UNITED Thoughts on Finding Common Ground and Advancing Common Good by U. S. Senator and 2020 presidential candidate Cory Booker is an amazing inspiring true story of abundance, challenges, tragedies, solutions, successes, togetherness, earth, justice, grace, decency, kindness, and love.
A big turtle climbed out of lake to lay her annual eggs then climbed back in lake and swam away.
I put a pinwheel on her nest to try to keep the crows from digging up and eating the eggs.
It is a woman’s right and power to control her own body and a personal decision whether or not to give birth especially given that rape and sexual assault are often not reported for personal reasons.
The easiest way to be in control of ones body is with nutrition. Eat fruits, vegetables, and seeds for wellness of mind and body, strength, balanced hormones, and a healthy planet.
High dose Vitamin C or fruits and veggies high in Vitamin C every hour for the first 24-48 hours can prevent implantation of fertilized egg into the uterus.
Some activities can put a pregnancy at risk such as vigorous exercise, water skiing, jacuzzi, or use of a water slide.
It’s estimated that half of pregnancies end in natural spontaneous abortion when thebody determines that the embryo is not viable due to timing of fertilization and deterioration of egg or sperm. If menstruation is late and flow is heavy it may be a natural spontaneous abortion.
A service dog can help with stress and bring protection, joy, and love. Yoga and self defense classes can help too.
Practice self care, be strong and well, stand for the human right to healthcare, and know that you have super power.
Happy Earth Day!
Here’s what I ate:

By my age I’ve learned two key relationship skills, the “I Statement” and otherwise avoiding “you”, that I try to use as much as possible.
The “I Statement” simply goes like this: “When you do/say __________, I feel _________.” We’re all entitled to our emotions and expressing them. This is a way to express feelings without provoking the other person or escalating matters.
Other than in an “I Statement”, try to avoid using the word, “you”, unless it’s a compliment. Otherwise it may very likely put the person you’re speaking to on the offensive. It’s just human nature.
I’ve found these two skills effective at creating peace, love, and harmony in relationships whether they be intimate, family, friends, or co-workers.
I’ve been using these for years and have had some success, but still have a ways to go (especially given my challenges). They take time to implement, so have patience and keep trying.
Peace, love, joy, best always.
