Not every day will be a happy day but all emotion is healthy. Emotion equlivaltes to being alive. Don't fight your feelings but rather embrace to propel you ahead or to reconfigure. Everything has a purpose and the greater plan is beyond you. Don't get stuck but rather rise up, breathe, and work through whatever it is you are facing. You are not alone. Speak to someone and you give them the opportunity to grow and transform with you. We are all in the same boat. Gotta paddle together to stay afloat! Rely on yourself and rely upon others. To your health...and to all emotion!
Happy Birthday Grandpa Lewis! I will always think of you on this day. I see you smiling and finally embracing the goofy side of you, knowing the day of April Fool's, your birthday, is today! I thank you for your protection and continual love!
Remember those that have touched and changed your life. Today is a silly day, but one that I never embraced as much as I do now. All for the reason above.
Reflection is healthy. Memories are therapy for our souls. Think of a time you will always remember of someone that touched your life in this lifetime. Mine is my grandpa sitting on the front porch whittling a piece of wood while I played with my dolls. His smile I can still feel to this day. Happiness is a choice. Optimism is a choice. Today I choose to remember the happy times that my Grandpa shared with me. April is here...make it great! After all, its your choice!
Focus on improving your communication skills!
1. Let others finish before you speak
2. Listen without thinkng about what you will say
3. Restate what the other person said as you perceive it
4. You will feel uncomfortable at first
5. Misunderstandings will be prevented or resolved
6. The speaker will feel validated
7. Relationships will be strengthened
8. Stress from conflict in relationships will be greatly reduced
9. You will be happier
10. You help others be happier
Remember let others speak first, you listen, restate what you hear, and let the dialogue continue. What you are going to say as a response is the LEAST important in effective communication. This is contrary to what many see as effective communication. Try a different approach.
Less stress is awesome, incredible, freedom, and true health. Just listen, that's all you really need. The rest will naturally fall into place. To your health!
You are not defined by a job nor are you defined by perception. Follow all your interests and detours in your path; and trust me you will come up more complete than yesterday. I had a photo shoot today for my agency. I dabble in fit/print modeling and though it is hard work and a challenge (beyond what most think), I have become more balanced because of it. I don't put myself in a box. Don't let others or yourself either. Living life and saying YES! Mind, body, and spirit. Trust the process. Love and light....to your health!
Just Be..in the moment. Embrace what you DO have. Relax, smile, open up, and love. Remember we were all children with pure spirit. Go back to that time. See yourself as a child. Love that sweet spirit and then love yourself even more. Bless the child in all of us. Now go give thanks for another day. How to be HAPPY! I Love children...I Love YOU!
Dark chocolate and Red Wine: How do you feel when you hear this? Does the thought alone make you smile, happy, and relaxed?
The resveratrol found in both dark chocolate and red wine lowers blood sugar, ultimately making these heart healthy choices. Our senses respond to sound, sight, and smells in a way to increase endorphins, also lowering blood pressure.
Healthy and Happy: Two words that belong together for many reasons, just like dark chocolate and red wine!

What is Balance to You?
“Money never made a man happy yet, nor will it. The more a man has, the more he wants. Instead of filling a vacuum, it makes one.” Benjamin Franklin
“You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don't make money your goal. Instead, pursue the things you love doing, and then do them so well that people can't take their eyes off you.” Maya Angelou

These quotes, for me, couldn't be more true. Nothing is more satisfying than following you passions. Imagine the world without the constitute of money. How much different would our lives be in this present moment if we traded services and goods? Or at least found a middle ground, a balance, between greed and kindness. I have spoken with people that have more money than they know what to do with yet they are searching for ways to be healthy and happy. I have also spoken with those that have no money but smile,thank me, and tell me to have a blessed day as they leave the pharmacy. I wonder who has found their passion? Which person is truly happy? Find you passion, pursue your passion, and ultimately make this world a happier, healthier place. It takes money to survive but trust that you will always have enough. Ask yourself what is enough. Give more than you get and abundance will always come back to you. Choices exist everyday. Be kind or not. Give or get. Positive or negative. Which choice you make ultimately creates your reality. You are the captain of your ship. With much love and gratitude! Go have a happy, healthy day :)
