Ugggh, This Pollen Is Killing Me.

Well, the brain child I am decided last weekend to mow the lawn without a mask in a time when (had I been thinking) should have known that the pollen levels are at their highest. Needless to say, I have been filled with congestion, doing a mock Netti pot cleanse as well as trying to drink as much liquid and whatever else I can that will loosen this phlegm that is literally choking me to death, if not tickling my throat and making me cough a lung or two up.
Thank goodness for Yerba Mate, almond milk and agave. It is so soothing and I can't get enough. So, I am going to climb into bed, rest and snuggle up with a good book or a great t.v. show (LOL!) and see if I can shorten this pollen death sentence I am forced to endure.

Just A Rainy Tuesday~Energy Abounding

Do you ever wake up sometimes bursting of energy? Or with a little urge to just let out a scream (no negative scream, almost a bursting with joy "let it out" scream)? That was me this morning. Even though it was a raining dreary day outside, I felt full of energy, excitement and motivation to move forward with all my plans.

I have been reading and watching a lot of motivational books and videos lately. I am currently trying to grow my business and break out of my shell on so many levels that I have been using these tools to help me.

It is amazing to me, how words on a page or words people speak can open your eyes and give you the boost you might need at the moment to push through; especially when you feel like giving up.

I have always been shy when it comes to approaching others. Most people find it hard to believe once they get to know me, but it is true. As I have grown older and come into my own more, I realize that I need to just be me. Some people will not like me and it is ok. Even though to be honest, I have never really been one to have to have every one like me anyway. But as you get older the need really becomes less and less.

Don't get me wrong, I love to meet new people, and I am always looking to make new and lasting friendships. I love beiong around people, I have always been a people person. I love to sicialize and do activities with groups of people as well (ie. concerts, events, dinner parties, bookclubs, and the list goes on). I also love to be with me. I am comfortable with spending time alone. Guess being an only child helped in that department.

But the energy I have gained from my reading, and my re-entry into eating mostly raw, has made me wake up in the mornings, energy abounding and looking very forward to what lies ahead.

So, as I write this post and look out the window at the rain falling, my next move will be to step out onto my deck and let my energy take me where it may.
