Maybe it was the start of summer, the heat lending to more cold fresh salad cravings -or the variety of fresh sweet fruit screaming ‘nature’s candy!’. There have been a handful of reasons why I’ve tweaked some personal habits in the last few months, like tea over coffee. One thing I’ve always known from years of having studied and one half year of having parasites, our digestion IS our immune system. This is why the axiom ‘food can heal, food can kill’ is so spot on. It is also a topic I am not shy about discussing. You know when things aren’t working, it effects everything. So yeah, this book Gut, The Inside Story of Our Bodies Most Underrated Organ … Read More

State of Things

Like the previous post hinted at, one extreme or the other: But, I genuinely feel that there are universal truths. The word clich√© wouldn’t exist if we aren’t aloud to make broad strokes or generalizations about life. The word generalization wouldn’t exist or portend our survival if we can’t categorize things happening in our life. The problem is, when we proclaim something or someone definitive, we become personally labelled or pigeon-holed with extremes: racist, homophobe, left wing or right wing, anti-this and that (guns, military, female rights, etc…) One comment or title or protesting sign (generated by emotion more than intellect -let’s be honest) or our daily employment (for survive not passiom): none of this defines us solely. Sure it … Read More

When it Rains, it Pours

Doesn’t everyone know this?! Doesn’t everyone you know, say this?! Usually people are referencing money coming in or dating prospects. I swear. When there is drought, money is tight and no one wants you. When the job(s) are good and the bills are light, it’s like no worries exist. If you aren’t married, and you’re in the dating scene, the options abound and you feel full of yourself. If you are married or focused on one, it’s still an observation that people are ‘on you’, ‘looking at you’, ‘promoting you’ or your work. I would like to believe I am about to torrential rain on this blogging. I frankly don’t care how trivial. One liners even; I just need to … Read More

I sat in meditation every day this past week for the first time since I first tried this practice when i was 8 years old.(a whole other story) It was the only thing I could do to rest my mind and restore my energy, other than the B multi and tablespoon of bee pollen (energy and energy) As I’m officially grossed out from coffee and super grateful to say that. I have wanted to leave coffee for awhile. There are addictions that have held my wellness hostage. (more future stories) The last two weeks have been very heavy. Other than the beauty of elevating our acknowledgement of Pluto and recognizing the existence of another ‘almost’ Earth, we have been facing … Read More

Peace of Mind

Truth: There will always be another path. We are inundated with choices. There will always be someone better looking to date, a ‘better for me’ meal to eat, a cooler place to live or travel. another t.v. show to watch, another book to read, another face product to buy, a nicer car to drive, a guilt regarding how you are spending your time (not calling a friend, not seeing a family member) This existence is inevitable. You have to let this coulda-woulda-shoulda go. Of all things, it is most destructive to your entire life. Mainly, it keeps you from living in the present moment, enjoying the present moment, feeling confident about the decision you made to reach this.present.moment. Yes, the … Read More
