Squeeze As Much Joy Out of Life As You Can


OneofaKindshowEONegrete.jpgWell it’s been pretty cold and rainy in Chicago but I managed to get out and find some joy at the One of a Kind Show.  This show is spectacular as you find one of a kind designers and sculptors creating such beautiful pieces.  In addition, you have the entrepreneurs creating all their gourmet candies, sauces, chips, protein bars, etc.

Tasting the samples was the best and something I look forward to as they keep adding more healthy product lines each year.  I certainly managed to pass out enough business cards as I get a lot of vendors wanting me to promote their health products.

As you can see, I don’t let my chronic back pain stop me from staying fit and enjoying life to the fullest.

Count your blessings and remember you are so worth it!

The Mind and Spirit of a Champion

“Having pursued the goals, the dreams set before us and run the race with persistence and endurance, after giving it all. Then one day standing on the summit of life, breathing in the pure sweet oxygen of achievement, totally satisfied in running the greatest race, the race of life one that ANYONE can run and […]

None Of Us Can Save The World Alone, We Just Do Our Part

These past few days, I had read a couple posts and they all related to a child’s untimely death.  Both children died a horrific death, the girl from Thailand and the boy from Idaho.  Girl murdered by her father and boy from his stepfather.  My heart gets torn every time so I do my best to stay away from spotting these stories and even watching the news.  All I can do is pray and be the best person for myself, my family and anyone else who crosses my journey of life.

Which brings me to the point of loving yourself enough to be your best self.  There are so many people ashamed and worried about what someone else is going to say if they need some sort of treatment that they go on to live and make other people’s lives miserable.  At least the people that allow that type of negative energy in their lives.  However, children don’t have a say and imagine the toddlers.

So today I say to anyone struggling with mental issues or any type of pain, understand this:  it’s not going to go away on its own – you have to RISE ABOVE WHAT OTHERS THINK EVEN IF IT’S YOUR OWN FAMILY.  You are in a toxic state and you need to remove any other toxicity in your life in order to begin to help yourself.

You are not living nor spreading positivity to your loved ones nor anyone else for that matter.  Don’t you realize that you are much more than the negativity energy that has you in bondage?  If you have children and can’t care for them, take them to a police station so that they may have a chance at living the life God promised.

You know, it is said in scripture that God can take any negativity and turn it to a positive and I believe it.  But, I personally know it’s easier said than done.  I lost all my grandparents, parents, brothers, nephew and brother-in-law.  That’s just one of the major storms.  God has kept me alive through countless storms I can’t even keep track.  No, I’M NOT LOOKING FOR SYMPATHY, I’M HOPING THAT THESE WORDS TOUCH YOU IN SUCH A WAY THAT ALMIGHTY GOD INFUSES HIS POWER IN YOU TO GET THE HELP YOU NEED.  God allowed the boy’s death to serve for His Glory.  The boys organs were donated to children in need of transplants.  I can only imagine the majestic masterpieces that God will create with these organ recipients.  You know because even in death, there is always purpose.

Be Well and remember You are the only one to define YOUR Best Self.

Blessings, Emma

Put Yourself as High Priority on your To Do List

I might be 54 yrs yg. and a grandmother to 3 beautiful, smart and athletic girls along with chronic back pain but I still focus on my exercise.  Endorphins will get your mood leveled if you have anxiety or, frankly, any type of ailment.  The body was made to “MOVE”.  Jesus Christ walked from town to town.  It is said that folks back then were extremely fit.  What happened to the joy of moving our bodies?  Have we exchanged it for spending countless hours on meaningless social media chatter?

You have to know that if God hasn’t taken you home, there is purpose in your life.  It starts with you feeling good about you.  It starts with loving yourself.  In order to love yourself, you have to be willing to take the treatment you need for your ailments and get on with life.  Isn’t your life worth it?  John 10:10 says Jesus died so that we could live an abundant life in every area but we still have to take action.

Do what you have to do in order to get your life back.  Get that Mind, Body & Soul Balance for “YOU”.  Once you do, you can serve others as God(omnipotent positive energy) desires of you.

Let Go

It doesn’t matter who did what to you or what happened to you because in order to find joy you must put it in the past.  No one is saying it’s going to be easy.  However, if you carry that extra load from the past on top of your daily challenges; finding joy is going to be nearly impossible.  You just can’t live in the past and believe that you’re going to move forward.  The only time to revisit the past is simply to identify all your countless triumphs and to remember your resilience amidst the storms.”  ©Emma Ortega Negrete

Let’s get Cristian the last $800 that he needs for dental work!

First off, let me start by thanking Lisa and Frank for their donations. Now… Eight hundred. That’s the amount missing right now. This is how I look. I do not want to look like this. To say that I am self-conscious would be an understatement. To say that I look like a monster, over dramatizing. […]

Detoxify Your Life from Negativity


Your wealth is having a healthy Mind, Body and Spirit.  It’s not the size of your bank account, friends, beauty, name-brand handbags, followers, popularity and basically any material items.

It’s your decision to “invest” in detoxifying your life.  No one is going to do it for you.
