BE AN ICON defines it this way

1: a person or thing widely admired, especially for having significant influence or significance in a particular sphere  a civil rights icon  an actor and fashion icon

2: EMBLEM, SYMBOL   Rosie the Riveter, a WWII [World War II] cultural icon with her blue jumpsuit and red bandana, represented the women who went to work at manufacturing hubs across the nation

3   a: a graphic symbol on a computer display screen that represents an app, an object (such as a file), or a function (such as the command to save)

b: a sign (such as a word or graphic symbol) whose form suggests its meaning

I bought a t-shirt at a garage sale that said “Be An Icon” in bold print. Underneath in tiny letters it said justice. Justice could be branding, I’m not sure But the T-shirt got me thinking about this part of the definition “a person or thing widely admired, especially for having significant influence or significance in a particular sphere a civil rights icon an actor and fashion icon”.

I was thinking more about civil rights and social justice or simply being a person people can look up to or look to.  Not necessarily famous but someone you can rely on. I picture civil rights icons like John Lewis or Martin Luther King as people that could be relied upon. 

Living well working on healing and helping others heal or work through whatever they are going through. This is what I strive to be.  Not perfect but honest and forthright with what I’m going through. Being able to stay focused and positive is goal worthy. Life can be hard when all you see is the negatives of what you deal with.

Dealing with all that life throws at you these days is hard. Life is sucky. Medical appointments have been many,  19 in 14 days, it’s exhausting.   I have an appointment on Tuesday and two appointments on Wednesday this week.  

WHAT DO I do?  Life just gets crazier. I would love to feel better and have permanent teeth. This is another thing that bothers me. I could have posts implanted in the top but I am afraid that it might cause more problems. I’m not sure what to do or what to think. How do I make a sane rational decision? I also think that the upper plate is too thick. No one listens to me though. I don’t see the 0dentist until December. I also have another pet scan in December. So what do I do? Perhaps I need to message the dental specialist and tell her what I am thinking. I hate putting the teeth in. it’s uncomfortable. But I need to practice. What does Bruce think about implants? It has to be a decision made by both of us.  

Until a decision is made…

Eyes Forward
