Petty things that used to determine the rest of my day

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

Friend: "So when you get to Rice Street, you need to turn left". Quinton: "Ok, give me a second to memorize that. Yes, I can see mice all over that street eating at the rice, hence the street name. The mice are all leaning to the left and at the same time they have tattoos on their foreheads that reads "L" for loser. Oh, and they're sad, because they are all losers" Quinton is a South African native who literally is a "Jack of all Trades". Born in Cape Town, South Africa in 1977 during Apartheid. His ADHD as a child has helped him to early on in his life figure out how to think and do things the unconventional way without him knowing it was actually a very unusual way. He had a fairly good childhood upbringing according to himself. He couldn't understand why he wasn't suppose to interact with "white" people during that time, but that didn't deter him from asking questions and being inquisitive. He had built bikes so he could do stunts, learned how to juggle, taught himself to be a gymnast, studied the tennis pro's by meticulously copying every single move they made, played amateur soccer and held the highest record among his friends for tapping a football over a thousand times in one take, co founded an a Capella group called Young Ambition where he was the lead singer, was a stand up comedian for 6 months, annoyed his teachers at school, was the life of the party everywhere he went, toured the U.S, got married to an American, had two daughters, got divorced after 11 years and currently an online entrepreneur. Oh, he also created online YouTube music, calls himself "The Accented Guy" and taught himself to play the keyboards, became a skilled jazz musician, because his voice started giving in. He's played with well known bands all over town and in other states. He experimented using Jazz to incorporate it into heavy metal, rock, European progressive classical music etc. and also studied languages whereby his goal is to speak Spanish fluently by the end of 2017
