www.quotesgram.com Some of you might disagree with this but take some time to really think about it and be open-minded as you read. Physically and medically, pain lets you know that you are alive and that something is going wrong with your body; this then makes you seek help to fix what went wrong. Anytime you feel pain in any part of your body, you go to the hospital …

www.jfgibson.com.au Why is this emotion so important to us as human beings? More importantly, why is it that for most of us, other people in our lives affect our happiness? I do not have answers to these questions that have been running through my mind lately. Sometimes I stare at my daughter and how happy she is, and I wish I was as happy as she is. Have you …

www.twitter.com I recently watched the much talked about movie – War Room. It’s about the daily experiences in marriage, and how a woman learnt to submit herself and her home completely to God. I won’t give you the full details about the movie yet specially if you haven’t seen it yet, but I encourage you to get the movie and watch it. In this day and age, ladies find …

www.therenegadepharmacist.com When I started to exercise a couple of months ago, I had a target and a lot of drive. Now that I am close to my target, I am running low on “fuel”. I am burning out. While striving hard to be consistent with my weight loss routine, I read a story on facebook. It was about a Ghanaian radio presenter who was determined to lose weight, and …

www.kathrynmarsden.com If I had a basket of fruits, banana would be my next choice after the avocado. I enjoy it best when it is ripe and soft, but not mushy. It actually has high sugar content but its high potassium content along with the other vitamins makes it an all-round delight. I used to associate it with constipation because the first few times I gave it to my daughter, …

www.bjorden.com A few weeks ago, while chatting with a couple of friends, one of them said, “hard work doesn’t pay” and I was stunned. Another friend then went further to support this statement by saying that some people inherit wealth that they do not work for. I think that even with this group of people, if they don’t work hard at making good investments, they will lose all the …

www.theodysseyonline.com Forgiveness is not an easy thing to do; when we don’t forgive, resentment sets in. A few months ago, I was deeply hurt by someone I trusted; the person never apologized to me, however, I tried to forgive and move on. I actually thought I had forgiven, little did I know that I was harboring resentment. I was angry all the time and it got so bad that …

www.indianlink.com As the year is rolling to an end once again, I am positive most of us are thinking about our new year resolutions. Every year we make resolutions, we come up with goals that we hope to achieve and habits we hope to do away with; however, a week after the year starts, we forget these resolutions and goals, and revert back to our old ways. What then is …

Apple cider vinegar has been believed to cure everything from the simple flu to warts. There is really no evidence to support this but some people believe that adding a little of this to your life may confer some health benefits. A study was done in Japan to test the idea that apple cider vinegar helps with weight loss. It was discovered that on average, the vinegar group lost …

We all feel alone at some point in time. I have been feeling alone even in the midst of people; I tried talking to God about it but I thought He wasn’t listening. I have never doubted His love for me, and as awesome as He is, He found a way to let me know that He loves me and will never leave me. This particular post came to …

www.atacrossroads.net During a conversation with my sister, she told me about her experience with a navigation system. While driving to Reading, she used a “sat-nav” because she was not too familiar with the route; however, she still got lost and started to panic. It then dawned on her that she was depending so much on technology (her sat-nav), that she did not even remember to ask God to direct …

Okay okay, so this isn’t really my journey because my little one is now 2 years old. This is actually about the incredible book that helped me during my pregnancy. Have you guys read this book by Jackie Mize titled Supernatural Childbirth? So the book is about how a couple’s belief in God turned their situation around; how their unshaking faith made the impossible possible in their lives. It’s the story of …

Honey is a sweet liquid made by bees using nectar from flowers. The more golden the honey, the more expensive it is. We already know the common uses of honey – its use as a natural cough remedy and its antibacterial properties, so I won’t bore you with that. Today I will talk about the less common uses of honey; but before that, I just want to clarify a little …

Many a times we focus on pain. We dwell on the frustrations of life. We should rather draw our attention to the blessings. We should let our pain and frustration motivate us towards our success. Life is not a smooth road; it is more of hills and valleys. Life is also not a race; it’s more of a marathon. It’s an individual journey, not a competition. I don’t think …

If it wasn’t sweet, I wasn’t eating it. I was so addicted to sugar! I would rather eat junk food than have a proper meal. The amount of sugar I added to my cereals and beverages was outrageous. It’s no surprise I was my dentist’s favourite visitor as a child. Lol! Sugar has no essential nutrients; it just provides energy, both for us as human beings and for the …

I love my new Ultrashort Racer 100 bike! Exercising is demanding and requires a lot of discipline. This is why I believe we look for shortcuts. Having to exercise regularly can also be time consuming. When I started my weight loss journey, it was quite difficult for me to find my rhythm. I could not seem to find the time; it seemed like there were more important things I …

I did not like yoga when I first heard about it. The truth is that I did not really understand it. Then one day, my childhood friend challenged me to try it. I was really into the “fitness zone” so I did my research and I tried it. Oh wow, peace! It is actually kind of ironic; it is tough on the body, yet relaxing to the mind. It looks …

image source: googleI really love eating avocados, so imagine my surprise when I discovered the misconception about this wonderful fruit. Contrary to popular belief, avocado is the perfect fruit for anyone trying to lose weight. Eating just half an avocado at lunchtime helps squash food cravings for about 3-4 hours, thereby reducing the incidence of afternoon munchies. Its low-carb and high fibre content makes you feel full for a longer …
