Joey L. Dowdy’s “WHEN JOY MEETS HEALTH”

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 23, 2013 by JJgroove01

A Love Story

One day joy and health, who both had heard so much about each other, finally met in passing. Yet when they met, they realized there was an instant attraction. So joy said, “Health, it’s so nice to meet you.” And then health responded by saying, “Joy, it’s my pleasure; it’s so nice to meet you too.”

Next they both said simultaneously, “I’ve heard so much about you. We must meet again soon.” So they did. However, this time they arranged to keep meeting again, again, and again. Until one day they discovered they simply couldn’t live without each other. They were a perfect match, and an inseparable bond.

Final Outcome: They lived happily ever after.

Well, That’s What Happens “When Joy Meets Health.”

Joey L. Dowdy’s “Movement is, LIFE!”

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 20, 2011 by JJgroove01

Movement for our bodies is as equal to what gasoline is
for our vehicles. It gives us energy, gusto, and “Go Power;” it’s the source
that began our very existence. “IT IS LIFE!”

Joey L. Dowdy’s “Abuse Breaks Its Grip!”

Posted in inspiration, Self fulfillment, Uncategorized, Wellness with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 23, 2011 by JJgroove01

This couldn’t be a more talked about and controversial subject matter right now. You know this is BIG , BIG, BIG news when celeb’s like Rihanna, Oprah, Tyler Perry, Monique and “So You Think You Can Dance” judge Mary Murphy are all talking about domestic violence and their abusive past.

 “Precious” the Oscar winning movie directed by Lee Daniels helped shed some light upon a much needed to be discussed dark subject. It depicts the trials and tribulations of an obese young teenage African American female, Gabourey Sidible, who had dreams of becoming a leading girl in music videos. Yet she found her dreams were quickly shattered by her demeaning mentally, physically, abusive mother, and sexually abusive father.”
It’s a shocking revelation that far too many people experience on a daily bases. I too know first hand about the twists, and turns, of domestic violence’s gripping hold from my own personal experiences. I remember as a child being repeatedly molested by an older person who forced me to do things that violated my innocence. I too like so many others were afraid to speak out in fear of what others would think about me. I was afraid they wouldn’t believe me.” Actually, I was so confused, and I thought maybe I caused it; I even wondered if there was something wrong with me. I didn’t know who to turn to, or where to go, so sadly, I just buried my feelings. I never talked about it; I just wore the pain.

Joey L. Dowdy’s “To Motivate Yourself!”

Posted in Groove, inspiration, motivation, Self fulfillment, Self Improvement, Wellness with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 14, 2010 by JJgroove01

      Keep On!  Keeping On!

Self Starting is the first step to achievement and Success. And a self starter’s position is not to be taken lightly; it has been said they separate the winners from the whiners, the stiff from the flexible, the complainers from the complimentary, the doer’s from the do not, and the have’s from the have not.

Why? Because you can’t just sit around wishing or waiting for some one to tap you on the shoulder and whisper into your ear saying, “Hello my name is wishful thinking and I am sent here to make all your dreams come true.” And as good as it may sound we all know that it’s not likely to happen unless, “You Make It Happen.”

 Sure! I know that during these challenging economically times, especially when there have been some set backs, it can be difficult finding the motivation for moving ahead. But what ever you do, “don’t give up.” You must keep holding and know that NO MATTER how tough the situation looks it is only temporary; and it too shall pass. Don’t worry.

What may seem like a set back could actually end up being an insight into helping you propel forward. However, the secret or key ingredient is keeping a positive mind set no matter how tough things get by knowing that, “What follows the darkness is the light.” Keep believing and everything will work out for your good.  How?

Be encouraged and know that you have the power to change things around simply by shifting your gears (body, mind, spirit) into motion. Yes! Your action steps will initiate the process that will help you develop a strategy and a plan which will give you the upper hand, or better that, the winning hand.

That’s what being a self starter is about. It’s about you taking the reigns and control over your life. I believe if you don’t take charge of your own life and leave it in the hands of someone else take, you might not like the results. There’s an ancient proverb that says, “The journey of a thousand miles starts easily; all you need to do is just take one step forward.”

“Don’t Just Start Your Day Off Right, Keep It Right.” Life doesn’t always present us with our ideal situation in which to live it, and or to pursue our dreams.  But that’s where hunger and having a burning desire for success will keep you motivated, and “Moving Forward.”  You know you can’t always rely on situtions, or on other people for your motivation, sometimes you have to do it yourself by “Keeping Yourself Motivated.”

So why let your day be half full with Worries, Anxiety, and Stress when you can make it a complete day full of inspiration by continually feeding your Body, Mind and Soul. Here are seven of my favorite daily affirmations I’ve composed and pulled up just for you. You can refer to them anytime you need a lift, or personal “Life Boost.” These powerful thoughts will surely help you keep your day and life Active, Alive, and Well.

 

“Why Just Go Through The Day, “Get Something From The Day!”

“Whatever, Whenever, However, “Just START MOVING!”

“Work Your Plans, Then Relax, Wait,  And Let Your Plans Work For You!”

‎”It Takes No More Effort to Think Negative Than It Does POSITIVE!”

“Your Body is Your Temple so, Fill It Up With The Finest Yet Build It to Last.”

“It’s Not What You Have, It’s What You Become.”

‎”Having An Idea is Great, However, Taking Action is What Makes It Happen!”

Groove ON!
