Quote About Gratitude: Love it!
quote of the day
“Nothing Great was Ever Achieved Without Enthusiasm.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
A while back I had a feature on the self help blog called “Quotes of the Day.” I’d post a great inspirational or motivational quote, along with a graphic (almost always starring an animal or two… what can I say… I’m a modern day Snow White, completely obsessed with animals).
Life gets pretty busy sometimes, causing us to often pull away from certain routines. Unfortunately, I dropped this one and simply never picked it back up.
I was sitting and spending time with my beloved journal/planner this morning and was in the process of writing down my daily morning entries…
- Bible verse of the day
- Vocabulary word of the day (sign up at Dictionary.com!)
- Quote of the day (one I pull from daily reading that inspires or motivates me)
It occurred to me just how much I enjoy having a particularly inspiring or motivating quote to carry around with me throughout the day and I thought of you.
I want to make sure you have one each day for your pocket, to pull out whenever you need a little company. I will post them as often as possible on Mondays – Fridays, beginning today with a wonderful quote above from Ralph Waldo Emerson. My life is beautifully busy, so I doubt there will EVER be a whole week with “Quotes of the Day,” but I’ll try to get as many done as possible.
Have a wonderful, enthusiastic rest of the week! ~ Joi (“Joy“)
Thomas Edison Quote About Nutrition
While “You are what you eat” is one of the best known quotes about healthy eating, I personally love this one from Thomas Edison a lot more.
“The doctor of the future will no longer treat the human frame with drugs, but rather will cure and prevent disease with nutrition.” ~ Thomas Edison
I would love to see more doctors discussing food with their patients – not necessarily more than medications that could be helpful but at leas as much as. Whether it’s to prevent problems, help problems, or even alleviate them… the truth is the foods we eat can be incredibly helpful.
Problem is, not all doctors dive into nutrition (to be fair, lately, when would they find time do do any extra research?!) as a preventive measure let alone a cure. It’s often up to us to do our due diligence and research (from highly reputable sources, of course)…. then bring them up to our doctor and see what he/she says.
I asked one of my doctors, years ago, about an herb I’d read about being helpful for asthma. She actually wrote the name of the herb down and said she was going to look it up and research it. She apparently believed strongly in herbs and natural healing and simply hadn’t read enough about this particular one yet. She said she’d let me know what she’d found on my next visit and she did.
If you don’t have a doctor as cool as this particular doctor… find one!
Make each moment count double! ~ Joi (“Joy”)
Four things I am BEYOND obsessed with are cats, flowers, laughter and spring…. so the graphic and quote above? It’s so “me,” I may as well be the cat!
Spring is a perfect time for cleaning out the cobwebs, and I don’t mean just the ones in the corner on the carport. Although they have got to go.
If spring were a holiday, she’d be New Years Day, for sure. It’s a time of cleansing, reevaluating, and, for lack of a better term, coming back to life. Everything comes back to life in the springtime – trees, yards, flower beds… even songbirds suddenly remember they have a song to sing.
The same can be true of us as well. Things we’d like to change? What better time to attack them?!
If we’d love more happiness in our lives… what better time to invite it right in?!
Take this spring and make it what you want it to be. It’s yours after all.
