Wow! A New Post

How don’t know how long it has been since my last post but I do know I need to get back to writing.   I have been reading some new books. I’ve been fighting the good fight of losing weight and gaining a little control over what goes into my body. Or should I say I am taking back some of the control I though was not under my control. Either way I hope that I am on a roll. I completed the Veteran’s Administration MOVE Intensive program which is a 12 day program of classes, weigh-ins, exercise and eating an 800 calorie diet all under the guidance of the best medical personnel in the VA. Since June 22, 2017 I have lost over 30 pounds and I continue to walk around 10,000 steps a day. Many days I do this with Gus, our new rescue dog. I’d like to thank the people at the Aleda E. Lutz VA Medical Center in Saginaw, Michigan for their tenacity and love in providing this program. So that is one very positive aspect that is happening in my life these days.

As I sit down to write this post, I know there are many negative things happening in our world, most of which I have little control over, but I also know the blessings which are even closer to home. I have an awesome wife of 46 years, who has been with me and did a fantastic job guiding our children into adulthood. She continues to play her violin, viola and sing to praise the Lord and uplift those she touches everyday. I am very remiss in communicating to her the very special blessing she is in my life. In fact, right now, she is sharing a “tea time” with her granddaughter and friends (It was her idea and she provided the necessary utensils for this to happen for our 5 year-old Pepper Sue).  So my life is full of blessings and it is my desire to share the practices which will help to raise your level of “positivity resonance” as Barbara Fredrickson says, in Love 2.0.  (This is a very good book to hep you get started in finding ways to bring positivity into your life and family.

Until next time, Seek your Positivity,

Blessings, Peace, Joy, Hope and Laughter,
