Good Morning To All Just Telling You It Is Nice To Be Alive

It is nice to be alive, and well. To be able to enjoy the pleasures of life, and learn from the pains that we all go through at some point in our lives.

Grow, run, pause, walk, think, fly, learn, forget, love, write, sing, dance… oh goodness, it is beautiful to have two eyes and be able to see the forest, the beach, the trees, to see nature, the entire world. It’s wonderful to be alive.

In the meantime, I will proceed to drink my cup of coffee and enjoy every single sip of it.

5 Ways to Stop Worrying and to Truly Live Your Life

WAYS TO ENJOY YOUR LIFE!

#1 — Don’t allow the fear of failure to stop you from taking risks

While we will all do more to avoid pain than to gain pleasure in the short term, we need to flip our thinking so that we look more to the long term. We must ask ourselves questions like, “Why am I so worried? What’s the worst that can happen if I just take a risk? What’s the potential outcome 2, 3, 5, or even 10 years from now?

#2 — Remember that you’ve got this — you’ve pulled through before, and you’ll pull through again

Other ways to achieve it: all you have to do is realize that you’ve pulled through in the past and you’ll pull through again. Jot down how you were able to figure out a once-desperate situation. Recall the times when things seemed dark and bleak, but somehow, one way or another, you figured it out. You did it before and you’ll do it again.

#3 — Immediately disrupt any and all detrimental behavior and negative beliefs that are holding you back

happiness worries inspiration dra martha castro noriega tijuana mexico california usa

I talk about beliefs because worry is born from a state of negative beliefs. There are different ways to come to the “chronic worrying path”. We worry because we believe we’re not good enough, smart enough, or capable enough to see something through. We worry because we don’t think we have what it takes. That leads to negative thinking and a set of resultant behaviors that help to close the loop of negativity.

#4 — Your self-worth doesn’t rely on others’ opinions of you — ignore the naysayers

Make a conscious decision right now to do it. Decide, right here in this very moment, that your life means more than others’ opinions of you. And tell yourself you’re not going to worry about it anymore. It’s just not that important. It’s not worth your mental health. Just keep doing you and moving forward. All of the rest will eventually fall into place over time.

#5 — Anything in life that’s worthwhile, will never, ever come easy

Worrying does a huge number on us. It takes away on every level.

Physically, emotionally, spiritually, and or financially. But, in order to move away from worry, not only do we need a major shift in our focus, but we need a strategic plan for the future. We need to set goals, create a plan, take action, persist, and never give up. Find your way back!

Suicide Can Be Preventable Use Strong Love Education Compassion

SUICIDE ATTEMPTS AND SUICIDE DEATH

Suicide can be preventable from infancy. Having caring parents and relatives who really love their children and look out for them, creating an optimal and loving environment for their healthy and happy growth.

suicide depression anxiety dra martha castro tijuana

But, even when we have had been raised in loving homes by caring parents, in a healthy social and mental environment bad things happen to good people as we all know: a failed marriage, the death of a loved one, the loss of work or income, a traumatic accident; things that could trigger an acute depression and if not treated immediately it could develop into a severe case of suicidal depression.

When a friend, a child, a patient, anybody tells us that “I don’t want to live anymore”, or that  “I am going to kill myself tonight or tomorrow”, we have the responsibility as human beings to believe him/her and help in any way possible and as soon as possible.

However, this almost seems like a difficult dream in the world we live in. But it is not impossible, we have to have hope, always, and have love, for ourselves, our children, our family, and friends.

102 Years Old Woman “I am Marvelous”

102 years old: MILLIE BAILEY
“I am Marvelous” by Shiloh Sophia

“Today I choose.
I have chosen to be the queen of my kingdom.
To name me as the ruler of my life.
I will not wait for the approval of others.
I choose to listen to this big heart within me.
I have chosen to occupy this space in this Universe.
I don’t keep my gifts hidden any longer.
I don’t allow fear to hinder my greatness.
I have chosen to be as wonderful as I truly am.
I don’t judge myself for the path I have not yet taken, or for the way I have behaved so far.
I choose to forgive myself and release the old stories
to make room for new stories, for legends to emerge.
I will not abandon my dreams and visions.
I will think with my thoughts.
I chose to fall in love with who I am, as I am, right now.
To embrace the messy and wonderful world inside of me.
I won’t diminish my light, one more day. You hear me now.
I let go of the shadows. I open my hands. I open my heart.
I choose to see myself, and to be seen by you too.
I choose to see myself as everything, holy, worthy, and wildly me.
This is more than enough. I chose to be scandalous!
Being Wonderful is not a defect.
It’s a choice.

You hear me now.
Are you ready for this? I am. Today I choose.
I have chosen to be Wonderful!”
– Shiloh Sophia

Anything Goes On Sunday: Just Being Alive is Wonderful

Born, live, grow up (some people mentally evolve, some others devolve) die, and everything we breath in between: pain, laughter, sorrow, happiness, abandonment, love. We can make it, survive and enjoy life. Then we have to get ready to move on, to change rooms, to start living in the Big Picture that awaits each on of us.

In the meantime: Just Being Alive is Wonderful!

Superfood Term Is It Just A Marketing Strategy To Sell?

The truth is that many of these foods have been around for centuries. Their health benefits are backed up by science. The only novelty is the term “superfoods,” which is mostly used for marketing purposes.

VEGETABLES, FRUITS, RED MEAT, SALMON, OILS, 

cooking food healthy dra martha castro noriega mexico tijuana

These nutritionally high-powered foods are marketed as a possible cure for heart disease, high cholesterol, obesity, diabetes, aging, and even cancer. Even though no official standards exist for the term “superfood,” it shows up in health magazines, blogs, and medical websites. Everyone is talking about the healing benefits of spirulina, acai berries, and chia seeds, and more.

However, this doesn’t mean that superfoods are just a fad. On the contrary – they boast a high nutritional value and exhibit health properties, such as decreased susceptibility to infections, cancer prevention, stronger hair, and nail, improves digestion, and stronger immunity. Other benefits of superfoods include increased energy, younger-looking skin, fat loss, and improved brain function. On top of that, there are no side effects to worry about.

CATCH: For the superfoods also known as healthy nutritious foods, to take full effect in your body you have to eat them everyday, not only once in a while or to be “in a eating healthy fashion”

ITALIAN FRUIT PARFAIT LIP BALM

TAKE: Be happy, eat everything you like: red meat (don’t panic, red meat is good for you), eat the right portions of anything “FOOD”, a well-balanced diet, exercise and you will live a happy healthy long life. Superfood is just a marketing term, it’s not a miracle.
