One of the most compelling reasons to retire in Colombia is the currency exchange of the Colombian peso against the U.S. dollar. Your dollar will buy you more in Colombia today than at any time in recent memory.
This is not about holding on to sadness for longer then you should. This is not about turning your back on sadness. This is about honoring your humanity. Allowing for you to be you. Overall, you are the Universe expressing itself in a body, how could you go wrong?
Not everyone who is fat suffers from diabetes, heart and blood pressure problems. I don't. But I will without a change. A high BMI indisputably causes medical melee on a body. In spite of what we hear repeatedly by naysayers, if you are obese, you are not healthy.
Let's be real for a moment and admit that parenting is H-A-R-D. Natural parenting, or wellness-oriented parenting, where you're trying to create an environment of health, happiness, and freedom from the toxins of the world is even harder.
Let's acknowledge that life is not fair and never will be. We have to keep cruising, but not at the cost of our well being. All we need to do is equip ourselves with some tools and make some wise and conscious choices to lead more peaceful and joyful lives.
If you have found yourself in a similar situation to me -- you're a renter, you're constantly moving, or a combination of both -- I am here to tell you that there are positives! Here are my three reasons I now love renting and frequent moves.
I often think about how to start each day. My goal is to create a day to look forward to and embrace in terms of positive energy. In the fast-pace...
We do not know what is around the corner, so we often cling to the negative feelings surrounding past events. It can be hard to let go, and often for good reason. I struggle all the time to release, and stay open. That evening I learned, even more so than my son, that when we trust that the universe conspires in our favor, good things happen
Mental stress is powerful and sneaky. Remember that diamond is just charcoal that handled stress exceptionally well, and accept that there are things you simply can't control or change.
We typically spend the majority of our lives in a work environment, and with the ubiquity of technology, there are more demands on our time and attention than ever before.
It seems the threshold to our spiritual journey waits beyond our struggle to work with what we're given. Chant What we want and what we're given oft...
Righteousness is not liberation; it is known as the golden chain. Eventually you'll find that you want to be free more than you want to be right.
As I lie in bed before falling asleep, I take a minute to silently identify and express gratitude for a few things in my day and life I'm thankful for. Focusing on how much I have, rather than how much I have to do, reminds me that whatever happens, I'll be okay.
True beauty lets you fly. True beauty grounds you in gratitude. It grounds you, crowns you and abounds in youth. It's vibrant from the roots up so you may thrive.
Nature affords us so much more than its aesthetic beauty. It is critical that we protect it from all the outside forces that have encroached on so much else in the world, and in doing so, that have encroached on our ability to truly express ourselves.
Does the sound of someone smacking or popping their gum drive you crazy? Do you want to pull out your hair when you hear loud music upon entering a store or your children calling "mom" over and over again?
There was a time when I believed Love to be scary or something to stay away from. I thought Love hurt and that it was painful. I actually thought Love did me more harm than good. Every time I messed around with Love, eventually I got hurt. So, I gave up on Love. I gave up on being hurt.
I dreamed it again last night. The plaintive cries of a hungry, lost kitten. Even when I stirred awake, I still heard the echoes in my head. Karma...
Many people yearn for a silent retreat, but they resist actually going because of what they read and hear. Despite all the great reviews, for many a s...
