International Day of Friendship

  Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here – Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!

Of all of the important holidays I can tell you about, today seems to be the most important in my book.  It is International Day of Friendship.  The world is filled with too much hate, too many wars, too much prejudice and way too many disagreements.  Today, we should put all of that aside and reach out to each other and say, “Hello friend happy friendship day!”

This is just not a backyard problem or a school playground problem.  This is a worldwide problem.  A problem that needs to come to an end.  Everyone has differences – we wouldn’t be individuals if we didn’t.  But when you look down to it, we all want to be happy and what better way than to get along.

Today let’s make friends with different people, different cultures and different countries.  Extend your hand – or an olive branch – and say hello friend.  Say hello to your neighbor, to the stranger at the market and say hello to a person that you see everyday but you don’t even know their name.  Today is the day to make a friend near and far.

To all of our friends, we at the Hotel Thompson would like to say thank you for being our friend – happy friendship day.  And to those that don’t know us yet, Happy Friendship Day.  May we get to know you better today and in the future!

 Who will YOU say hello friend to today?

Journal to Healthier Living – Week 28

Welcome my friends.  I’m tweaking my weekly journey with my healthier living.  It’s a step in the right direction for sure.  I hope you come along for the ride.  Instead of day-to-day comments, I’m going to post something from my personal journal to share.  Hope you enjoy.  Remember all of us go down this path and we are all in it together ❤


Week of  07/15-07/21/2018 – Week 28

“Dear Journal – Have you ever had a bump in the road snowball?  Things are rolling right along, everything is going fine and then there is a little bump that rolls and rolls and then rolls some more until it finally slaps you hard?  Then you are like WTH, where did that come from? It’s hard not to stop the current good trend you are on to confront this challenge.  Sometimes you want to ignore it and you try.  But then it won’t go away and it constant pursues your mind.  Then there are the time you do up and challenge it.  Then you wonder why you fought it to begin with and go on.  Obstacles are there.  I think it’s all about finding a happy medium without beating the hell out of the challenges and obstacles that get you through life.”

Week of  07/08-07/14/2018 – Week 27

“Dear Journal – Time.  I’ve talked about it before.  We need to breathe and live in the moment.  Weight didn’t come on overnight and weight won’t go off overnight.  When you can accept that and be happy with you, I think you’ve come a long way.  I’m there now.  I’m happy.  With me today and tomorrow.  I work towards a goal but it doesn’t define me.  I define me.  That’s something we all need to grasp.  It’s an amazing place to be.  So for today Diary, be in the present!”

Week of  06/24-06/30/2018 – Week 25

“Dear Journal – Day by day, step by step.  You know what of the things I absolutely hate about trying to eat better?  The constant cooking at home.  Yep, I said it.  The constant cooking.  Don’t get me wrong.  We have to eat… although I keep questioning the hub unit why he has to eat every single day – LOL.  I do have skills in the kitchen.  The hub can vouch for that.  But sometimes… I would rather make things easy and just go out to eat.  Wouldn’t we all?  But life is not easy and right now the ‘quick’ thing can’t be for me.  I have to get my decision making choices down first and then in the future I might be able to make better choices in a restaurant.”

Week of  06/17-06/23/2018 – Week 24

“Dear Journal – “When did life become a hurry?  Everyone seems to be in such a rush.  People flying down the road – they have to be first.  The same person that was behind you has to go around you to be in front.  People are rushing through the stores cutting in front of you and grabbing things.  People constantly talking on their cell phones.  Life needs to slow down.  People need to slow down.  What happened to sitting on the deck just breathing and relaxing?  People are constantly multi-tasking.  I think this week I will slow a bit.  Relax.  Sit and enjoy dinner with the family.  Talk.  Enjoy just being together and not rushing.”

Week of  06/10-06/16/2018 – Week 23

“Dear Journal –  Baby steps.  I’ve been tweaking dinner options this week.  There really are some amazing foods that you can prepare that are totally tasty and the hub unit loves.  Planning is the key though.  I’m trying to do my cooking prep on Sundays for the week.  Then during the week, I pull from already cooked ingredients in the fridge.  It saves time and getting the house hot from actually cooking the first time.  What a time saver this is!  I can’t believe I haven’t tried this earlier.  But like they say, better late than never!”

Week of  06/03-06/09/2018 – Week 22

“Dear Journal – Baby steps.  Do you ever notice that when you gain weight, you don’t realize how quickly it takes.  But when you try to lose weight, it seems like forever?  LOL – But we win in the end.  You just have to take baby steps.  It’s not easy.  In fact, it’s a challenge.  But knowing you have a problem and jumping on it full force is the answer.  Two weeks gone so far and I’m down 7 pounds.  I admit it.  I’ve had a soda here/there.  I know I shouldn’t.  But I’m trying.  That’s the main answer – trying.  Because you know in the end, it doesn’t matter how many times you fail at something.  It’s how many times you get back up and try again <3”
