When Life gives you lemons…

May 1st, 2007 at 00:01 am » Comments (0)

When the coach wants you to start drinking hot lemonade but cannot explain why it is important…
what can you do but turn to the Internet for more information on the medicinal properties of Lemons

Next thing you know, your visiting Menton Italy,reading about their annual festival,

and getting all sorts of inspiration of what ELSE you could do with Lemons (although I do love Citrus fruit and Lemons in particular)

So in honor of the upcoming (always the first full weekend in May) Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival

When Life Gives You Lemons, Make a Spinning Wheel….

Reaching Goals – Inspiring Mental Endorphins

January 1st, 2007 at 00:00 am » Comments (0)

It’s that day of the year –
The one where you are supposed to start all sorts of high minded resolutions.

If you are like me, you have long since given up resolutions and switched to goals – after all why waste time and energy devoting yourself to something that is pretty much doomed to fail

Instead, I prefer the concept of setting goals large and small in that they are “doable” whereas resolution are sometimes such huge undertakings that we doom ourselves to failure.

If you start your every day with some small goal, doable TODAY, and a commitment to work on at least one other – then somehow it all gets easier. According to the last part of the Columbia Encyclopedia definition of endorphins,

>>> Prolonged, continuous exercise contributes to an increased production and release of endorphins, resulting in a sense of euphoria that has been popularly labeled “runner’s high.” <<< Reaching at least some small goal each day produces, for me, a sort of mental endrophins, that makes it so much easier to get on with the next one. By now, you have realized that I use music for motivation, here is one of my favorites, Somehow every thing seems doable, if you can just ride your personal "Chariot of Fire"


There is one freedom
Man running along
Each step that he’s taking
A step to his soul

The passion and courage
It takes to be there
A man and his spirit
Alive in the air

And if he should stumble
as he goes
If he should fall
It won’t really matter
If he knows
he gave it his all

The way becomes clearer
The way is complete
The need to be running
Admit no defeat

The circles together
Hold hands to the sky
A man and his spirit
he’s learning to fly

And if he should stumble
as he goes
If he should fall
It won’t really matter
If he knows
he gave it his all

Let no one surround himself with pain
But use it to free him
The game is to learn to live again
A race to the end


And if he should stumble
as he goes
If he should fall
It won’t really matter
If he knows
he gave it his all

Let no one surround himself with pain
But use it to free him
The game is to learn to live again
A race to the end
