The Single Most Important Detox Secret You Need to Know for 2015

As 2014 rolls over, many of us too are rolling over in misery as we pray the new start to 2015 will wash away all our guilt, wrongdoings, failings and shame from the year past. With a new year, however, comes new hope. So I won’t deprive you of that. I’m not a soulless vermin. But with this hope, pay heed to this warning. Hope exposes you to a certain vulnerability. The kind of shonky dealings that promise rapid weight loss pills, or a magical prowess to conquer your fears in one breath, gain 20 pounds of muscle overnight and the inevitable, juicing/superfood/rare Amazonian plant with the power to eliminate every health ailment known to man detox secret for radiant health.

There is a time to rest and a time to boogie - The Urban Ecolfie

Here I am. Sitting here, watching the waves roll over each other imagining myself out there gliding over each one. But I choose to sit and observe. The morning glow of the sun shimmering the most magnificent shades of gold off the white foam. Beneath is a deep blue. During the ever so brief moments of calm it even looks like silky smooth velvet. As the waves crash, I deliberate over whether the sounds come first or because I”m looking at them I then hear the sound.
