Hi my Christmas friends!!!!!!! If you work in an” Office- Setting”,will you attend your Company’s Christmas Party?? I’m self-employed now,for the last 7 years…However,, I worked for a Publishing Company for (4) yrs. In Management, at  Chrysler Corporation for (6)yrs..So, I know a thing or too,about Company Parties!!!!!(if walls could talk)lol…It always amaze me and (fellow co-workers) How, it appeared to be the (Quite,Shy,Mousy, somewhat, unflattering Clothes) young ladies,that, once you give these girls, a couple of drinks,the hair comes down,usually followed by clothing…..(NOT ALL) SOME*..lol.. However, I feel, the number is somewhat higher in Corporate…It seems drinking and holiday parties, can bring out the best, and the worst..Then, there are the 2 ladies everyone knows are (women on the prowl)(Loose) “No Regrets” Nothing to Lose” looking to hook up with the Boss,or any person in high authority….I always, remembered, at these Parties,I would/will have to face these (same people) monday morning!!!!!!! Therefore, I strive to have 1 drink,dress appropriately,(keep the gossip to a minimum)…lol..Over the years,I have  personally seen 2 marriage dissolve,because of a fling at a “Christmas Party” It’s very sad to lose yourself in the moment because of a weak desire,liquor,loneliness,and a chance,for a little love!!! (love,well,Lust) please,ladies, and men,if you attend your Christmas Party* (Alone/or with your Mate) DO NOT get involved in something,that has no future,nor,will get you a promotion….It just will not work….It has been proven….People, do foolish things,when you throw your beliefs,and values,to the wind…..Thus, I would like to remain you,Don’t do anything,that Monday Morning,   you will be sorry for,and now with social media,your picture,acts,and personal body parts.can be shown to millions,with one (1) click of a i phone…..you have been Warned…..lol…Peace..Happy Holidays* (keep your Values&Morals) blm1957@wordpress.com  hug your children,keep them close…..Merry Christmas* 10 days until the Big Day!!!!!!!!BTW: Have A Great* Time At Your Christmas Party!!

Hello my friends,If you live in the Mid-West like my family,you are in the middle of a “COLD”  Freeze,  the sun refuses to shine….The snow and cold will not let up…Thus,I ask, are you finding yourself  feeling  sad, moody,anxiety, and just*depressed??? If so, you may be suffering from (SAD)* – SEASONAL AFFECTIVE DISORDER- Often known as winter depression,winter blues,sudden sadness,and Depression…..These, sudden changes in mood*in people with normal mental* health throughout the year,suddenly,find themselves experiencing depressive symptoms in winter……..Although experts were initially skeptical,this condition is now recognized as a common disorder,with its prevalence in the U.S..The National Library of Medicine notes that “some people experience a serious mood change, when the seasons change,some may sleep too much,have little energy,with deep feelings of sorrow,lack of focus and desire” As well,some symptoms can be severe,how- ever,they usually clear up,once the season changes,or the SUN* returns!!!!!!  Yea…..lol… S.A.D. was formally described and named in 1984,by Dr.Norman Rosenthal at the National Institute of Mental Health………..There are treatments for classic winter-based seasonal affective disorders,including,(LIGHT THERAPY) using, Direct Sunlight,HighWatt Bulbs,-(bright lights)….This is the Remedy,I choose,As, I have an enclosed heated in winter/cool in summer,(Sun Porch) Moreover,this Porch,is a blessing,in the cold,dreary,months of winter,(Dec-Feb.) On these chilly,sun/less days of winter,I head for the (no pun intented) Sun Porch..lol..where my hubby,has installed, (12))over-head light-bulbs,100/175 watts,we also have bright blue walls,(blue is my fav-color) a reminder,of summer,and the beach,ocean, fun in the sun…you feel me?? lol..My C.D. player,offers,lively,soothing,magical,sounds of Summer, I love the sounds of flowing water,,the ocean,wind,and rain…… It seems, my mood change almost instantly…I’m so thankful,for my Sun-Porch,I would be in deep trouble without my light therapy….I need it…lol..Hopefully, my light-therapy suggestion helps you.Until,summer returns,I wish you sun-light,and peace..”GO TO THE LIGHT”…..lol…hug your children,keep them close……blm1957@wordpress  Christmas Countdown,11 days until Christmas…(my grandson counted down for us) my grandson’s are visiting,for the week-end,they are trying to open gifts,looking inside,peeking….lol…I love them……….(Boy’s No Peeking)..lol………..
