Home Yoga Stretching Exercise and Babysitting my Grandmother Real Life Motivation
At this moment, the only thing I wanted was to find peace through movement, Yoga, stretching, mediate. I can make this happen, and will, because its what I want and need. Its part of the recovery and healing process. Its LIFE. Knowing when to stop is just as, if not more important as when to start.
Here I am stretching, exercising, while also “babysitting” my 97-year-old grandmother outside to enjoy the beautiful perfect weather. She is in her most peaceful element as well. Outside, family, vegetable garden. To be able to babysit someone in need, watch, talk, care for, check up on, etc., isn’t very difficult, in fact it should come naturally because you are aware of who and what matters. My grandmother could be in the house, monitored by other family members during this beautiful weather, or I can take granny out to enjoy the fresh air, scenery, and watch her grandson doing something I love. Grandmother would be happier outside, and she doesn’t affect my stress reliving exercise session.
I was inspired to make this video because a young man who I talk to was telling me I inspired him to spend more time with his Dad, and he is more happier, calmer, and his relationship with his family is stronger, and now more focused on his school and work, as opposed to being distracted by “friends” and acquaintances you don’t need that will waste your time doing things you shouldn’t be doing (wasting your life on social media top of the list of life wasters).
I frequently get people thanking me for this advice. Spending time on people and things that have meaning to you, is joyful. Family, friends, career, hobbies, interests that fill your life with happiness and progress is where you need to be. Spending time on people and things that waste your life and destroys you. Fake friends, job you hate, toxic people, alcohol, drugs to name a few is what I call “chaos” and destroys you. Anyone that gives you “advice” to watch every single video, read every post, eat junk food, spending time with people and things that not only don’t matter, but ruin and destroy you.
What you need in life is to surround yourself with love, passions, joy. That’s what I’m doing here, exercising, meditating, while enjoying the company of my 97-year-old grandmother and my fresh vegetable garden. Life is good 😊
