Food for thought!

Incase you haven't noticed from my post i'm TEAM POSITIVE! i might sound depressed at times or most times but its just the spur of the moment (you-know-you-know-what-i'm-talking-about)...anyways all i'm saying is read this;
A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the “half empty or half full” question. Instead, with a smile on her face, she inquired:”How heavy is this glass of water?”

Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz.

She replied, “The absolute weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute, it’s not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I’ll have an ache in my arm. If I hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes.”

She continued, “The stresses and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them a bit longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed – incapable of doing anything.”

It’s important to remember to let go of your stresses. As early in the evening as you can, put all your burdens down. Don’t carry them through the evening and into the night. Remember to put the glass down!

I'm guessing you already know about the half-empty, half-full concept..incase you don't let me put it in my way.
The optimist sees a glass half filled with water and says; "its half-full" mainly because he has hopes of it getting to the brim... meanwhile the pessimist on the other hand says; "its half-empty" cause well he's given up on life and has no faith whatsoever.....Where do you fall?

And before i forget...HAPPY EASTER LOVES

Treat Yoself!

So i went in for mini photo shoot mainly head shots.. had a blast! tried giving different expressions not sure how much i succeeded but oh well.... Out of like 50+ these are my faves ;)..The struggle to be consistent and photogenic at the same time smh! Hopefully i'll be like COCO ROCHA someday...100+ different expressions in a minute that's a killer!


Got my nails done with gel nail polish! do not regret it at all. Its been a week and it hasn't chipped. HALLELUJAH! lol...cost me $15 not bad compared to other places. And yes those are my real nails ;)

Got my eyebrows threaded for the first time too! If i had my way i wouldn't even do them lol but since they so disorganized gotta do what i gotta do. 
I get irritations from waxing so i went on a new adventure! They both hurt only the waxing is a lot faster lol with threading you gotta endure the pain. #diaryofawoman. Again, THE STRUGGLE!


Healthy Pays!

I came across this video this week and if this didn't motivate me to go to the gym idk what will..(even though my lazy behind is still sitting here). Past 50, most women give up on healthy eating habits and taking good care of themselves cause as they put it (i'm old). Its all about how you feel though and what makes you feel good. Personally i want to be like this at 70..are u kidding me? i can't stand a zit on my face( even though i have plenty) how much more wrinkles? 
where we have a problem is erm she's vegetarian! yeah that won't work with me i live for meat...give up ribs and chicken and fish? yeah not happening. i don't know how she gets protein maybe supplements. Either way its food for thought...
I'm going with gym and eating healthy occasional burgers once or twice ;) (homemade burgers are much healthier though every thing's fresh). If you can do this kuddos to you. i'll be here eating meat for the both of us. 
PS: making your own fresh juice at home that's a plus plus! That i can do!Try blending mango, pineapple and freshly squized orange juice...delicioso!

What's your healthy regimen??? share share share!
