My Covid-19 Vaccine Excitement!

My personal preference is to do what I can to stay … to be healthy without medication.

Aging though, presents new challenges. What our bodies could once tolerate, no longer does the body give us a pass on. We have to make changes to our lifestyle, diet, managing stress, and managing aging.

After experiencing some scary health challenges in my thirties, I made some radical changes. I quit smoking, drinking coffee and most alcohol, plus left both a working and home environment that was adding to the problems versus helping.

A delayed child and teen hood fostered what seemed like a midlife crisis, but in reality was a period of deep discovery and healing. And since there was much to heal from, the journey was long, though it became longer as a result of putting my life and dreams on hold in 2011 when I moved back to be there for our dad until his passing in 2015. My health took another severe hit then that is only now finally being resolved as I get back on track with a healthy diet, a return to my yoga/pilates practice, and a new psychological/spiritual way to manage the stress of current financial challenges due to the debt I incurred to be with my dad, living accommodations, and lack of a vehicle in a community without public transportation.

Maybe it is because I have previously volunteered for clinical Phase II trials in Toronto that tested medications either on products already on the market or a competitive new product that getting the vaccine does not bother me. What bothers me more is having to take medication on a regular basis because after reading about all the potential side effects from available products already on the market, I prefer to keep changing my choices as my body changes with the aging process.

So, after booking my COVID-19 vaccine for the first week of May and late August I am excited to be doing my part to help solve the pandemic problem, to not infect anyone, and to free me from having to endure a lot of other medication and procedures were I to be become ill with the virus and its complications.

I also feel freed from having to stay in my kitchenless, bathtubless studio living space once the means arrives for me to move on … hopefully much sooner than later. May would be awesome, but patience is a new friend of mine.

And since I now have faith in God to take care of me, as I realize He always has, fear of science and a vaccine, is nonexistent … because all good things come from God and anything not from Him, He protects me from, which is a very comforting, uplifting way to live no matter what comes … because I know where I am going when all is said and done. I love and am greatly relieved to be living this way than the fearful life I have lived most of my life.

So, here’s hoping my experiences, knowledge, and words get you excited too! If yes, let’s get vaccinated together and then we will all be able to get back together and back to work much sooner than much later.

Take care. Be Safe. Protect yourself and others … because everyone matters.

If We Need to Control Others to Feel Okay About Ourselves, It Will Never Work

Six million people murdered because of one person’s need to control in order to feel valued … respected … and sadly to try and feel superior, which, in reality no person is … because we are all human and flawed, though still beautiful and capable of wondrous things.

https://www.timesnownews.com/mirror-now/in-focus/article/international-holocaust-remembrance-day-2021-seven-facts-about-jewish-holocaust-during-ww-ii-in-europe/712247

The only way the deep void that drives us to control others gets filled is from doing the personal work that examines why we have such a deep void and making the changes we need to make to feel whole, fulfilled, respected, and loved. Once we do, no one can take that from us and we certainly don’t need to stand on anyone to make us feel that we are more … or less valuable than anyone else.

Just because someone is financially impoverished does not mean they are stupid. Just because someone is financially abundant does not mean they are smart.

And just because someone is intellectually intelligent does not mean they are emotionally intelligent.

Much to consider about those we choose to follow.

Lamentations and Condolences Are Not Enough

If we want a better, safer world to live in, for us and for the next generations, we must get over our politics, our religion, our race, our sex, and anything else that divides us to the point we become coldhearted about anyone or anything we don’t approve of or don’t like. Consciously choosing to see past our prejudices means choosing to recognize every life as valuable and to get on with making the changes so everyone knows by experience they are valued too.

“Millions are hounded for debt they don’t owe. One victim fought back with a vengeance.”

“The more Therrien learned, the more disgusted he grew with everyone involved.”

He isn’t the only one. What I have gone through as a result of going into debt so I could be available to Dad during the last years of his difficult life (2013 to 2015) continues to stun me. Even though I wrote creditors repeatedly and told them I would repay the debts when I could rather than file for bankruptcy, the verbal abuse and threats tormented, worried, and even scared me, even wasting cell phone time I could not afford. And even though I now consistently payback creditors each month, until recently I was still receiving abuse and threatening calls, but now as someone who finally believes God is in control in my life, I trust him to take care of those who seek to do me harm.

Sadly, Therrien reveals he still receives calls for debts he never even incurred!
