Are you really sick, or just think you are? Hypochondria is when you think you’re ailing with a sickness or disease. Defined as “worrying excessively that you are or may become seriously ill that is unwarranted.” And the power of thought along that line can produce all the symptoms to mimic what is feared.

So does medicine, or the power of thought make you healthy? While you scratch your head thinking such a comment is ridiculous, consider

#Deletefacebook!

Just did it. Been on the verge for a few months, but finally tired of being used for Zuckerberg’s benefit. And it is for his benefit and no one else’s. Sure, advertisers make hay off his back, but they could care less about ethics. “Z” has fallen into the same mix like so many others that have stumbled into the billion dollar bracket.

Suddenly it’s the “all’s fair in love and war” type attitude. The general public are nothing more than pawns to be moved about for fun and profit. “Z” has without doubt been schooled by others to think he is providing some priceless service to mankind. Sorta like

Bliss Bites Before Biting!

Bliss Bites? This is for real…right? Yes it is and they are simply the best. Beyond the best depending what you’re comparing them with. For a simple, healthy snack with no sugar added, and with or without gluten at your choice.

What’s in it has to be the first question. Start with dates, add walnuts, whole almonds, almond butter, chocolate in the form of chips or any other form you desire. Add to that real Maple Syrup (from the tree and not with maple flavoring added with sugar or aspartame and caramel coloring), sea salt and real vanilla extract. For those with

Do you dare to do…what? Is going along with conventional ideas and pressures where you feel comfortable? That’s what is generally referred to as going with the flow. Following the crowd. Doing whatever, because someone else does. You get the idea.

The opposite for most is just too scary. Daring to do what you love absolutely falls into that category. What’s more frightening is most have no idea what they love to do. You’ve heard that question. If you could do anything you wanted and money was not the objective, what would you do? Suppose you couldn’t

Handwriting articles for content

Do you want to make money by writing articles?  If so, you may be curious how you make the most money.  Naturally you can find well-paying jobs writing content. There is another approach you can take which involves writing articles quickly. Doesn’t it make sense that the more articles you can write you can make more money?  Doing it faster is key.

Altitude Sign At Jose Rivas Refuge on Volcano Cotopaxi 2017

One more Bucket List item, or sorta, removed. Since the Ecuadorian Volcano, Cotopaxi, is considered in an eruptive state, scaling to the top is still off limits. No, there is no actual eruption, at least in the sense of lava flowing from the top. No huge molten boulders flying

Many people sign up for an affiliate marketing opportunity, place a few ads, and sit back waiting for that first $1,000 or $50,000 to roll in with their name on it. Of course, only disappointment rolls in when they realize that this wasn’t a get rich plan; it wasn’t even

Up against a tree before being UP in the tree!

If you’re crusin’ then you’re loosin’! That’s one way to look at what happens if your grey matter is not fully engaged. So what’s going on up there when you’re just sitting, passively contemplating…nothing in particular? Have you ever noticed how your thoughts resemble popcorn? Thoughts jump randomly from one topic to another with no obvious connection. It may even seem like some sort of serendipitous place to be, as it rarely leads to the negative. How can that be known? Ahh…well personal experience of the writer is a great place to start.

Consider how many things you do on complete auto pilot? Are you thinking about your driving on your way to work, or shopping? How about the way you fry eggs, or toast bread? A good case can be made that the subconscious has taken over when you’re doing those things. That allows your thoughts to actually wander. The question is what happens
