“At dawn, when you have trouble getting out of bed, tell yourself: “I have to go to work — as a human being. What do I have to complain of, if I’m going to do what I was born for — the things I was brought into the world to do? Or is this what I was created for? To huddle under the blankets and stay warm?”
So you were born to feel “nice”? Instead of doing things and experiencing them? Don’t you see the plants, the birds, the ants and spiders and bees going about their individual tasks, putting the world in order, as best they can? And you’re not willing to do your job as a human being? Why aren’t you running to do what your nature demands?
You don’t love yourself enough. Or you’d love your nature too, and what it demands of you.” – Marcus Aurelius, “Meditations”
Tonight I was reading “Own the Day, Own Your Life” by Aubrey Marcus. He was discussing the importance of starting your day with good clean water not coffee fist. One of the items he recommend was local free spring water….
He recommends the site: Find A Spring
I just checked it out and there is a free local spring near me! If you know of others not listed, they have an option for you to add springs.

is asking for thank you cards and letters to give to local veterans during their upcoming flight to Washington, D.C.
The nonprofit organization was created to honor World War II, Korean and Vietnam War veterans from Indiana by transporting them to the nation’s capital to visit the memorials dedicated to their service and sacrifices.
On their trip home, veterans receive a packet of letters, drawings and more to enjoy. This is a simple, meaningful way to thank them for all they have done to protect our freedoms.
Please send cards and letters in by May 18 to:
Indy Honor Flight
P.O. Box 10
Plainfield, IN 46168
If you, a family member or friend is interested in being a part of this experience, please have the veteran complete an application here. For other volunteering opportunities, click here.

Insuring Your Small Business
Whether you’re a cat person or a dog person, there’s no doubt that dogs are the costlier pet. Their diet and grooming needs, for example, vastly outweigh those of cats.
Then there are visits to the veterinarian. Just like their human counterparts, cats need routine medical attention. Whether they accidentally ingested something they shouldn’t have or are in serious pain, the costs are sure to make a dent in any wallet.
“The majority of medical conditions on the top 10 list can be successfully managed if treated promptly by a veterinarian. Early detection can prevent many of these issues from becoming severe,” said Carol McConnell, vice president and chief veterinary officer for Nationwide, in a statement.
For current and future dog owners, being prepared can help when the unexpected occurs. With this in mind, here are the top 10 most common medical conditions for dogs, based on Nationwide data.
- Skin allergies
- Ear infection
- Non-cancerous skin mass
- Skin infection
- Joint soreness
- Dental disease
- Urinary tract disease
- Anal glands impacted, infected or abscessed
