Have you ever wondered what you would do if you had unlimited resources?
I have asked many people this question and everyone has a different answer. Almost everyone would pay off debts, help out friends and family, etc. What would you do after all that kind of stuff?
Imagine for a moment that you suddenly are wealthy beyond your wildest dreams. You can do whatever you want. Your debts are all payed off. Your home is well furnished and your pantry has plenty of good food in it. Your wardrobe is well organized with fashionable outfits. You have a nice car, truck or motorcycle and everything that is required to maintain it. Your family and friends are taken care of. What now? What’s next?
Here is a list of projects/ideas that are the result of asking myself that question:
- piano/guitar lessons (for me and baby)
- design healthy/yummy TV dinners
- start an organization to help the President
- make a TV show for kids (or a cable TV channel)
- eradicate disease in a small third world city or country
- formulate a cheap/healthy dog food
- start an aquaponics farm
- design a more efficient water heater
- lobby for healthy school lunches
- design a clothing line
- invent an organic nutritional supplement that helps prevent diabetes
- start a sports medicine center and relaxation spa
- design a cheap electric car or bike
- start community centers in boring communities
- grow a farm
- promote biomass power knowledge and/or open a biomass power facility
- adopt 20 kids
- design a specialized search engine
- open a forum to discuss solutions for national/global problems
- manufacture more efficient elegant light fixtures
- make up a story that entertains people
- create a sweet treat that is delicious and healthy
- start an organization that helps single parents
It’s a work in progress. Time is really the ultimate resource. My time is all accounted for right now with things like dirty diapers, cleaning and homework, but if there was ‘extra’ time, you now have some idea of how it would get spent.
I’ve had arthritis since I was a small child. It sucks.
Here is a list of things that have had varying amounts of success at treating the pain or relaxing locked muscles, improving general health and flexibility, or just plain curing my arthritis. They’re in order for how important they have been to my overall health, or to bringing me closer to my own personal cure.
- Massages with oil
- Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth
- More fruits and vegetables (and less meat, alcohol and processed carbs)
- Exercise (mostly cardio)
- Social Interaction (talking to people helps)
- Enzyme Supplementation
- Moringa Oleifera
- Making Smoothies
- Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide
- Neem Oil
- Sea Buckthorn
- Tea Tree oil
- Olive leaf
- Cooking Herbs (Thyme, Oregano, Rosemary, Parsley etc.)
- Pumpkin seeds/Sunflower seeds
- Raw Garlic
- B vitamins
- Wheatgrass juice
- Red Clover (leaf and flower)
There are many different things to consider for people that are dealing with arthritis. Arthritis can be caused by several different factors, such as:
- Bacteria imbalance
- Nutritional deficiency
- Stagnant energy
- Structural problems
- Unhealthy diet
- Toxic build-up
I am getting better all the time, and the more I learn, the more I am able to help other people and myself to beat arthritis.
Emma and I were just hanging out today, getting some painting done, and I realized that we haven’t posted any pictures in a little while, so here are a few of us out on outings, from days when the sun is shining, and the weather is warm.
Here is Emma, checking out some fisher price stuff in the discount toy isle. She is fantastic at testing out toys and can often decide if the toy is something that she will play with for a long time, or if it is something that will just collect dust once it gets home.
Taking her places is always a joy and she is sociable and enjoys playing with other children. She gets massage sometimes with a mixture of shea, palm oil and safflower oil. I make it myself from different sources and it’s really healthy for your skin and it smells delicious. The current formulation is attempting to incorporate cocoa butter, which is very waxy and has a tendency to bead up.
Emma is a jumper, and she loves to jump. She jumps a lot. She’s a little ninja dancer and would jump around like a tiny superhero if we let her. Her favorite toy is the trampoline. She could grow up to be a professional snowboarder, or a bmx bike star. She also loves to paint and draw and could grow up to be an architect or an artist.
