What Does Happiness Mean To You?

Soulfully Happy Happiness I believe is experienced differently in every path you cross in your life. And it is experienced differently among others. You can ask your best friend, coworker, parent or teacher. I assure you, your peers and family members will give you various answers. That is nothing to feel discouraged about, it is pretty simple, we have to understand that this world is not being walked upon by only our feet. There are a bit over 7 billion people on planet Earth, maybe a few people experience similar paths as us. We can look towards others for inspiration but as long as we do not feel interest in specific areas of our life we might never feel lifted and optimistic. There were many times in my few years living, what, I am about 24, at the moment and so far life shown me many ups and downs. If I let the downs define how far I have come, of course, I would not feel happy, you know if you read between the lines …

The Mediterranean Diet

To be honest there is no perfect diet. It all depends on the individual partaking on the diet and what areas they are specifically targeting. However, recent studies have shown that certain ingredients play a huge role on your consumption and your overall health. Also, Iceland is no longer the number 1 country healthiest country. Guess who made it to number 1? Spain! Most of the foods in the Mediterranean diet emphasizes fruits, vegetables, legumes, seafood and poultry. But there is another reason why eating the Mediterranean diet is healthy. The secret: it is all about the herbs and spices! Here are some popular ones: Basil Oregano Parsley Thyme Rosemary Sage Bayleaf Lavender Marjoram Borage I have never had Borage or Lavender with any foods! Personally, my favourite spices are listed above and Cumin, Peppercorn, Turmeric, Garlic, and Ginger. There are a couple more but I cannot seem to list them off the top of my head For more information please check out Readers Digest and Taste of Home https://www.tasteofhome.com/ https://www.readersdigest.ca/food/healthy-food/mediterranean-diet-ingredients/

Finding Balance

If you’re juggling too many things, and you drop one, it will break. You will have less things to juggle. My experiences have been similar to the above quote. If you’re reading this and you’ve read my other post about how to decide, you’d know that stress and I do not mix well. That would be why I deem it very difficult to find a balance among all the chaos that life ensues upon us. Of course, we make choices and they lead to the outcomes we end up experiencing but, you know, some times we cannot help it and life throws us into a situation. These situations may become difficult to complete when there are other tasks at hand. Some people thrive in such environments, and I can too. However, when there are too many tasks I give up easily. That was how last summer went, after I began my 2nd placement. Mid way through — I think my brain had a short circuit — I stopped functioning properly. That was about the same …

It’s How You Decide

We make many decisions almost everyday, but do you sit down and think how much your decisions may effect where you will be heading in the future? Sometimes I question things, not because I am worried, it is just that I have many unanswered questions. I love writing those ideas down to look back later in my life, get and idea of how far I have come. Life is what you thought it to be. Unkown I have so many questions about life and a lot of those questions start with a “why?” I guess I am the only one who could answer those questions, once, I have reached my life’s full potential. I don’t know really. I mean it though, what do we really know about the life we live, other than what we do on a daily basis and small factors about our life such as age, race, ethnicity, family relations, peers, education, work, travel, costs/bills, where we want to go in the future, who we like, food we eat, hobbies, our personalities, …
