“DON’T JUST LIVE YOUR LIFE, CREATE IT!

Being happy is the cornerstone of all that you are! Nothing is more important than that you feel good! And you have absolute and utter control about that because you can choose the thought that makes you worry or the thought that makes you happy; the things that thrill you, or the things that worry you. You have the choice in every moment.
One of the happiest times experiences of my life… My trip to Mother Africa on this was a water safari above the Okavango Delta where pure reverse Osmosis water is underneath.

Mother Africa I wanna go home

I cant believe the way I fell in love with Africa, or no I do believe it. I have always wanted to go to Africa and somehow always thought I would live in Kenya one day. I never wanted to come home, I want to live on a game drive, discover the Masi and more countries in Africa. There’s a feeling in this place like no other. Some pics from Hwange National Park Zimbabwe.

JUST FOR TODAY~

STOP judging and evaluating yourself ~ STOP comparing yourself to other people it causes feelings of pride or inferiority. Enjoy who YOU are and share that with the people you love and those you don’t even know. When you share this kind of love and compassion for self you automatically change your brain waves AND your body sensations change along with that thought process. In Life we create patterns, some learned some not, we tend to forget that everything we tell ourselves is what we then believe and carry out.

JUST FOR TODAY or even the next TWO HOURS, every time a negative thought passes through your mind start reconditioning it to a joyful, loving thought. NOW you start the magical process of changing your patterns. The same thoughts/patterns programed in our heads have been repeated for so many years now rerouting them to the joyful, loving thoughts need practice and will take time. Make the time, start new thoughts, start new healthy habits…

JUST FOR TODAY, FRIENDS… Watch how you grow into the peaceful happy warrior you really are, the real YOU, not someone else’s idea of who you should be.

I’M WATCHING YOU…

I'M WATCHING YOU...

WELLINGTON POLO CLUB

Polo fashion, hats and all… If you’ve never been to to see a polo match I suggest you do. 

I’m always saying do something new especially on full moons. The full man in the moon guided me to the Wellington Polo grounds here in Palm Beach county, FL.

Super fun game, beautiful and funky people just being themselves on a beautiful day in the sun. 

Go do enjoy your life each and every day, it’s so important. Go inward and ask yourself what one thing is that is tangibil in the next couple of weeks, full moon or not, DO IT! You’ll be so happy, you gave yourself the gift of doing something new and accomplishing one thing you alway wanted to do.

GO AHEAD…

            GRATITUDE 

Gratitude by unknown
I am grateful for my limits that teach me patience and pace

I am grateful for challenge, defeat, and loss

They teach me hope is not a light at the end of the dark tunnel

It’s the ember burning within me that I forgot to fan

I am grateful to my teachers for introducing me to myself

I am grateful for my past that has delivered me to my present

I am grateful for all I have found and all I have lost. Both remind me I can live with and without

I am grateful for silence and for laughter And for my ears that can hear both

I am grateful to my heart that beats and breaks and heals

I am grateful for the fullness of my life. For the brief, heartbreaking, heartwarming fullness of life.

In the end by Tara Mohr
In the end you won’t be known for the things you did, or what you built, or what you said.

You won’t even be known for the love given or the hearts saved, because in the end you won’t be known.

You won’t be asked, by a vast creator full of light: What did you do to be known?

You will be asked: Did you know it, this place, this journey?

What there is to know can’t be written.
Something between the crispness of air and the glint in her eye and the texture of the orange peel.

What you’ll want a thousand years from now is this: a memory that beats like a heart– a travel memory, of what it was to walk here, alive and warm and textured within.

Sweet brightness, aliveness, take-me-now-ness that is life.
You are here to pay attention. That is enough.

NEW MOON TODAY!

🌑With the new moon today and the first of 2016. Start a new habit, an extra glass of water a day, washing your face every night, walking a mile or starting yoga. I suggest yoga as its been such a big part of my life and has helped me grow, mentally, spiritually and physically. Joining a gym does only so much, it’s still a wonderful thing to do for your body, don’t get me wrong. Going deeper and closer to your true authentic self is in the yoga. Go for it, go deeper and find closer relationship with YOU! Give it 28 days… Comment on my site for a free ‘Body by Brenda’ diet consultation and private yoga class via Skype.
