My lifestyle was killing me and I knew I had to do something about it. I have learned that the best way to develop a healthy lifestyle is to discover the source of problem and then put a plan into action that will develop good health.

Wednesday, October 22, 2008 act of courage

There is never an ideal time to do anything. We can wait forever if we think that ideal opportunities will present themselves for acts of kindness and deeds of love. Grasp the opportunity. Make the most of good times and bad times. There must be a certain reckless abandon about the way we act. We cannot always be careful and calculating. We must do what should be done even when we don't have the time or things are not convenient.

Let's have the courage to live fully even when it is risky , vibrantly even when it leads to pain and spontaneously even it will leads to mistakes.

This attitude should be characterise not only the way we live, but also the way we serve. Service is never safe. It is always risky. We never know how we will be received ad what the outcomes will be. Service also never perfect. We serve inspite of our mistakes and our weaknesses. And service can also lead to pain. It can lead to the server feeling empty after having given much, It can result in lack of appreciation. It is usually involves carrying burdens that are not our owns.

The more we think about all of this , the less we are likely to do . Thus, service is an act of courage. It is an act of boldness. It is in some way foolhardy thing to do.
