AFRESH.
Today Dan and I will be continuing on the book; ten-minute relaxation, For mind and body by Jennie Harding.
Whenever you are feeling under pressure, ten minutes is all you need to relax totally, using tools that are with you at all times; your senses.
This book is packed full of wonderfully simple ideas and exercises for using sight, taste, smell, hearing, and touch and that vital sixth sense of intuition to rebalance your energies and bring you back into harmony with the natural world around you.
Identify your favorite sensory relaxation solutions and combat that stress!
Per Dan and my experience this is another component in keeping ourselves healthy; meditation.
By using your five senses, you can learn to relax in just ten minutes.
CHAPTER 2; THE SENSORY JOURNEY
LOOKING AFTER YOUR EYES-
First exercise, PALMING-
1. Rub the palm of your hands together very briskly, until you feel a build-up of heat and a tingling sensation.
2. Then simply place your palms gently over your eyes.
3. You can choose to keep them open or closed, as you prefer.
4. You should be able to feel your warm and tingling hands soothing your eyes.
5. Relax, for a moment or two.
6. Repeat the palming 3 times.
Tomorrows eye exercise is, SIMPLE EYE ACUPRESSURE-
As I ponder over all that I have learned, I have come to the findings that we all have our own blueprint.
Our bodies are precious and there are many components in taking care of them.
Throughout the blog, Dan and I have related the different ways through body, heart and soul.
It’s all about power of knowledge and learning to take care of yourself, keeping your cells happy.
Our immune system is one of the key factors in keeping healthy.
It’s important to know how it works!
Today, what does be immunocompetent mean?
Being immunocompetent means that the immune system is working properly and that the body is capable of mounting an appropriate immune response, when necessary.
A person who is immunodeficient has an immune system that is not working as it should be, and would not be considered immunocompetent.
In particular, the level of immunocompetence depends on a healthy thymus, which in concert with the other endocrine glands directs the activities of the immune system.
When health fails, or excessive demand is made on the immune system by way of infection or mental or physical trauma, the thymus, overworked, becomes exhausted, shrinks in size and loses function.
Physical trauma includes toxemia, a great deal of which is produced within the body from wrong food, as previously described.
Contributing to toxemia, however, are a great number of other substances harmful to the body and its immune system such as all drugs, medicinal or otherwise, antibiotics, tranquillizers, pain killers, aspirin and so on, nicotine, exhaust fumes, fluoride and chlorine in water supplies.
So, you see why your immune system is a big part to keeping healthy!
The PHRASE TO REMEMBER; Health is Wealth.
