Homeless Still Human

Homeless Still Human

I was 16 years old when I found myself without a home. At that time I didn’t understand the true meaning of what homelessness was. Growing up I always thought homeless people were drug addicts and people who never finished high school. My mom would always point out that I should never allow myself to be like the homeless people we would drive passed. I was taught being homeless was…

Carrot Cake Green Smoothie

Carrot Cake Green Smoothies

Green smoothies have become somewhat of a trend now. Lots of people are looking for ways to eat healthier and lose weight. For me green smoothies were just another smoothie but with leafy veggies. In some ways I guess it’s a great way to get your kids to eat more fruits and veggies and yourself as well. Even though green smoothies are the new “it” a lot of people still…

Day 6: Find Your Center

Namaste

Namaste! Life is a balancing act and it’s not always easy finding our center. Self-love = learning when to stop and rejuvenate. Find your center. For me, meditation and yoga helps me focus and find balance whenever i’m feeling unbalanced. Learning to refocus my energy and thoughts isn’t always easy but I take it one day at a time and do my best. How do you find balance? I would…

Day 5: It’s Okay To Not Be Okay Pt 2

self-love

Last year I wrote “it’s okay to not be okay” because I had forgotten that it was. When you’re always the “strong” person, the person everyone looks to and rely on, we often forget to let ourselves process whatever struggles we’re going through. Think positive! Be positive! People often think positive affirmations is what’s needed when you’re going through a hard time. But self-love is more than positive affirmations. It’s…

Day 4: Guilt-Free NO

Guilt-free NO

Growing up we were taught sharing is caring, and IT IS, but sharing everything isn’t caring for yourself. I used to be extremely guilty whenever I would say NO to someone, especially if they were close to me. It would weigh so heavy on my heart that I often would change my NO to YES. It was draining at times because I was always putting others before myself. It didn’t…

Day 3: You Didn’t Fail

31 days of self love

Not because it didn’t work out doesn’t mean you failed. Life is a constant journey. We’re forever growing and evolving. Often time when life doesn’t go as planned we beat ourselves up about it. We ask ourselves what when wrong and did we fail. Last year my world came crashing down when I found myself going through a separation. I couldn’t understand why it was happening and I felt like…

Pomberry Green Smoothie

Green Smoothie

Apart from being healthy, pomegranates are delicious. Pomegranates also have antioxidant, antiviral and anti-tumor properties. They are said to be good sources of vitamins, since it includes vitamin A, C and E, as well as folic acid. Mother nurture’s all natural vitamin. If you don’t like pomegranate or it’s not in season, you can use cranberry instead. After all, half a cup of cranberries contains only 25 calories! The health…

Day 2: It’s Okay To Ask For Help

help

Struggling in silence was better than reaching out for someone’s help. This was what I was taught growing up. For a  long time I struggled with this. I had to learn that asking for help was not a sign of weakness but strength. There’s nothing wrong with admitting that you need help, after all we can’t always do it by ourselves. When people think about self-love, they usually think it’s…

31 Days Of Self-Love

31 days of self love

What Is Self-Love? Two years ago I decided I would start blogging again and made a commitment to stick with it. I started out with my 31 days of self-love messages to introduce myself and share a little of my back story and my journey on this road of discovery. Earlier this year my website crashed and unfortunately I wasn’t able to recover my 31 days of self-love post. I…
