I travel and stay in hotels a lot. I have luggage with me and it is put in the back of the hotel van by a driver. I have gotten to know some of the drivers, due to the amount of time I stay in the hotels. I usually tip the driver. I do this even though I have had my suitcase dropped by the driver. Even though my handle was bent by the driver. Even though my small bag was taken apart, just because the driver wanted to do it. My point is I tip the van driver. On one occasion I was leaving the hotel and I witnessed the van driver being rude to one of the guest. When we reached the airport, my bags were taken out and I tipped the driver. I watched this other guest say to the driver, “I don’t have any money for you”. The driver said “what do you need change for”. The guest said, “I don’t need any change”. The driver said “oh you just don’t have any money”. The guest said, “not for you”. That got me to thinking, not all people need to be tipped in all situations. I look at tipping as being polite, I guess in some situations it’s ok to be rude.
To say that there are bad or poor food options, would be – as they say ” a understatement”. The choices of quality food have been shrinking for a number of years. No matter what is happening in the world, folks with limited resources are the most exposed. I think that it is hard to measure true poverty, because the standard of living is different across the world. I don’t think that the world power can head-count people of limited resources (when the numbers come out they are only estimates), and even if they could this does not measure the intensity of poverty at all. One report that I read says that the poorest person will be making $1 a day by the year 2050. This kind of puts things into perspective. In everything that we do and what we think, we think about who we are and what we have. The choices we make are firmly tied to our prospective of ourselves. This is first and foremost. It is imperative to know that we all can make positive choices, but there are some who don’t even think that they have a right to do so. We are all influenced by our environment, be it positive or negative. The catch, or twist is that we must know that we have the power to influence what we see and think. Some people think the way that they have been trained by the world that they see, not fully understanding that what is seen with the necked eye is not necessarily the truth. There must be conscious thought that the world is bigger and holds more ideals than we see. The fact that people with limited resources tend to think that they are powerless speaks volumes to the contrary. Thinking powerless thoughts, when turned 360 degrees to understand that changed thought processes gives greater power to ideals. There will always be those who have and those who don’t have. My prayer is that there will be those who THINK.
Flour in its natural state is full of Vitimans that are good for your body: A, B1, B5, C, E and Vitamin K. BUT in this day most of the flour that people consume is REFINED and this is when it becomes harmful to your body. The consumption of flour along with white sugar should be weighed carefully. Flour is an example of a complex carbohydrate which has the effect of rapid metabolism that can cause spikes in blood sugar levels. Flour has no nutritional value. Because flour has the effect of rapid metabolism, glucose is delivered into your blood stream all at once and your pancreas secrets large quantities of insulin that stimulate glucose absorption into cells and body tissue. Blood sugar levels plummet and you feel hungry, thus creating a cycle of glucose-induced food cravings. As a Natural Health Consulant I am always seeking a better way to eat (and have fun) while nourishing the body.

It is at these times when people can get lost and not receive the help that they might need.

TRIUMPH OVER ALL NEGATIVE SITUATIONS.
Conflict has been and will be until the end of time. Some say that conflict can be healthy, others are not so sure of that. What ever your thoughts on the subject, you will always have it to speak about because it will always be around. What separates the “apples from the oranges” is how conflict is dealt with. Since conflict is considered to be a disagreement between 2 or more people, it should be handled in a way that will teach and train rather than punish and embarrass. Now the question will be asked, how? Even when someone is speaking to another someone who is less than willing to “bend”, consideration must be given to the person, as a person. By speaking louder than someone or getting others to go along with you will not solve conflict. This will only serve to bring bitterness and other embarrassment to the entire group. Jesus has the perfect answer on how to deal with conflict and resolve it.
Quickly – Matthew 5: 23-25 (there will be little to no time for bitterness to set in and productivity can continue)
Face to Face – Matthew 18:15 ( it is better to always go directly to the person and not use a second party)
Get Help – Matthew 18: 16-17 ( if the parties cannot come to a conclusion on their own, involving a second party, someone from the outside is advisable)
We as humans can learn a lot from other humans, even our enemies! The circumstances and situations that we find ourselves in are designed for us to grow.
Often times, at lease more times than most of us want, we are in a position where we must attend a meeting or conference alone. Sometimes sub-consciously we will try to get out of such a situation with a multitude of excuses. Well with this mini-training there is no more need of that. Coming into a room filled with people that we might not know does not have to be difficult. I am a trained Communications Counselor, who has perfected the art of “Assuming the Burden”.
