I’m rarely a cynical person, I try to be positive in many things. However the climate we live in is making us all suspicious and stopping to ask hard questions. We see bad things happening all the time and we have become jaded and see the world for what it’s becoming instead of what it can be. My hope for the future is a return to idealism and dreams without the doubts and negative space.
The Christmas spirit is about helping others, giving your time and loving your neighbors as yourself. All of this comes from a youngster from Bethlehem who came to give His life to humanity.
I am not an expert on taxes but if a tax plan doesn’t pay for itself or at least comes out balanced then perhaps it shouldn’t be forced upon the people who will have to pay for it. Here’s a hint, its not the billionaires or the super millionaires, it will be people who are of middle class and limited means. I am not certain anyone in Washington knows what they are doing.
I did call my senators to express my opinion and I hope it helps to persuade them but I am not holding my breath since they are a part of the problem.
I have been disappointed and I am sure I have disappointed people. We all need to give ourselves a break. Being human is a hard thing to be but its all we are. Getting our hopes up can be dangerous due to the fragile nature of our feelings and emotions. For me being a people pleaser makes the disappointment thing that much harder to cope with. All I can say is that disappointment is a hard habit to break.

The world is full of anxiety. We are on edge about a lot of things. Sleep is difficult and dreams are not always sweet. Perhaps we need to breathe more and turn off all the bad news. Well its hard to do all that. What’s going on world, why are we so wound up? Peace come soon over all of us.
Some folks these days want to turn back the clock it seems. As much as they would love to go back to a time when they didn’t have to encounter people who are different from them they just can’t do it in reality.
If they could, then they should go all in. Let’s get rid of modern conveniences like The Internet and cool things like Amazon and Netflix. Make it hard to breathe and fewer restaurant choices. Medicine, who needs things to keep diabetics and others with chronic illnesses from suffering. Our cars can get less miles to the gallon and our roads won’t be as nice either.
We can go on and on in turning the clock back so that some people feel more powerful and entitled. My friends the world is a scary place these days because a lot of people are afraid out there of change because they don’t want to have to move forward. We all have a choice to embrace the future where everyone has a say and is equal or backwards where some folks live in a lot of fear. Let’s keep the ball of life moving forward because we can’t go backwards, at least I hope so.
For me selfies are a snapshot of how one is feeling and experiencing life in a singular moment. It doesn’t have to be about being narcissistic or self-absorbed. But you and I know sometimes its about saying look at me, look at me. I want you to see me in all my glory. Selfies have a purpose but they can also be a mirror into the soul and the soul isn’t always happy go-lucky. So snap a self picture when it tells your story in the moment.
Be the star of your own blog. Your story is important.
Office politics is a reality workers face. It’s not fun. However it’s not the reason you exist for your job it’s the end user, the customer, the client, the student, the volunteer. People who benefit from your work should be the primary mission of anyone on the job. Yes politics is a real issue in any office situation that can discourage us but it shouldn’t deter us from accomplishing our goals or performing tasks at hand. Keep on working and keep the main thing the main thing and hopefully that will take care of business.
