Greetings Beautiful Humans!
Yesterday I received my 4Ocean’s bracelet in the mail! This means a lot to me for several reasons.
The twenty bucks I donated helped to pull a pound of plastic out of the ocean and scored me this bracelet. As I wear it, it gives me great hope! First, that we will triumph over the plastic we’ve dumped in our oceans AND Secondly, that we beautiful humans are capable of overcoming any challenge!

Having trinkets and memorabilia around your home, office, vehicle, etc. is an invaluable way to elicit positive, endorphin-releasing thoughts and memories. This is why in 2016 I went to the extent to get a Chicago Cubs emblem tattooed on my upper right shoulder after my beloved baseball team won their first World Series in 108 years.
I knew every time I would look at it from that point on, it would remind why being a Cubs’ fan has been such a wonderful part of my life. On purpose with a purpose, I chose for my ink the emblem the Cubs wore when I was a boy.
There are so many great memories I have spending glorious afternoons in the bleachers at Wrigley Field, representing Cubbie Nation in other cities across the country like Miami, Milwaukee, San Diego, Atlanta, and when they visited here in Tampa Bay, too. I have been going to games since I was a kid with my dad, brothers, friends, by himself and later with my sons. So many amazing times and lessons learned—perhaps most importantly that while life is full of loses and disappointments, if you persevere long enough, you may very well end up victorious. Thereby making all the suffering even more impactful and worthwhile.
You may not want to go to the extent of getting a tattoo. But be conscious of helping you and yours benefit from easily accessed stress managing endorphins through timely purchased and well-placed nick-nacks, trinkets, pictures, T-shirts, hats, or any other item which reminds you of good times, good causes, great lessons and positive outcomes.
Love You People!
