LOVE AND BE LOVED

Hello guys. Inspired by my life and love I have to share some words with you!

True Love

Everyone wants to love and be loved. I hear it a lot that isn't an easy journey to find TRUE love. Actually it can be really simple, in my opinion. Listen to your heart , to your true self that knows everything... it doesn't look that simple to you?? I will explain:

1. Love yourself first

It is impossible to give and receive love without loving yourself more than anything! Loving YOU first means respecting your opinions, your feelings and your wishes... and that makes it all easier. It comes from the inside out. Your true voice will talk, your heart will feel and you'll respond to your feelings.

2. Finding love

I won't say love is around the corner, because I know we don't find it every time we cross the street. But when you find it, you will know. There is no other way around, there is no doubt! It is just there... it's not a PERFECT feeling... nothing in this World is perfect. But it is just right, just the way it has to be, it's just enough, it's FULFILLING.

I know, I know you must had heard that a million times: " one day you will find it"...

So don't torture yourself on your way to this beautiful path. Just go with the flow. Do never forget, YOU always come first.

 

3. Little tips to follow when you have found love:

  • FOOD tastes much better if made with love! So cook with your heart and for the ones you cherish. Try these 5 recipes for chocolate lovers (1 is my recipe!)
  • Give yourself some little "me time" once a while. Take little breaks only to do your hobbies, or something that makes you happy.
  • Sunbathe. You won't believe how wonderful you'll feel after some sunshine on your skin (don't forget the sun screen)
  • Be around people that make you feel good and share good moments with them!
  • Have a pet if you can... loving the animals is one pure great feeling!
  • Spend time with children! They make you happy, they make you LOVE them.

Natures Food, Designed for Humans?

NATURE AMAZES ME. EVERY SINGLE DAY. Creation speaks loudly, if we would only listen to her voice, we might hear her heart beating closely, to that of our own.

FOOD. Something we think of at least 3 times a day, often more, often without noticing it's intricate design or thinking of it's designer. Maybe it's time we took a closer look.

Fungi for health?... Many mushrooms boast highly of their anti-cancer properties, & yet look at them! Almost like little tumors, springing up all over this tree, hint hint!... Excellent for boosting the human immune system.

Have you ever indulged in devouring a pomegranate, one seed at a time ;) ?... The little seeds, covered in a bubble of antioxidant rich juice & coloured blood red remind me of the cells in human blood which they seek to rejuvenate with their life giving enzymes & vitamins. The seeds contain potent bitter antioxidants too, which protect the cells against free radicals, preventing cancers & promoting youthfullness.

The tomato, excellent for the human heart, looks just like one.

The carrot, sliced into rings; behold & see the human iris as it stares back at you, hinting subtly!! I'm good for you, for your EYES in fact. Helping to prevent macular degeneration & promoting healthy vision.

Look at the fine veins within leafy vegetables. The bursting colour of fruits of all kinds, the cell segments within oranges, berries, kiwi-fruit.

Sweet potato, does it remind you of anything?... It looks like an intestine!

The gorgeous shape & texture of the avocado. Did you know that seeds of all kinds promote fertility?

I'm so ASTONISHED when I crack open fresh walnuts. Why?... Well don't they remind you of something??? Dah. Haha. There's definitely a sense of humour there somewhere wouldn't you agree? To think that they are created, designed, to look like the human brain? WOW. Hint hint, 'eat me'!

I'd never noticed that the tiny, potent chia seed is really quite grey, until this morning, & I've been eating them for years! Another super brain food rich in all omega fats.

There are so many various foods which I haven't touched on, celery, herbs of all kinds, bananas, apples, stonefruit, legumes, grains, grasses, flowers (excellent for mood enhancement!). So much variety in colour, texture, flavour. Bitter, pungent, sweet, salty. AMAZING variety abounds! Let's take a subtle or maybe not so subtle tip from NATURE! ENJOY HER BOUNTIFUL GIFTS TODAY, GIVE YOUR BODY what it craves, NATURES very own FOODS, DESIGNED FOR HUMANS. Take note of your next meal, the colours, the shapes it contains, keep it as close to nature as possible & reap the benefits for your internal organs, skin, bones, & feel each of your body systems respond with vitality & life.

A book you may enjoy which highlights many natural varied foods & food groups is 'Laugh with Health'. Excellent for beginning health buffs with simple, fast info; it lists the nutrients, medicinal properties & benefits of each food page by page with great pictures too. I encourage you to have it in your healthy library.
