As we begin our Financial Freedom course, I thought it fitting to start this week with inspirational quotes by one of the biggest influences in my life, Suze Orman.


Suze Orman is a financial guru who used to own a restaurant and learnt how to finesse financial opportunities through different successful business endeavours; that were not always successful. In other words, she learnt the hard way.


Here are ten quotes from Suze that we hope will inspire you:


1.People first, then money, then things.


2. No one's ever achieved financial fitness with a January resolution that's abandoned by February.

3.In all realms of life it takes courage to stretch your limits, express your power, and fulfill your potential... it's no different in the financial realm.


4. It's better to do nothing with your money than something you don't understand.

 

5. Many people are in the dark when it comes to money, and I'm going to turn on the lights.

 

6. The key to making money is to stay invested.


7. True generosity is an offering; given freely and out of pure love. No strings attached. No expectations. Time and love are the most valuable possession you can share.


8. A wise woman recognizes when her life is out of balance and summons the courage to act to correct it, she knows the meaning of true generosity, happiness is the reward for a life lived in harmony, with a courage and grace.

He is The 14th Dalai Lama, believed to be the reincarnation of Siddartha (Bhudda). He touches many with his charitable work and kindness around The World.


Here are 10 inspirational quotes by The Dalai Lama:



1. Remember that sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck.


2. Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.


3. Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive.


4. This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.


5. Choose to be optimistic, it feels better.

6. The true hero is the one who conquers his own anger and hatred.

7. Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them.


8. The purpose of our lives is to be happy.


9. There are only two days in the year that nothing can be done. One is called yesterday and the other is called tomorrow. Today is the right day to love, believe, do and mostly live.


10. Man sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.

10 Things I am leaving behind with my 20’s as I turn 30.

I just turned 30. And, truthfully, I have been afraid of leaving my 20’s. I’ve had a lot of great memories and loved having been in my 20’sBut, like with everything else, change is inevitable. Time has to pass and with that, we get older.


It seems silly but moving forward from my 20’s felt like I hadn’t achieved what I had wanted to by the time that I had wanted to. I had always thought that I would have a family of my own by my 30th birthday and the thought of it not happening saddened and disappointed me.


With the support and encouragement of loved ones around me, I came to the realization that things do not equate to time. Turning 30 has helped me rid myself of society, other people’s and my own expectations on to an age, particularly an age that seems to be monumental.


As I release my expectations, I release these other nine things too:


1. BS


2. Drama.


3. Insecurity.


4. Neediness.


5. Desperation.


6. External validation.


7. Toxicity.


8. People who only want to others down.


9. The need to please.

7 Questions about Aquarius answered.

IMG_5677.PNG

 

Seeing as it is my Birthday in this Zodiac Sign, I thought it would be fitting to start with this Zodiac. This is the twelfth Zodiac and is ruled by Uranus and Saturn, usually meaning that this Zodiac appears to be cold and distant to be many people.


The dates of this Zodiac are from 20th of January-18th of February, the dates can range depending on where in The World you are from.


Here are 7 common questions about Aquarius answered:

1. I can’t read an Aquarius. Why not?
Aquarius is the most unpredictable sign of all. They may be into saving humanity but dislike people around them. They may be quiet and have outbursts of passion. They may claim to want stability but often find themselves in unstable circumstances. One thing to accept about Aquarians is that they will always surprise you.


2. Why are they so flakey?
It stems from their need to be authentic. Every Aquarius has a deep desire to be unique and free of any commitments that stop them from losing their identity. They like themselves and don’t want to change so if you make them do something that makes them change, they will fight you by not showing up or cancelling out of fear of losing themselves.


3. My Aquarius partner won’t marry me, why?
This is not personal. Aquarians don’t believe in being like other people, in fact, they look down upon people who conform to society- seeing it as the easy way out. The ultimate fear of an Aquarius is to settle: in love, life and career. They may or may not feel like you are ‘The One’ but regardless, they want to be unique. They strive to keep their identity and to prove people wrong.


4. Why do Aquarius lack emotions?
It’s not that they lack emotions; it’s that they would rather deal with their emotions alone. Because Aquarius like to be authentic, they don’t like hearing other people’s advice. They would rather figure it out on their own. They believe that a lot of people are selfish, manipulative and only want them to conform so they don’t show emotions to avoid being manipulated, betrayed and used by other people.


5. Is my Aquarius-Ex over me?
Probably. Aquarius are masters of forgetting about people. When people are in their lives, they are fully committed. However , when an Aquarius has moved on, they will act like you don’t exist. Because, to them, you don’t. They are very efficient in controlling their minds. So, if you are not in their life, they don’t care about you.


6. Why are Aquarius so judgemental?
Because they want what’s best for you. Aquarius often say what others think but don’t have the energy or time to sugarcoat what comes out of their mouth. They believe that no matter how they say it, the message is the same.To them, facts are facts. It comes across judgemental but their hearts are accepting of you and who you are, they just want you to do more, be more and progress in your life.


7. Why do Aquarius hardly say ‘I love you’?

Aquarius don’t believe in external validation. They believe that you should believe you are the best because they believe that they are the best. To them, everyone should be their best cheerleader. Also, as I mentioned before, they are very detached so words of endearment are not their thing. They will show you that they love you but hardly tell you. If you want to hear these words, ask them to say them and I guarantee you they will because they don’t want you to feel as though they don’t care about; lack of terms of endearment is just a part of their nature.

10 Inspirational quotes by Albert Einstein.

IMG_5626.JPG

 

When most people think of a genius, Albert Einstein comes to mind. Einstein famously created the equation E=MC (2), which is related to the speed of light. Which measures how much matter can be converted or destroyed.


Besides his inventions and theories, he was known for his wisdom.


Here are 10 of his quotes to help inspire you:

1. Imagination is more important than knowledge.


2. Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.


3. No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.

 

4. There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.


5. In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.

6. If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.


7. Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.


8. Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.

9. Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.

10. A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.

5 words that you need to remove from your vocabulary.

IMG_5485.JPG

Image by Unsplash  

 

Words carry power, and I've found called myself names I thought I didn't mean, only to find out later that Ididmean them. Because behind every word is intention.

If my intention is to be kind to myself and to others, then I have no reason to use the following words:

 

1. Stupid

We call ourselves, people and things stupid if they don't do what we want them to when we want them to. Releasing this word from your vocabulary allows you to accept things the way they are. Who are we to judge who someone is? What something is? And when something occurs?

2. Fat

If you're calling yourself and others this word, STOP! This word spreads pure hate. Do you want to contribute hate or love to this world? If you want to be a positive influence in this world, using this word will do the opposite of your intention.

3. Should

If things were meant to be a certain way, they would be that way. If you were meant to be with your former partner, you would be. If you were meant to be a millionaire, you would be one. If you were meant to have different parents, you would have different parents. You are exactly where you are meant to be, and you can use what you have to progress. Wishing things were different from how they are now will stop you from progressing successfully.

4. Hate

It isn't only a strong word, but a word that promotes negativity. Why focus on what's going wrong with your day and life, when you can focus on what's going right.

5. Loser

People have their own routes in this journey of life. Most of the time there isn't a winner and a loser because all of us have something to learn from life. If someone has decided to live life the way that they want to, which may seem bizarre to you and others, you aren't the judge of how and what they are meant to achieve. Have enough respect and consideration for people to let them live life the way they want, without them being fearful of labels and restrictions.

10 Random acts of kindness that help The World go around.

IMG_5602.JPG

The Dalai Lama famously said, "My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness."

Whether you're religious or not, kindness can go a long way toward improving your overall state of mind and sense of happiness. Here are ways that you can practice kindness in your daily lives:

1. Ask your roommate or neighbor how they're doing.

Maybe they need someone to talk to, maybe they feel alone or maybe they just wanted someone to ask them that simple question. It might mean a lot to them.

2. Smile at a cashier or vendor.

When you work long hours interacting with the public, you often come into contact with less-than-pleasant people. A simple smile can improve a worker's day immensely.

3. Tip at least 20%.

If you have the money to go out and have dinner, you can spare a bit extra to leave a decent tip. While money isn't the cure for sadness, an extra couple of bucks might help out with a metro card or a phone bill. You never know when your generosity will be needed.

4. Compliment yourself!

Your love comes from the inside and is shared to others. The only way that you can truly spread love to others is by loving yourself first.

5. Offer a friend an ear just to listen.

Yes, just listen! Your friend might not need to hear what you have to say. They might need you to just sit and listen without judgment or criticism.

6. Move to the side.

There's no need to stand in front of a pathway so that others can't get through. The only thing this action achieves is frustration by those wanting to get past you. If creating frustration is your goal, stand in the way! However, if you want to be kind to others, move to the side and let others pass by.

7. Let someone go ahead of you.

Holding a door open and allowing someone to step ahead of you is a nice reminder that the world doesn't have to revolve around you and where you want to go. It is a simple act of consideration.

8. Use your cellphone considerately.

It's a sad state of affairs when a loved one tries to have a heart-to-heart conversation, only to be met with a distracted, inattentive response. Put your phone away! Have some quality time with your loved ones and surroundings.

9. Let people be!

Judging and criticizing someone unnecessarily can be hurtful for the person who is being judged. Life can be challenging as it is. Why make someone's life harder by adding negativity that doesn't have to be there?

10. Say thank you!

Gratitude is not only for the person you're thanking, but also for the one doing the thanking. Gratitude can remind you how fortunate you have been to have received something that is worth saying thank you to in the first place.

5 negative behaviour that I am done with.

IMG_5215.JPG

When I look back on how I've dealt with difficult times in the past, I realize that I've spent a lot of wasted time on negative mindsets that haven't helped me progress. In fact, they did the opposite. I complicated many simple situations by overthinking, analyzing and ignoring signs that were right in front of me.

So I came up with a list of five negative behaviors that I wasted time indulging, and I won't waste time on them again:

 

1. Believing people who have insulted me.

We live in a wonderful world, but most of us have been hurt. People who have been hurt and cannot move past the hurt will try to hurt others, either intentionally or unintentionally. I've wasted a lot of time believing hurt people's insults, never realizing that people who were ready to insult me were ready to insult others too. Insults are rarely about the person who's being insulted; they're more about the person doing the insulting.

 

2. Convincing someone to love me.

I wasted time trying to convince a former partner of mine to love me. All that time spent waiting for him to call me back, hinting at him to buy me flowers and waiting for him to see how grateful he should've been to have me could've been spent on someone who genuinely appreciates me. Not only was I wasting time, but I was also subconsciously telling myself that I wasn't worth being loved. Ultimately, every single person is worth being loved.

 

3. Beating myself up about the past.

Whatever has happened is done. I used to spend a lot of time wanting to change what my behavior in the past. The clock moves forward, and wanting to change what has happened is impossible. All that time spent on looking in the past can be used to help me progress in my future. The future is something I can actually do something about.

 

4. Judging people on the decisions they've made.

I won't be happy with some people's decisions, and that's OK. I don't have to live with the consequences their own actions — they do. Time spent criticizing and judging someone else's decisions is time truly wasted. That time could have been used to help me progress in my own life. I can't control what others have done with their own lives, so there's no need to judge them based on my expectations and views on life. 

 

5. Excusing selfish behavior.

I once had a friend who behaved in a way that seemed like she thought life was all about her. She would call me or want to see me only when she needed me to be there for her; however, when I asked the same from her, she would disappear. I wasted a lot of time convincing myself that she didn't intend to be selfish, and I excused her behavior because I feared losing a friend. After it all, I did lose her as a friend, and all that time I spent convincing myself that she wasn't being selfish could've been used on appreciating a friend who actually isn't selfish and gives me back what I give them.

3 mitos sobre el cuidado de la piel y la verdad real.

IMG_5481.JPG

Cuando se trata de cuidado de la piel, hay información limitada por ahí. Como especialista en piel, creo que es mi trabajo ser informativo y difundir las verdades que he aprendido sobre el cuidado de la piel.




Aquí hay 3 cosas que he escuchado sobre el cuidado de la piel que no son ciertas y que se han aclarado:




1. Las espinillas son causadas por la piel obstruida.

A menudo escucho a la gente decir que sus espinillas y el acné son causados  por los poros bloqueados, que están en forma incorrecta. Este es un error común de que toda la piel dañada se crea por poros bloqueados; Sin embargo, la mayoría de los granos y el acné se producen debido a una producción excesiva de aceite y bacterias en la piel. Esto se puede curar de diferentes maneras, según el tipo de piel, como: exfoliación, usar una máscara o cambiar la rutina de la piel.




2. La exfoliación es ideal para tu piel.

Esto puede ser cierto, pero no siempre es así. Nuestra piel trabaja en ciclos, ciclos de 4 semanas. Lo que significa que su piel tarda 4 semanas en deshacerse de la capa de piel. Recomiendo la exfoliación una vez al mes para ayudar con este proceso, pero algo más que eso interrumpirá el proceso natural de desprendimiento de la piel y conducirá a la sequedad de la piel, los granos y el acné.




3. Las espinillas y el acné son causados  por la piel grasa.

La piel es el órgano más grande del cuerpo, es un sistema muy inteligente. Parte de este sistema está diseñado para corregir la sequedad en la piel. Casi el 70% de las personas sufre de sequedad que causa acné y granos. Esto sucede porque cuando la piel está seca, nuestra piel lo compensa con un exceso de aceite que produce piel grasa. A menudo, la cura para las espinillas y el acné es encontrar una rutina de aceite que complemente la piel en lugar de secarla.

My Evolution as a Woman with Hali Tsotetsi.

FullSizeRender.jpg

One image from Unsplash

 

With the introduction of our new segment, we found it fitting to sit down with our Founder and Editor-in-Chief, Hali Tsotetsi. If you’d like to find out more about her, click on our *About BiologiqueLife* button.


She expands on her evolution as a woman:


What has been a big part of your growth as a woman?

Heartbreak, pain and not getting what I want. For some reason, ever since I was a kid I thrive off of challenge. When I am faced with something that might break another, it gives me drive.


Even how I was born is an example of that. I was discovered in my Mother’s ovaries during an operation that she had. She was told to have me aborted because of the high risk that I might be born stillborn, with autism or other mental challenges. However, my Mother believed that I would be fine and healthy. When I was delivered, she was right. Since I was a baby, I have always been “re-born” out of difficulty- that is truly when I grow.


Who has inspired you to stay true to your role as a strong woman?
One of the great advantages of social media is that now, we have so many examples around us to inspire us. The first example is my Mother. She is the definition of strength, she never gives up on something and has instilled that in all of her daughters. The second example is Oprah, a fellow Aquarius and big change-maker, I identify with her need to be genuine. To me, you can’t be strong by being fake; authenticity is the foundation for true strength. The third example is Maya Angelou, there is nothing more powerful than people who spread the message of forgiveness and taking the high road. Which, I think was her life’s message.
Although I have had many examples, the last one is Iyanla Vanzant. As a fellow Spiritual Teacher and Influencer, it is admirable that she stands firm. When you are in the process of healing someone else, there are moments when they don’t always like you but, as an healer, it is important to commit to why the person sought you out to begin with. She has shown me that to be an healer, you can’t dote and pamper someone. Sometimes the best thing for someone is to tell them ‘no.


What other women have supported you when you needed it the most?
So many! I used to live in New York for ten years and although I love to talk about the negatives of living in New York; you can rely on women to have your back. I’ve met the most courageous and beautiful women living in that city. There are the obvious answers of support when I need it most like family and friends; however, I have also been supported by strangers.
When I first started practicing hot yoga everyday, I would take the midday class and a Dear Teacher of mine would teach that class. She didn’t know it then but her presence and ability to nurture had such an impact on my life. She helped me through so much. She taught me the true definition of a teacher: I am here for you if you need me but if you don’t need me, that’s okay. I won’t force my persona on you if you are not ready to listen to what I have to say.


What has been the hardest part of being a strong woman?
My romantic life. It’s interesting, I have heard women saying that other women are intimidated by their strength; however, I have not found that to be true. I have experienced men being intimidated by my strength by either running away from me or trying to dim my light. I made a promise to myself three years ago that, I would rather be alone than have someone dim my light by making me into what they want. Nobody wins that way.


Where do you see yourself evolving in the next few years?
I was just talking with a good friend, who is a man, the other day. I know that we are supposed to be talking about women but he noticed that I put a lot of pressure on myself and I realized that I have become so accustomed to thriving out of challenge that now, it doesn’t feel like work if I am not under pressure. So, for the next few years, I am working on not needing to be doing many things at once. I have been focusing on my career and now it’s about balance, going on dates, adorning myself and the one that I have chosen to be with.


What imprint would you like to leave on the world?
Great question! That love, faith and hope are alive and the most real things that you can ever imagine. I feel like the schooling system does the opposite of that. So, a lot of us spend 18 years being trained into disbelief of this positive mentality. That’s why I disliked school so much: I believed then, as I do now, that no one else can determine my success and my worth in This World. It is only between me and God.

3 Myths about skin and the actual truths.

IMG_5164.JPG

Image from unSplash

 

When it comes to skincare, there is limited information out there. As a skin specialist, I think it’s my job to be informative and spread the truths that I have learnt about skincare.


Here are 3 things that I have heard about skincare which are not true that are cleared up:


1. Pimples are caused by clogged skin.


I often hear people say that their pimples and acne is caused by blocked pores, which is in incorrect. This is a common misconception that all bad skin is created by blocked pores; however, most pimples and acne occur due to an overproduction of oil and bacteria on the skin. This can be cured by different ways depending on your skin type like: exfoliation, wearing a mask or changing your skin routine.


2. Exfoliation is great for your skin.


This can be true but it is not always the case. Our Skin works in cycles, 4-week cycles. Meaning that your skin takes 4 weeks to shed it’s layer of skin. I recommend exfoliation once a month to help with this process but anything more than that will disrupt the natural process of your skin shedding and lead to dryness of skin, pimples and acne.


3. Pimples and acne are caused by oily skin.


The skin is the largest organ in the body, it is a very intelligent system. Part of this system is designed to correct dryness in the skin. Almost 70% of people suffer from dryness that causes acne and pimples. This happens because when skin is dry, our skin makes up for it by overproducing oil which leads to oily skin. Often the cure for pimples and acne is to find an oil routine that compliments the skin instead of drying it out.

Cher garçon insécurisé ...

IMG_5352.JPG

Cher non sécurisé,




Je te vois. Je t'entends. Tu es assez.


Ne soyez pas victime de la tendance des garçons et des hommes à penser qu’ils ont besoin de voitures, d’argent et d’un «physique gonflé» pour se sentir dignes. Toi seul suffit.



Je sais que la société vous dit d'être fort, mais je vous demande d'être vulnérable parfois parce que parfois, la vulnérabilité fait la force. Il existe une idée fausse selon laquelle pour être un homme, il faut être masculin. Parfois, être un homme signifie que vous devez être féminine.



Votre féminité vous permettra d'être qui vous êtes vraiment. Tout le monde a la masculinité et la féminité en eux. Je suis désolé de vous avoir dit de ne pas ressentir. Le sentiment est important parce que quand on se sent, on peut comprendre.



Vous pouvez comprendre pourquoi et comment vous faites les choses que vous faites. Ainsi, au lieu d'enterrer qui vous êtes vraiment, vous pouvez embrasser ce que vous êtes vraiment. Vous méritez d'être qui vous êtes.


S'il vous plaît, laissez les gens entrer. Je suis désolé pour tous ceux qui vous ont dit de ne pas le faire; Cependant, vous n'atteindrez pas votre potentiel en bloquant les gens. Laissez les gens et l'amour dans.


Lorsque votre partenaire veut mieux pour vous, prenez les devants. Ils ne vous insultent pas; ils voient votre potentiel et veulent grandir avec vous.


Peu importe combien de fois on vous dit que vous n’êtes pas digne, ne les croyez pas. Vous êtes digne de toutes les bénédictions qui vous parviennent.

4 Things that I wish I could tell anyone who has ever bullied me.

Unfortunately, bullies are a part of life. When I was younger, I would spend time running away from people who would go out of their way to make me feel less than, people who intentionally insulted me and people who told me (in so many ways) that I was not worthy.


High School was the time when I was bullied the most. And, while I was going through it, it didn’t fully process that I was being bullied because I didn’t believe that there were people who were so intentionally mean-spirited.


Once I could fully grasp that I was being bullied, I decided to stand up for myself and I made a choice to never ever let anyone try and make me feel less than. Overcoming bullying was not easy but I did and will continue to do so because I know that I am strong enough to handle it and sometimes, them.


If I ever saw the people who have previously bullied me, I would tell them the following:


1. I forgive you.

Yes, I forgive you for all that you put me through. The older that I get, I understand people more and more. I know that the place that you acted from is insecurity and not feeling worthy. Because people who feel worthy do not have the urge to make others feel unworthy. If you felt valid, you would treat people as such. Your behaviour is an example of what is going on in your mind. I hope my forgiveness helps you find peace.

Peace that you (and everyone) deserves.


2. Thank you.

You helped me access my strength and for it, I am a stronger and more capable person. They say that a diamond only starts to shine when pressure is applied to it. So, I owe a part of the twinkle in my eye to you. A lot of your actions felt un-necessary but now I know that it was always necessary in making me the strong and capable person that I am today. You gave me lemons and I made lemonade. I thank you for giving me some of the ingredients that I needed to make and shape me.


3. Only you have to live with your consequences.

When I think about you, sometimes I get angry thinking that a person like you is using your life to spread negativity. You have chosen this life to exude negativity. Of all the things that you have chosen to spread, negativity seems like a pathetic choice. Even though it may seem that way towards me, I am not the one that has to live with your consequences, you do! You have to live with what you have done. That is why I release any judgement because only God can judge others. I will continue to focus on the energy that I put out in this World. And, hope that I put out positivity and love.


4. Hating you is no longer an option.

I have spent a lot of time hating you. But, hating you only means that I have to spend time thinking about you. While I create negative thoughts in my head, you are unaware of them. So, what is the point of these thoughts anyway? My body is a temple and recreating what someone else has done to me is not serving to create peace and love in this body and mind. Therefore to you and everyone, I choose to release any hate, anger and animosity.

Dear Insecure Boy...

 Dear Insecure,


I see you. I hear you. You are enough.


Please don’t fall victim to the trend of boys and men feeling as though they need cars, money and a ‘pumped-up physique’ to feel worthy. You, alone, are enough.


I know that society tells you to be strong but I am asking you to be vulnerable sometimes because sometimes, vulnerability is strength. There’s a misconception that to be a man, you need to be masculine. Sometimes being a man means that you need to be feminine.


Your femininity will allow you to be who you truly are. Everyone has masculinity and femininity in them. I’m sorry that they told you not to feel. Feeling is important because when you feel, you can understand.


You can understand why and how you do the things that you do. So that instead of burying who you truly are, you can embrace who you truly are. You deserve to be who you are.


Please let people in. I’m sorry for all those people who told you not to; however, you will not reach your full potential by blocking people off. Let people and love in.


When your partner wants better for you, step up to the plate. They are not insulting you; they see your potential and they want to grow with you.


No matter how many times you are told that you are not worthy, please don’t believe them. You are worthy of every blessing that comes your way.

Sincerely,
