From the Editor In 2014, I was the most unhealthy I’d ever been. I was depressed, on a multitude of medications, and my health was deteriorating. I had to do something. My doctor’s advice was 30 minutes exercise a day and a healthy diet, but I knew it wasn’t that simple. Our bodies are a whole organism, and when one thing is out of whack, it can manifest itself in a plethora of places and ways - from pain or depression to skin issues, stomach problems, or other physical health manifestations. I was talking to myself in a way I’d never speak to anyone and had to force myself away from derogatory negative self-talk. I began taking mini breaks (meditating) to relax and think about the positive things in my life. I took my doctor’s advice. I minimized sugar and flour in my diet and cut out chemical-laden cleaners, soaps, and lotions. And I began running, a hobby I realized that I really enjoyed. It didn’t happen overnight, but I started to feel better. Within months, I was able to cut my medication in half. And within a year, I no longer needed it. Today, I struggle off and on with depression. And health issues pop up. But when they do, I first check myself, my thoughts, and my stressors. Am I doing what I enjoy? Am I taking time for myself? Am I eating properly? Am I exercising? This New Year, I wish you health and happiness. I hope you take the time to get to know yourself again and take care of yourself. You only have one life. Love yourself and treat yourself with patience, kindness, and care.

Become a VISION Queen in 2019

egardless what you choose as a catchy New Year’s mantra, if you want to achieve a goal of any kind, you need a compelling reason. Begin with a strong visual or feeling that stirs something inside of you. For instance, a friend watching television one evening saw beautiful scenes of Barcelona. Something stirred inside her, and she vowed she would one day be there in person, taking in the sights and sounds just like on television. Through her business, she had a chance to earn a trip to Barcelona. It was not easy. But she held that image of Barcelona in her mind. A year later, she was there. All because she had a vision and a compelling reason to work hard when the going got tough. What do you want in 2019?

“Find something that stirs your soul & hold on for dear life.”

An popped up recenlty that said, “Trouble finding plus-size clothing?” I had to laugh, as one of my goals is to get back on track with my healthy eating.

I have hired for businesses, individuals, and a nutritionist, and wellness coach in the past, and she publications such as “Guideposts changed my life. I know how to get back on track. I let Magazine,” “Mysterious Ways,” some family illness and stress, along with a few holiday “Angels on Earth,” and treats, get me off track. I remember how much fun it was “Woman’s World.” to shop for smaller sizes. It was a confidence builder for my Visit her website at other goals, too.

Remember to save yourself some fresh baguettes or rolls for sopping up all the goodness, and enjoy the rest of the bottle of wine as well. This soup only gets better when you save some for leftovers, too!

When the time is up, perform a quick pressure release and when you are able to remove the lid, change the setting to Saute while you make the rest of the soup. Add the broth and water to the onions and stir. Leave the lid off. Cook another 10-15 minutes on Saute to heat up the broth and thicken it up just a bit. Taste and adjust the salt/pepper to your tastes before serving. While the broth is heating up, prepare the toast and cheese.
