Ok, everyone. I've been preaching the benefits of drinking enough water to just about everbody I talk to. Read the article I wrote for Touchstone, the journal of the Oregon Massage Therapists Association about water.

And here are some additional musings.

  1. Forgive yourself. Hey, we all make mistakes. None of us has done anything that we cannot live with. You have already made the choices you have made in life. Take responsibility for the choices, and accept the results. Ask the Lord for forgiveness for your mistakes, then forgive yourself.
  2. Forgive others. One of the biggest mistakes we make in our lives is to carry grudges. Those grudges weigh heavily upon us, and do nothing against the other person. Victim of a crime or other circumstance? Forgive the perpetrator; he or she was acting upon his/her best judgement at the time, even if it was totally wrong and hurt you a lot. Carrying that hurt, that grudge, hurts you and your relationships with those you love. Forgive, and let go.
  3. Laugh. Humor really is the best medicine. Is your situation really so grave that you cannot laugh? Laughter can overcome depression, grief, and even cancer! Find the humor in situations. Rent a funny movie. Play. Have fun.
  4. Humility. Even if you are in a business where you must promote yourself, show a little kindness. The world does not revolve around you. There's an old saying in show business that the people you meet on your way to stardom are the same people you meet on your way back down. So be good to everyone. Accept that you are who you are because others have helped you get to this point.
  5. Love. Show love to everyone you meet. Act as though everyone is important. (They are!). Save the intimacy for those closest to you, but treat everyone as though they were the most important person in the world.


Put more life in your years!
