In the past couple months I have decided to re-create a new lifestyle in several areas.

1. A renewed commitment and focus on living the abundant life god designed me for by putting my relationship with Him back at the top of my priority list.

2. Started a part-time job at a local daycare.

3. Started my own business to support my healthy lifestyle journey and support others in their quest for natural options for personal care products and supplements free of additives, preservatives and toxic chemicals.

Health, Wellness and Abundance came with my decision to quit living by default and choosing instead to OPTIN to living my best life possible by living with intent and purpose.

NOT an 'overnight change' but a progress and process that means making intention choices and taking daily action with my future in mind.

I have a plan and goals for the next 5-10 and 40 years.....

Some days the progress seems slow - some days a surprising leap ahead - but progress is being made.

NEVER give up on yourself!
You are never to old (or to young)
To live the life you were designed for!

Be Blessed!

    Excellence is never an accident. It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, and intelligent execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives - choice, not chance, determines your destiny.
    ― Aristotle

    Have no regrets in life because of the choices you make. Good or bad, they are a learning experience, to help you grow. The only regret in life, is to never make a choice at all.
    ― James Hauenstein

    I can't change it now, and besides, I like who those years made me into.
    ― Meg Collett

    Attitude is a choice. Happiness is a choice. Optimism is a choice. Kindness is a choice. Giving is a choice. Respect is a choice. Whatever choice you make makes you. Choose wisely.― Roy T. Bennett

    It is so simple: the choices we make in our everyday lives, the things we do or not, define the world we live in.

    A friend is one that knows you as you are, understands where you have been, accepts what you have become, and still, gently allows you to grow.
    ― William Shakespeare

    Find a group of people who challenge and inspire you; spend a lot of time with them, and it will change your life.— Amy Poehler

    Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down.
    — Oprah Winfrey

    If you wanna find out who's a true friend, screw up or go through a challenging time ... then see who sticks around.

    emoticon Un-attachment (as opposed to detachment) is the acceptance that each and every person is responsible for his or her own reality, and that our joy, peace, security, and sense of love is not dependent on any other person or situation. We are each responsible for our own emotional well being.

    Karen R (ADALOUISE) from the Scarlet Dragons would like you to join her this month in the Breast Cancer Awareness Month Challenge! Breast cancer has touched the lives of so many of us, and we all know early detection is the key, whether male or female!

    So before you give the tatas a once-over, let’s get in a workout first! The exercises listed have a modifier with each, so you can join in at any fitness level! If there’s still something you are unable to do, please modify to meet your specific needs! The point isn’t to show your strength training prowess and be the best of the best. The point is to PARTICIPATE! Now let’s get a little hooter sweat going before we hop in the shower to do our self exams!

    S-50 SQUATS (50 Adductor/Abductors)

    E-50 FRONT JABS (50 Seated Biceps Curls)

    L- 30 LATERAL LUNGES (30 Seated Hip Extensions)

    F-30 FORWARD LUNGES (30 Squats, holding the back of a chair)

    E-50 JUMPING JACKS (50 Seated Jumping Jacks)

    X-30 PUSH UPS (30 Wall Pushups)

    A-30 ALTERNATING HAMSTRING CURLS (30 Standing Hip Flexion/Extension holding the back of a chair or wall)

    M-50 HIGH KNEE MARCH IN PLACE (50 Seated High Knee Marches)

    Do what you can, modify what you need to, but try your best, regardless of fitness level! If you’ve got a suggestion on an exercise you’d like to see incorporated into the challenges, please let us know!
