I went to a health conference this weekend at the Jacob Javits Center . There were some pretty incredible speakers there from Mark Hyman, MD Joe Cross of Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead , Dr. Joel Fuhrman , to Deepak Chopra . I was in a room for 2 day with 4,000 like minded people . The energy was UNREAL ! I was sure that I was in the right place a the right time . There was enless information to be heard . I was beyond inspired . By the time I left the conference Sunday , I knew for sure I was doing the right thing in my life . I am attendning Institute for Integrative Nutrition . I am treating this education as if I was going to Medical school . There is a lot of information I have to learn and experience so I can pass that GOOD information on . I am asking for your support in my journey through school for the next 11 months . During these months I will be learning about health and how to have my own business . I will need to start taking health histories . The more I do the better I will get . This part of my education is Important .
I have BIG goals So I am diving right in ! ! !
So I enrolled in school . I choose to find something that I can really be myself and help others . SOOOOO , I enrolled in IIN . For those that never saw the initials before it stands for the Institute for Intergrated Nutrition . This EXCITES me !
LIFE IS GREAT !
The school provide me with an education on health ,wellness and nutrition . They DO NOT follow the FDA food pyramid . Actually this school validates the life style I choose to live . I will have the back ground to further assist others in seeking this type of life style . Or even those that think they cannot achieve a lifestyle like this .
This weekend they are holding the BIGGEST health conference in NYC . It will be at the Javitz Center . I am excited to be going alone . It gives me the opportunity to mingle without anyone holding me back . I know that in order for me to be successful in this business I have to hang with like-minded people and make GREAT connections . I do that well ! I will be posting my journey throughout the next 11 months .
KEEP YOUR HANDS AND FEET IN THE SEAT AND ENJOY THE RIDE ! ! !
So school is what I choose to do for myself to reach my goals . My main goal is to bring awareness one person at a time . In the end I just want the best for everyone . So I am excited about it . I am enrolled with IIN . I start next week . I got all my tools to start . This is exciting for me . I have always been into health and nutrition . I like sharing the good information I know with others . I LOVE helping people . Which brings me to what else I will be doing while going to school . I am writing 2 books . There are a few I am interested in writing about . I just start with these 2 first .
So I am going to keep a journal on here of my discoveries while taking on my new life .
Keep your hands and feet in the seat and enjoy the ride !
I have had plenty of time to figure out what I want to do with my life . Yet I cannot commit to a solid decision . Been thinking I know I am a natural healer . Spiritually , Physically and Mentally . It is choosing the right venue for myself to express it and help people . I know I am supposed to be well-rounded in plenty of things . Where do I begin ? Do I home school myself ?
I don’t enjoy working for someone . I like to think that if I am working hard I will reap the benefits . I need to act fast . Everyday take steps to get to my goals . Speaking of Goals . I think I need to set some fresh and new ones . Some simple to achieve and some that will take some serious commitment . I need to show myself I am the only one who is gonna get me there !
Life is GREAT !
I haven’t written in forever it feels like . Time To Step Up I need to get started again . Writing here and for myself . I started writing a book . although I have ideas for several books . I just feel like my mind goes a mile a minute and I don’t know how to slow it down enough to make sence of my thoughts .
I also need to bring in some $$$ to my household . With things that are going on around me I have to make some choices to provide important changes to our lives . I am going to keep a log of my journey . Upward and Onward to everyday being a new day ! Life is GREAT and I am gonna make sure it stays that way .
I want to take a minute to have gratitude . . . For my amazing life partner . I am forever GRATEFUl for the relationship we have . You are my BEST FRIEND ! My wonder children , having you both in my life completes me as person . I am grateful to be able to have a supportive family and unconditional friends . I love you all !
Mason’s making me wish I can go back to sleep and start the day over again . When is this kid gonna learn ? Why the hard way is his only option . No matter how many times we tell him life is a CHOICE . He chooses to make the same mistakes at least 20 times until I punish him from the world for him to understand . Is it that he is spoiled ? Where did I go wrong ? Should I have spanked him growing up ? I didn’t like it but I listened to my parents .
How do I get my point across to my kids with the correct discipline ? What is the correct discipline ?
Is there a right and a wrong way ?
My children are my life and when I feel that they are disrespectful to me I feel that somewhere I have failed as a parent . I don’t know why anyone would take advantage of someone who already does everything for them . Is that my bad for always being there for them ?
Shakti Mat . . .
My husband bought me this mat for my birthday . I am turning 21 LOL 37 in a few days . I have been into alternative medicine for at least 20 years . I have done all sorts of cleanses and fasts . I have every type of massage that they do . I love having 30 needles in my back .
This tops the cake . A BED of NAILS is what this is . I have been laying on it this past week . HOLY COW !
Not sure if it is me or but it hurts yet I choose to stay laying on it then I get past the pain when my endorphins kick in and I only feel a burn where I have issues with my back . It reminds my of what it feels like after getting TATTOOED a few hours . That is exactly how I describe it to my husband like having a full back piece just done on my back . I started last Saturday for 10 min and I have worked my way up to 15 mins .
If you are interested it is cheaper on Amazon.com then the actual website .
Some much has transpired in my life since I started this blog . I have traveled to places I never thought I would see . I met some amazing people I call my friends . Life has taken its twists and turns . I have made good and bad decisions along the way . When I look back I question myself ” Would you have done it any different ?” Sure I would have , That doesn’t mean I have regrets . I am grateful for my life experiences . I think I am a caring ,giving , nurturing , spiritual human being . I am those things because of the things I have experienced in my life .
I decided to keep a weekly journal again online . Here on this blog . Just if not to inspire anyone . A place where my children can come back and read what their Mother’s take on life is like .
LIFE IS GOOD !
What an over rated day today is . I never was one to like to be told what to do . So when it comes to holidays I don’t celebrate them the same . When I first got married , my husband and I celebrated every holiday on the calender . Did I mention we had no money and I was on WIC .
So to get on with the story as my husband and I started to grow spiritually we seem to get less attached to the calander holidays . We were understanding the importance of celebrating life everyday and not just on special occasions . We understood the waste of money that holidays cost . The fact that others make a ridiculous profit from hard working 🙂 people on a day that we are told to celebrate is fascinating to me . Slowly we weened ourselves off the holidays . We started to appreciated each other and the loved ones around us all the time . Random flowers and nice dinners . Cards of gratitude don’t have to wait for a holiday to be shared .
We are parents and I think we are really setting a presence with our children of what is really important in life . That is not to let it fly by you . Let it not be the world that dictates to you when you should let someone know you love them . Let it be a way of life . Be good to others everyday . Make everyday a day to celebrate 🙂 .
Life is GOOD !
It is time to say good-bye to the past few years . I can only hold on to the success I have found . I will have to remind myself that I didn’t fail . I learned a lot . If I continue to see the past as a failure I will never be able to move UPWARD AND ONWARD .
I was reading a post on Extreme John .com . It really made me see that anyone is capable of change as long as they can recognize it and want to see life different . All we need to do is let go . Stop worrying about what others are achieving and find your own success . John was right in changing his focus . I will do the same . My focus is on how I am going to achieve my next goal 🙂
Life is good , So why create it to be bad ?
