Sometimes seeing how people see things outside of the Washington & NY bubble lets you know you're not alone. As Crazy as the world has gotten there are still many of us out here who see things from a different perspective. A real perspective because we are living and working in the real world. Working day to day to make the ends meet.
I am often amazed by how truly ridiculous life can be, petty jealousies, I/Me personalities and cattiness abounds. It makes me a little sad to see that we can't seem to learn from our mistakes. That as people, we are so busy trying to get ahead of everyone else that it is all too often, at the expense of each other.
Nothing in life is worth that people, no matter what God you believe in I know of no religion that teaches that as one of its key principles. With that being said, sometimes it is better to walk away from something then suffocate from all of that negativity. “Yes this is one of my hippie moments”.
In trying to do right by all I find myself at a crossroads were going with the flow is not an intelligent option. So what do you do when life gets in the way? How do you switch gears and regroup to find your footing on the path you're meant to be on? I know many people may argue that sometimes we have to suck it up and deal with it. Or quit whining and do something!
For me at least I am able to see it as one door closing and another opening to a new adventure. No matter what happens in life, or how upset I may get about things there is always a reason why things happen the way they do. It isn’t the end of the world until you curl up your toes and actually die, and thankfully I am a long way from that.
Being nasty to people doesn’t solve anything, nor does being sneaky and lying about someone you may not like. I can only feel sorry for people who feel that their happiness in life depends on bashing others. Its kind of pathetic if you ask me. Don’t get me wrong, I get angry at people but when you become an adult the hope is that you learn to stand up for yourself without causing harm to others.
I learned the hard way to believe in myself. Perhaps that is what this blog is about tonight, believing in who you are. There will always be people who will try to drive that bus right over top of you, but if you let them and do nothing you lose. So step aside I say, eventually they will drive that bus right into the wall all by themselves. Karma has a way of doing that to people.
So my goal for the summer is to start writing for real even if its a short story or an article or two.One of my favorite authors said, “People who write write, people who worry about every single word can waste a lifetime trying to write that great novel that never gets done. She by the way write, and has multiple books out their.
As a recently married 46 year old I am in the process of finishing my degree. Working to take care of my family and live my life.Blogging, working, writing, and chugging along like most of us. Who am I ? I am you, I am me, I am your mother, friend, the best and worst that we each have inside of us. I am a different perspective and find myself fascinated by the interesting moments in life.
