Welcome to another weekend edition of Mintdom,

I know I talked about this earlier in the week, but I have issues with time.  If I want to do ALL the things that I want to do, I think that I would not be able to sleep.  Obviously, I know that my issue is not time; it is how I choose to spend my time.  Time is the one big leveler.  We all have the same amount in our day no matter who we are, how rich or poor we are, or how smart we are, or where we live in the world.  We ALL have the same amount of time.  When I tell myself that I do not have ‘time’ to do knee exercises, I guess that I am telling myself that I do not think that they are important enough to choose to do them.  That is interesting to me because I am the one that made a decision to do them in the first place, so at one point I thought it was a good idea.  I think I still do.  I am not sure what is holding me back. If any of you have an idea, I would appreciate it because I am struggling with this right now.  Feel free to reply to this e-mail and for all of you braver folks, to reply to Mintdom.

I am late with this posting today, and with good reason.  I spent time with family and friends this morning and into the afternoon.  For me, my favorite way to spend my time is with people that I love.  I would put people ahead of almost all choices.  I prioritize the people that I care about in my life.  This morning, my sister invited me to a brunch she was giving for some friends. It was a beautiful drive out to the country, a scrumptious brunch, but most of all a treasured time spent with everyone that was there.  I could not have ordered a better day. We all have 24-hours to spend each day.  How do you spend yours?

No reward is offered, for they are gone forever”

People have been talking about time since biblical times.  I thought you might enjoy listening and watching this beautiful presentation with words taken from the bible.  Click on this link for the presentation:

For everything there is a season,
And a time for every matter under heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die;
A time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
A time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
A time to embrace, And a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to seek, and a time to lose;
A time to keep, and a time to throw away;
A time to tear, and a time to sew;
A time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate,
A time for war, and a time for peace.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

OK, here is my October goal – I am going back to the 7,000-step goal.  I think I can do that if I take it easy and do not get on the treadmill.  I will commit to doing at least 10 minutes of cardio daily, and go to the pool at least twice a week.  I think that will work.  That said, I am off to the pool. I have Toastmasters in the morning so do not look for Mintdom except for possibly a short one.

Make the rest of your day a GREAT one, IF you choose to

Life is good!
