The Body and Mind

I’ve come to the conclusion that you will be more successful if the body and mind are completely healthy. I mean this in all aspects.

A body full of Alkaline is healthy. A mind free of negative thoughts is healthy.

Alkaline
Add greens and more greens to your diet. A body should have 80% Alkaline foods and less than 20% of acidity foods. It’s not expensive…a dollar for the Kale, another dollar for the garlic, about 3 bucks for garlic salt and water is free. No excuses.

 

Spinach Shake
Spinach, peanut butter, banana, almond milk and a scoop of protein powder. Ice, blend and drink up!

You drink too much? Probably not so healthy. Smoke? Have you ever read the label on the side that reads, “may cause cancer?”

Why do we love what is so bad for us? I have 4 mini chocolate cookies from Jack In The Box on my desk. Popping one into my mouth now.  It’s so warm, soft and moist. It melts in my mouth. I like to drink, I’m most definitely a beer girl. I do love red wine as well. I use to smoke, I still do occasionally. Hopefully this is the one blog post my son doesn’t read because he’d be so mad…about the smoking that is.

I normally eat pretty good. I’m a health conscious person minus the smoking. I don’t drink too much. Cookies are once in a while. I don’t buy a lot of junk for the house. I exercise, I wish everyday but it doesn’t always happen. Like there are some days when I’m horrible. All I do is eat chips, drink sodas and eat and just eat! Then tomorrow comes and I have to work out extra hard and eat nothing but greens! I may not love it, but it’s the price I pay for being bad.

My mind…

I continually look for ways to improve my mind. I read, listen to audio recordings from Jim Rohn and Tony Robbins. I’m always trying to learn something new. Is it the Virgo in me? Must be, we like to learn new things.

I’ve found my way towards mediating and yoga. I do a lot of breathing in and out exercises. And you know what? It helps. It works when someone cuts me off and almost causes me to get into an accident. Without the breathing I’d just slam right into them…or tail them like white on rice and make them as nervous as possible. That can lead to even further problems….I’ve encountered some in the past already LOL.  Oops.

So today’s rambling is about how we should proceed each day to make life a little more controllable. This is just my opinion.  I think we need to be alert, aware and turn into a *sponge <<< Meaning take EVERYTHING IN. Open our eyes and mind completely. Our body and mind is one. They both have to function properly to perform to the best of their ability. It won’t be flawless but it can be healthy.

Normally when we search, we will find. Well, only if you try hard enough. What is it that you want? Lets think about our personal life, what do we want? The American dream? A loving partner, a nice home, 3 kids and a dog? Or no kids? You want to travel and be adventuress? Do you want to be an entrepreneur? Or do you want to become the CEO of a multi-billion dollar company? Our desires, we want what we what. Some will do whatever it takes to obtain it and others will just go with the motions.

I cannot just go with the motions. I have some weird obsession with not being accomplished enough. It seems no matter what goal I achieve, I still feel as if I am not where I need to be. That my friends, drives me crazy. You know why? I may never really be truly happy and that scares me. The only thing I can think of is –  I haven’t yet found my calling, what I was put on this earth to do. Until then, I just have to keep going and going. This is probably why I can’t just sit still. Always working on something new. In a way it’s good. I push myself in every way possible. From my physical appearance to my physical health. As well as what I have and want…materially speaking. I focus on where I want to go and where I need to be. I strive to grow. The truth is there are no limits, so it’s OK for me to want more. The key is to find out why I’m here…in the process I will try to conquer greatness. Who knows, maybe I will spend my entire life chasing nothing. I’m willing to take that chance, I won’t just exist.

So, we all need to take a good look at ourselves. Internally, physical and mentally. Work on what needs adjusting and from there find what fuels your fire. What makes you tick, what makes you dream. Everyday after will be another day closer to your calling. We all have one. But, greatness isn’t for everyone. Exist or conquer ? You pick, have a great week loves 🙂

About me…let’s see….I would say I am a TRUE Virgo. If you knew me, then you would so agree. There are quite a few things I care deeply about. Off the top of my head, I would say with much passion, my family, friends, the environment and world peace. Oh and animals. Can't forget them. I think I love animals more than most humans, lol. I believe it’s important to surround yourself with good people. Be picky with who you let in your circle. The environment, the earth does not belong to us. We are merely just visiting for a period of time. So lets no abuse it. World peace, that’s a hard one. It’s not a perfect world, but wouldn't it be wonderful if every child, women and man were safe? We can’t change the world and every single soul living on earth. But one person can make a great difference in the surroundings in which they live. Wouldn't you agree? Let’s not forget what fuels my soul, music. It speaks for me when I can’t. It expresses my feelings when I am unaware of what they are. It has a way of lifting my spirits when I am down. It has this magical power that is able to touch my heart with just lyrics alone. I wouldn't know what I would do without it. Poetry, I love poetry. In all forms...written or spoken.

Any thoughts?
