Give Us This Day

You want religion? Here's religion.

When we're born, we're all as whole and as perfect as we're ever going to be. From that day on, we start to break, in our bodies, our minds and our souls. We patch ourselves up and go on the best we can, only to get more broken and more patches.

We all dream of becoming whole and perfect again.

It never happens. Broken and patched is as good as it gets. Some people think that someone or something can make them whole. It doesn't happen.

However fucked up you are, that's as good as it's likely to get. If you don't watch out, you're likely to get even more fucked up.

Live it up. Tomorrow you'll be one day closer to the end of your life.

The secret to happiness is to be satisfied with the way you are right now.

Good sense, couldn't have said it better myself.

You know, when I left the navy, I was diagnosed with something called diverticulitis. I completely turned that around and have never had any more attacks or problems - much thanks to a wonderful thing called flaxseed meal. I eat a bowl of that with oatmeal each morning. Daily dose is supposed to be around 2 tablespoons but I've upped that to 1/3 cup a day and have never had a single problem in over nine years.

The future is unwritten. I try to live for the moment, but it is hard.

I have been looking into flaxseed meal for type 2 diabetes also. Thanks for the jolt.

It can get depressing but you got to consider the alternatives.
