Many treasures lie under the sea, but will Alistar find the one that will make ‘The Perfect Birthday Present’ for his mom? Join this adventurous little sea star and his best buddy Barnaby (a blob fish) as they travel through the beautiful deep blue sea, meeting many other creatures of the deep. When the two friends finally stumble upon the perfect present, Alistar needs to make a difficult decision, which only he can make. When he does, the little sea star learns that there are times when it is not the present that is important, but the thought behind it.

For Linda Crowley, the first day of the year had always been set aside to work on new, positive beginnings and 1970 was no different. Her husband and children were by all accounts healthy and no one even considered the terrible thought that tragedy would strike before the day was over, and life as she had known it was gone.

Feeling Small

Sometimes when I watch the news I feel very small and insignificant. I think to myself, “Besides my small vote, what can I do about these big situations?” It’s overwhelming to think of myself on my tiny speck of Earth in the face of all that adversity. What can I do about anything? And then I saw this:

“If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito in the room”

Dalai Lama

Well, that changes things. Whatever I do or say each day in the rooms where I work and live CAN make differences. I don’t need grand gestures. Constant kind words here and there, constant considerate gestures to those around me, and what happens? I become just as effective as that mosquito.

It’s the same with working our food and exercise routines. A healthy fitness journey is not meant to be done with a grand gesture. It’s meant to be as constant as the buzzing of the mosquito. One meal or one workout might not seem like much when the big picture includes 3 workouts a week and 3 healthy meals a day for 52 weeks. But every single little 30 minute workout and each meal make a huge difference in forming the big picture of your healthy lifestyle.

And so, as another day goes by, try applying this to other overwhelming things in your life – be the mosquito.
