I’m not trying to sell this to you, but I am sharing that Amazon Prime keeps my world goin’ ’round.
I use the Subscribe and Save section every month, making sure to subscribe to at least five products so that I can save even more money.
‘Cause… I’m trying to minimize and simplify in all aspects of my life, at all times.
So by buying in bulk, only getting the delivery once a month, and not having to drive all over town going to different stores. It’s a win-win for me. Now I have more time to take the kids to parks, meditate, learn something new together, use the yoga trapeze (that I ordered from Amazon), go on bike rides, hikes, create an original piece of jewelry, or expand my world in some other good for the planet way.
The possibilities ARE endless!
See you on the flip side!

Now, at first glance, you might be thinking… “Crystals?”, but don’t pre-judge anything before you check out this wonderfully informative video on crystals and how they can benefit many aspects of your life.
I am currently testing out all of the things they discuss in this short movie and I’ll let you know after a little more time how it’s going. (Honestly, so far so cool!)
I started using crystals just a few weeks ago because I stumbled upon great information that stated how beneficial they are to add to ones life. Crystal information seemed to be popping out everywhere. I’ve been making it a point to pay more attention to syncranicities that happen around me.
My sister was on the crystal train already and doing her own in-depth research which has proved to be very rewarding to her life.
Enjoy this easy to digest video!
Do you own any crystals?
I’ve heard that crystals go where they are needed.
Tell us a story of how you came to hold your crystals.
Looking forward to your comments!
I’ve been saying, for a few years now, that “This is the year! This is when all of our hard work rewards us with our goals!”
But the truth is, I know better.
As much as I want to be able to dictate when and where success will come, I know that luxury doesn’t happen on demand.
I dream of being on my future-farm, able to sit in my office and get a few hours of un-interrupted writing done during daylight hours. That’s just not in the cards every day and that’s ok. Everyone deserves positive attention and guidance and I’m there for my children in that way.
Since the new year, I have been practicing many new practices. One of which is learning how to manifest things using the power of positive thinking and using high vibrational frequencies to see if goals can be reached sooner. I’ll write more on this later, as today I’m just revisiting how well these manifesting practices are affecting my current life and situation. I will write whether or not they work at a later date.
So, as much as I want to be an accomplished blogger, I recognize and realize that I will design, write blog posts, and books as much as I can until it opens up to do so more often.
After all, I am working on enjoying my children’s childhood, too!
So, I am currently renouncing my stubborn ways and deciding to appreciate every moment I do get to work on what I want, when I want because, after all, that is my ultimate goal. To be able to do whatever I want when I want and I want that for everyone (as long as what you want does no harm to anyone or anything: )
Don’t worry! That usually means that I want to help those around me in any way I can without a negative impact.
My children might interrupt me every few minutes on some days, but as they get older, they interrupt less and less, and I can sense and see that they really are doing well and becoming wonderful little human beings.
We all enjoy excitedly talking about the entire family’s goals before bed each night and the family’s goals are great to discuss with the whole family, not just mom and dad deciding for the entire family, though there are times that is necessary, but not when you’re talking about goals.
To let everyone speak up a bit about what they’re excited about in life is how we all start to connect or re-connect and connections are important your whole life, so why not cultivate an amazing relationship with your children from the start.
Don’t get me wrong, bedtime still takes me way too long with three kids when I’m going solo, but the harder I have to work at life by myself, I get this sense that it’s adding something to a metaphorical piggy bank that will pay back in the future.
That’s all for now. Have an awesome day!
Today I want to share something that might look a bit odd, but it’s beneficial none-the-less.
Most of us have suffered some form of trauma in our lives and there are many ways to deal with it. One of them being Trauma Releasing Exercise (TRE)
Check out the video below to learn more about how to release trauma from your body. It’s a great way to feel better when you can’t exactly figure out what’s bothering you.
If you do try it out, feel free to let me know how you feel afterwards.
Have an awesome day!
I am a true believer in the coconut oil pulling craze.
I first heard about it around 6 years ago. You put around a spoonful of coconut oil in your mouth, you swish it around and “pull” it, somewhat vigorously, through your teeth anywhere from 10-20 minutes.
Now there’s a little debate in my mind as to how long because I’ve read a few well-known health sites that have said anything over 10 minutes may cause you to re-absorb some bad bacteria if you pull too long.
My personal belief is that you should pull the coconut oil through your teeth as long as you can stand it… up to 20 minutes.
The truth is, your jaw muscles get really worked out during this whole process and it gets tiring. Especially the first few times you do it, but there are so many benefits and the workout is one of them!
I’ve noticed it helps define my neck, chest, and shoulder area because it’s such a workout that it usually reminds me to actually do some other physical moves while I’m doing my pulling (think squats, horse stance, core exercises, whatever you can think up). Total bonus!
Not only does it help in toning the neck area, but it also:
- Cures tooth decay
- Kills bad breath
- Heals bleeding gums
- Prevents heart disease
- Reduces inflammation
- Whitens teeth
- Soothes throat dryness
- Prevents cavities
- Heals cracked lips
- Boosts Immune System
- Improves acne
- Strengthens gums and jaw
I have noticed all these benefits in my time using it.
I know I’m just a little ‘ol girl from the inter-webs, but speaking from years of experience, when I remember to do the coconut oil pulling 3-5 days a week, my teeth are whiter, cleaner, healthier, and pain-free. I have less gum and mouth issues altogether since introducing this into my life.
If I feel a canker sore coming on after I bite my cheek or something, coconut oil helps mouth my wounds heal faster, it’s awesome!
So go to the cupboard right now, grab your cold-pressed coconut oil and scoop a quarter size amount into your mouth and start giggling because you’re going to sound like your talking to your dentist for the next little while 😉
Oh and maybe share this if you like it. Girls gotta blog!
Happy coconut oil pulling!
