A philosophy professor stood before his class with some items on the table in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with rocks, about 2 inches in diameter.
He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.
So the professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles, of course, rolled into the open areas between the rocks.
He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.
The professor picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else.
He then asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with a unanimous “Yes.” “Now,” said the professor, “I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life health, and fitness.
The rocks are the important things – your family, your partner, your health, your children – things that if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full.
The pebbles are the other things that matter – like your job, your house, your car.
The sand is everything else. The small stuff.” “If you put the sand into the jar first,” he continued “there is no room for the pebbles or the rocks. The same goes for your life.
If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are important to you. Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children. Take your partner out dancing. There will always be time to go to work, clean the house, give a dinner party and fix the disposal.
Take care of the rocks first – the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.” Priorities people.
Just covered myself in coconut oil lol. Maybe not covered my self but I used some.
My friend @timothyshieff old me you shouldn’t put anything on your body you wouldn’t put in your mouth.
Your skin absorbs everything it touches.
The amount of creams and lotions I used to cover myself in, these gave me spots as my skin couldn’t breathe. In fact they were similar to the spots I used to get when I was in the army and had to use camouflage cream. Think thick liquid foundation mixed with melted chocolate, maybe this applies to make-up too, I have no idea as I don’t wear cam cream anymore :) (Borat voice) Great success!
One day I looked at the ingredients. (I have pictured the ingredients label on a product, from a major skin cream company.) What the hell is all that stuff?
If you don’t recognise it your body won’t either.
I now use different oils, coconut, olive, avocado, almond oil.
At first I thought it would make my skin greasy but it doesn’t when applied in moderation.
You can cook with all these oils, just don’t rinse them before you dress your salad.
Anyway I don’t get spots anymore.
Be careful what you are putting on your skin, think first, would I put that in my mouth? If the answer is no then leave it on the shelf.

Never thought about that one! Very interesting!
Say no to Gmos!
Our bodies are made up of skin, muscle, bones and organs.
The organs are made of tissue, and those tissues are made of cells.
So in essence we are just millions of cells, but those cells die out everyday, and have to be replaced everyday.
So how do we replace them?
How do we build new cells?
The raw materials come from only one place, what we put in our mouths.
If we put healthy nutritious food in our mouths we can make healthy cells.
If we put bad food in our bodies, then we have raw materials that will make inferior cells, or sick cells that can make us sick.
If you want to perform sh*t then eat sh*t, but don’t feed rubbish food to your kids. Your slackness could make your kids unhealthy or sick.
Real food doesn’t need advertising. #famfoods

I just can’t reblog this enough. If I filled up my tumblr with just this it wouldn’t be enough. Most of all I wish I could tell my immediate family about this because they perpetuate me growing out of creativity -.-

Why do I succeed?
I succeed because I am willing to do the things you are not.
I will fight against the odds.
I will sacrifice.
I am not shackled by fear, insecurity or doubt.
I feel those emotions, drink them in and swallow them away to nothingness.
I am motivated by accomplishment not by pride, pride consumes the weak, kills their heart from within.
If I fall I will get up.
If I am beaten I will return.
I will never stop getting better.
I will never give up…ever.
That is why I succeed.
If you don’t like where you are, change it, you are not a tree.
You don’t have to be great to start but you have to start to be great.
