Quote of the Day
July 11th is Cheer Up The Lonely Day!
There are many people in this world that are alone. It's possible to be alone and not feel lonely, while it is also possible to be in a crowd and feel lonely.
After 15 years of marriage, I divorced and have remained single by choice. I actually don't mind living alone, as I have many hobbies and four websites that I own that need constant updating and new pages. In December of 2021, I purchased 3.66 acres of raw land that I will be building a small house and planting a huge organic orchard and organic veggie/herb garden with tons of pollinator flowers, among many other things! I keep myself busy!
I have family and friends that I can visit with if I need to be around others, or break up my day. Social Media has made it easy to reconnect with friends from the past, and make new online friends with similar interests. I've met a bunch of my online friends in person already.
I try to get out every day and walk around the neighborhood, or since I purchased my property, I do a lot of walking around it. I've already met six of my new neighbors. I'm an introvert, but I'm making more of an effort these days to connect with others. Simple things like a smile and saying hello to those you pass along the way can brighten someone's day. I'm always amazed when you get no response back from people...this seems so easy!
Loneliness causes people to feel empty, alone, and unwanted. Everyone can reach out to others - start with your family members! A phone call, a card in the mail, just let them know that you are thinking about them and love them! Brighten someone else's day!
Recipe of the Day or a Healthy Diet Habit Tip of the Day
July 11th is National Blueberry Muffin Day!
These healthy blueberry muffins include egg whites, low fat buttermilk, whole wheat pastry flour, flax seeds, blueberries, and nuts. Healthy recipes should include healthy ingredients! Rather than doing without the foods that you love, simply modify them and upgrade the ingredients. This bread recipe is modified to include less fat, less sugar, no egg yolks, and whole wheat pastry flour, rather than white flour! You can eat them without guilt. Pair one with an egg and sliced fruit for a healthy breakfast.
