Growing up with the ‘waste not, want not’ ideology, and because we planted some this year, I wondered about the health benefits of radish as well as how radish leaves could be used. What I learned is nothing short of amazing. Besides, being used in salads, they can also be used in smoothees and they have a distinct flavor. I definitely like it more than spinach. 🙂
Please beware of the chemical ingredients in toothpaste. I was thinking of things kids are taught to do at an early age. Brushing their teeth was at the top of the list.

Life is about making a difference. It’s about the little things we do everyday, agree? It’s about growing, learning, sharing and teaching. You get to witness me growing … taking baby steps.

Looking at “America, tattered and torn” on a regular basis can have a major impact on focus and emotional health. Maybe that’s something you already figured out? I personally never had it hit me ‘front and center’ before.

You can’t give to others if you don’t have it. Benjamin Franklin saw the world as what he could give to it rather than what he could get from it – shared what became known as the Franklin Stove with society rather than patent. “What good can I do today?” and “What good have I done today?” were morning and evening questions Franklin asked himself.
If you’re still breathing and are of sound mind you have the potential of increasing your capacity. People use and cultivate only about 10% of their capacity. First, we must change our thinking and the way we do things. Here are a few steps to follow:

How can you improve if you have no one else to follow? Resources have little value unless you can pull from them the essentials that you need – notes, quotes and reflection. Putting things into practice as soon as possible after learning them helps you improve more rapidly. It does no good to learn something and not use it. If you travel a bit, make your vehicle your classroom and listen to tapes or CDs.
