The Power of One: Jewel Joins the Fight with Cancer

The power of one quickly grew to thousands pulling together to make a difference.

Singer Jewel joins the fight to help a family in need after viewing a video featuring a school making a difference in their community.  Ric and Angie Thompson had not one, but two young daughters battling brain cancer. Shandi Mackintosh started a movement which touched the hearts of many as it quickly spread through the school, the community and then the world after Sharon Osbourne aired the story on her show.

STOP the Clock! Tips to Young and Healthy

Yep…it’s official…I’m old!  My High School 30th Class Reunion is tomorrow!   I’ll know how I measure up to the my classmate in less than 24 hours. 🙂  Hair cut and colored to hide the gray …check!  Nails done …Check!  New outfit …nope, couldn’t find anything I liked, so I’m wearing something old …check!

I don’t know if I like growing old. Don’t get me wrong, I love the elderly …I just don’t know if I want to be one.  For some reason the dying before the “depends” stage would be my first choice.  Second choice…..hmmmm before my top part touches my middle part and my middle part prevents me from bending over to tie my shoes.  So pretty much before I am old.  How old is old?  Well, so far the older I get the further I push the “I’m old” number back.

There are times I feel like I am still in high school and other times I feel like it was a life time ago.  When I look in the mirror it is a reminder that age is creeping up on me ….maybe not as fast as some, but speedier than I’d prefer.  I go to great lengths to slow down the clock.  What do I do?  Well, I do some kind of physical exercise everyday, I like to mix it up; bike ride, yoga, zumba (in the privacy of my own home) sit ups, push ups….oh yea don’t forget the arm “shaker” from “As seen on TV”   One of my most loved anti-aging secrets is the Nu Skin Galvanic Spa.  It’s a 5 minute face treatment 2-3 times a week. It keeps my dry skin moisturized all day and irons out the wrinkles.

I’m a conscious healthy eater without being fanatic …I have a weakness for french fries and chips and THAT I don’t want to give up anyway soon.  I eat a lot of fruits and vegetables and meat sparingly.  And since my husband is a hunter we eat lean, unadulterated meat such as; elk, moose, buffalo, deer.  The only meat I occasionally buy is chicken and fish.  I’ve never been a caffeine or alcohol drinker and rarely drink soda of any kind.  Water is my #1 choice  I also enjoy a fruit smoothy in the morning and I take Pharmanex LifePak Nano supplements every morning and night.  Since adding LikePak Nano to my diet my anti-oxidant score jumped up to 54,000…..if you are not familiar with that number….its a good one….and anti-oxidants slow down aging:)….I hope!

What I have discovered to be the best thing to feeling young, healthy and happy is to LAUGH everyday!  I laugh a lot, mostly at myself, but a laughs a laugh.

I’d love to hear YOUR secret to stopping the aging clock.  Tips to staying young, fit and healthy.  Most of all what makes you happy?  That’s truly what matters most!

Self Worth

Today on my Facebook status I posted the quote; 

“None of us come to earth to gain our worth; we brought it with us.” ~Sheri Dew.

Immediately after posting, the likes, commits and shares started.

This resonated.  Why?

Because people want to feel loved, accepted, valued.  But the world makes us think we have to look a certain way, act a certain way, weigh a certain amount, or have a certain title to be of value.  THAT is  a LIE!!

We brought our worth with us.

We don’t have to GAIN  it, it is already WITHIN us!

Know your great worth. Embrace your uniqueness.

You are an unrepeatable miracle…born with Greatness.

We brought it with us.
