BEING HAPPY KEEPS YOU YOUNG

happy
When you’re feeling happy, it’s because your body has released endorphins that make you feel good.  So go ahead, laugh a little, it will reduce your stress.  Stress is known to be a significant factor in aging.

laughter
Laughter enhances your intake of oxygen-rich air, stimulates your heart, lungs, and muscles.  It also soothes tension and can stimulate circulation and aid muscle relaxation, both of which help reduce some of the physical symptoms of stress.  So remember…the next time you are faced with a situation that could have a tendency to interfere with your laughter, think about how GOD created this natural medicine for us all to benefit from.  We just have to change our way of thinking and make a choice to utilize it.

Let The Storm Pass

I literally woke up with a smile on my face this morning.  God is doing some incredible things and I can’t help but to rejoice.   I am excited about what all is going on in my life, but even more excited at what is going on in the lives of those who are around me.  One thing that I’ve learned is that when your soul prospers, your life prospers.  As we are making changes in our lives, we might face oppositions.  This is our test phase because if we’re strong enough to pass these test, our rewards await.  I’ve had many tests that after passed became testimonials that I was able to share to help others.  We can’t give up and think the worst when the oppositions come.  Think of the oppositions as storms.  When a storm comes, it eventually passes.  We stay inside to stay out of the storm, we don’t go out and get into it.   If we do, all kinds of commotion occurs.  So the next time a storm arises in your life, don’t entertain it.  Keep still and let the storm pass.  The sun will always come right back out again to shine!  Happy Monday

Reap What You Sow Into Your Kids

They are our fruit and we don’t want them to grow up to become rotten.

I’m a mother of two handsome, confident and intelligent little boys who keep me on my toes.  The confidence that the two of them have is incredible and is recognized by many.  The conversations they have with individuals is amazing!  When traveling with them, people comment regularly on how well behaved they are and how well they interact with others.  My husband and I constantly plant positive seeds into our sons and teach them that they can be whatever they want and achieve whatever it is they have their heart desires.  Their confidence level is amazingly high and they know how loved they are and how much we believe in them.  They know they don’t have to grow up and “find” or “settle” for love or acceptance from just anyone.  We enjoy spending quality time with them and taking them places.  They are kids who actually appreciate and who do not always have their hands out for things.    It’s important that we take time with our kids and plant positive seeds into them each and everyday.  They are our fruit and we don’t want them to grow up to become rotten. Stay involved with your children.  Nurture them and be an example.  After all, we do reap what we sow!
