So it seems that everywhere I look on social media someone is bagging out someone. Everyone is an expert on every single thing and it annoys me. Today I am taking aim at those who bag out, degrade, belittle and basically talk crap about MLM companies and those who are a part of them. Apparently people who are in MLM companies are brainwashed, brain dead, money hungry, unqualified morons who use products that are over inflated in price and try to ‘peddle’ their wares on to unsuspecting others promising millions of dollars in return! Now while there is a bit of truth to that, NOT ALL people who are in an MLM are like that!! I am in 2 mlms, I am far from brainwashed as I will tell people what works and doesn’t work, I will also tell people to see a doctor where necessary, I share MY experiences and you can listen or not, if not, it’s no big deal. The products ARE usually superior, I have tried at least 15 other companies and none of them compare. I get it though, these days money is tight and people are on a budget so they use non MLM companies, but they don’t need to be running around telling everyone that the MLM companies are bad and so are their products and that’s why they changed. Usually it’s a money issue or they will be people who couldn’t get the business side happening for them.Continue reading “Stop Bagging Out MLM…”
Dusted for Another Year!
Well it has been a hectic 2 weeks leading up to Christmas but it was worth it for the kids and I am glad it’s over. Christmas is a big deal in our family, especially with 7 grandchildren and of course I am the one who gets to put on Christmas every year, yayyyy NOT. As I get older I find I am getting less bothered but I push myself to give the family a nice Christmas. Old Grinchma (me) came to visit but I had to kick her butt to the curb so I could keep going lol!Continue reading “Dusted for Another Year!”
Re-Connecting Families Through ‘Gaming’
‘Gaming’ aka playing video games has become one of the largest industries in the world with revenue sitting at $159billion USD and projected revenue to be well over $200billion USD in the next couple of years. That’s some big numbers for playing games but the fact is that there is more to ‘gaming’ than a heap of teenagers sitting in dark rooms swearing and screaming at a computer screen. It has become an integral part of communication and community, to those who are either on their own, with no family, or who have mental health issues that prevent them from mixing with their peers (autism, anxiety etc). Instead of frowning upon these kids and young adults we could be learning from them. Learning how they build fellowship with like minded individuals, regardless of what race or creed they are, if they play games, then they are cool!Continue reading “Re-Connecting Families Through ‘Gaming’”
My View Today….
As some of you may be aware my youngest daughter has Crohns Disease, a debilitating auto immune disease that attacks the bowel. Since having Crohns she has also developed psoriasis and chronic sinusitis more auto immune diseases. To say life is a bit tough for her is an understatement. She has 3 children and luckily a very supportive husband who does whatever it takes to help make life a bit easier for her.
So today is infusion day. Every 6 weeks we have to drive an hour away to the hospital where her specialist team is. She is one of the worst cases they have seen so she is pretty famous amongst these doctors. She was given misdiagnosis after misdiagnosis at our local hospital for a year until she almost died and was sent by ambulance to a better hospital. I believe God intervened there and got her the help she so desperately needed.Continue reading “My View Today….”
The Not So Glamour Part of Farming
While we have the most beautiful sunsets, and we have these wide open spaces and plenty of nooks and crannies to explore, farming definitely has its ugly side.
Breeding cattle is like anything, it’s awesome while everything flows, cattle have feed, calving easily, calves are healthy but then…..BOOM…. crap happens and you have a dying calf, mother with no milk, and humans trying ever so desperately to save it. In the end it’s kinder to the calf to euthanise it and end the suffering of its tiny body. It used to affect me terribly, and even though I still hate it, I can look past myself and do what’s best for the calf.Continue reading “The Not So Glamour Part of Farming”
We hear a lot about grandmothers and Nannee’s and how kids love to visit their grandmothers but very little is usually mentioned about the grandfathers. Like my grandkids always say Nannee’s Place, lets go to Nannee’s, can we stay at Nannee’s, it’s never their grandfather. Well I think this picture says a thousand words as to the impact a grandfather can have on their grandchildren, especially their grand daughters. They can teach them things they wish they would have taught their kids, they can give advice from many years experience, they have a different perspective on life that parent doesn’t have yet. Grandparents, including grandfathers are an integral part of a child’s life especially if they have a good one like my grandchildren have. My husband adores his grandkids, would literally do anything for them. He loves to teach them about the cows, how to work the dogs, the land and good manners, which these days is lacking. He is very gentle with them and firm when needed. The kids adore him, he gives them safety, security and love which is something I never got as a child. It’s comforting to know that I married a man nearly 40 years ago holds a tonne of values and warmth, that will be passed on to our next 2 generations.
Dieting and Mindset
So, I started a new diet this week……started it and finished it on the same day, how clever am I! I gotta say dieting is waaaaay worse than giving up smoking ever was.
I smoked for most of my life and by the end I was smoking 50 plus cigarettes a day. I barely ate anything unless it was junk food, I rarely drank water and I drank way too much coffee. I was stick thin as opposed to now, my skin was gaunt and my lungs were so weak, the perfect picture of health really. So when the time came to give it up I went against all the rules and replaced nicotine with sugar!
It’s been 8 years this year since I gave up and now in my early 50’s I think its time to knock some of this weight off and get some form of healthy happening in my body. I thought going keto would be easy, or paleo, but both proved to be no good for me, I could always make an excuse on those diets why I could eat certain food (sweets). Sugar is in everything even our water. It’s no wonder we have such a hard time giving it up. I am going to try again but there is absolutely no point unless my head is right. Mindset is EVERYTHING when giving up an addiction so I have learned from experience. When I gave up smoking it was about my 20th attempt, every other time I wasn’t ready, every other time I had an excuse to KEEP smoking and then after my youngest brother died, I had an excuse to STOP smoking. I never wanted to put my children through that trauma when it could be avoided. So over the next few weeks I am going to focus on getting my head around not eating sweets and teach my mind that sugar is not comfort it is death to my system that I am trying so hard to keep toxins out of.
How am I going to get my mind right? Not really sure about that yet, I can’t remember what I did with the ciggies, I think I just kept busy and used sheer brute strength to get through the tough bits. Trouble is I am a lot older and don’t have that strength anymore. Prayer will play a big part but physically I will get some healthy food that doesn’t taste like crunchy cardboard and trick my body into thinking “hmmm this isn’t too bad.” Essential oils will play a big role in keeping me calm of course and working will keep me physically active. I reckon I’ve got this, but I will let you now!
KIDS GOT THE FLU? HERE’S WHAT YOU CAN DO….
You know this whole Covid19 has got the world into such a state that, you now have mother’s too frightened to take their kids for medical attention because chances are they will be tested for the virus, which in turn could return a fake positive, which then in turn will result in your child being taken off you and put into an isolation facility of which you have no access. The amount of TOTAL BS surrounding these so called safety protocols is like nothing we have ever seen and at best are questionable. WHY are they taking children off their mothers?? Why can’t mothers stay with their children? There is a case here in Australia just this past week, that a new born baby needed medical treatment in a different state, that states borders are closed so this newborn baby was flown to the hospital for treatment, and the mother isn’t allowed to accompany her baby. This is such total crap I cannot even deal. So in order to avoid the soon to be one world government crock of crap that this covid circus is, lets keep the kids well!
The first thing we need to do is look at diet. Our food is so heavily laced with chemicals, disguised as flavorings, colorings and “nutrition”. Of course that is bogus and causing weakness in our immune systems especially that of our kids. So get them off the sugary, processed crappy foods and make your own where possible. Mums who work, I know this is very daunting but it’s going to be worth it to not have some moron medical officer come and take your children if their nose starts running! Introduce fruit & veg in a way that looks interesting and don’t forget to wash your fruit and veg first. Young Living has a vegetable soak that we use to get rid of any chemical residue on our fruit & veg. Home baking is far better for your whole family, it tastes better, it looks better and it doesn’t come wrapped in plastic, so it isn’t leaching dangerous chemicals into your food. Make some gummy lollies, get some cool moulds off ebay and then make some gummies, you will be surprised how easy this is and how much the kids will love them. Food choice needs to be high on the priority list, it will take a bit of extra time but once you are used to it, it will get easier.
The next thing, if at all possible, get the kids off devices and outside. Vitamin D plays a big role in the health of our bodies. Fresh air can do wonders for our mental health, our skin, our lungs. Get in some dirt, grass or sand with your bare feet, I know it sounds undignified to be walking around in bare feet but recent scientific research has shown that ‘Grounding’ is beneficial for inflammation, cardiovascular disease, muscle damage, chronic pain, and mood. I know when I used to feel particularly stressed my husband would take me for a drive up the bush and we would just get out and sit in nature and honestly, it would completely rejuvenate me. The forest/native bush is such an amazing place, the energy, the freshness you will not get anywhere else. Kids love running around in nature if you can get them out there. My eldest daughter lives on a farm and regularly takes the kids for bush walks, and my youngest daughter always bring hers kids out to our farm for some fresh air. It is one of the best things you can do for your kids and it’s free!
Essential oil protocols can be used daily for prevention of any bugs floating around at school and teaching your children good hand hygiene will save a lot of sickness heartache and sleepless nights.
At the end of the day your kids will still get sick, but the severity and length of time they are ill will be significantly shortened. Treating ours & our kids bodies well, will result in it’s ability to expel any virus or disease quicker than if the body was bogged down with toxins. To me it’s worth getting children healthy, it’s worth not having the government taking your kids off you, it’s worth doing to avoid the anxiety of what this world is up to next. I know this will be tough mums, but having someone take your child off you will be tougher!
Crypto Currency, Are You A Dabbler?
Well I can certainly say that I am a huge dabbler in the crypto world. I have missed out on huge opportunity for lack of knowledge on this unusual form of currency. Way way back I remember being offered the opportunity to buy bitcoin when it was about $8 a coin. Of course me in all my wisdom told this person off for trying to shuffle a scam onto me and I walked away. But the crappier thing was that my husband and I invested in a dead currency the Iraqi Dinar, this was going to be the lifesaver of all lifesavers. It was to revalue and make us all billionaires, so we sank a tonne of money into it. Can you imagine the stupidity of this now. We gave up the opportunity to buy bitcoin that DID in fact make a lot of people millionaires and more, for the opportunity to wait for 10 years, get no return on our money, and sell it back for a total loss. People are still buying this scam and its been over 10 years now, the same information about how “it’s happening this weekend” is consistently re-hashed every few weeks. My friend who go me into this is STILL waiting and believing. It’s really sad. You live and learn.
These days bitcoin is over $14k AUD and we have invested a small amount into that and Ripple, and a weeny bit on Dogecoin. I have no idea what I am doing in this realm but somewhere along the line we will make a profit. If you know what you are doing there is a lot of money to be made, if you don’t, there is even more to be lost. Investing in stocks, currency or whatever is risky if you don’t know what you are doing, and if you listen to the latest ‘guru’ on the webs, well lets just say from experience, that’s a really bad idea. Do some proper research, listen to podcasts, get some advice from reputable brokers. Avoid the loss and do the homework. Joining these things to get rich quick is not going to work!
