Walk Like A Flamingo Through Chronic Illness

Flamingo walking, don't get stuck in chronic illness

There are no easy ways to walk through chronic illness, so think like a flamingo. Stand on one leg most of the time. Walk when you have to. Float when you need to rest. And fly away when you are ready. In time, you may be one who can fly away from it all. Can you imagine leaving illness behind?

Enjoy The Rain

blue mind, enjoy the rain

When was the last time you stood outside in the rain? The last time I did it was in summertime when it calmed my spirit to feel the cool fresh drops. I often enjoy the sprinkles of rain. But the last time I stood in a downpour was one of the highlights of my life. It created a blue-mind memory.

Life is Like a Bowl of Cherries

Life is like a bowl of cherries

Cherries are in season and fresh cherries are on my brain. I think I have eaten so many that I have gone fruitloopy. Now I am thinking that life is like a bowl of cherries; sometimes it is the pits, sometimes it sweet, sometimes fresh and in season and sometimes frozen from the freezer. It is just life after all. It comes with the variety and adventure of not only eating in the season but living in season.

Dealing With Frustrations

how we deal with our frustrations

All I FEEL like doing is coming unglued because of the ongoing computer issues. I want to scream some days, other days I want to cry, many days I have to simply give it up for the day and retreat so I don’t let the stress knock me off my bum. What do you do when you hit a roadblock? How do you deal with the stressors of life? Have you learned that the stress is not worth your health?? Scream, cry, or laugh???? I am finally ready to laugh because I care more about my health than I do my goals or progress in other areas. So, come laugh with me…

Passing Home Stress Test

Life comes with “when it rains, it pours” stressors. That is just part of life. During chronic illness those times are especially hard to handle much less juggle.

Why We Should Call Natural Medicine the Original Medicine, Not Alternative Medicine

Somehow the masses have this one backward. “Alternative” medicine came along when people decided to replace natural medicine with chemical alternatives. Think about that. “Alternative” is actually the prescription and over-the-counter fake “medicines.” We can trace the original “medicines” from the beginning of mankind. Therefore, HOW in tarnation did natural medicine end up being called the “alternative???” Society has gotten this one turned upside-down.
