Make sure that you flex your courage muscle daily. That way when you really need it for something really scary it will be highly developed through daily use. Doing something courageous each day means finding something that you’re fearful of and overcoming that fear to do the thing that you wanted to do. It doesn’t have to be a big thing at first, and you’ll want to start off with small things so that you build up your confidence in your ability to be courageous. As your confidence grows, you can take on bigger and bigger things.
“You know the world is going crazy when the best rapper is a white guy, the best golfer is a black guy, the tallest guy in the NBA is Chinese, the Swiss hold the America's Cup, France is accusing the U.S. of arrogance, Germany doesn't want to go to war, and the three most powerful men in America are named "Bush", "Dick", and "Colin." Need I say more?”
Do not think that you can forget about the paying attention to your another half after marriage. You should always care about your love, as it is some kind of work that should be performed for your relationships to be safe from breaking. Yep, only feeling the emotions is not enough, you need to express them! And morning is the perfect time to remind your beautiful wife that she is still sexy, pretty and adorable.
In addition to all these physiological benefits, and likely as a result of them, it seems that smiling may also be a significant predictor of life expectancy. In a 2010 study out of Wayne State University, researchers found that by looking at the intensity of smiles in old photographs, they were able to correlate our facial expressions with longevity. People that had bigger smiles were more likely to have lived to a greater age!
If you have children, or if you have ever been a child, you know that friendships can be hard, and great friendships can be hard to find. Learning to share your favorite toys, taking turns, and saying that you are sorry is all part of the process. As we navigate our way through middle school, we learn more about being a good friend. What it feels like to have a friend stick up for you in a crowd, to hold you a spot at the lunch table, and to tell you when you have something stuck in your braces. Sometimes those first best friends are with you into adulthood, and sometimes our friends change as we grow and also change. We all seek to find that real friend who will be with us through thick and thin. She tells you when you can find a more flattering pair of jeans, help you find the courage to quit a job that you hate going to, and loves you enough to tell you when the boyfriend you are chasing after, is no good for you. How lucky we are if we have found a best friend.
