Glowing Forward

This little light of mine... I'm gonna let it shine...

I've gone and done it! Taking a step forward into another direction by creating this new blog! I'm excited as I seek my true passions this year, one is simply writing! I've spent countless hours writing other blogs, but those seem almost a lifetime ago. This is a new year and I am embarking on a new chapter in my life's path so I felt it was an appropriate time to start with a brand new sheet of paper!

There is so much to tell you but it will come in time. For now I will just keep it simple. As my life has progressed and some of my challenges are greater I have been seeking ways to create balance so that I can handle the long working hours I now keep. I am now over 40 and my body, and my patience reminds me that I need to find balance and manage more wisely. Lately its been reminding me in more pronounced ways like a lovely case of SHINGLES! This happened for a reason, and I know my true inner self wanted me to pause and take notice. Trust me you can not ignore shingles..... ever!

Another area I noticed besides shingles was I was having some skin issues, what goes on in our inside often presents itself as rashes or acne breakouts on our skin. You see our bodies are a marvelous creation and our skin, being the largest of its organs is our window to what is going on inside. My skin was letting me know loud and clear that there are issues.

I know that to maximize my energy I need to change a few things and do some "detoxing" in several areas of my life. This thought has been heavy on my mind since my little "shingles" event. I need to care better for myself at this stage. I can not simply stop working so I must figure out ways to create less stress for myself. As Irony would have it I was at the store buying some detox tea before work. I had a few moments of stolen time so strolled down the book isle and saw this brilliant green cover, picked up the book and after flipping through it instinctively knew I needed it. The book is called  The Beauty Detox Solution by Kimberly Snider  Reading through I realized it was addressing some of what I am experiencing, so at that moment it confirmed what I needed to do.

I hope you will follow along as I try to tackle the steps in this new chapter of my life "Glowing Forward" to a better place. 

Blessings my dear ones!
