yes word of wonder! Every one has a different definition of a good day. It can be good exercise to learn what are the attributes of good day? While certain general rules apply, everyone has their own unique idea of what constitutes the ideal day, or what the minimum requirements are of having a day that can be considered "good." We all have our own best ways of ensuring a good day. What is your definition of a good day, and how do you attain one? Share your best tips, and see what other members have to say.
My criteria; Good sleep, good food, good health,complete work out of yoga,meditaion and good reading material. Is it too much to ask?

Good morning all. Just wanted to check in and say hello.
Been a weird couple of days for me. I am doing my walking BUT my hip is acting up again. THEN i get a call from my doctor saying the bone scan I got came back positive for osteoporosis. That really knocked me for a loop after thinking the walking was doing me good. After seeing my new pm doctor I learned that the steroid injections could be the culprit.
Now here I am thinking the walking is doing me some good but now I have to watch because of weakened bone structure. Well it knocked me for a day and then I figure not much I can do about it until I get the medication recommended. Till then, I am just waiting for the weather to warm up a bit and continue my walking.
I unplugged my wheelchair and don't know if I can charge it up again BUT I really don't think I need it. I have been doing so good with the walking and then I get this call from the doctor that put me on guard. My doctor knows my history and my mental attitude. He knows all that I have gone through. He has been a good friend. I trust his judgment and so proud to show him that I am walking again in spite of the medical report recently. He knows and I know that will not stop me. Just can't go back to dancing again just yet. If I do a dip with my partner, I may not come back up again, so I will continue on my road and keep my goal of wading in the water during the summer. (by the way, I managed so really heavy steps the other day and although I felt it, it felt good to be able to climb the steps - a lot of them-) so life goes on and so do I.
Like I have a choice?

i think we are in the same boat madman----the one with all the holes in it!
The sharks are circling.
Waves are picking up big time!
And then you and i just take a break from it and Walk!
The Dream of Being in a Boat  
Fades away.
and Life goes on.
And that is our Choice!
Keep on keeping on and walking no matter what
even if it has to be on Water.
Ya know?
Good Post my Friend.

If I had sharks circling me, I would learn to walk on water...! It is either sink or swim and as a former sailor, I do not want my former reputation to be tarnished, so the shark would lose!

Blank

Impressions, I have quite a few. You tube would only be a distraction for me but the coffee, croissants and a lot of wining sounds good to me.

My "impression" is:  if you call it art------it is art. And you can "view" the art-----or Be the art.  Why not "Be" the art!

It's good to keep active when dealing with Osteoprosis. (spelling bad on that one)

My Husbands Doc told him that the best medicine for that is to keep active...So put that Wheel Chair away MadMan.....

so....it is a self-guided tour. Start off at any art museum if you like and then follow the trail by cking the side-bars for other opportunities and museums.
Or whichever artist you like---wikipedia or you tube it ..Wiki often has wonderful links you can use to design your tour.  Be creative....try something new....follow the Yellow Brick Click Links wherever they lead each "play" session.  Listen to all the great composers-----listen to jacqueline duPre play cello----let your mind wander.....
    Yes. Self designed is the way to go. On the "tour" in life itself. Join in the Caravan.
