Last night I had the opportunity to go see a movie with my daughter called, "The Heart of Nuba." It is an AMAZING story of a small town boy who grows up to be a HERO. Dr. Tom Catena grew up in my hometown of Amsterdam, NY. He is the only doctor at the Mother of Mercy Hospital in Gidel in the Nuba Mountains of Sudan. He has been the practicing medicine there since 2008. He did not set out on this path, but changed direction after graduating from Brown University. After he graduated with a bachelors in engineering, he realized his true calling was to study medicine. In order to afford medical school he joined the Navy. He attributes his perseverance to his football background and to his Catholic upbringing. His faith lead him to give up all of his worldly possessions to serve others unconditionally. He lives in a small hut. His father said, "he has nothing and yet he has everything." In a place that is religiously diverse they are amazingly united in they determination to survive the war. Dr. Tom says that, "every life holds the promise of hope," and believes in the power of human touch. Every life matters and everyone has a purpose in life and Dr. Tom has found his. You can find out much more at the website https://theheartofnuba.com/
I will leave you with this beautiful song and music video for the movie, "Bloom."
"Life holds a promise. Love sets it free. Hope grows when we are blooming where we're meant to be."
ArtsyBE is the act of doing something and being artsy. ArtsyBE is a state of mind, body and soul. Being artsy is findng that place, that thing that frees you and gives you peace. ArtsyBE gives you a peace that you enjoy separate from the everyday life. I started this blog to MOTIVATE MYSELF, if anyone finds this helpful then it was worth it.

Ups and Downs
Ups and Downs of dieting. Yuck I really don't like that "D" word, dieting. I am not on a diet. I have made a lifestyle change and I really do like it. As they say it looks easier than it is. It's hard to change your lifestyle, but I know it will be so worth it. I can't believe I have been doing this for 60 days. I have lost 15 lbs. But the last 3-4 lbs keep going on again and off again. So after a week of being on the run with the family every day I am getting back on track this week. I have a goal to get more off before my physical next week. I'm not going to let these ups and downs of dieting bring me down.
