Examining yourself & seeing your own faults is never easy, if it was, the world would already be a much gentler place among us all. 

Time to Fulfill your highest potential!

I have been through a lot in lifetime, from childhood to now, I tend to let emotions, disappointments and the way I was treated rule the way I do things now. By reading the Power of Heart and opening myself up, I saw I  had flaws as well, although I never thought for a second I was flawless, admitting  to my flaws, and encouraging myself with the exercises in The Power of Heart has really made a difference. I can't say this will be something I can just read and forget, because it won't. It's a book I will keep coming back to as I discover who I am, and bring myself up out of the depression and heartache I have truly suffered this past year.

You may be asking, What is The Power of Heart?  It is a self help book, but it's like no other you will ever read. It is full of inspirations quotes from so many people, as well as grand exercises to help you discover yourself.


One of my favorite quotes to keep going back to and holding on to :

I don't think anything is more important than awakening  to what your life's purpose is : Oprah Winfrey


The Power of The Heart has so many contemplation exercises that you can do and with each one, you will start to see a big change in how you think as well as how you feel. 

My favorite was the Walking in Silence exercise. Do you have trouble letting your mind relax and your brain powering off all the stress ?  I know I do and when I saw this exercise, I know I had to do it because by far this is the hardest thing for me to do on a frequent basis.  How this works basically is that your brain will stop dwelling on worries and problems when your body is physically active.

I have found myself over and over writing down different quotes from The Power of The Heart as well as exercises page marked, insets highlighted and know where to come back too. You can truly find this book making a difference in your life , how you see yourself and how you feel about yourself as well.





The Power of The Heart is also a film which I cannot wait to see, I just know it is going to be as powerful as the book . You can find The Power  of the Heart on Twitter and Facebook.

Check out the official movie trailer below. ( From the looks of the trailer, it will be a movie well worth watching! I can imagine a great girls night out just watching this amazing show!

"From the director of ‘THE SECRET’ comes this unparalleled and life-changing film about the astonishing power and intelligence of your heart. Featuring some of the most inspiring and influential icons of our age including Paulo Coelho, Maya Angelou, Deepak Chopra, Isabel Allende, and Eckhart Tolle, ‘THE POWER OF THE HEART’ – which ties into a book of the same name – is an experience that will lead you to uncover... and rediscover... the treasure in your chest.

Spike ankylosaurus steam roller review

                                           





 I work in Education and  I am always looking for toys that will peak interest and keep the children's attention.  I  also looking for them to be fun, educational and long lasting.  I was given the opportunity to try out one of the new dinosaur construction toys by Educational Insights.  When I received the toy, I was excited to see how large it was.  It is a great size for the little preschool hands that  I work with everyday.  My daughter, 9, and my son, 12, both had fun playing with it as well. 
The dinosaur is geared towards 3 year old and up age group.  The dinosaur is kid powered and has many movable parts. It requires no batteries to power the large rollers.  The large rollers are perfect for playing in many different areas including sand tables and rice bins.  His head is large and moves side to side and his mouth opens and shuts.  It is perfect to play indoors or outdoors with him.
  Spike promotes creativeness, imagination,gross  and fine motor skills. He is wonderfully built  also strong and durable and  moves easily. 

He is very easy to use and fun to play with.  My favorite part is that it requires no batteries at all. I love kid powered toys especially in the classroom.  We will really enjoy smashing play dough and digging through rice with spike.

My pretend place review

                     

Who has kids that love to pretend and imagine. I know i do even with them a little older they love to use their imaginations and go beyond our world. I love seeing kids use their imagination instead of technology all the time. As i do in my job as well we tech them to pretend,and imagine,and imitate.
I was given the chance By My pretend place to try out one of their pretend play packages.   I received the pirate pretend play package.
It came in a nice box nicely packaged.


It came with a pirate book, treasure coins and bag, and the costume. It also came with a envelope with stickers and a handle so kids could decorate their boxes. My children said the box would be a great treasure box or even a carrier to take treasure to grandmas house.




 I had to agree with that logic. The costume its self is a Melissa and Doug pirate costume. It is very well made and came with the hat ,tunic and vest,eye patch (which is soft) and a foam sword.The costume fits 3-6 year olds.
 The book is wonderful to start off the pirate story telling . Very colorful and well written book. It really gets the imagination started well.  This pretend  play package was great . Really had everything you needed for a day of imagining yourself as a pirate.  The only thing you need now is snacks because of course after a day of play that's all you need.

Holmes whole house humidifier review

                                                         

                                                     


Winter is coming on fast,as it it gets colder my house gets dryer.  we have tried humidifiers before in every room. The house was still dry as we didn't have one big enough for the whole house. Holmes was very gracious to send me the whole house humidifier to test out and review.


When it came i was over whelmed with the size . I t was large and i was unsure where to put it until i took it out of the box. I t was large but not to big .  I took it out and it was ready to go minus water. There was little to put together. The double filters are already in and look pretty easy to replace when needed. 



 
I think it blends in with furniture well and does its job well.  Inside it has 2 filters and two water tanks. 
The openings for the filters are easy to open no tools needed.
The tanks are easy to remove and fill.  Once filled you  just plop them back in and you are good to go.  The tanks are 2 gallons each so you have a 4 gallon capacity.
The coolest thing about this is how you can manage it away from home. The humidifier is state of the art. It is wemo enabled. Wemo is a free smart app for your smart phone that you can download.You can control the humidifier from anywhere you have your phone.  You can set a timer for it to run. You can turn it off if  your away and get an alert that water is low or if you just want it off. You can turn it up ,down anything you need right from your phone anywhere you are.  I am in love with this technology as we travel and i can make sure its off when we wont be there, and turn it on on our way home. It is great technology for our ever so busy lives and my tech loving husband. I think if he could run everything from his phone he would be really happy.Not only can you run the humidifier from anywhere it has cool mist technology as well. It can run for up to 60 hours at a time as well on the 4 gallons of water. I really like this product and look forward to a very comfortable house all winter long.
