Your Ship Has Finally Come!

Royal-Denship-Princess-Mariana

Your ship has come in at the very moment you decide that you are perfect … yet, not complete.

Like attracts like. The pleasing thoughts of your perfection (and perfecting) will attract to them (and you) more wonderful and intentional events and opportunities of like energy (pleasing).  Don’t wait to SEE things as you would like them to be.  Attract goodness to you, by FINDING things to feel good about , even in the midst of  your world’s turmoil and chaos.

BE SURE TO ENJOY THE INSPIRATION BEHIND EACH PIC (make sure and click).

Fun Begins Here!

Man on new motor trike

Along the road of LIFE (Living In Full Enjoyment), i came to BE … not someone, something or somewhere … just BE … just ME! That’s when the fun began.

The gentle man in the photo is neither rock star or reality show heart throb.  Yet, he is the envy and idol of millions across the globe.  His grand, yet simple accomplishment is revealed in his casual conversation about why he rides his evolutionary reverse-trike, Can-Am Spyder.  He offers two minor points for our consideration:  “It’s Fun and I can?”

So often, we go out of our way to confound the imbecile with the complexity of our passion for living, doing, being.  We drape ourselves in the euphonious plausibility of jargon and sayings.  To the chagrin of many, the joy of living remains an elusive chalice from  which drips the sanguine tears of a bleeding heart.

What does all of that mean?  KISS – keep it simple, silly!  Your simple is straight-forward and easily aligns itself with the comings and goings of your LIFE.  If it’s fun and you can … then DO, BE and HAVE! You deserve just such a LIFE.  LIFE on purpose … til death do we part!

Snack Healthy

Woman_Eating_Clean_BreakfastWhen it comes to snack time, I know that many would prefer that piece of chocolate cake or a couple of Twinkies, but there is a down side to downing them, unfortunately.  They are primarily made with white sugar that has been refined from its natural state.  By choosing fruits or veggies rather than candy or cake, you will boost your energy level naturally while regulating your digestive system.  Also you can try a fruit-powered smoothie as a meal replacement or as a snack.  If you must feed your sweet tooth, you can find soy or rice ice cream at the health food stores and most major grocery chains (they also come in ice cream sandwiches and bars).  Even something as simple as a couple graham crackers will feed your craving.  The Alternative Baking Company (www.alternativebaking.com) makes a line of delicious cookies that are large enough for 2 snack portions.  They are vegan, but you would never know it.  If you must have a chocolate fix, it is not outsude the realm of possibility.  Eating dark chocolate made with at least 62% cacao is an excellent way to get some much needed antioxidants and sterols (the good kind).

There are so many different ways to feed your snack craving.  Ultimately, the foods that you choose will be an aid or detriment to your decision to live a healthier life.  You don’t have to give up your favorite snack foods for a sedentary life of plain rice cakes.  Taking the road less traveled can be FUN and good for you, too.
