In his perennial best seller "Discovering the Power of Positive Thinking" Norman Vincent Peale digs deep into simple truths: Hanging on to negative thoughts drags you down, and conversely, focusing on the positive will lift you up.
It is so easy to get caught up in the negative things in life, and yet, a simple change in mindset can improve our lives greatly. The effects of stress, worry and negative thinking can impact our health, our relationships and honestly, all that we do.
Here are a few steps you can take to embrace the positive:
Look on the Bright Side - No, really, I am not kidding. Choosing to find the positive in every circumstance will become a habit. A grey rainy day will no longer be depressing, but rather a wonderous time of cool and calm, the rhythmic sounds of the rain falling become a mantra of peace for the soul.
Sieze the Day - Every day is a fresh opportunity to take on the world, to move forward in our work and relationships. Don't let the day control you, grab hold and move through each day with assurity and purpose.
Don't dwell on the past. Live life with the thought that the worst that you experience will soon become a dim fading memory. From the worst events in our lives there are lessons to be learned. Remember these simple words:
"The past is history, the future is a mystery. Today is a Gift, That is why it is called The Present"
Be an Optimist - Approach every experience, every opportunity and every relationship from the positive perspective. Be ready in your mind to find whatever good there is in every situation. Believe that in the end, all will work out for the best.

By Public Law 176, enacted by Congress in 1945, designated the first week in October each year as "National Employ the Physically Handicapped Week." President Harry S. Truman designated the President's Committee on Employment of People with Disabilities to carry out the observance. In 1962, the word "physically" was removed from the week's name to acknowledge the employment needs of all Americans with disabilities. In 1988, Congress expanded the week to a month and changed its name to "National Disability Awareness Month," which eventually evolved to its current name.
Here is the original proclamation in its entirety:
By the President of the United States of America
Whereas this Nation has an unused reservoir of skills and strength in those of our fellow citizens who by reason of physical handicaps are denied opportunities for employment, and
Whereas the people of this National are profoundly conscious of the limitless debt they owe to their fellow citizens who count the costs of wars in terms of physical handicaps; and
Whereas each year the toll of industrial and other accidents increases the number of handicapped persons seeking work, and
Whereas thousands of handicapped workers have demonstrated that physical handicaps are no insurmountable bar to efficient and productive labor, and
Whereas this Nation needs the full measure of faith and participation in our democratic life which can only come in full measure to the handicapped when they become self-supporting and independent citizens, and
Whereas the employers of this Nation have a unique opportunity to assist in this national effort to rehabilitate otherwise qualified but physically handicapped workers by employing their services; and
Whereas the Congress, by a joint resolution approved August 11, 1945 (59 Stat. 530) has designated the first week in October of each year as National Employ the Physically Handicapped Week, during which appropriate ceremonies are to be held throughout the Nation, and has requested that the President issue each year a suitable proclamation:
Now, Therefore, I, Harry S. Truman, President of the United States of America, do hereby call upon the people of the United States to observe the week of October 5-11, 1947, as National Employ the Physically Handicapped Week. I also call upon the governors of states, mayors of cities, and heads of other agencies of government and other public officials, as well as leaders of industry, labor, and civic groups to make every effort to enlist public support for a sustained program aimed at the employment and full use of the capacities of physically handicapped workers.
In Witness Whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States of America to be affixed.
Done at the City of Washington this 27th day of August in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and forty-seven, and of the Independence of the United States of America the one hundred and seventy-second.

This is a fantastic event for Seniors that we will be attending this coming Thursday in Woodbury. Check out the flyer (PIcture Below) or follow this link:
There are those who ascribe to the notion that eating healthy means enduring a lean, mean, boring, unpleasant diet that closely resembles a plate full of twigs and bark. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Fresh fruits and vegetables abound, as well as a wide variety of options for healthy carbs and protein. For the omnivores among us, meat of every kind, seafood and poultry can provide healthy protein for us at every stage of life. To keep our meat, seafood and poultry dishes healthy, you just need to follow a few simple guidelines:
- Shop for leaner cuts
- Trim fat where possible
- Prepare using healthy techniques (Not frying!)
- Serve in sensible portions
For the vegetarian or vegan, soy products, especially tofu, quinoa, and proper combinations of foods from the "complete" protein triad provide healthy protein. What is the "complete" protein triad? Simply this; very few vegan items constitute a complete protein, in and of themselves. Yes, they contain protein, but not in the form our body needs. To get there, you can select from the few "complete" protein items out there, like quinoa and soy, or you can combine items from two of the following groups:
- Beans and Legumes
Vegans have a more limited choice, as dairy is not an option. If you don't use a "complete" protein like soy or quinoa, what ever else you put in a vegan meal, it must include grains and beans/legumes to provide proper nourishment. Perhaps now you understand why rice and beans is such a popular dish, with hundreds of variations served in nearly every culture.
Traditionally we get most of our carbs from a starch (potato) or grains (rice, bread, etc.). Potatoes, in proper servings, not laden with butter bacon and sour cream, are actually quite healthy. Other options are yams, sweet potatoes (there is a difference!), whole grain rice and more. In place of your basic loaf of white bread there are fantastic whole grain options available. Take a little time to research what's healthy, what's not, and read labels on the food you buy. You can't eat healthier, if you don't know how healthy you are eating now.
