Happy Valentine’s Day, Quad Cities!
Sometime around October of last year, I was introduced to an anxiety management tool called EFT, which stands for “emotional freedom technique.”
Happy New Year! It is again, “The Roaring Twenties.” There is something so wonderful, especially after the labor-intensive, but joyful December holidays, about a day that celebrates surviving another year — For a fleeting second, entire, multiracial, religiously diversified time-zones are united as one in a few seconds of happiness and hope for the future as the clock strikes midnight.
What an amazing start to our holidays! With snow still on the ground and our courthouse looking as festive as can be with its beautiful Christmas lights, Prescott has certainly donned her best dress for the season!
For this week’s article, I actually “crowd-sourced” opinions on my personal Facebook account. In fact, the subject this week is so heated, so vehemently argued and so rooted in foundational values going back generations, that I hesitated for a minute, questioning if I should broach this highly volatile, controversial subject.
I’ve been paralyzed about what to write this week for two days now. I’ve gone back and forth between feeling I’ve been redundant in my articles about self-care, wondering if I should start writing more scientific articles about the effects of aluminum on the human body, and then wondering if anyone really cares?
It’s another brilliant week as we edge closer and closer to the holidays.
