Ep. 101 – Nancy Schmidt :: Surviving Breast Cancer

Nancy Schmidt (my aunt) is no stranger to the medical world.  Assisting my uncle, Dr. Richard G. Schmidt, Chief of Orthopedic Oncology at Lankaneu Medical Center in Wynnewood, Pennsylvania, for decades, she has been exposed to some of the most brutal forms of cancer a human can endure.  Still, nothing could have prepared her for the devastating news she received on a cold day in September 2009.  A breast cancer diagnosis that would alter her course and change her life forever.

Ep. 83 – Recorded Phone Call from Unwanted Solicitor “Legal Enforcement”

Back by popular demand, I recorded another phone call with a scam artist company. I received a voice message from this company claiming I would “get arrested” if I did not call back and handle a “fraudulent matter” pertaining to my social security number. While this episode does not last long, the message is strong: NEVER GIVE OUT YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER!

Ep. 79 – Recorded Phone Call from Unwanted Solicitor “Mortgage Company”

Are you sick and tired of getting dozens of phone calls from ghost solicitors trying to sell or “help” you with something every single day?  Yeah, well so am I.  This company kept calling tonight, so I decided to record them as well and see what it is they were offering.  Needless to say, it seemed like a scam, although I will let you – the listener – decide.

The point of this whole thing is that we need regulators to crack down on these unsolicited phone calls and we need to be mindful of who we are talking to and what information we are providing.  NEVER provide personal information such as home addresses, social security numbers, etc.!  Always be aware!

Let Gratitude Lead the Way

Overcoming challenges is what life is about.  There’s not a single person on this planet who goes untouched, unscathed.  Some of us have to face hurdles while others have to face horrors.  There are levels to what we deem to be “challenges,” and, with each level, a different set of mental, physical and/or emotional tactics we must use in order to lessen the blow and overcome our realities.

Life is an interesting, fragile set of circumstances that can be so bright one moment and dark the next.  So exciting today and mundane tomorrow.  And since none of it is guaranteed, we must focus on celebrating the good and mitigating the bad.  And we must take time to find gratitude in the little blessings that we so often overlook or take for granted.  And some of those blessings can indeed be the victories we achieve in overcoming our challenges.

I think as human beings we tend to gravitate toward to things we lack in life and, instead of appreciate our successes, we admire our problems.  And those forms of admiration can lead down a dark, rabbit-hole filled path of getting stuck in a recurring world of mental block-itis (I made up that word).  Which leads to an inability to face our challenges head on and make the necessary changes to come out ahead on the other side.

As we approach the weekend, take into account all of the beauty around you and also all of the areas in your life where change is needed.  And if you find gratitude in the beauties, you will begin to recognize that the challenges are not necessarily the mountains you have created.  They, in fact, are truly the molehills that they always were, but that you allowed to “grow” due to a longstanding path of admiration.  Squash the hills, adjust your mentality, and let gratitude lead the way to a more self-aware, consciously present existence.
