Hello, Vibrant Reader!
Great in 2008! Sweet and simple--no more fooling around with "heaven in 2007," or getting kicks in 2006. It's a new year and a new start. I love it!
As I look over my "list," I see a few items that have carried over from last year--mainly having to do with fitness. I talked to my good friend, Kathleen, and we pledged a pact to each other to meet once a week to coach each other on our resolutions. Since she's a masseuse and works at a health club, and I'm pretty good with her for focusing her attention on her goals, we make a good match, and so far, it's been very useful.
One of the great ways to ensure success with any self-improvement goal is to seek out others for help, advice, or to buddy up with. The added attention and intention that is created by doing this is often all you need to get past mental and physical barriers.
Carrying over from last year--are two things that really worked for me, and I want to re-commit to doing: Watching my thoughts, and Forgiving. By "watching my thoughts," I don't mean preventing or judging. I mean stepping outside of my mind, and simply observing what thoughts are occurring and what happens with them. Many times, I can spot pesky negativities, or snap judgements that I wouldn't not have normally acknowledged. This is really tied to "forgiving," mainly myself. Because, rather than come down on myself with recriminations for my thoughts, if I forgive, I can then move on, because it's clear that my intention is to improve.
And, I think that applies to others, too. I mean, with maybe some pathological exceptions, most everyone would rather by happy than sad, and are actively working on getting there. So, they have that intention. How can I judge them negatively for that, just because maybe some behavior pushed an ego button?
I'm always interested to hear from you about how you're getting those New Year's Resolutions accomplished--any tips or tricks, and I'll include them in the Blog. So, let me hear from you!
Until next week...
In vibrant health,
5 Diet Resolutions for New Year
Resisting the Roadblocks to Your Success
Our resident Life Coach and Synergy Specialist, Charly Emery, ruminates on the wastefulness of guilt, especially relevant in the holiday season. Let's see, there's food, there's gifting, there's Uncle Henry--all ripe opportunities to guilt ourselves out of the good time. Charly says, "On the road to manifesting what you desire, there are so many little deterrents that can pull your focus away from creating what you want, or interrupt your ability to receive what you wanted when it comes to you. However, few things steal your dreams and your time like guilt. It is incredibly insidious as it often disguises itself as something worthwhile--like a bridge to your conscience--when in reality it serves only to prevent you from moving forward..." >>>> MORE

By Dr. DicQie Fuller-Looney, Women's Health is a definitive look at the relationship between digestive enzymes and hormones, and how hormonal imbalances in women can be traced back to enzyme deficiencies. This book is a logical, no-nonsense evaluation of the current medical approaches that overlook digestive enzymes as an ultimate solution. Dr. Fuller-Looney makes her case by showing that the symptoms of protein malabsorption are the same as the symptoms of menopause. DOWNLOAD HERE
