The following are three passages from my newest book/Ebook:
Laughing AT the Grim Reaper! Gems of Wisdom for Aging Well (click to visit Amazon product page)
Of all the books that I’ve written to date, this one truly is: “closest to my ♥ ” and in so many ways.
It’s been so gratifying to already have many people tell me how much they are enjoying this book and how it is touching them and also “ringing true” for them. If we can do that with any written work, I call it a success. 😉
Thanks to everyone who has already written reviews over at Amazon.com and those of you who are planning to write one soon. All appreciated! 🙂
♥ Give up the BAD vices!
You know the ones. I’m not talking about a couple of squares of good chocolate or a glass of organic red wine.
But DO ditch: Smoking. Excessive: drinking, gambling, or spending. Eating junk food on a regular basis, watching mindless hours of TV….
Some people think that they can “get away” with continuing to smoke (for example) because they know of a much-older person who has smoked every day, without apparent harm. But what might not have been taken into account is that person’s: strong genetics, how they were raised on better quality: food, air, water and with a lot of hard work/exercise all part of the mix. All those things DO have an impact on what a person can “get away with” and come through, relatively unscathed.
Why take that risk?
Not to mention, why keep wasting money on things like cigarettes when there are so many other things of value you could be spending that money on?
Don’t wait for the New Year to ditch your own bad habits/vices either, do it now! You’ll feel so good about yourself and you just might add a whole lot of good years of life to your future too.
♥ Start a Rant Journal.
Record all the thoughts you don’t want to share with anyone else but are on your mind. Write it all down, the frustration, the anger…rant, curse, cry, get it all down on paper. Don’t leave anything out that’s bothering you, today. And when you’re finished for the day, close your Rant Journal and put those thoughts and emotions behind you. Get it “off your chest” and then really LET IT GO!
♥ Have a Fire-Cleansing ceremony.
Write down all the hurts, slights, pain, heartaches…with the people in your life (past and present) that you haven’t been able to let go of. Write each of them on a small piece of paper.
Then, one by one, drop them slowly and mindfully into a fireplace, bonfire, or other type of fireproof (safe) container and watch each paper crumple and burn away. As each one burns, consciously release the hurt and pain you’ve held on to, up to this point. Dispel the negativity into the universe, let it go and feel your spirit lighten.
This is a simple but powerful ritual that has really helped me, several times. Repeat whenever you need to purge a lot of negativity from your life, in a tangible and powerful way.
