A problem so big not even Trump can help you with it

About every fourth year the same thing continues to amaze me.

And that is the genuine hope that some have, that their chosen one as President will make their lives so much better. Every election cycle seems to be more intense, more important and more ground breaking than the last one. With every election we’re being told how this is ‘the most important election ever’ or ‘how this is election is going to fundamentally change the country.’ It’s just simply beyond my comprehension how anyone can believe that their lives are so dependant on one single person. Of course it’s not.

Not in a million years.

At the time of this writing, it’s one week left until the 2020 US Presidential Election and people have been protesting, looting, arguing, killing and even broken up with each other over which of two old men well beyond the age of 70 is most fit to lead their country.

It really seems like something out of a comic book story.

Both are being accused of lying. One is hardly out there seeing anyone, the other makes two or three appearances a day, leading up to election night.

I won’t even begin to debate which one is better.

Because the truth is, it really doesn’t matter.

If it’s Trump who wins, it’s still going to be a cold day come November 4th. If it’s Biden who wins, it’s still going to be a cold day come November 4th.

That job presentation you were to give has to be given if Trump wins.

That job presentation you were to give has to be given if Biden wins.

You were going to run out of milk if Trump had won.

You were going to run out of milk if Biden had won.

You see where I’m going with this? The outcome of the election doesn’t matter at all for your personal life. You’re going to have ups and downs no matter what. The bad stuff that was going to happen, will happen. And the good stuff that was going to happen, will also happen.

If you planned to buy milk at the convenience store on your way back from work, but you forgot your wallet in your car and Biden won, do you think he’d magically appear in front of the cashier, giving you money to buy the milk?

With a glowing halo above his head?

You already know the answer to that.

Life is going to happen no matter what.

And it’s the same thing with your health. Both your physical and your mental health. If you have bad flare ups from your chronic pain disorder, neither Trump or Biden is going to save you from that. And quite frankly, I don’t think neither one’s health policy is going to help you much at all. You may get some cheaper medicines and less paperwork. Perhaps you’ll also save a couple of hundred bucks a year on your health insurance.

But in the end, a genuine change in your health is all about the little moves you make yourself.

Such as accepting that it’s going to take a lot of time and work.

That you need to be patient.

That you need to stop eating so much processed foods, especially if you consume a lot of sugar and alcohol.

If you’re a couch potato you have to do something about it. Work out, one way or the other. Could be as easy as doing push ups in your living room or actually signing up for a gym membership.

And then, there’s the ‘accelerator’ or ‘booster’ that potentially can help speed up the pain reduction process.

Of course, this depends on a myriad of factors such as your past medical history, your current exercising and dieting regime, your other illnesses and disorders and a lot of other devices that I don’t know. Only a qualified medical professional should answer those questions.

That being said, many people who have used CBD oil have said they’ve gotten a new life after they started using it.

However, most of these people actually kicked their bad habits like poor dieting and no exercising in addition to applying patience.

So if you’re ready for a significant change in your life, you understand that neither Biden or Trump can help you and you understand that change doesn’t happen over night…

…then all you have to do is click your way to the nearest CBD oil store and get some of your lovin’.

Remember, each day that you didn’t take action is another day where your pain gloats.

And soon, it’ll all be too late.
