Health/Beauty Break….Apple Cider Vinegar

I am sure that most people have heard of all the wonderful things that apple cider vinegar can do for your body and hair. It has been labeled a “miracle” natural remedy for things like reducing blood pressure and blood sugars, weight loss, warding off cancer, a great clay mask for persons with oily skin…

There is no Competition!

We need to be honest. As much as we say that we do not care what people think about how we look or what we say, it is not true. We do! Most people are always worried about how people see them and it has got to be driving them crazy. It used to drive…

Oops, I did it again… another mistake

We need to face the absolute fact that no matter how good we think we are, we are never going to be perfect! (not here on earth, anyway). We need to own that! The worst thing we can do is swallow it and cover it, making a collection of bad things that we plan on…

Are you responsible”for” or “to” them?

I read somewhere that The Law of Responsibility says that we are responsible FOR ourselves and TO others. Seriously, there is nothing wrong with helping another person.

Alone And Not Mad About It

When you are an introvert, people think something is wrong with you. Everyone loves a person that can work a crowd. Most people think to work in groups or on teams is the only way to find an answer to a problem. Are two heads really better than one? Is collaboration the only way of…

Loving/Accepting Yourself..for real

I don’t think a day goes by where I do not say things like, “I want to lose 20 more pounds…then I will be happy.” “If my waist was a little more snatched, I could wear that dress.” Anyone else? I have been struggling with this for what feels like forever–always wanting to change something…

Food and Nutrition: Are You Zinc Deficient?

Zinc is great for keeping our immune system running in tip top shape. It is a very important mineral that our cells need to keep our body running smoothly, especially our metabolism, growth, and senses. They say that real zinc deficiency is uncommon in North America because the average diet has plenty of zinc through…
