Productivity … Balance … Faith

PRODUCTIVITY comes easy because society approves of it.
BALANCE does not come quite as easy because society prefers keeping people busy so they are too tired to see what needs to be seen and to change what needs to be changed..
FAITH is the hardest work I have ever done because I have learned we have to trust God 100%, which means giving up control and giving up what other people think about us and our choices.
After trying all three ways to live, FAITH in God wins by a landslide!

The RISE of a TYRANT

The timing of writing and sharing this truth is perfect as we witness the tyrant of our times wield his newly-gained power. Shakespeare revealed what was happening in his time and warns, in detail, how a tyrant rises to power.

LEADERS LEAD US Down A Path

Many people will say anything to get what they want. Sometimes they will even do anything to get what they want.

But as history shows, it is time that reveals the truth about what is driving someone’s words and actions.

MEAN PEOPLE Are BROKEN PEOPLE

No matter who they are in our lives, mean people hurt us until we learn they are broken people who need help. This does not mean they will want our help, but it does mean we learn not to retaliate in kind, but to find safe, respectful ways to respond and if necessary to leave, especially if we are at risk of personal harm to ourselves or others.

In the bigger picture of life, broken people often take on leadership roles.

Regardless of their audience, broken people seek to break other people, consciously or not, by devaluing, controlling, dehumanizing. ignoring, or even discarding them in any ways they can get away with. And since there are different degrees of being broken, people less broken or broken in different ways, may not recognize the brokenness or if they do, are broken enough to not be motivated to step in and stop the breaking being done … but that apathy can be countered by raising awareness, fostering growth, and facilitating healing.

In Taylor Swift’s following song and video, one line sums up a broken person’s reality,  “You don’t know what you don’t know.”

A DAY TO REMEMBER

Every day we live is a day to remember

What kind of day depends on many things.

Things we cannot control…

  • Who loves us
  • Who does not love us
  • Who values … respect us
  • What people think of us
  • What people say about us
  • How people treat us
  • Our surroundings
  • Our circumstances
  • The state of our community
  • The state of our country
  • The state of the world

Things we can control

  • Whom we love
  • Whom we love who does not love us
  • Whom we value … respect
  • What we think of people
  • What we say about people
  • How we treat people
  • How we deal with our surroundings
  • How we deal with our circumstances
  • How we impact our community
  • How we impact our nation
  • How we impact the world

Everyone contributes to the world we share because everyone matters

How does not even matter as much as why we do what we do

Because at the end of the day peace only comes to those whose motives are good

Why TED Just Could Be MY TRIBE

During his Super Soul Sunday interview by Oprah legendary surfer Laird Hamilton shared how difficult life was for him until he “found his tribe.”

I sense I may just have found mine … finally 😊

https://www.facebook.com/TED/

WANT TO KNOW WHY?

Ever since I was a little girl I have been driven to stand up for those being hurt or harmed, even when I couldn’t or didn’t know how to stand up for myself in a good way. For a while, because of what I saw and experienced, I became incredibly angry at the world and people. I lashed out until I found the answers and healing I needed, plus a tool to help create the needed changes.

And now I know leaving behind my loved ones to live their lives as they choose with their families is not about leaving them behind, but about moving towards the family I have been waiting for … people dedicating their lives to others with their children … not actual children but with their creative, innovative ideas like my “Connecting The Dots With The Respect Principle.”

Thank God for turning all the bad into something good and useful.
