Weathering a Crap Storm
how to maintain your cool in un-cool situations
I gotta tell you, when it rains sometimes it pours but, the hallmark of the mature, fully functioning, self-actualized person is the ability to be cool, calm and collected when caught up in the inevitable crap storms daily life delivers.
The grounded person has the ability to continue talking to themselves in a positive and optimistic way, keeping their mind calm, clear and completely under control. The mature personality is more relaxed, confident, aware and capable of interpreting events more realistically and less emotionally than is the reactive immature person. As a result, the mature person exerts a far greater sense of control and influence over their environment, and is far less likely to be angry, upset, or distracted.
Here's a few tips that will help you weather the crap storm:
1.) Look upon the inevitable setbacks that you face as being temporary, specific and external.
2.) View the perceived negative situation as a single event that is not connected to other potential events and that is caused largely by external factors over which you can have little control.
3.) Simply refuse to see the event as being in any way permanent, pervasive or indicative of personal incompetence of inability. I call this denial. Sometimes you just need to fake until you make it.
Resolve to think like an optimist, no matter what happens. You may not be able to control events but you can control the way you react to them and this will go a long way to keep you cool in un-cool situations.
Thank you for your patronage.
Have a sensational week!

Concentrate and the Doors to Success Will Open
The first law of success is concentration. Bend all your energies to one point,
and go directly to that point, looking neither to the right nor the left.
By focusing your efforts to a single point, you'll always achieve the greatest results.
If you concentrate your efforts on a few major goals, your efficiency will soar, your projects will be completed, and you'll be going somewhere.
Focus totally on the business at hand and command yourself to do exactly what you want to do. If you focus the full power of all you are on what you have a burning desire to achieve, you'll attain success.

mooove over milk here's five nondairy sources
This magnificent mineral is the the most abundant in our human body. Calcium is used for more than just helping make strong bones, it helps with the function of muscles and nerves, keeps the heart pumping (a big muscle), helps with the production of hormones, blood clotting, and blood pressure. Other vitamins also need calcium to get absorbed such as iron and B12. Further, calcium is dependant on vitamin D for optimal absorption.
Do you think you may be deficient? If you suffer with skeletal problems, such as osteopenia, other hypertension, insomnia, or menstrual cramps, you may want to take a closer look at your calcium intake. However, also look at the things you may be doing that are lower your calcium, such as high caffeine, sugar, of soft drink intake.
Your goal per day is 1,000mg, but have you wondered how you can achieve that? Here's a few foods that can add in your daily diet. Your 5 non dairy sources are: vegetables, fruit, nuts, fish, and legumes.
1 cup raw kale: 90mg
1 navel orange: 60mg
1 oz of sesame seeds: 280mg
1 oz of sunflower seeds: 50mg
1 oz almonds: 80mg
3oz salmon: 180mg
½ cup of white beans: 100mg
1 cup of arugula: 125mg
1 cup cooked broccoli: 180mg
This would total 1,145mg! Consider taking the seeds and grinding in with a protein shake, or sprinkling them on a salad with the rest of your veggies and salmon.
Take action today and do a calcium check on yourself and make sure you are getting enough of this magnificent mineral!

not everybody will like you
by Madisyn Taylor
Not everybody we meet will like us and it is ok to move into acceptance rather than trying to make somebody like you.
It is not necessarily a pleasant experience, but there will be times in our lives when we come across people who do not like us. As we know, like attracts like, so usually when they don’t like us it is because they are not like us. Rather than taking it personally, we can let them be who they are, accepting that each of us is allowed to have different perspectives and opinions. When we give others that freedom, we claim it for ourselves as well, releasing ourselves from the need for their approval so we can devote our energy toward more rewarding pursuits.
While approval from others is a nice feeling, when we come to depend on it we may lose our way on our own path. There are those who will not like us no matter what we do, but that doesn’t mean that there is anything wrong with us. Each of us has our own filters built from our experiences over time. They may see in us something that is merely a projection of their understanding, but we have no control over the interpretations of others. The best we can do is to hope that the role we play in the script of their lives is helpful to them, and follow our own inner guidance with integrity.
As we reap the benefits of walking our perfect paths, we grow to appreciate the feeling of fully being ourselves. The need to have everyone like us will be replaced by the exhilaration of discovering that we are attracting like-minded individuals into our lives—people who like us because they understand and appreciate the truth of who we are. We free ourselves from trying to twist into shapes that will fit the spaces provided by others’ limited understanding and gain a new sense of freedom, allowing us to expand into becoming exactly who we’re meant to be. And in doing what we know to be right for us, we show others that they can do it too. Cocreating our lives with the universe and its energy of pure potential, we transcend limitations and empower ourselves to shine our unique light, fully and freely.
No Added Sugar, Diabetic Safe 1000 Island Dressing
Serving Size: 1 tablespoon
Carbs Per Serving: 1.4 g

Most burgers' secret sauces are simply Thousand Island Dressing. Thousand Island dressing has so many uses. I love it on Ruben Sandwiches, which I have such a craving for. For those of you living under a rock a Ruben is pastrami or corned beef, sauerkraut on grilled rye with swiss cheese and of course, thousand island dressing. But, the first thing that popped into my head is all the sugar that is in 1000 Island Dressing; over 3 times as much as soda pop. Wow! Here is a really easy 1000 Island Dressing Recipe and has almost no sugar and is diabetic friendly. Check it out!
1 cup mayonnaise

1 cup sugar free sweet pickle relish (see recipe here)
