I finished my journal last night. It is the journal I have been working from since February of 2017. In these 19 months, I have created a new life. The very first entry was affirmations that I created after reading The Miraculous Morning by Hal Elrod. This post is not about that book, but it is a great read, and it inspired me to accomplish a number of things that I have in the past year and a half. Here are the affirmations that I wrote on Feb 6, 2017: I want to live a lifestyle that allows me the opportunity to secure wealth and stability. I want to own land and property for both investment and wealth-building. I want to be healthy and slim to maximize my quality of…

I am always excited to learn about new foods from all over the world. Today, I stumbled across Halloumi cheese! This is a brined goat and sheep's milk cheese and has a high melting point. It is also rather salty. I am a huge cheese fan and am often scouring the cheese isles of Trader Joe's, Earth Fare, Publix, and my local grocery store. I had never run across this particular cheese. You can imagine my excitement when I found it on Amazon! Here you go: Halloumi cheese, 8 oz¬†https://amzn.to/2BDVDqv A great recipe I found online is this Caprese Salad by Keto Daily.

The Value of Being Selfish

The Value of Being Selfish

Health, Ketosis Diet, Personal Growth, Relationships
If I have learned nothing over the past year, and particularly in the last 6 months, it is the value of defining your own identity and crafting your own life. Having a partner is a wonderful thing, but you must have your own identity independent of them. A partner does not complete you, a partner enhances, complements and enriches your life. Many people are too willing to give up who they are for the sake of a relationship. When they lose their sense of adventure and joy in life, they wonder what happened. Their partner wonders what happened to the amazing person they fell in love with. Do not fall into this trap. Embrace and love yourself. https://youtu.be/ET0cYuKbdQg [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ET0cYuKbdQg&w=560&h=315]
