“The ultimate measure of a [person] is not where [they stand] in moments of comfort and convenience, but where [they stand] at times of challenge and controversy.” - MLK Jr.
We need to choose better leaders. We need to have better standards. Not only do we need to choose love in everything we do, but we need to choose women and men who lead with love.
Thank you to the workers who are doing their jobs without pay. You shouldn’t have to. #governmentshutdown
The #governmentshutdown is on its fifth week, and 800,000 federal workers are expected to miss their second paycheck this Friday. Nichols College Political Science Professor Erika Cornelius Smith, Ph.D., shares how the #shutdown creates a domino effect on #Massachusetts residents.
The point in which you let go of how you think things should be and begin to live in peace with what is
We are offering meditation after class for the next 40 days at @victorypoweryoga ! I joined these beautiful souls this morning for a 5 minute meditation. It’s amazing what can change when you make time to be still with yourself. This #GovernmentShutdown is effecting our family in more ways than I can say and it is stressful, not just on my mind but my body! It is all connected. What a gift it is to let go of how we want things to be an accept things with grace, just the way they are, even if it’s for a few minutes. I am grateful for my family, for savings, and that God has a bigger and better plan for all this than I can wrap my tiny human brain around. .
People have been working for over 30 days without pay. Let that sink in. Imagine not having a paycheck to reflect your hard work since December 21st. I can’t change politics or politicians, but we can help negate the negative impact their actions are having on innocent people. Call your local airport and see what you , your family , your friends , or your church can do to help. God Bless Y’all 🙏🏽Thank you to @flymemphis and #gussfriedchicken#governmentshutdown#tsa
📌As the U.S. government shutdown enters its fifth week with no solution in sight, the economic fallout from the longest standstill in history could be bigger than previously expected. Last week, President Trump’s Council of Economic Advisers (CEA) doubled its estimates of how much the shutdown is hurting economic growth. The CEA now expects quarterly economic growth to be reduced by 0.13 percentage points for every week the standoff between the Trump administration and Democrats in Congress drags on, warning that it could ultimately result in an economic contraction if the government isn’t re-opened soon.
🔹The impasse, that left hundreds of thousands of government workers and contractors without pay, has started to take its toll on consumer optimism as well. The University of Michigan’s monthly Index of Consumer Sentiment, which gauges Americans’ view on their own financial situation as well as the state of the general economy, saw a steep drop-off in January, reaching its lowest level since October 2016, shortly before Trump was elected. “The loss was due to a host of issues including the partial government shutdown, the impact of tariffs, instabilities in financial markets, the global slowdown, and the lack of clarity about monetary policies”, Richard Curtin, chief economist for the Surveys of Consumers said, adding that “the falloff in optimism does not yet indicate the start of a sustained downturn in economic activity”.

Hello again fellow inhabitants of ‘The World of Cannabis’.🌎🌿👨🔬👩🔬
Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a neuroprotectant and antioxiodant. It’s also an anti-inflammatory, helps with chronic and acute pain, and a sleep aid for people suffering from insomnia. CBD is beneficial for depression, anxiety, and PTSD.🌈🌞
CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system, the system in the body that is the ‘quarterback’ of all the other systems, communicating with/and regulating all bodily functions to maintain a natural balance. Sometimes our natural levels are misaligned, and that’s where CBD comes into play. CBD interacts with the cannabinoid receptors in the body, enhancing the body’s ability to keep homeostasis, or a happy equilibrium. This is how it helps in treating a vast array of symptoms across the board.👨🔬👩🔬🔮🌎🌿
This past June, the FDA approved the first cannabis-derived medicine, Epidiolex, from GW Pharmaceuticals. Epidiolex is a CBD medicine for two severe forms of elilepsy, Dravet syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome.
In other news, the 2018 Farm Bill Act in the United States legalizes commercial production of hemp across the nation. CBD just so happens to be a consituent of the hemp plant.🌿💚🌱
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to foresee the inevitable BOOM in the near future with CBD. It will continue to enhance and progress the cannabis-related industry, and in my opinion, be a bridge to full legalization of cannabis across the globe🌎🌈⛵️🚗✈️🌿
Now that is out of the way, i would like to officially commence the #CBDseries brought to you by ‘The World of Cannabis’🌎🌿. For the next month or so in the #CBDseries, we will share unique insight on specifically what CBD can benefit. Ranging from autism to epilepsy, and arthritis to insomnia, we will share an in-depth analysis on how CBD treats specific ailments. We welcome you into the ‘The World of Cannabis’ to learn more on how CBD is positioning itself to be the future of medicine. Natural, non-addictive, you can’t overdose.. what’s not to love about CBD??💚🌈🌞🌎🌿
How has CBD positively impacted your life? Feel free to DM us or share below👇🏻👇🏽
