15 Million Pieces Of Clothing A Week Sent To Ghana


One of my first blog posts discussed the pandemic of new clothing returns. The “no questions asked” return policy by retailers created mountains of waste in landfills across the world. A large amount of the clothing sitting in dumps are in perfect condition. Today’s video on donated clothing by CBS left me more heartbroken. Unsuspecting Americans trying to help by donating used items to charity are going to be quite upset when they see their clothing has not ended up where we thought. Each week 15 million pieces of used or near new clothing arrives in Ghana. 40% of those items end up in that country’s garbage dump continuing the cycle of waste. Ghana receives millions of low-end brand clothing while the high-end clothing makes it way to Europe. So, what is the actual number of charity clothing leaving the US each week if we only have the numbers for Ghana?? We have to do better America! We need to start wearing our clothes longer. I have made an effort myself the past few years to not throw a piece of clothing away or donate that cute top until there is a hole in the item. The wasteful mentality needs to end to help our earth. I used the word pandemic at the beginning of this article because I truly feel humans are a pandemic disease to Mother Earth. Fashionistas across the world, its more than ok to be seen or photographed in the same dress twice in one year 😦

Deformed Carotid Artery Forced Dietary Changes


After a two decades of mysterious illness and random superficial blood clots that took years away from the poker tables, I finally have answers. However, with those answers has come a gut punching reality that I have to make changes or suffer the morbid consequences.

My first round of clots I took me down in my mid-twenties. At first, the doctors brushed me off as too young and diagnosed anxiety. I had stroke like symptoms followed by horrible migraines that would come and go with no rhyme or reason. I suffered a missed miscarriage that year. Pathology found a massive clot in the cord. Suddenly, ignoring me turned into respect, apologies and testing began.

Blood work showed Lupus Anticoagulant which is a clotting disorder that comes and goes. I started taking Aspirin and do annual blood work ever since to make sure levels are normal. Things were great for a long time after they figured things out. However, in my mid-thirties, I ended up with another round of clots. While playing poker in a state championship my body took a painful turn. My leg hurt out of no where and I had trouble focusing at the final table. I finished in 4th place, I’m so bummed because I actually think I would have won had my leg not started cramping.

Thanks goodness my friend has access to a private prop jet. We ladies flew over in luxury which saves so much time. When I got home doc immediately went to work. He knew a clot formed based upon my symptoms but the ultra sound of my leg showed nothing. My Lupus Anticoagulant came back negative as well. The symptoms got worse over the next few weeks. After more labs and an MRI they found the superficial clots had traveled to my chest. Thank God the clots were not deep vein. Where the hell did these clots originate became the million dollar question?

I flew with a model, a private casino owner and a poker tour owner. They all are used to flying. I have airplane phobia so I hugged the nose for luck to the amusement of the other ladies.

The vascular surgeon ran a CT scan of my head and neck. He ended up finding a deformed carotid artery. Due to the artery being deformed the area was unusually clogged at a young age. The odds of having an issue like this are rare. Like why cant I hit the low odd chance of winning the Main Event of WSOP instead 😊 Believe it or not doc said I was very lucky to find this issue young. Another decade down the line and I would have probably dropped dead of a stroke or heart attack.

A twenty year mystery has now been solved but digs up more stress and issues. Doc wants me on a cholesterol med but Id like a chance to try and reverse the stenosis. I hate pills, I like to handle things naturally and with hard work. We argued for a few weeks over statins and I even emailed a release of liability should anything happen to me. The doctors say there’s 0% chance to reverse stenosis but I at least want to try before going on a pill the rest of my life. Especially a pill with a bunch of side effects. We eventually found neutral ground. I have one year to show a change in my artery or Ill go on the statin.

Now the hard work begins to end a lifetime of fatty recipes, over meat indulgence and Holiday food fests. I love steak, I love prime rib, I freaking love bacon but the new reality screams stop. My favorite foods will kill me at a young age if I do not stop eating them. Painfully, I started to research Veganism. As a family we watched the movie The Game Changers and I read a lot of university studies online. After a week of research there’s no way I can completely convert to being a vegetarian. There are some parts of the diet that I do not think are healthy in the long run. Humans need balance and moderation. I also want to enjoy my meals.

I chose Pescatarian life with eggs. We shall see how this journey goes. After researching Mediterranean lifestyle, they are the only culture to actually reverse artery stenosis due to the high vegetable and fish intake. The process shouldn’t be too hard as I already love all Mediterranean foods. However, what’s Thanksgiving going to be like this year? I make a kick ass turkey with sides. Envisioning Christmas with no prime rib is like having no Christmas tree! I really hope in a few months these emotions will not be an issue. Anyone here an ex meat lover who has successfully converted?

Positive Thought or Hard Work


“Be vigilant about your thoughts,” a powerful quote to remember during difficult times. Covid has impacted us all in one way or another. I think each of us has a negative story to tell from the past year. Keeping control of the mind and not letting negative media consume us all is of utmost importance right now.

We’ve all heard many times before that “the spirit of heaven lies within”, “what you think about, you bring about”, “replay your dream movie in your mind and that dream will come true”. As I get older and look back on my life, I’m starting to feel that positive thoughts followed by positive actions, absolutely leads to success. Maintaining a positive mindset leads the way through dark times. Control over thought dictates who wins or loses, who holds it together and who falls apart, and who lives in hell but walks through the time period with strength.

I grew up very poor and now live an upper middle-class life without a college education. Both my husband and I took a few college classes but never earned a degree. We were raised to work hard and success will follow. The two of us busted our asses to get where we are today. Looking back, I do not believe our success boils down to all hard work. We’ve spread a lot of good, helped a lot of people and tried to maintain positivity during awful years.

Since we were teens in a tiny town, my husband and I have tried to have a positive attitude with everything. We treat people well even when they don’t deserve it, and have tried to grow and learn from our own bad decisions. We also try to pull something positive from situations out of our control that beat us down. I swear life is five steps forward and four steps back, but positive mind control and many deep breaths push us through.

On the flip side, I’ve seen people work equally as hard and not hit goals due to mind set. Friends who because they did not achieve their dreams boil my family’s success down to luck. That infuriates me because I know how calculated we have been for two decades. How much thought, prayer and visualization went into many of our financial decisions. We put in the time, hard work and set up positive relationships. When dream moments landed at our feet, all the prep enabled us to receive the situation. Many times, we did miss out on opportunities because of lack of prep or poor decisions. Sometimes we waved opportunity by because we chose our kids over money. After a hell of a lot of patience and making life adjustments, when a new opportunity came along now, we are ready. Is that work, luck, or remaining positive?

Perhaps the words “you are just lucky” is insight as to why people with poor inner dialogue do not hit their goals. The statement explodes negativity and reflects vibration inside their soul. A person cannot be successful projecting that type of energy. Maybe winners in life, even the not nice successful people, have a positive inner dialogue that sets the individual up for success. My husband’s favorite statement is the six P’s, proper, planning, prevents, piss poor performance. Now add positive inner dialogue into that formula and there’s no way to lose. Even if you’re an egomaniac millionaire, if the inner dialogue is positive towards themselves, they can be a hardworking asshole and still achieve great success.

Jealousy never produces good feedback

We recently just had a real estate agent screw us over. The situation took me down mentally for a few months and brought out a side of me that I haven’t seen in a while. This crook continues to sell home after home getting away with being deceitful to clients. When people see him in person or on his flyers, he exudes confidence. The perfectly manicured salt and pepper hair, the expensive suits and pearly white smile shouts confidence. I can only imagine this agents inner dialogue with himself. If the conversation is what I think it is, then no wonder he’s a huge success in the area. The man works hard and thinks quite highly of himself; he has a no fail mentality.

On our end of the situation, after this greedy agent screwed us over, I wanted to sell our dream home we just moved into and start over. We worked for years to get to this moment yet this man reduced me to tears and feeling defeated. He robbed us of the joy and magic that a home owner should have when they move into a house. After a few months we picked ourselves back up and turned his lemons into lemonade. Now I want to thank the guy for the opportunity he left on the table that we did not see initially. My negative reaction to his behavior made me blind to the situation around me.

After a shift in thought the opportunity became quite clear. Down the road when we sell, we will come out on top. Some will call it luck; I call the situation the power of positive thinking. Had we sold after all our bad discoveries on this property, we would have missed a huge window of opportunity. In the end, after all I’ve been through, I believe our attitude dictates who succeeds and who does not. Humans are the creators of personal destinies good or bad. The choice resides within ourselves.

Stop Doomsday Prophesies


On the night of last month’s December 21st Great Conjunction the world was supposed to end. A pastor in the United States has yet again ruined the brilliance of the Mayans and their historical astrological calendar with doomsday prophesies. This minister claimed that our modern calendar is out of alignment with the Mayan calendar by a whopping eight years. There was a mistake made on the December 2012 prediction, humanity would cease to exist on December 21, 2020 instead.

Now that things are awkward at church for this person. At what point in life do doomsday predicters stop embarrassing themselves? Do these people keep predicting because they want to go down in history as the individual who accurately pinpointed the end of the world? However, if the prediction comes true will there be any history left for these people’s names to be written down in? Would anyone have time to care as new civilizations are being built by scattered survivors? I’m trying to understand the logic in these repeated predictions.  

New criteria should be set up for these ministers. After experiencing a doomsday dream which we all have had in our lives, even if the images feel hair raising real, do not broadcast the subconscious thoughts unless God speaks during the day as well. Then take the criteria a step farther and wait until God has spoken twice during the day and a few more times during sleep. Noah didn’t have one dream with God when being directed to build the arc, there were four conversations 😊

I believe that when the creator of the universe decides to end us all, the topic will not be up for debate. The creator of the universe will make a grand booming entrance and leave a trail of destruction that will scare the shit out of us all before we pass on.

My young sons decided to help out doomsday prophets using their elementary math skills. Counting back to the time when Jesus left the earth and working in conjunction with alien theorists. If Jesus after rising again traveled home to Orion’s Belt. Based upon my boys inexperienced speed of light calculations, Jesus will return between the years 2400-2600 if He made a very quick round trip. If their calculations are correct, humanity has a little bit more time to get our act together before Judgement Day and will hopefully give doomsday ministers a much needed prediction rest.

RIP Vince Reffet


The world lost an amazing human this week, who in my opinion rivaled if not exceeded the courage of astronauts. This video still gives me chills. To strap up and test this mini aircraft with nothing but a helmet and what looks like a wetsuit on, takes super human courage. I believe Vince helped move humanity another step forward with these jetpack tests and deserves to be honored. Thank you for your sacrifice.

Television Influence On Human Subconscious


At the beginning of quarantine I began reading the book, Becoming Supernatural, by Dr. Joe Dispenza. Doc dives deep into meditation and the science behind how the practice can change our lives. If you do not like reading, there is a TV version of the book hosted by Dr. Joe on Prime. I’ve bounced back and forth from the show to the book when I need to visually understand the science he writes about. Within the pages of this book are amazing thought provoking realizations about our society. I loved the chapter on media and advertising, really opened my eyes.

“For years, I’ve been thinking about how we’re all constantly programmed into self-limited beliefs; that is, believing that we need something outside of us to change how we feel inside of us. This is, after all, what advertising is all about-the never-ending dependence on, and consumption of, external sources to make us feel happy or better. This belief, which reminds us of our separation from wholeness, is incessantly ingrained in us through the media, television shows, commercials, the news, video games, websites, and sometimes even music. Its a simple strategy, really: If you can suspend people in the feeling of lack, fear, anger, opposition, prejudice, pain, sadness, and anxiety, they remain dependent on someone or something outside of them to make those feelings go away. If you remain in a perpetual state of busyness, and are always preoccupied in survival emotions, you never actually have the opportunity to believe in yourself.”

No, I did not get paid to write this.

How Quantum Computing Will Change Our Health


This interview with Deep Prasad and Regina blew my mind! I have so many questions and can not wait until part two. I had never heard of quantum computing in terms of health until this interview. They dive into other areas quantum computing will change as well. Hopefully this technology will be used for good. If only I could be here in 100 years to see how this all plays out 🙂

Alien Rapture


Ancient Alien theorists believe that humanity was created or upgraded by aliens. If this theory were true, that would make our God an alien lifeform traveling throughout the universe. There are other groups who do not believe aliens created humanity but believe we are not alone. This month, both CNN and FOX reported that the Pentagon will start investigating UFO phenomenon. Apparently, unidentified craft have become an issue they no longer can ignore. Classified Navy pilot footage showing pilots encountering odd objects flying around or directly at our military planes was released a few years ago. Alien enthusiasts all over the world do come together on one belief, that world leaders already know of alien existence on earth. UFOs are getting pretty hard to hide with most of humanity running around recording their daily activities. Is it possible with the Pentagons press release that we are in a slow countdown to disclosure, or what the church calls revelation?

If this theory is true, I don’t blame leaders for keeping us in the dark for so long. Half of humanity would lose their minds if they found out aliens were at the controls all along. A countdown to disclosure would have to take place over a period of decades so citizens can process the shock properly. What if Roswell and all sightings over the past eighty years were leaders slowly planting seeds to prep humanity for a big reveal? Aliens coming forth as life guides to man since our creation would rock religion to its core.  

I was thinking about what that day would look like. Back in March as the government shut down the world due to Rona, billions of citizens had eyes glued to video screens. All of us watched and waited each day for leaders to stand at a podium and fill us in. I think it’s safe to say that as spring rolled on everyone around the world kept pinching themselves to see if this lockdown and meltdown of our world economy was really happening. We have never experienced a global event like Rona in our lifetimes. An alien disclosure press conference would for sure have the same effect if not worse.

Prior to disclosure day, I imagine humans would see more and more appearances of unknown craft in the sky. The numbers would increase over weeks keeping people’s eyes on the sky like a solar eclipse. Leaders would have to prepare the perfect speech in unity. The same carefully scripted message would have to be delivered to all at the same time. Finally, one sunny morning, we find our President yet again at a podium with our great American flag in the background. He or she asks us to not panic and be patient. The message is we are not alone and never have been. Leaders admit they have known about these beings but nothing could be done. The observers and guides of humanity are ready to reveal themselves. Humans have poisoned their bodies and spirit along with the earth, intervention must happen. The President is not alone at the podium. People have a hard time focusing on the speech because a lifeform humanity has never seen stands next to him or her. The human race has strayed far far away from the simple directions given to us thousands of years ago and like toddlers we need to be corrected.

I think it’s safe to say that most people would lose their minds! Phone lines jam as people start texting and calling loved ones. Should we run and hide? Where do we meet? People flood stores again in panic to gather food, supplies and most importantly toilet paper 😊 The wealthy franticly pack Louis Vuitton bags and board private jets fleeing to glamourous vault condos. The top one percent can safely watch the alien rapture from deep within the earth. What would a superior life form think of the non helpful actions of the wealthy as they live below the surface filling their belly’s with bubbly and caviar? Selfishly enjoying pool and hot tub time with the kids, throwing back shots of whiskey and glasses of wine as panic ensues above.

Those who do not have the means to flee inside mountain homes will find weapons, or are forced to helplessly wait. Cousin Bob up the road has lots of guns. Lets quickly go buy one and lock down. Some husbands will leave their families to go meet with the town mob to formulate a plan. Our government has lied and failed to protect us so action must happen. These men will defend their town and families at all cost, because the genetic human response to anything different or new is armed pandemonium. From mobs with torches of fire in one hand and pitch forks in the other generations ago to now shot guns and assault rifles. Most of humanity has responded to change or difference with violence for as long as we’ve existed.

A small group of humans see hope in this encounter. What if, just what if these beings are actually peaceful and here to help? What if humans are just too primitive and limited in brain power to figure out how to progress, because we cannot stop fighting over cave man ideas? We desperately need intervention no matter how much it scares us. Humanity needs a healthy leap or shove forward mentally and spiritually. Humans have so much potential but the greatness gets lost in religion and politics. We are creative species with great capability to love. We love our gadgets and fun time. However, through our creativity, tech and automation, we generated an unfathomable amount of waste throwing Mother Earth out of balance.

The beings explain that their ancestors left us directions in a book. They watched in annoyance as leaders manipulated their word over millennia creating generations of wars, famine and sadness. The beings explain how they sent great thinkers and peace bringers at different periods in time to try and guide us. Some of those mysterious guides also came with a warning of what would happen if when they return love, peace and order were not in place. Humans chose to kill one of the greatest preaching peace and shove aside many of those with philosophies that brought no monetary gain for our kings, queens and leaders.

The meaning of revelation is “a surprising and previously unknown fact, especially one that is made known in a dramatic way.” The Book of Revelation, the final book of The New Testament written thousands of years ago. The amount of time depends on your personal beliefs, but either way a very long time ago. The author of the book states that there will be a return of God our creator, a battle between good and evil, followed by a period of peace. The Bible also gives warning that severe punishment will come to those who are evil and there will be a day of reckoning when He returns.

Could this explain why evil goes unpunished in this world, because our creator is out space cruising and not back yet to take action? I picture the giant hand at the end of the Men in Black movie juggling all the worlds. The creator of the universe can not spend all His time saving a species who has been given so much time to figure life out; so perhaps punishment is coming when He or they arrive back and take a look at what’s been going on. The Bible mentions that evil gets thrown into the lake of fire. What if on disclosure day these beings read minds and see into hearts. They spend the next few weeks hunting down and neutralizing humans who are unreachable in the capacity of love and peace, finally letting good prevail like the end of the Bible. Matthew 24:40 references one person taken and one left. To me the passage is open. We don’t know if good or bad people are removed.

37But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 38For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 39And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 40Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 41Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 42Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. 43But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.

There are definitely parts of the Bible where the text clearly shows the ancients were struggling to describe not of this world encounters with an unknown entity. If I were the creator alien or not, I would be pissed at the state of my earth. Traveled for two thousand years, left simple guidance laid out in numerous texts, yet somehow humans missed the mark over and over again. Fighting over primitive beliefs that holds humanity back. Murdering, robbing one another. Gold and wealth have replaced Him as God. No peace, just chaos and suffering created by man himself. Id storm down on a pillar of fire or in my space buggy and start punishing the hell out of us too. What’s it gonna take??

Go Away Rona! Here’s 5 Positive Videos


This week has been exceptionally rough on the brain with the explosion in Beirut, around the world riots, gross politics, La Rona and yet another massive fire in California. Writing a deep post is just not in the cards this week. I usually spend a few hours on news channel websites searching for positive posts, it honestly takes that long. The task was very difficult today due to the flood of negative news. Shifting gears, I decided to focus on the things I enjoy.

  1. Watch the world’s strongest ladies fight monster ocean fish. Much respect given as I literally would have had a heart attack trying to catch these fish 😊 Stephanie Cohen holds the world record for a 402lb deadlift at 123lbs of body weight. Sarah Backman earned 27 titles arm wrestling and spent time on WWE. Sarah started competing at age 14! The insanely ripped Kristen Nun joined in on the fishing fun as well. She is a fitness and social media celebrity.

2. The worlds best golf shots never disappoint! The “Better than most” shot coined by the announcer blows me away!

Golf Focus

3. I miss live poker so so much. Bad beats are a huge part of the game, this video highlights a few. The Kelly vs Aaron hand is gut wrenching for any player who has scored an ace high flush. I’ve had something similar happen once in Vegas. I feel your pain Mr. Aaron, I feel your pain 😊

FuryTV

4. One of my all-time favorite comedians! “Go take a nap Justin” freaking hilarious 😊

5. Admiral McRaven gave an incredible motivational speech a few years ago. These mind sets will never get old and are a great reminder when the world seems dark. My favorite and most important to think about right now is #4 “Get over being a sugar cookie.” I’m so grateful for the men and women who train in frigid shark infested waters so my family can live free. Thank you for your service!

Never ring the bell. Have a fun and positive weekend all!
