Hows that smile?

How many times have you heard "Give someone your smile, they're free"?

Well they are and often just what some one needs.

Go ahead and smile & I'll give you some back

We all get it Stress. It's not KEEPING it that makes the difference.
When stressful things or events come our way let's not hold onto them. Odds are we can't change the WHAT that caused it but we can let go.

Breath- simple words and an exercise yet often overlooked. Breath deep, use that diaphragm and hold your breath then let it go, exhaling all that stress.

Or simply be like Alfred E. Newman  and say "What, me worry?"

This may sound like it's about me and not keeping with the theme "It's not all about me" yet here it is

I do something each year to help others and I could use help from you guys
Riding my bicycle 170 miles from Miami Florida to Key West in the Smart Ride

It provides money for seven agencies to get care for people with HIV/AIDS

Please donate what you can and I'll write each donors name on a plaque attached to my bike so you'll ride with me

When we (I) give of my time or money I feel a sence of accomplishing something.

I can assure you that the SMART Ride does just that.

Hows this for an example: one of the seven beneficiaries was able to hire someone who works tirelesly getting people good care. That would NOT have happened without donations to the SMART ride

Let's be altruistic together and give

If you missed reading this blog for seven days as much as I missed writing it, well I was on  a cruise in the Caribbean. Met a lot of people but more had a good good  time.

Sure I'll review the experience elsewhere but for now just the word JOY comes to mind.

Zip Lining in Honduras and Swimming with sting rays were two challenges.

Doing them and just being on a huge boat in a massive sea brought total joy.

Coming home, Rubio my pup just jumped for joy when he saw me.

From major things to small things, joy is something we all can use and share

What brings you joy? Have you shared that with others?

Let's make joy our goal together

All You Can

John Wesley said

“Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. At all the times you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can.”


I know I try to do that but I never beat myself up when I forget.

Why be so altruistic?  We learn that by giving goodness goodness comes back to us.

Much like this blog, it's all about YOU and the good you are
