This week’s warrior is All-American Rejects guitarist Nick Wheeler! Nick has partnered the band with an animal adoption site because he rescued the scrappy little pup seen in the picture below. As the unofficial fifth member of the band, Dexter tours with the band and hangs out during the meet and greets after concerts. I took two of my kids to see their show last week and we had the opportunity to meet the band and Dexter!! He is as cute and sweet as they say. Unfortunately he didn’t make it in to our photo, so I snagged this one from PeoplePets! (Hope that’s ok? :)) We presented Nick with a Totem Bulldog of course and he was truly touched that we had brought him a gift and that we recognized the importance of pet adoption. We do! So Nick, as our WARRIOR this week, we congratulate you for rescuing Dexter and shining the light on pet adoption while rocking across the globe. We hope you enjoy your Totem!

Our WARRIOR this week is Model Cassandra Bankson! Cassandra has worked in the modeling industry for years but it wasn’t until a touching and very personal YouTube video revealing her battles with acne and resulting bullying that Cassandra became globally known! Cassandra recently walked the catwalk during NY Fashion Week for Stacy Igel’s BoyMeetsGirl line and the two women became fast friends and created a confidence boosting contest! Watch the video to find out more information. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Xs_aCM2DQU

It’s all about opening up and sharing something you hope to conquer or a moment where you did conquer. At Totem Tamers we want everyone to find the confidence and calm to conquer even the simplest of obstacles because anything that gets in our way prevents us from living life to the fullest. Cassandra is an example of someone who didn’t let something so traumatic prevent her from living her dream! Well done WARRIOR Cassandra.

Grab your Totem and your confidence and get out in the world today!

Stay well

This is a message for all of you who suffer from anxiety related to doctors, nurses and other medical professionals. You must be a WARRIOR against your fear and not let it keep you from getting regular exams and check-ups. Take a Totem with you and practice your deep breathing, and stay well!

“I ain’t afraid of no Doctor!”

This picture of Bear comes to us all the way from Albuquerque, New Mexico! Thanks to R.B for sharing what is an inspirational photo. It reminds me that even when life is jabbing at you from every different direction, you can still look really cool and do your best to remain calm. Also, it helps if you can find a non-prickly place to sit! Remind yourself to take some deep breaths today and let your Totem absorb some of those jabs for you.

Stay well!

Bear keeps his cool in a prickly situation!

In continuing with our group theme, we are honoring yet another group this week. TEACHERS! Since last week was students heading back to school it only makes sense that we also acknowledge the teachers that will be with them day in and day out. Teachers get anxious too! Not only do they have to provide an education to students on a regular basis, but sometimes they have to counsel, and nurture, and mediate, and referee! Just to name a few. So if you are a teacher, thank you, and maybe a totem on your desk will help keep you calm throughout the day. Even better, give a totem, not a timeout!

An apple for the teacher.
