Each generation has similar complaints when it comes to dating and relationships – the main question usually is, “Why is it so hard to find someone?” Where are the men and women of quality? How exactly can we weed through this mass of nonsense? The endless text/pen pals, the barrage of married people lying about their situations, then want you to just be understanding and wait for them, to people who seem to be floating around from situation to situation waiting for something to happen to them. Some blame technology, but what about 100 years ago when they barely had telephones? They encountered the same issues – even 1000 years ago. The only difference between then and now is in some cases now women are considered almost a person and not really property.
Now that we are getting back into the swing of things after a three day weekend, I’m sure some of us are feeling that post BBQ bloat. All the burgers, hot dogs, potato salad, booze, desserts, and steak in some cases made for a tasty weekend for most of us. What are we supposed to do when that indigestion creeps in, and we feel a bit sick this week? A healthy alternative to get you back on track is increasing your vegetable intake. There are numerous benefits to eating veggies healthily (not loaded with butter & salt). I know the trend is to make some kind of shake with the trendy veggie (kale at the moment) but I invite you to actually cook your vegetables, season them then eat them. You may end up enjoying them more.
I know most of us will be enjoying quality time with friends and loved ones surrounded by the smell of sunscreen, charcoal, and beer that is starting to get warm – let us take a moment to remember why this holiday was created. It was created to honor all those who have served, and continue to serve and fight for us to enjoy all time off, time with loved ones, and time to complain about never getting the good parking spot at work so you have to walk an extra 5 minutes into work.
I thank you.
