I, AnnaMariah, was at a talk recently and the speaker was Oregon Congressman, Greg Walden, who is chairman of the Energy and Commerce Committee’s Subcommittee on Communications and Technology. In this role, he worked to pass legislation to grow American jobs by expanding access to wireless broadband – i.e. 5g networks. He was a dynamic speaker who sincerely seems to believe that rolling out 5g networks nationwide is a positive thing.
With great feeling, he discussed the sad case of tens of thousands of people in rural areas without access to cell reception or the internet. I could feel those around me agreeing that everyone needs and deserves access to high-speed internet and that anything else is unimaginable.
As women, we are often taught that we take care of everyone else first, and then if there is time and money left over, we take care of ourselves. What most of us don’t realize is that by doing that we are allowing ourselves to become de-energized – we are exhausted, possibly in pain, and lose the enthusiasm we once had.
When we are de-energized we actually become less able to take care of everything and everyone else.
