Greetings fellow Earth Stars. As you pause for a minute on your journey just remember… This too shall pass. Everything that we go through is for a reason. To make us stronger. Everything is a lesson in the game of life. To get to the next level of consciousness you have to learn,then master the lesson. What some people forget is that we all have the strength and power to overcome all the lessons and reach the higher heights. Don’t get stuck in the cycle of “I cant, Its too hard, and why me”. Get caught in the cycle of ” I am capable, I see my way through this turbulence, thank you for the lesson”. You are more than able to excel in the face of ANY adversity that comes your way. It is in your DNA. Your words, energy and heart are your propellant. Proceed on with courage, wisdom and faith in your strength. This too shall pass.
I have been infatuated with smoothies ever since I received my Ninja Blender for Xmas!! It is phenomenal !! A smoothie is any fruit and or vegetable combo blended with ice (or not) that pleases your palette. My family loves pineapple, so that is a staple in my house as well as kiwi, strawberries, mangos and papaya. You can add your greens from here. We usually add parsley,cilantro,spinach, mint or kale. All have great health benefits and add greens to your diet. Here is an easy recipe to start you off on your Smoothie journey !!
3 slices of ginger
5 sprigs of mint
Blend and enjoy !!
Serves 2 to 3

Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it…Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.
Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out.
Optimism is the one quality more associated with success and happiness than any other.
Our attitude toward life determines life’s attitude towards us.
The key to growth is the introduction of higher dimensions of consciousness into our awareness.
