Learning How to Be ‘Always Ready’ [a different take on an old post]

Comments are closed.

During my military days, I was once assigned to a unit who had a motto of, “Always Ready”. (Tish was cool as hell when everyone snapped to attention and yelled it out– …was a lil bit corny tho…) It was a training unit and I believe the ethos behind it was that, as an individual and collective as a unit; we should always be ready to contribute to the accomplishment of the mission.

Therefore, being mentally, and physically prepared and present were essential in meeting goals.  Even during personal crisis, you had a contribution to make.  Now, I wished I learned how to totally apply that to my overall life.  I was great at compartmentalizing as I think many were.  It helped me to displace and set aside the private side of my life to accomplish things on the ‘Soldier’ side.

In reflection, incorporating my entire self might have worked better for me.  For some, separating ‘work life’ from ‘personal/home life’ might work great… but that shit doesn’t work for everybody.  I think I’ll go more into depth about in an eBook, but for now we’ll keep pushing on the concept. (You know I like to keep my posts close to 300 words or less.)

So, the question is, How Do You Become Always Ready? I can say for me, learning about myself helped a lot.  Getting proper rest and exercise also helped.  The last thing I’ll mention here is motivation.  Some people are givers.  If you are one, learn to give that same energy you are willing to give to the job, to yourself.  Doing so might put you on the path to finding happiness.

I hope this helps!  Visit my site often!!

I’m working on a few eBooks as extensions about various topics I’ve posted on! 😉

Do You Think It Matters When You Eat Fruit?

Spring time is coming.  Time to start shedding those winter pounds. 😏  If you’ve started adding more fruit to your diet and meals, you might have the same question I had.  Do you eat the fruit before, during, or after the meal?

I’ve heard a variety of things on the topic so, I put the question to Google.  (You can see  the link search below.)  Honestly, I think I agree more with my sister on this when she says she doesn’t think it matters.  But, there is a part of me that still thinks it depends Read More

2021…Are You Having Fun Yet?

Comments are closed.

I am.  Twenty-Twenty-One so far, has been a year of moving forward.  Trump lost.  Progressives have gained some ground within and without the Democratic Party.  And we continue trying to make things better.

I must admit though, I am absolutely ready for Progressives to be a majority in the House and Senate in 2022.  I truly believe that it is possible.  Personally speaking, I am tired of both Democrats and Republicans.  I want people who are willing and ready to do big things for the American people, and not so much for corporations– because Read More

It Felt Like I Just Freed Up Part of My Brain😳

Happy Holidays!

I was just watching a  Netflix show called The Social Dilemma.  It was talking about how many of the platforms, including browsers and search engines are designed to manipulate our behavior.  I kinda knew that, but… it was one of those pieces of knowledge that you just stick in the back of the brain– for future use.😏

Anyway, I wanted to test that theory, so I cut off my phone.  I did not put it on vibrate.  I did not put it on silent.  I did not put it in airplane mode.  I cut it off. 😳 When I say that it felt like I freed up a portion of my brain, Read More

Let’s Talk About Salt

Comments are closed.

The other day, I was sitting at the table and was trying to decide which salt to use;  Table Salt or Sea Salt.  My inner self quietly asked, “why do you need to add extra salt at all?”  And I replied:  Because I want it!! I love that taste and flavor!   So, I reached over and added a “little” of each. 😳  Yep, I did that.  Now, I’m writing about why–amongst other things.

I usually reach for the salt shaker because of habit.  In my younger years, when I exercised a lot, or did a lot of manual work, it wasn’t an issue because I got a chance to sweat a lot.  Which, I think that might be the case for many people.  But now, I have a need to create a new habit.  Paying more attention to what and how I eat.

I’ve actually been moving in that direction for quite a while …since my days in the military.  But, Read More
