Thank you so much for stopping by! Time appears to be flying by way too fast and I'm looking to do something exciting with the rest of my life. I'll be starting an online fitness business called "GoBeDo" sometime this year. Be sure and check in. You'll learn about High Interval Training, Yoga, Body weight exercise, Spartan races, Functional training and whole lot more. Real $hit, for Old Timers like me. Why? We only have one shot at a grandiose and fulfilling life. Let's get busy creating one. Remember, it's the start that stops most people. The last thing I want to take to my grave is "regret!"
Peace/Love and Hugs!

What's the Cost of Being Right?

Hey, it's Marco! Is it better to be right or to be kind? As I see it, there is way too much stress, anger and resentment in the world! Send me your thoughts!

"This is the grave of Spanky O'Day,
He died defending his right of way,
His right was clear, his will was strong
But he is just as dead as if he'd been wrong." Anonymous

Mary Benedet (blogforchange.org) says, "Be kinder than neccessary because everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle. The man/woman that cut you off in line, the waiter/waitress that wasn't so friendly, a family member that always seems to find fault with you, or the miss know it all co-worker.  These are the times in life, that you need to dig deep inside, and exercise kindness, love and patience.
If someone acts in a bad way towards me or others, that just tells me they have a heavy heart, something must be going on in their lives to make them so unhappy, because happy people don't treat people unkindly. They can be dealing with a bad diagnosis, or an abusive spouse, or just feeling sad and lonely, there are so many things that can make a person unhappy. Choosing to be angry with them, will not benefit anyone, all it will do is fill your day with negative energy.  Going out of your way to say something kind, or just passing on a smile, can make all the difference.
What a powerful lesson to learn, how kindness can turn someone's day around with a positive response to their behavior.  If you do this often  it becomes habit, next time your in that same situation in life, a red flag will go up, you will be reminded of the positive way to respond .  You will feel so much better you learned how to react in a positive way.  Thanks Mary!
