I am a Woman....

Lost in translation....RESET....Gratitude

I have been in a whirlwind since 2013 began! Off balance yes....thrown off course, yes... Confused, yes...frustrated, upset, angry, crying, remorseful, just out right pissed off at myself and the universe... Yes my DIvine.... I was angry at all things we deem sacred in the happenstances of life..... Truth be told, I still have my moments, but I am learning (presently) to just give in. Go with the flow....key word....FLOW. At the beginning of the year I never imagined that falling in love would send me to a place of pure sick pregnancy bliss, traveling through three states over the past four months, losing my car, masters program( for the second time), my house, independence....and yes for a while my sanity. Lost. Dark places creep upon us at the most inopportune moments.....everyday is a battle to stay afloat in a web of murky depressed waters that once drowned you before. Too familiar. But I refuse to go back there. So... Here I am at this place, this space of carrying new life... Surrounded by family, sheltered, resting in the small, quaint living quarters of my toddler in the comfort of her grandmother, aunt and cousins....while I wrestle with reality and pray desperately for God to let me wake up and press the RESET button! But I am awakened.... Only to find gratitude in the midst of my turmoil. I give thanks. And suddenly the ideas be gain to flow, the writing is non stop, meditation comes easier...and I feel the life within me nudge me to a place of total surrender. My life is limitless.... And I am far from the end of living. So for now I will rest. Continue to write up these business plans....and give thanks for creativity.

If you are a Mom or Mom –to-be, or just a woman who favors the holistic health lifestyle, the assumption is that you are destined to be a “Medicine Woman”. I am Kira Buckley, a herbalist, CMT , Educator, Holistic Health Consultant and Mom who has a passion for holistic healing. I have an awesome passion to share tips for the body, mind and spirit care and empowering networks. My goal with this project is to empower other Mom’s to take charge of their personal health and the health of their families. Many dis-eases in the body can be avoided by taking better care of ourselves naturally; thus, through the sharing of herbal teas, oils, body and womb care products and information , Zuri*Baby will transform and help in the pre- labor and postpartum stages one mommy at a time!

At Zuri*Baby, our goal is to stand out in the grassroots marketplace as the premiere natural and holistic body care gift box for mommies and babies. The inspiration and vision behind Zuri*Baby came from my own personal gift-giving needs for myself and close friends who were expecting mothers. As the owner and founder of Zuri*Baby, using my daughter’s name, Zuri, which is of African Swahili origin and a translation for ‘beautiful’, only seemed fitting for launching beautiful products for beautiful babies that pamper and cater to the needs of mommy and baby. Zuri*Baby has the answer for moms- to-be looking for natural and holistic products for body and womb care pre and post labor and other natural care tips, networks and resources..

Self Love Reflection...

Do not become a prisoner to your image. Whatever you think you are suppose to be, stop. The reality is that you only get one life, and you have the power, potential, and capability to do it all. If you want to learn a new language, do it. If you want to play an instrument, learn one. What is most important (especially to my Kaye) is that you are the kind of person who does what you say you will do. If you are not serious about doing it, then do not say you will. More than anything else, LIVE, because you only get one go around.

His letter to her...

"An opportunity to express ‘love’ in it’s natural raw form…Passion without limit. Boundaries to which we push, cracks and crevices don’t go untouched…The eye contact is electric, words can’t begin to define the touch. An opportunity to say the darkest things that crept into your mind. The guitar blazes on, Your smiling and I have yet to touch your mind. But I will love, patient hugs, but we’ll get to that. Physical is minor, this mental intimacy, all natural, lay back and relax. Halal love, touches that delight all six senses. Brown skin that never ends, I play in your hair, maze within your eyes…"

Passion-Driven Life

Sometimes my emotions go into overdrive when I have come face to face with that which I am most passionate about. I am on the brink of a career/city move that will indefinitely change my life for the better, forever. I'm so excited and so filled with ecstatic anxiety, that I can hardly concentrate on wat lies before me in the meantime. A book deal, a business venture, new clients, preparing for my move, new love...and most new precious lil sweet baby girl! whew! I have plenty to keep myself busy until New Years; yet time seems to trickle by so slow when you are READY and WAITING....speaking from someone who is impatient!...hmmph.

so in moments like these, I just have to remind myself to take a step back, affirm and assure myself that all will be and IS well....and I am definitely in the FLOW:

What is Passion????
1. A powerful emotion,
a.such as love, joy, hatred, or anger.

2. Ardent love.
b. Strong sexual desire; lust.
c. The object of such love or desire.

3. Boundless enthusiasm
d. The object of such enthusiasm

What am I passionate about???
1. My Baby
2. My career
3. My LOVE....

Now how do I put my PASSIONS in PERSPECTIVE to where I am now???

Instant results

"If you’re willing to settle only for instant results, you’re seriously limiting what you can accomplish. Most things of great value take some time to achieve.

It is good to take action. It is far more powerful to take focused, sustained action.

The results you’re willing to wait for are the results that will last the longest. The time you invest in creative, productive, effective effort will always pay the greatest dividends.

If you’re always chasing instant results, life will be a constant struggle. By contrast, you can do the work of fifty, a hundred, a thousand people or more by spreading the effort over time.

Just imagine the incredible, lasting value you’ll be able to create. When your efforts build upon each other, there is no limit to how far you can go.

Persist in your work, and you will be abundantly rewarded. The results that come over time are far and away the most precious."

— Ralph Marston
