For wellness the best is self care.
The most important aspect of health care is self care. Studies in
England and the United States have found that 50 to 75 percent
of all problems presented to a primary care clinic are emotional,
social, or familial in origin, though they are being expressed by
pain or illness. For good health avoid alcohol. Alcohol is the
third-ranking cause of preventable illness and death in the US.
Alcohol deteriorates bone and cartilage. Alcohol messes with
the kidneys, pancreas, and liver. Alcohol is bad for the brain
and even in moderate drinkers can lead to lasting or even
permanent brain damage. Even moderate drinking reduces
the production of new brain cells by 40%. Diabetes is a
common side effect of pancreatitis which is mainly caused
by alcohol. Alcohol can affect the kidneys so that they are
less able to filter your blood. People who drink alcohol are
more likely to have high blood pressure.
Everyone has potential. It is an infinite resource that cannot be
exhausted, but can be lost in the clouds of fear and complacency.
It may take courage to embrace the possibilities of your own
potential, but once you've flown past the summit of your fears,
nothing will seem impossible. - M.H. McKee
You are a vase that contains God's love and you are a vehicle for
Him to use to bless the world with.
When you get to the end of all the light you know and it's time to
step into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing that one
of two things shall happen: either you will be given something
solid to stand on, or you will be taught how to fly. - Edward Teller
Faith and Fear both demand you believe in something you cannot see.
To those who need encouragement, remember this: Beware of
quitting too soon. Dr. Seuss' first children's book was rejected by
23 publishers. The 24th publisher sold 6 million copies. - Ann Landers
Inspiration for success.
Jesus is our example. Jesus overcame and so can we following his
example. One thing that gets in our way is the word "if". Rather
than focusing on "if", focus on "when". When Jesus was in the
wilderness he was asked by the devil numerous things. The devil
will always try to get us to focus on the "ifs". Just as Jesus did,
forget about the "ifs" and know that if you keep on the right track
that the "when" is on its way. You are a child of the most High
God. When we are weak God is strong and that is who we need
to rely on. You may not be certain about your future but God is.
God is for you, He's not against you.

My wife and I were dining out at a nice restaurant. I overheard the
couple at the next table discussing their bill. "Well Mary," said the
man, "Near as I can figure, based on the price of the ham dinner
you just ate, we got a hog back on the farm that's worth at least
When my three-year-old son opened the birthday gift from his
grandmother, he discovered a water pistol. He squealed with
delight and headed for the nearest sink. I was not so pleased.
I turned to my mom and said, "I'm surprised at you. Don't you
remember how we used to drive you crazy with water guns?"
Mom smiled and then replied....."I remember."
Choose to get started on a better path for wellness and
wealth from home. Choose to thrive and succeed with us and
to be part of the solution. Break out, you were made for more.
Peace, Health and Prosperity,
