I found it! After several posts about Gen-Xers, I found a movie of what many of us have gone through. The movie is The Internship with Vinny Vaughn and Owen Wilson. It is a perfect representation of what the transition has been like for many Gen-Xers and how we can successfully make a change that helps both economically as well as spiritually. Check out this link to the trailer of The Internship: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eckAaoKAYpk.
On Sundays I watch Super Soul Sunday on OWN network. The guest this Sunday was Karen Armstrong. She is a former nun and a leading authority on religion and spirituality. Armstrong has a memoir entitled The Spiral Staircase. Spiral is used as a metaphor for life. Often we think we’re not progressing in life, but actually we’re spiralling upwards.
In Wake Up World’s “Ancient Spirals – What do they mean?” The Spiral is a sacred symbol that reminds us of our evolving journey in life. When used as a personal talisman, the Spiral helps consciousness to accept the turnings and changes of life as it evolves. The acceptance of change is one of the greatest freedoms a human can experience, putting consciousness in the present moment where the power of creation is condensed. On a larger scale, using this symbol assures all beings are reminded of their inward and outward evolution, a balanced and centred state of mind. On water, it carries the power to flow and change.
Essentially this week’s post is just a reminder that even when we think we’re going in circles or worse yet just standing still we’re steadily moving towards or hopes and dreams.
Until next Sunday,

This is day 332 of 365 livefoods. 33 days from today will be one year that I began this blog and my journey of eating raw foods. As has been noted throughout my blog posts, I have had scant success at eating raw foods. I just heard actor/rapper L.L. Cool J say that, “dreams don’t have a deadline.” On that note, I will keep the dream of eating raw foods.
This post is reflective. I spent time today reading past posts for my blog. This will be my 48th post. At the onset of creating this blog I didn’t envision what this journey would entail. What I have learned is that I really enjoy writing. I also enjoy sharing my thoughts to whomever will read them.
So is this the end? I don’t think so. I’ll spend the next couple of weeks figuring out how I’ll transition this blog. What I know for sure is that it has been my pleasure sharing.
Until next Sunday,
