Well, it’s another Lighten Up Monday! This video is a perfect example of why I worry about our attachments to digital devices these days. I think we’re all guilty of becoming addicted at some point or another. Be sure you watch the clip all the way to the end…

Recently, for the first time in five years I simply went out back, put my cane down, and started walking. I made it 42 yards.
Today I walked 5 miles.
As I opened my computer to write todays post, my eye was drawn to the most recent post of my dear friend, Michele Cushatt, who is fighting cancer. Here at the beginning of the new year, whether you are riding the crest of success or gasping for breath and seeking a ray of hope, this honest and courageous story will inspire you to keep fighting to live fully alive. I am convinced God wanted me to see this today and to share it with you!
Millions of people are looking forward to the first days of 2015 like a child looks forward to a new school year. Remember the anticipation? The slate was clean. A new chance to get better grades, make new friends and take hold of exciting opportunities. Why then did so many of those years slip by without change? What could have been done differently?
The 2015 New Year’s celebrations are over. The lights have dimmed and the smell of fireworks has drifted away. But opportunity and hope did not disappear with the smoke. Here are four steps to help make this year one of your best!
One of the principles that has allowed me to enjoy the benefits of losing 47 lbs came from my wife’s Weight Watchers group. They ask their participants to write down every thing they eat BEFORE they put it in their mouth. “Write it before you bite it” is the motto. It is amazing how much we eat without even thinking. Try to remember what you ate yesterday. I guarantee that unless you wrote it down, your estimate will be way less than you actually ate. When we “write it before we bite it” it allows us to make a judgment call on both the consequences and the benefits of what we are about to consume.
That got me thinking.
