It’s Day 2 of my 3 Day Quote Challenge!
I was nominated for this fantastic challenge by Anushka Hazra of Vogue & Vibes and I am happily participating!
Here is today’s quote:
There are so many naysayers in this world who often try to tell us what’s possible and what isn’t!
I know that in my own life, I have met so many people who were very quick to try to convince me that a path I have chosen in my life was wrong, or my ideas were not good enough. They basically said ‘you can’t do that’, ‘it will never work’, ‘not a good idea’. Even this blog of mine met with many negative comments. Yet, the naysayers always have a powerful effect on me – I take their negativity and I prove them wrong. ‘I’ll show you!” is my motto;)
Often, people who are not living to their own full potentional tend to be very closed-minded when it comes to other people’s success.
So, let’s go out there today knowing that anything is possible. ANYTHING. Don’t allow others to rule your ambitions and dreams!
I nominate Chris Lemos for the 3 Day Quote Challenge!
I was nominated for a very interesting challenge – a 3 Day Quote Challenge. You may or may not know, I LOVE quotes. So of course I am participating in this one!
I was nominated by the beautiful and talented Anushka Hazra of Vogue & Vibes.
Rules for this challenge are simple:
- Thank the person who nominated you
- Post a quote for 3 days and explain why it appeals to you
- Nominate bloggers each day!
Without further ado, here is my quote of the day.
I have this quote on a wall in my house and it honestly stops me in my tracks for a few seconds every time I look at it. Because really….isn’t it SO true?!
Life is so short, it really is…. and we sometimes forget to take in the most important moments. I am very guilty of that, even though I try my very best not to do it. I want to sometimes stop time so I can take in the little moments I have with my kids. I don’t want to be so busy with life that I miss out on just simply sitting on the floor with them, talking, building with blocks, snuggling, and enjoying their company.
So, yes, this quote is a reminder to enjoy life, to live fully, to love and be loved. It’s a reminder that there is a greater purpose to life than just living.
I nominate the Awakening Wildflower Blog for the 3 Quote Challenge!

I’ve talked about WHEATGRASS before and its truly GIANT nutritional value:
- Wheatgrass contains 70% chlorophyll – an important blood builder
- It is a powerhouse of antioxidants
- It contains iron, zinc, manganese, protein, electrolytes, amino acids, fibre, vitamins A, B6, C, K and E and selenium
I love juicing with BEETS too! They are a great source of:
- vitamin C
- vitamin B-complex
Finally, GINGER is a well-known antioxidant and anti-inflammatory filled with:
- vitamin C
- vitamin B6
A small glass of this juice is all you need to boost your immunity, improve your energy and digestion and overall – to feel great!
Cheers to YOUR health!
Are you nuts about NUTS? Chances are that unless you have a nut allergy, you already know that nuts are super good for you. With the wide variety of nuts available out there, there something for everyone! But – what’s all the hype about? Why are nuts SO good for you?
The Green Bar in Hamilton, Ontario has been on my list of local eateries to visit for quite a while now. They are a quick service cafe which prides itself at being vegan, wholesome and fresh. Fantastic!
Oh earrings! I cannot live without you!
You may laugh, but it’s true! I love them in all colours, shapes and sizes. In my opinion, earrings are one of those accessories you simply should not live without. I have even played with the idea of making earrings myself. But since my spare time is…., well, next to none….for now I need to stick with shopping therapy to provide me with those hoops, chandaliers, dangles, drops and all.
