drshelution: I AM Statement

I know who I am, Do you know who you are?

The words are synonymous with God. You are who you say that you are. I encouraged my weight loss group to create their I am statement and repeat it every morning.  Words are so powerful, and so often we use negative words each day to describe ourself.  When the words are not spoken our thoughts become our enemy. 

Repeat after me. I am Great,  I am Valuable, I am Happy,  I am Amazing.  Sheila wrote a post last year “You are amazing”  check it out.

Watch this great video by the late Wayne Dyer:

I used a I am creator and made this I am statement several years back.  I keep it to remind myself who I am and where I was at that point in my life. 

I am Dedicated and Determined

I wonder about life mysteries

I hear the voice of your heart

I see answers to problems

 

I want life to matter

I see the world thru God’s eyes

I am your friend

 

I Pretend I am not afraid

I feel the weight of the world

I touch sensitive areas that need healing

I worry my words may be misunderstood

I cry when I am not heard

I am the voice of reason

 

I understand life is short

I say eat the meat and leave the bone

I dream of endless possibilities

If nothing changes, then nothing changes

 

I am who I am

Because of what I believe…

Embrace Change – Life Lesson 101

Life Lesson 101 is to live life “Intentional and Consistent”

As I embrace change I have decided to live life more intentional and consistent. I look at my life wheel and ask myself how do I bring balance to my life? Each day I do two things that will make an impact in moving the wheel in a positive way and bring more balance to  my life. Thanks to my Life Coach Traci Brooks I am held accountable for my actions.

3 Reasons to switch to a safety razor

3 Reasons to switch to a safety razor

Now that summer is quickly approaching it’s time to think about showing those legs again.  On my journey to eliminating plastic, a safety razor was top on my list.   I grew up using a safety razor, so I am familiar with them.   Here are 3 reason that makes a safety razor a viable option for me.

Safety Razor

  • Environmentally Safe
  • Saves Money
  • Eliminate Skin Irritation

Environmentally Safe

My primary reasons for switching to a safety razor is to eliminate plastic. Disposable razors may be convenient, but the plastic is bad for the environment.  A safety razor is stainless steel with a stainless steel blade. Environmentally, a safety razor is buy once and last a lifetime. The cost for a replacement blade is minimum, about 9 cents and they are also safe for the environment.

Saves Money

These days you can get disposable razors at the dollar store.  Cost may not be a factor unless you have a house full of women, which was me growing up with two sisters and my mom.

If you use a razor with a replacement blade, it can get expensive. Eliminating this cost is where you will see a real savings.  Depending on your usage, you can expect to save as much as $200 per year.

Like all products,  a safety razor price can range from $10 to $50.  I purchased Van Der Hagen Safety Razor .  Why wait order yours today.  Click the Safety Razor below and have it delivery to your home today.

A  safety razor  is great for sensitive skin.  Safety razors make cleaner cuts and are less likely to cause ingrown hair.  Shaving with a safety razor means only a single blade comes in contact with the skin, compared to 3 or 4 with a disposable.  A single blade decreases the chance of skin irritation.  

I have also found that hair removal creams can be the cause of skin irritation, which I also avoid using.  If it is strong enough to remove hair, can it really be healthy for your skin? Just saying!

Why the switch?

Switching to a safety razor is environmentally safe, saves money and helps eliminate skin irritation.   The safety razor is an inexpensive solution for a greener and healthier world for the next generation, so why not give it a try. Don’t forget to order your razor today.  Van Der Hagen Safety Razor
