MY TWO YEAR BADGE

I can’t believe that it’s already been two years. Time does fly when you are having fun.

This blogging adventure started one month after I retired from my full-time job. Almost 40 years working as a physician, it was time to hang up the white coat and change my tennis shoes to comfy clogs. That I did …. and here I am. I have “met” incredible bloggers along the way, I have learned about so many different topics and have shared some of my knowledge. Some have come and gone while others have steadfastly remained to be friends for life. 

I must say I am very proud of this badge. It means a lot to me personally. I have managed to continue with this endeavor which I started by chance and didn’t know where it would lead.

To all who stop, comment, interact with “It Is What It Is”, I deeply thank you. You are teachers, educators and part of my inspiration. I hope to be as good as you are. 

THANK YOU

This is how is started 

“Dr. Rex”
I’m originally from Puerto Rico. I was born in Santurce and raised in Rio Piedras. I currently live in Florida – since 1999. I have a doctorate degree in Medicine; completed in 1976. My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico’s health system until 1985.

At this time, I’m happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I also worked for the government of Puerto Rico from 1979 through 1985 …. for a total of almost 40 years as a physician.

I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone “out there” who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is “eclectic” – a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor.

Metaphysical topics attract me. I’m interested in news – reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse – the “wrongly” affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I’m open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together.

To be one …. since we ALL are ONE!!

The future looks bright and promising!!!

We lose people in our lives so many times. The circumstances to each are different but it still hurts the same. 

They can be family members, friends (real life and cyberland), lovers, companions, co-workers, associates, neighbors, educators, mentors, people we admire and people we look up to. 

The circumstances to these loses are all different. As different as the components of the “relationship” may be. We may lose those close to us due to arguments, disagreements, misunderstanding, physical distances, different geographical locations, health issues and  something as final as death.

There are times when we feel all alone in this huge universe. There are times when all we need is a helping hand and a sympathetic ear. 

To my true friends out there, please know, I’m here …. and I won’t let you go!!

I watched a movie this weekend: Divergent and heard this song for the first time. I found a deep meaning in the lyrics. The song applies deeply to the movie line but I think that it applies to the many situations that we encounter in life.

The group comprises four Northern Irish members; Gary Lightbody (vocals, guitar), Nathan Connolly(guitar, backing vocals), Jonny Quinn (drums), Johnny McDaid (piano, guitar, backing vocals), and Scottish member Paul Wilson (bass guitar, backing vocals).

Initially an indie rock band, their first three records, the EP Starfighter Pilot (1997), and the studio albums Songs for Polarbears (1998) and When It’s All Over We Still Have to Clear Up (2001), were commercially unsuccessful and were released by the independent labels Electric Honey and Jeepster. The band signed on to the major record label Polydor Records in 2002.

Snow Patrol rose to national fame with their major label debut, Final Straw, in 2003. The album was certified 5× platinum in the UK and eventually sold over 3 million copies worldwide. Their next studio album, Eyes Open (2006), and its hit single, “Chasing Cars“, propelled the band to greater international fame. The album topped the UK Album Charts and was the best-selling British album of the year, selling over 6 million copies worldwide. In 2008, the band released their fifth studio album, A Hundred Million Suns; then, in 2009, they released their first compilation album, Up to Now; and, in 2011, released their sixth studio album, Fallen Empires.
