Choices

Image

You know some things are just out of your control-they just happen upon you, or do they?  Are we subjective to the circumstance or the environment or do we choose it?  I find myself in a quite sticky situation.  Without revealing family details, I have been gifted this young man.  In the midst of taking this unexpected joy on, I find myself in constant turmoil with another whom has fallen to the depths of drugs, meth-the thief of souls.  Do I choose the chaos and vague threats or are they thrust upon me by the demons of meth?  I continue to deal with it when what I want is for this person to stop-just stop and choose your children instead of tormenting me and others for taking on the responsibilities of raising your children, just stop-stop using the drugs, stop threatening, stop dealing, stop interfering-just stop.  Let the kids recover from the clenches of Meth-let them heal and stop-just stop causing grief to those that are attempting to help.  Are we choosing this chaos or are we just victims of the situation?

Knives within Silence-Healing the Wound

The following video is part one in  a series that my students are going to create to address the power behind words-in this video the setting on the camera was set to low so the video quality is bad, and it is my first official interview, so sometimes I am not the best host, but I think her message surpasses any of my newbie errors.  She wants to tape it again with better graphics, so I told her we would.  When we do it, I’ll upload it here.  She is an amazing child that is still struggling-keep her in your thoughts and heart, and remember, she isn’t alone.

I find it amazing how some parents still believe that kids are just kids, and when they hurt others, they are still just being kids.When I think of how I was tortured and tormented while growing up, I don’t get this lackadaisical feeling that my nefarious ‘friend’ was just being a kid when she purposely hurt and humiliated me because of what I didn’t have-hmph! Kids being kids-really?!?  

If my kids ever exhibited these kinds of behaviors that Hailey discusses or that I went through, they wouldn’t see the light of day unless I was by their sideI’d be their official stalker until the lesson of humility, kindness, and compassion was ingrained into every breath they took.

Knives within Silence

I’m uploading the interview into youtube right now-I will link it to the title as soon as it completes.  I tried to embed it into the post, but I continually ran into difficulty.

BP10!!!! Yep-Bet THAT Grabbed Your Attention

I can see each of you scrambling around, opening windows, scrolling through assignments, panic stricken-going-WHAT?!? ANOTHER ONE!?!  You know those little angel guys and devil guys that hang out around on our shoulders-well, devilish won out this morning. LOL  I just couldn’t resist the urge to create havoc, so all could run ‘amuck’ in chaos with me this morning.  EG  

So, calm down-NO! You can’t fly or drive to Texas and shoot me-IT IS ILLEGAL-just in case you didn’t know.  LOL  Take a deep breath, don’t hold it too long or you may pass out, then let it go, turn on the music, strip down to what you were born with (NO-don’t video tape it-my stomach is already feeling queasy-so we really don’t need that iMovie shared-G) and dance around like Tom Cruise in Risky Business-or I think that was the movie, or you can pretend to be in Flash Danceand yes, PUN intended-hehehehe.  Anyway, just celebrate that we survived-we made it-we didn’t give up-we conquered ETC together!  YES!  And-we gained a wealth of ideas, techno tools, lessons, and skills necessary to engage anyone in any setting.  We are the Skywalkers of education-maybe we don’t look as peaceful and secure within the havoc as Luke Skywalker does in Star Wars, but HEY-looks aren’t everything-the end result and confidence beats out make-up and clothes any day of the week!  

Don’t celebrate too long-Capstone is due on Monday, and, well-if you were to show up to your campus/school naked, you would get fired, arrested, and who knows what else, so celebrate a little bit, then get dressed-stop scaring your cats and dogs-finish your Capstone paper, and let’s dive into our next course together-with the force of determination with us, success blowing through our hair, and ideas flowing like Mozart-ready or not Training and Motivational Development-here we come-we sure hope you are ready!  🙂  MUhahahahahahahadang-I’m going to have to shoot that little devil guy!
