Pay it Forward: A Heart Warming Story of Generosity and Kindness

It’s easy for people to become selfish and caught up in their lives, especially when times are hard.  We look out for ourselves, and our best interests, and at times we may find ourselves in a situation where our own needs, or the needs of our family may come first. On average, you’ll come in contact with hundreds of thousands of people in your life time.  Some are friends and family who will stay with us throughout out the years, and some may briefly pass though our lives called acquaintances.   The the others who we may not know well at all, we call  strangers. Strangers come from all walks of life, and are typically initially judged on appearance or behavior, without any real knowledge of who they are, where they come from or what they’re about.  You won’t even k...

Finding My Voice: By Janine Ripper

I’ve battled anxiety throughout the last 30 years. People have often interpreted my social anxiety as rudeness. As I struggled for words or ran for the toilets to get away from people I was in the grasp of a panic attack, wishing I could just bury myself in the ground. At my worst, I bordered on agoraphobia, struggling to drag myself out of the house to get a loaf of bread to feed myself. Not that that bothered me, as I hated myself so much, wavering from starving myself through to over exercising and binge drinking. I did not treat myself with any kindness. In 2010 I found myself lost and struggling to get through every day. I had left a job as an awarded project manager. I was burnt out and in the grips of depression, and had landed in new job where others and myself were subjected to wo...

Obsessed with Food – By Pam Yudko

  “You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.”― Maya Angelou Sometimes I get a glimpse of my life and am in AWE of whom I was and whom I’ve become.  How did I get to this space?  How did FOOD become a driving force in my life in a way that nourishes my mind, body and soul?  How is my past and present relationship with food a driving force in my company as I empower people to shift their beliefs around food as well? Food did not always play a positive role in my life.  I was always OBSESSED with food, but in a way that was detrimental to my health and well-being.  As a child it was way of exerting my power and a means to try an...
