World AIDS Day takes place on the 1st December each year. It’s an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, to show support for people living with HIV, and to commemorate those who have died from an AIDS-related illness.

During the month of June, the Alzheimer’s Association asks people around the world to take the Purple Pledge and use their brains to fight Alzheimer’s disease. My grandmother passed from this dreaded disease. This impacts families all over the world and there needs to be a cure.

Receiving and Giving

I’ve learned that when your tank is empty it’s hard to give anything else. You need to fill your tank now and it’s more than OK to receive. Right now im in a receiving mode with selective giving. Balance in every season of life is a good thing.

World Aids Day, Continuing The Fight For A Cure – #worldaidsday

World AIDS Day is celebrated around the world on December 1st each year. It has become one of the most recognized international health days and a key opportunity to raise awareness, commemorate those who have passed on, and celebrate victories, such as increased access to treatment and prevention services.

UNAIDS took the lead on campaigning for World AIDS Day from its creation until 2004. From 2004 onwards the World AIDS Campaign’s Global Steering Committee began selecting a theme for World AIDS Day in consultation with civil society, organisations and government agencies involved in the AIDS response.

Napping The Weekend Away

I must need the rest or something because I took some pretty long naps yesterday and today. Resting on the weekends is a great thing because it does help you for the week ahead but there is so much you wanna do other than sleep but your body says differently. The stress of the week before can really impact your weekend activities. Waking up from a nap is hard because you are comfy and cozy. Resetting for the week ahead can be a good thing to help one cope with the stress that lies ahead. One thing you should never do is apologize for taking care of yourself in this way

The Flu Bug, Impacting Life and Learning #flu

The flu bug has gotten bad where I live. So bad that schools have used some of their built-in snow days and cancelled classes so the children and staff can get better. Everyone loves a day off but this is not the way many wanted it to come about. Several people I work with were scrambling to find child care options for tomorrow as our local school system has also called off school for Friday. I got a flu shot in November. I can’t remember the last time I had it. Those who got the bug are sitting at home trying to get well.
