NOT ALL EXERCISES ARE GOOD RECIPES FOR THE SOUL!
After writing about New Year’s resolutions last week and how often we set ourselves up for failure, I thought it only fitting to gift you with a snappy recipe for success.

Although I will share with you here a list of EXERCISES THAT DO NO GOOD, I wish I could remember where I first found this list or who first handed it to me, as I’ve had it for years. I trust that I am plagiarizing no one and that it is, in fact, a generic list available in a variety of formats from which we can each take whatever is helpful.

So, in the spirit of wishing to make life easier, and in the words of Sir William Osler: “LIVE NEITHER IN THE PAST NOR IN THE FUTURE,BUT LET EACH DAY’S WORK ABSORB YOUR ENERGIES AND SATISFY YOUR WIDEST AMBITION …” I offer this list of what to avoid, if you wish to succeed in satisfying your ambitions, fulfilling your hopes, and realizing your dreams.

EXERCISES THAT DO NO GOOD

CLIMBING
the walls


DRAGGING

your heels

GRABBING
at straws

SKIPPING
your meals

TILTING
at windmills

SPINNING
your wheels

JUMPING
the gun

PASSING
the buck


KICKING

yourself


PUSHING

your luck


STRETCHING

the truth


RUNNING

amok

May we all run gracefully, eat healthily, and create situations that will – more likely than not – offer us success.

Do let me know if this recipe satisfies your palette and is food for your soul!

Warm regards ~ Linda
