There are many “you must read this book” lists on the internet. Each list promising that this or that book will change your life forever.

There are many powerful books out there. Selfhelp, business, or health books are all very helpful. You get better ones but also the not so hunky-dory ones! The most popular books ever written start with the Bible on top and then possibly the Quran.

Some other books in the top 10 are Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes, Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien, and a more modern-day book…

We tend to put health in compartments. I exercise now but have a bad sleeping routine. Eat healthy but live in a toxic environment. As if we can somehow trick our body’s to stay healthy. Exercise like hell, but eat and drink what you want to.

Or eat perfectly right but operate under enormous stress at work which you, in any case, don’t like. This has a humungous influence on your heart health and overall health.

You only have one heart and if it stops beating, well…

The Concept

It sounds so easy. I hear the words the sentences and the arguments in my head. It makes perfect sense. I dream of how easy it's going to be putting it all on a screen. This one is going to be so easy. But what!! Huh!

Then it starts. Words fall on the screen but they don’t seem to gel. Sentences become too long. Words are difficult to come by. Being a native Afrikaans speaker I rarely use English. There is a saying “I only use…

Yes! there is an ectopic heartbeat vagus nerve palpitations connection and there may be relief for you and me. With so many issues the most important thing is to get MORE INFO!

What are ectopic heartbeats? In short, it is extra or skipped heartbeats, and I did a short post on ECTOPIC HEARTBEATS, PVC AND PAC BEATS to try and explain it in my own words. It can also be explained as a heartbeat that is in the “wrong place”. That means, too early in the heart rhythm cycle.

Your superhero status may be in question. You have not taken off yet. This learning about your superpower is taking longer than you anticipated. You thought your words would fly off the screen and into people's heart. Creating emotions, memories, and all those goosebumps feelings.

Most superheroes we meet are on the up. Thor was preparing to ascend to the throne. Iron man was going to demonstrate the “Jericho” missile and Wonderwoman is living life on the island of Themyscira with the other Amazons.

There are only a few persons who truly really care about your life. Many people claim to care about your life and what's happening to you. On the one hand, they either are not willing to sacrifice to help you, or not able to help you.

Care is described as.

“The provision of what is necessary for the health, welfare, maintenance, and protection of someone or something.”

Do not think that the world will run after you and ask if you’re OK. It’s everybody for themselves. There are pockets of communities looking after…

Only you can speak the words on your lips. Sounds familiar? It’s in a song. My version will be “Only you can write the words in your heart”. This statement is huge! How many of you are there in this world? Wait a minute I’m still counting. Finished. It's one it's only you.

There are about 8 billion people in the world. We are all different, even twins have their differences. Something to remind you is your fingerprints. They use it in court to show that you were on a crime scene.

Most sources agree that the Bible is the best-selling book of all time. It is estimated that about 5 billion copies have been sold and distributed.

The Guinness World Records site ranks the Bible as the best-selling book of all time. It’s strange that many other sites do not mention the Bible at all. Sometimes these sites will mention that it is number one, but then their list starts with another book.

That aside, we can confidently say the Bible is the best book ever. People want it all over the world. …

This fear thing is annoying. It gets in the way of living. So many things to fear so little time to do it.

You see fear as the enemy and want to fight it as hard as you can. So many of us have it hanging over us. Lurking not far away. For some a constant companion, an irritating troublesome enemy.

“We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.”― Plato

I’m not an anti goal setter. I set goals all the time, but that is not always what gets me through the grind. I need a daily thing. You can call it habits, ok we all call it habits.

Goals inspire us. They make you feel good about yourself. You do all those nice stuff like visualization meditating on it and so on. For how long?

First forget inspiration. Habit is more dependable. Habit will sustain you whether you’re inspired or not. -Octavia Butler
