And rose and white on the wanton breeze
The petals fall from the apple trees
-Francis W. Bourdillo (1852-1921)

BE OPEN TO CHANGE
“Balance is a dynamic process; it changes with the days, the seasons, the years.”
— Sherrill Sellman
How rigid are your routines? Do you exercise for 30 minutes, three times each week no matter how you feel?
Routines and structure can provide a valuable framework to bring discipline to our lives. At the same time, we are always changing and it’s wise to be sensitive to our physical, emotional and mental states so we can ensure that our activities truly meet our needs. We need to be willing to change our patterns when our practices no longer serve us.
“Only in growth, reform, and change, paradoxically enough, is true security to be found.”
— Anne Morrow Lindbergh
“The smallest change in perspective can transform a life. What tiny attitude adjustment might turn your world around?”
A Note from the Universe

You you, intentional.
Today’s Recipe: Sweet Potato Smoothie
A lot of people will toss sweet potatoes when they show signs of drying. They do not make good baked potatoes. They are good for whatever requires grated sweet potatoes. Baked potatoes are good for making pies, but for a baked sweet potato casserole, grated are best. Raw sweet potatoes are an excellent source of quick energy. Grated and used as you would carrots (in a salad, etc.) will give you a little energy boost.

“The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, nor to worry about the future, but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly.” -Buddha (563-483 B.C.)
“Live the present moment.” It sounds so simple, doesn’t it? Yet we seem to have a very difficult time doing that, indeed! Right now, right where you are, focus on this moment, and this moment alone. Experience the wholeness of it, the completeness of it. When we are in present moment awareness, we are not worried, we are not stressed – we simple ARE.
