Relax and suck it up

One of my favorite things as a kid was using crazy straws. Remember those?

No matter what drink it was, stick a crazy straw in it and it instantly became fun.   Ah, life before the internet…

crazy straw

Are you still using one daily?  NO?  Maybe we should, they have so much to teach us.  Crazy straws want to remind us:

  1. BE AWARE -Don’t use yesterday’s straw!!    Don’t let yesterday’s straw ruin or taint today’s drink!  Yesterday’s (or last year’s) residue will only ruin a perfectly great, new daily flavor!   Don’t waste your time trying to clean it all out thinking about how it got gunked up –  just get a new one every morning when you wake up!   New day = New flavor
  2. Sometimes it’s going up, sometimes down, sometimes even sideways, and sometimes you can’t even see where or what direction it’s going, don’t sweat it. AND DON’T QUIT!  That’s life. It’s all in line with a bigger plan. It’ll arrive.
  3.  Decide what YOU want to drink before you settle on something that someone else just offers you.  Once you start drawing or sucking it, you’ll get it- but by then it’s too late to change flavors, to say “Woops, I didn’t really want that!”  What are you dunking your straw into today?
  4. Don’t compare your drink and how quickly you’re getting it, with anyone else!  Find your own speed that’s comfortable, you don’t want to pass out, or drink too quickly, you don’t want a Brain Freeze after all!

Keep your momentum going and you’ll get Whatever YOU DECIDE to drink.  First thing in the Morning, get yourself a NEW straw for your life, and stick it into something clean and nourishing like Universal Goodness, Love, Peace, Happy Thoughts and Knowing that whatever you draw in today, will be best for you.

My deepest wish for you my friend is that you enjoy your drinking of Life. Enjoy all the loops you’ll take.   KNOW that it’s All Good, even when you seem to be going up, down, sideways, or loopty loops.    No doubt, the upcoming year will provide all those choices.

Here’s a little secret for you– the drink never really ends anyway, so don’t worry about it.  ENJOY.


Juiced or not, it depends on your focus…


It’s 2:30am. I’m watching late night TV. Channel 157 is showing the incredible New law of attraction, fruit you attractImproved Power Pressing Ionic K48 Juicer. Its so flashy, and easy and efficient and gets you 95% of the nutrient without all that bulk.   She’s telling me, with her very healthy and bouncy figure, that it has been proven to reduce toxic pesticides residuals AND increase my absorbable organic nutritional values from the food. OMG!  But Wait- I ALSO get, not 2 or 6, but ALL 16 Free Attachments! No way, someone pinch me!  Take that juice anywhere, and so versatile. ….  WOW, I’ll save so much time, and improve my vitality and even my sex life!  Quick, where’s my charge card?   Only 3 short days till it gets here – the excitement was pulpable. Pardon me, palpable.

I flip the channels and there on channel 171 they were selling- oh you should have seen it!  It was the ZK840 Infra-Red LED Home Fruit  Rotational Dehyrdrater. OMG! With its brushed alloy Thermal Inducers and amazing, patented, SelfClenZing Surfaces, it was a masterpiece,  AND even designed for my ease in my very own kitchen, an equally bubbly blonde was telling me. Totally epic!    This would finally allow me to get rid of that drippy sticky juicy mess and be able to take all 15 mangoes to the  soccer game, or to work, in a single small bag.  I could now take the goodness of bananas into the movie theater without receiving all those strange glances!   How can I pass that up, my life will be so easy and clean.  Quick, where’s my wife’s charge card?

And then it hit me… what SHOULD I do with all my fruit? Am I supposed to juice them, or am I supposed to dehydrate them?    With total free will to choose, it dawned on me that I had just heard two great arguments – selling machines with totally opposite purposes!

They each sounded great. Each idea had solid logic behind them. They each had flash and sizzle.    Each of them had personal experience and  anecdotal, miraculous healings linked with them. So, now what?

Well, before I tell you – let me ask you- what do you do with your fruit?   It probably depends on the channel you were watching, or tuned in to most recently.

  • “I used to dehydrate, but now I juice. Someone told me it was better”- some of you may be saying.
  • Some of you may be saying “I bought a juicer and I used it for two weeks, but didn’t like having to do it daily, so now it collects dust on the counter next to my Dehydrator.”
  • Some of you may be saying…. “What’s fruit?”

Remember that what you DO, and what you HAVE in your life, depends upon the Channel, the Frequencies, that you give your focus and attention to.
