Take Back Your Life!

Get out and walk!

May 31, 2009 by Giulietta Nardone

Hello …

As soon as it’s warm enough, I try to walk to my local destinations. Although it saves on gas, that’s not the real reason I do it. I do it to celebrate my ability to walk. There is a tendency for humans to take things for granted until they lose them. So many humans even do it with their lives, “when I retire I’ll …”

Do whatever you want to do now while you know you can. If you only lived for 24 hours, would you sit around and watch reality shows or sports? I’d rather participate in the reality show of my own life. How about you? What have you been putting off for “retirement?”

Food Power!

May 29, 2009 by Giulietta Nardone

Hey fellow people who want to change the world in some way,

Just watched How to save the planet: One Man, One Cow, One Planet. The way to end world hunger or at least minimize it, would be to teach people how to grow their own food and how to keep the soil rich with nutrients and life. Genetically modified seeds that grow into plants sprayed with pesticides destroy the soil, render it dead. That deadness and those pesticides work their way into our bodies. Dead soil has no nutrients. We eat nothing.

If we feed the hungry food saturated with pesticides from dead soil, the people that eat that food may survive only to get cancer, which drives up health care. Providing people of all income levels with access to healthy, non GM food via local farms or community farming/gardening makes long term sense spiritually, financially, socially, morally, culturally.

Go into the fear!

May 28, 2009 by Giulietta Nardone

Most of us rarely conquer our fears because we run away from the fear. The secret is to move toward it, to see it as your greatest teacher. Fear acts as a lighthouse, guiding your way to the path you need to be on.

After years of emailing, I realized awhile back that I’d gotten afraid to call people up and tell them how I felt ear-to-ear. Now I do that as well as face-to-face. I feel WAY more powerful.

Be Sassy

May 27, 2009 by Giulietta Nardone

I got in trouble once at one of my corporate jobs for “dressing too flamboyantly.” Translation? I wore a lot of bright colors, big earrings and flipped around my long, wild hair. What’s wrong with that? Did I make the place too alive?

Why do jobs and the humans in them have to be sanitized & sterilized? Why do men all wear those silly suits? And lots of women too? How can wearing the same costume make people more creative or smart?

Who makes up these rules?

Calcium Lies

May 23, 2009 by Giulietta Nardone

Hey rebellious ones,

Just discovered a book called, The Calcium Lie. Will summarize for you, but my long held hunch is that this stuff is dangerous in the doses we’ve been told to take.

Muse thx,


Ready for prime time!

Hi rebellious people!

It seems to me, that too many of us are simply following the person in front of us, assuming that person knows where s/he’s going. Maybe, but I’m guessing that person is following the person in front of them, and they are just playing the adult version of the childhood game “Simon Says.”

Consider taking a “Simon says” time out. Who is Simon anyway? How about changing Simon to your name and deciding what you want in your life?

Muse thx,


Being a muse to myself

May 5, 2009 by Giulietta Nardone

One thing I’ve learned over the years is that the words of encouragement I so easily give to others, I need to give to myself too. How often do you stand in front of the mirror and say, “you can do it.” I’d love you to leave yourself some encouragement in the comment section.

Muse thx,


Making the blogging rounds

May 3, 2009 by Giulietta Nardone

Hello there!

Now that I’ve got my own genuine blog, I’m making the blogging rounds. I enjoy reading what other inspirational bloggers have to say. It’s also a great way to learn about classes or workshops in my own backyard. Today I landed on Squam Art Workshops via a California blogger’s site! Something in my beloved New Hampshire, site of my wild and crazy summer camp days.

Please take a look if you’re interested in art classes nestled in the amazing New Hampshire woods.
