Finally.. a camera =]

    Look, after waiting so long to actually have a decent camera, tada! 

My camera :)

    I didn't even edit the pic, I'm so excited. The battery arrived, camera works great. It's great being able to realize some of my goals, and to be working towards my dreams ♡


p.s. Have a fabulous weekend, and please be safe.

A Quick Note

    Just checking in. I've been working a lot of overtime, but I'm still very excited about my progress towards my goals =]

    I've finally got the car, as soon as it's legal; I've connected all of my social media; the battery for my badass camera is on the way; I've got plenty of donations to work with on my first trip out with the Underground Homeless Initiative; my YouTube is ready to go live, or stream all of my projects.. basically, it's all coming together nicely and I'm happy =] 
    I'm working on fundraiser ideas, and looking into getting LLC, or at least becoming a legit non-profit! 
    I've got a few other things I'm brainstorming, but I will say I've completed an application for further education and am thinking of making a trip to Israel next year ♡♡.

Have a great evening!
Love to all,
~Serenity ๐Ÿ’š


Praying Mantis

   Here's one of the pics I took of a Praying Mantis the other day.

A new book =]

     Hello everyone. I'm happy☺ I just ordered the Sully Erna memoir, The paths we choose, online!

      I can't wait for it to get delivered I've wanting to read it for so long <3
      Have a happy, safe and productive week.


Update: the book did come in! And it’s awesome :) I love Sully, he’s been such an inspiration to me for many years๐Ÿ’•



      We are all susceptible. Life is hard...if you manage to figure out how to be happy, remember, momma said there'd be days like this. I just try to remember that tomorrow is another day. Breathe in, Breathe out.. and most importantly, to hold my tongue. It's hard, soooo hard sometimes.

     Response really does make all the difference in a situation though. Try as I may, I cannot be all positivity and light all the time.

       Music. That's what I turn to, nowadays. I have playlists everywhere, and I've started a routine of listening to my Inspiration playlist when I'm getting ready for work; my chill one when I'm stressed; Old School when I'm feeling down and so-on. When all else fails, I need a MetalVention! There's always a local metal show going on somewhere =]
Anyways, have a wonderful weekend!!

Smoothie Trials #1

     Back to Basics has been researching herbs, methods and their uses. I'm pleased to announce our first #SuperDrink smoothie! Let's call it ummm..... Hay for Humans ;) 

     The main function of numero uno, is overall health, stamina, & improving immune function 

  • 1\4 tsp alfalfa leaf powder
  • 1\4 tsp. rosemary leaf powder
  • 1\4 tsp. BlackBerry leaf powder
  • 1\2 tsp. Turmeric
  • 1\2 cup organic coconut milk
  • 1\2  cup water
  • 1 tsp. real Lime juice (or lemon)
   Make sure you mix thoroughly.
Add a Tbsp. of  raw, organic honey if you would prefer it sweetened.
    I've been drinking one or two per day for about a week. To get better. Then, I suppose I would want to have it at least once a week, if not twice.

This recipe will also be on the Back to basics page, along with the uses and benefits of all herbs used in the recipe.

Thanks for stopping by=]

Are you on Autopilot?

     Really. Are you stuck on Autopilot? Automatically doing the same thing, day after day.. are you used to it? You probably hate it, but it's your <un>comfort zone, you're unhappy safe place. Maybe it's all you know?  However, your inner self knows better, even if you don't realize it. It reminds you, eats at you.. nagging. 'Hey, I want more, I deserve better'.

     Why are you still ignoring it? You KNOW it's true. You KNOW that things don't feel right. Years of insults and letdowns, perhaps abuse, has kept us ALL down. Look around... It's not just 'poor you', it's poor everybody.
      Humans have evolved alright, into a huge stressed out, hopeless, confused mess! Of course it's every man for himself when there is no love for oneself. Happiness starts with forgiving yourself, then others; loving yourself, so you may then love others.

     World Peace IS possible... if we'd let go of Hate, Racism, Judgement. For the Love of God! We all came from the same Creator. We are all brothers & sisters, and are meant to love one another, not fight.

      Too many 'Influencers' are promoting their own agendas. They are idolizing their own greed, power.. whatever. And we all follow the Leader. Well, there are many standing up to the MADNESS, and we aren't falling for it.
      Let's follow a peaceful path.; a love-filled life; a simpler, easier existence.

Anything else is just too much for me anymore. I'm not the judge, the jury or God, and neither are you. I'm not perfect, I've made so many mistakes.. so have you. I'm not gorgeous, skinny, brilliant or rich. But, it just doesn't matter anymore! Love. Love is all that matters. When you realize it, everything else seems ok.

One small step forward, every day.. is all it takes to change patterns.

~Love, Serenity <3


Hello, Happy People!!!

Hello there!

     I'm pleased to announce, the Underground Homeless Initiative has been taking in donations and is off to a great start. If you know of any 'camps' I can deliver to, or have donations, please use the contact form below. Starting next week, we will be making trips out, so if we need to make pickups we can do that as well. This would be a good time to take in non-perishable food if anyone has some.

      I'm very excited! I have been writing as well, and will be posting more. Thanks for your patience!




Slacking on the site construction

All apologies...

    I've been working and planning and resting. Today I realized that I've neglected my work on the website. I will resume ASAP!
    I wish the battery in my camera would work, my videos would be so much better.
     I hope your weekend is going well.. No worries; Spread positivity, it's contagious.
Remember, we are all struggling with this thing called life. We all have issues and problems.

Hmm.. maybe we could get together and help one another? Love thy neighbor =]
