Today’s Health Tip ~ Onions Pack a Healthy Punch

Onions Are Good For You

They’re champs when it comes to polyphenols and flavonoids, which are both linked to lower oxidative stress and reduced cancer risk. An onion’s sulfur compounds can also help control diabetes symptoms and protect your heart from disease. Tip: The outermost layers tend to hold more healthy nutrients.

Note: I love sweet onions. Vidalia and Texas 1015 (It’s the official Texas state vegetable) are two great choices.

Something to Think About

What is time to you? is it something that goes too fast? Is it something that drags? How do you use your time? Once a second goes by it is lost, it cannot be retrieved. Nor can we add time to what already exists. Time is equally distributed to all living beings. We each have 24 hours in a day. How we use our time is up to us. Use time wisely, what you do with your time is your legacy. 

Today’s Poem ~ Life

Henry Van Dyke
Let me but live my life from year to year,
With forward face and unreluctant soul;
Not hurrying to, nor turning from the goal;
Not mourning for the things that disappear
In the dim past, nor holding back in fear
From what the future veils; but with a whole
And happy heart, that pays its toll
To Youth and Age, and travels on with cheer.

So let the way wind up the hill or down,
O’er rough or smooth, the journey will be joy:
Still seeking what I sought when but a boy,
New friendship, high adventure, and a crown,
My heart will keep the courage of the quest,
And hope the road’s last turn will be the best.

Today’s Good Word ~ Build

Are you a builder? I’m speaking of builders of people. One does not need a construction degree to be a people builder. A people builder helps others to see their strengths. A people builder helps others to realize they are good. A people builder inspires others. A people builder offers a helping hand. A people builder doesn’t shame, belittle, or condemn. A people builder knows that every person has a reservoir of good and unlimited potential. 

A Better Life ~ The Pollen Path

According the anthropologist, Joseph Campbell, “the Navajo have that wonderful image of what they call the pollen path. The Navajo say, ‘Oh, beauty before me, beauty behind me, beauty to the right of me, beauty to the left of me, beauty above me, beauty below me, I’m on the pollen path.'” When we open our eyes to the wonder around us we see the beauty in everyone near us and all that surrounds us. Here’s hoping you’re on the pollen path today.

Today’s Power Thought ~ Make More Friends, Get More Done

The default is to find fault. Bypass the default and find good. Find areas of agreement instead of areas of disagreement. You’ll get a lot more done and make more friends.
