I turned an assignment in yesterday, so I had a little extra time. I came across this beautiful poem by Maya Angelou and wanted to share it with all of you. Whether you’ve seen it, or not, it’s quite inspiring and worth a look.
She talks about how we are each unique. If you travel the world, you won’t find any people who are identical, even twins are different. However, these are just differences on the surface: our skin tone, our hair color, our eye color, our height or weight.
But, when you look within people, get past our outer shell,
Welcome to The Purple Almond!
My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education.
For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.”
I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body.
I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.
