photo_sleepWeeks ago, I auditioned for a potential show on the Cooking Channel. During the interview, they asked me if I could go back in time, what advice would I give the little girl KalaLea based on what I know now. I can’t remember how I responded but if given that opportunity again, I would tell my little self to drink loads of water, consume super amounts of fruits & veggies, and get tons of sleep.

If more people did those three things, I believe the world would be that much better. Good night!

    Yes, I agree! The world would be that much better, because people would feel that much better! I swear by tons of fruits, veggies, and water. As for getting more sleep – well I’m still working on that. I tend to keep vampire hours!

    HI Karen,

    Thanks for reading and writing ! I totally understanding, I try to stick to a curfew of midnight but as you can see from last night’s 2 AM post, I’m not always successful.

    :) hope you’re well and happy!
    Very much appreciate your support and warm vibes.

  • During my farm stay in Bahia, Brazil years ago, I read the 1977 book, How to Save Your Own Life by Erica Jong. The other day I came across the notes I copied from the book: 1) Renounce useless guilt 2) Don't make a cult of suffering 3) Live in the NOW (or at least the soon) 4) Always do the thing you fear the most; courage is an acquired taste like caviar 5) Trust ALL joy 6) If the evil eye fixes you in its gaze; look elsewhere 7) Get ready to be 87 years old. So splendid. Happy Free Friday!! #selflove #sunshine #books #1977 #ericajong #ridingthewave #onlyyoucansaveyourownlife
