Walk Until You Feel There Are No Hills

Walk until you feel there are no hills.

Exercise for a happy, healthy life.

Troubles: You can’t walk away from your troubles but you can walk your troubles away. What do I mean by that? I mean you can exercise your way to a better tomorrow.

If in your everyday life you feel like you’re constantly climbing over hills, you put one behind you only for another to take its place. Then it’s time for you to take a walk, walk every day and when you’re on your walk think of every good thing that has happened in your life. Not only will your body thank you for the exercise, your mind will get stronger too. If you keep the exercising and positive thinking routine up for long enough; you will find all the hills in your life will have disappeared, and your walking will have gotten easier too.

The little things that annoy you today will no longer be part of your life because you will have found better things to concentrate on.

Some people ask me why I walk. The answer is simple; I walk because I want to have a fit body and healthy mind, not only for now but for my future too.

You Do Not Have To Concentrate on Everything

You Cannot Find Happiness unless You Find Gratitude

happiness and gratitude are linked.“Happiness is an effect that is experienced because of gratitude.”

You hear it everywhere, find happiness but in reality, happiness is not something you can find because it is a feeling you experience when you’re grateful for the things you already have in your life.

“You cannot say you’ve no reason to be grateful because everybody has reasons to be grateful.” Below are just some of them.

You have the ability to think for yourself; this is a gift although few people use this gift, most people adopt other people’s opinions as their own.

“Your lungs draw in free oxygen to feed your body’s needs.”

“You have a heart in your chest that pumps oxygen rich blood around your body which keeps you alive.”

“Your skin protects your body from airborne parasites.”

“Your skeleton protects your internal organs and helps you stand upright.”

You have the ability to think for yourself, this is a gift although few people use this gift, most people adopt other people’s opinions as their own.

Everybody has reasons to be gratefulYou have a mouth to eat with. A nose to smell with. Ears to listen with. Legs, feet and toes to get you from a to b in perfect balance. Arms to carry the big things, fingers to pick up the little things although most men use this function with their noses which annoys most women. Stephen Hawking would love to exchange bodies with you for a while just to experience once more the wondrous feelings you ignore. The ability to click your fingers and tap your toes is not to be underrated. Try enjoying music without moving, it’s not as much fun.

You can walk, jog and run. Most people learned to ride a bicycle and then drive a car; it was at this point the need for having a fit body seemed to be unnecessary, that is until they notice they are spending a lot of money on buying bigger clothes which means they need bigger wardrobes which means more money. Most people don’t consider leaving the car at home more often, this would have two effects, they would get fitter and save money.

A healthy mind and bodyBe grateful for your friends and family; These are the people in your life who love you, they may not always show it, or they may not always be with you, but they exist, they have an emotional bond with you that time and distance cannot break.

“People who exude gratitude also enjoy the company of other people more often because everybody likes to be around people who appreciate life.”

“A healthy mind and body will everything you need into your life.”

An Apology is Taking Responsibility

If you know you have to apologise.An apology is taking responsibility for your behaviour but it is only the first step, in order to take full responsibility you must make a conscious decision to change the thought process which lead to your inappropriate behaviour.

Change is inevitableIf you spend your whole life apologizing to people for your behaviour, you are not taking responsibility for your behaviour, you’re just making excuses for it.

 

“When you’re the victim of bad behaviour, it’s black and white; when you’re the perpetrator, there are a million excuses.”

Nobody Enjoys Receiving Bad Karma

Give freely....“You are free to make any decision you wish; But you are not free from the consequences of that decision.” That’s life is a nutshell, what you give will be given back to you, not in the form that you give it but in some shape or form that you will like or dislike depending on what you give and how you give it.

If you give but always expect something in return from the person you are giving the gift to, you will always pay in some form or other for the gifts you receive.

If you give with a good heart, you will have a greater gift returned to you by somebody else, and you will thoroughly enjoy receiving the gift because you know you deserved it.

The following are my favourite quotes on the topic. Please share yours in the comment section.

  • “How people treat you is their karma, how you react is yours.” ~Wayne Dyer
  • “Karma only feels good when you do good deeds.” ~Anon
  • “Karma has no menu. You get what you deserve.” ~Andrew Strong.
  • “The gift that is freely given will be returned to you free of charge.” ~Andrew Strong.
  • “You reap what you plant.” ~Anon
  • “The best revenge is forgiveness.” ~Anon

People Can be Insulted Through Ignorance

Ignorance of the laws of the land is not an excuse a judge will accept for committing a crime, but in our everyday lives it’s an excuse many people often use. The words normally used are, “I didn’t know.” This is used by people who have little empathy or as the phrase that’s more commonly used today, “low EQ (emotional quotient or intelligence).” This arises when people have little or no understanding of how their words and actions affect other people. Their attitude is, if it doesn’t affect me, why should it affect anybody else. They don’t realise everybody else has different levels of sensitivity.

In a working environment this can be sorted by the hr department, a level of professionalism is expected from people in the office. If somebody’s mental well-being is affected by somebody else’s behaviour, it’s the responsibility of the company to find a resolution.

In the outside world, it can be more difficult to find a resolution because it depends on the relationship between the people in question. If there is an open communication channel between the two people a simple please stop doing that, it’s very annoying.

Action without understandingIf the relationship is more complicated or the person thinks it’s everybody else’s problem, not theirs. The resolution is to stop hanging out with the person in question, or take the moral high ground and forgive them for their actions. “The weak can never forgive, forgiveness is an attribute of the strong.”

The first resolutions will work because you can’t be affected by people who are not part of your social group.

The second resolution will work better because when you forgive somebody else, you understand they are not responsible for their actions; they have grown up in an environment where they didn’t learn from their parents or peers, and they didn’t have the EQ to learn for themselves what is acceptable and unacceptable behaviour.

Some of my favourite quotes on this topic are,

  • “Life becomes easier when you learn to accept an apology you never got.”  ~Robert Brault.
  • “Hanging on to a resentment, someone once said, is like drinking poison and hoping it will kill someone else.” ~ Alice May
  • “There is nothing more frightful than ignorance in action.” ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.
  • “When dealing with people, remember you are not dealing with creatures of logic, but with creatures of emotion.” ~Dale Carnegie
  • “Any person capable of angering you becomes your master.” ~Epictetus
  • “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” ~Jesus
  • “Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.” ~Martin Luther King jr.

Cause and Effect can Lead to Procrastination

“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” A lot of people fear to act because of the potential side effects of their words or actions. This often leads to people remaining in their undesirable position for years. If they can answer the following question honestly, they may learn to live with the consequences.

Imagine the worst prepare for the best.

Example: If somebody has a problem with a person in their life; one possible outcome is the person changes to become somebody whose company they can enjoy all the time, or they find they no longer have to speak with somebody they don’t really like.

“A clear and innocent conscience fears nothing.” ~Elizabeth 1
