Hear My Roar!

Image
There is nothing in this life that cannot be fixed or resolved; hence, life consists of situations, not problems. Like grandma used to say “there’s a lid for every pot”.

Whether it is parenting, enjoying a relationship or, trying to advance in the workplace, the key ingredients are patience, persistence and pursuit.
Patience:Stand back and view the entire picture.
Persistence: Tool of determination. Stay positive. Let nothing and no one deter you from moving forward.
Pursuit:  Aim high until you achieve that dream/goal.





What you would realize later in life that you live in a negative society that thrives on obstacles that hold you down and hold you back.

The Early Years
From toddler to adolescence, your mind was pretty much on what you wanted to be when you grow up. Family and friends mused over your vivid imagination. You were a child and had no voice of your own.

During the scholastic years, your classmates and teachers (professors) were actually supportive in your goals and what you hoped …

Dropping Pounds wiithout the Frowns

Image
Dropping pounds without the frowns means dieting and feeling good while doing it.





Many diets are out there and each have their own merit.  
I, for one, never had a problem with my weight. So, Lori, you ask, why are you sharing weight loss tips and secrets? I am because it was always easier for me to involuntarily drop pounds rather than gain and maintain my comfy weight level.
The concept is to eat healthy while pounds melt away. Easier said than done? No, it’s about making the correct choices of food.   
My take on the entire scenario is about eating healthy with fewer calories – everything is low-fat or fat-free
Breakfast

What Puts Power in the Power Couple

Image
Love, trust, understanding and communication are the common denominators for a good relationship, whether you are companions or dating long-term and contemplating the big step.
The Power Couple is the highest level-relationship. They do have their ups and downs, but quickly resolved and never disclosed in public.
The power couple is admired and envied. They always seem to be in sync and display compatibly wherever they go. This is not a fairytale relationship by any means but the ingredients are different.
How It begins Most people marry their high school or college sweetheart or, they go separate ways after school for whatever reason – they might marry – then either divorce or become widowed. Then it comes into play at the High School Class/College Reunion. They meet once again, catch up and discover they are both in the “same place” and ready to rekindle that old flame.
The power couple are also soulmates, which is a rare commodity nowadays. What makes the Power Couple stand out …

Portfolio of Good Health

“Money makes the world go ‘round, but good health is the one commodity which the almighty dollar cannot buy.
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure or, as I prefer to say – One perfect rose is better than a bruised bouquet.
Good health is taken for granted until pain ensues and tests return unfavorable results.

Stress The biggest offender is stress. It comes in all forms and we allow it to control our lives, rather than we controlling ‘it’.
Reducing stress takes discipline and recognizing the cause. Procrastination is one. Putting off the unpleasant tasks or doctor appointments since we are not ready to pursue, yet it haunts us on a daily basis until one morning we awaken and say, “okay, this is! Today it gets done!”
Reducing stress, per se, requires staying calm which is virtually impossible in daily living.The power of positive thinking creates positive energy and helps recharge our mental and physical batteries.
We need to distance ourselves from negative people and ‘ba…

Quotes by Dr. Wayne Dyer, Psychologist

Dr. Wayne Dyer is a noted psychologist and a true inspiration to those who know him and follow him.  

Below are a few of my favorites. 


We are all born geniuses
Life degenius us

Fragrance is forgiveness
Given off by a Lily
That was crushed by a heel

Sell kindness
Purchase bewilderment

Self Actuality
We are "living our lives" on purpose

Our lives are contained in parenthesis 
(nowhere, now-here)

Passing judgement on someone
Because we feel the need to label

It is unfair to invalid another human.
