JUST SAY NO TO GMO...

Wellness coaching encompasses all aspects of wellness and so, when I came across this article I really wanted to share it with you.  One of my biggest pet peeves about our country is how little they care about our health and how, even though they know which foods and chemicals we ingest cause cancer and other debilitating and deadly diseases, they have no problem putting them into our foods (I hope everyone at Monsanto eats what they create...but I bet they don't). There are so many GMO's (genetically modified organisms) in our food these days that it is no wonder our bodies are retaliating against us, trying to get us to listen before it is too late. The following article from the Health Coach Institute  entitled, "This is why you have the right to know if it's GMO," does an excellent job at not only defining what GMO's are and where we find them, but also gives excellent tips.  I hope you will find it as interesting and helpful as I did: The acronym “GM

A PARENT'S LOVE WILL TRANSCEND ALL...

Today my best friend who lost her mother today, an amazing, caring, magnificent woman with an excellent sense of humor, who had been suffering for a long time with pain and debilitation due to her illness...to her I just want to say...a mother's love will transcend all realms to stay connected to her children.

It is as though she never really left...she only changed realms and we stay connected in a way that surpasses what we can understand in this physical realm that we know consciously. Our souls however, will always be

UNPACK YOURSELF...

As I was taking one of my beloved road trips the other day, the singer on one of my playlists belts out, “I'm taking down from the shelf, all the parts of myself that are packed away,” and I thought...that's it...that's what I need to do...unpack myself! Humans are many-faceted individuals and much of the time there are too many facets to use all at once, so we store away the ones we aren't currently using until we grow and change and are ready to unpack the ones we need. I have spent such a long time trying to find out who I am in recent months that I think I lost sight of who I want to be and that is the goal I am grabbing with both hands now, as I pull some of those facets out of storage and dust them off. Empathy is an amazingly helpful facet. Not only can you use it to empathize with others about what they are experiencing and help them accordingly, you can also use it to help yourself and to show yourself empathy as well, which sounds like an oxymoro
