Episode 83- Plan B looks good!
Episode 83- Plan B looks good!
Episode 83- Plan B looks good! Practicing Flexibility Good Morning!  Today's post is about flexibility. Many times we think we have everything all planned out and for the most part, they look good.   But there are times that just don't follow our plan... that's when we call on Plan B. Flexibility is an important trait as we build resiliency and can bounce back from just about anything.  But how does one become flexible? If you've listened to any of my podcasts, I love to play games, the game of Life that is and I really enjoy it.  What I'm saying is to become more flexible in what Life brings to you, You have to look at it like a game. I love to be a detailed planner.  I love to plan meetings, events, parties, vacations, field trips and such.  However, even with all of my planning, I have learned to be very flexible, because things happen and you have to be prepared... anytime.... all of the time.  This is where Plan B, C or D really come in handy. Talk about over planning right?  Having multiple plans as backup sounds like maybe a bit too much right?  Well in my book, I feel well prepared and that is not a bad thing.  Could this be control?  Trying to control my events and circumstances?  Maybe, but I'm not stuck with any of my plans... if one of them works, great! and if not, I move on. This is being flexible, this is playing the game, this is TRUST in the Universe that all good will come my way in all I do. As you know from my post the other day, I talked about my new chapter. An opportunity to open a restaurant and build my own chain.  As incredible as this sounds and long hours of hard work in the pre-planning stages, yesterday I was given a new idea of thought.  I though I had it all, the charts, the layouts, the details... only to be told by the Environmental Health Manager that maybe I should think about a new space, one that already has everything I need, rather than start from scratch.  He went on to give me leads of places as well.  I had not thought about this, I had been planning my current location and remodeling, rather transforming it into a new magical place. At first I was thrown off.  This was not my plan.  But I listened and listened some more.  You see He is the expert and knows these areas very well.  I'm just a new chess piece learning the game.  But I don't mind.  I listened to his views and also listened to my inner guidance.  What feels good is most certainly the pathway I am going to be taking.... I made a few calls and now I'm waiting.  Friends, I don't know where this is going, it's like being on a raft and I just veered off into a new direction, but I'm strapped in, I'm safe, and I'm enjoying the ride.... Today is a new day, filled with new ideas.  I love the discovery of the newness in my day, knowing it will align with my dreams, my plans and my life adventure. Flexibility is an important key to success!  One must be ready for any adventure.  So, Friends... do not be afraid of the wrench in the gears... it's an opportunity to meet a new mechanic that will help explain a new point of view.  One that may open new doors for you to explore, to ponder on... to discover a new side of you......and really, you'll never know what amazing adventure awaits you, if you don't practice Flexibility. It's been another amazing chat with you!  Wishing you a Fantabulous Day Friends!  See you tomorrow! Belynda Farias    TheGoodMorningLife.com

Episode 81 I’m Back! Let’s do this!
Episode 81 I’m Back! Let’s do this!
Episode 81 I’m Back! Let’s do this! It's day 81 of 2021... When did that happen? My last post was written on February 26.  What I thought would be a weekend off, due to my newest project, turned into 3 weeks of a break. You see I listen.... I listen to my inner Guru.  I listen to morning clues.  I listen to the opportunities around me and when the time is right... I take action! This is what I did!  A few weeks prior, I had felt a little bean "Sprout" within me.  I big question mark... A big "What if?"  With no effort, I was drawn to it, to research, to learn to explore, to discover new things about the new idea.  This is one of my favorite things to do... discover! I've been presented with the idea to expand my pottery studio and convert it into a cafe style restaurant.  How could I say no?  I didn't jump into in right away... I sat and listened some more.  I knew there was something very exciting about to happen.  I did more research, played with new recipes and then one day shared my idea with my husband.  To my surprise, he was also excited.  This seemed like the very idea we were waiting on. I made some phone calls and played with the idea some more until it grew enough to take priority.  That's when I took a break. After many weeks of planning, dreaming and researching, I am in the beginning stages of our next exciting chapter!  There is still  so much to do, but there is a plan leading the way and I wouldn't have known if I didn't "Listen". So Friends, what's the moral of this story?  To live in the present, savor every moment, and to "Listen" to the life clues that are presented each and every day.  When we are connected to ourselves and can appreciate all the good we are living and experiencing each day, we somehow get a "Pass" card to more insight that connects us to dreams we didn't know existed. Our future self is there in those ideas, helping us achieve all the dreams and goals we want to experience.  So take time each morning, listen, meditate a little, close your eyes and just "exist". Don't think about your day for a bit, and just enjoy your breathing rhythm, your heart beat, your body, mind and soul... and appreciate the beautiful life that flows through you.... Everything you want, everything you dream about, is there - just waiting for you to show up. For now, I'm ecstatic about my new chapter.  I will take you along the process and we'll discover together this new adventure that also brings us new things to ponder.... Wishing you a most fabulous day my friends!  See you tomorrow! Belynda Farias For more information, Go to www.TheGoodMorningLife.com

Ep13- Are you in Love?
Ep13- Are you in Love?    Welcome to The Good Morning Life! - A daily Blog and Micropodcast about Everyday living, Fresh Ideas and Delicious Recipes for a happy and healthy life! Listen in at www.anchor.fm/thegoodmorninglife        I’m your host Belynda Farias. Today is Saturday February 13, 2021. (day 44) Today is National Tortellini Day!  We're making Homemade Pasta Tomorrow is Valentine's Day.  Are you Ready? Are you in Love?  Tomorrow is Valentine's Day.  The big question is Are you in Love? Being in Love can mean many things, in Love with the day, in Love with your husband, in Love with your pet, in Love with your work... Today's topic helps us look at the many ways we can be in Love. SELF LOVE-    Perhaps the biggest form of love is Self Love.  As Lucille Ball quoted "“Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.”  She is absolutely right!  Feeling comfortable in your own skin, loving who you are with all of your imperfections is the purest form of known love.  When you love and accept everything about you, everything else you want in life starts to show up. LOVE  YOUR SPOUSE - Relationships take time to build.  When two people are in Love, it certainly is a wonderful place to be. As Humans, we feel complete when we are in a rich and loving relationship.  Love, respect, care, compassion, honesty are great ingredients for a happy and healthy relationship. LOVE YOUR CHILDREN - There is a special Love for our children, a love like no other. To give birth to a new life, to love and care for them as they learn their way through life is a special kind of love.  Though testing at times, the love we hold for our Children is one of kind. LOVE YOUR PETS -  It's no surprise how much unconditional Love our pets hold for us.  We learn so much from their love.  Their love brings us comfort, warmth, attention, and never ending Love. LOVE YOUR WORK - Some people find true pleasure in their work.  This is a Love that is satisfying and fulfilling.  If you are in Love with your work, you will create amazing things. Opportunities for yourself and for others due to your positive and happy vibe of Love. LOVE OF TRAVEL - This is a favorite of mine, I absolutely love to travel.  It is a sense of a new adventure, new experiences, and new memories that bring fulfillment and satisfaction to a happy heart. LOVE YOUR LIFE - This is the ultimate Happy place.  When you are in love with Life, it means all is well in your existence.  You love and appreciate everything unconditionally.  You are at peace and content with every aspect of life because you realize you are at the perfect place and time at every moment to receive the love that comes to you.  You expect Good and good love shows up... every time.  This is the place everyone want to be. Today is a good day to stop and take notice of all of the things you LOVE and stand in appreciation of How much LOVE is in your life.....

Ep12- What’s your Morning Inspiration? Welcome to The Good Morning Life! - A daily blog and micropodcast to brighten your morning with inspiration for a happy and healthy life!  Listen in at www.anchor.fm/thegoodmorninglife I’m your host Belynda Farias. Today is Friday February 12, 2021. (day 43) Today's Topic - What's your Morning Inspiration? Every morning we are inspired to wake up...Why? What is your morning inspiration? It can be as simple as greeting the morning sun, or a morning jog to awaken your beautiful body. It may be business goals or your Family... Today is a day to take focus on your morning inspiration and decide to keep or change your focus to something more..... Here's 3 reasons to be inspired to get up and start your day! The morning sunshine -    Everyday we are offered a new Sun, a new day to create whatever your heart desires.  The Sun brings energy, light, movement.  It's a silent language of inspiration to get up and get out to do something for you.  Even when things are not going as planned, the Sun is still there, cheering you on to new ideas, new thoughts and new beginnings. Personal goals-  We all set out to meet our personal goals.  The morning is the best time to get going on your goals.  What is your WHY to your goals?  To make a better living for yourself?  For your Family? For your Children?  Goals change with different situations, however this is a huge drive to Get up, Show up and Get moving towards the Dream, the Goal that inspires you to move mountains. Family-  For me it's my kids... it's LOVE and appreciation for my Kids, for my Family, for the life I have built......    Getting up early, helping them get ready for school,  prepare them breakfast, pack a lunch and being their voice of motivation and inspiration as they learn to create their own motivation.  Essentially you are a model , an example of their future selves, that's is a wonderful reason to get up in the morning. Whatever your reason, today is a great day to check in, to see if your current reason WHY still stands... or if it is time for change.  Sit in the new Morning and listen to it's quiet message of Love and Inspiration written just for you..... “Each morning we are born again. What we do today is what matters most.” – Buddha OATS & BERRIES YOGURT BOWL 1 c Honey Greek Yogurt 1/4 c Rolled Oats 1  Tsp Chia Seeds 2 Tbl Sliced Almonds Fresh Blueberries Fresh Raspberries Honey 1 bowl  To Make Scoop Honey Yogurt into bowl Spread the top of the Yogurt flat Add rolled oats to 1/2 of the top of the bowl Add Chia seeds in a line, next to the oats.

EP11 - Make a Friend
EP11 - Make a Friend
Welcome to The Good Morning Life! - A daily blog and micropodcast to brighten your morning with inspiration for a happy and healthy life!  Listen in at www.anchor.fm/thegoodmorninglife I’m your host Belynda Farias. Today is Thursday February 11, 2021. (day 42) Make a New Friend... Today is #NationalMakeaNewFriendDay. Even during the Pandemic, we can safely find new friends, through online groups, craft forums, zoom groups, networking groups. Friends are important. Be creative, venture out and try a new way to make friends. This article by Verywellmind.com states that while some folx may have always found it challenging to make friends, it might be even more difficult to make friends in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic as many are taking measures to protect themselves by staying home and limiting in-person social interaction. Additionally, as most folx are expected to adhere to social distancing measures, it can be difficult to get to know people when you're standing six feet apart. However, despite the unique and unprecedented nature of this global pandemic, it's still possible to engage with others and build friendships—it just may look a bit different than you're used to. COVID-19 has brought many unique challenges, which are bound to impact your life in a variety of ways, including how you navigate making friends.  Although it may feel like a lot more work to try to make friends during the pandemic, the benefits of feeling connected with others cannot be overstated, especially if you quarantined apart from loved ones.  When engaging in this process, it may help to consider the ways in which you have already been resilient through the course of the pandemic, as they may provide insights into how you can better navigate making friends remotely.  Even if you never quite got the hang of making friends, it is never too late to explore that, especially considering how friendship positively impacts your mental well-being.

Ep10- Open the Windows
Ep10- Open the Windows
Ep10- Open the Windows Today is a perfect day to Open the Windows... Why you ask?  Because there's no better time than the present. This topic has made me think of deeper meanings, in opening our own windows, or opening up the way we see things. Yes, I want to add that opening and cleaning our physical windows is also an important part of our healthy living.  Opening Windows allows fresh air to flow, keeping the Chi moving in a harmonious rhythm.  Healthy flow is crucial for a happy and healthy life, and we all want that right? In Cleaning the windows, we are creating a clear and organized space, allowing fresh light, clarity and creativity to come in.  When fresh natural light comes into our homes, we feel energized, refreshed and inspired.  Light is a natural motivator, that's why we're more productive in the mornings. Try my Natural Household Cleaner recipe, no harmful chemicals, natural ingredients and smells amazing! Ok, but coming back to Inner Windows... William Shakespeare once said our "Eyes are the windows to your soul" What do you think about that quote?  I believe the eyes have deep meaning, deep language and deep messages.  If the Eyes are the Windows, it's a good idea to take note as to what our Eyes may say. I appreciate this topic as it also reminds me of many ways to think of Windows., I first think of Creativity... (no surprise) as windows of opportunities are always available to us. In closing,  Opening Windows means exactly that.... opening opportunities within yourself for growth, for learning, for wisdom.  Everyday is a window, an opportunity to Be Kind, to live happy and healthy and to be the very best version of  YOU. "What the eyes see and the ears hear, the mind believes." - Harry Houdini Tasty Tropical Smoothie makes 1 smoothie You'll Need: 1 banana 1 c  Frozen Tropical Fruit Mix 2 Tbs Honey Greek Yogurt 1/4 c Almond Milk To Make: Mix all ingredients in a high speed blender until blended thoroughly.  Mix will be thick.  Scoop out smoothie into a glass.  Garnish with Fresh Fruit and Enjoy!

Ep 9- Soak up a little Sun Welcome to The Good Morning Life! - A daily blog and micropodcast to brighten your morning with inspiration for a happy and healthy life!  Listen in at www.anchor.fm/thegoodmorninglife I’m your host Belynda Farias. Today is Tuesday February 9, 2021. (day 40) Sunny days are coming...  Let's soak up a little Sun now! Why is it important to get a little sun? According to WebMD...Sunlight helps boost a chemical in your brain called serotonin, and that can give you more energy and help keep you calm, positive, and focused. Doctors sometimes treat seasonal affective disorder (SAD) and other types of depression linked to low levels of serotonin with natural or artificial light. Getting a little sun, has great benefits! For starters, it STRENGTHENS the IMMUNE SYSTEM. Vitamin D is crucial for a healthy body and A healthy immune system can help reduce the risk of illness, infections, some cancers. Getting out in the sun for at least 30 minutes somewhere between 8 a.m. and 12pm, has shown to be   linked to WEIGHT LOSS. Plus being outside motivates and inspires new movement, new energy, new beginnings. Getting some beautiful Sunshine regulates your circadian rhythm. It works by communicating with  your body as to when to increase and decrease your melatonin levels. So, the more sunlight exposure you get, you'll improve your levels of melatonin and this will IMPROVE  YOUR SLEEP. Bottom line, getting out in the Sun, helps keep our bodies HAPPY AND HEALTHY and everyone wants a piece of that cake! So, go take a walk, go feel the morning.  Get out and get your daily dose of vitamin D and know that you are doing WONDERFUL  THINGS  FOR  YOUR  BODY. "Keep your face to the sun and you will never see the shadows." - Helen Keller Breakfast Egg Chaffle makes 2 chaffles You'll Need: 1 egg 1/2 c shredded Mozzarella cheese 1 Tbs diced tomatoes 1 Tbs chopped spinach 1/8 tsp garlic Parmesan spice 1 tsp Almond flour 1 tsp softened cream cheese mini waffle maker To Make Plug in Mini Waffle Maker.

To Plate Place chaffles on plate, serve with sauce of choice.   OPTION:  Add additional poached egg on top for extra protein.   ENJOY! Get Ready-Tomorrow is ......National Umbrella Day!

When researchers compared results between participants in a resting state who used a mantra against those that didn’t, the ones utilizing the mantra reached a more advanced state of psychological calm."   (www.ThriveGlobal.com) Mantras help start your day and keep  focused on good energy.  It is loving words or a phrase that connects with you and helps energize or ease your day.  It may be encouraging words to inspire you to the next step.  Mantras are simply wonderful!  and starting a morning mantra may be exactly what you need to help your morning!

Ep3 - Make your Bed - Success starts here!
Welcome to The Good Morning Life! - A podcast to brighten your morning and awaken today’s possibilities with inspiration and motivation for a happy and healthy life! I’m your host Belynda Farias. Today is Wednesday February 3, 2021. (day 34) A Little  INSPIRATION - IT’S TIME!-  to Make your Bed! Why making your bed can change your life! Making your bed fresh in the morning, creates a positive, organized routine that sets the pace to a successful day.  Seeing the bed made creates a small accomplishment to celebrate so early in the morning.... it simply feels good, and you know we're all about feeling good here.  Focus on making your bed to what feels right for you... with 10 pillows or two... the key is to create a comfortable, cozy and very inviting bed where you feel proud and accomplished... and ready to greet you after a long day... We always talk about Focus and when you focus on making your bed, you are giving good clean energy to a special place for you.  Daydream on what your ideal bed looks like... feels like, even smells like... You are creating positive thoughts about a beautiful space that delights you... if you keep daydreaming, eventually those thoughts about your bed, become real and you'll be laying on your dream bed before you know it. I recently started using natural linen sprays on my bed and I absolutely love it!  Here's my DIY recipes for a wonderful scented  linen spray that not only makes your bed smell amazing, but it helps set the mood for a calm, relaxed and restful night.  I use Lavender and Peppermint essential oils to make this as they are a natural alternative to sleep aids.   Lavender linen spray and a cup of vanilla chai tea... boy, "Is it bedtime yet" What’s on the menu? Ginger Carrot Juice Shot This magic morning juice shot pack tons of benefits; such as improved eye & skin health, boost immunity, and can protect your heart and liver, plus ginger contains gingerol, which has powerful medicinal properties.  For this delicious juice shot... YOU'LL NEED: 1" Ginger raw 1 Carrot 1/4 c  water NEXT: Add clean ginger and carrot roughly chopped into a high speed blender ( I use the Ninja blender), then pour into a cup with cheesecloth to strain the pulp.  Twist the cheesecloth tightly to press out the pure juice.  Continue to press and squeeze until there is no more juice coming from the pulp. This yields 3 servings.  I like to serve them in 2oz. plastic containers with a lid and store in the fridge for the next mornings juice shot. Read today's full blog at www.TheGoodMorningLife.com

The Good Morning Life Launch - What is the Good Morning Life?
Welcome to The Good Morning Life! - A daily micro podcast to brighten your morning and sweeten your day.... Awaken today’s possibilities with inspiration, motivation, delicious recipes, good reads and wholesome goodness for a happy and healthy life!  Visit our website for more information at www.TheGoodMorningLife.com What is The Good Morning Life? It's what I call my happy living.  I came up with the concept as I thought about all the things that I love about waking up and stepping into my morning... The Good Morning life is waking up and starting a new day.  It's the break of dawn- spreading light and awakening a world of possibilities.  It's a clean slate, a new beginning, a breath of fresh air.  It's looking at what the new day will bring and letting go of things that didn't work out the day before.... The Good Morning life is morning meditation in a quiet space appreciating the stillness of the morning and stretching, lengthening my limbs and feeling my muscles waking up, feeling love and gratitude for my body, mind and soul.  The Good Morning Life is getting up and opening my curtains and looking out into the beautiful sky and feeling the sun say Hello.  It's making my bed and fluffing the pillows and feeling satisfied as I slowly put things in order.  It's washing my face, brushing my hair and brushing my teeth and feeling my cells vibrate as they wake up to another good day. It's the smell of fresh coffee or Vanilla Chai Tea ready to greet me, and a lemon ginger shot, ready to pack a punch of natural goodness. The Good Morning Life is preparing a delicious Mixed berry smoothie or Avocado Toast Breakfast to satisfy my hunger.  It's reading a few pages of a good book and feeding my mind then writing about my hopes, goals and dreams.  It's taking a walk in the beautiful sunlit pathways at my local park and breathing in the natural existence of beauty... The Good morning life is Being Kind to yourself and to others, inspiring kindness and goodness in the world.  It's exploring and discovering new talents and skills and the excitement of becoming more today than yesterday.  It's opening to new friends, new light, new sight of creating new ideas and dreams you never imagined.  It's a constant whimsical feeling of good, of living in the right place at the right time.  It's being at peace with today, with oneself, with life.... Really, the Good Morning Life, is the overwhelming love I feel for this new day, for today, for this moment, for Me, my body and my life. It's a solid knowing that I control my experience today, based on my positive thoughts, actions and intentions.  And finally it's the awareness that I can inspire others to live a Delicious, fulfilling and happy life created by The Good Morning mindset.  If you ask me, It's the only perfect place to be... Won't you join us?  I'm building a community of Good Morning Lifers, who want to open their world, let go of what didn't work in the past and create new change and opportunities to life a happier more fulfilling life. -See you inside, Belynda Farias
