Who gets sucked in by marketing, me me me. I can’t believe I did that. Truly it was a mistake that cost me money, not much mind you apart from my pride and about $16
While flying through feeds I spied what I thought was a blogger talking about a cure for tiredness, you know there is no such thing right? A cure that is. I should have confirmed with my doctor don’t you think or a specialist of some description.
There is an official term for tiredness, the name escapes me, the majority of us are born tired as we scramble to keep up with the joys of life, family, work, house stuff.
I do not envy working families with youngsters, I think of them often and how hard it must be, with both parents working full time, I can scream tired.
We were fortunate to raise our girls on one wage when times were simpler. I can hear others shouting out that it could still be simple if we didn’t have wants and needs past our expectations.
But I don’t think it is as simple as that, try walking a mile in their shoes, see both sides of the story.
- ‘Slow your home’
- ‘Live simpler’
- ‘Buy less’
Gaining momentum, fits a lot of tribes, to see you have a following, more and more like minded people join your tribe makes sense to me.
I’m still happy with my
‘Don’t buy processed food’. Has it made a difference? I can’t honestly say that I pay that much attention anymore. Buying minimal processed food has become the norm.
I’m not baking bread from scratch or giving up my potato chips
That’s a good thing right? As I suspect the norm will become, buy less, simplify your life?
Then weary as I was…
I was sent a major cure for listlessness (advertisement) a three page explanation, oh my a miracle cure that was a simple potion. Who wants that, we don’t have to actually work for it either it comes in a bottle.
Bit like my hair colour.
A magic cure for listlessness, something to do with your thyroid (that’s the problem).
Last time I got sucked in it cost me $500 from a naturopath guru, all that did was a big FAT NOTHING.
Iodine is the key apparently
I searched the shops to find me some of this magic potion, which I dutifully took for three months. When in need I always buy this brand BioCeuticals which is normally provided by a trained practitioner. This time I got it over the counter?
Then I read the pamphlet that was tucked in the box, (three months later) for me that’s a first. Possible consequences of taking iodine have left me gagging.
If it works for you applause all round.
So that’s $16 and three months that I will never get back, ho hum
