"Too often, people focus only on results. But getting results without learning something or without having fun is incomplete. So is having fun without getting the results, or having fun without learning something new to help and empower you in the future. Accomplishment is all three: the Result, Personal Growth and having Fun!"

The other day, I went for a walk with my daughter.  It was wonderful.
go for a walk.you don't have to "start walking" (and start 'shoulding' on yourself)
Just go for a walk.  just one.if you like it, you might decide to go again.

A carrot, an egg and a cup of coffee... A young woman went to her mother and told her about her life and how things were so hard for her. She did not know how she was going to make it and wanted to give up. She was tired of fighting and struggling. It seemed as one problem was solved, a new one arose.Her mother took her to the kitchen. She filled three pots with water and placed each on a high fire. Soon the pots came to boil. In the first she placed carrots, in the second she placed eggs, and in the last she placed ground coffee beans.
