Yesterday was a tough day. I felt cranky and out of sorts all day long! A good friend listened to me whine and after talking with her I felt soooo much better! Sometimes all it takes is someone listening to help put you back on the right track. After I talked with her, I remembered what is so easy to forget: When you feel bad, down, etc., the best thing you can do is to do something for someone else. In the darkest moments, remembering to be the light for someone else tends to smooth the rough edges and ease crankiness like nothing else!
When all else fails and you feel like giving up – Be the Light.
When everyone has gone and you are all alone – Be the Light.
When lovers leave and the heart shatters into pieces – Be the Light.
When the bank account goes empty – Be the Light.
In the face of overwhelming circumstances – Be the Light.
In all things, in all that you do, remember that you are the Light.
And when you remember your brightness, failures become victories, new friends materialize out of thin air, soul mates replace lost lovers, money flows effortlessly, circumstances become glorious and everywhere you go, you heal, uplift and inspire.
Be the Light. Keep Shining. Peace Out!
In order to shine and light up the world, you need nourishment that helps keep your light bright. I try to drink the following smoothie — or some variation of it everyday. Incidentally, I skipped my smoothie yesterday. I don’t know that not drinking my liquid sunshine caused my bad day — but I do know that when I start my day with it, I feel fabulous!
Put all ingredients in blender in the following order:
3 cups fresh water
2 bananas, peeled
1 cup chopped mango
1 cup blueberries
4 cup greens (any kind)
About 1/3 cup raw vegan protein powered — I’m currently using Raw Fit, plain flavor
1 tsp spirulina
2 Tbsp Nutiva Coconut Manna
A handful of raw walnuts
Blend for around 1 – 2 minutes until smooth. Enjoy and Shine!
