Keep going

When the going gets tough all we can do is keep going

Aria-Bella Rises


Keep going. Keep wading through.

You’ve got this. Life can suck.

Life can be amazing. It is the feeling of both, that allows us to see the difference.

No matter what is going on for you in your world…. keep going.

You never know when you’ll get to the end of that dark tunnel, and emerge into the brilliance. You’ll never know what greatness you can achieve, if you stop wading.

That wading is building your resistance. That wading is strengthening you. That wading is building empathy in you. That wading is a beautiful thing.

It may not feel it now, but it is making you into the diamond you came here to be.

So keep going, even when you feel like stopping. Keep wading when the murk is trying to suck you under. You’ve got this. You were literally born for this.

“I HAVE got this. I know I…

Genius Ultra 12-5-18

I posted this video on my Facebook. I’ve been using the Arbonne Skin Care line since August. I love the product. It’s chemical free, gluten free, soy free, dairy free and vegan.

Recently I received the Genius Ultra. This little gem is amazing. Besides cancer and a number of other things, I have an autoimmune disease as well as Cowden Syndrome. I am very restricted not only with diet but products I use on my face.

This little gem works awesome. If you’re looking for an awesome gift this holiday season contact me and I’ll get you in touch with my daughter. She is a distributor for Arbonne. Of course if you know anyone who is an Arbonne distributor contact them. You won’t be disappointed.

Pollo Fritto Artistico



Tonight is the first night of Chanukkah. I am repeating a Florentine Chanukkah recipe that I published quite a while ago. Happy Chanukkah – enjoy!

I have a long-standing love affair with Florence, Italy. It is my second favorite city in the world, after Yerushalayim, or course, and on par with my native Odessa. Listen to its name – Firenze! – and imagine walking, breathing, eating and drinking art.  You are literally walking on art because the streets are paved with stone tablets on which apprentice sculptors practiced their technique. Stone worksheets – and rather than throwing them away, prudent florentines found an artistic solution. Florence, the cradle of Renaissance, where Jews were invited, welcomed, and protected as savvy financial partners by Cosimo de Medici, the famous merchant prince who managed the papal finances.


Since the 14th century, Jews in Florence linked their fortune to the House of Medici. When…

Catching Christmas: Audio Book Review — Jessy

OMG!!! I honestly don’t even know where to begin with this gem! I barely noticed my co-workers looking my way as I literally LOL. Two individuals actually tapped my shoulder with big smiles on their faces ‘What are you listening to?’ I was too jolly to be bothered by their interruption as I removed my buds […]

Health Comes From Peace 11-28-18

Health does not always come from medicine. Sometimes it comes from peace of mind, peace in the heart, peace in the soul. It comes from laughter and love.” – Author Unknown

I read this quote this morning while going through my emails. I don’t recall the exact email however what I do know is the quote caused me to ponder.

The past eight years, heck maybe ten, have affected not only my health but my well being too. I believe the chaos and the lack of peace in my life led me to cancer as well as all the other health issues I’ve experienced these past several years. As I look back, I recognize that worry, anxiety, depression, grief, trauma….the list goes on. These things have not only been the number one driver in the deterioration of my health and well being, they certainly have not been my best friends.

This quote says it all. I’ve prayed for so many things these past few years but as of late I find myself praying for peace, love, joy, and happiness filled with the laughter I was once known for because without these things all the medicine in the world will never heal me.

Like the quote, our well being doesn’t always come from meds. If we have peace and joy in our lives, the rest of things are just stumbling blocks along the way as we travel on this journey we call life.
