I was born worried! After years of stressing my way through every day, I learned to just accept that I have more frets than a guitar. Looking back, constant worry is an incredible waste of energy, or to quote Mark Twain, "My life has been full of troubles, none of which ever happened." Still, caught in the throes of a worry, it had always seemed impossible to battle troubling thoughts when they crop up! Now, I am relieved to know 12 little words which are my magic mantra and remind me to nip worries in the bud! WORRYING IS ACTUALLY PRAYING FOR WHAT YOU DON'T WANT TO HAVE HAPPEN!
The next time you start to worry, project creatively by visualizing the positive outcome you would like to have happen. This is called Proactive Projection (or Meditation), which is the most powerful form of prayer. It transforms worry into meaningful action! It really works!

For someone whose nickname is "Rush," finding peaceful moments hasn't always been easy. But over the past 15 years or so I've found that meditation is a great way to connect with the peace and tranquility that's in my heart. That's why every morning when I wake up, I roll over, light a candle and then try to spend 20 minutes in meditation. Sometimes I might end up going for forty minutes, but twenty minutes is my minimum. There are mornings I feel extra tired or get up late, but I always try to fight through whatever obstacles I perceive are in my way and make the time for meditation.
Once I've meditated, I go downstairs and have a green juice (spinach, parsley, kale, cucumber and apple). After that, no matter what I've got on my plate for that day, I feel like I'm operating out of a peaceful, calm and contented state, instead of a rushed and needy one.
I made the most amazing dish last night. If you have an abundance of yellow squash you must try this!
Spicy Summer Squash
5 Yellow Squash (sliced thin)
1 small red onion (chopped)
1 Jalapeno (chopped without seeds)
3 TBL Coconut Oil
1 15.5 oz can of White Beans
Salt and Pepper to taste
In a pan over medium combine all ingredients except the beans. Cook until mixture is soft. Then add the beans and cook for another 10 minutes!
Peace, Love & Happiness,
