Love vs. Hate

Jim grabbed his brother from behind 
and wrestled him to the floor.
"Give it back!" Jim shouted.
"What's going on?" their mother shouted.
Their father walked in and
separated the two boys.
"Will you boys ever stop fighting?"
The parents decided their boys will 
spend a weekend with Grandpa.
Jim and Tim followed Grandpa to the car.
"Where are we going?" Jim asked Grandpa.
"We're going to visit the zoo," Grandpa announced.
They stopped near a large gated fence,
where the lions roamed the field.
Grandpa sat both boys down,
and proceeded to tell them a story.
There were two lions that fought over everything.
One lion was full of anger
and the other lion was full of love.
"Which lion do you think will win
this fight?" Grandpa asked the boys.
The two brothers looked at each other,
and shook their heads. "we don't know."
"The one you feed," Grandpa replied.
Grandpa leaned over and whispered to them.
"The same fight is going inside of you."
"Which one do you feed?"

Let's Get Fit

So are you ready to get fit?
Do you have the time to commit?
Exercise is easy, it can be done.
It's a work out and it's really fun.
If you stumble now and then.
Just get back up and start again.
Choose one exercise that suits you.
There is so much that you can do.
Aerobics, ballet and dance too.
Even a treadmill to name a few.
Go for a jog or get on a bike.
Play some tennis or go on a hike.
You don't have to run a race.
You can go at your own pace.
Stretch a little bit, followed by a swim.
You can use weights to stay trim.
So head to the gym and kick up your feet. 
You can do this with rhythm and beat.
They tell you it's healthy and fun.
Whether you walk, jog or run.
You can exercise an hour each day.
Bring along a friend and start today.
No more excuses, it's time to commit.
Set yourself a goal and just do it!
