Grateful Thoughts: Simple Ula

It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these. In case you’re new here, I’ll review what Grateful Thoughts is all about. It  began life as Thankful Thursday. Every Thursday, I’d choose a follower and highlight them on my blog. I write a brief synopsis of the blogger, followed by links to 5 articles from their site. Thankful Thursday became Grateful Thoughts when I changed the article from weekly to monthly. So, let’s get started with this edition of Grateful Thoughts.

“Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are” (3).png

That’s all for this edition of Grateful Thoughts. I hope you head over and check out simple Ula. It’s a wonderful site with thoughtfully written articles and beautiful photography.

About Tamara Hoerner (1303 Articles)
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.

I'd love to know what you think!
