YoTrip Chooses to LIVE LIFE 4/16/13


Great day in the morning folks! Decide right now to LIVE your life in the spirit of peace. #GDMF374

Chooses To LIVE LIFE

In the mist of all this darkness, disaster, and doom
I choose to LIVE and get beyond the gloom
It is so easy to soak it up and be consumed with it all
Now is the time to LIVE and not fold and fall
We must now take an action and that is to LIVE
Make it your business to go on and give
Never will we get this time to LIVE over again
So just choose life and go right on and win
We can make a thousand excuses and stay stuck in place
Or we can move now and start running the LIFE race
So LIVE life for the ones who gave LIFE without a reason
Take if from me now is the LIVE LIFE season.
Yo Trip ~~4/16/13

Thursday Thinking by YoTrip for November 22, 2012-A Word Of Thanksgiving (Vol.11, Iss.3)


Happy Thanksgiving

A WORD OF THANKSGIVING

 

Today is the National Day of Thanksgiving here in the United States. All over the country people cooked, cleaned and connected over meals that covered tables and filled empty stomachs. Gathering of family, friends and folks took place  all in the name of Thanksgiving.

I like so many was blessed to be able to travel and join my family for all the fun, food, and fellowship associated with Thanksgiving. I visited with two different family members homes and it was great just to all be together. The food was incredible: Cornish Hens, turkey, ham, dressing, turnip greens, mac n’ cheese, fried and barbaque chicken, chitterlings, string beans, mixed peas, potato salad, corn pudding, apple cobbler, carrot cake, sweet potato pie,  and red velvet cake.

We laugh and love so much, it was a joy. We watched Football games, Charlie Brown Thanksgiving (a classic) and then 25th Anniversary for Micheal Jackson‘s BAD. What a great day for offering a word of Thanksgiving. I have so much to be thankful and grateful for, I just cannot tell it all. 

I would also like to take this time to offer a word of Thanksgiving for all of the people who have supported YoTrip-Words and Thoughts/Tuesday Thoughts by YoTrip/Thursday Thinking by YoTrip as I seek to leave my footprints on the world.

Let us all continue in the spirit of Thanksgiving for this day and beyond!

Tuesday Thoughts by YoTrip for November 20, 2012-National Adoption Month (Vol.11, Iss.3)


Length of stay in U.S. foster care

November is National Adoption Month and it is such a selfless act to open your heart, your home, and your head to another person. The love, support, joy and completeness that families give to children by bringing them into their families is a beautiful thing. I salute the countless numbers of people who adopted and understand the power making the difference in the life of others. 

 

History of National Adoption Month

 

National Adoption Month has been celebrated for 17 years. Explore the history of National Adoption Month in this section.

 

Early days

 

 

Efforts to use the Internet—and social media—in adoption recruitment and retention continue today.

 

Celebrating National Adoption Month

 

Every November, a Presidential Proclamation launches activities and celebrations to help build awareness of adoption throughout the nation. Thousands of community organizations arrange and host programs, events, and activities to share positive adoption stories, challenge the myths, and draw attention to the thousands of children in foster care who are waiting for permanent families. http://www.childwelfare.gov/adoption/nam/about/history.cfm

 

Keep the people impacted by Hurricane Sandy in your thoughts and prayers.

Tuesday Thoughts by YoTrip for 10/30/2012-Beyond October (vol.10, Iss.5)


Breast cancer awareness

Breast cancer awareness (Photo credit: AslanMedia)

Beyond October

As we close the month of October and National Breast Cancer Awareness month, we can sit and wonder was enough said and done to help the cause. Until there is a cure for breast cancer we must commit to do more beyond thirty-one days in the fall of the year. Breast cancer is a bold disease that has found its way into every segment of society and is spreading like wildfire.  Because breast cancer is not stopping, slowing down or taking a break, we must be very diligent to stay in the fight to find a cure. As we speak, somewhere in the world someone has been given a diagnosis of breast cancer, and they do not know how to deal with the road ahead. Knowing that someone is in need of  ways to cope with breast cancer is reason enough to keep working to find a cure.  
Now is the time to make the effort to do your part to keep breast cancer awareness relevant and in the forefront of people’s hearts and minds. Do your part by connecting with local or national organizations that promote breast health. It is vital that everyone remembers to education, empower and encourage others about breast cancer. 
Until we see that breast cancer is not taking over at alarming rates to women, men, young and old people we have to work hard by going out and telling others we support breast cancer health and awareness. So be challenged, be courageous, be committed to the cause of finding a cure for breast cancer.

Check Your Breast…It Is Not  An Option

 

God did not think it robbery to lend those breast to you

 

Getting them checked annually is not hard to do

 

Since 1913 or so have medical actions been taken on behalf of breast

 

You must do your part to allow the doctor’s to run the test

 

The bump, the lump the discomfort or no symptoms at all

 

It is vital to get a mammogram act now do not stall

 

You can not take time for granted, it can be removed in a blink of an eye

 

Your health is your wealth, honor it or it will simply go bye-bye

 

So many have battled and fought at the hands of breast cancer

 

Awareness through education, empowerment, and encouragement are truly the answer

 

Do your part for you and others by getting your annual test and screening today

 

Make your breast health a priority, there is no other way!

Seasons Change...

Walk Into Your Season

I feel seasons everywhere and

I feel blessings in the air

those seeds that you’ve sown

your gonna come into your own

seasons walk into your season. http://bit.ly/UwzlXV

As the hot and lazy days of summer come to a close, it signals that soon we will move into the season of fall/autumn. The month of September brings forth a change or shift in the air and surroundings. The heat dial starts to come down and a cool breeze is an undertone that you start to feel in the sunshine state and other areas of the south.

Take the challenge and embrace this shift in the atmosphere. As the winds of cool stir let it take you and move you forward. What better time for a new start, a new beginning . Give yourself permission to Walk Into Your Season. This time, this moment is yours to move one foot in front of the other and take what are your hopes and dreams. Just commit to doing things differently, start to Walk Into Your Season.

Lay aside fear, doubt, unbelief, haters and any obstacles that in your way. Now more than ever you must see yourself going in this new direction in your life, Walk Into Your Season. Turn your fear into faith, your doubt into determination, unbelief into understanding, haters into helpers and obstacles into opportunities. Do it now Walk Into Your Season.

Ready or not the time is moving on and going forward you can decide to let it pass you by or you can get to stepping and boldly Walk Into Your Season.

Tuesday Thoughts by YoTrip-A Vital Resource To Stroke Victims: The Caregivers (Vol.5, Iss.5)

A Vital Resource To Stroke Victims: The Caregivers

The victim of a stroke need someone to help them as they recover and heal from the affects of their stroke. The caregiver is the person who provides care, concern and compassion to the stroke victim. Those who provide assistance give of themselves to  ensure the stroke victim, has the things they need on their journey to recovery.

Being a caregiver requires patience and persistence when interacting  with both the stroke victims and other resources. Please read and share the information below.

 

Caregivers/family members play a prominent role throughout the post-stroke recovery process. Caregivers/family members are essential to successful home care and too often are ignored. Caring for stroke survivors at home can cause high levels of emotional, mental and physical stress. In addition to distress, disruption of employment and family life makes caregiving very challenging. Family caregivers can promote positive post-stroke recovery outcomes; however, they need to care for themselves as well. Post-stroke recovery varies for each person; even if the stroke survivor returns to work and maintains a large amount of autonomy, family members may play a bigger role in the stroke survivor’s live than before the stroke.

Caregivers/family members of stroke survivors: You are not alone. National Stroke Association is dedicated to providing educational programs and resources to help you navigate the challenging post-stroke recovery journey.

Caregivers/family members may:

  • Assist with doctor’s appointments, medications, and exercises.

  • Manage financial matters and transportation.

  • Provide the stroke survivor with physical, mental and emotional support.

  • Assist the stroke survivor with daily activities such as personal care and hygiene.

  • Plan out the stroke survivor’s care, including setting routines and managing the care team.

  • Assess stroke survivor’s medical needs, communicate with healthcare professionals and advocate (medically) for the stroke survivor.

Tuesday Thoughts for May 1, 2012-National STROKE Awareness Month (Vol.5, Iss.1)


 

This month I will highlight and bring awareness to National Stroke Awareness Stroke Awareness Month banner

History of
National Stroke Awareness Month

National Stroke Awareness Month takes place in May every year. On May 11, 1989, President George Bush signed Presidential Proclamation 5975 designating May asNational Stroke Awareness Month at the urging of National Stroke Association. Since then, National Stroke Association has been honoring this special time of the year to increase public awareness of stroke in an effort to conquer it.

Over the years, public education campaigns have been conducted during May to increase awareness of different aspects of stroke that directly affect specific populations, such as women or those at high risk for stroke. Today, National Stroke Association continues educating the public through campaigns such as the Faces of Stroke℠ and by designing easy-to-use tools and resources that initiate individuals and groups to raise awareness on a local level.

What is a stroke?

A stroke or “brain attack” occurs when a blood clot blocks an artery (a blood vessel that carries blood from the heart to the body) or a blood vessel (a tube through which the blood moves through the body) breaks, interrupting blood flow to an area of the brain.  When either of these things happen, brain cells begin to die and brain damage occurs.

When brain cells die during a stroke, abilities controlled by that area of the brain are lost.  These abilities include speech, movement and memory.  How a stroke patient is affected depends on where the stroke occurs in the brain and how much the brain is damaged. http://www.stroke.org/site/PageNavigator/HOME
