He had an event he was the featured speaker and I was allowed to set up and sell my jewelry and almost completely sold out. The rest is history. I have always been an artist; it was something that I was born with. I don’t ever remember a day where I was not drawing. With that being said becoming a jewelry designer was a natural segue for me. I see my designs as being artwork that people actually wear instead of hanging on their wall.

HOW TO OVERCOME THE LOST OF A LOVED ONE Losing someone you love or care deeply about is
very painful. You may experience all kinds of difficult emotions and it may feel like the pain and sadness your experiencing will never let up. These are normal reactions to a significant loss. But while there is no right or wrong way to grieve, there are healthy ways to cope with the pain that, in time, can renew you and permit you to move on:
In 1969, psychiatrist Elisabeth Kübler-Ross introduced what became known as the “five stages of grief.” The five stages of grief:
1. Denial: “This can’t be happening to me.” 2. Anger: “Why is this happening? Who is to blame?” 3. Bargaining: “Make this not happen, and in return I will ____.” 1. Take care of yourself, When you’re grieving, it’s more 4. Depression: “I’m too sad to do anything.” 5. Acceptance: “I’m at peace with what important than ever to take care of yourself. The stress of a major loss can deplete your energy and emotional happened.”
Coping with grief and loss tip:
reserves. Combat stress and fatigue by getting enough sleep, eating right, and exercise.
2. Don’t try to suppress your grief. In order to heal, you have to acknowledge the pain. Trying to avoid feelings of sadness and loss only prolongs the grieving process. Unresolved grief can also lead to complications such as depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and health problems.
3. Express your feelings in a tangible or
creative way. Write about your loss in a journal. If you’ve lost a loved one, write a letter saying the things you never got to say; make a scrapbook or photo album celebrating the person’s life; or get involved in a cause or organization that was important to him or her.
4.Your grief is your own, and no one else can tell you
when it’s time to “move on” or “get over it.” Let yourself feel whatever you feel without embarrassment or judgment. It’s okay to be angry, to yell at the heavens, to cry or not to cry. It’s also okay to laugh, to find moments of joy, and to let go when you’re ready.
5. Plan ahead for grief “triggers.” Anniversaries,
holidays, and milestones can reawaken memories and feelings. Be prepared for an emotional wallop, and know that it’s completely normal. If you’re sharing a holiday or lifecycle event with other relatives, talk to them ahead of time about their expectations and agree on strategies to honor the person you loved.
If you are experiencing any of these emotions following a loss, it may help to know that your reaction is natural and that you’ll heal in time. However, not everyone who is grieving goes through all of these stages – and that’s okay. You do not have to go through each stage in order to heal. In fact, some people resolve their grief without going through any of these stages. And if you do go through these stages of grief, you probably won’t experience them in a neat, sequential order, so don’t worry about what you “should” be feeling or which stage you’re supposed to be in.
Myths and Facts About Grief: MYTH: It’s important to be “be strong” in the face of loss. Fact: Feeling sad, frightened, or lonely is a normal reaction to loss. Crying doesn’t mean you are weak. You don’t need to “protect” your family or friends by putting on a brave front. Showing your true feelings can help them and you. MYTH: If you don’t cry, it means you aren’t sorry about the loss. Fact: Crying is a normal response to sadness, but it’s not the only one. Those who don’t cry may feel the pain just as deeply as others. They may simply have other ways of showing it. MYTH: Grief should last about a year. Fact: There is no right or wrong time frame for grieving. How long it takes can differ from person to person.

SEPTEMBER BREAST CANCER
Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM), also referred to in America as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM), is an annual international health campaign organized by major breast cancer charities every October to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure. The campaign also offers information and support to those affected by breast cancer. As well as providing a platform for breast cancer charities to raise awareness of their work and of the disease, BCAM is also a prime opportunity to remind women to be breast aware for earlier detection. Breast cancer is a type of cancer originating from breast tissue, most commonly from the inner lining of milk ducts or the lobules that supply the ducts with milk. Treatment may include surgery, drugs (hormonal therapy and chemotherapy), radiation and/or immunotherapy. Surgical removal of the tumor provides the single largest benefit, with surgery alone curing many cases. Some breast cancers are sensitive to hormones such as estrogen and/or progesterone, which makes it possible to treat them by blocking the effects of these hormones. Worldwide, breast cancer accounts for 22.9% of all cancers (excluding non-melanoma skin cancers) in women. In 2008, breast cancer caused 458,503 deaths worldwide. Breast cancer
is more than 100 times more common in women than in men, although men tend to have poorer outcomes due to delays in diagnosis. Prognosis and survival rates for breast cancer vary greatly depending on the cancer type, stage, treatment, and geographical location of the patient. In developing countries, survival rates are much poorer. The first noticeable symptom of breast cancer is typically a lump that feels different from the rest of the breast tissue, lumps can also be found in lymph nodes located in the armpits. The earliest breast cancers are detected by a mammogram. Other indications may include thickening different from the other breast tissue, one breast becoming larger or lower, a nipple changing position or shape or becoming inverted, skin puckering or dimpling, a rash on or around a nipple, discharge from nipples, constant pain in part of the breast or armpit, and swelling beneath the armpit or around the collarbone, breast Inflammation, itching, warmth and redness throughout the breast, as well as an orange-peel texture to the skin referred to as peau dâ€™orange; Occasionally, breast cancer presents as metastatic disease, and spread beyond the original organ. Metastatic breast cancer will cause symp-
toms that depend on the location of metastasis. Most symptoms of breast disorders, including most lumps, do not turn out to represent underlying breast cancer. Less than 20% of lumps for example are cancer and benign breast diseases such as mastitis and fibroadenoma of the breast are more common causes of breast disorder symptoms. Nevertheless, the appearance of a new symptom should be taken seriously by both patients and their doctors, because of the possibility of an underlying breast cancer at almost any age. Breast cancer culture, or pink ribbon culture, is the set of activities, attitudes, and values that surround and shape breast cancer in public. The dominant values are selflessness, cheerfulness, unity, and optimism. Appearing to have suffered bravely is the passport into the culture. The images presented in this article was presented by Delta Sigma Chi Sorority Inc, Alpha chapter members. And was inspired by the Lane Bryant bill board that embraces the everyday women with everyday curves. These members volunteered themselves to artistically bring awareness to this disease.

In this exercise, you build up strength in the lower back and upper legs while you remove tension from the lower and upper back, the hips and the hamstrings through both the twist and the stretching. The exercise is good for your sense of coordination and sense of balance.
