Today, a new edition of the African American women’s magazine, Heart & Soul was delivered to its one million subsrcibers. You may be wondering, why is this important to a Beverly Hills Jewish white girl?
Reference the article “Quiet Time” on page 12 (shown in picture). Notice anything?
Yes, it’s small. Yes, this is my first introduction to this publication. No, I have no idea where you can buy this magazine. And yes, I am celebrating!!
As an entrepreneur, I am learning the importance of celebrating the small, and even smaller successes. Appreciating the tiny things allows me to access a feeling of being in the flow of success and abundance. Why shouldn’t I celebrate an email inquiry from a stranger, a new record number of page views, or a brief but published article?
Regardless of whether you are established in your business, just starting out, retired, or work for someone else, celebration of the little things in life is essential to creating feelings of gratitude, happiness, and ultimately recognizing your wholeness, or the fact that you are exactly where you need to be exactly as you are.
How can you celebrate today? Give your significant other a hug for no reason (because you are celebrating this person in your life). Treat yourself to a bubble bath (because you are celebrating your contribution to the world today). Splurge on a hot pair of jeans (because you are celebrating your healthy body that has taken you this far).
How am I going to celebrate? Maybe a dance party. Or maybe just by sharing my excitement with you.

Remember the days when your latte options were whole milk, 2%, or non-fat? I barely know anyone who still eats cereal (no judgement), but you are not forgotten, and the following information applies to you, too.
Alternative milk options are as plentiful as surgical enhancements in Beverly Hills; endless and sometimes confusing. I mean, why do our grocery shelves need chocolate hemp milk? And how does one get get milk from the same plant that makes you crave episodes of Ren and Stimpy while consuming a McFlurry? Mind-boggeling.
Anyway, back to the topic at hand. What is the healthiest option for your daily latte? Almond milk, unsweetened almond milk, coconut milk, soy milk, hemp milk, rice milk, or the traditional stuff from cows?
The life coach answer: whatever tastes best to you. Listen to your body.
The nutritional answer: if you aren't lactose intolerant, milk. Unlike the other options, dairy milk provides you with calcium and protein. The fat content you chose should take into account the amount of fat in your overall diet. (Remember, a little fat in your diet is needed to be able to absorb nutrients and function properly.)
If you are lactose intolerant, choose the option with the least amount of sugar.
A couple hints: Coffee shops often use sweetened soy and almond milk so ask if they have either unsweetened. Almond Breeze Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk has only 30 calories a cup and you can always add a few drops of stevia to sweeten it if necessary. Hemp and rice milk are high in carbohydrates (not necessarily a bad choice, but just be aware of this fact).
And as always, everything is ok in moderation.
