Achieving your own happiness is the best measure of how well you are living your life and enjoying your relationships. You can learn how to be happier and more fulfilled in everything you do.

Happiness in life is like a smorgasbord. If 100 people went to a smorgasbord and each put food on their plate in the quantity and mix that each felt would be most pleasing to him, every plate would be different. Even a husband and wife would go up to the smorgasbord and come back with plates that looked completely different. Happiness is the same way. Each person requires a particular combination of those ingredients to feel the very best about himself or herself.

And your mix is changing continually. If you went to the same smorgasbord every day for a year, you probably would come back with a different plateful of food each time. Each day-sometimes each hour-only you can tell what it takes to make you happy. Therefore, the only way to judge whether a job, a relationship, an investment, or any decision, is right for you is to get in touch with your feelings and listen to your heart.

You’re true to yourself only when you follow your inner light, when you listen to what Ralph Waldo Emerson called the “still, small voice within.” You’re being the very best person you can be only when you have the courage and the fortitude to allow your definition of happiness, whatever it may be, to be the guiding light of every part of your life.

A very important point on the subject of happiness is whether or not you feel that you “deserve” to be happy.

Accept the notion that you deserve all the happiness you can honestly attain through the application of your talents and abilities. The more you like and respect yourself, the more deserving you will feel of the good things in life. And the more deserving you feel, the more likely you will attain and hold on to the happiness you are working toward.

You should make happiness the organizing principle of your life. Compare every possible action and decision you make against your standard of happiness to see whether that action would make you happier or unhappier. Soon, you will discover that almost all of the problems in your life come from choices that you have made - or are currently making - that do not contribute to your happiness.

Of course, there are countless times when you will have to do little things that don’t make you happy along the way toward those larger things that make you very happy indeed. We call this paying the price of success in advance. You must pay your dues.

Sometimes these interim steps don’t make you happy directly, but the happiness you achieve from attaining your goal will be so great that it totally overwhelms the temporary inconveniences and dissatisfactions you have to endure in order to get there.

Here are three steps you can take immediately to put these ideas into action.

First, accept that you deserve all the joy and happiness you can possibly achieve through your own efforts.

Second, make your own happiness the chief organizing principle of your life and judge everything against that standard.

Third, be willing to work hard and pay the price for the satisfaction and rewards you desire. Always go the extra mile and your success will be assured.

Green Tea Potent in Fighting Cancer

A new study indicates green tea's ability to fight cancer is even more potent and varied than scientists have suspected.

Researchers say they've discovered chemicals in green tea that shut down one of the key molecules that tobacco relies upon to cause cancer. It's a find that could help explain why people who drink green tea are less likely to develop cancer.

The finding by scientists at the University of Rochester's Environmental Health Science Center appears in the journal Chemical Research in Toxicology, published by the American Chemical Society.

Steviva Brands, Inc. sells a Green tea called Yerba Mate (pronounced "yerba mahtay"). Yerba Mate is a medicinal and cultural drink of ancient origins. Introduced to the world by the Guarani Indians of South America, Mate contains ingredients that help keep its drinkers healthy and energetic. More than a drink, Yerba Mate has become a cultural phenomenon throughout South America. Its benefits are obvious. In Buenos Aires, where people carry their Mate with them throughout the day, the site of an obese person is rare.

Try Steviva Brand Yerba Mate with Steviva Brand Tea Cut Stevia Leaves. This make a delicious tonic that will keep you going for hours without the dreaded Caffiene come down. Order today and we will double your order!!!

Be Open To Change

“Balance is a dynamic process; it changes with the days, the seasons, the years.”

-- Sherrill Sellman

How rigid are your routines? Do you exercise for 30 minutes, three times each week no matter how you feel?

Routines and structure can provide a valuable framework to bring discipline to our lives. At the same time, we are always changing and it’s wise to be sensitive to our physical, emotional and mental states so we can ensure that our activities truly meet our needs. We need to be willing to change our patterns when our practices no longer serve us.

“Only in growth, reform, and change, paradoxically enough, is true security to be found.”

-- Anne Morrow Lindbergh

“The smallest change in perspective can transform a life. What tiny attitude adjustment might turn your world around?”

-- Oprah

Sugar Free Gluten Free All Natural Battle Cake
(makes 10 servings)

1 ¼ cup rice flour
¾ cup tapioca flour
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp soda
½ tsp salt
½ tsp pure Steviva Brand Stevia Powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
1 tsp nutmeg
1/3 cup oil
1 egg
1 apple, sliced thin
1 cup water
½ cup raisins
1 cup dates

Step 1: Chop the dates, add them to the water and raisins in a saucepan, and bring to a boil, simmer until the dates are mushy.

Step 2: Add all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl and mix them well.

Step 3: Pour the oil into a bowl. Add the egg and mix well. Add the sliced apple and mix it well. Add the water/raisins/dates mixture and mix well.

Step 4: Combine the contents of the two bowls, add liquid if needed, and pour into a greased pie plate (see note below). Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.

Note 1: A Pyrex pie plate works best. For a super non-stick surface, put a tablespoon of oil in the pie plate, add a tablespoon of liquid lecithin, and mix them together, then coat the surface with the mixture.
Note 2: Children love Battle cake. The cake is great hot or cold. Goes nice with tea or coffee, or probably any type of cold beverage.
