I just need to say this....

This week I have been confronted by many things that have made me stop and really work my tinkboxer! (thats brain for you non campers...)

I truly believe in God and his love for me....I believe that he puts people, situations, words...whatever in my line of sight as a way of speaking to me. You can call it Kismit, Fate, The Universe, Buddha, Mohammed, Ganesh, The Stars whatever you like but I call it God. I still love you even if you call it horseshit!

I wanted to share some of the things that have touched me latlely.

1. I am an avid reader of Badmommymoments.com and she has been talking about a site called Unbreakable

I have been so moved by the courage of these people to face their fears and shame and say NO...SHAME IS FOR THE ATTACKER! It reminds me of the strength of the human spirit

2. Why I hate Religion....I have long felt alone and ashamed of my disgust for organized religion which I felt was is in direct contradiction to my love of God. Its nice to know I am not alone. I truly believe that God would be so disappointed to see what his "church" has become. The wars fought in his name, the hurts perpatrated in the name of religion and his "church" spending their money on themselves instead of the community.

Didn't God say that the greatest commandment was love and that we should love our neighbor...I think he even said despite their "sin" :) Jesus would have lived on the downtown eastside....just saying!

3. I want to be an instrument of compassion, do you? This is the first time that i have heard this prayer, but it is the words of my heart!

4. One of the hardest things for me to remember is to take life one day at a time especially when things get tough.

Have I hurt your brain today?? I hope not...I just found these things so encouraging I wanted to share them in case they spoke to you too!

I just want to be the best me that I can be....so Today I am going to try that out!

Thanks,

T

Review - Usana Reset

Its been a while since i wrote here, but I thought this would be the best place to host my review.

What is the Usana Reset?  according to their website:

Reset is a 5 day Jumpstart that is a nutritionally balanced, low-calorie system to help you kick carbohydrate cravings and lose the first few pounds and find the motivation to keep working toward your total weigh-loss goal.   Reset helps people jumpstart healthy eating habits and begin to make a clean break from unhealthy, high-glycemic foods.

Reset is meant to be followed up by a 2 month program that tapers off of their food product and into a Low GI diet.   
This review is specifically about the 5 day reset.  Here is how the week shapes up:
You can buy the products online but they recommend you buy the actual reset package that includes a DVD and other extra's.

I have a close contact who sells Usana and they just bought me the items I needed to complete the days.

Lets take a look at the different things my week was made up of:







If…

Permanent or Removable.....that is the question!

So, I have had a few days to reflect on this being 39 thing, and I think I am pretty excited! I am about to enter a totally new phase of my life and this is scary and crazy and wonderful.

I think it is apropos that my last year of my 30’s will be met with much great fanfare and celebration all year long. It is after all the 10th anniversary of the Good Noise Vancouver Gospel Choir and as such we have some AMAZING concerts and events happening this year!

I have decided that this year will be much like the one that ushered in my 30’s with lots of self reflection, being kind to myself and treating myself they way I should be treated! Thankfully this time I will be doing it with someone I love very deeply by my side!

One of the things I have been thinking about it the desire to let go but not forget the lessons I have learned! Life has not always been kind to me; I have had some pretty shitty stuff happen in my life so far. Please don’t take this as any form of Woe is me…just a fact. Life…

WOAH........its been awhile.

Its howdy doody time….its howdy doo….wait?  

what was I talking about? Oh yeah….
Its update time….I know my three loyal followers are wondering if I fell off the face of the earth and I kind of feel like I have.
Okay lets go back in the history books and see where our intrepid hero was when we last spoke with her….
HOLY F^&*)^!!!!!   I was leaving for Europe….has it really been almost a year!!!!!!!!!

Man I am going to have to break this one up….so here is what I will do.   I will write a general update and go back and review my pics and journals and then I will write a series of three posts.   One for Italy, one for France and a final one  for London and my overall feelings about the trip.

I guess for your hard core fans you have seen the pics on facebook and heard the stories around the watercooler, but for those of you who aren’t in the know….I will tell you all the gritty details.   Tales of the most disastrous travel day of my life….the most amazing meal I ever ate….the pickp…
