Today, VISIONARY has finally become available in paper format on Amazon!
I am a booklover, and I don't think I am exaggerating when I say that I have a mini-library in my home. I have books almost everywhere, on the kitchen table, the living room table, the bedside table, in the hallway (as decoration), and of course in the bookshelf in the living room.
Today I have ordered VISIONARY, and I must admit that I am very excited about receiving the book and hold it in my hands and clear space for it in the bookshelf. I wonder how it will feel. According to other authors it is a magical moment.

I believe we all have the power to transform lives by telling our personal stories. You don`t have to be extraordinary to influence people. In fact, we are all influencers. But I do believe you have to step into your power and lead by example. This can be a lonely process if no one else believes in you. One of the most important life lessons I have learned is to shift perspective and become my own biggest fan. What happens then, is that you don`t have the same need for external validation anymore. You know you are enough, and you will reach your goals more effortlessly.
Belief without talent can take you further than talent without belief, but when you have both you are unstoppable.
- Marisa Peer
My purpose is to convey, and I will continue to write and publish books. I love what I do, and I will continue to use my voice to inspire and transform lives.

Last night, I made myself a cup of tea and began reading some of the inspirational chapters of my latest multi-author book VISIONARY.
I was moved by the power of the stories. They speak directly to our hearts and make us understand our own life experiences in a broader context. They show us that we are never alone!
The universal themes in the individual stories are powerful. I felt my heart expand in compassion and huge admiration for our human experience. Our ability to move through the tough times and come out on the other side with such deep wisdom that can light the pathway for others.
VISIONARY – the future belongs to those who can see in the dark is a powerful testimony to global women who have emerged with matured compassion, love, vision, and freedom.
I was moved by what I read so far, and will continue to read throughout the weekend.

If you’re currently not eating a healthy diet, it can be difficult to start such a plan. However, healthy eating along with some exercise is very important for maintaining a good bodily function and goes a long way towards living a disease-free life. If you struggle with healthy eating, then you know that breaking unhealthy habits can be the most difficult part of the process. Therefore, if you truly want to live the best lifestyle possible, it is important to follow tips in order to start eating a more healthy diet.
A great first step when you want to start eating your way to a healthy lifestyle is to rid your home of all temptations that will distract you from following better eating habits. Ideally it would be a wise course to keep junk foods and beverages out of your house so as not be tempted to snack during the day. If you’re worried about getting hungry, keep healthy snacks like carrot sticks, yogurt, fresh fruit, or whole-wheat crackers on hand.

Another great step to healthy eating, when you’re first starting the process, is to take a few moments to learn what foods are the healthiest for you and how they work within the body. To start eating healthily we must begin by thinking healthily. Most people understand that fruits, vegetables, and low-fat meats are good for you, but few people understand why. The key is learning about nutrients. When you understand how specific nutrients work and why you need them, it becomes more reasonable for you to make healthier choices for your body. Knowledge is power!
Preparation is a major key in commencing a new healthy diet. You must take into consideration your schedule for meals. If you often eat in a rushed hurry at odd times of day, you are probably more inclined to grab a rushed meal which will probably do more harm than good. So plan ahead! Instead of grabbing a fast food lunch on the go, take a bagged lunch to work, complete with a healthy wrap and some fresh fruit and vegetables. Remember not to forget your evening meal, a simple plan to have a meal ready before you get home would be perfect, but in our fast paced lifestyle, sometimes this just can’t be done. One way to solve this problem is to plan out your evening meals for the week, on your days off. Perhaps just before you do your weekly shopping. But: when going to the shops, do not venture there hungry because if you're anything like me, one or two chocolate bars won’t hurt! That becomes the first break in your healthy eating.

Initially many will find it very difficult to make those necessary changes to healthier eating. Along with the difficulty of change, you may not feel well for a short period of time. Usually this is normal as your body is adjusting to your new and improved lifestyle and is cleansing itself from the unhealthy toxins built up from poor eating habits. However if this feeling continues or you are worried a visit to your doctor would be the correct thing to do.
Start with baby steps. Even if you only replace one soda a day with a glass of water you are really improving your calorie intake. If you eat fast food every day for lunch, try replacing that half of the time with better quality foods. When you start by taking small steps you aren’t cutting out all of the foods you love all at once.
By taking your time to learn about your eating habits and slowly replacing them with better meals, by taking the time to learn and understand why you should be making the necessary changes in an orderly fashion, you will feel much better about yourself both physically, mentally and emotionally. And thus you are well on the road to becoming as healthy as you can be.

During the last decades there has been a change towards mechanization and homogenization of farming, which uses pesticides, additives, herbicides, synthetic fertilizers and mass-production techniques. All this is clearly affecting mankind's health, and new diseases are spreading rapidly amongst humans and animals.
The World Health Organization produces reports to show how the use of chemicals and other products on food, coupled with the manufacturing processes involved, are actually a threat for our health.
If you have space for a few pots or even a small piece of land, it is a wise decision to grow your own organic vegetable garden. There are seven main reasons for doing this:
1. You will have no additives in your vegetables. Research by organic food associations has shown that additives in our food can cause heart diseases, osteoporosis, migraines, and hyperactivity.
2. There will be no pesticides or synthetic fertilizers used. These chemical products are applied to obtain crops all the time regardless of plagues or weather conditions, and affect the quality of the vegetables. Besides, pesticides are usually poisonous to humans.
3. Your vegetables will not be genetically modified (GM). Antibiotics, drugs, and hormones are used on vegetables to grow more and larger ones. One of the consequences of this practice are vegetables which look all the same and are usually tasteless. Besides, we end up consuming the hormones that have been used on the vegetables, with the potential risks for our health.
4. Eating your own organic vegetables will be much more healthy for you. They will not contain any of the products or chemicals named above, and they will be much more natural than any ones you would find at the supermarket. Your health will not be at risk because you will then know that nothing has been added to your vegetables.
5. Your own organic vegetables will be much more tasty. The use of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, hormones and antibiotics make vegetables grow unnaturally and take the taste away from them. With organic vegetables, your cooking will be enhanced as their flavour will show fully.
6. Organic farming is friendly to the environment. Because you won't use pesticides or other equally harming products on your vegetables, you will not damage the soil or the air with the chemical components.
7. When you grow your own organic vegetables you are contributing to your own self-sustainability and the sustainability of the planet. Small communities have been founded where members exchange products that they grow naturally, thus contributing to create a friendly and better place for us all.
In the end, eating organic products only means that we do not add anything else to them than they would naturally have. Additives, fertilizers, pesticides, or hormones are not components of naturally grown food. To better care for your health, you should grow your own organic vegetables. A few pots is all you need.
