Health Is Wealth – The Most Important Thing Above All Else

Today, I really need to discuss an important thing in our lives and something that is in all of us whether its physical, medical, relationships, mental, emotional and everything that plays a role in our daily and nightly lives, and it is about health. Health is the most important thing in our lives. Lets face it, without it, we won’t be happy, and we won’t be wealthy in terms of it. It is more important than anything else. Material things come and go, but our health is number one out of everything else.

I know that this is a touchy subject to some people and if not all people, and I know that some people do not get lucky to live a fulfilling life because of some health issues that make people limited to do things and its so unfortunate on how people have to go through these terrible ordeals of dealing with debilitating diseases, cancers, illnesses, chronic problems, and things that happen in the human body. I know some things are not even in our control, things happen which is something unbelievable when we hear it from our doctors. Some make it and some do not unfortunately, but in the end our health is so important and what we do with our bodies is imperative to do our best to take care of ourselves, to eat better, to exercise, and to try as much as possible to prevent things from happening to our bodies. I know no matter how hard we try, sometimes things happen unfortunately, but prevention is key and we are all able to do anything we want. Sometimes for some cases its not possible, but nothing in the world is impossible, because remember I’M Possible. right?

When women get pregnant, and start a family some parents to be really concentrate on the gender of the baby and are so concerned about whether they will have a girl or a boy and the anticipation of it all is something that a lot of parents to be want to know, but in the end I do not think it should matter, as long as the baby and mother to be is healthy, and as long as the baby is well really should be something that is most important. I know the whole excitement of creating a nursery in the home, buying baby products, clothes and what colours to buy when you know you are having a baby, but those things should be the least of ones worry. A baby who is healthy and doing well, should be the best gift of all. All life is so precious no matter how they come into this world and that’s what should matter.

Health is so important at any age and unfortunately no matter what age you are, things happen to us.

Health is not just about physical and medical, health is also about how people deal with emotional, mental and relationship health. In this life we have so much stress, life has become so fast paced and there are not enough hours in the day sometimes to fulfill everything we need to do, and sometimes things happen out of the blue which we cannot get to, people are so busy with school, work, home and so many responsibilities pile up, commitments we must attend to and everyone has worries and everything, which can lead to mental, emotional stress and its a crazy thing we all go through. In this day in age, a lot of families do not have too much time together as people have to work a lot harder to upkeep, put a roof over their heads, and so much more. It puts a number on people and its an unfair world we live in these days, but I guess you gotta do what you gotta do right?

I myself had a health scare, but everything is good news and I am happy about it. Thank goodness and thank the Lord our God. Unfortunately some are not so lucky and do not make it which is crazy and I wish everyone well, a good clean bill of health and wishing everyone all the best with everything. You maybe battling and getting through each day, and playing it be ear and I wish everyone many blessings. God forbid anything happening to everyone. Lets put our health forward and concentrate on that the most and never lose hope. Always have faith, always live life positive. I know it is easier said than done, but positivity is the key to anything in life and no matter what life throws at us. All the best to all!

So take it easy and live life to the fullest.

Reuniting With A Very Special Person in My Life

Hello all, I am filled with excitement tonight as in a couple of hours, I will be reuniting with a great, close, special friend whom I call my sister for so many years now is coming to see me and I am so overwhelmed with happiness as she is getting near to my town to see me. It is the greatest feeling ever. I have not seen her since February 26, 2012 when I last visited Montreal and I am just so overly excited to see her again. I miss her so much and this is going to be a great reunion and we have so much catching up to do, and creating more memories. Those times we used to see each other 2-3 weeks at a time and I remember how much we used to see each other back in the day, but again it will feel great to be together instead of always messaging each other on Facebook, and text messages. Time to finally be physically together which is so much more awesome.

I am jumping for joy. When she told me she is coming this past week, I got so happy, emotional, and joyful at the same time and it was a feeling I will never forget. We may not be sisters in blood, but were sisters at heart, mind and soul, and I consider her part of my family. She is one of the most important people in my life and she has a big place in my heart, my world, my life and everything in my being. I have been awake all night and will pick her up in an hour and 40 minutes from now. I am super duper hyped up about this and so much time we have to make up for all the lost ones in from February, 2012, and up until today. Well, I must go, but time to get ready and time to enjoy. I feel like I am going to cry with happiness when I see her, so I gotta prepare myself :).

Don’t Try & Grow Up Too Fast. Take Each Phase Of Your Life As It Comes

Hello, I am sure this has been an issue in almost every household on how children want to grow up too fast and where they go to their moms or dads room to try on big shoes, put on make up, and try on mommy and daddy clothes. I myself have done that. Took my moms shoes, wore them, put on her dresses, put on the make up and then do a fashion show like on a catwalk runway. Then my mom put me to the side and said, Talin don’t try to grow up too fast and put make up on too early. She said everything has its time and you will get here soon enough. I sometimes could not wait to grow up so I can get into places over the age of 18, 19, 21 and start buying lotto tickets, but I have only bought one lotto ticket in my life and that was when I turned 18 years of age from what I was hearing when I was a kid being in adult conversations when company was over, or when we went to other people’s houses, I couldn’t help but hear adult conversations going on, so it intrigued me and that is where I learned these things, but I just continued to being a kid and playing with barbies and other toys.

I started going into Casinos at age 19 in Ontario and in Quebec. As well as Niagara, Falls New York. My curiosity sparked and I wanted to experience it, Not for the sole purpose of gambling, but to get into the casino and just walk around and see the different slot machines and table games. I am not much a gambler and a casino goer but I like to go there to walk around, relax and have a soft drink, water, coffee to relax and to be in the ambiance of colour, noise from the machines. Its pretty awesome, but the moral of the story is, to live every phase as it comes and to live every age the same way. When we are kids we want to grow up so fast and then when we become adults, I am sure almost all of us have said, I wish I was a kid again, I wish I was home playing, I wish I went back to elementary grade school, I wish I was a kid again to not worry about life and everything. Unfortunately we can’t turn back the clock and rewind to where we want to go in the past, but it is important to move forward in your life and take each time you have as it comes. When you feel young at heart, when you feel healthy and content, that is the best lottery you can ever win, and that is the best casino you can be in terms of health, body and soul.

Some people never get another chance at tomorrow, and tomorrow for some will never come. You live once, enjoy each year and make the most of your life. Life is precious and is given to you. You are the chosen one and your put on earth for a reason and you have to be the one to discover it. Life is a beautiful thing and it can be awesome, you have to make it awesome and you have to make life, not waste it away. turning 28 years old a month ago made me realize that wow I only have 2 more years of my 20′s and then I will be saying hello to my 30′s. Hopefully. Which is why you live for today, you live for tomorrow, and surviving in between is what we try to do, but always know, that when you want to grow up too fast, you miss a lot of your years. take it all in step by step, day by day. Growing up is becoming mature, and being mature is what makes you grow up. There is a big kid in all of us, but maturity is key. Life is what you make of it.

It is Important to Stand For What Is Right, & Take The Side That is Right

In My life, I have always learned about doing the right thing, and stand for what is right in the world, whether it’s a personal issue, being in society, in my community or whatever the case maybe. Before I jump in any opportunity or situation, I always think twice. Is it right? Is it not right? In the end the decision is in my court, but I always try to see things to be right. In a lot of cases, when people ask me for advice, and when people come to me to ask me is this the right way to do something? or is it right to be around people like this or that? 99.9% of the time, people come back to me and tell me, Talin you are so right about it, or Talin thank you for your advice, it worked really well. The other .01% that I did leave out was due to the other persons actions and words that I gave advice to. will that person listen and carry out the advice I gave him or her? It is always a wonder, but usually I get feedback all the time.

I strongly believe in standing for what is right, even if it means standing alone. I really like this quote a lot. You will know instantly. It is your gut instinct. If your gut instinct tells you to do it, do it, but if it is wrong, you always have to think with your mind before you can even think about something with your heart. These days the mind comes before the heart. When people think with their heart, sometimes it comes out to be the total opposite of what they were imagining a situation to be whether its something to do with a relationship, or anything else of that sort. I truly believe that when people think with their minds, the outcome is always better. The society has become such a thing that you have to be very careful of who you trust and you have to over-analyze and observe people before jumping into a friendship, relationship and companionship. It is very important not to jump into those ships too quickly because in the end it can make you or break you. I cannot stress how important it is to protect yourself at all times. Your emotional, mental and physical safety is very important. Yes although thinking with your heart is really an awesome thing to do, but these days you must think with your mind. I cannot put it any clearer than that. You have to make wise decisions about any situation you are in.

If people do not understand why you always want to do the right thing and when people leave you standing alone, it means that those people who leave you standing alone aren’t who they say they are, and they are not the true people you once thought you can trust and be around with. When you do something right and stand by the right side of things and when people stay with you, they are definitely keepers and then you will know exactly who is true and who is not. I know sometimes doing the right thing can be a wrong approach, but you did what you had to do, but always remember there are two sides to every story, but you have to be the one to judge if it is wrong or right. Keep an open mind, but close your heart unless it’s for the right person, people. Keep analyzing, keep on observing, keep on questioning. There is nothing wrong with that. Just protect yourself and life will go right.

My Back Pain Has Been Ruled Out To Be Sciatic Nerve

I went to visit my doctor the other day and I told him that, my lower back pain is unbearable and its an aching pain which is hitting all the way to my toes. He checked it out and he said that I have sciatic nerve and he said my back isn’t fully straight. I started to freak out a lot and I just got scared about it. So my doctor is going to send me to a chiropractor and I am going for massages for my lower back. I am so happy they approved it for me to go have these massages done. It is unbearable. When I stand up or lay flat, nothing happens and It is good and I don’t feel pain, but as soon as I sit down, The pain just rushes down to my toes and sometimes Its so painful that I end up sleeping it off. After 10-15 minutes of sitting, the pain starts again. The pain is hitting my abdomen pelvic area. I do have UTI (urinary tract infection), but I am going for an ultrasound and Cat Scan to see what is going on and to further it. I just need to get to the bottom of all this. I can’t do much when I have this pain and its terrible. I want to be able to not feel pain anymore. Its a chronic pain that keeps coming back. my thighs, my feet, my toes. all hurt as a result for lower back. I need to relax today and lay flat… I will see with what happens from here.

People Should Be Loved, Things Should Be Used. Not The Opposite.

Have you ever encountered people who use others and love material items? I am sure a lot of us have and it is a great course of concern when there are people who use others so much and take advantage of them so much that the only thing they care about are material gain and they appreciate and love materialism better than the people or person’s in their lives. Nothing else should matter in the world accept loving and appreciating people. I just cannot handle when people are being used like crazy and then tossed to the side when not needed anymore. I know I have blogged about this before in so many blogs ago, but I need to bring up and raise more awareness on this issue as its a really terrible thing to do. You can’t just toss people to the side, thinking its okay to do so. Someone can damage another persons life emotionally and mentally. It is not a good thing to do.

I am sure that we ourselves do not want to be used either. This issue is a serious matter. People do not realize it, but it is and its a ridiculous thing. people cannot just do this to others. Whatever happened to loving people? Whatever happened to appreciating people? Whatever happened to trying to include people in our lives? It hurts when people don’t want to have anything to do with you unless when needed, it hurts when people just toss you to the curb, it hurts when people play with your head and ask you how you are, and then afterwards asks you for a favor and then it gets embedded in your brain and people use your good heart, take advantage of you and everything else. Its beyond terrible. In General, if you see this happening or if this happens to you, learn how to say no and confront the situation.

It is very important to stand up for yourself and stand up for your rights in situations such as this one. Learn how to say no to people, always think about what your going to do for that person before you actually do it. Yes there are so many great people out there that never say no, who are soft-hearted, too nice, and will accept anything, do anything, but it shouldn’t be like it. Saying no is not a bad thing. Then you will figure out and see who stays behind and who is your true friend. It is very important to be observant in everything, and think with your mind before you think with your heart. Your heart is a soft place that always gets fooled, but when your mind thinks before the heart, 99.9% of the time you will get out of all your troubles and you will get out of anything. These days thinking with your brain is the way to go, then thinking with your heart is secondary. You have to really think about your actions before you do them and think about what your saying before you say it. It is very important or else people will find your weak point and use and take advantage of it all the time. You won’t know people are using you right off the bat. It takes a little time to realize it, but before it is too late, saying no is the way to go. Only say yes when you think its a valid reason and when you think its a great idea, but don’t just fall into any trap and don’t just fall into anything without taking two steps back and then analyzing it, then moving forward.

Do yourself that favor, you will see the difference you make in your own life and in your whole mind. Think then do at all times. In society these days, it’s the only way we will learn. Live and Learn, You can say no. Its not a bad thing. No shame in it. Try it out, you will see the results. Will people stay or go? You be the judge. Easier said than done right? No sweat. Just do it and see for yourself.

Looked In The Mirror This Morning, Liked What I Saw

I am really happy with the progress I have made to get slim and to get the weight off. I have been exercising Since last Tuesday March 13, 2012 and this is the 2nd week I have gone into my workout and I have learned to have portion control when I am eating and in moderation, I am drinking a lot more water, I am feeling so great after a nice walk around my area. Each day I am taking different routes so that it won’t become so boring seeing the same scenery over and over. The burn pain is excruciating and it might take several weeks until that burn pain diminishes, but I am going to beat it, I am going to fight it. It feels extremely great when I wake up in the morning and see my body in the mirror. I already see a difference. Not a huge one yet because I just started, but wow, I can see it happening and I am not going to give up. I have so many supporters and so many people who are encouraging me to do it and that power and the strength from others really helps me to do it. I thank you all for the courage and confidence you all gave me. I have a smile on my face every morning. This morning I saw myself in the mirror and I must say I am doing a great job for myself and my health. This is an incredible feeling. Pretty soon my whole wardrobe needs to change and pretty soon I got to hit the malls to shop shop shop for clothes and shoes because I think your shoe size changes slightly. I am beginning to feel my waist and tummy going down and I have these black pants that I wear and I feel it loose already, not a whole lot, but it’s getting there.

I still have not weighed, myself yet, but I feel like I don’t have to because I really feel it and I really love the way I look already. How I feel and how I look is very important to me. I am so excited to go shopping and fit into clothes and dresses without hesitation, without having to be embarrassed in front of people. Like once I was a bridesmaid for a good friend of mine and we tried on over 30 different dresses and none of them really suited me and my weight. I was so embarrassed about it and I said Oh my I have to do something. This is ridiculous. The humiliation from my face was so visible and I said to myself, I am going to lose this weight and now I am on my way. I tried on the most beautiful dresses, but none of the suited me, until we saw one and that one was beautiful too, but there was 2 or 3 of the dresses I had tried on that I really loved but could not wear. I am going to fight my battle with weight and I am determined to find those dresses and will buy those dresses and wear them. I remember when I went into a store with my mom and this sales lady that saw us when we were trying bridesmaids dresses for my good friend said, Hey I remember you came here with your friends about the bridesmaids dress and she said I did not want to say anything to you in front of your friends and especially the bride, but she said that you are a beautiful girl and you are such a lovely person, she said that you are throwing your great looks by your body and because I care about you, I want what is best for you, and she said that when you lose weight and lose the pounds, she said next time you come to my store and I am here, I will give you 50% discount off of any dress you like and I will give you another gift, she said all you need to do is lose the weight and you come back here and you will be rewarded by all the hard work. She said it will take sometime but she said do it.

I am very excited! Bye bye fat! Hello gorgeous body :)
