Jusuru and I

Jusuru

Begin From Within | Beauty. Health. Empowerment.

I have been using BioCell Collagen since last August and Jusuru Life Blend since November (2013). After just three weeks with the Collagen, my husband was astounded at the changes in me. Simply astounded! And after 90 days with the Jusuru Life Blend? Well, let’s just say that he simply had to try it out for himself. Now he loves the way he looks and feels and all of the lines on his forehead are completely eradicated! My husband is 54 years old and gets asked everyday, “What is your secret?” Chuck is an iRep now too because, well, you just can’t keep something this good all to yourself!

As for me… I had a total hysterectomy six years ago. Because of the scope of the surgery, I was immediately slammed into surgical Menopause – and old age it would seem. My face started melting (i.e., sagging) and I developed cellulite for the first time in my life. Cellulite? Oh Myyy! And my once flat tummy? Poof! Gone! I didn’t even recognize myself in the mirror anymore. Without my body’s natural production of collagen (and other vital support elements), I aged 20 years in six months. Jusuru literally gave me back “Me.” Jusuru is my best friend.

Take the 90 Day Challenge and see for yourself!

I have no words today. Only feelings…

Clearly, this high school senior from Austin, Minnesota is not afraid.

LYRICS:

“Everything’s gonna be alright.”
She whispers to herself.
She was only 6 years old that night.
As she hid behind that shelf.
Cause daddy had a little too much to drink.
And mama didn’t want her to feel the pain she felt.
But she still felt the pain…

Well 10 years they came and went,
and dad was gone.
So she looked for love in other men.
And tried to act strong.
Broken hearts and Scars in only places she could see.
Cause she just wanted, she just wanted to feel something.

And as she sat there on that bed,
thinking bout what those girls said,
tears streamed down her eyes.
She cried…

“If there’s a God out there
Please hear my prayer.
I’m lost and I’m scared,
and I’ve got nowhere else to go.
I’ve come a long, long way.
But I’m not sure I can make it much farther…
So if you’re listening, could you give a helping hand.
To your daughter.”

Well her path started to change.
She reached out and grabbed God’s grace.
And finally, she saw a light.
Until that night…
Where she decided one drink was alright,
and one thing led to another.
Next thing you know, 9 months go by,
she’s a mother.

And as she laid there in that bed.
Stroking that small angel’s head.
Tears streamed down her eyes.
She cried…

“If there’s a God out there.
Please hear my prayer.
I’m lost and I’m scared,
and I’ve got nowhere else to run.
I’ve come a long, long way.
But I’m not sure I can be the best mother…
So if you’re listening, could you give a helping hand.
To your daughter.”

Well that baby grew into a boy.
Who became her pride and joy.
He loved her like no man could.
And her heart felt peace, cause she finally understood.
God’s love.

And as she laid there in that bed,
99 years old.
She grabbed her son’s hand and said.
“There’s something you must know…”

“There is a God up there.
Who heard my prayer.
I was lost and afraid.
And I had nowhere else to go.
I had no clue, what to do
And then He sent me you.”

So if you’re lost and afraid,
and you feel so alone,
don’t worry child,
cause there’s a Father who will love you as His own.
Just like he loved his daughter.
Like he loved His daughter.

Jump For Joy! – Photo by Eyoälha Baker http://www.jumpforjoyphotoproject.com

Every day beautiful photos such as this arrive in my inbox from JUMP FOR JOY!’s WordPress blog.  Each photo guaranteed to make me smile and change the course of my day. And I think that is her whole point… “I hope to contribute to the shift of our collective focus from the negative to the positive.” Eyoälha Baker “captures the beauty of the human spirit in mid-air through the simple act of taking photographs of people jumping for joy.”

I feel I have found a way to reach the true joy and child-like playfulness within people by having them jump for joy in front of the camera lens. This playful, child-like joy is why I’ve launched the project — Jump for Joy!

“Surrounding yourself with images that uplift your spirit is as important for your health as nutritious food.” – Deepak Chopra in Origin Magazine

Besides the joy of finding these photographs in my inbox every day, Eyoälha also has two major projects happening:

She is raising money via Kickstarter to cover costs of creating an epic public art mural with photos of 100+ people jumping for joy around Vancouver on a 9000 sq. ft. building wall in the Down Town east side. — Jump for Joy Photo Project + Murality Vancouver

And…

All pledges OVER the $5000 mark will go towards completing a book of 10000 people jumping for joy around the world!

“Create art, spread joy, feel good.” I LIKE her.
