I am not sure where I really want to start today. I am suddenly finding myself facing some puzzling questions. I try to spend a lot of my time with the flowers, birds, well, nature in general and I find it keeps me grounded. Today, perhaps because of the gray clouds, it's lacking it's general healing properties for me.
There are so many life "laws" that seem so clear to me. Yet, time after time, I find that it seems to be only me that they are important to. Therefore, I wonder if my expectations are too high. I know I've always been stubborn but now I wonder if I've become an obstinate, non-compromising "know it all." Which begs to offer the next question I ask myself, "Am I going to become a hermit due to lack of intolerance?"
So, in order to help clear my head, I'm going to offer up some points of consideration. Perhaps in writing them down, I will be able to "let them go" and move on. You may want to cease reading here, if you haven't already.
1) Where does the safety of children fit in our society today?
2) Is personal accountability important?
3) Does a persons word mean anything?
4) Isn't physical abuse towards a woman unacceptable?
5) Shouldn't one intercede when abuse is happening?
6) Are good manners a thing of the past?
7) Do we ever really know someone?
8) Is it best to ignore injustices and to let "someone else" deal with it?
9) As a parent, when do we "let go."
10) Do others take the time to smell the flowers?
These are just a few of the questions I've been asking myself this week.
I think it's time to get my hands dirty and see if nature can spin it's magic on me now.
