Every year, all around the globe people make different New Year’s resolutions. Rather it maybe losing weight, going on that vacation or visiting family. Everyone hopes for new things, better things for the year to come. So what do YOU hope for 2017?
This year i’m not going to make the list a mile high like the years in the past. 2016 was a harsh year, between multiple deaths, loss of friends and a constant headache with my health. For the 2017 resolutions I am only choosing three the rest will come in god’s will: Love stronger, forgive more, and don’t stop walking. Some would say that’s clique because of the known quote “live,laugh,love”. However, they couldn’t be further from the meaning behind my resolutions.
I want to love myself stronger, I want to share my love with my family members more, I want to love my partner stronger in our relationship.
Everyone says they’re going to forgive more but do we really? So this year I’m dedicating more to forgive the ones in my past, the present and the future.
Lastly, don’t stop walking is probably my deepest resolution for the coming year. I mean it not just physically but emotionally as well. I need to walk daily for health benefits, but I need to remind myself to not stop walking mentally. When there is that log in the way of my path I need to continue to walk forward not backwards like the years behind me.
So to the new year to come. I welcome 2017 with open arms and faith god will lead me where he wants me. SO to 2017! CHEERS!
I use to be full of vigor when it came to writing. Then with time,life, and many trials I have fallen short of anything close to it. I would write on anything I could as a kid rather it been in trees, rocks and even my dad’s tools. It could have been a new word I learned in school, or just a quick thought. I still imagine a desk in front of a window with a basket full of wadded up paper but a final copy of a finished work. Yet, the only thing that is on my desk is empty notebooks and new pens. My vigor soul is there waiting to be let out but the wall is almost impossible to break down.
Thanksgiving, some a history moment of peace between people of other cultures. Others and like many Americans we celebrate how thankful we are for our families, friends and even our careers. We come together at this time of the year to remember to be thankful for what we have. Rather it’s family, friends or just thankful for shelter we have. So I want to start by saying thank you to my select few friends and family members who have been there for me. As well as our service men of all types and my truck drivers that helped make sure my Oreo’s were on the shelf tonight. With all that being said I hope that all of you reading this a happy, happy and yummy thanksgiving. May our loved ones come together tomorrow in PEACE and spread the JOY with all of our yummy dishes out there.
Never can win, never loose, I just find myself upside down.
Right is wrong and left is wrong.
My shadows turn into my light.
Those thoughts, those voices.
Just my demons playing mary-go-around.
You ask what’s real anymore.
All those hateful words that come out of their mouths.
Are they lies or are they the reality of our life?
The room is spinning like tornado.
The bitter coldness becomes your blanket.
The anger, the grief becomes your happiness.
Isn’t your life grand? They ask.
There is this one fruit that has the ability to be used in all main areas in a person’s life. Can you guess which fruit it is? Between the amounts of vitamins, the weight loss advantage and the cleaning ability who doesn’t want to use this fruit in their lives? Have you guessed what it is? I’ll give you a hint. The fruit is small, can be pretty bitter, and yellow. You’re right it’s LEMONS!!
You heard me right, lemons. Those citric, bright lemons are one the healthiest, multipurpose fruit known to man. According to many scientist, and the great known Dr. Oz lemons have been proved to be high in several essential vitamins. This includes vitamin c, b-complex, calcium and even potassium! Who knew right? I have been taking supplements for vitamin b for a while now so after using lemons in my daily diet I have been able to decrease the amount of vitamin b I take!
With the multiple vitamins lemons have there are several ways you can use it in your daily lives. Did you know that lemon juice helps with dark spots too?? They have been proven to help fade scars even. One the most exciting benefits of lemons is the weight loss capability! Who doesn’t like the sound of adding a simple fruit to your diet and lose a couple pounds by boosting your metabolism!! Do you have issues with bloating or maybe even a sore throat?? Add that lemon!
Cleaning is just as essential as your health and once again lemons have a way to make that scrubbing easier! Because lemons are natural acidic it can help you take those stains right out and even brighten those white socks with just a little bit juice. Who doesn’t love a shiny metal faucet? Lemons are known for taking that grime off easy scratchable surfaces and turning them into new!
Ah, the love of lemons! Lemons are so fresh smelling and the benefits are more natural then trying to buy chemical products. So why not switch out the bottle of coke for a glass of lemon water or tea? Why not put that metal scratcher away and squeeze some juice? So put those away and grab you some lemons!
I am as eager as a beaver.
