You don’t have to be sick to get better.

Sage advice coming from my recent dude ranch, yes dude ranch, orientation. (Which, believe it or not, was an incredible experience. I want to plan a trip next summer with a bunch of families.  It would be SO SO much fun. I swear.) Allow yourself to be immersed in your environment and come away with better perspectives, drop a little excess baggage, renew your joie de vivre.  Trust me, a week in the Colorado mountains can do that.  I did ride a horse for the first time.  Never thought I would, but I loved it. They’ve called me to be the next Horse Whisperer.  I was that good. Ok, back to the story.

To have diamonds on your inside, it isn’t just about eating right. It is about balance in all aspects.

As I started thinking more about it, I realized there are so many things we can make better with the right frame of mind–it’s all how you frame it really. You have to consciously tell yourself to look for the positive.  Perhaps that sounds like one of those self-help books written by some over enthusiastic cheerleader that will show you how to walk over coals.   Nope.  Just me.  I had my head pulled from my lower half by an angry s.o.b. named kancer.  I no longer allow the toxic relationships and thoughts into my mind.  It’s the new JUST SAY NO campaign.

Transform it:

Attitude.  Tell yourself to be happy.  It helps.

Perspective.  Frame it differently. Seriously.

Health.  Change one thing a month to be and eat healthier. Wait til I write about meat glue.  Yikes!

Relationships.  Boundaries–use them.  Don’t allow the bad ones to suck you in!

Stay cool, my friends.
