When Life Creates Friction
Tim and I are about to go on an end-of-the-summer long weekend vacation this coming weekend. Upon return, I am taking two weeks off from blogging to organize the site and do some techy stuff behind the scenes. Since this is my departing post, I wanted to leave you with a post about a sensitive issue that you may also be experiencing…..
……..That issue is “Friction”.
When Friction Creates Sadness
You may recall that I turned 58 back in August. It seems that every year since I turned 50, there has been a new issue to deal with every single year. Each issue has been overcome, or I have accepted the new “thing” as part of how life will be from now on. But never in my wildest dreams did I expect “friction”. I try my best to do all the right things, practice healthy clean habits, keep my cool and not let things rub me the wrong way, don’t put a damper on things and stay far away from friction-causing situations to keep comfort in my life…. then lo and behold, I am slammed with unexpected friction.
When Friction Creates Pain
With shock and awe on the morning that I recognized that I had become a victim of friction, I started my overthinking process. What did I do wrong? Why was this happening to me? What did I do to deserve this? It was kind of sad to think that I had come this far in life to be presented with this new issue that I had never had to deal with ever before. Then, after a couple of weeks of feeling very uncomfortable, a simple solution appeared to me, seemingly right out of thin air………
BOOM! A Remedy for Friction
GOTCHA!!! What did you think I was talking about? Continue reading…..
…..I hope you find some humor in an actual issue I dealt with this super duper hot summer here in Georgia! I will not go into explicit detail, but I can tell you that my skin has now become more sensitive, in all areas of my body, now that I am deep into my 50s. And, it is good to know that I am not the only one, so praise the Lord for the inventor of this pink powder, the label is hilarious to me and makes me laugh every time I use it right after my shower and if I need a “touch up” throughout the day.
It really does work very well and is a great preventative with cooling and effective healing relief. This powder is talc-free and is an anti-friction dampness absorber. It is a satin smooth cornstarch base that also contains calamine (as in calamine lotion) as a drying, healing ingredient. Whether or not you are active or inactive, do yourself a favor and keep a bottle of this on hand, you will thank me!
I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I enjoyed writing it to provide you with entertainment and information. I’m off to have a banana now, ha!
