Today, on two separate occasions, I heard the term, “you eat what you kill.”

If you want to start your day right and feel good, don’t turn on the news but, instead, listen to a six year old darling sing a Frank Sinatra classic.

Why stare at your feet when you can raise your head and soar with the eagles.

All businesses have problem statements, and, like injuries, if not attended to, end up being crippled for the rest of their lives.

If you’re in a quiet place and your mind is at peace, don’t think of noisy things!

Harmony



Words are powerful.

When we write, say, and think, it affects our subconscious, tells us how to act and react, without our knowing it.

For example, I’m thinking of the word “ Harmony“. Years ago, as a musician, mostly in high school, I played in a band. My instrument was the baritone, sometimes known as the euphonium , a smaller version of a tuba. It supported deeper tones and melodies. my contribution, as with others, was to play in tune, rhythm and musical cooperation, listening for blends and balances, creating for the moment, harmony.

In the laws of gender, Yin and Yang, fulfillment is based upon a concept, a compliance of work in progress, pieces of a puzzle creating a picture, parts snapping into place, one piece at a time. Words like appreciation, fulfillment, satisfaction and happiness come to mind. A very wise woman once told me, “do your part. Do your best. And God will do the rest.“

The symphony of life that coordinates the brass, wind, string and drums continually rolls out the tune of life with a conductor, endlessly, waving his wand.

Each of us has an instrument to play. To keep this world spinning, we need to stay in tune, play the notes on our sheet, and listen to the universe around us, as it ensures perfect harmony.

My Tai Chi Story

I’ve practiced Tai Chi for over 40 years, learned and experienced the tremendous benefits, how it’s kept me healthy, in mind, body and spirit.

What is Tai Chi?

Tai Chi (translated means “grand ultimate fist”) is an internal martial art created about 300 years ago, when a Buddhist monk observed movements between a snake and crane fighting.  The monk emulated these movements and created a method of martial arts.  Years passed and this exercise was developed into what we know now is Tai Chi and Kung fu.

I’ve never created a blog on my cell phone, but I was compelled.  More like pissed.  It happened when I did not get an order I placed online.  At the time, it was in stock and I paid with my credit card.

I asked for a tracking number, and was then told that I’d have to wait several weeks for the manufacture to restock the distributor’s shelves.  

Wow.  Not good.

Why is it's easy to understand that stuffing eight pounds of cheese cannot fit in a four pound bag, but yet companies continue to over sell or overbook?
