To Be Thankful!!!

The year of 2013 has been a rough one for me! I have gone through some loss and some gain. I lost my Dad (Dennis) in March, My oldest Golden Retriever (Jax), and my Uncle (Charles) this year.  I have also gained becoming a home owner, finally finding a great work from home job as a Marketing Assistant for Western Pennsylvania Healthcare News, plus doing some contract work on the side as a Virtual Assistant. I also have gained a love of Yoga and Meditation, although lately I have become lazy about doing both and I am not proud of it. I have realized that the heart does continue to beat after losing someone you love and what doesn’t kill you definitely makes you a stronger person.  So I am thankful that I got to spend 36 years with my Dad, I am thankful for family and friends, I am thankful for love, and I am thankful for health. I promise I will be back to updating regularly. Hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Yoga Day 10, 11, and 12 plus Meditation

Today I completed Yoga Day 10, 11, and 12 to get caught up with my 30 day challenge. Yoga Day 10 was all about Yoga for your side, Yoga Day 11 was a restorative Yoga day, and Yoga Day 12 was for our wrists and hands. I love that everyday it is broken down to specific parts of your body. Doing Yoga has kept me balanced and stress free. I rarely stress about things. I believe that everything in life happens for a reason and it all depends on how you look at what happened and how you heal and process it. I feel a shift happening in my life that is towards a good place.

The first week of meditation is about doing a 5 minute Asana, to open up the hips, for being comfortable in meditation and then a 10 minute meditation excercise following your breathing. It is a very calming and I personally have a clear mind when doing this. It states that if a thought comes to your mind, just file it away as a thought. Keep your mind open and clear.

My Wellness

Back in March, I lost my Dad to Cancer. Losing my Dad has taught me a lot about life and about myself. I started to live my life one day at a time, to not worry about the future and also not live in the past.  I have become more intuitive and I am now on a journey to keep finding that intuitiveness and more about myself. I have vowed to do more things for myself in order to find myself.  One of the things I have been doing is Yoga and Meditation.  I have started a 30 day Yoga challenge and also a 28 day Meditation Challenge. These 2 things keep me centered and feeling alive.

Healing means:

  1. To restore to health or soundness; cure. See Synonyms at cure.
  2. To set right; repair: healed the rift between us.
  3. To restore (a person) to spiritual wholeness.
I am starting to heal and the reason I know this is I cry less when thinking about my Dad. I have a closeness with him still, that will always remain.  He visits me in my dreams and reminds me to be calm. I know he is at peace and nothing is bothering him. He is now free from everything that didn’t serve him well.  Don’t get me wrong I would much rather him be here with me, but for reasons we will never know, it couldn’t be that way. Healing doesn’t mean that you are forgetting, it means you are accepting. Losing someone close sometimes puts you on a different path in this life. It has for me.
I am going to take you on this journey with me. Today was my first meditation day and for 10 minutes I focused on my breathing. It was such a calming experience. For Yoga, I am actually on day 10.
The websites where you can find these challenges are at:

Nature’s Dynamics Gummies Review

I am on this search for the perfect toddler vitamin that tastes good and has all the vitamins I am looking for. My favorite brand is Rainbow Light. Well I did a search and found Nature’s Dynamics.  I love the fact that all the vitamins are organic and have all the good stuff I was looking for, for my toddler. I thought gummy vitamin = yummy for my toddler. Well I received these in the mail and when I opened them, the smell hit me in the face. I understand that vitamins are going to have a vitamin smell, but this was really strong.  My toddler put one in his mouth chewed it and then needed a drink. Well lets just say that he does not want to eat these. So I am back to Rainbow Light vitamins. He started taking the Kids One chewable and seems to be doing good with it. I did have him on the Rainbow Light powdered vitamin since he was a baby and put it in his formula, then milk. I may try some of the other Nature’s Dynamics products though.

Indigo Wild Zum Clean Laundry Soap

I received a sample of Zum Clean laundry soap in a gift pack and the scent was Frankincense and Myrrh.  My clothes came out of the dryer smelling great and so soft.  I love this product, but not so much the price.  I will include a link to the product from the Indigo Wild website.  I do not buy this product on this site because of it being higher priced.  I have found this product on Amazon for a lower price.  Some may think I am crazy for paying 17.99 for a thing of laundry soap that washes 32 loads, but the smell and how soft your clothes are fresh out of the dryer are worth it.
