News To Amuse

Hello, Happy Friday! I don't know if it's just me, or maybe my sense of humor is in full time mode being stuck in this house so much, (a good coping skill I think), but lately some of the stories on the news have been amusing to me. One thing I know for sure, is laughing always puts me back in a good mood. Which I need more often these days, as you can tell from my last post. Unemployed and underemployed, needing help from the government, is just not where I thought we would be at this point in our lives. I know we are not alone in this either, so many people are struggling out there, but that's another post for another day, well maybe. I hope you are amused too from these stories and videos with Lewis Black. Speaking of a sense of humor, I love his!

Super Foods to Boost Your Libido

Hello, I hope you are having a great weekend. I have always known that keeping the flame going in a relationship is important to keeping the relationship "healthy". Then today I learned that is true in more ways than one. I was pleasantly surprised to read that this activity helps with our youth, especially now that I'm getting closer to 50 yrs of age, I consider that a bonus! Below is the new information I came across,(at least new to me). Hmmm, all natural ways to help us have fun and help us with our youth, all in all a good thing, don't you think? Ya I'm sure you do LOL!
Thanks for visiting,

Sexual activity is nature's secret fountain of youth! Sex raises the level of life-extending substances - such as endorphins, DHEA, and growth hormone - while lowering the stress hormones that shorten your life span.

Enjoying an active sex life is essential to our well being, and the foods we eat play a large role in ensuring we feel in the mood. Some of the foods that help turn us on include:

Pumpkin Seeds
Pumpkin seeds are one of the few foods that contain zinc, which is vital for testosterone production in men. A deficiency can make a woman completely lose her sex drive. These yummy seeds are also a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are vital to overall sexual wellbeing.

Goji Berries
In Asia, goji berries are known as a strong sexual tonic. They increase testosterone levels, which stimulates libido in both men and women. Furthermore, they improve overall stamina, mood and wellbeing, all of which are vital for an optimum sex life.

This is one of the new superfoods out that can improve performance and alleviate impotency. It increases sperm count and testosterone levels in men. It makes people desire sex more frequently, especially women.

Give a boost to male libido. They contain an enzyme called Bromelain which is important for sexual health. They are also a good source of B vitamins which increase the body's energy levels and the sex hormones.

This sexual stimulator boosts a powerful substance known as androsterone, which is an odorless aphrodisiac in male perspiration.

Avocados help to increase both male and female libido. They contain very high levels of folic acid, and give the body sexual energy. Avocado is also high in vitamin B6, which is a potent hormone regulator.

Asparagus is very high in vitamin E, which is a vital nutrient for good sex.

Capsaicin, which is the substance that gives chillies their heat, releases endorphins and other "feel good" hormones necessary for a spicy sex life.

Basil increases circulation, stimulates the sex drive and boosts fertility. This tasty herb cultivates a sense of wellbeing, which allows one to experience sexual bliss.

Figs are very high in amino acids, which are critical to increasing libido and boosting sexual stamina.

Garlic contains high levels of allicin, which can improve blood flow to the sexual organs.

Remembering Humanity

Hello, As I remember the events of this day and all who were lost, what I chose to remember the most was the outpouring of humanity. We would truly serve the memory of all those lost well if we continued to give that humanity to everyone, each and every day and not just in the moments of a world crisis.

Jewel - by Warner-Music

If I could tell the world just one thing
It would be that we're all OK
And not to worry 'cause worry is wasteful
And useless in times like these
I won't be made useless
I won't be idle with despair
I will gather myself around my faith
For light does the darkness most fear
My hands are small, I know
But they're not yours, they are my own
And I am never broken
Poverty stole your golden shoes
It didn't steal your laughter
And heartache came to visit me
But I knew it wasn't ever after
We'll fight, not out of spite
For someone must stand up for what's right
'Cause where there's a man who has no voice
There ours shall go singing
My hands are small I know
But they're not yours, they are my own
I am never broken
In the end only kindness matters
I will get down on my knees, and I will pray
My hands are small I know
But they're not yours, they are my own
And I am never broken
My hands are small I know
But they're not yours, they are my own
And I am never broken
We are never broken
We are God's eyes
God's hands
God's mind

Release And Trust

Hello, In life, we have the power to release the past and trust in the future. Acknowledging the power is where it all begins.
Thanks for visiting,
Janet :)


I am willing to release my fears
I live and move in a safe and secure world
I free myself from all destructive fears and doubts
I accept myself and create peace in my mind and heart
I rise above thoughts that attempt to make me angry or afraid
I release the past with ease and trust the process of life
I am willing to release the need for this protection
I am now willing to see only my magnificence
I have the power to make changes
I am always divinely protected...

Get Your S.O.A. On!

Hi Everyone, Happy Friday! Sex Appeal, Action and Hits, just three reason why My Harley riding hubby and I are lovin this series Sons of Anarchy! We have started watching the first three seasons on instant download with our Netflix subscription. By the end of this Labor Day weekend we should be all caught up and ready for season 4 to begin on Tuesday!! This past week has been pretty funny, all of a sudden I noticed for the first time in a long time, as we sit and watch, we barley speak a word to each other, I'm like hello, you over there at the other end of the couch, remember me? That doesn't happen often, so ya it's that good. You need some of this in your life (vicariously of course!) to help escape the doldrums of daily life, trust me, you do LOL! I highly recommend you go out and rent the DVD's or get Netflix and catch up! It will be so worth your time and money!!
Enjoy the clips,
Janet :)

Sons of Anarchy is an adrenalized drama with darkly comedic undertones about a notorious outlaw motorcycle club intent on protecting their sheltered small town against encroaching drug dealers, corporate developers and overzealous law officers. The club is equally determined to protect their ruthless and illegally thriving arms business. Charlie Hunnam stars as Jackson 'Jax' Teller, a man whose love for the brotherhood is tested by his growing apprehension for its lawlessness. Katey Sagal stars as Gemma Teller Morrow, Jax's force-of-nature mother, who along with Ron Perlman as Clarance 'Clay' Morrow, Jax's stepfather and MC president, have their own darker vision for the club

Self Compassion Trumps Self Esteem

Hello, I came across this book by Kristin Neff on Self Compassion that I plan on buying. It is one area in my life that I need to constantly work at. I'm sure there are a few of you out there too, who know exactly what I'm talking about! It is so easy for most of us to our own worst judge. Yet, if it was a friend who did what we are beating ourselves up for, we would usually be the first to say, don't worry about it, let it go, just learn from it and forgive yourself! We have never been "conditioned" to do that for ourselves. Learning to practice self compassion, I believe now more than ever, is key to a healthier state of being.
Thanks for visiting,
Janet :)


So what is self-compassion? What does it mean exactly?

As I’ve defined it, self-compassion entails three core components. First, it requires self-kindness, that we be gentle and understanding with ourselves rather than harshly critical and judgmental. Second, it requires recognition of our common humanity, feeling connected with others in the experience of life rather than feeling isolated and alienated by our suffering. Third, it requires mindfulness—that we hold our experience in balanced awareness, rather than ignoring our pain or exaggerating it. We must achieve and combine these three essential elements in order to be truly self-compassionate. This means that unlike self-esteem, the good feelings of self-compassion do not depend on being special and above average, or on meeting ideal goals. Instead, they come from caring about ourselves—fragile and imperfect yet magnificent as we are. Rather than pitting ourselves against other people in an endless comparison game, we embrace what we share with others and feel more connected and whole in the process. And the good feelings of self-compassion don’t go away when we mess up or things go wrong. In fact, self-compassion steps in precisely where self-esteem lets us down—whenever we fail or feel inadequate. Research suggests that self-compassion provides an island of calm, a refuge from the stormy seas of endless positive and negative self-judgment, so that we can finally stop asking, “Am I as good as they are? Am I good enough?” By tapping into our inner wellsprings of kindness, acknowledging the shared nature of our imperfect human condition, we can start to feel more secure, accepted, and alive. It does take work to break the self-criticizing habits of a lifetime, but at the end of the day, you are only being asked to relax, allow life to be as it is, and open your heart to yourself. It’s easier than you might think, and it could change your life.
