I love food!  The taste, texture and feel of it in my stomach bring comfort to me. Even when I’m full I often continue to eat just because it tastes good.  That’s when I get in trouble.  I feel lethargic, gross and unmotivated with no energy.  But yet I repeat the cycle, only to ask myself later…, why did I do that?

I guess it is human to want more, even though sometime “more” isn’t good for you.  I’m reminded of this as I sit here wanting more.  Not more food but more money.  When I have excess money I’m still not satisfied.  I want more, to spend more.  When I spend excessively I don’t appreciate what I buy.  It’s another cycle!

I guess life is like a teeter-totter.  When you have excess you weigh down one side of the board.  As a kid on the playground I always remember trying to find someone my weight to balance the teeter-totter because it was always fun to dangle my feet suspended in air at the same time my partner was.    

TODAY I’M GRATEFUL FOR my house which gives me comfort.


QUOTE: Remember that the nicest thing you can do for yourself is to do something nice for someone else.  “If you were to go around asking people what would make them happier, you’d get answer like “a new car,” “a bigger house,” “a raise in pay,” or “winning the lottery.”  Probably not one in a hundred would say “a chance to help people,” and yet that is what brings about the most happiness of all.  George Burns

ARBONNE:  ARBONNE does not use animal or human byproducts!

*Rendering is a process that converts waste animal tissue into materials. Rendering can refer to any processing of animal byproducts into more useful materials, or more narrowly to the rendering of whole animal fatty tissue into purified fats like lard or tallow.

The majority of tissue processed comes from slaughterhouses but also includes restaurant grease and butcher shop trimmings, expired meat from grocery stores, the carcasses of euthanized and dead animals from animal shelters, zoos and veterinarians. This material can include the fatty tissue, bones, and offal, as well as entire carcasses of animals condemned at slaughterhouses, and those that have died on farms (deadstock), in transit, etc. The most common animal sources are beef, pork, sheep, and poultry.

The rendering process simultaneously dries the material and separates the fat from the bone and protein. A rendering process yields a fat commodity (yellow grease, choice white grease, bleachable fancy tallow, etc.) and a protein meal (meat & bone meal, poultry byproduct meal, etc.).  These are often used by the cosmetic industry in lipsticks, chap stick and make up powder. *(From Wikepedia)
