Prompt for the Day: “Price”

The marketing minded people at the Daily Post group of Word Press chose the word “Price” for today’s prompt to drive us to further creations.

Consider the Price

How much does you favorite things actually cost you to obtain?  Are actual things what makes you happy?  I generally prefer things that are free.  Meaning there is no cost associated with them.  I like just spending time with my husband.  Granted riding a motorcycle does cost by the use of gasoline required to power the vehicle, but at least, it is cheaper than riding around in a car or truck!  Rereading a good book cost nothing now when we purchased it years ago.

Cuddling up with our cat cost nothing except the price of feeding the animal.  (Have to also purchase clean litter for it to use.)  If we could just get it to refrain from biting us when he is pissed off!

Unfortunately, visiting the local library will cost the use of the local metro transit bus fees since I can no longer walk due to multiple sclerosis.  The average person could walk there for free.  You could check out a book while there at no cost.

Pease Help Fight Terrible Disease

The medicine my neurologist prescribed for me to treat my multiple sclerosis is called Tysabri. Trying to find the actual cost on the internet is basically nearly impossible. I remember when I first started on the drug the amount the facility tried charging me was well over $2500. There was no way my husband and I could afford then or every 28 days! Biogen (the company that manufactures the drug) has been helping us with some of the cost of the drug, but will not continue helping indefinitely. So I have started a Go Fund Me campaign.

Prompt for the Day: “Resolved”

The optimistic people at the Daily Post group of Word Press came up with today’s prompt of “Resolved” to try to inspire us.  They included a single question to further direct our writings for the day – “Have you ever made a New Year’s Resolution that you kept?”

Personally

I do not make or believe in New Year’s Resolutions.  Prefer to make the more achievable daily goals.  By limiting myself to daily goals, I set my sights on goals that are designed to be able to be completed each day.  Can’t imagine setting a goal for an entire year during its very beginning!  By making  what I refer to as “SMART” ( goals – Specific, Measurable, Action-oriented, Realistic, and Time defined), they are more likely to be successfully completed as planned!

Made smart goals long before I knew what I was doing.  Been setting goals for myself since early grade school.  Long before I moved into junior high school, was put in charge of getting the school’s computers up and working each day.  My sixth-grade year helped to reorganize the entire grade school’s library.  Think I had personally checked out and read every single book in the limited collection they had on hand.
