Lifestyle Warriors

How are My Lifestyle Warriors Doing?
Have you had some Fresh Air today?
Sometimes just opening a Window can change your whole mood,
maybe not if you live by a garbage dump,
but if you can it is a good idea.
My house is 99 years old
and I find the air can be stale in here,
so on a daily basis my windows are opened,
it makes me feel alive,
gets the good mood flowing,
beckons me outdoors,
usually for a walk first thing in the morning,
the sun was shining today.
There are so many places to go walking here in the city,
parks and bike trails, side streets, down by the river,,
there is always somewhere that you can find that you feel
is your special place.
Maybe you can only make it to the bench in the park at the end of the block.
How lucky we are that we can get out and live.
I really mean this.
I can't move fast, but I can go faster than yesterday,
That is progress,
I can drink more water than yesterday,
I have my meals prepared ahead of time today,
so I am not tempted to grab anything I should not.
Did you prepare for your life today.
Start by looking in the mirror, tell yourself
you are worth it, you deserve, and you are going to achieve it.
One moment at a time, celebrate each win,
celebrate a feeling of lighter on your feet,
a better attitude, excitement for the day,
laughter, great healthy food, water,
exercising, clothes fitting better, rewarding yourself with non food.
Smiling, just do, don't quit, keep going, 
Whatever it takes.
Now is never too late to start, or now is never too late to start again.
Right now, is all that matters, This very minute.
I can do this, so can you.
Have a great weekend,
thank you to all of you whom encourage me every day.
Remember you are never alone.
