Never Stop that Good Winding…

wind-up

IMG1433AThis old Soviet alarm clock that I have to remember to wind once a day and every few days adjust the time by a few minutes, is a reminder to me. A reminder that we just keep going and if we do not wind ourselves up everyday, we stop running and that is that…

The idea I realized is to figure out how to keep winding your clock. Just like the Old Soviet Clock, that has to be wound daily by you, your body has to be wound also…

Most of the time we have to be wound daily like the clock has to be. When we reach the point of multiple winding a day, we start having issues and feeling like life has become rough and unfair. Sometimes we do not have enough time at our disposal and figure out why we are winding down so quick. Sometimes we just don’t care if we end up on a scrape heap of life, but I have figured out that we all can wind our springs and that makes life better…

Not many years ago, I reached the point of having to wind my clock inside of me every few hours. It was rough and it was certain death, if I did not figure out how to stabilize myself. I had worked in high pressure for so many years, that I had almost put myself in the grave. I came to Russia and discovered the Russian way of life…

A typical Russian does not look at money as a good thing! A typical Russian values their free time more than extra money! A typical Russian does not value material items to any great extent! A typical Russian……….

I have learned to be a Russian; E.g. – Right now the sun has come up and the sky is clear. I took Boza out and we stood in the sunshine. We absorbed the feeble rays as they basked us. The warmer temperatures last night had gone away with Sveta on the train and it was -17 this morning. But those sun rays were better than any Bahama in the world…

I rewound my clock in the sun’s rays and I feel good. The value of those few moments of sun rays is more valuable than any amount of money in the world. Rich is not in your net worth, Rich is in your heart, soul and mind…

I understand now in my life that every time I drove myself to be number one and every time I ignored the family, ignored my health and ignore life in general. I was slicing a little bit of life off, and that was life that would never be found or enjoyed again. Life, Health and happiness is worth more than money, material items and power; any day of the week…

I live in this Tiny Russian Village and I am winding my clock everyday. This weekend, I checked my blood pressure as I do many times a week. I check my heart rate, as I do many times a week. My blood pressure is 106/65 and my resting heart rate is 65 now. This is compared to several years ago of 145/102 and a resting heart rate of 95+…

I am in better shape than I have been since a teenager and that is impossible to recover those days. I am losing weight, I am building muscle again and I am garnering the ability to stop so much damn medication. Since I have come to Russia, I have stopped taking drugs that were pushed on me in America by M.D.’s; 6 types of anti-depressants, and at least 6 types of variants of heart medications. Sveta has stood by my side and helped me to break everyone of these addictions. I even stopped smoking when I came to Russia and drinking alcohol is non existent anymore…

Therefore, like the Old Soviet Clock; we can never stop winding ourselves. Winding ourselves with good life and good things. The day we try to wind ourselves up with stress, power, games, deceit, pain, ignorance and many other items in life. That is when our clock will wind down and wind down faster and faster everyday…

The world is full of people whose clocks have wound down and they go through the motions of life, but never see life for what it is and that is why we do not value life all over the world as important. We are even unable to see our life as important…

Have a nice day and catch a sunbeam and wind your clock inside your heart. You deserve it…
