Them Changes....
We are at a crossroads in so many areas of our lives, and I know were not alone.

I'm grateful for the choices and decisions we will be making in the next few weeks.
Not easy ones but ones we need to meditate on, pray on, and trust in as we move forward to our destiny..

I believe that rest, lots of good food, water, meditation, sun & movement helps me to ass…

Easy Peasy Weekly DIY

This week I wanted to share a lovely DIY that will help you drown those winter blues (right down the drain)! Since I've been doing Esthetician related work for almost ten years some of my DIY's reflect that! And this time of year alot of peeps get a bit sad since sun is hiding & weather is cold! I'd luv to give everyone a piece of Florida Sunshine followed up with side of warm balmy breezes! So since I can't the next best thing is a luxurious quick & easy moisture infused Spa treatment!

This treatment is great one evening when you've had a long day & need something to change that vibe! You should come out of this treatment refreshed & renewed and drink lots of water to flush out all the toxins!

There's a great book I read as a kid In the 70's (even then I was into this stuff!) by Beverly & Vidal Sassoon A Year of Beauty and Health




Totally recommend it!

Ok here's today's DIY!

Keepin it Real

Image
Or getting real, making it real, being real, etc.
I haven't been and need to rat myself out big time!
No longer am I ashamed or embarrassed of my inadequacies... At least at this moment today.

My fears are:
Financial Insecurity
Abandonment
Failure
Being Alone
Sickness
Getting old
Dying
Living
Others dying
Losing Control
Relapsing




I'm not in control of most of the above, hence my inadequacy.
And the root of most of my fears.
FEAR=
False
Evidence
Appearing
Real

I'm not free in my mind. I'm prisoner of all that I fear.


I wanna be free.
I need to be free.
I deserve to be free.

Are u Free?
