My awareness of health dates back to 8th grade

Disney’s Grand Floridian Christmas Tree 2019.

My awareness of health dates back to 8th grade.

That’s when i decided i wanted to become a Gym Teacher, or as it’s politically correct to say, a Health and Physical Education (PE) Teacher.

In 1977, i entered West Chester State College to earn a BS in Health and PE.





Teaching in public schools.

The next generation of adults.

How to live a healthy life.

So yeah, 8th grade was in 1971-1972.

Is that really 47 years ago?

Looks like my efforts to change the world failed.

The good news, i have been able to consistently change myself to become healthy and well.

Perhaps, if i’m lucky, i can help change two others to not conform to society’s poor health and habits and rituals.

Lane 8 Patience Is Genius

“Genius is nothing but a greater aptitude for patience”.Gerorges Louis Leclerc de Buffon

Isn’t it amazing how impatient we can be? It certainly is to me.  Whenever I start to think patience has been mastered, another unexpected test comes along.  One that tests my patience in new ways.

And these tests come out of nowhere.  And many times, from extremely innocent surroundings,  when we least expect it.

“You can not teach patience with impatience”. jeff noel

You will never succeed at overcoming your wellness challenges if you are impatient.  This is one of the fundamental laws of self improvement.  One of the hardest lessons I’ve ever had to learn.
