Show me the spirit of love, I’ll show you a better lifestyle!
You can’t dispute that I’ve alerted you about the dangers of toxicity.
But it won’t mean a thing when you don’t take heed!
In the News,
Late Edition – Update COVID19
Through the mask of toxicity, COVID19 has changed the way we all will live, apparently. To stay safe in this new lifestyle, one must maintain a social distance of standing six feet apart, wearing a facial mask, and covering the hands with gloves. In this uncertain world, it’s difficult to determine who contracted this contagious and deadly disease. Shame on the USA not acting swiftly in its implementation of safety measures! Without proper testing, those who are carriers of this toxic disease shall remain a mystery! As a result of this hideous infestation, the death rate increases daily. I’ve been tested. And please to report I’m in the safe zone. Lately, have you taken your test?
In this massive time of destruction, domestic violence is on the rise. Life is full of unhealthy relationships, giving ample opportunity for toxicity to embrace a home. A home where one resides for comfort and shelter. Partner-in-partner relationships’ take a front-row seat to the beatings and verbal abuse interactions. When this happens, there is a loss of self-love. That little person who lives inside (each of us) says, “Never allow anyone to rob you of that self-love!”

Early Edition: Global Warning . . . They’re Back!
Did you know wellness is the new luxury of life? If you’re seeking to make a change, you’re on the right track to surviving in a broken society and moving forward to a life of wellness. With all those unhealthy interactions that invaded our environment and crippled our circle, I’ve titled these toxic elements (in their many disguises), Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Life is so full of stuff . . . the good, the bad, and lots of ugliness. This is a reason its title resonates well with what’s happening in today’s society. Think about it! Those unruly interactions have brought nothing but a mass of destruction and rawness. The Pod People (as we knew them) are no longer a fictitious image from a sci-fi movie. Seemingly, they’re back, alive, active, and real!
The way we value wealth and social connections are evident that America is a broken society and unbearably toxic. Look around; times are extremely dangerous ─ capturing the loss of emotions and individualized identities. We can’t close an eye without fear of being robbed of our life, even the life of a loved one. No one is safe ─ not on a commute, not in a home, nor at a church. The proof is in the mass destruction from that of emotionless, singled-minded drones. We no longer must entertain their crazy madness or close an eyelid; for its poison will swallow the human side of us . . . and we’ll become one of them. For your own safety, arm yourself with a protective shield. It should help you Break Free of Toxicity. Throughout my social sites’ postings, I’ve provided informational tools (as one’s shield of armor), use them at all costs. Don’t allow anyone to absorb your mindset and take away the joy. You’ll want to Fill Yourself with the Overflow and empower the self! If you’re unfamiliar with the news of Overflow, listen to the artist Tasha Cobbs ─ releasing its beautification for overflowing.
Most importantly, it’s about spreading the love, looking good, feeling great, reaching for greater power, and sleeping well. In this era, that phrase is a more holistic state of being where one’s emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual health becomes synced. If you’re not into a wellness lifestyle, you will be one of them!
Beware and take it seriously: having contact with the Body Snatchers is contagious and deadly . . . while spewing its venom in all directions.
