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!

Living with Vorfreude … and skydiving!

We’re going skydiving tomorrow. Oh my! That sounded very nonchalant, now didn’t it?  Ho hum! Just another Saturday in the life of me. La-tee-DA! What shall we do? It is not, though, just another Saturday because on this particular Saturday we’re going skydiving. (“Skydive” aka “fly, Fly, FLY like a bird” if you’re inside my head … or if you’re 4 years old.)

I have wanted to skydive (::cough:: FLY) ever since I was about nine or ten years old. And we are going. Tomorrow. In the Morning. To skydive. Obviously I am beyond the moon excited about this little adventure and when I came across  the word “vorfreude” {FOR-froy-dah} earlier today, I thought…“Could there be any word more perfect than vorfreude to describe how I am feeling?”

VorfrudeI’m turning 50 years old soon. Oh no, I don’t mean “next week” kind of soon. I’m talking about the “soon enough” kind of soon. It is “soon enough” that I think about turning 50 every. single. damn. day.

But… here’s the thing. I figure that if I’m going to have this thought in my head all the time, well then, it’d better be a good one. So… I’m choosing to be happy about this upcoming birthday. (My daughter says I’m weird about this ‘happy’ thing but I don’t mind that she thinks that.) This birthday is a big milestone and it is NOT necessary to be sad about the occasion. I mean, come on?! We only get to turn 50 once in our lifetimes, right? Therefore, let’s have some fun!

I am “taking the road less traveled” (aka “You’re weird, Mom”) and I am celebrating my birthday every single month of the year 2014 because… one 50th birthday? Au contraire mon frère!

And beginning on January 1, I put action to words and started celebrating my 50th Birthday by choosing JUBILANT as my “One Word” for 2014. Words have always mattered very much to me. I am an empath, an introvert, and a voracious reader. Truly, you wouldn’t believe the vibrational impact words have on our psyche. So… three years ago I decided to stop making New Year’s Resolutions in favor of the “One Word” approach. One word that sums up who you want to be or how you want to live. One word that you can focus on every day, all year long. In years past, I’ve chosen KIND, GRATEFUL, and MINDFUL. They were wonderful choices and did indeed color my whole world for that year.

This year, the year 2014 and the year in which I will turn 50 (my jubilee year if you will), I chose JUBILANT and it has been extraordinary the impact this one little word has had on my mindset. I AM overjoyed, exultant, triumphant, joyful, rejoicing, exuberant, elated, thrilled, gleeful, euphoric, ecstatic, enraptured, in raptures, walking on air, in seventh heaven, and on cloud nine!

Tomorrow… I am skydiving for the very first time and I am jubilant! But I am also savoring the anticipation like a fine wine… or a good Kombucha. And to think that it is only May. What’s in store for the rest of the year? Oh my but there are so many wonderful things yet to come!

Here’s to moving forward in our journeys with much Vorfreude!

And skydiving! Is it Saturday yet?

Good Friday Sunrise!

20140418_065549

As is our wont, the Hubs and I took in this morning’s sunrise. What an absolutely glorious start to Good Friday!

It occurred to me this morning – and not for the first time – that I have seen more sunrises with this man than I have seen in my entire life. It truly makes my heart sing with love to be able to share these precious waking moments with my best friend.

Maybe it’s just this current stage of life I’m experiencing where 5 AM isn’t an unreasonable waking hour anymore. (Hello! 50th birthday in a mere 4 months!) Or perhaps it’s simply the nature our life together. I’m sure living at the beach has something to do with it, that’s for sure!

No matter what it is that’s wrought these circadian changes though, waking up early has simply become the most special part of my day and a truly wonderful addition to my life! Besides… I like knowing that the birds start their songs 5 minutes before first light.  I truly learned this recently. Isn’t that the coolest? Almost 50 and still learning.

Just in case we’re in the news later…

Just in case we're in the news later...

Allow me to introduce my DH, Chuck. Make no mistake about it… there *will* be consequences. My DH takes a perverse delight in startling me so this Huffington Post article/video provoked sheer terror in me and paroxysms of evil giggling in him. So just in case we’re in the news later… you know why.

Here’s the link to the aforementioned video: This Man Won’t Stop Scaring His Poor Girlfriend (NSFW VIDEO)
