Day 21 – 22 Pushups – 22 Days – Awareness of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)

Day 21 – 22 Pushups – 22 Days – Awareness of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)

One more day to go. Taken at our closest park as there is rain around so could not go far. My intention was to go to the local Fair at Rosenberg where my friends have entered into the “cook Off”  but it looked like I was going to get rained upon. So with glass in hand of Prosecco it seems watching football is on the menu now for the afternoon.

The reason for 22 days and 22 pushups is the recognition and awareness of proven statistical evidence that there are at least 22 veterans commit suicide each day in the United States Of America and a growing number in Australia. There has been 274 suicides in Australia since 1999.

For most of us, we can not comprehend the trauma that they experience and how tolerant and supportive we must be for those who fight for our freedoms. It is not only tragic for our vets it is certainly heartbreaking for the families of these young men and women.
Today I nominate Vicki Moran 
to take the challenge.

No pressure . If you can great, if not that’s ok too.

But once you accept, you start tomorrow. The rules are simple:
* Once you are nominated your 22 days starts the following day.
* Every day you record yourself doing 22 push ups, try your best to reach 22. If that means doing assisted push ups (from your knees) or you have to stop and take a break, that is fine but try to get them all done in one video.
* Every day the push-ups must be in a different location.
* Every day you just nominate a different person.
* And finally have fun with this!
This a great way to have fun and let these courageous Men and Women who put their life on the line and those suffering from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) know that someone is thinking about them.

Day 14 – 22 Pushups – 22 Days – Awareness of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)

Day 14 – 22 Pushups – 22 Days – Awareness of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)

Today I went to the Bohemian Hill Tavern in Rosenberg owned by my friends Ruth and Terry. I was going to do it outside in front of the bar so you could see the name but the temperature was close to 100 degrees if not 100 degrees, so that was way to hot. I ended up doing the pushups in the bar. Thank you Pattie Meyen for doing the video. At least you got my feet and head in. Thanks Bohemian for letting me do it there.

Today I nominate my friend  Millie Jarnot to take the challenge. Actually she has done her first day last night.

Chemicals to avoid like Retinyl palmitate, a type of vitamin A found in many SPF products can speed skin Tumor growth. Oxybenzone, a chemical found in many sunscreens is not only bad for your skin it has been found to be killing coral reefs and other sea creatures. Because of sunscreen used while swimming the Oxybenzone harms the DNA of both adult coral and larval young.

How To Teach Your Parents A Lesson

This is so true. I have witnessed parents texting their kids to see where they are, knowing they are driving. Do what everyone did before mobile phones, phone before they leave, calculate an estimated time of arrival, if they are a half a day late then start to worry.
I guess in most cases it is a set of rules for them and a set of rules for the kids.

I’ll be there soo

Great Beauty Rules.

My husband has always said that if a women walks into the room with a smile on her face she is instantly attractive and draws attention to herself. I agree and so does Bobbi Brown a guru in the cosmetic world.

Bobbi believes there are 10 rules to beauty and suggests that the best tip is being happy and there is nothing more beautiful than a big smile.
These are her tips for being beautiful inside and out.

1. Be Nice
Be kind to others. An unkind feeling towards others shows inside and out.

2. Tell the truth
Always be truthful to yourself and to others. Lying will catch up with you and your beauty will disappear smartly.

3. Take risks. Don’t be scared of the word “No”. Don’t take it for an answer. Failure never hurt anyone it only makes you more determined and in the end successful.

4. Never give up. Keep banging at the doors. If you believe in yourself then keep keeping on.

5. Be on Time. No one likes to be kept waiting. Be 5 min early. If you are only five minutes late – call

6. Be open. Be open. You never know who or what is around the corner.

7. Care about something. Sports, music, politics. Get involved and most of all get active.

8. Give back. Find a cause that is meaningful to you and make it your own.

9. Work hard. This is such good advice. Start at the bottom and learn all you can. Be strong. Don’t get upset when things don’t come to you right away.

10. Look people in the eye.. It shows confidence and in my opinion good manners.
