John Gray's Morning Drink

I heard John Gray speak last year. He is the guy that wrote the Mars and Venus books. He is not only right on when he talks about relationships. He is just as knowledgeable about health. He drinks this every morning. He really sold me on the benefits of this drink.
Drink it right when you wake up in the morning. The honey feeds your brain, the lemon cleanses your liver and the cell food oxygenates your brain. Wait 20 minutes to eat and you won't be as hungry. This isn't a weight loss strategy it is just a side effect.

To mix activated water, use the following quantities:
8 oz (237 ml) water
1 oz (30 ml) aloe Vera juice
1 tsp (5 ml) honey
juice of ½ lemon
Trace Minerals (ionic plant sourced), in the amount recommended by the manufacturer
Shake the mixture five to ten times in a bottle or jar before drinking. Shaking activates the potency of ionic trace minerals.
Make sure the minerals you use are ionic trace minerals from a plant source. One is a product named "Cell Food," but there are numerous others. The key is to be sure it is plant sourced. Each ionic trace mineral product has its own suggested amount for daily use. Some say eight drops of a liquid while others indicate two tablespoons, etc. Simply follow the manufacturer's suggested daily portion size and include that in your morning activated water and breakfast shake.

Start with only a couple of drops of cellfood a day for awhile or you may get a headache.

I made this for a friend of mine. He was very over weight and by his own admission said that he ate the worst food imaginable. He ended up getting a really bad headache from the cell food.
It is called a health crisis? It has detoxing effects. It dumps toxins that are stored in your organs back into your blood stream to get rid of them. It is healthy for you to do cleanses but if you are unhealthy either don’t use the drops or start out very slowly and only add one drop and then 2, until you build up to 8 drops.

I just joined Toastmasters. It is a speaking club. My mother was in Toastmasters before I was born. I always knew it was something I would like to try. I had it on my list of life goals for years and years. I finally thought to myself, "What am I waiting for? What is stopping me from going for it?" I decided to do it. I looked on the internet and found the Toastmaster meeting closest to my home. I had no idea what to expect. After going to 2 other buildings I finally found the meeting. I got there late but they acted very excited to see me. They were all very warm and friendly. I was as comfortable as a person could be showing up at a strange place, with new people and standing and giving an impromptu 2 min. speech on holiday goodies. But you know what? I came home so pumped!!!

Happy Thoughts

In the book "The Artist's Way",the author suggests making a list about our very happiest memories. Start a journal called "My Best Memories Ever!". What a happy book to look through. You can keep it right next to your gratitude journal.:)

Whatever you spend your time thinking about grows!

Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work. --Thomas Edison

I asked Kyle why he was so happy and he said it is funner to be happy. I thought is was pretty profound. It is funner to be happy. It is a choice. Abraham Lincoln said "Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be".

If I can’t find joy here and now, will I find it anywhere?

Eventually your countenance will match your thoughts and actions.

Self Mastery

"I am the captain of my soul.I am the master of my fate."-- William Hanley

David O. McKay urged us to remember that “the greatest battle of life is fought out within the silent chambers of your own soul”

The Greek philosopher Epectitus also declared that “No man is free who is not master of himself.” This again is plain because he who does not control his impulses, emotions and desires permits himself to be their slave by following them at every turn. A slave, as we know, is one without freedom but does the bidding of his master to satisfy the latter’s every whim which usually leads to destruction and death.

Spencer W. Kimball quoted an unknown author as follows: “The height of a man’s success is gauged by his self-mastery; the depth of his failure by his self-abandonment. … He who cannot establish a dominion over himself will have no dominion over others. He who masters himself shall be king”

Plato said: “The first and best victory is to conquer self; to be conquered by self is, of all things, the most shameful and vile.”

Leonardo da Vinci once said: “You will never have a greater or lesser dominion than that over yourself.” Then he goes on to say that “the height of a man’s success is gauged by his self-mastery; the depth of his failure by his self-abandonment

Dream Big

This is me in 5th grade. I was dreaming big dreams even then. Look at what a grand snowman my brother and I made with no snow on the ground. That was dreaming big!

"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered with failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows not victory nor defeat."-- Theodore Roosevelt

What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail? Dr. Robert Schuller
