YOU and Never Settle

 

 

It is only 2 words but for YOU and each of us it is 2 very important

Words.

 

NEVER SETTLE

 

Do not settle for less than you deserve.  That applies to

everything in life.  If you consider yourself a person of high value,

which you should, then you should set a high standard for who

you associate with.  That could include friends, boyfriends, or co-

workers.

 

YOUR image should be a person of high worth

 

This blog, podcast and all on this website are to raise you to

the highest level of development, what you aspire to, how to get

healthy, and be a productive person and:

 

What Does Life Expect from YOU?

 

Finding out what life expect from you – in mind, body and spirit.

 

Set your standards for SELF high- because YOU are

 

You can expect only the best for YOU and from YOU

 

Building a life of high quality and high standards and never

settling for less.

  1. Always look to upgrade

 

In relationships especially

 

  1. Friends are a dime a dozen

 

Branch out to find some wonderful friendships around

 

  1. Aim for perfect

 

Never expect to achieve perfection, but never give up in          pursuit of it.

 

  1. Embrace change

 

One of my favorite challenging things in life change

 

Have the attitude that you derive the best in life, great things will

come your way.  Eat the best foods, see the best places, and

meet the best people

 

Never settle in a relationship

 

Here are some wonder quotes about SETTLING

 

Rule #1

Never be #2

 

Don’t get what you kind of sort of want.

Get what you actually really want.

 

Sometimes you have to walk away from what you want to find

What you deserve

 

Let go of what you are used to

Wait for what you deserve

 

I know what I bring to the table

So trust me when I say I am not afraid to eat alone

 

Never get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life

 

I can’t settle for just anything, my daughter is watching me

 

It might hurt to walk away but that will never compare to the pain of staying.

Don’t let the fear of being alone, keep you in a relationship

Where you are alone

 

Sometimes life is about risking everything for a dream no one can see but you

 

Stay hungry, never settle

 

Never forget that walking away from something unhealthy is BRAVE – even if you stumble a little on way out the door

 

By doing what you love, you inspire and awaken the hearts of others.

 

YOU are what you settle for

 

Never stop learning, because life never stops teaching.

 

Love

Trust

Honesty

Magic

Chemistry

Do not settle for anything less

My childhood was very controlled –although I had a great

childhood but we need to be able to do:

 

Critical thinking

 

Decision-making skills

 

Along the way in us from Birth through adulthood so we develop

correctly along the way.

 

And most times a parent does not know how critical both of those

 

Development processes are for being a well-adjusted adult

throughout your life and develop:

 

What Does Life Expect from You?

 

This blog is about Piaget’s stages of cognitive development to

 

Make sure that you look at yourself and understand where or if

YOU may need to work on anything in this area because there

are always going to be area’s of life’s development that you are

going to need to develop into that person who knows:

 

What Does Life Expect from YOU?

 

And you will not know that if you do know ALL of YOU.

 

So, today we will be looking into this topic:

 

Piaget’s stages of cognitive development are good rule to go by:

 

Reflexive stage

Primary circular

Secondary circular

Coordination of secondary reactions

Tertiary circular reactions

Invention of new means through mental combination

 

And on and on – which we will go over the remainder down the

Road.

I am sure I did not even get the basic listed above because I was

born before Piaget came up with stages.  But, we lived very

controlled because I believed everyone lived like we did.

And then I married a person who controlled me just like me

childhood was controlled only with a little mental abuse going

along with it.

 

Remember, whatever type of childhood you had YOU are in

Control of from now on YOU do from this day forward so that

YOU

Know:

What Does Life Expect from YOU?

 

Our view of our history – our childhood, teen years, and early

adulthood.

 

We all develop differently because we are all different and

Unique.

Mentality we all need to have a checklist:

My checklist includes:

 

Being more patient with people who are not:

 

Planners

Time Managers

 

But, everyone else I can” Let God and Let Go” very well.  So my

thing is to forgive these people and go lightly on them and not

condemn them because they are not efficient and effective in

their personal and professional life.  Also, forgive myself for

having expectations from other people because I have high

expectation for SELF and so I can complete:

 

What Does Life Expect from ME?

 

And know my purpose and my life is meaningful to me and that

I have not wasted and have no regrets at the end.

 

When a person has been controlled by people, places or things

It does take time to develop SELF:  and YOU can do it over time

By writing in a journal, prayer, meditation or being self-aware and

Develop SELF so you can know about YOUR:

 

Purpose

Meaningful Life

What Does Life expect from YOU?

YOU are in charge of how much nutrition YOUR body needs

Because YOU are the only one with YOUR unique body.

So, gear up and have courage about:

 

The 4 key nutrients your body needs:

  1. Fat
  1. Saturated Fat
  1. Sugars
  1. Sodium

 

And of course, the big ones:

Protein

Carbohydrates

Fiber

Vitamins & Minerals

 

Because YOUR nutrition and nutrients are different than anyone

Else’s nutrition and nutrients YOU need to know about YOU

And that is what this website and only this website helps YOU

Learn about YOU.  Especially, the podcast talks about the

 

Unique YOU with all your characteristics

 

Look at food that provides nourishment for the body to do

What YOU need to do in life so that:

What Does Life Expect from YOU?

 

YOU will know and grow

 

Substances which provide energy:

Energy is not a nutrient but food energy is important for

providing energy for YOUR daily activities.

 

Protein, fats, and carbohydrates are converted into energy in

different quantities.  Vitamins and minerals are essential nutrients

for the body but are not converted into energy

 

Energy is required to fuel body processes and physical activity.

 

Fat

Fat contributes to energy intake and helps you absorb is vital

Vitamins, therefore a healthy diet should always contain a certain

amount of fat.

Saturated fat is predominately from animal sources

Unsaturated is predominately from vegetable sources

Too much-saturated fat can raise blood cholesterol and can

Increase risk of heart disease.  Intake should be no more than

Your daily recommended intake-LEARN what YOUR Intake

Should be-YOUR Uniqueness.

 

Sugars

Sugars are carbohydrates that provide the body with energy, our

body’s fuel.  They occur naturally in fruit, vegetables, and dairy

foods.  Try not to use anything with man-made sugars in them-

almost any amount of man-made anything will put YOUR body

into the disease mode.

 

Sodium

I have already done a blog about how important salt is to our

body – refer back to that blog.

Only use unrefined salt like the blog talks about – STOP buying

Any other kinds of salt – for YOUR best interest.

 

Protein

Important for the growth and repair of the body’s cells and for

building muscle.

 

It can also be used to provide energy.  Some good sources of

protein:  fish, meat, chicken, eggs, milk, cheese, and yogurt are

animal sources

 

 

Vegetables based protein include legumes, soybeans, baked

beans, kidney beans chickpeas and lentils, nuts and seeds.

Choose protein-rich foods that are low in saturated fat.

 

 

Carbohydrates

The main source of energy that fuels our body and everything it does,

even thinking.  They are sugars and starches.  Try to each natural

carbohydrates found in fruit and some vegetables, dairy foods.

 

Limit man-made carbohydrates that are made in laboratories and

that, as YOU age, will create problems in your digestive system

and add fat to your structure.

There will be several topics in today’s blog:

 

Like I have said over and over again here in these blogs is that

I do prevention against disease; against cancer, diabetes,

arthritis, and any other disease, any autoimmune disease is

really any disease plus inflammations of anything in the body.

 

My goal is to never have any of the above.  I had already

become hypothyroid in the 1980s and have been determined not

to have anything else that would cause me any disease.  So far,

I have not had any other disease besides that which being

Hypothyroid is enough because one is more susceptible to

cancer, diabetes, and heart disease being hypothyroid so I take

care nutritionally of my body.

 

Since each of us is unique in body structure with genes and

DNA plus a mired of other factors you need to feed your body

nutrition that will keep you from disease and this website gives

YOU the tools to know your body, mind, and spirit to keep SELF

Healthy while you age.

 

You need to know how much of each you body needs but

be sure you are putting into your body the best quality you can

afford anything because You are in control of YOUR body and

whether it gets any disease or not.

 

I believe I would not have gotten hypothyroidism if I had known that

Iodine was the one thing my thyroid runs on and my body was

running out of Iodine.

 

Below is a list for nutrition that YOUR body needs:

 

Protein

 

When you eat foods that contain protein, they are broken down in the body into amino acids.  These amino acids are used to build and repair any muscle tissue.  This is great for those who are physically active or exercise regularly.  You are able to recover at a faster rate than if you do not consume protein.  Every tissue in your body is made up of protein and you need to consume enough through your diet to replenish it.  Protein is also needed to help your immune and nervous system.

 

 

Carbohydrates

Gives you energy to function throughout your day.  Good carbs

Can be from vegetables and fruits.  When carbs are ingested your pancreas releases a hormone called insulin.  Insulin helps the carbs to be stored in the muscles or as fat.  Stored carbs in the body are also known as glycogen.  They are an energy supply and help to achieve better fat loss but help in overall physique.

 

Fats

Without fats, you will not be able to survive.  They keep your body warm during cold weather.  Fats lubricate joints and keep your muscles loose and mobile for good workouts.

 

Personally, I eat Irish Gold butter which is an excellent fat, I eat cottage cheese not a lot but a little.  I eat beef which has some good fat.

 

I stay away from bad fats – anything man-made is bad fat or anything else for that matter.

 

Natural fat is good fat, man-made and processed fat is bad.

 

 

Vitamins and minerals,

 

I make sure I also get enough vitamins and minerals.  B-complex

Is very important.  I drink Yerba mate tea-250 minerals from south

American.  Because I drink some distilled water I take Dr. Marshall’s pink salt for another good dose of minerals.

 

Water

Always, enough – not too much and not too little.  I have 2 types

Filtered water at home-a PH alkaline water filter and a distilling machine for water and that is all the water I drink from those 2 sources.

YOU and Energy

As you will have noticed from reading the blogs on this

website there are several types of energy in YOUR body,

mind and spirit.

 

Energy from your body that makes everything work together

to produce energy and fuel that helps your body function

at the highest level possible – helping you to exercise, and

give you stamina.  This type of energy comes partly from your

thyroid and the fact that it is working at the highest level

possible.  Blood type 0 has a high propensity to having thyroid

problems – so make sure your thyroid has enough iodine (I use

nascent iodine) and that is after 30 years of having thyroid

problems and not knowing how important iodine is).

But, the other energy comes from energy flowing throughout

YOUR body and extends beyond your body and probably from

science what Shamans have known for ever mixes with the

energy from other around you and the whole universal

energy.

So that energy comes from how healthy your body is and how

it flows throughout your body.   And the higher the energy level

of hertz the better energy flows up and down, and in and out so

keeping the PH level and energy flowing it is always for the

betterment of YOU.

 

It is up to YOU to keep the energy and make sure YOUR body

Is kept healthy and high on good organic food, and by

Exercising to keep everything running at the top level of

Energy YOU can.

It is about YOU and it will only happen because of YOU.

Do you have the courage to find out?

 

WHAT LIFE EXPECTS OF YOU?

 

It takes courage and time to get YOU into the healthy

And happy shape so you can age well.

YOU are extraordinary – I am sorry YOU have to prove that

everyday.

YOU have to know your body, mind and spirit so that YOU

Know how and what makes YOUR body run at it’s highest

Level and best maintained function.  YOU will not know that

By listening to well-intentioned family, friends, and any other

Environment you are in.

IT IS ABOUT YOU KNOWING YOU.

Do not worry about what family and friends think of you.

YOU are on a MISSION:

TO FIND OUT;

 

WHAT LIFE EXPECTS FROM YOU

 

That takes time and effort on YOUR part because YOUR

BODY, MIND, AND SPIRIT NEEDS TO BE BALANCED

And you need to know what power your sub-consciousness can

Sub-conscious mind can provide the answer if you put in the time

It is all powerful, provides the energy you need, provides the

Creativity you need so you know:

 

WHAT LIFE EXPECTS FROM YOU

It is a daily walk with SELF – and of course, YOUR Higher Power

that has connected everything from the universe to the little lady

bug.

 

You would not be here, at this website, on this day, and at this

 

Time if YOU did not want to find out about

WHAT LIFE EXPECTS FROM YOU

YOU will build your own TOOLBOX of  SELFhood so that you will

know:

 

WHAT LIFE EXPECT FROM YOU

high protein, low carb dietWhen you go to buy foods that are marked “organic” you need to

do your research on what the FDA qualifies as “organic”?

Revised rules went into effect on Oct. 21, 2002 and the

Latest USDA definition states:

Organic food is produced by farmers who emphasize the use of

renewable resources and the conservation of soil and water to

enhance environmental quality for future generations.  Organic

meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products come from animals that

are given no antibiotics or growth hormones.  Organic food is

produced without using most conventional pesticides; petroleum-

based fertilizers or sewage sludge-based fertilizer;

bioengineering; or ionizing radiation.  Before a product can be

labeled “organic,” a Government-approved certified inspect the

farms where the food is grown to make sure the farmer is

following all the rules necessary to meet USDA organic

standards.  Companies that handle or process organic food

before it gets to your local supermarket or restaurant must be

certified, too.

BUT, you need to think about the following when you are

shopping in your neighborhood grocery store:

  1. The air and weather has been loaded down with metals

and toxins for years now.

  1. The soil has been depleted of nutrients for years now.
  1. The seeds that are used for growing YOUR food have

all been genially engineered, and for fast growing at that.

 

So I buy the best quality fresh vegetables I can afford, I buy

vegetables that I have to peel-carrots, beets, cucumbers, and

others that I can peel or have a thick skin,

The most nutrients I put in my body every week is the juice

I make:  chard with turmeric, olive oil and black pepper or

carrot juice with fresh ginger root.  You can freeze individual

portions and use within 1 week.

 

Although it is difficult to say I do this 100% of the time-but I try

hard not to buy anything in a:  bag, box, or canned food.

I do buy tuna fish at Whole Foods, plus I buy Whole Foods

365 brand.

 

EAT LESS, BUY BEST QUALITY YOU CAN AFFORD

 

You are going to have to supplement because of the conditions

that the food is grown and processed anymore.  50 to 100 or

more years ago the environment and soils were organic but

that is not the case anymore.

 

Read, do YOUR research so You understand the process of

the food you and YOUR family eat anymore.

The grains and how they affect your digestive system and YOUR

body.

The sky’s are being sprayed and that is having a terrible effect

on YOUR body and the food you put in it.  Toxins and heavy

metals that do damage to your body.  BEWARE – BEWARE

Over time all these negative items going into your body

will make your body diseased and sick.  Not only will YOUR

body become sick but YOU will die sick and I know that is

not what you want for you, your children or your family and

friends.

 

We want to die of old age and happy and healthy.  Not hooked

up to any machine where our family and friends stand around

waiting for me to die.

The inward journey

“The longest journey is the journey inward.”

Dag Hammarskjöld, Markings

This quote  is from Dag Hammarskjold (July 29, 1905 — September 18, 1961) who served as the second Secretary General United Nations, and the only UN Secretary-General to die that office.
Reading something profound like the above moves me to empower SELF, seeks to improve SELF, and appreciate SELF.

What does it do for YOU?

Reading books, non-fiction, biographies, auto-biographies will empower SELF.
When I read about a specific topic, I try to read at least five other authors’ view on the same  subject to get their theories or thoughts.  Never read just one author’s opinion on topic-because YOUR MIND will get stuck in their theory or thought.
