“Grandmothers Make You Fat”

Many people believe they could improve their lives if only they had more of that mysterious thing called willpower. With more self-control we would all eat better, exercise regularly, avoid drugs and alcohol, stop procrastinating, and achieve all sorts of noble goals.

But To Tell The Truth, Will power is a Weak Mental Force.

Will power might sound like the super hero of resolve, but it’s actually a fallible contender. “When you’re trying to stick to a New Year’s Resolution, you can forget about relying on willpower,” says Alex Lickerman, assistant vice president for Student Health and Counseling Services at the University of Chicago, and author of The Undefeated Mind (HCI, 2012).       “The more you use it, the more fatigued it becomes.”

Take my life for example…….. I had a deep conversation with my doctor regarding my lack of self control.

“I’ve Had Enough of This Vegan Shit!!!”

Disclaimer: Dear Friends, don’t take offense. I’m a witty writer, so I observe situations and find the humor in it.

 

Now that I got that out the way, let’s get to the story.

 

I’m so tired of this! If I hear another person  repeatedly say, “I’m a vegan!” I’m going to eat a steak, egg, and cheese sandwich in their face, just to make them mad!

 

And the funny thing is, I never have a problem with outside vegans; You know, people on social media, blogs, etc. The vegans I hate are my friends! This weekend ABSOLUTELY topped it all for me.

 

Me and a friend went to NY for the weekend, and eventhough I enjoyed myself very much so, (more…)

“Tee’s Before Sunrise Meditation”

PhotoGrid_1412619353863

Quiet time is often taken for granted. It was given to you to reflect on your life, and see what’s the next best move. The goal of meditation is to focus and quiet your mind, eventually reaching a higher level of awareness and inner calmness. Most people don’t understand true meditation. They think it’s some superficial practice that’s ineffective.

 

“Everyone meditates, but when you focus on it in silence, it’s loud and clear, instead of a whisper.”

 

I’m not saying meditation can solve all of your problems, but it can provide the answer. And those answers can motivate you to improve your life. Meditation heightens your awareness so that, for example, if you are in a crummy job or a lousy relationship, you may become so intensely aware of how bad you feel in the situation that you want to change it.

It may come as a surprise to learn that you can meditate anywhere and at any time. I believe in meditation happening naturally; not forced meditation. You don’t have to put your hands together or sit in a child like pose to meditate.

I Never Tried to Meditate, It Came Naturally…..

One night, I set my alarm for 5am because I was leaving for New York the next morning. (more…)

“My Problem With Arbonne”

arbonne

    Connecting with Arbonne this year, has been one of the greatest experiences of my life. Why? Because I’ve had the chance to meet some marvelous women, and It has helped me gain an interest in creating my own detox and beauty products. To be honest, I feel as though, that was the only reason why I had a close connection to the company because the business side of it didn’t sit too well with me.

I understand no network marketing company is perfect. You have to weigh your Pros and Cons when joining any company. From January to March 2014, I did my full research on Arbonne, received my student refund at the time, and was ready to hit that join button, but it was always something holding me back. Since connecting with Arbonne, I’ve had some major problems. I am so glad I had this realization before investing my money.

 

Problem #1- They lead the business with recruiting

Spring, my potential sponsor, did a three way call with me and one of the VP’s of Arbonne. They were teaching me how to become successful with Arbonne, but I disagreed with a lot of their suggestions.

 

They basically advised me to be an Arbonne mascot. Wear Arbonne, talk about Arbonne. They even advised me to get rid of all the products in my home, and replace it with Arbonne. On top of that, they wanted me to follow their system.

 

[VP of Arbonne] In order to be successful with Arbonne, we lead the business with recruiting. The products will always sell themselves.

 

[Me] That may be true, but my goal is to lead with the products, and if the customers love the products and become regular customers, then they can decide to join as a distributor. (more…)
