A Cheerful Heart 

They say a cheerful heart is good medicine. It brings joy and happiness to those it meets. A cheerful heart to a cheer-filled soul. Which hope turns into a more cheer-filled community.

You can tell when one carries a cheer-filled heart around inside its caged home. It beats with a fire for life and for truth. 

Like the song says…Set a fire down in my soul that I can’t contain… that I can’t control. So that those around me can see the flames that it carries. So that they see hope with each smile… with each once of laughter. Let it burn like wild fire so that those around me catch fire too. 

A cheerful heart carries joy to new plces this way. A cheerful heart makes those smile when they need it the most.

A cheerful heart lists off things it knows will make you smile…until it brings a tinch of joy. 

A cheerful heart exudes true authentic joy just by being. The realest way is to just be you. Bear the gifts of what makes you YOU.

A cheerful heart will dance silly in front of you until you can’t have any other reaction but laughter. 

A cheerful heart will walk into a stale room and paint it with colors.

A cheerful heart is one of life’s mightyest glues that holds us together when we are falling apart. 

Be the glue. Carry a cheerful heart. <3

Kiwis are so Underrated

Like for real? Do you ever hear anyone talking about kiwis? Almost never are your friends like omg I had to best kiwi for breakfast. Like OMG. 

But…..They should be. Kiwis are like the bomb of fruit. The fruit bomb of immunity boosting goodness!!!!

Not long ago I was looking into foods that boost the immune system because…mine sucks. I am pretty sure of it. Everytime the work place plague comes around. I catch it. 

Needless to say…Kiwis came up…over and over again. They took me by surprise. So I bought some and stuck them in my fridge.

….Tried them later that night. Cut one in half and ate it with a spoon. I was INSTA like omg…WHAT?! These taste like fricken candy from heaven itself????! 

So needless to say….They taste good but tell us more!!!

Okay Things about Kiwis that make them awesome 101: 

I think facts explain themselves…

1 little  Kiwifruit is 106%-275% (Numbers vary ask the fruit.) of your daily Vitamin C intake needs! Some say it even surpasses an orange in Vitamin C levels. One kiwi is all you need to booost it! Boost that Immunity! 

They are packed full of Vitamins and Minerals that are good for our overall Health and Well-Being.

The antioxidants in them have been studied closely by scientists who claim they protect the DNA within the nucleus from oxygen-causing damage. As in they protect our precious DNA baby! This was figured out by scientists while studying phytonutrients. I just read it okay? Lots of times.

If you eat some kiwis in the middle of your cough whalloping cold. It might decrease those unpleasant cold symptoms. Or it might not. Worth a try.

In the long run….with a kiwifruits’ high level of Vitamin C it can protect from heart related issues like heart attacks and strokes

They also have good amounts of Fiber, Vitamin K, Potassium, Manganese, and Folate. But hey!  I’m no scientist so look into them for yourself. 

Remember boosting your immune system also helps protect against asthma and allergies as well. I always forget this but…the stronger you make that immune system the higher your chance to lessen asthma and allergy related annoyances like inflamed sinuses and inflammation in general. This inclues inflammation like arthritis as well. 

More often than not the kiwi is praised most high for its HEART related health benefits. Daw I knew I loved them.

Peace and Love

Here’s to the People

Here is to the people that join us on this journey. Who walk across our paths and find us.

Here is to the people who light our way and guide us. 

They might stay for little. They might stay for a long…yet each one is a part of our story.

I am not speaking of family, friends,or loves. I am speaking about the people who cheer for us from the sidelines each and every day.

They come as Customers, Guests, Co-workers, Children, Employees, Peers, Students, Classmates, Teammates, the list goes on and on…The people who don’t come to stay but help shape who we ARE because simply they put up with us. 

They saw us at our best. They saw us at our worst. They saw us because they probably had to, but they where there. They where a constant.

They shared their support in forms of laughter and cheer. They shared advice. They shared their experiences. They shred themselves

Sharing ideas! Sharing inspiration and hope for the future and finding yourself lost in that. Because as a whole; all of them….all of these people helped you get to the you that you are now.

The doctors. The architects. The dreamers. The playful. The ones who heal with a license and the ones who heal because it’s in their soul. 

They remind you of what point you where at in your life when they came along. They remind you where you came from and what it took to get to here. The NOW.

They listened to your stories. They listened about the good times and the bad. They shared their piece of the puzzle before you moved on the next.

No…we where not always aware of these people while they are around. Maybe not as thankful as we could have been. When we look back the past we can still see them smiling and the thoughtfulness it took for them to be a part of it all. 

 They are unique. They are blessings in disguise. I have never been more thankful for all the ones who came across my path. I have had my fair share of classes, jobs, & teams. It brings me joy to see where these people are now. 

This goes out to them

So here is the people who didn’t have like us yet made a choice to lift us up. <3
