Who I used to be

Who I used to be
When she recalled this version again, her impression of me before she knew me, I remembered who I was then.  I remembered my impatience to make things happen.  However, I also remembered the journey of a thousand defeats, and how my patience grew longer and longer to a point of suspension of expectation.  Not a healthy place to be if you’re trying to make things happen.

Not your job: Changing people's minds

Not your job: Changing people's minds
It’s not my job to change the minds of others about who I am as a person, but it’s definitely my job to keep it clear in my own mind. I’m telling you this because I believe in my heart that when you get to know yourself (not your wobbly self, but your higher self – the real you) other’s will eventually come to learn who you are - even if they’ve known you your entire life.

Activated Charcoal Part III: The Brave Experiments

Activated Charcoal Part III: The Brave Experiments

We’ve been highly focused on discussing activated charcoal, what it is and all of its benefits because we understand – and hope you do too – that activated charcoal is not a fad.  It is a highly studied remedy for many ailments and a prevention of the body’s absorption of toxins.  For some, activated charcoal has been the difference between life and death. Literally.  We can’t stress its important enough.  I believe it is almost as important as the discovery of penicillin. The creation of soap.  It’s that significant.
