Let it go...




Feeling blue?

Feeling anxious, stressed and over whelmed?


The economy is strong.

Unemployment is low.

Yada, yada, yada.

But people aren't feeling like things are getting better.

Of course there isn't  just one reason for this dilemma, there are many.

But, I think the one that is doing the most damage to society in general is something I call Trump Fatigue.

It's that daily if not hourly continuous barrage of minutia coming at us from every conceivable
nook and cranny about this president and his administration.

It's every where, every minute of every day and there's no escaping it.

It's down right exhausting!

It's all the salacious, undignified, brazen and blatantly conflict ridden abominations flowing out of the White House every single day.

It's been one year and there is no sign of it ending any time soon.

And so we are buried under so much minutia that we aren't focused on what's really important.

There is just too much to sort through.

The danger is that everyone will throw up their hands and give up. It's easier to accept defeat than to wade through a ton of crap every single day.

But remember this:

that's how democracies fall!

That's how dictators rise!


So, take your vitamins and get out your shovels...there's a heck of a lot of crap to clean up before we can fix this.


If all of this makes you feel agitated, anxious and maybe even a little angry, take a deep breath...let it out slowly and count to ten.


And if that doesn't help, try this courtesy of The Big Bang Theory...




Stay strong!

Perspective...




Here at It's Noodle! we've noticed an increased amount of stress and anxiety as we try to keep up with the latest political news.

There is SO MUCH noise out there.
We were feeling overwhelmed and emotionally depleted.

Then we read this statement. We thought we'd pass it on.

Amid the twitter storms and 24 hour news cycle's and constant controversy., it might be good to remember this;

IN ONE HUNDRED YEARS, THERE WILL BE ALL NEW PEOPLE!

Keep things in perspective and breath...




Have a wonderful weekend...

If wishes were horses...





File this under: you can't make this sh*t up...

Ivanka Trump plans to be the first woman president when her fathers term is up.

She and Jared decided that she would be the one to run first, so there's that...

And next week I will be the head of surgery at Johns Hopkins.

Or the Queen of France, I haven't decided yet.




Have a wonderful weekend!

A brand new year...






It's the end of 2017.

How did we ever make it through?

This year was filled with chaos, division, protests and some of the worst natural disasters we've ever seen..

Terrorist attacks both foreign and domestic.

Income inequality became wider.

Then there's the opioid epidemic and unimaginable amounts of gun violence.

Poverty is on the rise.

For the first time people are dying younger...

Some might say it's looking pretty bleak.

So, will 2018 be better?

Only if we make it better.

It all ends up trickling down to us. ( that, I suspect is the real meaning of trickle down )

So what can we do?

We can be kind. We can be sensitive to the feelings of others.

We can take little steps.

We can reach out, lend a hand, give an hour or two.

Make a call.

Tutor a child.

Start a conversation.

Donate to a worthy cause.

Volunteer.

Start a movement!

One candle really can light the darkness.

One person really can make a difference.

Let's all quit procrastinating and saying we'll do it tomorrow.

Let's do it now.

Let's make some noise, let's change the world!



Happy New Year!
