A Way

Standard

I get frustrated, sad, angry and depressed.  I have to its my job.  In the words of Queen ‘Under Pressure’  that is my life.  I would ask for peace and I was given grief.  I would say here and they would say there.  I took all the options I had and slowly they were taken from me.  People say why don’t you do anything about your life? Well if something did go right soon it was taken away.  I have been continually told “no” so I started shouting “no” in response and if I protest then, I am told I have a bad attitude.  I lost everything family, friends, career, thoughts and ability to live freely.  Shouting yes was inappropriate but when you have been slapped in the face after being told you can’t have anymore trauma to the eye, refused proper medical care and all I did was shout “no” I think under the circumstances I composed myself well. There is a way to protest, a way to argue with keeping the dignity and respect of all involved.  Find it. Live it. Breathe it.

The Goal

Standard

The Emmys are on tonight and every year I always say that it was a privilege to be able to see your talent.  I also say that regardless of whether or not you won you deserve the accolades for your abilities to portray so many different people.  That is still true.

However the joyfulness of the Emmys is tainted this year by the events occurring around the world.  There are protests and military actions along with worldwide flooding due to hurricanes and other extreme weather phenomenons.  Some people say this is regular others say it is apart of global warming.  No matter what you understand or believe it to be. The world is in turmoil.

What can we do? Support your neighbor, mend fences and heart and above all, remember how would you feel in the same situation.  Conquering may get you fame but I don’t think Ivan the Terrible wanted the reputation he ended up carrying as history repeats his atrocities.  So think back to the mistakes of the past and with all your efforts don’t repeat them. Be love, envision harmony, care for yourself, family, friends and even strangers along with everyone in between and world peace can be obtained.

Behavior

Standard

There is so much I could write about that would let people see how I feel about their actions and behavior.  On the other hand,  one of the greatest insights to teaching, parenting or even relating to strangers is yes first impressions are good but what is that based on.  That  idea is a derivative of the concept of modeling the behavior you want.  From a person who feeds off of others thoughts this can be hard but sometimes you still have to be the person you want to be and soon that genuinely gentle behavior will be given in return.
