Strength is Not an Overnight Superpower

Sandra CampilloMotivation, Well BeingLeave a Comment

Strength is not something that we are born with, it’s something that we develop over time through hardships and life experience. It comes from falling time after time and getting back up stronger than the last. The past couple of months have been trying on my daughter and I. She claims I’m stronger than she is which in her eyes means there is nothing I can’t handle. Now let me back track a bit… I had my daughter at the … Read More

How to Break Through the Feeling of Being Stuck

Sandra CampilloWell BeingLeave a Comment

First, let me say that you are never stuck. If you are stuck, it is by choice. Sometimes it feels as if we don’t, but the fact is, we do. I know because I’ve been there. I’ve been where it feels like nothing ever changes and I was born to live of life of heartache, struggle, and bad luck. Often saying, “This is the story of my life.”, “It just wasn’t in the cards for me.” or “I’m just not … Read More

Plant Life vs. Animal Life

Sandra CampilloLifestyleLeave a Comment

The question that I have been hearing more of is, “Why eat plants and not animals – aren’t they both ‘living’?” It seems to me that the more people turn to veganism, those that aren’t,  are beginning to question plant life to justify their consumption of animals as being OK. THE TRUTH… It’s not OK.  Animals have feelings.  They feel pain.  Unlike plants, which don’t. Pain is a defense mechanism.  So, as humans, when we feel pain, we react.  Just … Read More

Ignorant Remarks People Make

Sandra CampilloWell Being2 Comments

Someone said to me the other day in a Facebook post that I am too skinny and need to gain weight.  It’s not the first time that has happened. Some people might take offense to that and let it simmer in their mind leading to negative self-conscious thoughts but for me, it doesn’t offend me in the least. For one, I know I am not skinny.  I consider myself healthy and fit; but it’s usually those who are overweight or … Read More

Finding Your Way…

Sandra CampilloLifestyle2 Comments

How many times have you been told or have thought to yourself that you need to “find your way?” To be honest, I was once that person who felt the same. I was so lost that I thought I had to find my way back to ME.  But at the same time, I had no idea who “ME” was; only what I had known to be in the past.  So, how was I to find my way if I had … Read More

A Raw & Alive Cereal Breakfast Bowl Recipe Plus Tips

Sandra CampilloNutrition, RecipeLeave a Comment

Between the commercials and the marketing hooks on the front of cereal boxes, cereals have come to appear healthier than they really are. These companies are smart and know what they’re doing and with more and more education coming to light about the foods we eat, the more these companies strategize to cover up what’s really in their junk products. They know that the consumer will fall for a product if it appears to be healthy in any way.  So, … Read More

Sandra CampilloLifestyleLeave a Comment

(Video at the end of this post) Cesar Chavez quotes…  “Only when we have become non-violent towards all life will we have learned to live well ourselves.” He’s right. We cannot expect to live a life filled with peace and love, if we are not filled with love or at peace ourselves.  It’s in loving and being non-violent toward all living beings, including ourselves, that we can create a life of peace, love, and overall well-being. Have you ever looked … Read More
