What To Do If You Have the Mandate and Lockdown Blues

Special Note:  If you start having thoughts of wanting to die or harm yourself, seek professional help immediately, or let a loved one know. Or call 1-800-273-8255 to reach the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, which provides 24/7, free, and confidential support.

When the COVID-19 Pandemic first appeared in early 2020, Jack and I were as startled as everyone by the strict restrictions of just going to the grocery store to buy toilet paper and food. After a few weeks, we both agreed “NO MORE.”

We moved to the country, lowered our living expenses (cut them over half), started an organic garden and became far more self sufficient (energy, water, food backups and redundancies). In a nutshell, we simplified.

While many people we knew were rushing to get experimental vaccines, buying hoards of masks, staying home and complying with lockdowns, we took the opposite approach.

We went on several roadtrips (Washington DC, Las Vegas, Colorado Springs, Phoenix, Graceland in Memphis, Pigeon Forge in the Smoky Mountains, Andy Griffith Museum in North Carolina, Ark Encounter in Kentucky and other crowded places) visiting 20 states.

We were a bit surprised to see both ends of the spectrum:

1. People wearing masks, gloves, headgear and wrapped in extra clothing just to walk outside to their mailbox.

2. Or like us, RVers, bikers, campers, and travelers enjoying America’s freedoms indoors and outside. We only wore masks per local establishment restrictions, but even then, like other patriots, it was minimal. We attended theater plays, saw movies, enjoyed concerts, explored museums and road amusement park rides.

Everyone experiences ups and downs, but the sadness we’ve been seeing from some people is like weather. It tends to come and go, and it can lift quickly if something positive happens. We made sure to focus on positiveness. We turned off the TV and especially mainstream media of any kind (radio, newspapers, magazine’s, etc.)

Those who took similar approaches seem to snap out of it—sort of like a rain cloud moved aside by the sun.

When It’s More Than Normal Sadness

But some people practically bolted themselves indoors and continuously watched the propaganda and news. Their sadness wasn’t a temporary occurance like a rainshower. It is full blown depression, like a season.

Depression moves in and stays for a while, most of the day, every day, for weeks at a time. It can affect your mood, your physical health, and the way you perceive just about everything. Rather than an emotional state, depression is a health condition.

Consider simplifying your life, finding alternative news sources (like CleverJourneys.Com), and improving your well being. Here are some suggestions:

1. Get moving. Any form of regular exercise boosts mood and energy. It’s hard to get moving when you’re feeling down, so start with small steps and build from there. Standing, stretching, or taking a quick walk around your house or neighborhood is better than being boarded up. And guess what? You don’t need to wear a mask! As a registered nurse of 40 years, I’m not about to wear a mask so frivolously. Just move!!!

2. Try meditating. Research has shown that medication can improve depression symptoms, but research shows you can equate the benefits of 30 minutes of meditation to the effects of one antidepressant pill. Of course, if your doctor has prescribed medication, you should continue to take it as instructed—but you can add meditation to your routine. There are plenty of apps that can help you get started, including Headspace, Calm, and The Mindfulness App. Or simply just go walk!

3. Go outside. Spending time in nature can decrease feelings of depression. It also exposes you to sunlight, which can help your body produce vitamin D. Low levels of the nutrient have been linked to depression, but soaking up even 15 minutes of sun per day can lift your spirits in the present and over the long term.

4. Foster close relationships. Nurturing your existing relationships with friends and family is one of the best things you can do for your health. But it’s also never too late to forge new bonds. How? Sign up for a book club, volunteer to lend a hand at your local community center or place of worship, take a group exercise class, or simply invite a neighbor to meet for a cup of coffee. As feelings of connection increase, depression often decreases.

5. Read. Simply pick up a book and read it. I say book, instead of reading on a computer or phone, for the sake of your eyes. Each day, I have a ritual of reading Bible devotionals and a few chapters in a novel. Library cards are a good thing. It is positive and good for the spirit.

6. Practice gratitude. Making daily lists of what you’re grateful for has been found to help lift mood. Even if you’re not able to write everything down, simply thinking about it or expressing gratitude to others can help boost happiness.

Domestic Violence: 20 People Per Minute Abused

Each October, the United States observes National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

There is an epidemic in the nation, according to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence.

• On average, nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States. During one year, this equates to more than 10 million women and men.

• 1 in 4 women and 1 in 9 men experience severe intimate partner physical violence, intimate partner-contact sexual violence and/or intimate partner stalking.

• 1 in 7 women and 1 in 25 men have been injured by an intimate partner.

• 1 in 10 women has been raped by an intimate partner.

Intimate partner violence is not always easy to recognize, because it is often about controlling someone’s mind and emotions as much as hurting their body. The signs may not be as obvious as a bruise, but it’s important to be aware of what some of the indicators might be. Even for those living in an abusive relationship, it can be difficult to recognize that what they are experiencing is abuse. Some common warning signs of abuse may include:

• Jealousy.

• Unpredictability (loving one minute and mean the next).

• Cruelty to animals.

• Verbal abuse.

• Extremely controlling behavior.

• Antiquated beliefs about roles of women and men in relationships.

• Forced sex or disregard of their partner’s unwillingness to have sex or to engage in certain sex acts.

• Blaming the victim for anything bad that happens, including the abuse.

• Sabotage or obstruction of the victim’s ability to work or attend school.

• Controlling all finances.

• Controlling what victim wears and how they act.

• Embarrassment or humiliation of the victim in front of others.

Is COVID & a ‘Toxic Medical System’ the Reason Doctor Suicides are Soaring?

When Obamacare was signed into law, I interviewed many physicians and medical association representatives for news reports. I was startled by the number of doctors who were angry and depressed about it. Suicides among physicans soared afterwards. Doctors began leaving the profession in record numbers.

A decade later (and now with the weight of the pandemic on their shoulders), about 400 physicians die by suicide each year. Hundreds more harbor serious thoughts of suicide. The suicide completion rate among doctors is 44% higher than the expected population; female physicians have a higher suicide completion rate than male doctors.

Late last week, one physician, a member of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS), shared the federal guidelines enacted in 2020 for how the medical industry must report COVID deaths:

COVID-19 should be reported on the death certificate for all decedents where the disease caused or is assumed to have caused or contributed to the death.”

“Assume?” my doctor friend asked. I could hear his voice crack. “Caused or contributed to the death? This has been utilized to blow up the death counts for COVID-19. They want everyone to stack the deck.”

“Physicians don’t like to admit it, but there is an ever growing disillusionment with the unethical environment in the medical industry,” he said. “It’s leading to more people just giving up. I mean leaving practice, checking out and taking their own lives. It wasn’t meant as a joke, but when we learned that a colleague–a good doctor–hung himself, one of my peers angrily blurted out matter-of-factly, “he died of COVID too, huh?”

Federal Guidelines

Minnesota State Senator Dr. Scott Jensen believes new evidence shows a need for an audit of COVID deaths. A year ago, he criticized the Minnesota Department of Health regarding how the state was using federal guidelines on recording coronavirus deaths.

“I sort of got myself in hot water way back in April when I made the comment that I was, as a physician, being encouraged to do death certificates differently with COVID-19 than with other disease entities,” Jensen said.

“For 17 years, the CDC document that guides us as physicians to do death certificates has stood, but (in 2020) we were told, through the Department of Health and the CDC, that the rules were changing if COVID-19 was involved.”

“If it’s COVID-19, we’re told now it doesn’t matter if it was actually the diagnosis that caused death. If someone had it, they died of it,” he said.

Recently Jensen, along with another State Representative Mary Franson, raised awareness after reviewing thousands of death certificates in the state. They found that 40% DID NOT have COVID-19 as the underlying cause of death.

“I have other examples where COVID isn’t the underlying cause of death, where we have a fall,” Franson exposed. “Another example is we have a freshwater drowning. We have dementia. We have a stroke and multiorgan failure.”

She said that in one case, a person who was ejected from a car was “counted as a COVID death” because the virus was in his system.

Franson said she and a team reviewed 2,800 “death certificate data points” and found that about 800 of them did not have the virus as the underlying cause of death.

Tennessee

The “deck stacking” isn’t limited to Minnesota. A family in Tennessee was left furious after a loved one’s death certificate listed COVID-19 as the cause of death despite the patient having tested negative for the virus on three separate occasions leading up to his death.

“Oh, it was a slap in the face,” said Deborah Hughey after losing her father, Hal Short. “I felt like it was a slap in the face to our family, a couple of days before my dad died, we knew he was dying, me and my mom had a conversation that he had these COVID tests, and they were all negative, and at that point she said, ‘If I get his death certificate and it says COVID-19 was his cause of death I’m going to be furious.'”

“We weren’t in the COVID unit, never even suggested, on the last day, the day that he dies all of us got to go in there without a mask, and other members of extended family, got to say goodbye,” said Dean Short, Hal Short’s wife.

TriStar Centennial Medical Center in Nashville later apologized and blamed it on a “clerical error.”

Colorado

In Colorado, the coroner’s office in Montezuma County, corrected the state’s claim that a Coloradan died in the town of Cortez due to the coronavirus.

Montezuma County Coroner George Deavers said that while the unidentified person did test positive for the coronavirus, the cause of death was alcohol poisoning, according to the Durango Herald.

Deavers says an investigation he and a pathologist conducted showed the person’s blood alcohol content (BAC) was 0.55, seven times higher than the legal driving limit, and determined ethanol toxicity was the cause of death. A BAC of 0.3 is typically considered lethal.

“COVID was not listed on the death certificate as the cause of death. I disagree with the state for listing it as a COVID death and will be discussing it with them this week,” Deavers said.

Physican Suicides Increasing

Dr. Pamela Wible, a family physician in Eugene, Oregon, is a sought after speaker, writer and researcher on physician suicides. She keeps a register of over 1200 doctor suicides.

“Physician suicide is a public health crisis,” she said. “More than one million Americans lose their doctors to suicide each year—just in the United States.”

“Several of these suicides on my registry are related to the toxic medical system and are what I call ‘statement suicides.’ The victims are making a statement about an unethical medical system by way of their suicides. They seem to believe that finally someone will pay attention and do something to stop the abuse and criminal activity that they’ve witnessed.”

In her speeches, Dr. Wible discusses actual cases. One is Dr. James Evan Astin, who she describes as a “bright, caring, compassionate second-year internal medicine resident. Why did he die? He first felt suicidal in medical school. He made that clear in his suicide note. He was disillusioned with for-profit medicine, discontent as a factory worker…He wrote in a suicide note, ‘I just wanted to be a scientist who helped people and that is not at all what I do.’ He died due to misery in medicine feeling like he was in the wrong career—a career that had been degraded in such a way that he could no longer actually help patients. He was unwilling to participate any longer and could see no other way out.”

In another case, Wible explains the cause of another physician’s death. It was the “same sort of thing as some previous victims. Disillusionment and despair with medicine. He wanted to do geriatrics and churning elderly patients through seven-minute visits while maximizing billing codes was not the future he wanted for himself…He would have been a great geriatrician, but not when trained to be a factory worker. His mom claims he died of a broken heart and soul. I happen to concur. He died due to assembly-line medicine.”

Getting Rid of Negative Thoughts

The nicest guy I know, Michael Sheffield, strapped his belt with mine around a flag pole and our legs to keep from sliding off a ship during an unexpected storm. To say we were worried is an understatement. We prayed and survived.

Over 30 years later, it is reassuring that research from Clinical Psychology & Psychotherapy shows that about 85% of the things we worry about result in positive or fair conclusions.

But some people don’t seem to be able to rid the torment of excessive worry.

Almost 80% of the time, when there is a negative outcome, the researched revealed that worriers handle the situation better than they thought they would.

Like a well-worn path in a meadow, worry will eventually erode any refreshing and hopeful approach you may have once experienced.   

Here are two powerful techniques I have used to keep my pathways open to more positive thoughts and opportunities:

Reframe the Scenery

For years I kept a gift on my office wall that kept me inspired and smiling during rough times. It was a cartoon plaque that read “If you are up the creek without a paddle, just enjoy the scenery.”  

By quickly reframing my thoughts about the situation or location I find myself in, automatically a path of opportunity (rest, read a book, listen to music, walk, people watch, or surf the net on my phone) opens.

It’s a good window of time to call a friend, get other work done, or be creative. Laugh and enjoy the adventure of another exciting trail—away from the deepening rut of worry. 

Hypnotize Yourself

On what was supposed to be a few hours on a dining and gambling ship with a couple of friends in the Gulf of Mexico in June 1990, we found ourselves in an extremely dangerous storm.  

The situation worsened as some of the crew members rebelled against the ship’s captain and staff after the vessel’s power and generator failed. Passengers were seriously injured as the ship was tossed about throughout the night. Some of us tied our legs together with our belts to a common pole on the top deck to remain secure.

As people around me where crying and screaming, I put myself in a trance. Thank goodness for a good college mentor and psychology professor of my youth, I refocused my mind by visualizing myself being in my grandparent’s house when I was a kid.

I walked through the front door and pictured the details of each room. By concentrating on the sounds, smells, textures (of their hardwood floor, especially) I could see the brand names of the food (Pet Milk, Hi-C Orange Juice, Nabisco) in the refrigerator and on the cabinet shelves.

I could even envision picking out a certain type of glass to get a drink of water as I looked at their back yard through the kitchen window. 

The kitchen table had Sears and Montgomery Ward catalogues I could turn the pages of and revere their offerings.

When you find yourself digging into a hole of worry that you think you can’t get out of, throw down the shovel and start visualizing about something else.

The prime goal is to be disciplined about it each time a negative or worrisome thought starts creeping in.

When something’s bothering you, you know that getting your mind off of it is easier said than done. In fact, research shows that when people are instructed not to think about a specific topic, it makes it even harder to get that topic out of their minds.

But rehashing negative thoughts over and over in your head, also known as rumination, can be unpleasant and counterproductive—and in some cases, it can even lead to chronic depression.

“It’s like a needle in a groove,” says Guy Winch, PhD psychologist and author of Emotional First Aid: Practical Strategies for Treating Failure, Rejection, Guilt and Other Everday Psychological Injuries.

“As the groove gets deeper and deeper, the needle has a harder time getting out of the groove.”

What’s more, rumination can actually make you more angry or upset than you were originally, because the issue becomes magnified in your mind.

Use Distraction Tricks

One distraction trick is to visualize yourself in the grocery store. Try to picture all of the items on one shelf in the store, and the order that you see them in.

Don’t do a lot of food shopping? Think about something else that requires concentration: the order of books on your bookshelf, or the order of songs in an album or playlist you like to listen to, for example. You don’t have to do it for long—maybe 30 seconds or a minute, but the key is to be disciplined about it and do it each time that negative thought comes back—even if that means doing it 20 times an hour.

It may seem temporary, but if you reinforce these patterns enough, it can improve your mood and your decision making abilities. You can actually train your brain to go in a different direction when these thoughts come up.

Reframing

If your default to ruminate is very strong, distracting yourself isn’t going to be easy. So before you try, it may be necessary to reframe or reappraise the situation in your head.

If you get stuck in the airport for hours because of a cancelled flight, for example, don’t think of what you’re missing out on. Instead, see it as a chance to get work done, or to call your parents or an old friend.

Once you’ve successfully reframed your situation, it may be easier to distract yourself with a visualization exercise like a book, internet surfing, a crossword puzzle, or a quick stroll.

Keep Positive Company

If you can’t get troublesome feelings out of your mind, it may have something to do with your social circle. In one study, Notre Dame researchers found that it’s common for college students to pick up rumination-like behaviors from their roommates. Because rumination often involves worrying and thinking aloud, it’s a habit that can be easily mirrored by other people, the researchers say. Avoid perpetually negative people when you can, or at least be aware of what habits might be rubbing off on you.

Physically Throw Them Away

It may sound crazy, but clearing your head of a nagging thought could be as easy as writing it down on a piece of paper—and tossing it in the trash, according to an Ohio State University study. People who wrote down negative things about their bodies and then threw them away had a more positive self image a few minutes later, compared to those who kept the papers with them.

“However you tag your thoughts—as trash or as worthy of protection—seems to make a difference in how you use those thoughts,” says study co-author and psychology professor Richard Petty, PhD.

Have a Cup of Tea

Negative thoughts can occur for many different reasons—but if yours are focused on feeling lonely, you may gain some comfort by warming up, literally. Yale researchers discovered that people recalled fewer negative feelings about a past lonely experience when they were holding a hot pack. (They also found that lonely people tend to take longer hot showers.)

Substituting physical warmth for emotional warmth can be a quick fix, the researchers say—just don’t let it take the place of real human interaction in the long run.

– Psalm 121:1-2 NIV

My Longtime Friend Died After Getting 2nd COVID Vaccine Shot

This is harsh, but I’m extremely mad. A friend (fellow Elvis fan) that I’ve known over 40 years died 6 days after taking her 2nd COVID-19 vaccine shot.

When I see dear ones post pictures and overjoyed about having these unproven and experimental vaccines injected into their bodies, I immediately think about Jews lining up to get into boxcarts to the Nazi camps to take “showers” when they were really going into gas chambers.

My friend was healthy. She was only 58 years old and so excited to share her accomplishment of getting her 2nd shot. I shook my head. Why? So you won’t have a less than 1% chance of dying (if for some reason you get it?). That defies logic.

Not only am I sad, but feel guilt that I didn’t do enough to warn her. She read my articles but it wasn’t enough. She’s gone. Forever. Needlessly.

Yesterday a smart man who worked for me at HEB for many years said after reading more about the dangers (including my articles) he and his wife cancelled their vaccine appointments. I was overjoyed. That makes 12 people who told me they are not taking it after reading the articles and some have known friends and family who died after taking them. No not all were elderly.

Quit buying into the media propaganda. The long terms effects of these shots are not likely to be good…and for what? The CDC doesn’t even know if they will “protect” for even a year and they are already saying a 3rd or 4th or annual vaccination will be required.

It messes with your immune system. It puts out proteins that your cells react to. It’s not really a vaccine because it contains nothing from the virus itself. How can you make antibodies against something that is not there.

This hasn’t been out there long enough to know the very potential long term effects, but we are just seeing the numbers of people dying soon after these shots.
No worries, for you skeptics. Big Pharma are already planning on $elling billion$ more for all the ailments you will likely suffer because of these vaccines.

I suppose you believed the fake news Russian Hoax, dossier, Kauvenaugh hearings, impeachment hearing evidence and no voter fraud in swing state cities too.

Again I’m sorry if this offends you, but hearing of these needless deaths is far more offensive, even more so than people bragging and celebrating their shots.

It’s nothing to brag about.

And then, I read this:

How Many Secrets You Keep May Surprise Most

by Jack Dennis

Do you want to know a secret?

No one knows that…

A scientific study of 13,000 real life secrets found the average person has 13 secrets.

Most have been keeping quiet about them for at least 15 years. It’s human nature to keep secrets and tell little white lies, but until recently most people didn’t know that most people have as least one major secret they don’t want anyone to find out about. In fact, the average person has five of which they’ve never told another person.

When alone, people spend a great deal of mental energy just thinking about their secrets, according to Michael Slepian, a professor at Columbia Business School.

“People have this curious way of talking about secrets as laying them down or unburdening them,” said  Michael Slepian, the lead researcher from the management group.  “We found that when people were thinking about their secrets, they actually acted as if they were burdened by physical weight. It seems to have this powerful effect even when they’re not hiding a secret in the moment.”

We all have secrets.

The researchers were able to summarize the 13,000 secrets into common categories that involved things like drug use, harming someone, telling a lie, theft, violating someone’s trust, sexual infidelity, a secret hobby, and sexual orientation..

Among their findings:

60% chance a secret involves a lie or financial impropriety.

47% of secrets involves a violation of trust.

33% chance that it involves a theft, a hidden relationship, or discontent at work.

A separate UK study said at least 60 percent of Brits have a secret they dread friends or family finding out about. Secrets are wide ranging and include affairs, secret children, unknown marriages, shoplifting, getting caught drinking while driving, bed wetting, getting someone fired, debt, sexual turn-ons and phobias they’ve never shared.

Only 26 percent of those surveyed believed their partner would support them still if they did discover the secret.

Some of the most common secrets include:

  1. Having an affair
  2. An embarrassing incident
  3. Internet history
  4. Debt
  5. Sexual turn-ons
  6. Family history
  7. Phobia
  8. Purchases
  9. You smoke/used to smoke
  10. Real-life crushes
  11. Addiction
  12. You take drugs/used to take drugs
  13. Bank/credit card statements
  14. Age
  15. A criminal past
  16. Illness or condition
  17. Previous marriage(s)
  18. Pretending to like something/someone you loath
  19. Sexual orientation
  20. Tattoo
  21. Secret children
  22. Sexually transmitted disease
  23. Sexting/Snapchat
  24. Education/exam grades
  25. Pretending to be good at something

Deaths, Serious Reactions After Covid Vaccines Are Far More Than Media is Reporting, Official Reports Show

According to VAERS reports submitted to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the number of people who have died after receiving the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines is over 600. From Dec. 14, 2020 through Jan. 29, 2021 over 500 died.

VAERS is the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, a CDC program that collects information regarding adverse events that occur after a person receives a vaccine.

There were over 40,000 “events” or injuries reported in the first 30 days. By February 5, 2021, VAERS reports showed over 12,000 people had at least one adverse reaction to either the Pfizer or Moderna coronavirus vaccine.

Most Americans do not realize that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has classified both vaccines as experimental and has only granted them emergency use authorizations, not full licenses.

Of the reported cases, over 4,400 were classified as “not serious,” but  resulted in hospitalizations. Over 600 were “life-threatening,” over 300 resulted in a permanent disability and over 600 died.

Some of the reported life-threatening events included over 200 cases of Bell’s palsy-type symptoms – including facial asymmetry – and at least 25 miscarriages.

Fifty-three percent of the those who died were male, 43 percent were female and the remaining four percent of reported deaths did not include the gender of the deceased.

The average age of the fatalities was 77 and the youngest reported death was of a 23-year-old.

The Pfizer vaccine accounted for 59 percent of the reported deaths while the remaining 41 percent of people who died took the Moderna vaccine.

The states where the most deaths came from are California, Ohio, and New York. Including Kentucky and Florida, these five states accounted for almost 1/3rd of all the reported coronavirus vaccine fatalities.

While the VAERS database has recorded 600 deaths, according to the Department of Health and Human Services the actual number of people who have experienced adverse events due to taking the coronavirus vaccines is likely significantly higher.

VAERS is a “passive surveillance system,” that relies on people to submit reports to their database.

“It’s not that reliable of a system,” said retired RN, Loralyn Dennis, who has over 15 years of vaccine experience. “Healthcare providers are hesitant to report to VAERS because it could place them in bad light with Big Pharma. Many times parents or patients will call their providers to report problems and expect them to turn it in to VAERS. Most reliable sources indicate all that is sent in is maybe 5% of the total.”

One news outlet, Waking Times also noted that historically, less than one percent of adverse events were reported to VAERS.

5 Things to Know About Physician Burn Out Now

Forty-two percent of physicians reported feeling burned out last year, according to Medscape’s 2021 Physician Burnout Report published Jan. 25. 

For the report, Medscape surveyed 12,339 physicians in more than 29 specialties from Aug. 30 to Nov. 5, 2020.

Five report findings:

1. Sixty-nine percent of physicians said they were somewhat or very happy in 2020 before the pandemic started. This figure fell to 49 percent during the pandemic. 

2. While female physicians have historically reported higher rates of burnout than their male peers, this gap grew in 2020. Fifty-one percent of women said they were burned out, compared to 36 percent of men.

3. Critical care physicians had the highest rates of burnout among all specialties, at 51 percent. In 2019, urologists reported the highest burnout rates.

4. Seventy-nine percent of physicians said their burnout began before the COVID-19 pandemic.

5. The three most common contributing factors to burnout that physicians cited were too many bureaucratic tasks (58 percent); spending too many hours at work (37 percent); and lack of response from leaders or colleagues (37 percent). 

We Shook It Off: A Lesson From Mr. Beefy

On Inauguration Day it had been raining and misting here for a while.

Our dog, Mr. Beefy, (a direct descendant–the firstborn–of Fortunado El Conquistador AKA “Nato” of Phoenix, Arizona) needed to go outside, but was hesitant, so I walked with him.

Mr. Beefy enjoys the rain from inside.

The Beef is quite the sniffer. Knowing his process can take a while, I caught up on some fellow bloggers articles. (We tend to support each other that way).

I noticed a trend. Many in my physical and internet communities were experiencing depression and dread over the inauguration and prospects of our country. There was anger because of the stolen election and worry about the outcomes ahead.

One of my favorite blogs is Chateau Cherie, from a prolific writer who exposes “Bullies and Liberating Targets to Make the World a Safer Place for All.”

I won’t kid you,” wrote Cherie White. “These last three months have been an uphill battle and it seems like I and so many others have been knocked down repeatedly lately. You probably have too. This morning, I almost threw my hands up and quit. I got to the point where it was easier not to even care. I thought, “Screw it! Whatever happens, happens! I don’t care anymore!

I sat down with protective cover on the porch steps of our shed while Mr. Beefy sniffed around the leaves and wet terrain for the perfect spot to suit his need.

As he did his business, his body language looked miserable and he hunkered down in the rain.


After he finished, he walked slowly over to me under the shed. I thought “Mr. Beefy feels like we all do: depressed.”

Suddenly, with all the might he could muster, he SHOOK THE WET OFF.  Of course, much of it splashed on me.

Mr. Beefy’s shake was similar to this.

He was so relieved and looked royally proud. I laughed and petted him for about a minute or so. A sudden break in the rain allowed us to safely walk back to the house.

I thanked God for the moment. As Beefy just did, I SHOOK IT OFF and was determined to have a better day.

The thing is, a series of events occurred (burnt hand taking a 23.19 lb. turkey out of oven, spilled turkey juice and gel over stove, oven and floor, later hurt my shoulder, etc.) that challenged my spirit.

Guess what?

I SHOOK IT OFF.

I won. My spirit is good. 

Joshua 1:9 (NIV) “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
