Let’s cut into it! First off you
are not ain’t perfect as an individual human – being. In fact, you and I are far from perfect, but we do the best we can with what life gives us. The same goes for anyone.
Why do we perceive others as perfection? Why do we believe many people are without error? No one judges ourselves worse than ourselves do! We must reevaluate and think about what WE do not know about that individual. How far did they have to come in life to be who they are today? Why do we look up to this individual as an inspiration, and we perceive they have it together (perfection)?

What must we do in order to succeed? What are our goals for the future? How can we better our lives from the present time?
There’s a life better for us, but how do we begin?
Your assignment is to write out your goals in a journal or piece of paper. Give yourself a star sticker to remind yourself no one is perfect!
. . . even Einstein had flaws!
Concentrate on your environment and meditate upon your goals! Focus on yourself within the future, and psychologically travel away from the present. Don’t worry about all your flaws in the present! Only focus on your future! It’s that easy and painless.
You must seek a good relationship with yourself! Don’t be too hard on yourself or anyone else around you. Be a square! Your own safe place and strive for your OWN revolution in life!
You are your own powerful entity physically, mentally and spiritually!
Keep a journal, and remind yourself you are not perfect and neither is anyone else.
Star your journal with reminders.
When you make a mistake, simply laugh, remind yourself you’ll do better and go on. Find all the positive aspects of your life.
Redefine perfection! Calculate under the curve instead of above the curve, so to speak.
What can you do to become a unique individual? What is it others seek within yourself? Are you inspirational?

It’s so easy to get trapped within our own world and muddled thinking about everything that goes on around us in life. We always need to remind ourselves, that we need a breath of fresh air! If we don’t, there’s just too much stress that build up under the collar! Pains, aches, anxiety and worry on top of worry! We become our own burden!
We must sit in our safe corners and take deep breaths, focusing on whatever else us cope within life! A therapeutic dose of meditation and natural breathing help us tremendously. We must focus on the here and now; we simply cannot focus and ponder on the future while meditating! It is a must to clear the mind of life’s spider webs and pings!
One thing that’s very hard to go through us is grief! To experience grief doesn’t mean someone has to die, as we can grieve for ourselves and any loss within life. That loss may be a relationship that fell apart, or is falling apart. Maybe many transitions are taking place within your life, and the stress from them are a heavy weight. In any event, we simply must take a long and deep breather.
Find a place where you feel absolutely comfy and let your physiology, spirituality and psychological being consume you in euphoric flames, water, earth or wind. Let yourself go completely within the labyrinth and stillness of your own mind! Don’t think about anything, relax and don’t force breathing! Breath slowly, deep and let your lungs naturally do the work! Your brain knows what it’s doing! Do not fear anything, no matter the level of anxiety.
In short: we’re talking ALL natural here! Let life go! Let it all go, and just relax within the natural euphoria of whatever state.
Practice meditation and learning how to cope with life, anxiety and fear.

When it comes to skin, we must know that aging is natural and it’s going to happen. There are NO magical potions from Eden, that will reverse time. We must find what helps us best — and with that — something healthy for our skin. I have found three creams that help the most: Vit E, Vit A1 and Promedics.
First off, I have made my own mixture to form one cream, and I find it works amazingly (especially soon after you apply it).
Here goes, the recipe to my cream:
Vitamin A1 (Retinol)
Brazilian camu camu oil
Smells good, lush, works wonders and ingredients are easily obtained from Target, Beauty Supply Stores, Burlington, Macy’s or anywhere oils and creams are found locally.
You can use either a facial pad, sponge or facial cleanser (electronic) to apply the mixed creams. It’s very easily applied and dries pretty quickly! However, you may want to rub in the cream very well until comfortable with how it feels and looks.
I find the best time to apply it, is after showering or early in the morning. You could even apply it before going to bed, but your pillow may be a little greasy in the morning depending on how much you apply.
