The past few years have been enlightening. My outlook on the world has increasing changed with the help of some tremendously supportive people. Which brings me to my topic, can you heal without curing and cure without healing?
Tend Your Own Rocks
In a world that can slowly suck you down the proverbial rabbit hole quickly, it is nice to stop and concentrate on the things that keep you heading in the right direction.
The things that make you happy. The things that make you want to do more and BE more during your lifetime here on Earth.
Handy Guide to Portion Control
We can’t always pull out a full set of measuring spoons and cups to gauge our portions, which in my humble opinion is important to do in the early stages of re-training your brain to eat correctly. We all have our hands and they can be a handy guide to portion control.
In the End All You Have is Yourself
I had a discussion with one of my children who is very hard on themselves. That child is their own largest critic.
The result of our conversation is this child could have a big future if they would stop focusing on the big picture and concentrate on breaking everything down into the small steps toward achieving the goal.
Dealing With The Past So You Can Move On
Dealing With Your Past So You Can Move On. Each of us has a past and that past can come back to haunt us if it is not dealt with properly. Dealing with the past, allows you to move on. We can’t go back and change how we dealt with it or change the outcome of what has happened but WE CAN MOVE ON. Take a lesson from it, GROW from it and move on.
Acceptance and Toleration
This week the kids are off school for spring break. Instead of the traditional Spring Break vacation, my husband and I decided we were going to give the children experience days over the course of the week. Adding a little more culture into the children’s lives. Diversifying the teen’s acceptance and toleration to spend an entire week with their parents.
Edit the Commitments in Your Life
Edit the commitments in your life. Life had become a little overwhelming lately. It seems as if I have been making too many commitments. One downfall of mine, is the ability to say the word no. Taking on more jobs with work, home and friends. Time to edit the commitments in your life, Nikki!
Stretch, Breathe and Start Climbing
I’d like to start off the day by sharing a poem with you. After reading it, I am pretty sure you will relate. Maybe, you struggle with weight issues, maybe your mountain is your family, perhaps you have thought about a career change. We each have our own mountain to climb. So, stretch, breathe and start climbing.
Start Doing What’s Necessary Today To Achieve Weight Loss
Start Doing Whats Necessary Today To Achieve Weight Loss – Most of the time people are obsessed with the scale when they start on their weight loss journey. I have had a traditional love-hate relationship with that darn thing. I normally weigh myself once a month. Otherwise, I worry what I am doing isn’t working, get depressed and it sets me back.
Thyroid Exorcism – Thyroid Removal
Today marks one month since surgery. Half of me wanted to keep it private. The other half of me wanted to do what others had done. Post about it. So people like me, that had questions before surgery could read about it. After much thought, I chose to blog about my thyroid exorcism.

A Bend in the Road – Thyroid Problems
I posted on my Facebook page that I needed to down-size my workload for a small period of time. Really, it is just to take time out for the doctors to find out what is going on with my body.
The past few years it seemed that I was starting to slow down. That comes with age I was told. My aches, pains, being tired, agitation, not sleeping at night and loads of additional problems were of the mental and aging kind. The only real problem might be my plaguing diarrhea. Otherwise, my body was fine.
I tested a new way to clean my burner pans and stove top burner rings. For the most part, I have to say this works pretty well.
