Ready, Set, Go! by Emily Lewin

Bright Ideas Collective

IMG_2439The secret of living a creative life is (drum roll) to start living a creative life. Start. Do it. Begin. Now. That’s it. You just have to do it. I was listening today to an interview with Brandon Stanton (of Humans of New York) and they asked the classic question, “If you could go back in time to before you were successful, what would you tell yourself?” His response, “Just start doing it. Don’t wait for perfect.” He talked about the fact that we can spend so much time preparing or waiting for the opportune moment that we never actual start. Even if what you start doing is bad at first, the fact that you started is the most important element. By the time you get to be successful the work you’re doing most likely won’t look anything like the “perfect” you were imagining.

Drink more water – Gallon a day challenge


I’m sure many of you have seen the article floating around social media about the woman in the UK who drank 3 liters of water a day for one month. For us non-metric folk, that’s approximately 101 ounces. She took a before picture and an after picture and documented how she was feeling. The changes she reports are remarkable. And the before and after pictures are startling. She felt better, less headaches, better skin quality, and lost a bit of weight all by just increasing her water intake.

Confession: I do not drink near enough water. My fluid consumption revolves mainly around 2 cups of coffee in the morning, a couple of cans of sparkling water, possibly an iced tea and maybe one more cup of coffee in the afternoon. On a good day I’m getting 60 to 70 ounces of fluid. While that’s not entirely terrible, I can…

HI-Drate H2O

Bad breath, also called halitosis, can be embarrassing and in some cases may even cause anxiety. It’s no wonder that store shelves are overflowing with gum, mints, mouthwashes and other products designed to fight bad breath. But many of these products are only temporary measures because they don’t address the cause of the problem.

Certain foods, health conditions and habits are among the causes of bad breath. In many cases, you can improve bad breath with consistent proper dental hygiene. If simple self-care techniques don’t solve the problem, see your dentist or physician to be sure a more serious condition isn’t causing your bad breath.hand over mouth

Drinking adequate amount of water throughout the day is also essential for keeping your breath fresh

“And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
“And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.” – Genesis 1:21-22


Genesis 1:21-22 · Ezekiel 47:1-10 · John 8:12-32 · Psalm 104:24-36


The natural world exists from the spiritual world and everything in it corresponds to something in the spiritual as its source; so throughout the Word the mind is described in terms of nature.

Water, as we all know, is the natural representative of truth, and the sea is the general memory in which are stored all the knowledges of the mind, whether true or false. Fishes are those knowledges vivified…
