After having two grandchildren (ages 5 and 3) spend the night, Papa and Nana are done tuckered out. I am hagridden every time the kids ask us to watch the grandchildren over night, but I would not change that for the world. Today’s thought is:
Live for today, save for tomorrow, and invest in the future of your generations to come. ~ ME
Grandchildren are not only the catalyst for us to remember our younger years, but also an ‘in your face’ reminder that we are no longer young ourselves. ~ ME
On the news there is a person running for governor in Iowa. His platform is based on raising the minimum wage. Evidently this person has no idea how a capitalist economy works. Thus, the thought for today:
When applying for jobs, demand what you think you are worth. If you find yourself starving because of lack of work, you have two choices. Either you can continue to starve, or you can reevaluate your worth. The first will lead to your demise and the latter will lead you to survival. ~ ME
This is how economics work; it is all about supply and demand. If you demand more than what the supply calls for, you won’t close the deal. The same is true for wages; if you demand more than what the position calls for, especially when there are others willing to work for the lower wages, you won’t get the job.
Walk every day through life with integrity and honesty. Live each day to the fullest and do not settle for less than what you deserve. ~ ME
How deep into darkness and evil can a mind venture when permitted to do so? Is it an acquired taste, or inability to understand evil that allows people to do so? What element of the conscious mind prevents most people from going there?
Since the dawn of man there has been evil and only through well established morals and mores do we all avoid going down that path. ~ ME
Trying to get this thought out is turning out more difficult than visualized in my mind. Not because it is a difficult subject, but because I have a brace on my left hand that prevents my fingers from gliding across the keyboard without extra letters and spaces. Anyway, the thought for today:
You can achieve inner peace by accepting yourself as you are and not allowing others to dictate changes that are not you. ~ ME
Don’t give up; victory is not always immediate. ~ ME
7 months ago my doctor said I was going to have to start taking insulin as my A1C was 8.4. I asked that he give me 4 months to turn it around. 4 months later, I had it down to 6.2. Today, at my next checkup, my A1C is down to 4.8!
It took a change of diet, a change of exercise, and an unwillingness to give up. If I can keep it there, insulin will never have to be a future for me!
