This song is one of many songs that used to play in our intercostal condo at Shipwatch while I was adding mascara, or lipstick preparing for a night out to one of many of the wonderful seafood restaurants on the Gulf Beaches. Happy Holidays!
I have watched many videos and the music in the background truly can make the video. I watched this video because it contains one of the best messages. Artist Natalie Merchant's CD is one of the many I purchased from the BMG music club. I believe that was the name of it. The company that sent stickers in the Sunday paper so you could lick and stick them onto the order form. Sometimes, I only knew one or two songs, but I ordered the CD anyways.
This song is very fitting for a message that I want to give out to Clearwater Florida this Thanksgiving for all of your random acts of kindness. It was Mother's Day weekend when I arrived unexpectedly with nothing but a pair of my favorite skinny jeans, a teal Limited Express halter top and my favorite high heel sandals with a peace sign on them. I carried with me for the first time just a few documents from my insurance company. I didn't even have my Mac Book Air which is rare. I always carried my Apple computer as my connection to inspiration and to the world. Arriving here in handcuffs and shackles was not how I intended to return to Pinellas County, but that's how I was treated.
See the last time I asked for help for computer invasion and identity theft was in Martin County at the Sheriff Department. I felt safe in doing so because I was told the person in charge attended Christ Fellowship, my church. But in truth, someone had noted that I had an outstanding warrant in Pinellas County and I was needed. What I was needed for was to answer the prayers of the identity thieves. The identity thieves continued to access my personal information on my Mac and internet accounts and also needed me to pay child support. So after being transported over a period of seven days, spending Mother's Day in jail, I was released in the city of Clearwater with nothing but the outfit I described. The money which I had was taken for "recreation" if you want to call basketball recreation, at $3.00 it's the only opportunity to get outside. Well, in Florida, there is a known crisis called human and sex trafficking. It's after your kids and mom's. So my story of survival and staying optimistic is one of survival.
After just a mile, I was able to reach my friend who was close by and I reported to her I can't even walk in these sandals. I am blistered from trying. I had rode a bicycle to Martin County to ask for help. I was told that I could not leave, when I handed them my Florida driver's license. She kept it. She said I am unable to let you leave. With that, I became so frustrated that I could only muster up a few words. I had arrived on March 16, 2017 in West Palm Beach. I got a gym membership to Planet Fitness and to the Y in Stuart Florida. I got a job at Denny's which I learned has since closed. I had all of these thoughts flashing through my mind. As she was handcuffing me, I stated John 3:16, "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life." That's all I could come up with. The police asked me to take down any phone numbers and the only number I could think of was Tim Tebow's foundation. Being in the town beside Port St. Lucie, it was on my to do list to go to an MLB game. After all, I was Shaken because my son was taken the very first time I sought help for computer invasion. (summer 2013)
I didn't know the right words to say, so I said something like, "I don't know how that they are doing this, but someone else is on my computer at the same time as me. I can tell because my files are moved around. I don't know if you have ever had anyone break into your home, but I have and you can tell when things are moved around, touched even if something isn't taken." The police officer agreed. However, when I went to follow up with the police station to see how the investigation went, I could only pick up a copy of the police officer's report. Her report stated, "...her ex husband states her computer issues are imaginary and in her head and she has mental health issues..." now imagine being a business owner who relies on your computers, Dell and Apple for e-mail marketing, website updates, e-mail correspondence and social media and then being denied help because the only suspect you could identify says my complaints are imaginary or in my head.
Within a month or two, my son's appendix ruptured, age five. We spent seven days at All Children's Hospital. Our finances dwindled and without warning all five years worth of work on business development were destroyed by identity thieves. They didn't hesitate to wipe our all of my optimism. All of my testimonials. My son's photos and mine. They shut down my Pay Pal account and withdrew money from my bank accounts including a guardianship account. They didn't miss a social media account and that's not all. They hypnotized me and used sex trafficking to separate me from my son. These social media stalkers remain on the loose like serial criminals. As I have restored pieces of my identity, it wasn't until I reached out to Life is Good that I really truly remembered my identity. Ms Optimist. I have 100% been the optimist of the group. I believe sometimes, the website, e-mail marketing and blogs were positive and maybe someone wasn't feeling as optimistic as I was, but to hypnotize others into crimes, or into sexual acts, is something that I take seriously because these criminals are actively using the Florida justice system to commit crimes to persons who are inspired.
As I move forward towards identity restoration, I follow the wise advise of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. run, when you can't run, walk and when you can't walk, crawl. I thank you Clearwater and to my friends. For the identity theft that happened to Mrs. Robbie's PC Solutions and founder of inspire well-being! has impacted a very significant number of people and today I change my perspective and remind myself that optimism is my identity restored.
Thank you for loans for apartment deposits, and first month rent. Thank you for money for gas and for the used car loan. Thank you for rides to work and for showing me respect and for honoring my son. Thank you for clothing from the store at Seventh Day Adventist Church. Thank you Peace Memorial for shelter on cold nights and for food and for personal care items. Thank you for paying for my gym membership. Thank you for a place to sleep where it's brightly lit and "warm" and not pouring rain. Thank you for a bed to sleep in during hurricane Irma. Thank you for food to eat and for apps with rewards and gifts for new customers. Thank you Steve Wozniak for helping USF stay a leader in research and training and for President Judy Genshaft for your persistence in excellence. Thank you for being my voice.
Thank you my son for your faith in your mom that somehow I am going to figure it out and we are going to be together during the holidays this year. Thank you for my paychecks Tropical Smoothie and thank you God for your son Jesus. I have asked him to spend time with me the last 24 hours and asked him since yesterday morning where would he like to sleep. Jesus appeared to me wanting to come down from the cross and wanting to spend time with each of us, not just me. The inspired ideas which have come to me in the past 24 hours are inspired of Jesus.
Thank you to the local food pantries and especially to LA Fitness where I have finally arrived. On my contact us page, you see my updated resume. I have tried so many times to get to LA Fitness but I was hypnotized out of all areas of success in my life. I ask that you please be patient, and loving to those you care about during these holidays. When you see any unusual behavior please love instead of get frustrated and ask questions do not assume, avoid being alone in new relationships, try giving extra support. Ask Jesus to join you in any situations that you are in. We must all be cautious because there are currently no regulations on hypnosis or Reiki in Florida. This method of attack is increasing cases of human/sex trafficking and identity fraud. The statistics of victims are very high, and so are many of the thieves. What I mean is that it's a "high" for them to take what you have and leave you with nothing.
Thank you to the Clearwater community and for those in Pinellas County who are helping to stop the trafficking and for replacing it with optimism. I can honestly say, in a word, optimism. That's what defines me and thank you especially to Life is Good for defining something for me. When I was hypnotized to "not speak" and to speak for someone else, I couldn't express how great my God is and how grateful I am to Jesus for covering a multitude of sins so that we who accept his forgiveness into our hearts are given the gift of eternal life. Both my son and me are so fortunate to have survived.
I have found that my bella dance fitness and graceful yoga movements are a movement and helping me to move through fraud. This beautiful video captures best a very powerful message. Thank you Clearwater for your random acts of kindness. This includes cash which very kind individuals have given to me. I never could imagine ever experiencing a crime such as this, but I can tell you that when the Lord leads you, or your intuition leads you to help, I am grateful. This includes to Richard Gere for Time Outta Mind. If I have missed listing you, it doesn't mean I have forgotten you.
I believe this country has many survivors fighting for freedom because identity theft is when someone takes your children because they say you have mental health issues and they are lying. Computer invasion is also privacy invasion and when someone invades your privacy, let optimism be what they find.
I am sitting across from God with Jesus. Just thirty minutes ago he appeared to me hanging on the cross in Clearwater across from the MLB stadium on US Highway 19. With tears flowing from his eyes he requested to please be taken down from this cross. He doesn't want to be hanging on the cross he wants to be with us. To spend time with us and he is not limited to be with just one of us. Here in this video below are his attributes. These attributes of Jesus are what is needed this holiday season and all year long.
With a special thanks to the participants in Steve's class on the attributes of God for putting their hands on me. I felt instant healing from harassment. This is a powerful message worth sharing.
I just love how Bert shares the impact that their customers have on Life is Good. I have followed Life is Good success for so long, smiling so big when I saw the partnership with Hallmark and their festivals. I believe in these super powers which come from the stories of customers. Kids have super powers. They see what we miss sometimes and how awesome that they are writing to businesses to let them know how optimistic they are.
In 2006, I agreed to join others to train for the 60 mile walk for breast cancer after joining a team of walkers in the Largo/Indian Rocks Beach Florida area. After walking hundreds of miles four times weekly wearing my pink Life is Good cap with a yellow daisy and pink back sack that said, "Life is Good." the news came that I was pregnant. Together, Forrest and me completed the 2007 60 mile walk with Vivas las chicas. I was six months pregnant. Shortly afterwards, my running partner and me ran the Disney Princes half marathon wearing Life is Good princess cap t-shirts, returning to give Forrest a t-shirt that read, "My mommy ran the Disney Princess half marathon and I got this t-shirt."
In 2013, we we separated unexpectedly, by 2016 when he was eight years old, I informed him I was in Cedartown, Ga only 500 miles away. He said, "Walk." I believe and so does he in miracles. Who wouldn't walk 500 miles to reunite with their son? What would you do to reunite with your son or daughter? I support Life is Good's brand and celebrating kids.
As a nutra Metrix distributor for nutrition and supplementation, I was so thrilled to select a primary care physician in my hometown, right beside my high school where the staff are trained in the same education for nutrition and supplementation as I was in Florida. The low glycemic nutrition program although suitable for diabetes and pre diabetes patients is not exclusive for individuals with diabetes. The Transitions Lifestyle System taught me how to eat and the supplements helped to ensure all of my nutrition needs are met. Weight management, stress management and life management. Truly holistic health is life management.
