Definition of Beauty

I will be known for growing older, while kicking and screaming, and doing everything in my power to stall it, I saw this and it kinda takes that burden off. For a little while anyway. Thought I’d share!

To all of you beautiful women of the world, remember these words.

The Beauty of a Woman

For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.
People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived,
reclaimed and redeemed; never throw out anyone.
Remember, if you ever need a helping hand,
you’ll find one at the end of each of your arms.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands,
one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.
The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure
that she carries or the way she combs her hair.
The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because
that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.
The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole but the
true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul.
It is the caring that she lovingly gives – the passion that she shows.
And the beauty of a woman with passing years only grows.

How do you inspire others to see their inner beauty?

Think before you speak

Albert Einstein said everything is energy. Remember
his formula E=mc squared? He believed that energy and matter were interchangeable.
Everything is vibrating energy, including our bodies.
Every word and every thought carries a certain
vibrational frequency. A Japanese scientist, Dr.
Masaru Emoto, proved this when he did an experiment
with water. He found out that water is affected by
words. He took water droplets and exposed them to
various words. He froze them for three hours and then
examined the crystal formations under a microscope.
The results were totally astounding. When positive
words were spoken over the water, it formed beautiful
patterns. Negative words produced ugly patterns. Since
our bodies are approximately 72% water, we know that
our bodies are greatly affected by negative speech. He
did another experiment with rice where he spoke “I
love you” to a jar of rice for 30 days. To another jar
of rice, he spoke the words “You fool.” After 30 days,
the rice in the “I love you” jar was white and the
rice in the “You fool” jar was black and rotten.
(Facts taken from Dr. Emoto’s book “The Hidden
Messages in Water”.)

Now think about the things we’ve said to those we love, to ourselves? Sometimes we think a curt word is deserved and even makes us feel better, but we are hurting with our words more than we realize.

It can be scientifically documented that everything
has either positive or negative frequencies. Foods
even have frequencies. Fresh food has a higher
frequency than processed foods. On the other hand,
coffee has a negative frequency. Prayer actually
raises a person’s frequency by 15 MHz. If our
frequency gets low, we get sick. A healthy body has a
frequency between 62-68 MHz. If a person’s frequency
dips to 58 MHz., cold symptoms develop. Flu symptoms
appear at 57 MHz. Cancer may enter the body when the
frequency falls below 42 MHz. The process of dying
begins at 25 MHz. and goes to zero at death. (Facts
taken from Dr. David Stewart’s book “Healing Oils of
the Bible”.)

Take two minutes to watch this video and see for yourself. And let’s remember to hold our tongues and think before we speak.

Get to Snoozing BEFORE School Starts!!

No snoozing in class!!

Well it’s about that time, and if your family, is like most families, EVERYONE is ready for school to start! Now being prepared is another story! And now is the best time to get back into the groove ¬†of things!¬†It is a known fact that kids¬†need adequate sleep in order¬†¬†to perform their best at school. We want kids alert and full of energy! Don’t make the mistake of waiting to long to readjust those internal clocks because the early¬†alarm clock¬†will be ringing before you know it! If ¬†everyone hasn’t gotten on track then it won’t be a fun start to school and you may have a class snoozer! Most of us take advantange of sleeping in during summer break and if ¬†you’re like my kids and I bedtime tends to get later and later during summer time. So¬†most importantly in getting back to school mode, ¬†is getting back into the proper sleeping routine. I want to share some of the most helpful tips and advice I have come across over the last couple of years. ūüôā

  • First off let your kids know how important it is for them to get the proper amount of sleep and let them know that you too will be getting more sleep or making adjustments for the changing schedule. Setting a good example is always very important, even when it comes to good sleep habits!
  • Be aware of the days activities and their diet. Make sure they are getting some kind of exercise ( you know wear their butts out!) and eat well during the day. ¬†You don’t want them snacking to late and limit the caffiene and sugar intake especially after lunch time.
  • Establish a bedtime routine and be consistant with it, even through the weekends. Letting ¬†kids get invloved and making some choices helps them adjust to the change more eagerly. I let mine choose the order of things and what books we read. Just make sure you are doing wind down activities, No tv, computers or video games these are to stimulating, cut these out about an hour beforehand.
  • And last of all make it a goal for them to get into the routine ¬†and reward them for it when they do!!! Keep in mind that it should be a gradual change, you want to move up bedtime by 15 minutes each night. School age children on an average need anywhere from 9-11 hours of sleep a night. Ideally you want to be in your new routine almost a couple of weeks before school starts!! So let’s get to snoozing!! Here is a basic sleep chart for the different ages.¬†
