About dray0308

I graduated from UNC Charlotte with a BA in Religious History with an emphasis in early Christian origins. I have spent my adult life as an amateur philosopher and avid student of the academic side of Christian origins. My interest in philosophy has led me to observing human behavior, especially as it relates to personal fulfillment and achieving success. It is my mission to help dreamers understand how to become doers. By understanding a few universal principles those that wish, hope, dream, but never achieve can find the personal success they have always wanted.

Looking back… Day 9.

If there is something I wish I’ll keep until the day I leave this world, it is the gift of keeping in touch with my inner child.

I like being impressed by little things. I like seeing the beauty in little things. I like feeling the magic in little things.

As I said in a previous post, I am not super excited about Holiday Season this year. My Xmas cards sending is an attempt at bringing back the febrility of Christmas in my life. As someone mentionned in my email inbox, it will be time consuming, but I am eager to start sending my cards aways. I hope they will make a difference. We’ll see if they do.

*Fingers crossed*

Today, we went shopping, and there was a Santa Claus village in the mall. I didn’t pay much attention to it, but when we got to Canadian Tire (a Canadian…

Blogging Chums Award

We Hold These Truths To Be Self-Evident

Suziland has nominated We Hold These Truths To Be Self-Evident/blackbutterfly7 for the Blogging Chums Award.  Thanks so much!   This means so much to me because I’ve not been able to get around to all the blogs I follow, much less participate in a manner that I used to and enjoyed.  It is inspiring to know that I’m still considered a blogging chum.

The “logo” for this award was created by Robert’s blogging chum Dressing To Impress  and the award was named by beams19 of Crave the Unknown. Robert created the “rules”.

The Blogging Chums Award is given to particularly brilliant bloggers who are really providing something special to the community, either through their writing or the way they engage with other people: they’re just brilliant!

Dr.Myles Munroe: Protect Your Character

juantetcts

Today’s share is on traits necessary to transform you into a person of value, a concept which seems to be heading into extinction like the dinosaurs. I was fascinated by the origin of the word character, as well as how status and/or income does not raise the true net worth of an individual. The major determining factor is if you ARE who you SAY you are, no matter WHERE you are.

Can flaxseed lower cholesterol? – Tufts

One Regular Guy Writing about Food, Exercise and Living Past 100

I have tried for years to cut down my reliance on protein from red meat. Nuts and seeds are often suggested as an alternative source that I have used. So, I was glad to run across this item.

Q. Are flaxseed crackers nutritious, and can they help lower cholesterol? Is the question asked by the Tufts Health and Nutrition Letter.

th.jpegA. Nicola McKeown, PhD, a scientist at the HNRCA, answers: “Like other seeds, flaxseeds provide both soluble and insoluble fiber, and they are also a rich source of alpha-linolenic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid which may have anti-inflammatory properties.”

“It is the soluble fiber inside the seed that helps lower cholesterol. Processing the seeds by grinding or soaking in water makes the fiber easier to digest and helps release nutrients for absorption. The insoluble fiber in the tough outer coating of the seed helps create stool mass and plays an…
