A Brief Background
When I was 14, I was relocated from my mother, in Texas, to my Stepfather’s relatives in Michigan. My mother and stepfather lived a hazardous lifestyle of drugs and illegal activity. I was taken to Michigan by my stepfather and placed in foster care because he pled guilty to charges of sexual abuse that involved me while I was put into his relatives' home. (they were equivalent to my step-aunt and uncle) Brenda and Neil Gerber took me in at the age of 14 and, as teachers, were a very positive influence that completely changed my life. This influence prepared me for a very positive, ethical, and essentially a higher moral way of living because I was exposed to a very different perspective from my mother’s influence. Later I got married at 21, worked at a bookstore for 8 years, became a flight attendant, worked as a substitute teacher and a preschool teacher when my daughter was 3.
Within modern society, most of us, and indeed our kids, have electronic apparatus with screens. There is considerable discussion over the implements of screen control and disclosure of violence in video games. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), some of the rigid protocols for screen time may be unnecessary, indicating that not all time kids contribute to screens, including digital devices, is harmful (AAP, 2020). The AAP suggests a balance between the rising dependency on technology and what is healthful for youthful and growing minds (AAP, 2020).
Virtually all of the most prosperous individuals in the world propose something in common, having a life coach or mentor to encourage them along their path. I want to explore further what being a life coach entails and why it’s the most decisive resolution you’ll forever make.
Being separated from your child is the hardest thing any loving parent can go through. Words can’t begin to describe the feelings of loss, emptiness, and sadness that a parent can feel during this time. Because of COVID 19, my stepson reached out to me and his did for the first time in 5 years of separation. While COVID 19 has been a traumatic experience for everyone, I am Thankful that the recent events had allowed people to come together in a virtual world using modern communication that would not have been an option 20 years ago.
Wine therapy can be defined as a series of refinement strategies that employ red wine and must. Must is the repeatedly crushed fruit juice that consists of the skins, seeds, and fruit stems. The substantial part of the must is called pomace and generally produces up 7–23% of the must's absolute substance, making it the initial step in the winemaking process (A History of Wine as Therapy, 1964). A beauty treatment born in France to obtain the most from the antioxidant, toning, and detoxifying properties of grapes promptly escalated to the rest of the world, notably in Italian wine lands (A History of Wine as Therapy, 1964).
As one of the original alcoholic drinks of contemporary human civilization, wine has imparted itself into practically every significant religion of the world. Since the birth of time, the doctrines of Europe and the Middle East gradually embodied this “nectar of the gods“ into their observances, declaring its fame and continuity throughout generations and millennia of individual growth. During great courses of time, the recipe of wine was secured as a mystery of religious faiths and influential established families of Sumerian and Egyptian authorities (Fuller, 1996). When wine eventually reached Ancient Greece and Rome, it created an original set of gods and rites focused on this compelling alcoholic drink (Fuller, 1996). As those ancient civilizations collapsed, wine worked to withstand the dark and middle ages under the preservation of Jews and Christians, instructed by various wine displays in the Bible (Fuller, 1996).
