  • He Was Grieving Over the Death Of His Best Friend, Until and Old Man Told him This.

    Posted on December 9, 2017 by Wendy

    If you have ever lost someone near and dear to you sometimes
    you go searching for answers to life's questions.

    After my mom passed away last Christmas I researched about grief
    as my mom was, and still is my best friend.
    A part of me was lost, never to be the same, I am changed.

    I think it's time to write another chapter in my next book
    on how grief can affect your "natural state of weight" as well.
    You don't realize until you are in it how your weight
    gets affected with emotions and grief.

    On a positive note, I found this wonderful story from an old man to a younger man
    who was grieving over the loss of his best friend.
    It sure put things into perspective so thought I would share it.
    Unfortunately no one seems to know who the old man was.. or his name

    He Was Grieving Over the Death Of His Best Friend, Until and Old Man Told him This.

    I'm old. What that means is that I've survived (so far)
    and that a lot of people I've known and loved did not.

    I've lost friends, best friends, acquaintances, co-workers, grandparents,
    mom, relatives, teachers, mentors, students, neighbors, and a host of other folks.

    I have no children and I can't imagine the pain it must be to lose a child,
    but here's my two cents...

    I wish I could say you get used to people dying, but I never did.
    I don't want to.

    It tears a hole through me whenever somebody I love dies,
    no matter the circumstances.

    But I don't want it to "not matter". I don't want it to be something that just passes.

    My scars are a testament to the love and the relationship that I had
    for and with that person. And if the scar is deep, so was the love.
    So be it.

    Scars are a testament to life. Scars are a testament that I
    can love deeply and live deeply and be cut, or even gouged,
    and that I can heal and continue to live and continue to love.

    And the scar tissue is stronger than the original flesh ever was.
    Scars are a testament to life.
    Scars are only ugly to people who can't see.

    As for grief, you'll find it comes in waves.
    When the ship is first wrecked, you're drowning,
    with wreckage all around you.

    Everything floating around you reminds you of the beauty
    and the magnificence of the ship that was,
    and is no more, and all you can do is float.

    You find some piece of wreckage and you hang on for a while.
    Maybe it's some physical thing.
    Maybe it's a happy memory or a photograph.
    Maybe it's a person who is also floating.
    For a while, all you can do is float. Stay alive.

    In the beginning, the waves are 100 feet tall
    and crash over you without mercy.
    They come 10 seconds apart and don't even give you time to catch your breath.
    All you can do is hang on and float.

    After a while, maybe weeks, maybe months,
    you'll find the waves are still 100 feet tall,
    but they come further apart.
    When they come, they still crash all over you and wipe you out.
    But in between, you can breathe, you can function.

    You never know what's going to trigger the grief.
    It might be a song, a picture, a street intersection,
    the smell of a cup of coffee.
    It can be just about anything... and the waves come crashing.
    But in between waves, there is life.

    Somewhere down the line, and it's different for everybody,
    you find that the waves are only 80 feet tall.
    Or 50 feet tall.
    And while they still come, they come further apart.

    You can see them coming. An anniversary, a birthday, or Christmas,
    or landing at O'Hare. You can see it coming, for the most part,
    and prepare yourself.

    And when it washes over you, you know that somehow you will,
    again, come out of the other side.
    Soaking wet, sputtering, still hanging on to some tiny pieces of the wreckage,
    but you'll come out.

    Take it from an old guy. The waves never stop coming,
    and somehow you don't really want them to.
    But you learn that you'll survive them.

    And other waves will come.
    And you'll survive them too.
    If you're lucky, you'll have lots of scars from lots of loves.
    And lots of shipwrecks.

    Luv Wendy,

  • Choose Her Every Day

    Posted on October 24, 2015 by Wendy

    A friend of mine shared this today on Facebook and I wanted to share it with you all.
    Whether you are in a relationship or not it is a MUST read. It's so insightful and true.

    This was written by Bryan Reeves however the link to his site is not working unfortunately
    but I wanted to make sure I gave credit to him.

    Choose Her Every Day (Or Leave Her)

    I spent 5 years hurting a good woman by staying with her but never fully choosing her.

    I did want to be with this one. I really wanted to choose her.
    She was an exquisite woman, brilliant and funny and sexy and sensual.
    She could make my whole body laugh with her quick, dark wit and short-circuit my brain with her exotic beauty.
    Waking up every morning with her snuggled in my arms was my happy place. I loved her wildly.

    Unfortunately, as happens with many young couples, our ignorance of how to do love well quickly
    created stressful challenges in our relationship. Before long, once my early morning blissful
    reverie gave way to the strained, immature ways of our everyday life together,
    I would often wonder if there was another woman out there who was easier to love, and who could love me better.

    As the months passed and that thought reverberated more and more through my head,
    I chose her less and less. Every day, for five years, I chose her a little less.

    I stayed with her. I just stopped choosing her. We both suffered.

    Choosing her would have meant focusing every day on the gifts she was bringing into my life that
    I could be grateful for: her laughter, beauty, sensuality, playfulness, companionship, and so … much … more.

    Sadly, I often found it nearly impossible to embrace – or even see – what was so wildly wonderful about her.

    I was too focused on the anger, insecurities, demands, and other aspects of her strong personality
    that grated on me. The more I focused on her worst, the more I saw of it, and the more I mirrored
    it back to her by offering my own worst behavior. Naturally, this only magnified the strain
    on our relationship … which still made me choose her even less.

    Thus did our nasty death spiral play itself out over five years.

    She fought hard to make me choose her. That’s a fool’s task. You can’t make someone choose you,
    even when they might love you.
    To be fair, she didn’t fully choose me, either. The rage-fueled invective she often hurled at me
    was evidence enough of that.
    I realize now, however, that she was often angry because she didn’t feel safe with me.
    She felt me not choosing her every day, in my words and my actions, and she was afraid I would abandon her.

    Actually, I did abandon her.

    By not fully choosing her every day for five years, by focusing on what bothered me rather than
    what I adored about her, I deserted her.

    Like a precious fragrant flower I brought proudly into my home but then failed to water,
    I left her alone in countless ways to wither in the dry hot heat of our intimate relationship.

    I’ll never not choose another woman I love again.

    It’s torture for everyone.

    If you’re in relationship, I invite you to ask yourself this question:
    “Why am I choosing my partner today?”

    If you can’t find a satisfying answer, dig deeper and find one. It could be as simple as noticing
    that in your deepest heart’s truth, “I just do.”

    If you can’t find it today, ask yourself again tomorrow. We all have disconnected days.

    But if too many days go by and you just can’t connect with why you’re choosing your partner,
    and your relationship is rife with stress, let them go.
    Create the opening for another human being to show up and see them with fresh eyes
    and a yearning heart that will enthusiastically choose them every day.

    Your loved one deserves to be enthusiastically chosen. Every day.
    You do, too.

    Choose wisely.

  • pH Alkaline Foods - My personal favourites for High Energy

    Posted on June 22, 2014 by Wendy

    It's official! Happy Summer Everyone!

    And with that comes the magnificence of Healthy, Delicious, pH Alkaline Foods.

    There is amazing energy in the foods we eat so this month I want to share with you some of the top alkaline foods that I personally eat to ensure I keep my energy high. With all the summer activities going on you do not want to feel sluggish or tired, and it is a proven fact that eating an alkaline diet with help you to feel more vibrant and alive. What better way to spend your day!

    You can certainly find ALL of these amazing foods at your local grocery store or better yet, at your local Farmer's market.

    Spinach, Kale & Romaine Lettuce are rich in vitamins and minerals. The folate is a mood enhancing mineral and actually lowers depression so eat more spinach, kale and romaine lettuce to feel happier because when we are happier we are more energetic. There is nothing more energizing than a spinach salad, or some yummy kale chips.

    Almonds and Walnuts are protein packed with a good source of magnesium. The magnesium helps convert sugar into energy. This is a great snack for the afternoon when you need a pick me up and also easy to carry with you for a "quick fix". Don't forget to also sprinkle them on your salads or add some sunflower seeds with them to mix it up.

    A glass of water when you feel tired will more than likely give you the boost of energy you need by hydrating your body. We feel sluggish when we are dehydrated so keep your body hydrated to feel more energetic, especially in the heat or when outside. I know this isn't "officially" a food however it's just as important. By also adding fresh lemon to your water in the morning and night is also an excellent way to get your source of alkaline in your water.

    If you haven't used Coconut Oil, now is a good time to begin. Coconut oil is a fat that converts quickly into energy and you can also cook with it as well as use in your shakes and smoothies. It certainly gives your dishes an excellent, unique, delicious flavour. You can also enjoy raw coconut as well or add it to your salad toppings too. The latest healthy craze is all about Coconuts!

    Lastly, Dates, Figs & Raisins are an excellent alkaline source. I love to dip my dates and figs into raw honey, and then roll them into raw crushed almonds or coconut. What a wonderful treat! The raisins are also fabulous as a salad topper. Did you know that raisins are a good source of potassium and magnesium? These two minerals are both very effective in neutralizing the acids in your body and help check acidosis and other related condition. There is no better snack to alkalize your body than with dates, figs & raisins, and also get to a natural state of weight.

    pH Alkaline Foods

    So there you have it! Some of my top alkaline foods to keep yourself energized this summer. Make sure you add them to your shopping list and enjoy your month everyone.

    Luv Wendy
