If the roots are sick, is not washing the leaves an eye-wash? To fix the roots is not easy, but washing the leaves is dangerous, for it gives the illusion of health-
Before we start on yet another bloviated blog-o-post. Watch this video to get all amped up and tingly inside this morning (or afternoon if you live in Turnipshire):
Have you ever noticed that our pity of others expresses a negative evaluation of a known bad situation? Last time we checked peeps simply do not like to be pitied or looked down upon as if they are flawed in some sort or another.
Our attitudes towards people who may be overweight or out of shape (What the heck is out of shape anyways? Can someone please explain this to us?!?) is a typical example of pity. Some normal attributes of compassion may be giving a helping hand to those near and dear to us. Pity and compassion are not generated in every case of bad luck, but only when we believe that someone suffers from substantial misfortune.
There is one crucial difference between pity and compassion: It’s simply that compassion involves far greater commitment on your part to contribute any form of substantial help. You may pity a woman for being fat and obese although that does little to help you or the woman. On the other hand … Compassion involves a willingness to roll up your sleeves and to get personally involved in helping out, while pity usually means you could care less. Maybe we can think of pity as being a spectator at the Olympics? Jumping around dolling our pity “yellow cards” out here and there where it is most convenient to us!?!
The whole dang point today (That will be lost in all the pics and silly videos): Our pity revolves around our perceived inferiority of other people. No matter what it may be: Oscar Pistorius running the 400m relay with no legs or Nadzeya Astapchuk (some claim she is too heavy and not womanly like … Ass-Hat peeps.) tossing a shot put around on the field. Compassion peeps … Shines a lovely, bright light on the common equality in humanity (Which is pretty darn cool).
If we told you that the secret to living a healthy engaging life is: Happy Hips and Happy Mind?!? All the peeps reading today would walk away shaking their collective heads in great shame.
On that note: A nice Happy Hips Warm Up and maybe a Swim followed by this series of movements:
Not For Time or AMRAP … Well, 30 Minutes of time at least?!?
10 Hinge Walk Out Perfect Push Ups
3 Perfect Dead Hang Pull Ups
30 Second Hand Stand Hold
Make note of when you started and roll through these movements for 30 minutes or so … No hurry! Perfection!!!
Smile and ENJOY!!!

someone had their wheat-a-bix this morning! tingly! compassion, key to everything.
It took me a bit but I finally found a store that sells Weetabix close by. Some fresh berries and a little Stevia in the raw … Yummy!!! 🙂
tasty wasty! 😀
The dog is cute. I would never have got my dog to do such a thing. Who was also a chocolate lab. Nice post. I wanna go night night!!
Thank you! We had a wonderful beagle who would let you get maybe two biscuits on his head before he went nuts. The patience this lab exhibits is amazing!
OMG! How were you able to read my mind on things I like to see! I like hearts…I put heart stickers on envelopes, and the fists – I like the Hulk…the show, the movie and the angry energy…just funny…especially in Avengers movie where the Hulk punches the other hero to the side. You’re so lucky to be able to travel to England to watch the olympics.
I’m not complaining at all. I’m watching the Blue Jays vs. New York Yankees. Second time watching it at the Rogers Centre. Love the experience – way better than on TV.
Some of the earliest and best memories of my childhood occurred in the old municipal field in Toronto watching the Blue Jays.
Lucky! You are so lucky to have lived in that area…close to watch the game and then the Harbourfront Centre. That area is just wonderful to live in and visit.
Eagerly waiting to watch the game tomorrow. 😀
Couldn’t see the first video but I believe I get the point. The second video is crazy.
