With cannabis comes cannabis education & realization.
I've got several girlfriends now with parents suffering from diseases..
Dementia, Parkinson's and miscellaneous aliments all have them stressed watching their moms deteriorate - of course. It hurts me to hear of them (I knew them growing up) suffering - know what hurts more - when I KNOW without asking these people are now on medications altering their brains and many (if not all) still probably were not told about cannabis as an option. Many will be on a mix of chemical cocktails proven to kill before their time'. The option that won't kill you from an accidental overdose is not offered, YET.
I'm beyond proud of cannabis & Canada - I truly believe this is going to improve our health as a Country with each NEW day comes new awareness. Cannabis is not proven to change brain chemistry- make it one of your first options to try treat pain & depression, PTSD, anxiety etc? RESEARCH. I've met many people who suffer from anxiety & it varies from person to person, WE ALL have reason to get anxious - TRUMP.. I feel it myself- to the point I CHOOSE to 'turn it off' and focus on something else. I CHOOSE to focus on my art- force myself. If I don't & let it ramble in my brain all day - who is to blame?
Do you think Trump thinks about me all day - lol. No. (Ewwwwwwwwww)
Do you see my point?
Nothing bothers me more when I see a beautiful, talented young woman who is wasting her life - being anxious about what others think of her and lets face it - that IS what it
is all about most of the time (we are all guilty of it) - because if we had no one to impress - we wouldn't care. There would be no reason to feel anxious.
The problem is I don't have time for bullshit or excuses, I'd rather paint. Sound cruel?
Do you want me to say: Poor you, stay home, hide away, put on weight, don't live your life, never experience things, blame others for your misery, never meet anyone, never share experiences, never reach your full potential - BECAUSE that is exactly the lie i'd be telling 'if' I did go along with the lies I'm told... & that would be cruel of me.
Life gives us a million reasons to be anxious. Choose carefully.
The older I get I also feel it is true- my grandma drilled it into me:
God helps those who help themselves.
I've got no problem helping someone 'I see trying'. It's that simple. We all have to try.
Trying at art, acting, knitting, anything - LIFE!
If I can help or possibly offer some encouragement I do... the moment I meet someone ready to blame the world on everyone else and not try- I lose all patience & quickly move on. Oh well. I'm not perfect - never pretended to be. - lol - This blog is proof.
Women are still behind men - in all ways - is there any wonder we do feel anxious?
I 'STILL' know many men who think women will never be their equal and should NEVER be considered their equal. That is their loss. & no they are not cavemen and not all OLD. It doesn't help when WE STILL constantly see naked women plastered all over - encouraged to be seen as sexual objects & the facts are THAT IS how the majority of those images are being seen (If I'm wrong about these facts & statistics - I encourage you to enlighten me) not as "ART" or beautiful human figures, or goddesses- no they are seen as objects men would like to F*&^. Fact. I get frustrated when I see friends who post their boobs with #FREEthenipple - are you really all about free the nipple?
Then another post follows.. was/is that #freethecrotch too? #Freethe asscheeks? Come on!
Please think about the younger women who will SEE, watch & follow in our paths and they already struggle with serious sexual abuse & rape - on the increased due to social media and this casual approach to posting nude photos and a swipe to the left.
I can only hope with cannabis legalization will come a new attitude - no more boobs and bongs... ha- there will always be a boob & bong market. It's a new moon, new day and time for a NEW cannabis image - positive, beautiful, clean, healthy & happy! & Safe!
Women- this is your opportunity to rise up! Take ownership and Prove:
We are more than boobs! Excited for the NEW day with Cannabis!
We are MUCH more than a pretty face.
