Берегите близких и родных. Время очень быстро утекает.
Вы цените с ними каждый миг,
Что порою мы не замечаем.
Вы цените с ними каждый час,
Каждый вдох, и каждое мгновенье.
Не дано предугадать сейчас,
Время их ухода и забвенья.
Нужно их беречь, пока они
Живы и нуждаются в заботе.
Вы побеспокойтесь о живых,
Но не завтра, а уже сегодня!
Берегите близких и родных!#жизньоднадругойнебудет#санктпетербург#ilovelife 💞
My expectations of myself was the heaviest thing I ever carried. 🏋🏻♀️ The weight of #expectations can be crushing. .
It takes a lot practice to just let go, and let things be as they are. To accept life the way it simply is. Breathe in, breathe out - breathe in acceptance, breathe out expectations. .
One of my favorite rules: Put in the intention and let go of the expectation of the results. #yougotthis
10 months and about 20 days ago (10/29/2017) my life was rocked and turned completely upside down. I woke up in the hospital unable to move with a neck brace around my neck. As most know I suffered a terrible accident causing 4 fractured vertabraes, c5-t1, coupled with a brachial plexus injury, which left my right arm paralysed. I had to have three levels fused together, one above and below my old c6/7 fusion, along with 5 rods on each side of my vertabraes from c4-t1 to help stabilize the neck.
While this injury was extremely physically painful, it was by far the most challenging and mentally painful thing I've had to endure in my lifetime. I know somebody always has it harder and I never forget that when I start to feel a little self pity; however, this was my own personal battle. As a man who dedicated his life to the sport of surfing and teaching it's wonders to all walks of life; I was left with a lot of doubt and uncertainty. During the first 6-8 months I battled depression, addiction, anger, resentment, confusion, fear, anxiety, and the shere physical inability to do a lot of what I loved to do in life. Ya I worried about never surfing again or flirting with disaster on a big double overhead drainer, cheating death just a little bit 😎. More importantly though I was upset, angry, confused, and about a thousand other emotions about never teaching again. I loved the joy this sport brought to kids, adults, mentally disabled, physically disabled, and to just about every walk of life. I woke up every morning considering this was my purpose in life and I couldn't imagine life without it. Well it's been 5 months since my third and hopefully last surgery and I've been drastically improving! It's been a lot of dedication and one arm laps at the Y, but there is no way I could of gone this far without the countless support. I guess I'm posting this to say thank you for the countless calls, texts, letters, emails, and even hand written cards from students. That I love each and every one of you that has even smiled or put their hand on my shoulder in a time of need. Yeeeewwwww 🤙. #ekzo
This picture was just sent to me today. This amazing photo is taken in front of my Aunt Maude and Uncle Russell’s house in rural Cowgill, MO. I think I am in the 5th grade. I am the 4th guy on top row after Dean and Dan Swafford and standing between Steve Cox and Sam Switzer. I think this was our Methodist Sunday School Class. Kind of crazy, but I have been able to identify all eleven of us. Good times... #friends#ilovelife#cowgill#familymatters#growingup
Some of my recent workout fun... just to prove what a 48 year old can do when they put their mind to it!
And before you ask... no I did not just start exercising like this today...it has taken time and persistence to get to this level ... but I’m telling you... it’s worth it!
Did you know they after around 40... your muscle and bone density decreases??? Plus your hormones get a bit out of whack... and your A1c and cholesterol can do the same too?
But guess what can help slow these issues down and keep us young?
Yup you’ve got it... looking after your body!
And I’m telling you... that personally I don’t mind like looking younger than I am from the rear and great for my age from all other angles... if you get what I mean...🤔🤔 And you know what... it’s totally possible... because if I can do it... so can you!
I was done with the extra baggage around my middle... that I knew as I got older... would make me much more likely to have a stroke... as has become so common in women these days... So I’ve stepped up to the mark... to look after my body and be stronger abs healthier to boot!
Want to look after the one body you have?
And BTW it’s not actually that hard.... So give me a “Hello” below to get your rear view in the best shape it’s been for years.... go on... you know you won’t regret it... I certainly don’t 😂🤣 #fitover40#girlsthstlift#iwanttoliveahealthylife#postmenopausal#ilovelife#fitnessisfun
Reminding myself to treat myself to the simple pleasures in life....I haven’t bought a cappuccino out at a cafe in months...I honestly can’t even recal the last time...I usually have my one cup I brew up in the am and that’s it for the day. The last 3 days there was this desire to go to a cafe and buy myself a cappuccino, today after my CPR certification training, I road my bike to go workout at the stairs, and afterwords I had planned to read and study for my CPT course I am currently in, my thoughts went back and forth of ... should I go home and study as I normally do...or do I treat myself to this cappuccino I’ve been wanting, and go sit on the grass by the ocean and study there...I honestly had to ask my angels and ask for there support and guidance in this....the answer came clear to me as I allowed to listen to my internal knowing...the calling was to switch my routine up, go get myself that cappuccino and study outdoors...so this is what I did. At Ground Works coffee here in Venice they make there own homemade cashew milk with dates and agave ... it is ABSOLUTELY so delicious used as the “base” of the cappuccino. Each sip was like a taste of heaven. Sitting by the ocean, on freshly cut grass was such a highlight of my day, and I honestly read my chapter with focus which was great to witness for I am easily distracted when I read...I am just expressing this to you all, for stepping out of the “norm” is sometimes just what we need. Happy Wednesday my sweet friends. I highly recommend trying this cashew milk cappuccino, I swear it’s literally heavenly. #vegan#vegancappuccino#heaven#tasteofheaven#organic#study#outdoors#listen#allow#happy#blissful#ask#receive#guides#thankful#simple it’s the simple things in life that touch my soul. #ilovelife#grace#content#centered#joy#solo#roaming#veganfitness#connectiontosource
