CREATE: My one little word for 2020

The root of my one little word for 2020 came in the raw days following my father’s passing. While sifting through old photographs, I came across a letter he wrote to me during my senior year of college as I was caught in the triumphs and labor of writing my senior thesis. In the letter, he congratulated me on some advances with my research and wrote: 

“We are so proud of you working so hard and setting such high goals for yourself. Mom and I love you so much and are totally committed to helping you enjoy a happy and productive life.”

His words remind me of how incredibly lucky I am to have been given such a wonderfully supportive and strong foundation in life. How can I not take chances, put myself out there, and yes, create? 

So I began exploring this word: What do I want to create? Here are a few thoughts: 

Create attention to the “Now” (the present moment).

Create memories with my family. 

Create professional and personal pieces of writing.

Create lessons that grow student readers and writers. 

Create opportunities to connect with others. 

So, I begin this new decade with an open heart, and the drive and confidence to create; my one little word honoring the loving foundation that my father gifted to me.

Dad and I during my junior year of college in Paris.

  1. I run a vape store submission site and we have had a listing from a vape store in the USA that likewise offers CBD items. A Calendar month later, PayPal has written to use to say that our account has been limited and have asked us to remove PayPal as a payment solution from our vape store web directory. We do not retail CBD products such as CBD oil. We merely offer online marketing services to CBD firms. I have visited Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Well known Wellness Retail store and if you take a good look, you will witness that they offer a rather substantial series of CBD items, primarily CBD oil and they also happen to take PayPal as a payment solution. It appears that PayPal is employing double standards to different firms. As a result of this restriction, I can no longer take PayPal on my CBD-related website. This has constricted my payment choices and right now, I am intensely reliant on Cryptocurrency payments and straightforward bank transfers. I have talked with a solicitor from a Magic Circle law firm in London and they explained that what PayPal is undertaking is definitely not legal and inequitable as it ought to be applying a consistent benchmark to all companies. I am still to speak to yet another legal representative from a US law practice in The city of london to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the United States. In the meantime, I would be extremely appreciative if anyone here at targetdomain could provide me with different payment processors/merchants that deal with CBD firms.
