Okay. This is part two for whatever day it is. Thursday. So what I said in the previous segment is that until you can tell the difference between what you say and what the machine says, there's no chance that you can change your context. Now, it's a little bit deeper than that. Because ... and that's why without integrity nothing works. It's an integrity issue. Now, we consider integrity in a very pedestrian way. You don't cheat, you don't lie, you keep the Ten Commandments and all that morality issue. But, that is not what integrity really is.
Integrity is that, but it is just the bottom of integrity. The real integrity has something to do with word.

Fear is getting stronger, and you are getting weaker.
In flu season the only things that can keep you safer are staying away from other people, frequent washing of hands, and being already well... high functioning immune system.
Normally this is a picture of me... but not this time around.
I have a weakened immune system, and I went to my exercise class yesterday.
I could even feel when the bug landed in my nose. I immediately sprayed my throat with my Dr. Schulze throat spray: I don't go anywhere without it. And I skirted a full blown flu... I hope.
