then there was you...

and then there was you…

A sassy beauty queen with built up walls and a stepping stool behind the wall so you could peak over as you saw fit.

You wanted to change the world                                                                                                             But weren’t sure how

You wanted to trust                                                                                                                                 But you’d been hurt before and the wounds were still fresh

You wanted to love                                                                                                                                But you weren’t sure if others could receive what you had without turning to run.

Then one day you decided to grow wings.                                                                                        Standing behind the wall wasn’t enough.

You were trapped inside a world of your own creation and you knew it.                                        So you kicked over the stool and shot up towards the sky

Because you always knew how to                                                                                                               And flying was as natural as breathing

 

 

It's Time to Hit the Reset Button

It's Time to Hit the Reset Button

The onset of a new year typically represents a fresh start, an opportunity to change the things that didn't go so well the prior year, and a renewed spark of hope to bring forth dreams unrealized.

But here's the truth of the matter, if we go into the "new" year with the same "old" mind and frame of thinking, we will create the same results.

How can the outcome possibly be different if the way that we think has not changed?

Two years ago I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease and experienced severe pain throughout my body. If you live with chronic pain, you know how debilitating the constant discomfort can be on your body, energy level, and feelings of overall happiness. I experienced an endless cycle of pain followed by feelings of frustration and loss of hope when nothing seemed to relieve the pain.

Light on B-12

Light on B-12

The fear of not consuming enough B12 is a common concern for people who are thinking about making the switch to a plant-based diet.  The collective misconception is that B12 can only be obtained by consuming animal-based products, which, needless to say, puts vegetarians and vegans at a disadvantage. Alas, that is only a misconception and you will be happy to know that both carnivores and herbivores can enjoy an adequate supply of B12 from their food.
