This is the time of year to map our health, wealth, and happiness goals for the next year. Here is the quick review of map reading 101.

To find out where we want to go, we must know were we are now. To find where we are now, we must know where we have been.

June 2006 is when I started this journey to Happy Healthy Living. First, let me tell you where I had been for 74 years. I had become a mess. I drank too much. I ate terrible food. I sat around and got fatter, had blood pressure off the charts, out of shape, very seldom walked, did not exercise, and had very few good nights of sleep.  I knew where I had been, and I knew where I was going. I looked at the one in the mirror. “if you stay on this road you will be dead in the next five years”. That is what I said to me. I am a public speaker, and if Ido not have an audience, I talk to me.

We are born bitchy,scared ,and helpless. Happy people are more healthy than bitchy people. You must decide to be happy. Why? Abe Lincoln said we are about as happy as we want to be.

 Our body must have two fuels, just two, water and food. The one in the mirror says you can continue to eat bad food and sugar drinks because that takes no decision. An yet some people feel the must drink water and eat at least seven fresh or fresh frozen fruits and veggies and nuts every day. Why? They chose to be Happy and Healthy.

Our body needs us to do two things to keep it going for a long time before it shuts down and quits forever. The body needs to be in motion. Too many choices, so I walk and that gets this old body moving every day. The body loses its oomph and needs about seven or eight hours of shut down for sleep.

You don’t have to do anything. You are not required to get up from the TV and walk briskly. Nobody forces us to turn out the lights, get into bed, take deep breaths and get some deep sleep. And yet, some people look at the one in the mirror and decide the got to walk for twenty to sixty minutes every day and sleep seven or more hours. Why? They choose to be Happy and Healthy.

On June 12, 2006 I started this passion. I have walked evey day since June 12, 2006. I have not been sick. As a public speaker I inform, educate, and inspire by writing and speaking about Happy Healthy Living. Service clubs are aways looking for a 15 to 20-minute talk. MY STORY fits the bill. No charge but I do accept honorarium and reimbursement for travel. I also conduct workshops for companies and groups.
