Your happiness...

Things You Think Will Make You Happy? 

Common paradoxes that keep us from living our best lives. Avoid the impulses below, and you'll be primed for lifelong happiness.
-Becoming rich, powerful and famous.
-Treating God as if He were a mail-order catalog by expecting to gratify our every desire.
-Yearning for the "freedom" to achieve every last wish. This is not freedom, but being the slave of your own thoughts.
-Maliciously taking revenge on someone who has hurt you. By doing so, you become like them and poison your own mind.
-Assuming that any one thing will make you happy. Such predictions usually don't turn out to be true.
-Expecting all praise and no criticism. Without criticism, you won't progress.
-To vanquish all your enemies. Animosity never brings happiness.
-To never face adversity. Refraining from doing so will make you weak and vulnerable.
-Expending all your effort on taking care of yourself alone.

Heart Attack & Water

You need your minimum water to help flush the toxins out of your body!

Drinking water at a certain time maximizes its effectiveness on the body:
 
2 glasses of water after waking up - helps activate internal organs
1 glass of water 30 minutes before a meal - helps digestion
1 glass of water before taking a bath - helps lower blood pressure
1 glass of water before going to bed - avoids stroke or heart attack

Water at bed time will also help prevent night time leg cramps. Your leg muscles are seeking hydration when they cramp and wake you up with a Charlie Horse.

Abolition International

Abolition International

1.2 million children have been sold into human trafficking; 200,000 of which are in the United States. Can you imagine a 12 year old being sold into prostitution? Sadly,  this is the average age for girls trafficked into prostitution in the United States.
Abolition International is dedicated to the elimination of human trafficking both domestically and abroad. Founded in 2005 by K-LOVE artist Natalie Grant, the organization is committed to ending the suffering of women and children sold into sexual slavery through accreditation, advocacy, education and restoration efforts.
Natalie was struck with the realization of human trafficking on a trip to the red-light district in Mumbai, India and subsequently took action. “God completely changed my life when I took a trip to India. I saw little, tiny children for sale on the street and I began to learn about the modern day horrors of slavery; human trafficking,” Natalie explains. “I knew I’d be wrecked for life after that trip, but I also knew that I could not stand by and do nothing, I had to do something.”
Natalie originally founded the organization, first known as The Home Foundation, to be a place where victims of trafficking could be cared for and restored. Since its origin, the organization has grown to become Abolition International; a leader in education and advocacy in front of Congress, while still maintaining its focus on restoration and accrediting aftercare facilities.
