It's fall where I live. 
The leaves have fallen awhile ago and now it's snowing.
Sometimes when it's too cold to go outside I like to stay in and doodle.

Living your Truth

Letting go, acrylic, by Jean Hart 

"Do not allow any negativity or ugliness in your surroundings 
or anybody at all  to destroy your confidence 
or affect your growth as a blooming flower."   ~Suzy Kassem 

It takes great courage to recognize when things in your life just are not right. 
It is hard to accept this and harder to make the  necessary changes. 
However, living in a environment that is not supportive is bad for your health.
Being negative, or cynical  yourself about life will not help you to live a life of joy. 
Joy is something that must be cultivated within.

My Little Red Book

My Little Red Book

My Favorite Red Things.

When I was in Salt Lake City last week, my husband and I came across a bookstore , Sam Weller's Zion Bookstore, .  When we went into the bookstore/coffee shop we found that it was actually huge. It is filled with new, old and rare books. 
I found my little RED BOOK in the philosophy area. It's called "Self Portrait" by Kahlil Gibran. You may remember him as the author of The Prophet.  He wrote many more books and I am now a fan and on the hunt for many more of his books.
How many of you have accidentally found really cool books by going into unexpected bookstores??
I would love to hear what you found.
Always inspired and willing to share,

The Soul is on Earth for its own delight

Flower Girl, acrylic, Jean Hart 

Healing cards
Caroline Myss and Peter Occhiogrosso

This day's card is
The soul is on Earth for its own delight. 

Consider this amazing possibility, you incarnated on this earth just to experience the joy of being alive. Do you even know what gives you joy? Do something about that today.

What gives me joy? 
Well, today is scheduled to be a house cleaning day. Yes, its simple, but a clean house gives me joy.
Not only will this house be cleaned today but it is time to decorate for Fall.
It's hard to believe that it is still Fall with snow almost 2 feet at my door but, I do not want to miss this season.
I love Fall and now that Halloween is over, lets move on to Thanksgiving and being grateful for all we have.

"Sometimes the simplest wisdom is the hardest to acknowledge. like the fact that pleasure and joy can be beneficial to your health.  When mystical poets such as Rumi and Kabir use objects of beauty and delight, like roses or wine, as metaphors for the Divine, they're subtly linking the excitement of Earthly pleasures with Divine enjoyment. Recent medical research seems to agree that what pleases us, beautiful music, delicious food, and soothing aromas, can also improve our health and help us resist illness."

I'm glad to hear this news. It's been awhile since I have turn over a health card .  
I like the fact that my environment can play a part in healing my health. 
I also believe that a strong mind will do it to. 
I woke up this morning, with my mind set to create the home and lifestyle I needed to be happy, healthy, and strong. 
Have you started your gratitude list for this Fall. 
gratitude and grace is not just for Fall, but boy what a wonderful time to think about all that we have and be thankful. 
Be Inspired,

Bernie Sanders fighting the right cause

Pharmaceutical drugs is a issue for everyone.
Think it doesn't effect you because you're young and not currently taking prescription drugs? 
Wait until you have you to take care of your parents.
Wait until you become sick. 
Wait until you have to take medicine for daily diagnosis like Thyroid or Blood Pressure, or eye drops.
It was the price of my eye drops that got me on this research of pharmaceutical  companies.
When my pharmacy automatically changed my prescription to generic form and the pills weren't working, my eyes got worse .
My doctor said generic pills don't work,  here is an eye drop that hopefully will work. 
AT A COST OF 1,200.00 !!
 I want better options.    
Here is a Presidential Candidate who has the right idea. 
Bernie Sanders 

The senator went on to call out that lobbying is a major problem, as the pharmaceutical industry as a whole spent around $230 million lobbying Congress during 2014 alone, which was nearly $65 million more than any other industry spent during the year.
The awful truthIn his proposal, the Senator noted some grim statistics about the state of prescription drugs cost in America today.
  • Americans pay the highest prices for prescription drugs in the world, spending twice as much per person as the average major industrialized country.
  • In 2014, more than 35 million Americans choose not to fill a prescription because they felt they could not afford its cost.
  • Americans saw prescription drug prices jump 12.6 percent last year, more than double the rise in overall medical costs.
These facts clearly outrage the Senator, and he states plainly:
What we need is a national healthcare system that puts people ahead of profits and health ahead of special interests.
The Senator offered up several ideas for how his legislation could fix this problem, which included ideas like calling on the Secretary of the Health and Human Services to negotiate harder on its Medicare Part D prescription drug program, allowing for drug reimportation from Canada, creating pricing transparency, and introducing stiffer fraud convictions. The proposal's intention is that if these ideas were enacted that they would save the country hundreds of billions of dollars over the coming decade. 
Medicare-for-all?While Senator Sanders is certainly hoping that his legislation proposals will help to reverse the trend of rising drug costs in America, it's clear that his overall goal is to transition our healthcare model to a single-payer system, which would provide Medicare to everyone, regardless of age.
If investors who thought the Affordable Care Act, also know as Obamacare, was a big change for the industry, you can only imagine how implementing a single-payer system would work to upend our current system.
What this means for your portfolioYou can bet that this legislation is causing some pharmaceutical giants like PfizerJohnson & Johnson, and Novartis, to shake in their boots. Each of these companies generates billions of dollars in profit off of the current prescription drug system, so you can bet they would fight tooth and nail to protect themselves in the future.
One part of the market that this legislation could be especially troubling for is the companies behind the next-generation cholesterol busters known as PCSK9 inhibitors. While these new drugs have only recently launched, prices announced after they received approval were so high that they caused Express Scripts, the largest pharmacy benefit manager in the country, to state that U.S. payers and patients could end up paying more than $100 billion each year for the drug. The company warned that "PCSK9 inhibitors are on a path to become the costliest therapy class this country has ever seen". 
Investors in PCSK9 inhibitor manufactures Amgen and Regeneron are counting on big sales from this new class of drugs to drive future profitability growth, so if Senator Sanders' legislation ends up significantly reining in the revenue potential of these drugs you can bet these companies investors won't be happy.
Now what?
For the time being, Sanders' ideas are certainly a threat to the long-term profitability of many pharmaceutical companies, but we won't know for quite some time if any of them will see the light of day. One thing we know for certain if that every big pharma company will be watching this story closely -- and investors in the space would be wise to do the same.
