Remembering President John Kennedy 54 Years Later

Remembering President John Kennedy 50 Years Later. By Cherokee Billie. Click picture to read article
For those of us who were alive in 1963 we can never forget Friday November 22, 1963. President Kennedy was greatly loved by so many and it was unbelievable that he could be cut down so quickly.

I was twelve years old and in junior high school when the announcement came over the intercom stating that the President had been shot. Everyone in the class got very quiet. Not much was said. An hour later the announcement came that the President was dead. It was difficult to believe because he was such a likable man. The teachers started crying and yet we stayed in school. Back then in Los Angeles California they didn’t send us home, even when it was a major tragedy. That afternoon when my mother picked me up at school I asked her if she had heard about the president being dead, of course she had.

Holiday Survival Guide for Chronic Illness Sufferers!

The holidays can be a joyous time for so many.  Those that suffer from chronic illness can find the holidays overwhelming.  Every day is a struggle just to survive and then the pressure of everything surrounding the holidays starting from Thanksgiving till New Year’s can cause an already depressed chronically ill person to be devastated.  They know they can’t keep up and do everything that they would like to with their families and friends.  It’s not that a chronic ill person is antisocial; they just don’t have the energy to do day to day things and the holiday’s puts enormous pressure on the person who can barely make it through each day. 

Here is A Survival List for Those Who Suffer from Chronic Illness.

  • Learn and discipline yourself to pace yourself. You do not have to keep up with every activity that is going on.  Do things at your own pace.  If you can’t do something tell yourself that it’s okay and let it go.
  • Plan ahead. Write out a list of events coming up and carefully analyze what is a priority and what is not.  From there you can decide what you want to do the most.  Do not be persuaded by others that you have to do something.  Think for yourself and know that again whatever decision you make is right for you.
  • Do not be afraid to ask for help. If you would like to cook something special, but do not have the energy to do so ask a friend or family member to help you prepare your special dish.  If you have trouble walking do not hesitate to ask someone to help move you with a wheelchair.  There’s nothing wrong with being in a wheelchair.  If sitting up for long periods of time tires you do not be afraid to ask if you can lie down and rest for a while.  Whatever you need ask for help.
  • Be realistic. Know your limitations.  Do not attempt to do something that is beyond your physical capabilities.  Many people who are chronically ill have trouble with this concept.  They want to still be able to do the things they used to.  You don’t have to.  Look at your life realistically.
  • Get enough sleep or rest. The winter months can be hard on a chronically ill person to begin with and you need to make sure you get adequate sleep or rest.  Remember you do not have to make excuses or apologize to anyone for your loss of energy.  Always be yourself and people will either accept it or they will reject it, but what they think is really none of your business.  You live what is right for you.
  • Eat real food. Processed and foods filled with chemicals are not good for an already chronically ill body.  It’s tempting to eat lots of the holiday goodies, and it’s okay to have some, but keep it to a small amount.  You need all the strength you can get and do your best to eat whole healthy foods.  Protein foods increase your energy.  Remember carbohydrates bring down the energy. 
  • Shop online! One of the best inventions in the world has been the Internet for shopping.  Amazon Prime can be a godsend for those who are chronically ill.  You can have packages sent direct to your loved ones and be wrapped with a note from you.  Think of all the energy you save by doing this.  Also it saves on car usage and gasoline.  If you want you can have your purchases sent to you and have the fun of wrapping and decorating the packages how you would like to.  This is one of the fun projects you can do that gives you enjoyment and you can do it at your own pace!
  • Do not feel guilty! Because you cannot do all the things you want to and you may not be able to attend an event that is important to a family member or friend, do not let it get you down.  Do not feel guilty.  You have a chronic illness and you are doing the very best that you can.  Say out loud every day “I Am Doing the Best I Can” and eventually you will start believing it and not feel guilty when you have to say no.
  • Stretch your muscles. You may not be able to exercise, but you can stretch your muscles and that will help keep them limber.  Before you get out of bed each morning take time to stretch all of your muscles.  This is going to help you move better than normal.  If it’s possible do some light walking, but if you cannot stretching your muscles is going to improve your circulation.  Also it’s very important that every morning you do 5 minutes of deep breathing exercises.  Deep breathing increases the oxygen in the body and the brain and will help you to feel better.  It can reduce depression.  So remember breathe!
  • Learn to say NO! There is nothing wrong with saying no I cannot do this or that.  People may not understand, but that is their problem.  You have to realize what’s important for you and do not feel obligated to do something when you know that you cannot.  Doing this is going to empower you in your chronic illness and believe it or not people will start to respect the fact that you cannot do something.  No is a powerful word.  Use that power.
  • Listen To Music! Music speaks to the soul and can help you feel peaceful and relaxed.  Choose whatever music makes you feel good.  It can be Christmas music, classical music, or rock and roll.  Let the music take you to different places!  This is a great way to relax and enjoy the season.

I know that these tips will help you get through the holidays better than ever before.  The reason I know is I live with chronic illness and I’ve had to learn to do these things throughout my journey in life.

I wish you the very best holiday ever!

If you need encouragement and help contact me and I will give you guidance that will give you the tools you need to move forward during the holiday season.

Honoring All Veterans

11 hour

Greater love has no one than this that he lay down his life for his friends.

American Heroes – Thank you for your sacrifice!

No matter what country you live in it seems that War is the common denominator of civilizations. More than history books people’s personal stories captures the essence of wars and transmits emotional legacies to succeeding generations.

For me Veterans Day always reminds me of my father who served in World War Two in the South Pacific.  He was a sergeant in the army.  On one mission his entire platoon was killed and he was shot repeatedly, but played dead and was the only survivor of his platoon. He received The Purple Heart and he was given only six months to live because of his injuries.  Being the amazing man that he was he survived and lived many decades beyond the war.  It never left his heart and soul.  He always displayed the flag on national holidays and was proud to be an American.

I think of the young men of my generation that served in Vietnam.  So many did not come back and those that did were never the same.  These young men did what they had to do, and unfortunately were not treated with great respect when they returned home.  So many suffered and still do from Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome.  Back then it was not recognized and now these older men are still living with the effects of the war.

I pray for all Troops that serve our country worldwide today.  I pray for their families that support and worry about them.  I pray for their protection physically and mentally.

Most Importantly I Pray That There Be No More Wars!

Many blessings,

The Perfect Christmas!

Holiday Scents.jpg

Since Christmas is just around the corner, I thought I’d show you these all natural candles.  I am always referring to lighting candles for prayers and to honor those that you love who have passed on.  These heavenly fragrances will keep your spirits lifted and bless all that come in contact with them.  It’s the perfect time to change the spiritual environment in your home.  There will be no winter blues when you keep your home filled with these lovely candles!

Even before all your Christmas decorating is done, you can get your home in the holiday spirit with the perfect scented candle, aromatherapy, aroma beads, and diffusers.  Treat someone to a festive Christmas scented candle this winter. Rooms have a special holiday glow and always look beautiful when filled with lit candles.

I love these candles and they are 100% soy wax with cotton wicks (contains no lead). They have no dyes either so they burn safer, cleaner, and longer than paraffin wax candles. They are great for people with asthma or allergies.  Never have I sold products from my website before.  I am absolutely sold on the quality, pricing, and beauty that these products bring to you and your home.

The benefits of the Wickless Candles
-No open flame so great if you have kids or pets
-You can scoop wax out and mix with other scents
-Use on lanterns, hurricane and 2 in 1 warmers in a wide variety of decorations

These candles are so affordable and if you have a tight budget this holiday season you can easily make your own gifts by using glass ornaments and scooping out the wax into smaller containers and filling the ornaments with candles and beads.  The possibilities are endless.

ORNMENTS

You can also check out all the holiday diffusers, aromatherapies, beads, and stuffed animals with aromatherapy. 

I have always liked diffusers because they release those natural fragrances for endless hours throughout your home or office.  Remember clearing the energy in your office or work place is just as important as in your home.

The stuffed toys with aroma beads are wonderful for a child of any age and can be quite calming depending on the essential fragrance you use.

May you have a blessed Christmas,

It’s Time to Move the Clocks Backwards

Fall Back Daylight Savings Time

It’s time to “fall back” before you go to bed Saturday to return to Standard Time.

But many wonder why we have to go through this rigmarole each spring and fall, beyond the important reminder of changing the batteries in our smoke detectors.

Daylight saving time began in Europe during World War I to conserve energy, and then briefly migrated to the United States in 1918. It became a fixture in America after World War II.

The theory goes that by reducing the amount of indoor light used before bedtime, less electricity is used. A recent federal study found this to be the case. However, researchers have said the savings are negligible in modern, 24/7, computer-driven world, which I completely agree with.

In any case, synchronize with your community. Move clocks back an hour at 2 a.m. Sunday November 5, 2017.

The sun will rise and set earlier. But there will also be less sunlight for outdoor activities and shopping. More cars will be out at night, when visibility isn’t as good. Many people will vote after work Tuesday when it’s dusk or darker.

Back in 1972 it was a major energy crisis, which exists still today, and the government stopped the time change for two years. I found myself feeling physically and mentally better without these adjustments to our lives. It worked really well in 1972 and I think it would work the same way if we continued leaving the time the same year round. This is just my opinion.

Where do you fit in the “spring forward, fall back” time continuum? I would love to hear your opinions.

As for me I will be out of sync until I reprogram my body to accept this change.  😦

Fall blessings,
Cherokee Billie
