Hear My Roar!

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.

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 to accomplish.

Follow your dream, not your parents

As an adult you found your niche and began realizing what it was that you wanted to persist and pursue in life; however, your parents had their own ideas about your future. Find your true worth, you stood strong in your conviction and reminded them this was your life and dream, not theirs.

Initially, they rebelled but learned to deal with it as time went on.

Hear My Roar was created to demonstrate the importance of adding your voice and being heard, rather than sitting back and allowing a negative society or surroundings to control and manipulate who you are and what you do.

Houseclean Your Circle of Friends

You were born to succeed also envelops positive energy. You will find yourself doing some serious housecleaning in your social circle of friends. True friends are support and well-wishers. Frenemies are the friendly enemies who pretend to wish you well but they are inwardly consumed with greed, envy and jealousy, not to mention competitive.

Once you exude positive energy and positive thinking, the world sees you differently and has the option to join you in the circle of positivity or drown in the swamp of negative.

How to Roast a Succulent and Perfect Turkey

I have been hosting Thanksgiving 13 years and would really enjoy taking a year off from the Tom Turkey Project; however, there would be a gap.  I have my own way of prepping and cooking the famous bird and feel the need to share with my readers.

In the past, I always ordered and cooked the frozen turkey. Then a few years ago curiosity and a change of pace had me purchase a fresh bird and a good choice it was. The only problem is that a fresh turkey does not come with a lifter; hence, I created my own. See the illustration at the end of this article.
Items needed

70 inches of twine for make-shift turkey lifter 4 Sticks Unsalted Butter Salt and Pepper
Carving Board with Moat (if possible). The moat is the recessed edges of the carving board that contains the juices while carving and makes for easy cleanup. 

Food Station
I always set up my kitchen table as the food station. This is where I place the leftovers in their respect servers after dinner. This allows everyone to chose their pickin'…

Portfolio of Good Health

Sometimes a friend's affirmation
Is better than Medication

“Money makes the world go ‘round, but the one commodity which the almighty dollar cannot buy is good health
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…
