As the ancient Chinese poet and philosopher Lao Tzu stated, “Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.”

Remember the Guinness Commercial?

Remember the Guinness Commercial? Tagged with:

Back on September 13, 2013, is when I first saw the Guinness commercial that featured a person with a disability playing wheelchair basketball with some of his friends without a disability. Almost immediately I knew this commercial was going to be talked about for a long time, as well as make me want to have a drink.

AVOIDING DIABETES . . . and Adding 6 Years to Your Life!

AVOIDING DIABETES  . . . and Adding 6 Years to Your Life! Tagged with:

In honor of National Diabetes Month, I would like to share a VERY personal story. My mother was an insulin diabetic for most of her life starting back in the 1950’s until her passing away over two decades ago. Since she was taking insulin several times daily, I’m sure that diabetes was on her mind every waking hour. Point being, I realized if there was any “good news” about my mother’s diabetes, it was that I learned that diabetes should be feared and avoided at all costs.

A Time to say Thanks

A Time to say Thanks Tagged with:

 

Sometimes a week does not good bye in which I am told “thank you for your service.” At first I know the obvious reason that those statements are made to me. I have a physical disability. But the other reason is that I have a key chain lanyard I wear around my neck that promotes the US Navy.

5 Tips for Spinal Cord Injuries

5 Tips for Spinal Cord Injuries Tagged with:

Holiday Season evokes mixed feelings in most of us. Some of us, primarily those who believe in fairy tales and Christmas stories, love the snow, the woolen clothing, the boots, the hot chocolate, and the warm fireplace to snuggle by in the night. The more pragmatic among us hate the thought of the snow giving way to slush and storms creating transport issues. Then there are those who don’t like the idea of it being too dark and cold most of the time and their physical activity taking a hit as a result.

Actively Taking Control Of Your Stress Through Exercise

Actively Taking Control Of Your Stress Through Exercise Tagged with:

Stress isn’t good for anyone, but according to the American Psychological Association, at least 75% of Americans feel stressed out every day. Constant stress affects our daily lives, and can have a negative impact on our health. It can give you headaches, can make your heart beat faster, can lead to high blood pressure, and can make you less resistant to illness. Extended periods of stress can even lead to heart attack and diabetes over time, and can affect how well you think and feel, too. So before it starts to affect your quality of life, it’s important to take control of it.
