A Dollar to Health & Happiness

Happiness is being the Boss

Empty Pockets and Self Employed Happiness

The psychological benefits of work are often more important to self-employed people than the financial rewards. This is because they place a higher value on feeling useful and productive. Moreover, they believe that being their own boss gives them more control over their work. This means that they can be more creative and can work more effectively.

Stress

A recent survey suggests that the self-employed are less likely to be happy. However, it does not answer the question of why they feel such disproportionate stress. The cost of health insurance may play a role. Another factor may be that self-employed people do not have the same benefits as employees.

Life satisfaction

The idea that being self-employed and having an empty pocket can boost life satisfaction isn’t new. In fact, it’s been around since the Marshall Plan. The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) has developed an index to measure the overall quality of life. It includes eleven different criteria for measuring life satisfaction. According to the OECD, the U.S. ranks 17th out of 36 countries.

According to a new study, self-employment and happiness increase life satisfaction. This association may be due to the fact that self-employed people tend to have lower levels of education and income, and they’re also more likely to live in areas with high unemployment rates. Additionally, many self-employed individuals to opt into entrepreneurship by accident, rather than voluntarily choosing it. Despite these differences, prior studies have indicated that entrepreneurship is associated with higher life satisfaction.

As life has enough stress, being flexible can help reduce stressors. A new way after COVID-19 has more individuals taking on self-employment. The opportunity can be mental and physically rewarding for your health. It’s important to understand that money can be made, health can’t always wait. Changes can be challenging, with happiness the transition can be favorable. A Dollar to Health & happiness.

Until our beautiful minds meet again, be safe out there. Many blessings and much love. Remember Everyday Minds Matter-Della 💞🦋

👀 Modern Living 2022

Modern Living

Ever wake up and just look out into the world? A world that is so beautiful in many ways. Yet unpredictable in the most common ways. As I try to maneuver through the daily routine, somethings I often question. To see people prosper, build the dream home and create a family is great. The purpose to why we are here to live. Live the American dream, right? That American dream is to be financially stable to buy the essentials to survive. However the essentials have become luxary, purchases that are beyond budgets. Budgets that one doesn’t see the long-term reality. Buy now, pay later sense to the psychological not in hand effect. Transactions aren’t cash visuals, that value out of pocket expense. Credit is an evil tactic – credit that is unlimited- creating – Debit. A vision that is just sign here – here’s keys to your home or new car.

At one time in history – Money had a visual, physical in hand and appreciation value. The employment wages or income a written paper check stub -presented. Technology – electronic deposits and transaction devalued the US dollar. That value become psychological to the real value of money. A blind pleasure to dophine pleasure zone responsible for creating feelings of pleasure. The pleasure of feeling good to have a new car, dopamine pleasures block the reality of debit. A motive to provide a selflish action to behavior – short lived for the moment. All pleasure is temporary, dopamine released then returns to pre-stabalized level. Rewarding nature where feel good – wanting more and more. High levels cravings to pleasure experiences that trigger addiction to pleasure – high dopamine experience unconsciously felt.

Is dopamine responsible to the modern day dream?

The modern houses built are not the average houses in a financial view. These are much more elegant, new style that is incredibly marvelous. As inflation has soared the nation economically the supplies aren’t cheap. The housing market is booming- clearly thats understandable. Humans are reproducing rapidly – clearly understand that. Population has run out farmers – every space of land is being purchased. Subdivisions are the new extension to its own small community. Subdivisions of miles of streets that are hidden to a new world. These houses aren’t cheap in any possible way. The new styles are designed with class of country and modern relaxed comfort. With all this comfort comes a mortgage payment. That leaves the one question: How do people afford these homes?

Did I miss the memo of the best paying jobs? Or did someone hit the lottery and share with a large portion of individuals ready to built a new home? I know theres doctors, lawyers, engineers, great paying careers in the world. But theres not that many for the population of homes being built. Leaving the wonder to, is the world in debt? Has credit created a in debt population, that struggles financially more than realized? Has the world been built on a financial crisis of credit card debit and loans? A financial crisis – known as debt?

A prime stigma of “keeping up with the Jones”. Building beyond financial means and be sorry later? I am not judging the lifestyle this is opinion by observation. Its common to fall into debt, as the economy struggles. But what will happen in the future? If another shutdown took place, would the banks then default payments? Or am I just over looking the inflation of the world and missing something simple?

One more curiousity hard to understand the wages paid. The perfect example: rich get richer, the poor get poorer. So that myth, estimate to show reality to the financial observation. If the average wage persay $20 hourly. A 40 hour week that’s a $800 gross before deductions with a low figure of taxes $200. Net pay would be $600.

Now with 4 weeks in a month $2400 a month income. This is one income in the household, and most couples both are employed. So with a good thought that both members of the household make the same amount hourly. To double that $2400 would be $4800 monthly. This is for average educated or skilled household. Now think about this $4800 may sound like alot of money. But you figure the living expenses. Car payment, mortgage, insurance, children, food, gas, all the expenses- reality- is $4800 really explaining Housing market? Does that makes sense to the financial aspect taking place? Or does a sense of reality to the observation – a world of financial debt lack long term unpredictions? Is debt established and maxed to the limits for modern living? Has the US dollar been effected by psychological behavior due to technology?

The psychological effect is the no money in hand.. No vision of the money value or sense of actual dollar amount. The intention of technology is paper, written or electronic signature that out lives the contract itself. At one point the signature is transfered to an electronic data storage device. Which added to a credit file. The idea pretty impressive to payment history, that’s an invisible assest to ones finances. Years to build good credit that can be challenged at times.

In the days ahead, a good look around👀. Just coming out of a long world changing pandemic. Maybe we have realized how to prepare for the future. Have we been challenged over the past couple years, that has taught us to plan ahead? In all my research and attempts to view the world “As Modern Living”. I can only see that people are building a stable home. A stability that offers flexible options. Options through ups and downs to ride during the inflation days. However, with larger families, having a large home can be ideal. Thinking ahead if times got tough, living with family or friends could be an option. One thing for sure, as we populate rapidly. At some piont land will be extinct. In all creation, dirt can be moved but it can not be created. When land is no longer available, well it becomes discontinued for good. No longer available or restockable. Think about that last sentence. Next time your out taking a good look around. A Modern Living 2022

Until our beautiful minds meet again, Be safe out there. Much love and blessings. Remember Everyday Minds Matter – Della 🦋

🍎Connecting to Delivery

Good Food

The world might be a little unpredictable. Okay, it is very unpredictable in all aspects of employment, finances, stocks, automobile, housing, etc,. One thing as humans to survive we need food. It may not be available at times due to situations or hardship. Survival depends on some sort of food source. We must eat. In this lifetime, its truly amazing that eating can become habit forming. And when I say habit forming, good food can change our outlook towards eating. Addictive and craved are indication of an addiction to food.

Eating is just part of being human. Some may over eat out of bordem or stress. A disorder or life changing events can alter our relationship with food. In some cases, people may not enjoy the comfort of food. While others may use food as a comfort mechanism. Either way food addiction can cause mental anguish. Mental stress and eating disorders are quilt triggered addictions. Feeling pleasure while eating yet quilt struck after endulging.

Regardless of one’s situation food is a must. At this time in our new world after covid, social distancing has become a new normal. Food delivery either groceries or from restaurants is a big deal. I personally work for both Uber Eats and Instacart loving the opportunity. The rewards of happy people can’t explain the advantages of delivery. People are very grateful as it saves them time and money. Many shirt conversations people are happy to give a nice tip any day. Verses the time spent in a struggle grocery store. As for my experience, I am a communicator while shopping or picking up at a restuarant.

When an item is not available, I take time to make the next available item known for replacement. Or whatever needed to help the customer get close to substitute if all possible. Personally having a time frame for Instacart does ruffle my feathers at times. But I just learned to ignore the time frame. It really blows my mind that a company will out a time limit in an order or batch that has 2 orders or more. Why? Stores are at a high of shortages, improvements and high demand of items. Its not easy as it may sound to shop for 50 items in less than 30 minutes. Finding product for a vegan or specialty items within diet can be confusing and complicated..

Recently I had the experience of finding vegan items. Honestly I was lost, no clue. Without the experience I would not have the opportunity to encourage understanding and knowledge for the next experience. You might be thinking time management is the answer. Well I believe my excellent ratings and high quality abilities are reason that numbers are just numbers. With a positive stance, that numbers are just numbers are truth that equals success.

Example:

Customer orders 40 items. Batch pay plus tip est. $15.00 Includes an estimated $7.50 tip. **Please note* If you don’t communicate with the customer, not even send a greeting that you are the shopper. Show up with 23 items. Believe me your tip will decrease quickly before you put the car in reverse.

I personally go above matters for customers. You might be your own boss in ways. Customers are your paycheck. Simple as that. From the acceptance of the order and 24 hours after delivery. You the shopper will cross the mind of the customer more than once in that time frame. Customers are wonderful individuals who trust you to go above and beyond to deliver the eggs unbroken, bread in tact, and groceries as precise as your ability. If one of those options are altered, that experience will reflect on the you as the shopper.

With this being said I take the extra 15 mins past my shopping goal time. A late delivery will make a customer happy if you are searching for an item needed. With GPS customers know where you are til the order is delivered. Communication is simple and easy.

Back to the example that $15 batch pay will and can increase with your efforts. I have had customers thank me fir adding items or finding a good substitute with an in application tip. Then handing me $10 in cash. Thank you and your welcome are tip friendly gestures. ** Please be mindful that money is tight, people are struggling. Be appreciative of the smile you gave by delivering. I had customers repeat many times that was heart wrenching to apologize for not having extra money for a tip. * ** if you get butt hurt over no tip. This job is not for you. Be blessed for the $20 tip for delivery 4 item much needed by a customer who was rushed for time and you showed up yesterday. If you take the reflection of putting a smile on someone face, the blessing will always be there.

Have the mentality of giving is receiving. Be a giver with a good heart. And the rewards are a surprise.

After all the blessings of delivery is awesome. The new faces and friendly appreciation are positive every delivery. If you want positive feedback. If you choose otherwise, well you will get feedback very quickly in negative results.

After all people want what you want. To save time and money. The work will always be available. We are human we love to eat.

Until our minds meet again. Be safe out there. Many blessings and much love. Remember Everyday Minds Matter 💖 -Della🦋

🌱How Schizophrenia is misrepresented in TV and film — and how we can do better

Over the years or even current mental health has lingered with much stigma. Reality, helping to encourage recovery or treatment should be priority, yet create entertainment is the wrong way. TV has shook the self- imagine and twisted the reality for entertainment purpose. Here you will learn we can do better with misrepresentation of mental health.

Misrepresented by TV

From Yellowjackets to Criminal Minds, the schizophrenic charaQcters we see onscreen are usually supernatural villains, criminals, or inspirational fodder.Courtney Eaton as Lottie in Yellowjackets. (Showtime)

We’ve all seen popular movies and TV shows that have used schizophrenia to drive a story forward. But how often do we stop to consider what those representations actually mean? How do they portray the experience of actually living with schizophrenia, and how do the stereotypes that these representations lean on come back around to harm mad and disabled people?

A 2021 GLAAD report found that disabled characters made up only 2.8 per cent of all series regular characters in the 2021-22 television season in the U.S. That’s roughly 22 characters out of 775 total examined. When looking at that figure, especially considering that 22 per cent of Canadians and 26 per cent of Americans live with visible and invisible disabilities, people with disabilities are shockingly underrepresented onscreen.

What’s even worse is that the few representations of disability and madness that we do see are wrapped up in stereotypes which impact how we view mad and disabled people around us. Schizophrenia is one of the conditions that the general public views most negatively, according to a 2014 study published in the journal Psychiatry Research. The prevalence of stereotypes also creates internalized stigma that impacts the self-image of disabled people. Jake Gyllenhaal as Donnie Darko, Jena Malone as Gretchen Ross, and James Duval as Frank in Donnie Darko. (Newmarket Films)

A commonly observed trope in TV and movies represents schizophrenia as criminal and violent. (Think Norman Bates in Psycho, Mr. Cleg in Spider, or any of the dozens of characters from shows like Criminal Minds’ endless carousels of violent depictions of madness and neurodiversity.) Horror, thrillers, and true crime often frame mad people as villains whose motivations are blamed on conditions like schizophrenia, which perpetuates the idea that people who have those conditions are a danger to others. 

Another common representation of schizophrenia makes the condition out to be supernatural or magical, like in the show Yellowjackets or the film Donnie Darko. When schizophrenia is placed in the supernatural or fantasy realms, it diminishes the real-life experience of living with schizophrenia and suggests that it is beyond humanity or our understanding. By aligning schizophrenia with demonic entities and malicious spirits, these supernatural representations similarly perpetuate the idea of schizophrenic people as “other,” which can ostracize them and negatively impact their self-perception.

Not every trope makes people with schizophrenia look like villains, but even the more well-intentioned attempts can be harmful in their own way. Take, for instance, the portrayal of the “supercrip” as seen in A Beautiful Mind, The Soloist, or the show Legion. “Supercrip” is a term used by the disabled community to refer to stories where people “overcome” their disability. Although these depictions are sometimes created to challenge the perceptions of what mad and disabled people can and can’t do, as explained by Stella Young, they “objectify disabled people for the benefit of nondisabled people.”

This trope also suggests madness and disability exist entirely within a person instead of engaging with the oppressive social, legal, and medical conditions that create barriers for mad and disabled people. “Supercrip” stories can act as a defense mechanism for the status quo — because if one mad or disabled person could beat the odds and live happily in our current society, ostensibly, all mad and disabled people should have it within themselves to do the same. Criminal and violent representation in Criminal Minds Joe Adler as Danny Lee Stokes, a schizophrenic serial killer, in Criminal Minds. (CBS)

A 2012 study found that, in 41 movies studied, a majority of schizophrenic characters displayed violent behaviour toward others and themselves, and almost a third of those characters displayed homicidal tendencies. The same study also found that causation is hardly discussed in those films.

Shows like Criminal Minds, which follow a procedural format where a new weekly suspect is pursued by federal officers and caught by the end of the episode, are chock full of exaggerated depictions of schizophrenia. The formulaic approach of Criminal Minds made the show easy to watch, but to keep viewers from getting bored, it had to continue to shock them with more and more gruesome stories. Crimes committed by supposedly schizophrenic people ranged from cannibalism to necrophilia.

Even if the viewer knows to take these stories with a grain of salt, the depiction of these horrific crimes and lack of exploration into a character’s motives — coupled with zero follow-up on their fates after they are caught (or often, killed) — reinforced an “us vs. them” mentality that creates a fearsome idea of schizophrenia. This is bolstered by storylines that continuously ask the viewer to sympathize with the neurotypical, non-disabled police, who are billed as heroes for tracking down and capturing the suspects. 

Mad and disabled people are actually more likely to be victims of violence rather than the perpetrators of it. And in a study in which 46 mad people were interviewed about the stigma they have experienced, people with schizophrenia reported more verbal and physical abuse than any other group in the study.

The show’s less overtly negative representations are few and far in between. Spencer Reid’s mother Diana, one of the rare recurring characters with schizophrenia, is shown to have a loving relationship with her son. But even though the show sympathizes with her, it also makes her out to be one of the “good ones” against a backdrop of countless violent mad characters; ultimately, whatever positive representation Diana provides is completely overshadowed by an overrepresentation of schizophrenic killers.Supernatural representation in Yellowjackets Courtney Eaton as Lottie in Yellowjackets. (Showtime)

Another common stereotype in TV and movies suggests that schizophrenia is the result of some kind of supernatural force. This trope depicts schizophrenia as something that possesses a person and forces them to do things that they have no control over, often harming others in the process.

Showtime’s critically acclaimed 2021 psychological drama Yellowjackets depicts a character named Lottie who experiences hallucinations after running out of her medication for an unnamed condition. While the show was praised for its representation of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), it slips into problematic territory with the way Lottie transforms from a sweet background character to becoming possessed, experiencing premonitions and visions of death, and calling on the girls around her to hurt one of their own. Since this transformation happens after Lottie runs out of her medication, the implication is that she is this way when untreated, which reduces a complex condition to a clichéd representation. Yet again, a mad character becomes a villain or someone to be feared, and the only explanation for their motivation is their madness. 

With just one season out so far, the show is still well-positioned to turn this representation on its head and provide useful commentary about the way Lottie was medicalized at a young age for her apparently atypical behaviour. But if it continues along the same path, Yellowjackets will become another representation of schizophrenia that dehumanizes mad people and causes the viewer to fear them.”Supercrip” representation in A Beautiful Mind Russell Crowe as John Nash in A Beautiful Mind. (Universal Pictures)

“Supercrip” stories rely on narratives of inspiration and overcoming adversity. One of the most well-known depictions of schizophrenia is A Beautiful Mind, the 2001 film starring Russell Crowe. A Beautiful Mind won four of the eight Academy Awards it was nominated for, including Best Picture

and is based on the life of mathematician John Nash as told through Sylvia Nasar’s unauthorized biography of him. Throughout the film, Nash experiences hallucinations that lead him to be forcibly institutionalized; his condition also inadvertently causes him to put his infant son in danger. But Nash is later able to overcome his hallucinations by sheer willpower and return to his work, eventually going on to win the Nobel Prize. 

Some have noted that schizophrenia is generally well-represented in A Beautiful Mind, and the viewer is certainly meant to sympathize with John Nash instead of seeing him as a violent person or a criminal. Nash’s ability to exercise control over his life and learn to live with schizophrenia, especially with the support of his loved ones, can be an empowering thing for mad people to see on screen. But nevertheless, this type of story paints madness and disabilities as individual “problems” that need to be fixed and overcome in order to live “normally.”How can we represent schizophrenia more thoughtfully? Matthew Gray Gubler as Spencer Reid and Jane Lynch as Diana Reid in Criminal Minds. (CBS)

As with so many movies and TV shows about marginalized people, stories about people with schizophrenia are rarely told with mad people in control of the narrative, and the actors who play them are not part of mad and/or disabled communities. While neurotypical and non-disabled actors take home awards and accolades for their portrayals of madness and disability, real mad and disabled people feel the repercussions of these stereotypical depictions reverberating in their everyday lives. 

Mad and disabled people deserve to see themselves represented wholly, not as punchlines, lazy plot points, or inspirational fodder for the benefit of the able-bodied. Our experiences are all unique and multi-faceted, yet the stories told about us are too often boiled down to stereotypes instead of embracing neurodivergence, madness, and disabilities. 

Increasing or improving representation of schizophrenia in the media will not immediately change societally-rooted ableist attitudes. But empathetic and informed storytelling can help to counteract and correct the misinformation that is shared through TV and movies. With stories about schizophrenia still so deeply entrenched in stereotypes that impact the real-life treatment of mad people and the inequities they face, the need to tell better stories isn’t just critical — it could be life-saving.

Until our minds meet again. Be safe out there with blessings and much love. Remember Everyday Mind’s Matter 💕😇

💸Referral Codes

Save a Little Cash

 Referral Codes, Extra rewards or effortless research? Peace of Mind Assistance?

 

Most companies offer new customers discounts or rewards for services used regularly.  Just  by signing up for or purchasing new product and service needed. Commonly failing to research hidden offers a company may promote.  Once completed a signup or creating an account not applying a referral code or coupon- results uncompleted terms.  Benefits lost due to failure completing requirements at signup.

Many new customers loss of discounts and benefits are plentiful. 

We have all created an account for a new game, credit card, cash app, or just signup to subscription.  Amongst new signup or creating an account – a referral code provided to offer benefits.  Just for signing up free or termed product or service is offered.  Either the big or small fine print, by completing the task or requirements using the referral code – rewarded for sharing a link attached to the service or product.. Now you gain the promotional benefits if requirements are meet.  Easy enough, right?

A month ago, you signed up for a new streaming service. Only to discover a promotional commercial offering 50% off monthly service for new customers. Why wasn’t the offer applied to your service? Its all about resources and research.  Companies advertise to reach new customers generally through their services. Other words, existing customers see the advertisement and have to share with friends and family. Companies save money by advertising on their own service or product.

Switching providers to gain discounts are common amongst existing customers. Accumulated increase for monthly service, while new customer services are discounted. Service providers who offer promotional discounts are ignored. Yes ignored because switching providers disrupts routine. 

Complaining about price with no effort to change defeats the purpose.

So why do we lack patience to take control of services available? The effort needed to talk and negotiate.  A fear of “No”. A fear of effort to make change comfortable.

This is a new world.  Use referral codes, promo coupons, ask friends about services they use.  Every dollar and cents count as inflation rolling at high turbulence.  The return of resources and research is a must utilize on demand.  

If you are struggling financially the examples below are real life assistance.

 With all social media platforms make a simple post. Help one another with programs or assistance that change give someone peace of mind.  Share the love… Examples:

⬅Hey friends

Just taking a minute to share a few resources to save money.   Products or services that might benefits your current situation. As my friend knew that basic cable service has increased. By cutting the cord, streaming has the benefit of discounted EBB (emergency broadband service) provided by eligibility up to $30 off phone or internet. Apply through your service provider ask about the ACP wireless service. The service application must be complete through the national verifier website. The website gives pretty clear instructions to check eligibility for internet and phone services. 

Yes, this is a real program

In regards, I hope this offers someone a peace of mind financially and is shared.

Example (2):

⬅ Hey Friends

May this reach you with blessings.  Wow covid-19 has kicked ass without looking back. From financial struggles to mental health concerns social distancing is like the zombie apocalypse.  A new world of confusion and dazed. A time for alcohol sales to hit record highs is a fact during 2020 and 2021. Lockdown created a social distancing we still long to redefine.

Everyday as we are challenged financially. Blessings are appreciated.  Utilize your community action centers. Utility assistance. Rent assistance for those impacted by    covid-19. Health at Home eviction relief fund must apply online.

Resources are available. Share these blessings with those who need peace of mind and assistance.

After all, its doubtful any sleep was lost over a referral code. One importantly missed due past conversation at lunch with your co-worker about signing up for a service they use.  The 14 days elapsed and $50 has washed away.  For not using a friends referral code. Now you create a new account to receive a special bonus. Referral code for applying or signing up- a 14 carrot gold plated referral code that is long forgotten. Or lost eexistence.

Does the Friday night gatherings with friends highlight; benefits rewarded from referral bonuses shared? Huh? Funny line right? 

The whole key to referral codes. Google them when signing up for a new product or service. Share your referral code link after  signup is complete.  Those 5 minutes to share an email offering your referral code could offer rewards.  Someone could save the offer to signup at a later date.  A simple share of referral codes can have positive results.   

So what does referral codes or bonuses really offer?

Is it worth the time to share your special link referral code?

The limited time and terms applied to receive the rewards are unlikely completed.  As the bonus offer is uncompleted; the company gains with no loss of promotional profits.  The unclaimed bonus is money or benefits offered for signing up, that could save money for added services.

🛴Footing … Dial-Up ….. Co..nec..ting..

Flintstones

Meet the Flintstone’s, a time in history when life was priceless. I am honored to be a Flintstone.  Dad worked, mom took care of the household.  A rotary phone, shared with everyone in the house..  There was no secrets, ear hustling- no one listened to conversations.  We ran back outside to play if someone was on the phone.  If you made a phone call- either no one was home or the line was busy.  If it were important we went to their house.  Going through those big phone books, searching names that offered endless laughter. Prank calls, the laughter of being a silly kid. No being able to trace the call had it’s purpose- at the moment.  Following the cord or picking up the other phone- an awkward silence at times.

Gas stations and some grocery stores were closed on Sunday’s. A day when families enjoyed drives /rides, visiting friends or family out of town. Families had in person quality time. Sitting in the living room or outside conversation about everything. Listening to older relatives childhood stories, had offered knowledge and laughter. If we wanted to know something, hands on was taught through physical labor. Manual labor had no limit or boundaries. Chores had appreciation, respect, love, and support behind it.

Communication has no barriers. Calling relatives were every week on certain days. Routine and frequently kept for years. Staying in touch was priority for family and friends for connect was important. Sleepover with friends- no problem our parents met in person. Being dropped off and picked up- only source of GPS. Brown bag or a lunchbox with thermos- total excitement for a school field trip. Your lunch ticket- your ability to prove responsibility. Relationships with others in school, were influences to how we interact and communicate. These skills from peers and teacher were priority stepping stones; needed, later in life.

Riding bikes, catching frogs, gardening, barefoot and bee strings

Developmental skills learnt at childhood, are triggers, and reinforces needed to become an adult. Every experience as a child, reflect coping abilities, and knowledge of life. Not everyone has the same knowledge to cope with anger, loss, or pain. Catching frogs, riding bikes, or barefoot getting stung by a bee, are testing abilities of character. Reaction to a bee sting is tolerance and strength. Those little pest can hurt, but mentally can prove one’s tolerance to pain. Balance is technique used to establish coordination to ride a bike. These are just simple task performed and applied to developmental growth. Being Open-Minded is fundamentals applied to learning practices. Education and resources utilized, enhance experiences that offer personal growth and new opportunities.

Flintstones main source for building; manual labor- hands on and experience. Most reasonable creative abilities, were by imagination and mental technique. How to make the best from supplies available. Using your feet sourced transportation. Transportation, in which, had no complaints. Toughness of feet provided movement. No battery, radio, or rear view mirrors were known of.. Yet survival to maintain – those did just fine. As Flintstones life was Yabba- Dabba, dooo… Appreciation and respect was in every home. Conflict was rare, as basic supplies were the essentials to live. As the world began to populate, intelligence developed. From dinosaur speed and peace of mind, happiness, and comfortable. Humans evolved to speed and advancement. We become greedy wanting more.. more of everything, our need grew and grew…. And soon out of the sky!!!

Meet The Jetson’s – WIFI Speed

The little man was bought out, cost of living went up. A world of speed, greed, and the mighty dollar took control. Both parents had to work, and children had sitters. Gardens had no purpose, as demand grew artificial intelligence took charge. Boxed and canned food demand created processing factories. Speed had generated intelligence to control the world. Advanced technology, took the world and shook the little man. The hand made of manual labor lost its shine, when the ole’ mighty dollar came alive.

A separation in class divided the rich and poor. Children picked at or criticized other kids by financial status. A change took over so fast in the late 1990’s rotary phones became cordless, you could now leave messages on an answering machine. A monitor and keyboard – a computer, wow how expensive they were. Advancement of intelligence, at high demand in the world.

A simple life in history, as chaos, filled conflict, stress, and cable television- opened the news. News around the world, A new age, violence, robbery, crime of multiple levels, influence that created problems. Negative news; ripped and stole positive energy of our youth, neighbors, family, and friends. A moment in time, the need for speed influenced, greed. Greed to out do, be better, make more money, and advance with speed a Jetson. Friends fell out, family turned on one another. The daily news seemed to open negative influences into homes. Created challenging motives to empower money and self imagine. We have created a monster that continues to grow. Rapid speed..

And an extremely powerful connection happened. An artificial intelligence. The stepping stones, to modern light, to what we live today. Evil technology speed that controls our lives. Intelligence that destroyed family, friends, jobs, children’s developmental values. Communication is texting, social media vs. talking in person. Discipline is not an option, because knowing your child or friend is interaction. Interaction and productive communication no longer exist. Relationships have went to shit. Children and grandchildren depend on parents & grandparents, now days. Those important connections are broken by technology. No time fot interaction or personal involvement.

Children don’t know the struggles of looking up “capsule” in a dictionary or “mars” in an encyclopedia. We helped each other if we didn’t know or understand something. Parents have used technology as sitters. Truth is technology has raised our children. Friends are online- no longer outside to interact or play… Bullying is the new cyber playground. Instead of helping each other – to hurt someone or belittle is the new trend. Structured families are rare. * If you remember; getting up to change the cable channel, (having to slide the ticker to a channel), on a floor model tv. Most of all; we gathered in the living room to watch a movie, had popcorn, or watch weekly shows together. – continuing these practice- you are parents of 1970’s to 1980’s Flintstone’s. Big Yabba- Dabba Do, well accomplished.**

In history, tools needed in today’s world, no longer exist. Resources offered are fading away. As new advancements awaken, the manual labor is pushed out. The final destination has arrived; Technology.

Time Evolved Chaos Happened “” NO“” Longer Offer Generation Youth

This my friends, new generations have no youth development morals or survival skills. Today the technology advancement– destroyed manual labor and hands on skills and work ethic. Manual labor– the mind advanced artificial intelligence, a human robot. The ability preformed manual labor into a operation through Proof that Everyday Mind’s Matter. Technology has ruined relationships, destroyed morals, and formed addictions….

Bitter truth, we face is the history can not erased or re-written. What we created is artificial intelligence to comfort and addiction. Poisonous entertainment coverage from phone to phone. Education has lost the core of intelligence. An escape and easy way to answers, solution, and divorce. We can’t visit Aunt Sally 2 miles away. But you better believe, face-time and snap chat sent with emojis, your busy will be sent. Excuses to visit in person, we are so busy doing social media shit, that social distancing is history. Social distancing had played into our busy lives, it was a “thing”; hideous barriers set to avoid live connections. Addictions of technology has mental health at a record high level.

Technology has raised our children. Children don’t know the meaning of affection and love. Robbed by technology we don’t even realize… Yes, I say this with heartfelt pain. Our level of acceptance, to love has lesser value. Our closeness to others are at a social stand still.

Take a minute and take this in…. Have you attended any funerals in the past couple years? Has the world lost emotions? Sentimental touch? Empathy or compassion? Tears must be left at the door or of history. Do we not see what our time has created? Are relationship at such social distancing; that, pain has no time or place for tears? Have relationships changed before our eyes, that it’s normal to no longer express emotions? Hell no, we are conditioned with stimulus. And without a deep connection, there are no emotion connection to tears. My friends, take a deep breath. Life is a precious gift. Time can not be place on pause to rewind.. When your final days approach- will your legacy be written in Flintstone’s – Stone Age? Or will your legacy Fly with the Jetsons – lost in speed? Or lastly- will the addiction of technology; form the trace of your legacy? Are you a man who covered social media with endless post on women’s profiles? A man who wanted to experience life to ultimate highs. Blocking emotions and attachments to others, selfish pleasure– to satisfy your desire and needs? Or a women who preyed on dating sites, — aging with time to find a sugar daddy vs. real love? Technology has deleted our connection to empathy, compassion, and our real character. Our needs, desire, and greed has created addiction within our minds.

Our relationships are not built on love. Love has settled to a comfort zone, that we believe is okay — overtime.. Lust and temptations have no boundaries. After all there’s no emotional ties to comfort. Our excuse is we’re busy. We don’t have time. Right, we don’t take time to understand ourselves. Our happenings, our worlds have been rocked by divorce, deceit, lies, broken homes, and overtime– we accept– nothing. We just find a replacement. Our mind and body are off balance. Acting in impulse, no one wants to feel pain. So we condition the pain, — a false emotion to hide behind. To communicate with our partners, in person has faded. Why? In our world today– an ability to perform a live connection– just conflicts creating a barrier. Corrupted our minds to shut off– a secret auto pilot that gets us by. In no time, social distancing has expanded in outside relationships. Tucked in our own shell of excuse or existence. Conditioned to no longer deal with feelings, emotions, or cope with uncomfortable situations. Why not convert to being open-minded? Change your relationship status to live connection and welcome conversation. Bring back history, close temptation; reconnect with Dial-Up. You might find something meaningful; you never experienced. Maybe take a step behind- – create the Flintstones life. Jetsons or technology life has depleted manual labor. But you can still grow a garden, limit texting and open dinner time as a family. Everyone sit at the table no cell phones, talk about your day. Enjoy the interaction to express your character. Its great to be a Flintstones, no stress, no chaos, no distractions. Live connection, that’s says ” I am right, here”! A feeling that you can’t deny– a connection heart to heart.

Until our minds meet again, Be safe out there, much love and blessings.. Remember Everyday Minds Matter! 😘😇
