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 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 ?
What recession ?
The one they tell us we are having so that we go in to a state of panic and stop spending money and the chain reaction starts , people don’t spend money , companies start to miss that money they told us we shouldn’t be spending because of the recession and then people get laid off because the companies are missing the money that we have and are told not to spend . The money is there is doesn’t just disappear . It cycles all the time . But when we are told that there is a problem we stop the cycle . Then it seems that the money has disappeared . That is just giving the government time to figure out how to hide all the money they took out of the cycle .
It reminds me of the traffic signs on the highway . You know the digital ones that tell you if there is traffic ahead . All the sudden when you get to those exits mentioned on the sign everybody slows down . Usually there is no direct reason for the traffic other than the sign states that it should be there .
