Stress, Complain, and Get Upset

We live life. This isn’t ever going away until the day we die. So that is fairly set in stone.

As we live our life, each day is met with events: second by second, minute by minute, hour by hour, and day by day. Good events, bad events, sad events, happy events.

This is our day. This is our path. There is no escaping this. It is our scheme how we let each event lead into the next event; this is our master plan, our grand illusion.

The way I see it, we have two choices. We can love each encounter and event, seek to share and exchange energy, and waltz through each moment of the day…. or we can get stressed, complain, and upset when the events don’t go as expected.

It’s your choice really.

Sharing Energy

Dwelling on the negative simply contributes to its power. ~Shirley MacLaine

Whether you want to believe it or not, every single day we are bombarded with energy. If from no other source than the sun that touches us. But it’s everywhere, it’s in the air, it’s from the plants, it’s from the people we walk by on the streets… and what we should be most aware of, is it comes from us! We are energy! Truly we are energy!

We are the epicenter of an energy source that floats around us. Think of it as though we are a beacon of light in the darkness. The energy is most bright at our core, and as it emenates outward it really does exist, but just less frequent.

Love.. Programming? …Instinct?

hearts, +, and hugs


This four letter word is more demanding of our thoughts than the strongest of all gale winds, wetter than the wettest of all storms, deeper than all rivers, and thicker than all trees. It follows us on every path, every road, greets us at every waking, and usually sends us to sleep every night. No matter at work, play, home, or away, love follows us.

Wherever you go, there you are ~Confucius

Love often sways our mood greatly. Those of us that get effected by sadness, love is usually a large player in that game. Happiness is usually associated with the freedom to love. Sometimes woes with our family comes from wanting to send with love some wisdom, and having our love insulted when the other doesn’t jump up and thank us for that same wisdom from the heart.

It is a weird bird, this love. Is it pesky? Is it warranted? Is it necessary? Are we being told to love, and therefor wanting to love? Continue reading

Cliff Bars

I am a fan of energy bars. There are some out there that simply do not agree with my stomach, like Vector, but there are some that work, like Clif Bars.

clif_0The folks at Clif are environmentalists wanting to make a difference. Directly from their webpage I shall quote: That’s why we’re working to understand our impacts from the field to our final product, and helping to create healthier, more sustainable communities in the following ways:

  • Sourcing organic ingredients and supporting organic agriculture
  • Engaging the people who grow, make, package, transport, and eat our food
  • Partnering and collaborating with innovative people and organizations
  • Encouraging hands-on volunteer service


In the thick and thin of things, every company that’s smart will boast that their product is organic, hands down, which is a good thing. Having an organic meal is second to none. Clif bar packages are stamped with a 70% organic emblem. What makes me like Clif Bars so much, is that they do indeed fill me up with one bar. I find with other bars I have to always eat at least two, and I don’t like to eat two.

The ingredients of their Clif bar are (which will vary slightly depending on the bar: Organic Brown Rice Syrup, ClifPro® (Soy Rice Crisp [Soy Protein Isolate, Rice Flour, Barley Malt Extract, Calcium Carbonate], Organic Roasted Soybeans, Organic Soy Flour), Organic Rolled Oats, Dried Apricots (Apricots, Evaporated Cane Juice, Rice Flour, Citric Acid, Ascorbic Acid), Organic Evaporated Cane Juice, ClifCrunch® (Organic Oat Fiber, Inulin [Chicory Extract], Organic Milled Flaxseed, Organic Oat Bran, Psyllium), Organic Dried Apples, Organic Date Paste, Organic Sunflower Oil, Natural Flavors, Citric Acid, Salt, Colored With Annatto.

My favorite right now is the chocolate mint or the chocolate almond fudge.

I highly suggest you take one for a test meal. They are a great meal on the go, and they cost $1.25~$2.00 in Canada which means you won’t be breaking the budget compared to a cafe where you’ll be paying ~$10 for a meal.

If you’re going on an outdoor adventure, these are a great small item to bring for your meals, but never forget the water!

However, I have been finding that staying on a steady diet of these over a month tends to make my stomach a little bit upset, mostly just making loud noises. You might want to try changing it up with other nutritious bars available out there, or more solid forms of food that aren’t processed like apples, bananas, oranges, etc.. Your local health store, or even supermarket will have an isle full of them!


Remember, eat right!
