This guy is amazing!

Adam Ruins Everything is this great show I just found. Adam does a ton of research and dispels common “truths” or beliefs. Just do a Youtube search and you will learn about everything from “Why Pure Bred Dogs Are Bad” to “Herpes-Almost Everyone has it and It’s OK!”

You know how much I love getting to the TRUTH and Adam does too. He does it with humor and facts, many of them will surprise you and are all along the lines of what I try to tell you.

One of my favorites…

Anger. How much do you really know about it?


You can overcome your anger

Do you think anger is an emotion?

Anger may be a feeling but it is not really an emotion. It is a reaction or response to a stimuli and is typically brought on by an emotion. Those emotions are hurt and fear.

Now before you get angry….just think about it. Try to remember a recent situation where you felt angry. What was really going on? What were you feeling? I believe if you are truly honest with yourself you will find that you were either feeling hurt or some underlying fear.

It is truly important to get in touch with the personal scripts that play over and over in your subconscious. These scripts are typically provided by negative things that important people, like your caretakers, said to you as a child. In order to overcome your anger you have to (more…)

What we can (should) learn from dogs

Pay attention! You CAN learn from dogs.

Pay attention! You CAN learn something from dogs.

What I think we should learn from dogs…

We must always continue to grow and learn. We are never “done”. I have have always loved dogs but only recently have I truly come to understand them and honestly, there is so much we can learn from them.

Life’s a journey not a destination…

I study many things and one of them is dogs. I am fascinated with the way they live in this world.

I am convinced there are many lessons we can learn from dogs.

Here they are…

Be authentic

Strive to always be exactly what you are. Dogs have no trouble with this at all. They are what they are and you can take them or leave them. We, as humans are typically trying to mold some kind of opinion in others by creating a specific image (think about fake fingernails and hair transplants for just two more extreme examples). Plus (more…)

Topping off your gas tank and other time saving tactics (not really!)

pet peeves

Are you still topping off your tank?

Here are my pet peeves of the road

Topping off your gas tank

I was at the gas station the other day and what I saw shocked me. First I heard it…that familiar sound of someone squeezing the pump to get as much gas in their tank as possible. Who still does that? And actually I also witnessed this act the time before when I was getting gas. Not sure if it’s relative but both times it was a woman. This action can cost you money and while it may save you a few minutes of your time over a year, I have to ask, is it really worth it? Do you know that it can damage your car? Read more here.

The lessons I learned – 2015 in review

Lessons I learned in 2015

Lessons I learned in 2015

Wow, it’s been a super amazing year full of lessons.

Sometimes the lessons were quite difficult to swallow (or admit to). Sometimes they were downright joyous but all in all I accomplished a ton.

I do not like struggling. I don’t think anyone does!

I had struggled long enough so I made the decision to square up my desires for my life to my actions. It started
early in the year when I decided to really put myself out there.

Don’t stop before you have reached your goal

Since I wanted to be a successful blogger and life coach I did some research. I came up with a couple of tactics. One was to attend a school that pretty much guaranteed your success if you followed their guidelines. The second was to start contacting other people that were already successful in my chosen field. I applied for a scholarship to the school, but I didn’t get it. I told myself, “I surely couldn’t afford to pay for it myself as I was barely making ends meet”, so I abandoned the idea.

In the meantime I focused on my contact list. I chose several people to contact. Only one responded and it wasn’t what I had hoped for or asked for. I changed tactics. I know, I know, I should have continued to write to them but I didn’t.

How you can afford to eat healthy!

you can't afford not to eat healthy

Buy grass fed beef in bulk

Here are a few ways that I afford foods to improve my diet and health…

Its really not hard to afford to improve your diet as many people state, just follow some or all of these guidelines.

  1. First of all, I consume no packaged or processed foods, not even the “healthy” ones. I eat 70-80% vegetables, very little fruit and the rest pasture raised proteins like meat, eggs and assorted wild caught seafood. Only on rare occasions do I have “treats” like paleo cookies, fritterspudding and chocolate.
  2. No cable TV.I only pay for internet and bought a used ROKU player from Amazon along with an antennae to get local stations.
  3. I found the cheapest cell phone possible. It actually was through my local grocery store that has a “points for purchases program.” The points accumulate in my cell phone account and some months allow me totally free cell service. There are also services that provide cell phones to low income people. Just do a Google search for your area. My phone is not a name brand but it has and does everything that the others do.
  4. I did not shop except for absolutely necessary things. I only own a couple pairs of shoes and I am wearing clothes that are several years old. When I need something specific I first check thrift stores and charity stores like Goodwill and Salvation Army. I don’t usually find what I need but sometimes I do and the savings are tremendous.
  5. I keep minimum car insurance and make sure I drive very carefully and do not speed or rush lights.
  6. I live in an amazing apartment that just happens to be exceptionally cheap and I do without many amenities. I do not have a garage, dishwasher, microwave or extra room. My complex is quite safe and I feel very secure. I am not suggesting at all that you move to a depressed area where you or your belongings would be in jeopardy. You just have to look around and develop a feel for people. I have a wonderful landlord that is willing to maintain the apartments and the grounds.

    Pick up odd jobs to earn extra income

  7. Look for extra income. I have started cleaning apartments in between tenants for my current landlord. Just yesterday she asked me to be the onsite manager for a reduction in my rent. It is a win-win in my book and I am happy to do it.
  8. I shop several stores for my food. I get my meat when it is on sale at one store that is known for quality products. I only buy grass fed beef. I have been buying turkeys that were free roaming and not treated with any antibiotics (hormones are illegal in poultry so watch out for producers that state “no added hormones” as they are misleading you on purpose) at a discount. The birds were frozen after customers failed to pick up their orders. The meat manager just thaws them enough that he can cut them up for me and then he packages them in parts so that I can refreeze and use as I need it. I am getting a good deal and he is getting rid of stock that he cannot sell at original prices, again a win-win. We have a new store called Fresh Thyme that has great produce deals every week. I shop those deals.
  9. I buy my eggs at a local veterinarian’s office. They are farm eggs for $3 a dz. It is near my house and saves me gas by not having to run to the local farmer’s market several miles away, plus the eggs are a little cheaper. No need to buy organic eggs and pay a premium as what is really important is what the chickens eat.
    Use a Tower Garden to afford fresh veges

    Don’t have a yard? Use this Tower Garden instead.

    Most important is that they have access to their natural diet of forage and insects and if they are fed a supplemental diet that the grains are non-GMO, just ask the farmer.

  10. You can also buy in quantity, whether it is half a cow or stocking up when items are on sale. Of course you will probably need a chest freezer for this but if you check Craigslist, you may find a great deal on that as well.
  11. Growing your own vegetables, fruit etc is another excellent way to save money. If you don’t have yard space for a garden this growing tower is an excellent option.
