Love Thy Neighbor 

Sometimes I feel like just leaving everything and going somewhere quite, and starting all over again. But I know that can never happen, or maybe it can I don’t know but what I do know is,  I can only start to live in the moment each day so that’s what I am trying to do but it’s hard. And I say that because I find there are not much people you can talk to about our lord and really have a good conversation about him. This world is full of temptation and it’s our cross we have to walk everyday but, we do need some help. Each day we face a lot, and when you go home and close that door what is it you are thinking about? Do you play your day in your head or you think about what you should have done different?  When you meet someone for the first what is it you talk about? Is it about the lord Jesus cause that will be crazy. Try this the next time you meet someone or trying to befriend a person or just in general, make your first topic about God, or at the end of your conversation say God bless, look at it like you trying to find a connection with this person through God. Every one of us will say I am my own person and I think for myself, but when you look at it we are all followers of something , what are you a following?  The person next to you, busy trying to look like the next person or god?  As I say we need one another. Ask yourself what can I do to  help my neighbor? Getting them something to eat? Take care of the poor? Taking the time to really listen to someone? And when you do, will you take it to the  grave or will you tell the first person you meet ? When I was younger I had a friend in my class, and I ask my mother if I can give her something, and she said if you are going to do this you can’t let your four fingers know what your thumb is doing, and I say ok because I understand what she were saying. So what are you willing to do each day in living your best life on this earth ? Every morning look in the mirror and ask as a child of God what can I do for my neighbor today. God is good all the time.

     

Creating A Home Gym

I am creating a gym in my hallway where I can do my workouts, right now I’m doing it in the living room but that’s a bit daunting because I have to bring everything there and take them back. So now I have the perfect space for it. I love working out outside so when the winter comes I have no choice but to take my workout indoors, I really don’t do well in the cold so going to a gym would be a big no for me . It takes to much motivation to workout during the winter let alone going to a gym, don’t mind I want to try a cold weather run one day. Also the cost and getting there and don’t forget all the naked people in the changing room. I once had a membership in a gym and I couldn’t used the equipment I wanted because someone always hogging it, or I would find sweat all over the mats that I started to bring my own. But don’t get me wrong home gyms isn’t for everyone some of us need to get out of  the house or we simply can’t motivate ourselves to exercise regularly. These days there are so much on line Gyms, DVD or even Youtube.  You can created a little space in your own home and start exercising whenever you are ready without leaving .  So if you guys are a gym person or like to workout at home like me or whatever you do to get in that exercise enjoy God is good.

Stress Free Nights

Sometimes before bed I get anxious and I can’t sleep, so I try having stress free nights by doing some one minute breathing and also writing some positive notes to myself and sticking them on the fridge, the bathroom mirror and on the front door. Or preparing my clothes for the next day its the little things I do before bed, and it gives me something to look forward to the next day. But I must say mediating and boiling some spices on low heat before bed helps. With a mixed of lemon cranberry nutmeg cinnamon stick ground cinnamon cloves  bay leaves ginger and water. It’s very  festive and  really give off a nice fragrant. So these are some of the ways I stay stress free at nights , God is good.

Alone Time

Tonight it’s me my PJ Chocolate Truffles and the Hallmark Channel countdown, I’m in a different world. These flowers I had like 3 weeks now and they all die out, but I keep wetting them with cold water and I just love the look vintage.The red rose I had in the freezer for five years now it belong to my sister-in-law, we were all given a red rose at her funeral and I always wanted to do something for her with the rose. I decided to place it with the vintage flowers and it fit perfect. Hopefully it would last a next five years and I would get to enjoy it at every holiday. God is good.

November

Well hello November I’m so happy you are here, with your ever-changing color of leaves always put me in a good mood for the holidays. This is the time to cool your body down, with some brown sugar honey and peppermint scrub, which will leave your skin feeling fresh and hydrated, it will also peel off dry skin and smooth you into this crisp weather. I sometimes get lost at this time of year,  it’s like the mysteries of nature while the leaves turning different colors, and everyone a little more cheerful the fruits and vegetable in full bloom. like you know something good is coming and you have to hurry and prepare yourself for it. There’s so much to do in getting  yourself ready.  As a tradition I always buy the Mulling Spices and boil on a low heat, and let me tell you the scent is so nice you will be smiling all the time, that’s one of the first things I do to get me going and also my oolong organic tea which I tend to drink a lot of in the winter. How about you guys let me know in the comments. God is good.
