How can I not reblog this when you have the lyric video of one of my all time favorite songs! 🙂

2 R Better Than 1

Get up, get up, get up!  No more snoozing…let’s get this day started. We have work to do. Someone prayed to God to send some resources — a little human capital, and that means you. So, fuel up. Guzzle down a bottle of water, grab some fruit, and hit the start button on your coffee pot (if you need a little liquid courage).

Today I know that God is going to use me. I might not want to go where he sends me, but I made a vow to be obedient. I challenge all of you to do the same. Open your mind and heart to embrace any opportunity to help a brother or sister in need today. You’re not too poor, too weak, too wealthy, or too busy to do God’s will. If you said the Lord’s Prayer this morning, you already uttered “Thy will be done.” Those aren’t…

What Are You Allowing to Distract You From What is Important In Your Life?

Dream Big, Dream Often

squirrel.jpgToday I went online to do some research and before I knew it Facebook had sucked me into its vortex and I had wasted 30 minutes scanning and reading a bunch of junk. It did bring up an important thought that I want to talk about. What are you allowing to distract you from what is important in your life?

Too many times I watch friends as they are hyper-focused on some small problem or some minor decision while they allow huge issues and problems to continue on in their life. They allow themselves to be distracted with some ancillary factor and spend their life ignoring problems that, if addressed, could change their lives for the better. Have you done this? Are you doing this right now?

Why not put a stop to this insanity and address what really matters? Why not bring these unaddressed issues to the forefront and…

Quick and Easy Way to Retire Comfortably


Don’t borrow money to live on while you go to school. If you must borrow, borrow only enough for tuition and books. You don’t need cable TV, Fancy cell phone plans, money for eating out or partying. If possible get a dependable roommate. If you work steadily, you won’t need entertainment. Peanut butter, whole wheat bread, and beans are nutritious, high protein foods, and you can keep them in a metal lockbox in your room if your roommate is a moocher.

Buy your clothes at resale shops and Goodwill if you don’t have cash. You don’t need as many as you think, especially if you don’t eat out and party. Take a job, any job, until you get one that pays better. Never quit one job till you have another.  If your boss is an idiot, keep your mouth shut.  If he really is stupid, he will undo himself without…

Your 10 Step Diet Plan for Disease Free Monsoon

With the onset of Monsoon, we need to remember that it brings low-immunity and weak digestion also along with these beautiful rains. We need to be careful about what we eat or drink. The basics of keeping oneself healthy are avoiding raw vegetables, wash all fruits and vegetable and avoid street food like a plague.

But, there are foods we should consume to let this monsoon season be disease free. Here are few tips you can follow:

  1. You like tea, try infusing it with ginger or mint. It will not only add flavours to your tea but will be a good source of antioxidants.

  3. The Indian spices like turmeric, coriander, jeera, ginger etc. increase your body immunity and helps enhance the digestive power.
  4. Switch to stirring fried…

Men and Women Speak Different Languages

I have reached 50 posts! 🙂
I thought I would look back at my most popular posts, and this is by far my most popular.

Sex vs Love

I started writing this blog because many of the people I know and care about are having a tough time with their marriages, and / or are going thru a divorce. It is for those couples that I am sharing my experiences and observations in the hopes that they can learn from my triumphs and mistakes.

I am not sure how this started, but I started to see things from both the men’s and women’s perspective.

Case 1.  A man and his wife split up and I ask him why. He says their son was doing drugs in the house and he told the son to get rid of the drugs. The son came after him with a baseball bat. He tells the wife to call the cops. She does and tells the cops to take her husband away.

What did you hear? As I say, I don’t know for…

Is Your Diet Affecting Your Mental Health?

I have believed this since I was a teenager. More recently my wife would get upset when I would blame her emotional bursts on a bad diet. Is it my fault that I see her as a perfect angel, and I see her diet as the problem? 😉

Can your diet play a role towards mental health? Yes, it can. A good diet that provides adequate amounts of complex carbohydrates, essential fats, amino acids, vitamins and minerals and water is essential for enhanced mood and an overall feeling of wellbeing.

Often, the role of nutrition is under-recognized as a leading factor contributing towards mental health. If you read the WHO official mental health definition, you’ll understand that mental health is nothing but a state of well-being in which every individual realises his/her potential and can cope with the normal stresses of life.

The Mental Health Act of 1987 is described as An Act to consolidate and amend the law relating to the treatment and care of mentally ill persons, to make better provision with respect to their properly and affairs and for matters connected therewith or incidental thereto.
