Skills are cheap. Passion is priceless.
For nearly twelve years, Dan and I have defined our passion to the world through our posts.
Through the website and blog, we have expressed our souls to you and through you we have been inspired to continue our mission.
This mission is to open your eyes to possibilities, hope and believing that there are other methods to keeping healthy.
Passion can be a little bit hard to define, but any of us can recognize it once we see it, whether in ourselves or others around us.
Some attribute passion to work and others to hobbies.
Some think about passion only romantically and others are simply passionate about every little thing that brings them joy.
To define it, Dan and I will say that passion is an intense feeling towards something or someone.
A feeling that gives you endless energy and enthusiasm when it comes to an activity or interest.
When you are passionate about something, nothing that has to do with it will ever become boring or tiring.
You will always think about all the positive outcomes that certain activity brings you, so getting over some of the not-so-great parts will never exhaust you.
So, on this Monday, what passion are you thinking about?
Dan and I posted some ways which we are practicing mindfulness, eating clean, moving your body, getting out into nature, laughing, detoxing from technology, practicing acts of kindness, and listening to relaxing music, connecting with a friend, sleeping in, reading a good book and self-reflection exercises.
Decluttering is a great way to nourish your soul.
There is a huge connection between the clutter we have weighing down our spirits and lives, and the clutter that we have in our physical space.
There are some great ways to let go, declutter, and find space for spiritual happiness.
You can declutter your closet, your decorations, your kitchen, and so many other parts of the space you live in.
You don’t have to do it all at once.
Take one day a week, your Saturday for example, to focus on one room of the house.
And clearing away that space often leaves people feeling lighter, more confident, and able to take on life as it comes.
As Dan and I have been sharing and continuing the book from last week, Ten-Minute Relaxation, For Mind and Body by Jennie Harding, until the end.
Whenever you are feeling under pressure, ten minutes is all you need to relax totally, using tools that are always with you; your senses.
This book is packed full of wonderfully simple ideas and exercises for using sight, taste, smell, hearing, and touch and that vital sixth sense of intuition to rebalance your energies and bring you back into harmony with the natural world around you.
Identify your favorite sensory relaxation solutions and combat that stress!
Per Dan and my experience this is another component in keeping ourselves healthy, meditation.
By using your five senses, you can learn to relax in just ten minutes.
CHAPTER 3; INTUITION/SIX SENSE
CREATIVE TASTE- TODAY, RECEIPE FOR THE FONDUE SAVOYARD FOR FOUR PEOPLE-
Two large French bread sticks cut into one-inch cubes.
One-pound Swiss Gruyere cheese finely grated.
Half of pound Swiss Emmental cheese finely grated.
Four levels teaspoons cornstarch.
Half pint or two and half cups dry white wine.
One teaspoon lemon juice.
Two large cloves of garlic, cut into halves.
Three teaspoons kirsch (optional).
Sprinkle of black pepper.
Sprinkle of freshly grated nutmeg.
Rub the cooking pot with half a garlic glove.
Put in the grated cheeses, cornstarch, white wine, and lemon juice and start it cooking on the hob over a very high heat, stirring constantly.
The cheese will form a large lump after about five minutes, but do not panic, just keep stirring.
In about another five minutes, the cheese melts and you have a bubbling sauce.
Add the rest of the garlic, the kirsch, and a sprinkle of black pepper and nutmeg.
To eat the fondue, spear your bread chunks on long forks and dip into the pot; making sure you delve right to the bottom.
You also stir the fondue as its carriers on cooking.
If the fondue thickens, warm a wineglassful of dry white wine in a pan and add it to the sauce to thin it out.
Tomorrow, CREATIVE SMELL-
As Dan and I start a new year; we will be posting daily 365 morning meditations for joyful days all year long.
The book is SUNRISE GRATITUDE by Emily Silva.
DEEP IN THE OCEAN there are mysteries yet to be discovered.
The wisdom in these depths is available, even without us finding them.
In stillness, we find the answers that lie deep inside us.
Our souls speak when we drown out all distractions, patiently waiting for us to find solitude so that we can connect.
In the quiet space, our anxious minds find peace and connection to the part of ourselves that is greater than any problem we face.
PHRASE TO REMEMBER; Health is Wealth.
We stand by this and continue to do daily; walk, meditation, and Qigong.
Until Tuesday, to succeed you must believe in something
with such passion that it becomes a reality.
