Infuse Your Life with Action

Infuse your life with action. Don't wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen... yourself, right now, right down here on Earth. -Bradley WhitfordInfuse your life with action – what greater motivator is there than that?

In October, I wrote that in November I planned to write about motivation, health, fitness, fun and things that tickle my fancy.

When I saw this amazing quote to Infuse My Life With Action I knew I was on the right path.

Now to come up with some topics for November. I want to:

  • stay healthy
  • meet 5 new people
  • read 4 books
  • paint my bathroom
  • do something different for Thanksgiving
  • hike a new trail
  • join a group
  • walk more and eat less (except on Thanksgiving when I just want to devour all my comfort foods)
  • connect more on Skype and Oovoo with my family like we did last year.
  • greet the sun and admire a new day.

So, you know what I want to do – what’s on your list? Are you willing to jot down a few things you want to accomplish?  If you want to share I’d love to know what you have planned.

Infuse your life with action. Don’t wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen… yourself, right now, right down here on Earth. –Bradley Whitford

Here’s to your health Joe!

Last week I was not feeling so great.

My voice had disappeared. Instead I had a deep chest cough.

I’m better now, my voice is back (a bit squeaky), my cough is gone (almost) and I feel wonderful. Being sick isn’t fun, but at least I was able to be in my bed, with my pillow, my sounds and smells.

For those folks in a hospital – to one person in particular – it’s hard. Your schedule is lined up with the schedule of the hospital. You are at the mercy of the people that come anThe difference between who you are and what you want to be is what you do.d go and you can only pray they have no cough (ahem…) or colds (oops!) or nasty germs.

The best place to heal is at home with chicken broth, juices, flowers and your pillow.If you’ve been in a hospital, you know how absolutely wonderful it is to return home. A few minutes of tears are allowed as you enter your castle.

Putting yourself first by not talking calls, visitors or entertaining is the only way to heal. Having a spouse or parent or child to be that guard dog is a good thing. Rest, sleep, heal. Once that’s over it’s time to sit, bark, play.

But first, you must get home. Soon? I sure hope so.

Sending love from my broken desk to your hospital bed…
