“Life is a grindstone. Whether it grinds you down or polishes you up depends on you.” ~Jacob M. Braude
Profound words. Think of this as your week closes in on you and the responsibilities, challenges, & stressors may be piling up. Are you riding those realities like a wave that needs to be conquered, or are you letting those realities become excuses that prevent you from reaching your full potential?
The Dailey HEALTH Tip: DID YOU KNOW that a major contributor to GI complaints in children is STRESS??? Children are exquisitely sensitive to stress and will manifest symptoms in response to it. Creating a home environment that is a sanctuary rather than a battlefield can go a long way towards reducing the stress of kids. If your little guy or gal complains of belly issues, and you can rule out irritants in the diet, check the stress being brought into the house. The same can be said for adults that have ongoing issues with IBS too!
THANK YOU to everyone who sent Eric words of encouragement over this last week! He came in to work today at Sherwood (1st day back of light duty!) & he tearfully thanked me, and asked me to thank all of “my people” for being so kind to him. Words truly can heal!!! He said that it was all of the love and kindness that has helped him recover. He is still quite battered and scarred, but will make a full recovery in time to come. THANK YOU for proving that humanity is GOOD! Way to LIVE with EXCELLENCE!
CLASS UPDATE: FUN FRIDAY is almost here! Lots of requests for POOLSIDE workouts, so as long as the thunderstorms hold off I plan to honor those requests! 🙂 Who’s up for the FUN?!
The weekend is almost here!!!
p.s. your Dailey thought…
