Sticking to the list

Doing what is best for you, some times might be even harder than you could imagine, even if you know it is for your best interest.

Lately, during bedtime, I was structuring the next day in my mind and said to myself what he will do the next day. From the 20 things I was telling myself that he had to do the next day, I would be lucky if I did 5 of them.

Well, this mocking of my own self had to stop, so I implemented another weapon. A hand written list. I write about 15-20 things every day of what I have to do the next day and stick it on the board in my bedroom. So far this works. For a week now I have been sticking to my list and see myself going to bed each day more satisfied and more fulfilled.

So, if there is one thing you must do, is don’t fool yourself and don’t look for excuses. Make your list and stick to it.

And then the good angel kicks the doors of my mind wide open.

Purified water

Water or H2O as many manuscripts refer to it, is the essence of life. We all know that. Without water there wouldn’t be life in this planet.

Water may come in different forms and shapes. It may come as solid, liquid or as vapour.

It covers 71% of earth’s surfaces and is essential for sustaining life on it. An amazing fact that few may know is that 60% of the human body is made up of water. Continue reading Purified water
