5 Simple Ways to Detox Your Life

spring detox“How are you doing today?”

I’m doing well.  Feeling great, thanks for asking.

8 out of 10 people will give this response but how accurate is it?

     Having grown accustomed to simply responding rather than reflecting, we automatically reply with this teleprompt of positivity that doesn’t always agree with our current state or condition. No room is granted for any sort of judgement or misconceptions accounted as some sick desperate plea for attention or perhaps another pity party.  Why the mask?  Simply put, because no one really cares or is it due to the fact we lack the full understanding of what  HEALTH consists of.

       Being in good health pertains to not only your physicalities but also your intellectual, and socioemotional well being. We must be HONEST with ourselves about the things that weigh us down. Most importantly we should be proactive in obtaining the life we really desire. Certainly, we can’t live forever but we can live longer, healthier, more fulfilling lives if we STOP ignoring the preventable signs of declining health [wellness].  Prior to signs and symptoms physically appearing, our mind and emotions give warning and alerts. If we slow down, look, listen, and  watch our bodies will point us in the right direction.  In observing ourselves in such a holistic manner, we improve our physicalities and likewise our intellectual and socioemotional well-being. For starters, you’ll need to clean house and get some structure.

 5 Simple Ways to DETOX your Life:


Whatever ignites you, drives you. If you feel strongly about a particular cause, project, or person chances are you will feel better once involved . That single spark may lead you on a path you never would have imagined or thought possible if you hadn’t consistently pursued its course. Passion drives purpose, gives hope, and motivates your focus.  Without it, you a ship without a sail.


There’s only 24 hours in a day and one of you so why waste precious time doing things that don’t stimulate your mind, body, and soul.  Use a calendar or day planner to organize your day. If it’s not on the agenda, put it off for another day or time until you accomplish those things that’s most important to you.  Spend more time with family, friends,  and associates who share common interest and goals as yourself.


The most detrimental condition upon your health is suppressed emotions, particularly negative ones. Everyone has experienced physical or emotional trauma to some level or degreee in their life. Depending on the level, we may need to disengage or disconnect with certain people or environments in order to gain clarity or peace from the situation. The devastation alone may carry over residuals of doubt, fear, guilt, or shame. We should allow ourselves the right to acknowledge those feelings then release them. By creating a positive channel of constructing that negativity, we will learn what we need in order to grow from it.

#4     GIVE

Sometimes the best way to detox is to simply give. Giving cleanses the heart of greed but also of responsibility. The more treasures you own, the more time, money, and attention you’ll need in order to keep it. It may be best to let some things go.


Our brains move faster than our bodies and some seniors will tell you, it’s also the first thing to go. Having said that, we make take time to disconnect from the technoligical world and reconnect with nature. Book a nature trip for a day or a simply sleep for an extra hour two on weekends without any disruptions.

Enjoy Life & S.I.P

Extinguishing Fear to Ignite Love


Our world is full of differences. Different tribes having different features, speaking different languages in different places, since the beginning of its creation the earth has boast of its diversity. With its many splendors of beauty and power, the world has evolved, but have we?  We change our hair, we change our locations, and even in marriage or other religious customs, we change our names. So how is it that we continually resist differences amongst our fellow earthlings, why do we resist change?  What we were accustomed to doing millions of years ago, may not be necessary today, yet we continue those customs. From infanthood to adulthood, we were taught who we ARE through the eyes of our parents, peers, and teachers. We were taught things about ourselves from others perspective, but how much did we experience and learn about others?How receptive are we of DIFFERENCES? We learned that girls are prettiest with straight blonde hair wearing pretty pink dresses on Easter Sunday prancing and playing with dull but daring young boys in blue slacks and white dress shirts. Our ideas and ideals were taught to us. We learned that our brave but uncivilized native American dwellers savagely danced their spirits free in the War on Independence to establish the Land of the Free except for African slaves.


We so violently painted brown and black soil with black and white blood. The earth received its return, the dirt we once were and ironically the dirt we’d become. We learned that hip hop is black and opera is white. Gay is a person, not happy or right. We learned to SUSPECT young boys but IGNORE black art. We learned to MAKE AMERICA GREAT again through immigration deports. But have we learned that what we FEAR in ourselves only tears us apart. No headscarf, robe, or banner, no religion, or non-religion is to blame. Rather it is our lack of proper education, our need to “keep it real” and our lack of enthusiasm that extinguishes our zeal. If we learn to embrace, encourage, and motivate our differences then and only then can we accommodate a world so different but reverently the same.

So we challenge you today to acknowledge what makes YOU different and what makes YOU great. Pass this challenge along, watch humanity extinguish fear and set love ablaze.

Yours truly,




Conscious Humanitarian Politics


Is is true? Can I love my country AND hate my government, all at the same time.

Well, literally speaking, NO!

Why? Because, a country is established by resources such as land, labor, and finances for the purpose of government.

However, many citizens of America feel that the catch phrase best suits their particular FEELINGS.

Personally speaking, have you drank the bitter waters of American politics all to be left abandoned in a dry and wearied land of dismay? Has the after taste been harder to swallow than the death of hope itself?

For those who serve our nation by land, air, or sea, they may FEEL the heaviness of such  a quote as listed above in the photo, but what difference would it make. They are bound by oath to fight the good fight in and out of season. They, above all others, are most prone to this disposition and for this reason, we are asking everyone to take a moment to reflect.

What are your true feelings regarding your country?

Why do you feel that way?  What knowledge (FACTS) support your feelings?

Is it better to be a lover or a fighter?

What options serve to the greater GOOD for all involved?

How can we remain PATRIOTS while abiding in a seemingly NATIONALISTIC government?

Where do we find balance?

Without further ado, let’s do what we came to do,

Language: The Great Wall of Confusion


Language is the blood of the soul into which thoughts run and out of which they grow.
– Oliver Wendell Holmeslanguage

If you talk to a man in a language he understands, THAT goes to his head.   If you talk to him in his language, THAT goes to his heart.        

– Nelson Mandela

Have you ever wondered how there came to be so many languages in the world? According to research conducted by the University of Pennsylvania in 2005’s ethnology report there are approximately 6, 900 living world languages. This research showed an  increase of approximately 200 living world languages within a 9 years time frame.

So why so many?

Well, there are many theories, mythologies, or opinions on how these languages came to be and why they are important. But again, why so many?

As linguist, psychologist, historians, and other professionals have attempted to explain the development and evolution of language, many are still left once more asking the question, why so many?

What purpose does language serve?

What are its forms and functions?

Which languages seem more attuned with mother nature? For what reason(s) is that so?


And is it possible to achieve a greater sense of world community if we all spoke the SAME language?

Would there be less confusion or more advancement in matters of politics, economics, or socialism if we all spoke the same language?

According to an article published in Scientific American, your language may affect your wealth and health? Hmm, interesting?

So everyone without further ado, let’s S.I.P!
