I Believe...

I Believe:
We are never too old to initiate a new career
We should have fun aging; after all it's just a number
We should not be afraid to start something new
We should always have faith in ourselves
Have no regrets!

Big People Baby Food!

I read this article while in a waiting room one day. Thought it would be a great idea to share. It was in the "Diet & Nutrition Magazine".
Note: Don't forget to check with the doctor to be sure this will be suitable for your baby.

""Infants and toddlers are better off eating home made food. It's less expensive for one thing. Store bought baby food is very bland, and most are heated to extreme high temps to sterilize them; which can kill many essential nutrients.

"Home made casseroles and stews are excellent. Mashed bananas and melon are good. Mash up or blend what you prepare for yourself. Be sure to finely chop any carrots, etc."

"Some tips:
freeze the baby food in ice cube trays. Once frozen, you can transfer the small ice cube-sized portions into freezer bags and date them. *It's important to use the food within 6 weeks of freezing*. When it's time to feed the baby, take out as many frozen cubes as you think you'll need and defrost them in the microwave or on low heat in a pan on the stove. You can also defrost them overnight in the frig"

Some other interesting things in the article to note and talk to the doctor about:
Babies under 12 months should not be fed cow's milk.
Avoid feeding them foods with high sugar and salt content.""

Inspiring and Motivating for a Sunday

Here is a piece from a fun little book called "Keep Believing in Yourself and Your Special Dreams". It's a book of inspiration and motivation.
"When the task at hand is a mountain in front of you...
It may seem too hard to climb.
But you don't have to climb it
all at once
just one step at a time.
Take one small step...
and one small step...
then another...
and you'll find...
the task at hand that was a mountain
in front of you... a mountain
you have climbed."

'In the Meantime'

Today I would like to share with you some words from a book I have been reading called 'In the Meantime' by Iyanla Vanzant. The book is all about finding yourself and the love you want. I have to say Iyanla has some very good thoughts and tools for finding yourself when you lose your way.

Try this thought for today - from the book...
"Relationships are meant to provide us with a structure in which we support one another in finding and sharing happiness"

That's the key for me - 'sharing happiness' has to be a two way street of communication, love, compassion, feelings, etc.

Oh, now I REALLY like this one from Suzanne Somers
"Where you come from is not where you have to stay"

I believe everyone has the ability to change. It's what you decide to do that matters! Change is growth, just think about it that way, and you can and will succeed at whatever you put your mind to.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend.
