Where Does The Healing Begin?
For most of us when we reached the other side which is happiness. Sadly, others need help to get in touch with that other side. Admittedly I needed that help once. The outcome taught me a lesson. When faced with even greater adversity I took initiative and used creativity to pull myself through. This last time was worse then the other. Strangely enough not too long after the other hardship and ten times worse.
But That’s Me
Everyone different. What did I do that second time that I didn’t the first. I looked through the darkness toward the the light. Also the time after I had positive people to help buoy me up. It was what I lacked that previous time. I also looked into myself and saw a positive person. Not everything went right. Far from it. Let’s face it there will always be people around looking to take advantage of someone who’s down. It just part of some people’s nature. And you will face that too.
Look toward the light. Look to make yourself better and get back on your feet. You will in some form or way if you put the belief in yourself.
Yeah the it goes again. You know that inner voice that seems to be taunting you from doing your task, tackling a goal and the list goes on and on. Science says we have a tendency to have a negative inner voice which saps our personal power. Once again the key is to use your tools of initiative and creativity.
That’s not important. What’s important is how to overcome that darn voice. How do I do it? I take it as a challenge. In fact I make it personal. That’s the initiative part. Then there’s the mechanics of how. That’s the creative part. I put aside the doubts and look at the goals. Then I plot at a plan on how to reach that goal.
Visualize the plan and going through the motions. Top pro athletes perform this task everyday. It’s how they boost their own personal power. With a little creativity and positive thought you can override that negative inner voice to success.
Turmoil strikes. Disarray and mayhem rule. What’s a person to do? That’s the question you are left with. The answer is simply draw on initiative and creativity. Have faith you’re coming out the otherside.
First of all
Make a stand to confront the issues at hand. Know that avoidance and running are not an objection. Look for options. Even create a few of your own making. Prepare yourself to endure the worst but expect to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Don’t anticipate…expect.
Is your friend. The belief in a higher power helps. Belief in yourself empowers you even more. Faith is a two-sided coin that way. A coin that will pay the way to see you to the otherside.

Healthcare reform will fail you and I
To be clear every level of healthcare system is set up to deal with the foreseeable and definitively detectable. Mental healthcare is trickier. It is more difficult to diagnose and it is an inexact science. On top of that we allow general physicians who are not adequately qualified to diagnose mental health problems to prescribe drugs and treatment without the patient getting the benefit of a full physical and mental work up. Insurance companies treat mental healthcare as an extra annoyance. This despite all the knowledge we have accumulated that shows the yearly increase of mental health problems and medical problems tied to mental health problems a flaw prevails. The flaw centers around not one healthcare proposal sufficiently offering a clear path to reversing this trend. In truth they all support the continuation of this failure.
The key to heathcare and mental healthcare reform
One word “Education”. It may seem trivial but 15 minutes three time a week would go a long way. It can start in preschool. When you think about it we all dabble in this education with a concept we call “self improvement.” This is a yearly billion dollar industry. While we do have exercises and games to promote positive concepts, when do not have a complete core training concept. If we teach our children to speak mental health freely. If we teach them to employ positive thinking and mental health concepts from a young age, the number of untreated, misdiagnose, over diagnosed, misprescribed and over medicated people will decline. Instead of increasing the numbers by the thousands who suffer will reverse the trend. If only 1% benefits in the beginning, that 1% will grow exponentially over time. The reality is there are no quick fixes. This is no one part of healthcare where we can just add water and stir for an instant resolve.
In The Present
The fact is Obamacare is going through the pains I outlined back in 2009. Another fact is any healthcare reform plan when adopted would have gone through the same. That is where initiative and creativity need to be applied. There are steps yet to be taken.
Open Mindedness and Receptivity
The only answer I can give is the wheels of change have begun to spin. To halt them would be a disaster waiting to happen. Open mindedness and applied insight will make more positive progress than nitpicking and fingerpointing. We have the technology, brainpower, and the need to create positive change. Let’s stop the bickering and begin the process to take healthcare to a sufficient level to serve all Americans well.
