What My Grammy Taught Me!
The greatest generation still amazes me, and teaches a powerful lesson: keep learning to stay young!
This weekend, I went to visit my Grandparents (who my children lovingly call Grammy and Popeye). They were preparing for their winter migration to Florida, and we were saying goodbye. As we chatted, she was asking for tips on how to use Facebook better. We email, talk by cell phone, and she loves getting the grandkid pics on Facebook.
That got me to thinking... how amazing her life has been. What all she has seen, and how instead of refusing to learn and grow and change, she embraces it. She and Grandpa still travel, they live independently, and they are very tech savvy- Grandpa LOVES his iPad!! They've seen the Great Depression, Grandpa served in WWII, Hippies, Watergate, Star Wars, the birth of PCs, Internet, and still, they grow and change with the times! They raised five boys and planted numerous churches, loved each other through it all, and still have a smile on their faces! The lesson here for us all is: Don't be afraid to try new things to have a better life. Grammy will try about anything, even if she doesn't always like it. (She was not fond of my green smoothies!) We even got her subscribed to my blog! (Which I hope she does like.)
So what do you need to embrace in your life to improve yourself, your health, or your family? Maybe it's time to start a new supplement regimen to improve your health (try the Core Nutrition Pack if you want to press the easy button). Maybe now that the kids are in school, you'd like to lose some weight. Maybe your health is great, but you want to give your spouse or kids one special date night a week. Maybe it's time to have a good talk with God about your life. Whatever it is, don't be afraid to embrace some changes and get to a new goal... and NEVER, EVER stop setting goals! They're what keep my Grammy and Popeye so young and wonderful!
