A Widow Penned A Passionate Defense Of Patton Oswalt’s Recently Announced Engagement

Image
Getty Image Last year, Patton Oswalt’s worst nightmare became all too public when one morning he found his wife passed away in their bed. His public grieving brought us closer to his pain as he tried to recover into some semblance of normalcy while he continued to care for his seven-year-old daughter, but for some, it was intense knowing how utterly gutted Patton was.The internet devolved into the cesspool that boils up all too often at times, but for every single troll, it seemed like ten empathetic souls reached out to Patton and helped him get back on his feet. Losing a partner, one that you created a life with, can bring a pain that is unfathomable to most. That’s why the recent announcement that Oswalt was getting engaged to actress Meredith Salenger put some off with its relative quickness. Maybe they thought he was supposed to be miserable forever, or until the masses on Twitter deemed it appropriate for him to love again.This led to widow Erica Roman writing a passionate defens…

How to Make a Calm Down Jar

Image
When your child becomes anxious or upset, it may seem impossible to console them. It often takes more than just a few soothing words to bring them back from the verge of a tantrum or nervous episode—it takes something like a calm down jar. Calm down jars are a type of craft therapy that allows agitated children to refocus their attention on something pretty and peaceful, which can have a tremendous tranquilizing effect. To create your own calm down jar at home, you’ll need a plastic jar or bottle, a little hot water, a few drops of food coloring and some glitter.EditStepsEditFilling the Calm Down JarChoose a suitable container. For your calm down jar, you can start with any safe, transparent container. Plastic containers will be your best bet, as they’re less likely to break and cause accidents. The container you go with should have a solid one-piece lid or cap that screws on and stays put.[1] Mason jars are a good place to start if you have older children that you trust to handle glas…

Samuel L. Jackson Will Be Making Another Marvel Appearance Aside From ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

Image
Disney/Marvel American treasure Samuel L. Jackson has another Marvel appearance on the way to give you a series of bad ideas about whether or not you should give a fashion eyepatch a whirl.Entertainment Weekly reports that Jackson will be playing Nick Fury in the upcoming Captain Marvel adventure starring Brie Larson. Marvel hasn’t confirmed the news (they like to keep a few secrets), but EW‘s sources say Fury is a go for the film. We haven’t seen Jackson in the MCU since 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron which seems like ages ago in superhero blockbuster years. Now he’s got Avengers: Infinity War and Captain Marvel on his schedule which is a welcome route for Fury returning to action.Speaking of Nick Fury’s hiatus between appearances, Jackson talked about one MCU movie he felt snubbed from back in February. The subject came up in an interview with We Got This Covered springing off the subject of a possible Nick Fury solo film.Yeah, I’d love to do a Nick Fury movie. I’m always open and ga…

How to Grow and Care for Asiatic Lilies

Image
Asiatic lilies are easy to care for and thrive in a variety of climate zones. They do need a period of cooler temperatures to overwinter, so they aren’t the best choice for locations that are warm year-round. For the healthiest outdoor garden, choose a planting area with well-drained soil that receives lots of sunlight. Plant your bulbs in the fall to keep your lilies on their normal bloom cycle. You can also grow Asiatic lilies in containers any time between early spring and late fall. Just make sure the pot you use is deep enough to encourage a strong root system.EditStepsEditPlanting in a GardenChoose plants hardy for your zone. Asiatic lilies are generally hardy plants, but need a cool period for overwintering. For this reason, they’re not the best choice for outdoor gardens in regions that don’t experience cooler winter temperatures.[1] Your local home improvement store or nursery will likely carry plants appropriate for your area. Check with staff for help choosing plants that wi…

The Compound Interest of Building a Great Career

Image
Anyone who spends much time paying attention to their finances eventually begins to appreciate the raw power of compound interest.It’s simple, really. Let’s say you put $20 in a bank account that earns 5% interest a year. At the end of that year, you have $21, right? Well, if you leave that money alone, that dollar you earned in interest begins to earn interest itself. So, after the second year, you actually have $22.05 in the account. After the third year, you have $23.10 in the account. And then $24.16, and $25.22, and so on and so on and so on.If you leave an account alone, in other words, and the account earns interest, the growth of that money will start to accelerate. It will earn more money each year than it did in the previous year without you lifting a finger.That’s how wealth is built. That’s why so many people who are serious about building wealth talk about patience. They talk about not spending your money and saving it instead, because if you put it in savings and just le…

How to Talk to Loved Ones About Their Mental Illness

Image
Supporting and talking to a loved one with mental illness can make a world of difference. To have a meaningful conversation, find a safe place where your loved one can open up to you about their struggles. As you talk, express your support and commitment to their mental health while allowing them to guide the discussion. If they would like your help, you can reach out to professionals and groups for more information. It is important to stay in contact with your loved one, even after having a talk with them. Even short conversations can have a large impact.EditStepsEditStarting the ConversationFind a way to talk privately. The best place to have a conversation is in a private, quiet area. Your loved one should feel secure and comfortable in this space. You might have the conversation while talking a walk, or you might sit them down in your living room, kitchen, or bedroom.[1] Minimize distractions as much as possible. Turn off the TV and music. If there are other people in the room, ask…
