Reading your local newspaper or checking out local web sites that inform you of local events in your area can turn up all sorts of surprising stuff. Seriously, you never know what you might discover! Solutions to solving an obstacle you thought was impossible might be offered next Friday at 8 a.m., for example… Well, at least, that’s what happened to me. So…
Keep Your Eyes Open… Read, Read, Read!
Pay attention to your surroundings. Read ads posted on public billboards. They still exist! Listen to what other people are telling you about events in your community. Read your local newspaper and/or check out local web sites that inform you of events in your area that are often free and can turn up all sorts of surprising solutions to problems we thought were impossible. Seriously, you never know what you might discover! Your biggest problem might be solved next Friday morning, free of charge. Sometimes all you need to do is show up.
Recently, I had a mysterious fainting spell. For reasons yet unexplained, I lost consciousness and fell face forward on the floor. Ouch! Except I was unconscious, so I didn’t feel anything… until after the fact, and I will continue to be in pain for probably several weeks.
After I hit the floor, I woke up next to a pool of my own blood, surprised that I wasn’t in bed and not even knowing where I was at first. Pretty disturbing. Fortunately, no bones were broken but my front teeth have been aching ever since. Although I could still chew food with my back teeth, it often aggravated the pain, so I’ve remained on a diet of soft food. Hmm… Might help my diet anyhow.
