Positive thinking evokes:

More energy

More initiative

More happiness.

It is so important to stay positive despite setbacks in life. If there is one drastic thing that has changed about me in the past four years, it is my outlook on everything regarding my health issues and my struggles. I refuse to let myself get down for very long. Many people think that positive thoughts are something that people are just gifted with. That is not the case. It takes practice and patience. Positivity is something that you have to work at and after awhile it will come naturally to you.

I hope everyone who celebrates Thanksgiving had a wonderful Holiday! Mine was really lovely. I celebrated it with Matthew and some of my family members. I ate way too much but it was worth it! Speaking of family – My nephew had his baptism this past weekend. I was honored to be the one to hold him while he was being baptized and to be his Godmother! Although I was raised Catholic, I do not consider myself a religious person. I do not abide by nor believe in a lot of what religion entails, however I do consider myself to be extremely spiritual. I believe in a higher power, whether or not it is the same God that the Catholic religion believes in is entirely irrelevant to me. I believe in love, honesty, integrity and kindness and that should be all that matters in the end anyway.

Carter is getting so big already!!! He is truly a little angel. I love him so very much.

my dad, mom, brother, nephew, sister in law and me 🙂

Gluten-Free and Vegan Crepes and a Vanilla-Nut Latte with Almond Milk.

I swear this Vegan Vanilla-Nut Latte is the best thing that ever happened to my life lately. I’m obsessed.

I have been making batches of body scrubs lately. I am thinking of packaging them and giving some to loved ones for Christmas!

I might even do a giveaway of them if anyone would be interested 🙂

I was really ill with a 24 hour stomach virus the other day which seemed to make my Fibro act up again and also really irritated my stomach. I have been taking spoonfuls of Unsulphured Blackstrap Molasses because it really helps with my stomach irritation. I have noticed a significant change in my energy levels since doing the round of Iron Transfusions. I am finally able to wake up early and stay awake during the day and to be able to be productive! It feels amazing. Matthew started his new dream  job today!! I am so excited that everything is finally coming together!

If you missed one of my latest posts about my DIY Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse, you should definitely check it out! It has made such a huge difference in my hair and everyone that has tried it so far is LOVING it. I will be having many more DIY posts in the future. I love to share homemade beauty treats with everyone! Natural beauty doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive!!! It makes my day when someone tells me that my blog has inspired them to change up their products to more natural ones.

The most important thing is to be aware of what we are putting in and on our bodies. There is no need to be obsessive or paranoid about it. Just focus on being a little bit more clean one day at a time 🙂
