Store shelves have been "WIPED OUT"
The BOTTOM LINE is Venezuelan officials will confront the toilet paper shortage by importing 50 million rolls to meet demand.
INTESTINAL FORTITUDE: Venezuela’s monthly demand for toilet paper is about 125 million rolls a month, so when available folks now stock up.
While I did snicker when I first heard about the crisis in Venezuela, it is no laughing matter when basic needs are not met.
I feel for the Venezuelans.
When facing challenges, we do have a choice. We can choose to bury our head in the sand and still run the risk of getting our posterior hit. Or we can choose to face it head on.
Lately resignation has been seeping in. We are in transition, hubby is turning 65 and things are changing.
We have tried to be proactive, but curve balls are still thrown our way. The stress has lead to my going through the motions and being less mindful. Seeking comfort in food. There even have been times that I forgot to take my medication because my mind is elsewhere.
Worry does not solve anything, but it creeps to the forefront.
~INDYGIRL's blog spoke to me.
"Sigh. Life goes on. The lesson is that life does indeed go on and so should my healthy habits. I should not use things as excuses....The best medicine for me is nurturing my body and mind through things, like a good mother would her child."
Ah... to nurture. When I take care of myself it is easier to face the challenges.
