    Oh, happy day for all the dad's and parents and people donating their time and energy and cells towards advancing the journey we call living in this time and place.

    KINDNESS = that was the one thing James's father wanted him to pratice outside of what he should or should not do and outside of anything.

    Are you doing onto one another as we might like others to do onto us?

    We don't need a book to be kind, put the weapons away and enjoy one another and empathize with one another.

    I have taken meds for being white but not black yet. LOL. It's terrible. I never asked to be white or female or anything. I just wanted to play in my parents back yard and look up at the sky and giggle all day and eat cookies and see who I would be able to beat on the swings........

    The medicine I have taken for anger has been self care. The only person who ever taught me that was Charles Merrick. Some of you know him as Coach Charlie Francis. I have never been particularly good at self care. He was better at it than I was but i knocked him off his game i suspect as I am a self admitted control freak. ( huge surprise for those of you who've stuck around long enough to watch the dust settle).
    Anger, especially a continuous dose, has nasty side effects. i know this as I think my anger started after grade 8 and at the start of grade 9. Yikes.

    I have been juggling the purchase of a new car while dealing with my dog's surgery.
    Shopify has changed many things QUICKLY so it's Ange go big ( or bigger ) or ange go home. ( not going anyplace yet... Shopify isn't telling us or you and me what to do or how to adhere. Clearly there are other options ffs)

    WHAT IS WORSE THAN HAVING ANXIETY?

    ( I am not going to tell you that yet. Let's see if or whom might have the courage to engage with us or me or at least take a shot at answering this. Why not? If I spoon feed you the answer ( we all want spoon feeding in some ways LOL but likely no one is able to admit it with awareness) likely you are not going to think about this as much as I would like to invite you to do so......

    What's worse than having any issue ( including anxiety)is NOT knowing you suffer from the multiple facets of *brain health issues.

    You have heard this expresssion?

    Your best offense is a good defense?

    Your best defense is a good offense.

    LEAVE no stones unturned people.

    On the track or off the track, does not matter until it matters. Fix your shit or it will fix you. Choose what you get to choose NOW.

    Why stand on the tracks unless you have to?

    I signed up for what I signed up for. It's taken me almost until now to realize how powerful we are.

    This is one of my favorites.

    " Our body wants to heal itself. So if we are suffering from anything, WHY are we not healing? What might be standing in the way?

    trama
    injury known or unknown
    inflammation due to poor food choice
    inflammation due to undiagnosed tick bite
    poor sleep quality ( who snores? / you might want to test for sleep apnea. ( this is why I started practicing nasal breathing to reduce my anxiety. Our breath changes when we feel stress, good and bad stress or change will also influence oxygen to your main hard drive YOUR BRAIN.
    the list goes on and on so I will be adding as we go...

    I had the best coach in the world coaching me and it's taken me a lifetime to learn to really relax and breathe properly and have some fun.

    Was it because of x or y or z? Fill in the blank for you?

    Who cares. Today is a new day and today you get to go pick shit that matters to you. You don't even have to share it with anyone. Write it down if you want or not. Share it or not. HOPEFULLY, you have at least one person to share stuff with. EVERYTHING with.

    Why? well a better question might be why not?

    There is no way I could have been all things for my late husband nor should we try this as partners.

    We need friends and family and community and organized fun and disorganized fun and education and work and children or not and pets or not ( who doesn't want pets? LOL)

    You want to be your own world record holder? OLY champ or national hero? Focus on you first and get to know how fabulous you are outside of your mom or dad if youve been lucky enough to know them or have them know you. Focus on how you roll and how you could be if x, y and z changed?

    DO not lose hope.
    Hope is all and be prepared to do the work.

    EVERY one, including our pets have some kind or form or duration of anxiety.

    WE are going to learn some of the things that make anxiety work for us and some of the things that give anxiety a bad wrap.

    ( * brain health term I learned from Tana and Daniel Amen. A partnered team who offer enormous free info from their newsletter regarding brain health. Having negative stigma around anxiety or what we no longer wish to call "mental health issues", does not help anyone except drug pushers and ill informed helpers who stand to profit from YOUR issues. )

    Learn your own stuff and do it sooner than later as the more we go get now the smoother life gets today.

    peace all. hugs all. chin up and go get some fresh air and take it easy on you.

    Re: Anxiety and Elite Sprinting

    Major tranquilizers are used to sedate certain brain health issues.

    Let's think about that for a second.

    Here are 3 things that healthfully tranquilize me and or are effective for Angela Coon. ( I can only speak for me as I am no body or no mind and I am nothing)

    1. love, love making, love talk, loving, love, love and did I mention LOVE
    2. Sex consensual sex, fun sex, sex with someone you like, feel happy about, sex with you as first you need to know how to please you
    3. Nutrient delivery LOL ARE you over fed and under nourished?
    4. dancing, playing, reminiscing, sharing, caring, appreciating, eating, with somebody or alone or with nature

    Did I say 3 or 4 or how do we integrate the plan into our day?
    Do we integrate these things into our day and play and work?
    WHat have you done for yourself LATELY?

    Re: Anxiety and Elite Sprinting

    Are drugs needed for anxiety and depression and are drugs needed and necessary fun stop?

    heck yeah. I think drugs are AMAZING for some people. Thank you to science and innovation and technology.

    Does Amazon have good reason to prevent people from buying emergency contraceptives?

    I cancelled cable years ago now.

    Today I am going to stop part of my relationship with Amazon.

    I am not sure how Amazon is operating is a good thing for the balance of our happy places.

    Thank goodness john carlos and rosa parks had ( have) courage

    Re: Anxiety and Elite Sprinting

    Why does no one want to talk about brain stuff?

    It seems to really freak people out.

    I met a very interesting man at the car show just before the pandemic. So many amazing cars and I was on a staycation avoiding the large hole in my old roof. I went to swim and have a hot tub and escape with pets and without travel as it was doable and easy.

    His son was having issues and I tried to talk about it to him based on my interest in anxiety and how it's connected with addiction. I could see and feel the shame and concern and that he was not wanting to talk out load about this.

    Interesting fact.

    Did you know that a great deal of people have had some kind of trauma and or anxiety or suffered loss or grief and pass it off as fast as they ate a homemade doughnut? ( I love homemade doughnuts)

    Re: Anxiety and Elite Sprinting

    Just because we might suspect we have or have had low grade depression or anxiety or another sigmitized brain health concern, does not mean it's bad.

    What's bad might be not realizing this is going on for you because one of the biggest modes of human's coping is DENIAL.

    Denying oneself on purpose or not on purpose is one of the most common ways to cope.
