NOTEWORTHY NOVEMBER – Mental Health Monday: “A pill will fix it!”

A few weeks ago, I wrote a post that was the complete opposite of this post! If you missed it, click HERE to check it out. It seems to me, living in the nation that accounts for 5% of the world population and 75% of prescription drugs, that more people are utilizing the excuse that … More NOTEWORTHY NOVEMBER – Mental Health Monday: “A pill will fix it!”

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year!” ERRRRRRK-SHHHHHH-CRASH-BANG-STOPPPPPPPPPPPPPP! You can most assuredly believe that the holidays are the most wonderful time of the year… BUT… PLEASE do not assume that this means everything should go perfectly.

NOTEWORTHY NOVEMBER – Tasty Tuesday: “I can’t afford to eat healthy”

There is a myth out there that many people are using to excuse themselves from eating healthy… Healthy food is more expensive. As a person who lives on a strict and very limited budget (living on about 30% of our 2 person income), I can tell you that eating healthy is NOT outside of your … More NOTEWORTHY NOVEMBER – Tasty Tuesday: “I can’t afford to eat healthy”

NOTEWORTHY NOVEMBER – Sacred Sunday: “I don’t need to go to church to love God”

This is an excuse that is growing increasingly more and more popular as time goes on. True: Going to church does not save you or get you a ticket to heaven. True: You can show love and devotion to God outside of a church building. True: You are disobeying the LORD if you do not … More NOTEWORTHY NOVEMBER – Sacred Sunday: “I don’t need to go to church to love God”

NOTEWORTHY NOVEMBER – Family Friday: “We have to see if we are fully compatible”

So today I am writing about something that is not only controversial… but basically unheard of these days. The excuse: “We have to see if we are fully compatible.” The impetus for the excuse: Couples living together before they are married. For the record… Yes, I waited to live with my husband until we got … More NOTEWORTHY NOVEMBER – Family Friday: “We have to see if we are fully compatible”

NOTEWORTHY NOVEMBER – Workout Wednesday: “I don’t have time for strength training”

Oh My … This was completely, totally, fully, 100%… MY EXCUSE. For a long time I avoided strength training all together because I had a bad experience in college sports. My coach had us on a lifting regimen that caused me to bulk up and then I had summer break and lost all my toned … More NOTEWORTHY NOVEMBER – Workout Wednesday: “I don’t have time for strength training”

NOTEWORTHY NOVEMBER – Mental Health Monday: “I don’t need medication”

After writing about instant gratification, it might seem odd for me to discuss the idea that people would NOT want a “quick fix” to their problems. While America is the largest consumer of prescription drugs, there is also a subset of people who refuse to even consider utilizing psychotropic/mental health medications. We will address the … More NOTEWORTHY NOVEMBER – Mental Health Monday: “I don’t need medication”

NOTEWORTHY NOVEMBER – Theme Thursday: Instant Gratification

Noteworthy November is all about addressing the common excuses we, as a society, make all too often AND the fullness of life that it steals from us when we give way to these excuses. In light of a “Theme Thursday,” I thought it would be appropriate to not focus on an actual excuse, but an … More NOTEWORTHY NOVEMBER – Theme Thursday: Instant Gratification
