From a POSITIVE PERSPECTIVE 👌

While we don’t have much control, we have choice! Let’s capitalize on that.

It’s difficult to ignore what’s going on all over the world, we are losing our relatives and friends to this aggressive virus, our peace of mind to media updates, and our jobs and businesses in a bid to stay home and protect ourselves from catching and spreading the Corona virus. I come of a part of the world where I believe hunger though is bigger an issue than the virus itself, most Ugandans don’t have the kind of investments that can stay running and bring them money while they stay at home, and one thing is for sure; they don’t have enough savings to carry them through these uncertain times either this explains the struggle to keep people at their homes although I think beating them is aggressive and a despicable act against humanity, i urge officials to take more humane measures.

Today morning I got myself thinking, while some people have the privilege to own homes or have shelter.. how are the street people dealing? Where are they staying, how are they feeding, how will they survive? This time is a great test of character, leadership is undergoing filteration, we about to separate hypocrites from true leaders! There is a dire need to take action, and to do it fast. Thanks to pastor kayanja for providing and supporting his people with essentials, some one help me ask pastor Yiga if he thinks this is a good time to be asking people for money instead of helping! And to the rest of religious, and political leaders it’s time to come to the front and supplement big on what philanthropists and good Samaritans are doing to make sure hunger and depression gives us a break while we deal with the virus at hand.

Meanwhile I want people to understand that the faster we all accept and stay at our homes ( except the essential service providers) the quicker we can all get back to our jobs and running our businesses…

.. Besides your forced stay at home won’t be so bad if you make a conscious choice rather than being beat off the streets or being shoot into hospital like the two unfortunate motor cyclists.

Here is some of the things you can do while prayerfully and patiently waiting for life to get back to normal; take an online class on that thing that you’ve always wanted to learn ( am personally going for digital marketing) finish that project you promised you were gonna get done with once you had time, read some books, reconnect with family and friends, meditate ( you will be gald you did) service your body ( sleep some good hours, work out, try yoga, mind your diet etc) play some fun games with fam, Netflix, repaint your room/ house, start a YouTube channel to encourage and show people how to go through these times, slow down, be present, listen to positive podcasts, assess your work, draw new strategies, set daily goals and whip them through, challenge yourself to do something new, cook….

If you happen to be on lock down with someone you’ve been trying to avoid, I have a msg for you;

Am grateful to have found a beautiful message from BILL GATES and am excited to share with y’all, i hope it will change your perspective, attitude and reaction to what’s going on in the world;

” I’m a strong believer that there is a spiritual purpose behind everything that happens whether that is what we perceive as being good or bad.

As I meditate upon this, I want to share with you what I feel corona/ covid-19 is really doing to us;

1- it is reminding us that we are all equal, regardless of our culture, religion, occupation, financial situation or how famous we are. This disease treats us all equally, perhaps we should to. If you dont believe me, just ask Tom Hanks

2- it is reminding us that we are connected and something that affects one person has an effect on another. It is reminding us that the false boarders that we have put have little value as the virus doesn’t need a passport. It is reminding us by oppressing us for a short time of those in the world whose whole life is spent in oppression

3- it is reminding us of how precious our health is and how we have moved to neglect it through eating poor nutrient manufactured food and drinking water that is contaminated with chemicals upon chemicals. If we don’t look after our health, we will ofcourse get sick

4- it is reminding us of the shortness of life and what is most important for us to do which is to help each other especially these who are old and sick. Our purpose is not to buy toilet roll

5- it is reminding us of how materialistic our society has become and how when in times of difficulty, we remember that it’s the essentials that we need ( food, water and medicine) as opposed to luxuries that we sometimes unnecessarily give value to

6- it is reminding us of how important our family and home life is and how much we have neglected this, it is forcing us back into our houses so we can rebuild them onto homes and to strengthen our family unit

7- it is reminding us that our true work is not our job, that is what we do not what we were created to do. Our true work is to look after each other, to protect each other and to be of benefit to one another

8- it is reminding us keep our ego in check. It is reminding us that no matter how great we think we are or how great others think we are, a virus can bring our world to a stand still

9- it is reminding us that the power of free will is in our own hands. We can choose to cooperate and help each other, to share, to give, to help, and to support each other or we can choose to be selfish, hoard, to look after only our self. Indeed, it’s difficulties that bring out our true colors

10- it is reminding us that we can be patient or panic. We can either understand that this type of situation has happened many times before in history and will pass, or we can panic and see it as the end of the world and consequently cause ourselves more harm than good

11- it is reminding us that this can either be an end or a new beginning, this can be a time of reflection and understanding where we learn from our mistakes, or it can be the start of a cycle which will continue until we finally learn the lessons we are meant to

12- it is reminding us that this earth is sick. It is reminding us that we need to look at the rate of deforestation just as urgently as we look at the speed at which toilet rolls are disappearing off the shelves. We are sick because our homes are sick

13- it is reminding us that after every difficulty, there is always ease. Life is cyclical and this is just a phase in the great cycle. We do not need to panic, this too shall pass

14- whereas many see the Corona virus/ covid-19 as a great disaster, I prefer to see it as a great corrector

This is to remind you of the important lessons that we seem to have forgotten and it is up to us if we will learn them or not ”

Thank you Bill Gates, and as I wind up I would like to leave you a food for thought that I got from my boyfriend also coach and financial advisor; the world is going digital, physical stores and offline retail is slowly but gradually becoming irrelevant. There is no need to go to the diner, supermarket or boutique anymore, we now mostly order almost everything online and get stuff delivered in the comfort of our homes. We don’t carry paper money as much either, we swap cards and use mobile money. The world is changing and so should you because one thing is clear, whether or not you’re ready change is coming and if you dont position yourself well, you’re going to struggle from far behind. Its a good time to learn how to work from home, what can you make or produce from your room, how to advertise online, how to run a business online, how to do deliveries, how to make online transactions and forth.

Blessed are the flexible fore they bend, twist, turn and not be broken by the Storm.

Thank you so much for reading, I would very much love to hear your thoughts on this please comment or reach out on;

To healing and leaving healthier and happier lives 🥂

Shad

Dear WOMAN, is it WORTH it?

Happy women’s day ladies, we gem, we lit and we definitely rock. I was meant to publish this on women’s day unfortunately I lost my grand mother a day before. I had traveled far uptown for inspiration, admist my notes preparation received calls that we are one less strong woman. The short notice departure and moment of grief left me unable to draft and publish on time. But thank God, here I am.

First off, like every other human being I am not perfect, I make alot of mistakes, learn and continue to grow! Following a sheer observation from around my community and a stretch I found that women have many challenges some of which am to express in proceed. But as I continue, I warn you not to take anything personally and remind you that I am not judging anyone, I really do care to see more happy, healthy and healed women, am simply a woman looking out for my fellow women

I have come up with the expression, the street is a big league and iam a small player. This is a humble reminder to stay in my lane and not be bamboozled into the latest trends and stuff. Ladies one of our biggest challenge today is Comparison!

Comparion, is the world’s biggest joy stealer and why most people are undeniably miserable and depressed, thinking about this sent some memories home, i remembered a song I used to love in my primary school, I’ve not cared to find out who the artist was or what the title is but these lines are firm printed in my DNA, it goes like this;

Can some body explain to me,

What everybody is trying be,

Living like a celebrity,

They do what they see on MTV..

Well, yeah I like my clodes, shoes, bags and gadgets designer or simply clean and cute but I am not about to sleep with a man to get money to buy some. That’s ridiculous, don’t we all agree? But why are girls doing it? C. O. M. P. A. R. I. S. O. N it’s not only making you bitter, resentful, jealous, envious and unproductive but also sick mostly with STDs, it comes with cancer too as returns from trying to win the perfect girl, perfect life contest.

I am trying to bring this on as lightly as possible but I am bewildered. Try to laugh at this;

The phone is the most relatable in my country, I always see memes on fb like; sell your kidney to buy the latest iPhone, or play 100 different trick on sugar daddy to get phone this or phone that! But let’s be honest, you’re not killing yourself because you dead dig the new amazing features on, you only want it because someone else got it and now you feel left out. Here is my advise though; DONT BREAK YOUR VAGINA, IF YOU WORK A LITTLE HARDER YOU CAN BUY ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING! Only then you’ll find out it’s not what you really need and materials don’t bring meaning, purpose, fulfillment or joy in your life.

At some point, “skinny girls are hot“.. You starve yourself close to death! Then “curvy is cool” .. You go for plastic surgery! “Brown skin trends” .. You bleach! Then “black is beautiful” .. You despair! My dear sister if you keep living up to the media buzz we won’t recognize you in a few years. The worthy question here is, the people you trying hard to impress, do you think they care? Accept and learn to love yourself. What you think of yourself holds the most value. We need more women walking with ” i am who I am, love me or leave me” attitude.

And oh, oh! There are some girls who lucky like me hold their standard high, and have much value and respect for themselves and their bodies, and so they work descent jobs and they don’t date for or chase money but they also do fall in the “comparison trap” and end up spending all there hard earned money on trying to look like a success to impress people they don’t know, who most certainty don’t care and might even be broke themselves instead of saving and investing to grow their business and live their dreams

Because one believes oneself, one doesn’t try to convince others.

Because one is content with oneself, one doesn’t need other’s approval.

Because one accepts oneself, the world accepts him or her — Lao Tzu

Cosmetics, we have people unconsciously refusing to accept and love themselves which has birthed to more challenges, in a bid to look like the model who doesn’t look like the model herself , thank you for making billions of dollar for the beauty industry which is okay until they trick you into thinking “you’re not good enough” so you keep running back for more and more except satsification never ensues

Like playing with your money and emotion is not enough, they now after your health, most of the cosmetics on market contain harmful chemicals and without a doubt your longevity and well being are at stake.

How much more do we have to go on to finally make you realise that your natural hair is the real deal. GOD don’t make mistakes but you using harsh chemicals to relax your hair is a big one.

Be absolutely conscious with the products you put in or on your body!!!!!!!!

Make up is absolutely okay when you use it occasionally to compliment or flatter your look for a big occasion or gathering but using it day in and day out, especially to hide your insecurities is a lame move. Take that mask off Woman, YOU’RE ENOUGH! you’re uniquely imperfectly and beautifully you. That’s your super power. Snap out of the lie and come take over the world.

Feninism, talking about taking over the world, some women take it literally. To better understand where I am coming from, let me start by asking you a question, what is the purpose of a woman’s creation? In the beginning Hawa ( Eve ) was created because Adam was bored, he needed company, comfort! How things changed so fast? I’ll tell you! When women started to think that they can be equals to men. Wait, don’t you know that you were created from a man’s rib? How can that equation ever balance without causing a menace?

I am not implying that women have limits, what a man can do a woman can do better as long as she runs back in time to take care of her babies ( kids and husband) because like it or not, that’s the fundamental reason for your creation!

Women are exalted spiritually, our strength is in our tenderness we have no real need to be physically the same with men. Let’s fight worthy battles fore what we need is to instill values, nurture and enable growth and development in our homes instead of trying to be like men.

If we had more women teaching their baby boys that; a woman is a precious gift one to be handled with utmost respect, loved and adored. We wouldn’t have men treat women like animals but blame yourself because you were out trying to work 5 to 7 like a man you forgot to be a mother, now we have young girls who know and understand their power but have no clue how to use it the right way and young men who feel disempowered and in a fight to gain their respect and position that’s how we clashed

What you call gender based violence, i call ego based violence, we have a lot of women dying because men these days were not nurtured at all! Like playing a video game but skipped tutorial, they’re fumbling all over the place, you ignored them! You were busy trying to attain status, but how is an empowered woman six feet under a success? We needed someone to tell this boy that a real man never hits a woman. But ahem, you were busy teaching the girl a man should never hit you! But every time she says you don’t beat a woman, she gets slapped in the face, i think its about time you give the boy child his needed attention.

When it comes to divorce, it’s obvious two captains can’t sail a ship! Everything needs a leader, one who makes the final decision, who has the final say! We have now experienced the mess that comes out of trying to run a family equally! How are rules supposed to be implemented without a leader to impose them. Quote me well, I said a leader not a dictator!

Imagine for a second a world where a man and woman both know their responsibility in a home, know when to lead and when to follow. Respect each other, listen to each other. They both support and help each other to grow to become the best version of themselves, bring there kids up to together. They have their egos in check and choose love and understanding over scores. I want to live in a world close to that

My heart breaks for single parents and the kids who have to grow up with one not both but sometimes it’s better to walk away from something that doesn’t serve you anymore. Ladies set your priorities straight do you want to be men or to build strong and happy families? One thing is clear, you won’t get both and so choose wisely.

Thanks for coming this far, actually this turned to be one of the shortest but heaviest to put into words! It’s our responsibility as woman to make the world a better place, we have immense powers and fires that burn within us let’s direct it all towards good. It’s not us against men, it’s us for us making us better complimenting each other, standing up and fighting for what we believe in as long as it’s worthy. Please stop wasting you’re energies worrying, complaining and comparing and i dont feel I can ever say this enough but accept and learn to love the woman in the mirror. Most importantly be happy and stay fly.

Grit, or spirit?

Creativity is not a magical act of inspiration, it’s the result of hardwork and dedication – The creative habit by Twyla Tharp

There people with half your talent, riding waves and building big brands because they had the balls to suck at something new, the self discipline to do what they gotta do even on days they didn’t feel like, the courage to get back on their feet after big defeats and the resilience to stick until they reaped the gold

Am unsure how long it would have taken me to finally figure that “drawing is not a gift for the choosen few” if I hadn’t read the book Mindset: The new psychology of success – Carol.S.Dweck recommended by Bill gates. Until then may be I would have gone to the ground convinced that I can never ever draw, because let’s be honest I am so horrible at it ( hogwash! Nonsense, there are no natural geniuses) you can’t begin to imagine the look on my face when I learnt that with practise over time you can acquire the skill set to do just about anything

Below are the before and after self portraits of people that took a short course in drawing from the author, Betty Edwards. Before, when they just entered her course and after, five days later when they had completed it ( from Mindset – Carol.S.Dweck)

I don’t care for drawing or sports for that matter but even though I love writing and speaking, I didn’t think I’m capable of having a brilliant article to my name or making it to a big stage in a hall filled with thousands, I bet we all have that i am not good enough syndrome that lingers through day and haunts us by night which can only be silenced by confidence, and confidence my dears comes with preparation. If you are going to write a paragraph, read a chapter from a book and learn new words everyday, eventually you’ll most certainly become great at writing. The biggest challenge though is, we want to be, without becoming!

I know a better actor than Will Smith, a better singer than Taylor swift, a better football player than Christiano Ronaldo, a better basket ball player than Kobe Bryant, a better writer than J.k Rowling, I can speak better than Sheila Gashumba, Malaika Nyanzi and Flavia Tumusime put together! But what separates them from the rest? Ladies and gentlemen, it’s their Will power! They might have the ability but it’s their boldness, hardwork and persistence that highlights them from other talents.

You can’t be good at everything but you most certainly can be the greatest at something!

You can achieve anything you set your mind to! If you’re crazy enough to think it’s possible, then it’s possible, you just have to find a way that works. It comes with trial and error, failing, fixing, starting over, losing some, sacrificing others… the bigger percentage of the human race is not up for the challenge. They want to get what they want but not willing to do what it is necessary to get it. You’re capable but the million dollar question is, are you willing?

Are you willing to stay up at night when everybody goes to sleep? Are you willing to train more hours after everyone has left? Are you willing to leave your precious family behind? are you willing to jump out of your cozy comfy bed every morning? Are you willing to endure the pain, shame and misjudgement? Are you willing to invest when all your fellows are buying into the latest trends? Are you willing to be laughed at and called crazy? Are you willing to cheer your own self and keep going when no one believes in you? Are you wiling to invest in learning to acquire more skills to help you manouver here and there? Are you willing to take risks? Are you willing to be broke for sometime? Are you willing to try again after it all burns to the ground?

Earlier this year, I took a break from Mcing to grab a bottle of water, a man probably in his late 50s walked up to me and asked, “at your age, how do you know all this?”. I love compliments as much as I love criticism so I smiled and answered, ” I don’t know, it’s a gift” it’s only after he walked away that I realised part of that is not true, I have been told all my life I have a beautiful voice, that’s a natural gift that am grateful for but what comes out of my mouth is craft and pure creativity. I have to read alot of books, listen to audios, watch videos, mimic mentors, write, re write, write again, re phrase, run to Google for sec, go through my notes, make voice notes, make a little more, send them out to friends for review and then re do.. It’s alot work!

I guess what am trying to zero down to is I might have a “the voice” ( grit, natural ability) but I have to put in a great amount of work to get people to listen to what I have to say, and I am willing! now, that, that is the spirit.

You have to work hardest for the things you love the most. It’s all about what you want to look back and say – Billie Jean King. You can look back and say ” I could have been” polishing your unsued endowments like trophies or you can look back and say, ” I gave my whole for the things that I valued” – Carol.S.Dweck

Food is Medicine! Your medicine should be Food…

You’re what your eat!

Working out is great, having enough sleep is awesome, cleansing, toning, moisturing, exfoliating and having professional facials and massages is amazing, anti aging creams are a boom but when it comes to the body, the single most important thing is what you put into it!

Your inner world reflects your outer world, so you can do the outside work all you want but as soon as your body is not getting enough of all the needed nutrients.. It’s pretty much not helping

I carefully used the word “enough” because insufficient is equally as bad as too much or excess! You have got to make sure you BALANCE YOUR DIET lest you risk your well being

What you choose to put into your body is more than just filling the empty space in your stomach, if you put living food in your body it will give you life and if you kill the food that goes into your body that dead food will also take life from you.

Processed foods ain’t really food, they might fill up the space but they contain harmful chemical substances which cause constant chronic low levels of inflammation, non metabolism, toxin build up and tissue damage and this is linked to alot of health harms as in the paragraphs that follow

_People who eat lots of ultra-processed foods are more likely to develop heart disease and to die sooner than those who stick with foods in their original form, two large studies conclude.

Heavily processed foods are often high in sugar, fat and empty calories. Consuming lots of these foods has long been linked to an increased risk of a wide variety of health problems that can lead to heart disease or an early grave, such as obesity, high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, cancer and depression. Read more here

With the help of Neslihan Nur Turk, let’s dive into nutrition and try to understand it better;

Taking the necessary nutrients for the body and benefiting them is called nourishment. Nourishment, which is an indespensible need for our lives, begins in the mouth and continues in the digestive Tract. The food that we eat is absorbed by the intensines, they reach the blood and cells by way of vascular system ( veins and arteries). As for the part that is not of use to the body is excreted as feces and urine.

The main purpose of nutrition is to maintain health and ensure healthy growth and development. However, with the tastes and smells of food we eat, there are very pleasing aspects that make us happy and appeal to the palate. Therefore it is necessary that we have good nourishment Inorder to fill our stomachs, be happy and lead a healthy life. This is because having sufficient and balanced nutrition is the first rule of being healthy

There are dozens of nutrients that are necessary for us through out our lives. If the body can’t get one or more of them, or if it gets too much, difficulties related to growth and development will be experienced and health will begin to detoriarate. This is called unbalanced diet.

People with unbalanced diet are heavy and reluctant in their movement, their skin and general appearance is un healthy, and they are very thin or very fat. They always talk about various pains and are always found to be in a state of complaint. Such people are also in distress from a psychological point of view, either having an overly stressed or an overly relaxed attitude. This is because unbalanced nutrition harms the whole structure of a person.

In contrast those who have a balanced and sufficient diet appear healthy, have vibrant and flexible bodies, and have beautiful skin. These people have vibrant and shinny hair and healthy nails and eyes. There muscle and bones are healthy and their psychology is balanced. They have a strong constitution that is usually not sick. Their growth and development is normal, in accordance with their height and weight.

Now let’s examine individually each food item that our lord has given us and that is necessary for us through out our lives:

DRINKING WATER,

Organic components found in water are the main nutrients for the human body! Most of blood, brain, muscle and 22% of bones is water. The digestive and transportation of nutrients to cells, the proper functioning of cells, organs and tissue, the disposal of toxic substances from the body, the control of body temperature, and many such functions are carried out with the help of water

Everyday about 2.5 litres are discarded from the body as urine, sweat, feces and through respiration Tract. It is important to compensate for this diminishing amount and consume enough water in a day.

While it differs from person to person, according to factors such as age, sex, amount of physical activity, height, and metabolism rate, it is said that the necessary daily amount of water is 2 litres.

VITAMINS ,

This food has not only taste stored inside it, but also healing! It is classified into two groups; fat soluble ( vitamin A, D, E and K ) which are helpful when dissolved in fat or oil. Therfore oil is needed for these vitamins to be used in a healthy manner. The healthier oil is virgin olive oil. These are found in; apricots, oranges, plums, asparagus, parsley, spinach, carrots, celery, tomatoes, fish oil, fish, eggs, butter, liver, meat, oats, cabbage, zucchini, lettuce, spinach, egg yolks, potatoes, beans, Peas etc

Water soluble vitamins ( vitamin B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, C) which are easily dissolved in water. The excess of it is not stored in the body but discarded as urine. For this reason there is no risk posed in taking too much due to a very quick depreciation. Found in soybeans, coconut, grapefruits, lemon, bananas, avacados, leafy greens, apples etc

More on each vitamin and its function in the body

PROTEINS,

This is the basic building block of all living organisms. It is of the utmost importance for the growth and development of our bodies and in resisting infections. It is necessary for the quick healing of wounds, as well as for the making of new tissue. A diet with insufficient proteins may result in liver and kidney disease.

While protein intake that is less than necessary may be the cause of deteriorating health, more protein than is necessary may turn into fat in the body, and thus cause a weight problem.

High protein foods should be consumed on a regular, daily basis. So let’s have a look at which foods we can get proteins from; red meat, fish, milk, eggs, cheese, yogurt, Haricot beans, chickpeas, kidney beans, lentils and walnuts

CARBOHYDRATES,

These are organic compounds consisting of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen. We get most energy we need to move, think, and fight disease from carbohydrates. The most important task of carbohydrates is to create energy. They are stored in the body, and the extra amount taken is converted into fat. In people who get enough carbohydrates, the body does not need to use proteins to make energy. Carbohydrates also ensure that enough water and electrolytes are found in the body. They help maintain the acid-base balance in the blood

They are divided by their nature into three groups; monosaccharides, disaccharides and polysaccharides.

Monosaccharides are known as simple sugars. _Glucose, which exists as free form in the blood of human body used as a source of energy especially by the brain and red blood cells. Grapes and foods produced from grapes are a good source of glucose

_fructose ( fruit sugar) it is found in honey and molasses made from fruits like grapes, figs and mulberries

Disaccharides are three types: sucrose ( table sugar), lactose ( milk sugar) and maltose ( malt sugar)

_sucrose is derived from sugar canes and sugar beets

_lactose is naturally found in milk

Polysaccharides are three kinds: starch, glycogen and cellulose

_starch is formed from the combination of several glucose molecules. It is found in plant seeds and tubers. Wheat, potatoes, rice, peanuts, carrots and corn are foods that contain high levels of starch

_glycogen is stored in the body and kept ready to be used as back up energy source. It is mostly found in liver and muscles

_cellulose is found in plants. It is the indigestible part of food. By increasing movement, it helps with the comfortable functioning of the intestines. It is a remedy for constipation and makes you feel full. Food products made from whole grains, fruits and vegetables eaten raw and shelled, especially strawberries and bananas, are a good source of cellulose.

FATS,

Fats are extremely important for the membrane that envelops and protects the cells. After carbohydrates, they are the second indispensable source of energy for the body. Also, fats ensure that vitamins A, D, E and k can be used in the body. Because these vitamins are fat soluble, and fat consumption is very important for this reason. Health of the skin, hair and inner and outer organs is largely dependant upon the balance of fat. Some vital hormones are synthesized from fat.

Fats are divided into two groups;

Saturated fats, these are animal origin and if too much is taken, it may cause cholesterol levels to rise and lead to heart disease. They are found in butter, animal fat, milk, and according to an opinion which is still being urgued – eggs.

As for unsaturated fats, they are of vegetable origin. They are responsible for keeping cholesterol levels low, brain development and cell structure.

Unsaturated fats found in olive oil and peanuts are especially medicinal. In addition to those, omega 3 found in walnuts, hazelnuts, cabbage, spinach, broccoli, lettuce, fish and fish oil, along with omega 6 found in sunflower seeds are extremely necessary for our bodies. Omega 3 helps with the fluidity of the blood, while omega 6 helps with coagulating of blood when necessary. Especially for healthy blood circulation it’s necessary that these two types of oil be consumed regularly

With oils produced from various plants, it is possible for us to feel vigorous and tranquil. Many types of oils such as almond oil, oregano oil and lavender oil, with their inherent healing properties and emission of pleasing fragrances, are a means of providing good rest and comfort for both our bodies and souls.

It is also necessary to explain the following: it is harmful to force your body to digest margarine and refined oils. Especially these two types of oil can cause vascular occlusion ( the blocking of blood vessel). The body however, recognizes and uses what is natural. Therefore, we should consume virgin olive oil or enough amount of any type of natural oil.

MINERALS,

Minerals are inorganic substances that the body cannot make on its own. Working together with vitamins, they become good for the body. For this reason, getting enough vitamins also means that we benefit enough from minerals; especially for the children in the growth and development phase, vitamins are extremely important.

Minerals contribute greatly to the development of the nervous and reproductive systems, the functioning of muscles, the formation of blood, the regulation of the pulse and blood pressure and maintaining the fluid balance in the body.

Minerals such as zinc, calcium, iron, iodine, magnesium, sulfur, phosphorus, sodium, and potassium are especially necessary for the human body. All of these minerals are absorbed through the small intestines; some are then stored in the necessary cells, and some are excreted in the urine

A deficiency in minerals may affects the body negatively and result in the development of many health problems.

Now in order to best understand. Let’s take a closer look at some of the minerals and way they help out bodies

In conclusion, food eaten sufficiently and in a balanced way will heal your body and cure you completely of any ailment . The challenge is that now people are eating more processed food or dead food, precisely, poison! which is damaging their internal organs one after the other

And to make matters worse, when problems like high blood pressure, diabetes and cardiovascular problems, cancer etc occur they run to doctors who give them more toxins disguised as relief or pain killers, supplementing on the toxin build up they already have🤦‍♀️this is so absurd as now side effects from prescription drugs is among the top killers

It’s not too late though to make a healthier choice, I believe the right way to restore your health is to follow these steps using natural foods;

_Cleansing, to remove toxins from your body ( i use green tea which contains leaves of gynostemma, lotus leaves, Chinese knotweed roots and semen cassia)

_Replenishing or nourishing to replace the lost nutrients in the body ( I use spirulina’ every 100g of these contain 65g of proteins, 18% carbohydrates, 5%fat and 7% minerals’ I use it along side cordyseps)

_strengthening the immune system, so it can resist and fight infections ( I use calcium and zinc food supplements )

_balancing, for proper functioning of all organs in the body ( I use Blood circulatory massager/BCM)

Thanks you bunches for reading, please JOIN THE WELLNESS MOVEMENT; say no to chemicals, say no to plastics, go green, do natural.

Vitamins are classified into two groups as those which dissolve in fat or water. Now let’s examine each one individually and in which foods they are found so that we may find them easily when we search for them:

*Fat-soluble vitamins:

Vitamins in this group may be helpful when dissolved in fat or oil. Therefore, oil is needed for vitamins A, D, E and K

Vitamin A: is a much needed vitamin which increases the body’s resistance to infections, supports healthy growth and reproduction, and especially necessary for bones, teeth, guns, skin, nails, and eyes.

The excess amount of it is not discarded through urinating, but stored in the body. In case of its excessive usage. It may cause a change in skin color.

Vitamin A is found in fruits like apricots, oranges, and plums, and in vegetables like asparagus, parsley, spinach, carrots, celery, lettuce and tomatoes

Vitamin D: helps the body meet its calcium needs in a balanced way by helping the bones and teeth to hold calcium and the small intensines to absorb it in a healthy way.

Fish oil, fish, eggs, butter, liver, meat, and oats are especially good sources of vitamin D. For this vitamin to be effective in the body, sunlight is necessary. No matter how much vitamin D a person takes, if he does not take any sunlight, he will be faced with the problem of calcium deficiency, this is because the sunlight activates vitamin D and strengthens the bones and teeth by helping with calcium absorption

In the form of a chain, each link helping the other, knowing and benefiting each other, these three elements ( the sun, vitamin D and calcium) are of utmost importance in human health

Vitamin E: is a strong antioxidant which is a substance that repairs the damage or corrosion in the body caused by various harmful substances. It ensures the protection of the cell structure, and helps wounds heal faster. It protects from cancer and hardening and blocking of arteries. It beautifies skin. It strengthen the immune system. Taking enough of it is extremely important for speeding up sexual development during adolescence. It has been proven that it may block age associated memory loss, that is Alzheimer’s disease.

It is found in grains, green vegetables, spinach, zucchini, lettuce, green tomatoes, pine needles, green peppers, cabbage, Brussels, sprouts, cauliflower, beans, Peas, yogurt, egg yolks, kiwis, blueberries, and green tea

As for k2, it has the important task of helping with bone formation, maintaining bone health, and preventing calcium buildup in the arteries. It is produced by good bacteria in the stomach

*water-soluble vitamins:

Vitamin B and C are easily dissolved in water. The excess amount of it is not stored in the body and is discarded through urine. It is possible to lose a great part d these vitamins in the stages of food preparation, cooking, storing and heating. Therefore foods containing B and C group vitamins must be very carefully prepared and used immediately.

Vitamin B1: is a digestive aid and prophylactic ( something that prevents or contributes to the prevention of disease) it is necessary for the normal functioning of the nerve tissue. It converts blood sugar into energy. It is important for the health of a heart. Just as it is food for indigestion. It also keeps one clear headed and has a healthy effect of neurologically speaking. For body to make use of carbohydrates, vitamin B1 is neccesary, while tobacco, alcohol and sugar destroy this vitamin

It is found in soybeans, asparagus, cabbage, carrots, celery, cocoa, grape fruits, lemons, parsley, pomegranates, radishes, oats, corn, bananas, rice, whole wheat bread, Peas, (roasted) peanuts, potatoes, chicken, steak, liver, milk, wheat, raisins, cauliflower and chickpeas

Vitamin B5: is important for the healthy operations of the adrenal glands and in the antibody production. To live without muscles weakness, headaches, and vertigo, it is neccesary to take a sufficient amount of vitamin B5

Chicken, hazelnuts, wheat and eggs are a known source of this vitamin

Vitamin B6: is involved in the use of proteins and fat in the body, energy production, healthy functioning of the central nervous system, and the production of hemoglobin. If someone can’t get a sufficient amount of vitamin B6 and the food he or she eats is high in proteins but low in carbohydrates, the possibility of the formation of kidney stones would be very high

Therfore high amount of proteins require the consumption of high amount of vitamin B6. If a person is affected by moodiness without cause, irritability, insomnia, forgetfulness, and trembling if the hands, it means they have vitamin B6 deficiency

Sine sources of vitamin B6 are wheat, whole wheat flour, vegetables, lettuce, Barley, soybeans, oats, bananas, turkey, chicken, fish, steak, potatoes, oranges, milk, spinach, Peas, walnuts and avacados

Vitamin B12: has an effect on the regular operation ot the nervous system and the formation of red blood cells. Especially for the production of red blood cells, it is absolutely necessary. It also helps with the use of fatty acids in the body

It is found in lamb, liver, fish, eggs, chicken, skim milk, non fat yogurt and leafy greens.

Vitamin C: is the most delicate vitamin, it is used up very quickly and loses its value. Therefore, foods containing vitamin c should not be put in contact with metal, be worked on too muck with a knife, grater or blender, and should be consumed without waiting too long

Sliced apples browning in a short time and the taste of a squeezed grapefruit changing in a short time may be given examples of the fragility of vitamin C

It strengthens the blood vessels and has protective effects against infection and toxins. For some vitamins in the body to be used, it is necessary that an amount of vitamin C be taken every day. Also it’s necessary for the calcium in the blood to be diffused through out the body. It also has an effect on the health of bones and blood vessels, the management of pain in the joints and back, gum health, and strength and resistance

Minerals

Inorder to better understand let’s take a closer look at some of the minerals and the way they help our bodies:

Zinc: this mineral is extremely important for the blood, red blood cells, pancreas, liver and some muscles and bones. A sufficient amount of zinc must be taken for the healthy development of the reproductive organs, the healing of wounds, and for lasting healthy senses of taste and smell

Zinc deficiency may result in problems such as susceptibility to disease, the thinning and formation of white spots on the nails, and the retardation of growth and development. Oil seeds, cocoa, oysters, egg yolks, liver, meat, and legumes are examples of good sources of zinc

Iron: iron is necessary for the synthesis of hemoglobin, the part of the blood which transports oxygen to the tissues of the body. It is also necessary for transport of oxygen to tissues. The disposal of carbon dioxide through respiration, keeping the immune system strong, energy consumption and growth. Iron deficiency is very common because in many mothers iron stores are inadequate.

Lack of iron in the body brings about resuits such as fatigue, anemia, hair loss, nail shape distortion, and weakening of mental ability.

Iron is found in red meat, chicken, fish, dried legumes, eggs, dried fruits, and molasses. It is also found in vegetables such as spinach, Peas, and purslane

Iodine: it has an important role in growth and development, as well as in the production of hormones involved in the maturation of reproductive system. It is essential for hair, skin, nails and bone health it is also involved in the making of thyroid hormones

Iodine deficiency may cause a decline in mental activity, drying and flaking of skin, constipation, weakening of heart beat, a decline in fertility

Purple carrots, salt, seaweed, seafood, garlic and asphagus are good examples of iodine source

Calcium: is needed for the development of bones, blood pressure regulation, blood clotting, and transmission of neural messages, as well as for the proper functioning of the muscles

Joint pain, brittle nails, weakening of bones, an increase in tooth decay, and heart palpitation are common causes of calcium deficiency. Long term calcium deficiency causes short stature. In case of calcium deficiency in blood, muscle spasms, cramps and chills may occur

Sesame seeds, dried figs, molasses, purple carrots, green leafy vegetables, and especially milk and milk products are good sources of calcium

Magnessium: a healthy functioning metabolism, effective use of energy, proteins production and cell proliferation are affected by magnesium. Inorder to use the calcium and pottasium in the body, magnesium is necessary

Incases of magnesium deficiency, undue tension, depression, loss of appetite, heart rhythm irregularities, cramps, ringing in the ears, insomnia and other problems may be experienced

Walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds, dates, dried figs, dried legumes, grains, bananas, arugula, spinach, lettuce, and parsley are known to be good sources of magnessium

Sulphur: is necessary for energy production, the formation of bones and teeth, cell growth and repair, and the healthy functioning of the heart and kidneys.

Incases of sulfur deficiency, problems such as general weakness, fatigue, kidney disease and intestinal problems and late emergence of teeth are likely to occur

Red meat, milk, chicken, fish, eggs, grains, and dried legumes are sources of Sulphur. Also natural springs that contain high levels of Sulphur may have an extreme healing effect

Sodium: the body to store the water that it needs, muscle contract in a healthy way, and blood pressure is regulated, by way of providing for exchange of water and electrolytes in the cells, with the help of sodium

Therfore, it is necessary the body be surrounded with enough sodium. Especially as a result of sweating, the body experiences loss of sodium along with water. For this reason it’s important that a person who sweats replenish his or her body, not only with water, but also salt

Chemically Cautious!

Do you ever sit down quietly and contemplate on how chemicals dramatically affect your health? I wasn’t black and white on this until Dr.Sebi’s story came out following the death of one famous rapper the late Nipsey Hussle. In his own words;

“… the African people didn’t have a doctor! They didn’t need him, because they didn’t have any of that substance that would violate the biology of the individual. So how long did they live? Do you and I know how long Africans lived in the forests before the chemical people came? ” Dr. Sebi.

This was an eye opener, i started to look around and observe more carefully! Our ancestors did live longer, no doubt! But do you and i stand a chance? Our lives are immensely devoured by chemicals, i feel like it’s too late to go back now, the least we can do is try to be a little cautious, avoid and swap a few things here and there and pray for the best otherwise every breath is slowly killing us!

Last year, i stopped drinking soda, relaxing my hair and i started using chemical free toothpaste and pads but that’s like taking a bucket full off the ocean because i am still exposed to alot more harmful chemicals like; polluted air, according to WHO – as the world gets hotter and more crowded our engines continue to pump out dirty emissions, and half the world has no access to clean fuels or technology ( e.g stoves, lamps) the very air we breath is growing dangerously polluted: nine out of ten people now breath populated air which kills 7 million people every year. Read more here

House hold equipments, most of the stuff we use at home contains chemicals which affects our health negatively forexample; mattresses, sofas, carpets, cookware, swimming pools, beverage cans, pans, foils, lamps, batteries, candle lights, air fresheners, shower curtains, old paint, cleaning detergents, insect repellants etc

Also, cosmetics, shampoo, perfumes, nail polish, lotions, deodorants, hair spray, face washes, tooth brushes, bathing soap etc

Chemicals are also in our drinking water especially the bottled one and most foods especially packaged and canned (for example meat, diary, fish, chicken, beans) flour, coloring agents, alcohol, refined oil. And the veggies are not exceptional!

Medicines, most of them are made in labs by mixing together a number of chemicals and majority of FDA approved drugs have very serious potential side effects and can cause harm to organs and systems in the body such as throat, stomach, lungs, liver, pancreas, heart, brain, nervous system and also birth to different cancers.It’s important that you know what happens when the toxic substances get into your body and which one affects which part and how the reaction can be different for every individual.. Read more here

Do you and I see how death is rounding up on us, what next?

First off, swap! for every chemically infested products that has a natural, organic, herbal, plant based, sulphate free or eco friendly option, substitute for the latter.

Forego! If you dont really need and you can do without something that contains chemicals, please do! You can skip relaxing your hair, bleaching your skin, soda, alcohol, go with out make up, give up the nail polish among others

Infuse in healthy practises in your daily routine like breathing right, drinking enough water and exercising this will help to flash out harmful toxins from the body. Add green tea to fasten and make the detoxification process more effective ( I recommend LIPID METABOLISM MANAGEMENT TEA, it comes with alot other health benefits)

Opt for Eastern medicine, chinese have the largest world population and a really low mortality rate i think its high time we adapt to their way of healing which focuses on restoring health using natural ingredients instead of curing a disease as western medicine which has proven to come with alot side effects which are essentially worse than the disease they intend to cure. read more on eastern medicine here

Follow now, Fathom later!

This is one path that you want to follow through! It all started with praying, for a very long period in my life I was lost, felt a lone and stuck much like I was drowning further and further sinking away in the depth of sorrow, confusion, bitterness, hardship, disappointment, hate and failure until I decided I had had enough, I started to search for answers realised then that I was far from home and I had only one place to go “on my knees” and pray. It had been a while since I last prayed, 4 years to be exact ( those were the darkest days of my life) but I got my mat out and prayed again, prayer is truly a light! Hence forth I have become all round a better person, I have seen big transformations in my life, brilliant ideas flowing though my head one after the other, I have received more love, more friendship, more joy, more happiness, more money… Here is the “Ps” that I believe can transform lives;

Pray.

Prayer is the bridge that connects you to infinite knowledge and wisdom, to bounty and limitless success. It is a source of joy and happiness that never runs out, a firm foundation for courage and the basis of all miracles

Personality.

Thrive to be better than the person you were yesterday. The faster you can develop and work on yourself spiritually, mentally and physically the faster you can develop financially and have better relationships. I think personality is really about habits ( Form good habits) like; Read books, exercise, forgive, be grateful, cultivate Optimism, Nurture relationships, practise acts of kindness, attend seminars and workshops, meditate, make self affirmations and declarations, listen to positive podcasts, get a mentor, hang with grateful, inspired, action and result oriented people who are smarter than you, have a sense of humor, be humble, become more silent, take things slow, live simply.

Purpose.

We are all here for a reason and that is to give and share our gifts and talents to serve humanity! Jay Shetty is here, to help everyone realise that when they serve they heal themselves. if we can create a world where everyone feels that their kindness, their empathy, their love towards others will only be reciprocated to them even if they don’t know where it comes back to them from. if we can create a world where everyone acts in that way every single day with every single person with a deep purpose that would be a huge outcome.

Positivity.

A positive mind like Napoleon Hill has it, is a favorable abode for the state of mind known as “faith” discourage and eliminate negative emotions by having the right perceptive ( choose to see things from a positive angle) have the right attitude ( always choose to think and feel good, be grateful) and have the right reaction ( always choose to do the right thing no matter how hard it is) That is what it means to be positive.

Possibility.

Everything in this world is possible! There are no limits except the ones we acknowledge! Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve. We wouldn’t conceive of miracles if non ever happened. There is no shortage of blessing, everything you want is in the head. What you think, you become! All things are ready, if the mind be so -Napoleon Hill

Power.

Life is not happening to you, it’s responding to your thoughts. You’re creating your own reality. Everything that exists in your life first lived in your head. Your life is as beautiful as your mind. Visualize what you want, vividly and consistently and it will appear right before your eyes.

Practise.

If wishes were horses, everyone would ride. Unfortunately alot of people want to get what they want without doing what is necessary to get it! It’s the action and effort that separates successful people from unsuccessful one. Have the self discipline to do what you gotta do everyday regardless of how you feel.

Patience.

Rome was not built in one day. Great things take time! Remember “easy come, easy go” what we acquire easily, we esteem lightly! Be patient, Darby quit three feet from the vein of gold. Hold on a little longer, when you feel like giving up; give more. Fore often the difference between a winner and loser is no more than a few minutes of fortitude and resistance.

Persistence.

All people who are successful loved what they did so they could persevere when it got really tough, “it’s alot of hardwork and constant worrying if you don’t love it, you’re gonna fail” Steve Jobs. And so, find your passion cleave onto it until it betides. Practical dreamers donot quit, if you fall nine times, get up ten

preach.

One way to preach is to share this with people you care about, from my experience it feels really good when someone say, “hey, you changed my life” or ” you inspire me” “you encourage me to be better” you don’t have to be a writer or motivational speaker to positivity impact other people. Sometimes you just have to share with people what you learnt, how you healed, tips, Diys and forth.

25 things I’ve learnt in 25 years.

All of life is peaks and valleys, don’t let the peaks get too high or the valleys too low – John Wooden

And then she turned 26 years old, she has a calmness in her mind and a fine rhythm in her heart beat that reassures that life with all its highs and lows is nothing but beauty full, see her name is Shad she is not your usually average type she is unique all the way nothing she does is ordinary. she breathes a gentle intensity, has a fire in her soul, an eagle eye and a lion’s attitude. she could have died at 8 months, a menace then would have befallen the world for she inspires greatness. she moves with vigour, speaks with power, acts with courage and she has one of those smiles that shows that her soul is nothing but beautiful beneath her skin. she knows who she is, what she wants and where she is going… now let me tell you, the warrior in her is unstoppable.

So much for blowing my own trumpet😂 the truth is am a weakling with a really mighty, big and strong God. I feel so blessed for my plus one now how about I share with you what I’ve learnt over the years;

Allah is the most powerful and prayer is the strongest weapon, life is a battle field I have learnt to choose my wars wisely and fight each one of them with God, fore those who let God fight their battles win even before the match. i have seen transformation in my life that I never deemed possible, I testify to the times I acknowledged that I am weak and I can’t help myself allowed and let God and merged a winner, praying will open doors to all sorts of miracles.

We are all here for a purpose, the best day of your life is the day you find out why you were created. There is a reason for each and everyone of us existence and that reason is to give, serve and to share our gifts and talents to add value unto others. Passion is what fuels purpose, you know those things that you love and enjoy doing? Yeah, they’re connected to your purpose you just have to find a way to use it to help others.

What you give is what you get, i heard a story of a woman who used to pray for everyone except herself but at the end of the day what she prayed, hoped and wished for others came back to her. You have to get out of your way and give the things that you want. If you want to be loved, love. If you want to be forgiven, forgive. If you want money, give money. You want people to be kind to you, well then be kind to them and understand one thing sometimes the person you’re kind to may be callous and rude to you but the kindness in its self will find its way back at you in anyway possible

Be a good receiver, it’s not enough to be a giver you also need to be good at receiving! Accept and Allow yourself to receive the love, kindness and all the good there is.

Dont be a judge, no human being who has existed before or who is gonna walk on earth will ever be perfect and so it’s not your place to Judge anyone but it’s your responsibility to love, respect and pray for everyone no matter how bad we think they are. Hate the sin not the sinner, most times we underestimate the power of praying for people and treating them right. We need to show people what kindness is. spread peace. How people treat you is a reflection of what they are going through and how you treat them is who you are! Always take the high road where you treat people better than they treat you, when someone hurts you or throws you hate they’re having it way bad than you .. So Send them love, joy, peace, forgiveness and understanding

Think about death often, not to be scared but to be inspired to focus on what matters, it helps to curb and keep our lustful desires in check! Knowing one day you’re gonna be gone and all your possessions won’t belong to you anymore pushes you to attach very less meaning to material and worldly things and instead work toward impacting, helping and adding value onto others

Read alot of books, knowledge is the fore runner to experience! The more knowledge you have the more prepared you’re to experience something in your life and so if you want to be an abundant person study abundant people to understand their characteristics, personalities, values and qualities – Joe Dispenza

Challenges are good for us, difficulties play a decisive and undeniable role in personal growth and development. Had there been no tests and tribulations in life piety, human merit and worth would not have value, and self discipline, and self restraint would have no relevance. Similarly, if difficulties did not exist and were every effort to lead to spontaneous success, there would not have been any motive for struggle and advancement would have come to a stand still. Accordingly the pinch of difficulty and failure is not only not harmful it brings dormant capacities into action and completes a man’s moral character and make up – from the book “Ethics and spirtual growth”. the juice is in growth, what you become in the process is much more important than what you achieve and challenges help you to grow into the person who fits the size of your dreams.

It’s the small things that matter, giving someone or something your consistent undivided attention is better than doing something big occasionally

happiness is not a destination, its a choice! why postpone happiness for the future when you can have it all day long everyday for the rest of your life? please read Happiness is here, not there

Life is not happening to us, it’s responding to us, we create our own realities what we think we become. if only you knew the power of your thoughts you would never think a negative thought again. rich and successful people think and talk about what they want most of the time. unsuccessful people focus on what they don’t want and we all know what you focus on expands, where attention goes, energy flows and results start to show.

Your life is a total sum of your perspective, attitude and reaction, two people with the same privileges and tribulations can be leading two different lives. An optimist will see an opportunity in a challenge, have an attitude of gratitude and do the right things while a pessimist in the same situation will see an obstacle in the opportunity, complain and end up messing up.

Love is rare, infact what we have are contracts, people don’t care about energy and how they feel anymore lately its all about what the other person has to offer! THIS NEW CONTRACT disguised as love comes with alot of conditions and expectations it’s no longer about nurturing, helping and serving someone’s growth. People get into relationships to survive. This ain’t love please give it another name.

Love yourself and take good care of your body, until you love, value and respect yourself you will never be able to give the same to someone else. If you dont have $5 can you give someone $5? NO! Same thing when you don’t feel good, you can’t Make anyone else feel good about themselves. Love should begin with you, once you love you, you love the whole world, it’s easy and it’s delicious to love everybody and everything.

5/95 rule, the mind is divided into two; conscious or logical mind and subconscious mind which is our deeply rooted emotions. We operate from the sub conscious mind 95% all our choices and what we do from the moment we wake up until we sleep is getting command from the subconscious and we don’t have active control over it. It keeps collecting information from the time we are born henceforth. If you got fears and limiting beliefs you can change your subconscious mind by repeating instructions out loud ( declarations and positive affirmations) meditating, praying etc

You are a master of your silence, but a slave of your words. You can’t be held accountable for what you did not say. I have learnt that when I have nothing kind, inspiring or encouraging to say then my silence is better because a tongue might not have bones but it’s strong enough to ruin a life. And that death feeling I get after saying something disheartening to someone is not worth it.

The best medicine, is love, gratitude, forgiveness, laughter and connecting with other people

Dream big, have vision and set daily goals, if you dont know where you’re going you’ll stay where you are! If you have no north star you’ll keep wandering off in all directions which will make it hard to get to your destination.

its the spirit not grit, that makes great men. There are people with half the talent that you got making big names and brands because they had the balls to suck at first times, the self discpine to push themselves and invest in the much needed effort to do what they gotta do even on days when they didnt feel like, the will power to rise above the challenges and pick themselves up after big defeats. with practise and patience all of us can paint, all of us can play basket ball, all of us can write great articles. if you are willing to do the work you can be anything.

Perseverance and patience, is the part that most people hate but a test one must pass to achieve anything of greatness. All successful people had that dip where they had to persevere in the face of adversity. If you’re going to win at anything, you’ve got to cleave onto it until it betides.

Fear is an illusion, this is what holds man back the most, the fear of the unknown, the fear of opinions, fear of failure etc but if you can stand boldy and look fear right in the face it shrinks and disappears. We are powerful beyond measure, we have so much potential to create beautiful things but all great things are on the other side of fear.

Comparison is an insult, when you try to become someone else you can only live up to their level when you focus on being the best version of yourself you got no limits! Comparison will make you bitter, resentful, jealous, envious and un productive besides, you have no idea what the other person is dealing with behind curtains or how much they survived to get where they are, you will be shocked to find out that half of what they deal with might kill you, focus on your own journey, run your race at your pace.

Chemicals are a big threat, From the food we eat, to the air we breath, cosmetics, Medicines we take, to the relaxers we use on our hair, mattresses, cleaning detergents, air fresheners, plastic food containers and plastic drink bottles etc our entire lives are in jeopardy! No wonder we are weaker, we get sick often and die at very early ages. Let’s go back to being natural🙏🏾

Health is not the absence of disease, its a state of complete spiritual, mental, physical and social well being. When you have one but not the other you’re not considered healthy, soon enough a handicap in one affects the other to be healthy you have to cut across once you do you achieve a balance and harmony peace and happiness become yours.

Just do it, you have this one life don’t waste it playing it safe never knowing what its like to dare. Old people don’t regret the things they did, they regret what they didn’t do. So Go for it, if you fail atleast you tried, if you win well enjoy, live a little we all wind up dead anyway, take that risk, do that hike, dont hesitate. The little voice in your head saying don’t do it is a sign that you need to do it.

Follow your heart, your head has limits!

Shad 🖤
