“a father's day letter ”
Thanks for being supportive without being overly controlling. Thanks for letting make my own mistakes so I could learn and grow. Thanks for not letting take the easy way out. Thanks for teaching me the value of a man’s word. Thanks for being a pillar of strength that I could rely on anytime. Thanks for giving me great advice even though I didn’t always take it. Thanks for believing in me if when I had stopped. Thanks for being a great example.
And… now that all these years have passed and I have taken on the role of a father I only hope that someday my child can think and feel the way about me as I feel about you.
”If the new American father feels bewildered and even defeated, let him take comfort from the fact that whatever he does in any fathering situation has a fifty percent chance of being right.”
Have an excellent week.

You are The Master of Your Attitude
Your attitude is not determined by circumstances,
but by how you respond to your circumstances.
You can respond positively or negatively to any situation.
It's how you react to events, not the events themselves,
that determines your attitude.
Any challenge facing you
is not as important as your attitude towards it,
for that will determine your success or failure.
Things turn out best for the people
who make the best of the way things turn out.
It's not your position but your disposition that counts.

A Few Tips on Easy Daily Exercise
Walk 10 Minutes a Day and Increase Your Fitness Level Old thinking was to work out in a sweat-filled gym for hours a day. No pain, no gain. New studies show that even short bouts of activity can increase your fitness level, especially if you're new at working out.
Park and Walk
Whenever you have an errand, park your car as far away as you can handle and walk to the store. At the mall, park at the farthest end and walk the length of the mall. Use every opportunity to walk. At the end of the day, it all adds up to better fitness.
Crunch in Bed
Before you even get out of bed in the morning, do 10 stomach crunches while lying flat on your mattress. Increase daily by one until you get up to 100. Think you'll never get there? Try it. You may eventually have to set your clock to wake up 15 minutes earlier, a small price to pay for a flatter stomach.

Longing for a miracle that will transform your life? Miracles happen, and if we don’t want that magic to disappear on us, we need to learn from each epiphany -- to integrate it, apply it, and build on it so we can permanently shift to a new level of being.
The real key to fulfillment lies in ONGOING transformation: building our awareness of daily opportunities to change our perceptions and raise our consciousness. Life is about dissolving the old and creating anew. The more we open to accepting and learning from every life experience, the more our lives transform.
"Enlightenment must come little by little -- otherwise it would overwhelm."

You'll find that the ingredients in Chai are used to promote healing and strengthen various parts of the body.
