“Invest” in 2023…Health and Wealth

What one word will inspire your 2023? I am choosing to focus on the word “invest” as my foundation and motivation to carry me throughout the year.  My goal is mainly for gaining intangible returns over all things that I value – whether its spiritually, emotionally, physically, or financially.  

I am beyond grateful and blessed for the opportunities that have presented themselves to me in the past few years.  I honor my higher self-conscious and awareness of God and the universe by investing in me and specifically in my health and wealth.

Health is Wealth

Age ain’t nothing but a number. I say 57 looks great on me…(01.03.23 Scottsdale, AZ)

I had a hysterectomy in late 2022 and I feel great, almost like a rebirth of my body. I was struggling with growing fibroids even in menopause and after fighting it for several years, decided that the procedure was the best choice for me. What I resisted, persisted and all the other dietary and organic things I tried, were not netting any results for me.  Well turns out that after my hysterectomy, my digestive system became calmer, my stomach began to reduce in size, and I didn’t feel pain or monthly discomfort anymore.  I felt more energized and calmer, too. This has been motivating to revisit my fitness goal made at 50 that eventually escaped me, but now at 57, I am recommitting myself. Especially as I am the older auntie now, my overall physical wellness (energy, strength, flexibility) and diet are utmost priorities. One of my goals toward investing in my physical wellness is the elimination of all processed sugar (which I believe contributed to the ongoing growth of the fibroids and increased my blood sugar).

Retirement and Wealth

Secondly, I am eight years shy of 65 – the retirement age.  Am I prepared? Of course not, but it IS very important for me to use those remaining working years to invest in my financial health by contributing more towards my 401k, and dabble more in the stock market (buying fractional shares make it very easy) or creating lasting experiences for myself that money just can’t buy.  While it may appear it’s late in the game for this financial strategy, I am aware that abundance and overflow has no timeframe or age limit.  The beauty of social media has shown so many legitimate techniques and tools that people have used to enrich themselves with basic skill sets and knowledge.  Wealth is all around us, we must know what we are looking for to tap into manifesting its value and power.

So how can you invest in yourself this year in a way that really matters in your life? Please feel free to share. In closing, I wish and bid myself and anyone I encounter well in 2023. May we prosper abundantly in all good things with a focus to take some time out to invest in ourselves and elevate our lives.

Goodbelly Challenge Update

goodbelly+Maintaining good health through diet and exercise should be at the top of daily the to-do list.  But sometimes, priorities get misplaced in life and the focus is lost on properly balancing the mental, physical and spiritual aspects of life. That’s part of my story.  Stress and poor diet contributed to a bad belly which caused me to have bad headaches, intense stomach pain, extreme stomach bloating and gas, and loud, embarrasing stomach noises.  I didn’t feel physically normal and knew that feeling was not normal.  Well, long story short, I began to focus on healing what I was convinced was living in my stomach, which turned out to be bad bacteria and yeast overgrowth.  The digestive tract is the heart of immune system, so if it’s not right, the result can be all types of physical ailments that we rush to the doctor to diagnose.  That’s where Goodbelly Probiotic Juice Drink comes in.  This juice contains live and active bacteria cultures that are good for you and helps to regulate the flora of the digestive system.  The drink comes in a variety of tasty flavors and is 100% vegan with no dairy or soy. I committed to the 12-Day Goodbelly Challenge and used the Goodbelly+ in Mango (packed with calcium and vitamins) and the Pomegranate Blackberry in the family quart size.  The drinks were quite tasty and refreshing.  It actually tasted like regular juice to me but I must say that my tummy began to feel a lot better and the bloating began to subside.  As a matter of fact, I did not have a headache the entire time I took the product.

I feel confident in my health again and plan to continue using the Goodbelly product on a daily basis. To also assist with my stomach health, I am also adding organic greek yogurt to my diet each morning, taking papaya enzymes after each meal, and excessively consuming water (with green tree water enhancement or a cap full of apple cider vinegar) or lemonade flavored coconut water, all which are supposed to be good for the digestive tract. I truly believe that I am on my way.

I hope this information is helpful to someone who may feel a little off in their stomach and tired of going to the doctor.  It’s more cost effective to take care of your health and spend a little more on good food and drink products rather than pay a $1000 doctor bill to the gastrointestinal specialist, which is what happened to me.

Best wishes for good health and a happy stomach.  If you want more information, check out this video on how Goodbelly improves digestive health. .
