Health in the present moment

Thought on time

Buddism worships no God.

Buddism focuses on being happy in the present moment.

What if we, in our daily grind, could do that – be happy in our current moment?

What about health in the present moment?

Is it possible?

Health Is Wealth



Surrender and the serenity prayer is the same thing.

Letting go of things i can’t control is the key to peace.

Making wellness a priority is completely in my control.




On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

A day of remembrance.

Inspire and be inspired


Does freedom stem from peace and contentment?

Will we ever be free without good, decent health?

This is assuming we have no adverse medical condition(s).

Seems peace and contentment is contingent on our ability to triumph over slothfulness.

To feel like a victor in charge, not a victim at the mercy of daily living.

We either exercised yesterday or we didn’t.

Second unintentional no-run morning. Why? Lost voice yesterday and focused on rest over exercise.


Falling behind with the 2014 comeback.

This is what balance helps with…

Not worrying too much about these constant curve balls.
