I want you to picture these three situations:


You’re at a red light and a man pulls up and gives you the finger because he thinks you cut him up at the roundabout back there.

Road rage


You apply for a promotion at work and think you deserve to get it but you get passed over by the boss for someone you don’t like.

A good friend can’t make your party because she’s ill, but you later discover that she went to another party instead.

Now how do you react?

Typical reactions might be:

You wind your window down and give him both barrels even though the kids are in the car.


You seethe with resentment and become passive aggressive at work undermining your newly promoted collegue by not giving the moral or technical support they need.


You cut your friend off refusing to return her calls, emails or Facebook messages and bad mouthing her behind her back.

All 3 of these responses are understandable to a degree.


And here’s why.

How many things are you putting off till “Later”...?

Bills.

Shopping.

workouts.

Relationships.

Tough conversations.

Happiness.....

How many times have you said

"When I have....... then i'll be happy"

Or "When I look like....... Then I can be happy" 

The problem we have is thinking there will be enough time.

The truth is there isn't.

Time is not manageable.

Time is constant.

You can manage your usage of that time, but you cannot control it.

The clock is always ticking.

 

There is a Quote from Brandon Lee that I love 

“Because we do not know when we will die, we get to think of life as an inexhaustible well. And yet everything happens only a certain number of times, and a very small number really. How many more times will you remember a certain afternoon of your childhood, an afternoon that is so deeply a part of your being that you cannot conceive of your life without it? Perhaps four, or five times more? Perhaps not even that.

How many more times will you watch the full moon rise? Perhaps twenty. And yet it all seems limitless…”

 

Time is the only true currency we have.

 

Which makes us all equally wealthy.

Stop worrying about what you don't have, and focus on what you do have.

Nourish yourself.

Nourish your relationships.

Love hard.With everything inside you

Because at the end, I don't want you to be full of regret.....

Here's a great recipe I found the other week that makes a great mid week tea especially post excercise because of the good fats and complex carbs (The sort you should be having)

Ok first off a couple of disclaimers,

This post is about cellulite, what it is, why you have it, and what (if anything) you can do about it.

So be warned there is a lot of science geekery involved.

But before I get into all of the info, I feel that it’s important to point out that cellulite is perfectly normal, common, and fine.

There is NOTHING wrong with having cellulite, and your body isn’t “ruined” or“disgusting” for having some lumps and bumps.

In fact, speaking as a man from a man's point of veiw I can catagorically state it’s really no big deal to us, we really don't give a toss.

But I'm writing this article because I want you to get the Info from Hopefully a trusted resource, not some beauty company that’s going to prey on your insecurities and shame you into spending pounds to “rid your body of these unsightly dimples.”

If you feel that reducing the appearance of your cellulite isn’t something you really care about, that’s totally cool too.

At the end of the day You can keep your body strong, fit and healthy, but the bottom line is that if you don’t love your body now, will you actually ever love it at a different size, shape or level of smoothness?

Appreciate your body in all its different shapes and appearances, and it will love you back

Cellulite is a skin condition that affects upwards of 90% of women all  over the world.

 To be clear, women of allshapes and sizes can have cellulite, even many of the most admired, fit and slim actresses and models have cellulite, but due to strategic clothing choices, poses, and/or photoshop, we don’t always see that these women have cellulite as well.

So why is it that women are the ones who primarily deal with cellulite?

Is there anything you can do to prevent it or minimize its appearance?
