Natural Calm Supplement

This is one of my favorite supplements so far for managing anxiety and stress. I use the original flavor, which just tastes like a lemon tea, but will be trying the other flavors as soon as I need to replenish my supply. I use this whenever I feel that I'm having an "off" day, or just a little run down. I have also drank it in the middle of a panic attack and it is one of the few things that I have felt has made a noticeable difference. If you are looking for something to restore balance to your body and help you through your anxiety, of any level, then definitely give this a try.

The Notebook

"Faith is the bird that feels the light when the dawn is still dark."- Rabindranath Tagore

I saw this quote on a little teal notebook (my favorite color), when Tyler and I were in a small shop with my family in Manitou Springs, Colorado. My family had come for a visit that summer, from VA, and we were all spending a leisurely day together. Tyler had noticed me pick up the little notebook, due to my addiction to collecting quotes, and came over to read the quote with me. We talked for a moment about how perfect the quote was for me, because of how he always called me his "little birdie", and then I set it down as we all mingled around the store for a few more minutes. I had stepped outside to stand in the warm Colorado sunshine when Tyler came out of the store, with his usual big smile, and placed a little brown bag in my hand. As I opened it up and looked inside I saw that perfect little notebook, just waiting for me to write whimsical thoughts and ideas on it's pages. It was a simple gift, but it became so much more when it was given to me by the man who knew the true value of that quote that day. Tyler didn't just give me a thoughtful gift, he gave me a whole brown bag full of love and encouragement. Standing on the sidewalk that day he and I had no idea how much more that quote would mean to me down the road. Now when I see this little notebook on a difficult and dark day, I read the quote and I go back to that warm afternoon to gather all the love and sunshine I can from that moment together; and then I return to face my day... with faith.

Upon the Salty Waves

The sun rays tickle my skin as I feel the long awaited warmth trickle through my skin and into my heart. The storm and sea monsters have raged for so long that I have felt my heart being tossed upon the salty waves of my tears, as though it were driftwood from a long lost ship. I close my eyes and feel the warm wind dance around me and paint a smile on my face. The monsters of the sea will rage again, but in this moment I am the sun’s captivated audience. It’s beaming warmth is the very life and hope in my lungs, and I lose myself in the rhythm of the calmed sea. Though the monsters are looming in the sea beneath and there are storms yet ahead, they are not here in this moment. I will embrace this day as a gift from heaven and let these glorious rays dry my cheeks and the decks of my ship, for I will continue to sail my course and keep my eyes on the horizon…for I am destined for Zion. There is no raging storm or sea monster powerful enough to command this sea to swallow my heart’s ship.
