Live, Love, Laugh

Without Health, we are unfit, unhappy and unable to live life to it’s fullest. I think everyone can agree with me on this.

Have you ever had a cold that just wouldn’t leave you alone? Or have you recently found out something new about your health that brought you to a shock? It’s not easy. If you have, you now understand the value of your health. Some of us can control the destruction of our health while others it is genetic. Do what you can for yourself if you can to simply help yourself and your body. Take care of yourself by adding the right diet into your body and the right nutritious to keep you fit and alive.

Take a look at the following Nutrition guide and make it a part of your life! Print this and stick it on your fridge, start today.

Relationship Status: Be The Best You Can Be

Being in a relationship, it is a lot of work. Sometimes a relationship can make you ill from all the arguments and problems that can occur. But it can all be avoided by simply knowing how to treat your other half.

I have been in a relationship for quite a long period and I have always had to practice these few tips in my own relationship, and these are to respect the person you are with, to listen to him/her, to please him/her, to always seek to better yourself, to challenge him/her to be better for them self, to have that trust between each other and to simply love one another.

I know from my experience, I always strive to show respect to my boyfriend, we make sure that we are both becoming better people together and challenging each other, I have noticed that my boyfriend truly follows these 10 traits of a ‘Great Boyfriend’ and this is why we still are striving today for that great relationship, because as long as one person is teaching these traits the other will follow them too and learn their value. So if you have been feeling some tension lately with your other half and you don’t know what is causing it and how to deal with it, take a second, consider these traits and see if maybe there is something that you can be doing better to better your relationship.

Follow this link, it really is a great way to have a meaningful relationship. I may demonstrate how a boyfriend can Great, but I truly feel this is a great link for both women and men.

Welcomed Home: Making a Difference!

I thought about different blog ideas, but I really wanted to make this one a special one. Wellness, it’s not only about OUR WELLNESS, it’s about what we make of it. Wellness should be shared, one should not wish wellness on them-self and neglect others. It is for this reason that I want to share my experience with you.

I went on a mission to Africa: Ethiopia, and I strongly felt like I have felt the most well I ever have. This was not because I, MYSELF felt well, but I made OTHERS feel well, by being there physically, mentally, emotionally and thoughtfully. You can take care of your heath and you can eat and exercise well, but if you do not try to make others feel well, you are not doing much. By simply helping friends, family, and even strangers, you become WELL, that is because doing good to others makes you feel great and makes the other person feel great too. As a collective, you are making a difference when everyone is well.

I don’t wish to mention this to make anyone feel bad if they don’t help, whether they don’t have the ability or simply don’t think about it, I wish to simply bring awareness to you all that being happy, being well, it’s more than just YOU. Help, Assist, Care, MAKE A DIFFERENCE! Don’t be Shy, go for it!

Be the change that you wish to see in the world. ― Mahatma Gandhi

My experience in Ethiopia was outstanding and really changed my world, it was exceptional and really showed me the beauties of life; it is not the material we have or wish to have, it is not the food that we over-indulge, but the food we appreciate and are thankful to have, it is not the electronics that we carry around day and night but the books that will teach us about life and growth. It is about the people you meet and the people that change your life when you are changing theirs. For this I say, people out there wish to be where we are and we are constantly angry and upset about our lives and what we don’t have or don’t have enough of, money comes and goes, other materials are disposable but solid actions are what stay with us.

Remember your health is most important and learning it the hard way can be a shock, so I say, make sure you take care of yourself and those around you because when others around you are well, you will feel well. Don’t be afraid to try, because as long as you try to make a difference, it counts.

After you read this, think of one thing you can do as a person that will make someone else well and do it. See how it makes you feel and how the other person reacts to it. Trust me and make it happen! And for those wishing to make a difference in a larger way, through a mission, please don’t be afraid to contact me for advise and encouragement, because making this decision was the greatest decision of my life and I WILL do it again.
