Press forward. Do not stop, do not linger in your journey, but strive for the mark set before you.

Hello followers,

Happy weekend!

Even though it is not officially SPRING until the 20th, the weather here in Virginia is feeling more like spring.

The trees are blooming, and the birds are chirping.

This is a day for optimism only.

No matter what comes your way, your task is to see only the favorable attributes in it.

Your goal is to practice the power of positive thinking.

Moving forward!

Take an inventory.

See if you are obsessing about the past or mired in your current problems.

Pivot to thoughts about what you are looking forward to.

Give attention to future-oriented positive ideas.

If you are still struggling, cognitive behavioral therapy can help you think about the future and improve prospection.

This form of therapy changes your automatic negative response and helps you replace negative thinking with more objective, clear-eyed thinking.

This can help you move forward into your future in a healthy manner.

Or you might opt directly for Future Directed Therapy.

In this form of therapy, you don not dwell on the past or your present-day problems.

Rather, you spend time imagining what you desire in the future and learn how to meet those future goals.

Let us move ahead.

As Dan and I have been sharing and continuing the book from last week, Ten-Minute Relaxation, For Mind and Body by Jennie Harding, until the end.

Whenever you are feeling under pressure, ten minutes is all you need to relax totally, using tools that are always with you; 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.




Find a quiet corner of your yard, or a park.

Sit down comfortably on the ground and stretch out your senses into what is around you.

Feel what is under your hands.

Let your eyes really observe the hundreds of creatures living here, insects, birds, and more.

Also enjoy all the colors and textures in the space.

Listen to the sounds.

How many of them are there?

Inhale deeply.

Let the smell and taste of the air fill your awareness.

Now relax, deeply.

Simply be part of the space.


As Dan and I start a new year; we will be posting daily 365 morning meditations for joyful days all year long.

The book is SUNRISE GRATITUDE by Emily Silva.

March 4th

WHEN YOU WAKE UP, it is like opening a new book.

Make your life your favorite story, because it is a lovely story that happens to be true.

You are the main character, and you get to decide how you would like your story to transpire.

You create your reality.

Do something today that sets the stage for your story to unfold.

As the author of your life, you can change scenes and make anything happen.

Do not play small.

PHRASE TO REMEMBER; Health is Wealth.

We stand by this and continue to do daily; walk, meditation, and Qigong.

If you would like to follow with us; hash tag words #walk, #meditation #Qigong on the right of the main blog page.

Until Sunday, since starting with that single first step, I can clearly see that moving forward requires a community, each of us supporting one another.
