Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
Standing here in front of me, broken as you think you are.
A bird who doesn’t know they can fly.
I haven’t healed all of my imperfections yet, you say. I still need to grow.
What you don’t realize is that I already see you. I know who you are.
Your eyes shine so brightly.
Your heart literally glows.
You don’t always see your own potential. Or know all the great things you will be.
But I do.
And I couldn’t love…Continue
Did you know that underneath your pretty paper, there is a gift?
It is true. We all have a gift. We all ARE a gift!
Where is yours? Are you sharing it with the world? We want to see it!!! We need it!!!
Sure your ribbons and bows are nice to look at, but the best part is underneath all that; the part that is INSIDE!
Every, single one of us has a wonderful, unique and precious present! We came here to open it! To share it!
We are all a little…Continue
Seriously, though. SMILE!
Did you know that smiling is GOOD FOR YOU?
Whether you are feeling it or not, smiling can actually trick your brain into thinking that you are HAPPY! Don’t believe me? Try it when you are feeling grumpy! You might feel weird for a second but wait for it! You will start to feel lighter and you may…Continue
When your life calls you and asks you to live it, what will YOU say?
Will you say “NO” and crawl back under the covers?
Will you keep hiding in the corner?
Will you continue to hang your head and feel unworthy?
Will you let the FEAR stop you?
I say YES to life! I choose to live my life. I choose to start RIGHT…Continue
Hi guys :)
I ate lots of raw food yesterday--strawberries, blueberries, bananas, my breakfast of cucumber, zucchini, and sunflower seed dip that I showed you guys, watermelon, zucchini pasta--we'll get to that part in a second. It was pretty awesome and I enjoyed it all. It wasn't a 100 percent raw day but there was still quite a lot of raw food incorporated.
I texted my boyfriend that I wanted to do something romantic...he'd had a long day of school and work, so in a way I…Continue
So I got B's in my 2 classes that I was most worried about--
And a D+ in the class that was the easiest, that I was least worried about. >.< What happened was, I accidentally missed an exam, which wouldn't have mattered because she drops your lowest test grade, but then when the day came for me to take the final, I felt really ill and was suffering a pretty bad flareup...I could barely move and on top of it was nauseous and headachey and even though I'd studied, I just couldn't…Continue
Finished a paper today!!! WHEW :) Babysat yesterday and worked--working my tail off yesterday...Had four bananas this morning and felt totally slammed in my 3 hour sociology class--dehydrated because I forgot to bring any water and probably needed some more calories.
Got gas, went to the bank, went home...made a dip that was sodium-free and very delicious from cooked sweet potato and avocado and herbs that are sprouting up in the garden...then realized I had no…Continue
I've been having a hard time getting my greens in and mainly because they are either a) so bulky and time-consuming to eat in a salad and b) have such a time consuming and tedious process to put through the juicer. So today I got the best of both worlds--food processed my greens with a little olive oil (mine is garlic-infused--otherwise I recommend adding maybe half a clove of garlic!) and lemon juice and voila! Was so delicious! It was just swiss chard by itself--didn't even need salt.…Continue
I am coming off of my first detox and I have to say the effects are extreme. I am still experiencing a deep cleansing even thought I have been eating my usual diet for the last two days. It was so nice to salt my food again. I did not realize how much I was over salting everything. Now a pinch is just heavenly. I really missed my cacao too. Tonight my desert was a raw cacao mouse that was just terrific. I cannot wait for Rainier cherry season I will love dipping those in that chocolaty…Continue
Goodness me, my emotions have been everywhere...honestly? I am loving it. I learn so much about myself when I am like this. Is that strange? I never ever hear of people actually enjoying their sadness. I think it's beautiful though...you learn so much about yourself, about the stories that have happened to you and why things are the way they are. And lately with this depression I have felt so artistic. Just want to create and create and create. It's way better than feeling monotonous…Continue
I'm enrolled in the upcoming RAW BALANCE 11-week challenge that is starting October 1st, and I've been good the past 2 weeks increasing my green smoothie and overall raw food intake, in preparation.
One thing that has been really hard for me to give up, is COFFEE. I'm down to 2 cups a day, but over the years of using this as the energy-drug of choice to overcome the lethargy from health issues, I've…Continue
Today I am feeling rather down. I know I should go out in the yard to pick dandelion greens--they'll help, but I'm so sore that I haven't been motivated to. I did pick a lot of grapes off of the vine and ate those. I had a cup and a half of cooked dry beans this morning, for my dose of protein, as I knew I probably wouldn't be able to get enough greens in today. Not feeling good or happy. I could go to the grocery store, but my car is almost out of gas and I worry about how much money…Continue
Hello Habby :)
Well, yesterday was a hard day. I'm going to blame myself. Sunflower seeds are not an anti-inflammatory food. If I had had only a little bit of the seed cheeze, I probably would have been fine, but because it took over the overwhelming portion of my calories that day, that put an inbalance between my inflammatory vs. anti-inflammatory foods, and since the inflammatory level was higher than the anti-inflam., my pain levels…Continue
Good morning guys. :)
I am writing here now because I was inspired by a blog that I read about minimalism. The man wakes up as early as 3 am on a busy day to have peace and solitude. During these times, sometimes he writes. Writing seems to center me into that special, more organized, peaceful sector of thinking, so I thought, what a great idea, I think I'll do that at the beginning of my day too. At least today (for lord knows, if I could write at all times, I…Continue
