HARTENBOS PARKRUN

 

Hartenbos parkrun is komende naweek twee jaar deel van ons gemeenskap!

Parkrun het sy ontstaan gevind in 2004 deur ʼn Suid-Afrikaner in Bushy Park, London. Paul Sinton-Hewitt het saam met ʼn paar vriende na ʼn besering begin om sosiaal te hardloop waar hulle tye neem en mekaar motiveer. ʼn Paar jaar later het Bruce Fordyce parkrun aan Suid-Afrika bekend gestel.

Parkrun is ʼn weeklikse, gratis 5km, draf of stap vir die hele gesin, ongeag jou fiksheidsvlak. Altyd om 8vm. Dit is ʼn gebeurtenis wat weekliks onderhou word deur vrywilligers en so die gemeenskap fiks en gesond hou. Parkrun sluit niemand uit nie; van die 88-jarige oom met sy kierie, die tiener wat weekliks ʼn rekord verbeter, mamma en pappa wat vir kleinding bring om saam met ouma te kom stap tot die persoon wat nie in staat is om fisies, aktief te kan deelneem nie. Enige persoon kan deelneem, met of sonder vooraf gratis registrasie (registreer by: www.parkrun.co.za/register)

Vir die afgelope twee jaar is parkrun op baie gesinne se naweek doenlysie. Die 11de Maart is Hartenbos parkrun 2 jaar oud!! Kom geniet die parkrun saam met ons, of jy nou stap, draf, kruip of net kom saam lag en ondersteun.

Verjaardag tema: Hoe bonter, hoe beter!
Datum: 11de Maart (weekliks)
Tyd: 8vm (arriveer so 7:45vm)

Tydens ons 20ste verjaardagviering in 2014, het ‘n groot aantal van ons duisende lojale kliënte, wat vir langer as 20 jaar ons ondersteun het, sertifikate van erkenning asook klein geskenkies ontvang. As ‘n teken van ons dankbaarheid was dit lekker om hulle hiermee te bederf en ons hoop om dit binnekort weer te kan doen!

Life with Elsa

 

Why am I a chicken?

Many people grow up believing they are just average. This is something they can inherit from their parents or it can be something they experienced over and over again until it formed part of their belief system.

The problem with this deeply rooted belief;
– it can start to take control of your body meaning you catch a cold or fall into the average category of people who experience various of sicknesses. It is also possible to keep you from having the body you dream of.
– it can take control of your destiny making sure that you always just fall short of what it is you really want
– it can influence the way people treat you always showing less respect than you actually deserve.
– it can contradict any blessing that might show that you are more than average.

What’s the science behind this?
Your unconscious mind has 95% power over your life while the conscious mind only has 5% power. Yes, we have been taught to only focus and count on the conscious mind (what we see, hear and what our common knowledge tells us) but, the power lies in our unconscious minds. The key is to access it.
Let’s use a large cargo ship as a metaphor. The captain (Conscious mind) is in the bridge of the ship. The cargo, crew and the actual engines are at the bottom of the ship. (Unconscious mind)
Now, the captain uses the controls and steering wheel (conscious mind = will power) to do the things he wants. If these things contradict what the rest of the crew, engines and cargo believe,(unconscious mind = negative or limiting beliefs), the cargo will simply shift – leaving the ship in the middle of the position where the captain wanted it to be and where it was. Thus, at an average point.
Where is your ship heading? Are you ending up at average point or at your destination?
Our beliefs operate as a self-fulfilling prophecy, whether it is good or bad.
As soon as we get rid of negative and limiting beliefs, our captain will be able to steer the ship to the exact spot we dream of in EVERY area of our life!
Stop believing you are a chicken and start believing you are that eagle soaring high… That’s what you were born to be!

Rhino tracking is offered on Wednesdays and on this experience guests track rhino and contribute to the Rainbow Rhino Initiative by monitoring and following these animals.

A friendly reminder of our meetings every second Thursday of the month at the Eden Country Inn, Little Brak River at 7pm.

The 2017 Sky Guide : On the 10th, Comet 2P/Encke is at perihelion (closest @ 0.34 astronomical units). Two more comets: 176P/Linear (12th) and 172P/Yeong (13th) are also at perihelion – all quite difficult to find.

Jupiter is near the Moon on 14th, EARTH HOUR (when you switch off all lights!) is from 8.30 to 9.30 p.m. on the 25th. New Moon is on the 28th at 04h57m. Mars is near the Moon on the 30th.
No worthwhile meteor showers this month.

DEFINITION: Astronomical Unit : A unit of length, equal to 149 597 871 kilometers, which is the mean distance between the Earth and the Sun.

See you all there!
