Louise Malbon-Reddix's curator insight, April 6, 2013 12:58 AM

Hello to all, April is Alcohol Awareness Month.  Please look out for our teens and our elders!! They are the most at risk groups for this. Both the teens and the elders try to hide their Alcohol abuse! Elders are at high risk for injury, especially falls due to the loss of equilibrium with drinking. And they do not heal as fast as before.  Our Teens are at risk for Alcohol Posioining as they aren't supposed to be drinking and can't exactly take it home to save for later, so they consume it all at once.  this puts them at risk for Alcohol Poisoning and death! 

 

Be kind toothers too, we do not know allthat they are going through. give a word of encouragement when you can! This is what I am trying to do in the video below!

TGIF & The Weekend

 

While TGIF is a most familiar acronym, has this day always represented the "end" of the work week?  In today’s society, “weekends” are taken for granted. However, that luxury has not always been recognized. The work week was once Monday through Saturday with work, especially on farms, starting before the sun came up and not ending until sundown. Jobs ‘back in the day’ consisted of positions, such as …

Mega Partnering VII | Welcome Mega Partnering VII | Welcome

Pictures are always proof, and I was able to upload this picture of myself with JT Foxx at the GrowThink event I attended in Californina in 2012. The years go fast, so it was either 2011 0r 2012. As you all know by now, I have been on a journey through widowhood and trying to recover from the sudden loss of my late husband.  I wanted you to know that I have been actively trying to recover and this is one of the events that I did attend to garner some information on how to get my business up and running off the ground and to get a brether from some of the grief I have been going through. As a writer, you know I am always going to tell you a full story. 

This story of when I met JT Foxx in person began in April 2012.  I became serious about launching Victory Road Wellness Center after the death of my precious husband in 2009.  What a journey to say the least!!!  And I soon discovered that I was as greeen as they come and didn't have all the understanding that I needed to accomplish the same.  So I set out to learn!!!  I hired the Prosper Company in Utah to help train me in some business essentials. And soon after that,  Mr. Dave Lavinsky of GrowThink got my attention and off to LA I went to learn from him about business building.  And in the afternoon, Mr. Foxx was introduced. I had already spent my available funds and couldn't  go to that  Mega Partnering.  Now here is another opportunity for me to go, and again, I find myself caught off guard, but really wanting to go, because JT and his team have really, really touched my life.  I attended the DC leg of the tour and really was blessed to have been able to attend it for just a donation to charity!  I learned so much and most of all, I mean the bestest of all was the attention that was paid to me during those two days! Welcome as a  breath of fresh air.  No condemnation, just total acceptance and felt an earnest desire and their passion for my success!! Connected in now with Facebook and LinkedIn  with the presenter for the Marketing, I am so touched and impressed! It is personal to me now and I would certainly enjoy having an opportunity to go and grow and do more.

I am sharing this, because sharing is what I do for one.  I want to be able to help someone on their way through this journey called LIFE. Sometimes up and sometimes down and in my cae for sure almost level to the ground!!!! Yes this is the me who wrote,  Stand In Your Anointment - This Too shall Pass! And  to let you all know, even if I don't get to go that this is an awesome opportunity! And I am as they say looking for miracles at this time to be able to pick up the phone and say I am going! 

Check this opportunity out now, if you can!!! It comes highly recommended by me!!!!!  Let JT Foxx and his team take you through with success.  They know the latest and best information in my humble opinion at this point.   I even learned a lot about myself from just listeneing to the coaching call with JT and his 9 figure Coach Meir!!! 

 If you decide you are going, let me know!!!

Louise Malbon-Reddix's curator insight, March 5, 2013 2:31 PM

By now, most of you know that I lost the love of my life Richard Reddix Sr.  And by all of these posts of mine that you have read, I am sure that by now I am determined for others too to go on this walk and journey of widowhood on their own terms.  And not just widows and widowers, but for all going throgh this journey and time of bereavement. I was happy to find another way throgh which to discuss this grief process and to help make some sense of it. It is an Exisential Crisis in an Exisental Vacuum!  Wikipedia defines it as An existential crisis is a moment at which an individual questions the very foundations of his or her life: whether his or her life has any meaning, purpose or value. An existential crisis is often provoked by a significant event in the person's life — marriage, separation, major loss, the death of a loved one, a life-threatening experience, a new love partner, psychoactive drug use, adult children leaving home, reaching a personally-significant age (turning 20, turning 30, turning 40, etc.), etc.

 

It is an exisential vaccum, as not everyone will understand all that you are going through, even if they themselves have suffered a loss, it is still not their current reality and to staya there with you where you are at this time is uncomfortable for them.  And when you don't do your grief as they have thought you should grive, anger and hard feelings can occur on both or either side.  It just takes time, is the only way I know to say it to make this thing easier for all involved.

 

I was fortunate to happen upon this podcast by Mary Cimiluca featuring a  Doctor who is located right here in Maryland; Dr. Jay Levinson who indeed is an expert in this very subject of Grievieng. Now the whole podcast resonated with me; as it helped me to see I was right on target with my grieving, as everybody does it in thier own way!!! And especially so as he discusses a woman who it took 8 years to come back to a sense of life and reality after the loss of her husband.  This thing is painful, is all I can say. I have to say here that if it wasn't for my faith in God and my family and friends... I had an anchor so to speak, yet I was profoundly hurt and in so much pain after the sudden and so unexpected death of my husband. Thank You to my family and friends, for giving me what you could to help me through this time. Let me also apologize if I overtaxed and worried you.  I had to go through though.  Not around, but through!!!

The link for the podcast follows, and I truly hope you take a listen as he really does describe this bereavement process well.  He talks about all of the stages and his voice is yet soothing and you too will get the feeling as I did that He knows of that he speaks.

 

https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/talk-sense-radio/id442061784

 

#19 Dr. Jay Levinson discusses Grief and Bereavement.  Dr. Levinson was the assistant for Dr. Frankyl for many years.

 

Certainly I do not want anyone to be out there on their own.  And how do you know when it ti stime to get help any way.  Here is a little tool that may help you to understand yourself a little better. And if you need help, I will say here again, I am as close as the phone, Facebook page, Twitter, and dial 911 for those extreme cases!!! Don't wait or be ashamed.  Did I mention that shame too is a part of this grief process?

For 2013 as we all switch off our lights, we want the focus to be on the kind of energy we use. Because to create a better future for our planet we need to move away from dirty fossil fuels and onto clean green renewable energy which works with the awesome power of nature, not against it.

The little 'lady' in the picture is "Lilli - a German post-war, sassy and ambitious cartoon character that had no reservations talking about sex."
