Do not think of what you do not have;
Instead, appreciate what you have and can still have.

Do not think of things lost;
Instead, value what you still have and may yet find.

Do not cry over spilled milk;
Instead, rejoice in what was left.

Do not think of what you are not;
Instead, be humble with what you are and can still become.

Do not think of what others say you are;
Instead, concern yourself with what you affirm to be.

Do not think of the hours and days past;
Instead, look eagerly to times that are yet to come.

Do not think of what you failed to do;
Instead, think of those that you were able to do and can still best do.

Do not think of mistakes committed;
Instead, count the things you did right.

Do not think much of the pain you have caused;
Instead, plan for ways to make amends.

Do not think of the sufferings you now bear;
Instead, look to the comfort when relief draws near.

Do not consume yourself with thoughts of what could have been;
Instead, marvel at what has become and will become.

Do not be anxious to attain greater happiness;
Instead, content yourself with the little things which bring you bliss.

Do not aspire to fill your cup at once;
Instead, have the patience to do it little by little.

And if by chance you fail, do not fret over the empty part on top;
Instead, celebrate the space filled up.

Do not condemn nature when it is at its worst;
Instead, think of the times when it was at its best.

Do not blame luck for things you miss;
Instead, learn from things in which you have been remiss.

Nor should you curse luck or others for life’s misfortunes;
Instead, accept them as part of life.

I say then, Live fully, die a little,
Learn much but question less.

Have just enough but give much more,
Be contented each time to crave much less.

Doubt less and affirm a lot,
Understand more, and be understood less.

Worry a little but hope you must,
Accept all, resist the least.

For all things happen,
In due time they must.

Benefits of Diet that favours less meat, more veggies, and Olive Oil.

Past research already has linked the so-called Mediterranean diet with longevity. A new study finds that certain aspects of the diet — such as high consumption of vegetables and olive oil, low consumption of meat, and moderate consumption of alcohol — may be more strongly linked to longevity.

Researchers looked at the Greek participants in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition. This included 23,349 men and women not previously diagnosed with cancer, heart disease, or diabetes.

Researchers examined their diets and followed them for 8.5 years, on average, until June 2008. All diets were rated according to how closely they adhered to a traditional Mediterranean diet.

During the study period, there were 652 deaths among 12,694 participants who had lower Mediterranean diet scores of 0-4 and 423 deaths among the 10,655 participants who had higher scores of at least 5. In general, those with higher scores were more likely to still be alive at the end of the study.

Certain aspects of the diet were more linked to this phenomenon than others. Contributors, in order of importance, were: moderate alcohol consumption, low consumption of meat and meat products, high vegetable consumption, high fruit and nut consumption, high monounsaturated to saturated fat ratio, and high legume consumption.

The work of Louise Hay has transformed the lives of millions.
Here are some empowering tips from her philosophy for YOUR life!

1.   Be willing to love and accept yourself – no matter what!
You don’t need to lose the weight, have the relationship, or
anything else first. Start NOW.

2.   Pay attention to your thoughts. If your thoughts create your
future (and we believe they do!) – are your “typical” thoughts
during the day the ones you really want to be thinking? You have
the power to change them in a moment.

3.   Learn to create and use powerful affirmations to focus on
what you DO want in your life. (More on affirmations.)

4.  Nurture your Inner Child. Talk to him/her with encouraging
words and positive messages.

5.   Be willing to change. Our ego tends to hang on to “the way
things are.” Trust yourself and Spirit as you change.

6.   Meditate on a regular basis. This will help you listen to your
inner guidance.

7.  Listen to your body’s messages. They will give you vital clues
about the emotions affecting you.

8.   Honor your emotions, but don’t get stuck in them. Release
anger, resentment, and guilt.

9.   Forgive the past and free yourself from bondage.

10.   Stop critcizing and judging yourself. You are doing the best you can!
