Turmeric is one of my favorite herbs. I love the flavor AND it is known to have some great healthy benefits. I seriously tell everyone I know about my favorite morning tonic for bloating that features turmeric and brag about my turmeric lattes. I am obsessed! Plus, I have found that a good powder is just as beneficial as the fresh root, so it is easy to keep stored on hand.
What are some of the awesome benefits of turmeric? Here is an easy chart from Pinterest (because I am feeling a big lazy today)
Daring to set boundaries is about having the courage to love ourselves, even when we risk disappointing others. - Brene Brown
I have been rather disheartened lately by the overwhelming use of hateful and bullying commentary among strangers, friends, family members, etc. There is a building divide that is continuing to get worse as we fight among each other, eager for our voices to be heard, our opinions to be louder, and our beliefs to be justified. I do not think that this stems from a hateful place in our hearts, but it is becoming the common language. We choose to live in love or in fear. Unfortunately, when we live in fear, we are bound to respond to things in a language that steps far, far away from love and understanding.
I am the strange kind of human who LOVES goals. I love tracking them, re-evaluating them, and completing them. I also enjoy crossing things off my list when I no longer feel the drive or desire to complete them, which is totally cool, btw! I often see that New Year’s resolutions get a bad rep, and I get it. A lot of people (including the old me) make too many crazy, new, and ambitious goals that are often overwhelming. Ambition is good, but when we set our sights on a grand outcome that will take a lot of time to accomplish, we tend to get burnt out. This is why people dump their resolutions pretty quickly and why everyone makes fun of them.
