“We live only to discover Beauty. All else is a form of waiting.”

“Discovering Beauty begins, within. It takes you on a ride that    never ends. The world around you seems so much more clear,  with love in your heart, Beauty is always near.” Barbara

Hello World! Welcome, This is my first EVER Bella Blog post, and I found it perfect to share a little prose I just now wrote . To start this ‘Bella Revolution’ in the right direction…. inside YOU! That’s the way, uh huh, uh huh, we like it, uh huh, uh huh. ;)

What’s with the “waiting” part in this Gibran quote I used for this Title ,anyway? You know what I’m talking about. Waiting for the perfect place to be, relationships, clothes  or some other outside source to hand over to you the  feeling or, power of your beauty, love and happiness. Or just plain waiting?

( I certainly do love those things I stated above… as my “add-on” ) Yet, allow me to share , natural beauty and love is not going to happen that way, and it will not last for very long. That kind of feeling is like a real good sugar high, it will surge you up with great amounts of energy and emotion for about oh, 20 minutes, and then… bam! down on the ground, whaaa?  Yeah, I said that. You are in charge of all of this, the rest is just the icing on top.

So, what are we waiting for? Let’s get this party started! Let’s find your rhythm , so you can dance with life to the beat of your own drum with some healthy, long lasting doses of love and that, oh so beautiful feeling, inside. We are going to start with 3 very easy tips and practices to do to get the momentum rolling right about, Now!

One: Whip out your water bottles!

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, get the water and drink you some, all day long. Add a wonderful color and flavor to the essence ( mine just happens to be lemon, for the sake of yellow, detoxification properties… and it’s really good! ) Trust me on this one, water makes up most of your body mass, to be specific, it keeps you going in the right direction, yet, so easy to overlook at times.

Two: Get “Planted”!

Eat your greens, life is not a box of chocolates all the time, it can be big bowl of  fresh greens. :) Try out a fresh, farmer’s market salad today, and fill your body with some love and fiber. For now, we are keeping it simple to approach.

Three: Shake your Body!

Dance and– Shake it like a Polaroid Picture! ( Love that song!)  Turn on the tunes and get your body shaking like there is nobody watching, except YOU, in the mirror! Yeah, dance in front of the mirror today, and don’t forget to SMILE. :)  Have some fun with yourself, and the rest of the world will enjoy you, too. It all starts with You.

With Love & doses of Bella,

Barbara
