Today's poem, please think about life. Being there for your loved ones, following your passions & ACTING. This is YOUR life, don't allow fears or ANYTHING hold you back. Time is precious & limited. I hope you enjoy. 

I am here

From life what do we expect?

Ourselves as well as others do we respect?

I followed the rules & I followed the path, 

So why do I feel like I am drowning even in a shallow bath?

 

I don't understand the pain that we feel, 

Often told by others it isn't real, 

No matter how hard we try to soothe the pain, 

There is always a storm & often rain, 

 

I feel you & I am always here, 

You aren't alone I am always near, 

Maybe in person or maybe in spirit but please don't doubt, 

I will always be about, 

 

I hope to set myself free, 

For you to see, 

That life is our own, 

Over the years we have grown, 

 

From the pain, 

From the rain, 

For the love that has been shown, 

With the support we have grown, 

 

I am proud of not stopping at the stop sign, 

From fate I am always looking out for my sign, 

I am proud of lifting others up even when they have put me down, 

For being brave to take on the town, 

 

I can be by your side, 

But have you been with me on my ride?

For those we help, 

In pain we feel we are dying as we yelp, 

 

Tomorrow isn't a given, 

So you are forgiven, 

We want to grow, 

Love & kindness you should always be choosing to show, 

 

The pain is real, 

I know how you feel, 

I wish I could heal pain of others & take the pain, 

I hate seeing people shedding tears & feeling the strain, 

 

All I can do is be the best person I can be, 

Follow my heart & be true to me, 

I am your friend, 

Right until the end, 

 

Call me in your hour of need, 

Our souls with our passions we need to feed, 

Life is short, 

Time can't be bought, 

 

Pick up the phone & call a friend, 

Your love to the world please send, 

Make that passion your work today, 

Be excited every day, 

 

Face a fear & inspire those around you, 

Be you, 

That is your biggest super power, 

There will always be a rain shower, 

 

Just know you are strong, 

You have known that all along, 

Nobody is immune, 

Don't sink into the gloom, 

 

I am here, 

Maybe in person or maybe in spirt but I am always near, 

Don't let your lust for life disappear, 

I am here.

COOKING TIPS

#1
Feeling sluggish and rubbish when you have woken up? Get boosting up on bananas the more the better - they will help settle your stomach, boosting digestion, they are a mood enhancer, they will give you the energy you need and keep you full. Buy my book for banana receipe ideas.
 
#2
Wake up every morning and ATLEAST have one glass of lemon water before doing anything else! Ideally try to drink a litre of water. The lemon wakes up your digestive system ready for the day and has great cleansing properties.
 
#3
Check your dairy and meat intake - dairy can sit in your system for up to seven days unable to digest properly. Meaning other foods also get neglected and nurtients aren't absorbed properly and you feel extremely bloated. Go and smell your food bin, your stomach will be in that state. Rotting foods in your belly - hmm nice.
 
#4
DO NOT FEAR CARBS - THEY ARE NOT THE ENEMY! CARB UP!!
Bananas, Rice, Potatoes, Leafy Greens, Corn, Beans, Lentils etc PACK THEM IN GO MAD.
 
#5
NEVER COUNT CALORIES - NEVER RESTRICT!! These restriction 'starvation' diets who tell you to only eat 500 calories a day then have a treat day - where you binge out and eat WAY too much, is simply messing up your metabolism and on your binge days yours body stores all the fat meaning you gain weight because it knows it is going to go back into starvation mode and needs to hold onto every little thing it can. HELLO WEIGHT GAIN. 

Life is too short not to live it to the full, making yourself happy.
