    Ripples, Quakes, and Explosions

    Ripples, Quakes, and Explosions

    Ripples, quakes, and finally an explosion. If I had words to express this, I would speak them aloud, but instead it comes in ripples, quakes, and explosions that begin in my head but move violently through my body as well. I have no control over this and no options. I have given up the bloody violence of razors and knives I once would inflict upon myself to calm the inner violence. Occasionally though, my hands disagree with my choice and inflict their own form of minor violence in the form of punches to other parts of my body. I cannot hold all of it inside. If I had words to express this, I would speak them aloud.

    Vaccines... To Jab or Not to Jab?

    Vaccines... To Jab or Not to Jab?

    I was recently on Facebook when I came across a post from an irate mother whose child ended up in hospital care as she came into contact with another child who had not been vaccinated against chicken pox. The young girl who ended up in the hospital also had not been vaccinated as during the time she was scheduled to have the vaccination herself she was immune-suppressed and on medication from a kidney transplant; therefore having the vaccination would have given her the illness and made her susceptible to reacting to it very badly. The mother of the child used the word "smartass" to describe parents who do not allow their children to be vaccinated or believe that vaccinations are something that is the choice of the parent and if the child is truly safe from the illness through this procedure then they have nothing to worry about if another child is not vaccinated. I am neither agreeing nor disagreeing with this statement, I am simply highlighting the facts surrounding the pros and cons of this jab or not to jab conundrum to help provide informative advice and facts so you can make a decision that is right for you and your child.

    Plant Based Lifestyle–One Year Later

    Plant Based Lifestyle–One Year Later

    One year ago today, I embarked on a journey that has totally changed my life. After suffering in pain for 21 years after a car accident, and finding no relief through conventional medicine, I sought alternative methods. I asked the Divine for help. I was using a cane and a wheelchair seemed to be in my near future. I knew I had a trip to Italy coming up in 11-12 months. Something had to shift.

    Eating Healthy Challenge!

    Eating Healthy Challenge!

    So I woke up this morning with an urgency. Today, I was going to start a ‘Healthy Eating Challenge!’ Well, the thought was there and my creative imagination extended just in a short timeframe. I am going to take on the challenge of eating healthy and now the pressure is on! No, no, I’m just kidding here. Healthy Eating Challenge! Sounds good huh? Ok, I am not going to say ‘Diet.’ Why? Because ‘Diet,’ sounds like a harsh word. It sounds like, you have to, immediately embed a restrictive value to your mind, and, before you know it you’ve already changed your mind. Personally, this is what I think of when I hear the word(ahem) ‘diet.’

    The Summer Top Up Sale

    The Summer Top Up Sale

    Keep some moisturising cream on hand for those hot summer days in the sun. The best place to buy it: The Body Shop. I did some research to determine how much I saved on my fine luxury items that I had bought in The Body Shop summer sale; I had to do a bit of maths to know what the percentage was of each product, I do have to point out that I did have to use a calculator to work it out. Never got on with maths in the first place; plus the receipt didn't really have much of the original price on it, so I had to look it up for starters.

    Struggle

    Struggle

    We all hear the saying don't judge until you walked in my shoes. My struggle has been a long one. I don't think anyone has seen my real struggle. Because the struggle is within me not just on the outside of me. It's the hardest thing; I must explain. Let's go back to 2006. This is where the struggle got super bad. I was in the position of trying to find my place and pushed into a place. I started drinking and cutting myself. I felt super crazy, depressed, and didn't know what to do. This was my first run in with a therapist. I started going when there was on at my high school. I felt like I was not making any progress, so I stopped going. I pulled away from everything I loved doing. Kept looking at my scars and thought I was ugly. I got teased because of my limp. I got teased because my hand doesn't work like everyone else's. I already had a hard time with my mom being sick. I just lost an uncle that year. My world was crashing in on me.

    The Changing Face of Plastic Surgery

    The Changing Face of Plastic Surgery

    The decision to get plastic surgery is a deeply personal one. While an entertainer may see cosmetic surgery as a vital career move, others may see it as a necessity. Some, like the maturing Botox generation, want to effectively delay the signs of aging, some want a more exotic look, and some may even have surgeryfor amusement or on a whim.

    Jiggling for Justice

    Jiggling for Justice

    There is not a piece of me anywhere on my body that does not jiggle. I am not a hard body; I am a soft body. Nothing on me "juts" or "cuts"; it is all round and curvy, I do not have hard angles. You cannot see my ribs or my collarbone. I get the feeling when people hug me or cuddle up to me that I am much like your favorite overstuffed cushion. Squishy, soft and warm.
