Hi Accented Family.
I’m sitting here in Edina’s Target with a nice Grande White Chocolate Mocha waiting for my blood pressure medication from the pharmacist. I know, I need to cut back on the cappuccino, but hey…I haven’t had one of these babies in months. Lol
Anyway. I wake up most mornings at 5am or 6am and just feel great knowing I’m working towards greater health and financial freedom. I have never felt like this ever in my life. It’s something I have made a conscious decision about.
An example of what has changed is the following.
This morning I woke up at 5am, did my morning ritual which is what I always start out with which is watch a motivational video and if there’s time, watch the latest news happenings, watch a tennis video and then a short stand up comedy one too.
This alone is what sets the time for the day.
So I usually donate plasma twice a week. It’s a process whereby one donates blood that gets separated from the plasma and the blood gets put back into the body.
It’s for a good cause and in the meantime I get paid for it.
So upon checking my levels before the donation process, my blood pressure was too high. So normally they tell you to go sit for a couple minutes to initially have your blood pressure lowered, but mine was still too high and that was because I hadn’t taken my medication in two days. It’s amazing how much my Blood pressure rose in these two days.
If this would have happened 2 years ago, I would have been the most miserable individual you could ever find, because that meant I wouldn’t be able to even get out of bed. Man, my health was pretty bad back then.
So today I can’t donate plasma unless I take my meds again and here I am in Edina’s Target sitting by the window with my cup of white chocolate mocha just soaking up the little bit of sun left before possible snow might hit us on Thursday.
After I get my meds, I’m off to share more love by working at my part time landscaping job in Bloomington.
I’m happy about the chance I have in life again to just be honest with myself and affect those around me positively and lovingly.
Till next time
The Accented Guy
