Sometimes thoughts and feelings are strong and deep and they are hard to put into words. I will do my best.
Michigan State University–30 years ago, I taught aerobics classes to the undergraduates and to the MSU hockey team. It was a memorable time of my life because I was putting myself out there!
I was a graduate student at Michigan State University working toward my Masters Degree. I got paid to teach what I know and love–health and fitness. It was a win win.
When you stand in front of 40 to 60 College students, however, you’d better believe you will be judged. I figured it would be a good idea to NOT be ruled by their judgement of me so it was my practice to let them know.
Always on the first or second day of class I explained to them that I was going to have fun. I was going to be me and express my knowledge and my enthusiasm for being healthy.
I told them, “I don’t care what you think of me since I am the one living my life, not you!” Too many people allow others’ thoughts of them stop them in their personal pursuits.
Anyway, the thoughts sifted into my mind tonight as I was finishing my chores.
I realize, I have lost the strength of that quality.
I need to recommit and regain the ability to NOT CARE WHAT THE WORLD THINKS OF ME!
The world is far different now, we didn’t have the Internet back then. Now, there is a whole new game in town and it’s a worldwide game! Putting ourselves out there is a far greater stress.
I’m not sure why we think we have to look and be a certain way according to society’s standard. We are free and we get to BE. Regardless of what anybody thinks of you or me, we are the ones living our lives.
I am standing on the precipice of creating a few different online businesses and with that comes putting myself out there. We all need to reinforce ourselves with who we are. Be true to who you are. Do not let all the judgements, that are most definitely swirling around out there, stop you!
Did you know? Going barefoot on the Earth is one of the best drugs you can take! The Earth is like a battery that contains a subtle, electrical charge. The transfer of grounding electrons into your body will bring your body benefits that are hard to believe. Fortunately, there are studies that show these benefits and more.
Anxiety and depression decrease, inflammation is minimized, sleep is improved. There is improved circulation and a reduction in heart disease and blood pressure due to the benefit of thinning thick, viscous blood. Stress hormones go down, while beneficial endorphins go up!
Because most of us are wearing rubber soled shoes, we are blocking the electrical charge that is needed to bring the balance grounding gives us. If you can go barefoot on the grass, dirt, sand, anywhere out there for at least 30 minutes daily, you will reap some of these benefits!
If you are unable because of a cold Winter or a busy schedule, there are also indoor options you can invest in like floor or chair mats and bed pads. Look into it or get outside and start to feel vibrant!

There’s something about writing that clears things out for me. I can just express myself. Some people can express through singing, talking, dancing, or their own kind of artistry. Words and writing seems to be my artistry.
I’m writing this blog to take care of my own mental health and hopefully to affect someone else who needs to read what I write. We really all have similar blocks and becoming aware of them together will begin the healing. I just know it.
I have lived a lot of life so far and I hope I can help you to navigate the spots that seem rough and hard to get through. They say we teach what we most need to learn.
There will probably be lots about health since I’ve lived most of my life as a health professional in various ways. It will be a myriad of information. I need to get it out of me and if people read, watch, and embrace it then this is valuable.
There will be lots about mindset and finding ways to create and manifest what we are wanting. I’ve studied Sport Psychology and earned a Masters Degree. My real love is Psychoneuroimmunology but that wasn’t a program when I was wanting to learn it. Sport Psychology was the closest thing–using mental techniques to enhance performance. Mental techniques can enhance your entire life!
I have a ton of empathy and I have compassion for the soft spots where you’re coming from.
Instead of writing for myself and keeping it private, I’ll be sharing things that can be quite vulnerable for me. I’m hoping you’ll be able to relate to a thing or two.
All I know is I need to get back to writing regularly, it really is my therapy. Thank you for reading.
In a nutshell, life is all about AWARENESS. Once you become Aware, you’re on your way to healing.
