We All Change and Grow

by admin on January 15, 2015

Conceptual closeup environment photo of hands holding a young plYou know when you feel uncomfortable in your life?  Like something needs to change… Let it.  I believe this is the universe, God, or whatever higher being you believe in trying to tell you something.  If you don’t listen to this feeling, you will simply get it back again in a few months, years, or however long it may take.

Why?  We all need to grow.

And have you ever noticed that when you are in this growth for your own good, resistance seems to come at you from all sides?  Right! We gotta push through, keep going and get to where you are headed.  Just think of this… as babies we grow, learn and eventually become adults, thank goodness!  Can you imagine being stuck as a baby your whole life, or a 2 year old?  no thanx.  Its the same thing with growth as an adult, we must keep growing, learning and eventually become something that we never thought we would be.

Look at your life five years ago, same? different? how do you feel about that?

Growth and change simply will happen, let it.

‘That’ will change your life!

by admin on January 8, 2015

Beautiful girl with leaves on an sunny autumn-day in parkAre you one of those people who keeps looking for ‘that’ thing that WILL change your life? I am… to a point I guess.

Huge on self help books (which have pointed me in the right direction I must say) to learn a quick fix you can do for a month and then your life will be great forever?  Now don’t get me wrong, looking to improve your life through You is great and we should… not counting on others to do it, right.  I think the fault lies in the fact that we want change to happen now!  like I’ll give you a month and then it should be done!  No, am I the only one?

I have always be ‘impatient’ and have been told by friends and others to ‘just enjoy the moment’ or ‘you never give it a chance’.  So this is something I have been working on for awhile.

LIVE IN THE NOW!  Especially with kids, I see the importance of this

So where does this wanting something ‘now’ come from? It comes down to our personalities, our society and how we were brought up.  So not much we can really do then, hey?  Think again… simply being AWARE of these attributes of ourselves is a big step in the right direction.  Once we recognize these characteristics in ourselves, maybe ones we don’t really  like of ourselves, we can then work on changing them:  How we react to certain situations and eventually how we think.  I am by no means an expert… just a student who is learning day by day how to navigate.

some lessons I’ve learned… and am still trying to implement daily:

– Calm down, everything has a time

– Keep learning … always!  (about you)

– Everyone is going through something, don’t be mean

I don’t know if you think I am ridiculous or not, but this is me and if I can help anyone by my mistakes that is why I am here!

Have a blessed day

Tomato, Tomato

November 20, 2014

Tomatoes, a fruit, not a vegetable!  Really!  Tomatoes have so much good stuff in them, as do every other natural raw food out there.  They really are worth eating. I remember watching an episode of ‘wheel of fortune’ with my Grandma (her favorite show) a number of years ago and Vanna White brought in a […]

Parenting and High Cholesterol

November 4, 2014

  When our third child was about a month old, my husband and I decided we should get life insurance.  A blood test of course is a part of that.  Feeling very confident that if we end up having any problems with it, it will be my husband’s ‘fault’… he smokes and doesn’t eat much […]

Your Teens and Their Health

October 14, 2014

The teenage years can be difficult ones, just thinking of my own… my children are not there yet.  What I remember of mine, growing up with 2 older sisters and all of us having our own activities to do, is that it was hard to remember to eat well sometimes.  My mom always had a […]

You gotta Trust the Parent, we are avoiding a Meltdown!

September 25, 2014

You know in some grocery stores the bakery hands out a free cookie to kids?  When I was young our local meat store would give us a wiener!  They don’t do that anymore.  Any ways… I always go by our bakery while I am grocery shopping with all 3 kids and the 2 bigger ones […]
