Well, maybe this blog should have been written yesterday. Wednesday would have been a better "W" alliteration day. But it happens today. And that's all there is to it.
I have to be quick, because we are about to head off to a meeting where we will be told we have to wait even longer for some needed things to take place. That's the second "W" the first "W" is obviously from the Nano...even in my dreams I have been writing and planning out this book. It has been so incredible to see it coming together.
The third "W" is my rant for today. I wish people were not crazy. I wish that parents would not let their egos get in the way of doing what is best for their children. I wish there was a way to make people see when they are wrong, even when their heads are so full of lies and selfishness. But it seems that when a person is so used to lying and manipulating and using people for their own personal gain they begin to believe the lies they feed everyone. And finally I wish that there was a way for your internal truth to be on display for the world. So that people couldn't be swayed by the forked tongue, and believe the lies. I've heard they saying that time will tell. But how does that help us now?
How awesome would it be that when a person lied about something a big siren went off? I mean, sure some egos would get bruised when we ask our husbands if the outfit makes our butts look big, but at least we would know the truth, right? These people who live a life of lies not only hurt themselves, but everyone they encounter. Small lies or big, they all create negativity in the heart, and after so much negativity and lies have been told, I think it is the body's reaction to start believing the lies, because the truth is so skewed and forgotten it is easier that way.
But what do you do when the lies have a negative impact on someone you love? And the person spreading the lies is feeding them to people who need to know the truth? What do you do when it feels there is nothing you can do? I am in this situation and it pains me so much. Someone I love with all my heart hurts because of a person who can't stop lying. To their self and to everyone else they meet. They think the world is crazy, when it is just the lies that have corrupted and clouded their judgement. And that in itself is crazy making.
We bought our son a book about how to behave and why. Titled that as well. It says something that strikes hard: "Every time we tell a lie we mix ourselves up more. After a while almost no one will believe us-but worse than that-- We can't believe ourselves or anyone else, because we don't really know what the truth is any more than a penguin and that is a stupid way to live As anyone can tell you." I know that children start out telling lies to seem "cooler" or to show off, and even to get out of trouble.
Everyone has lied at some point, even if it is just telling someone who asks how you are doing, and you say "great" when you actually aren't doing well. But when a person doesn't learn when to stop, and they continue telling lies to look "cool" or to show off into adulthood, it is pathetic. But people do it because no one calls anyone out on their BS anymore. Not me. I'm ready. I'm not going to sit and have someone tell me lie after lie and listen to them. I am not going to let them hurt people I love because of a fabricated belief that what they are doing is okay, and good for something-when it is only causing grief and pain. There are rights, and there are wrongs. And we are doing no good to ourselves or the world if we don't stand up to these people and tell them they are wrong. Just because a man marries a woman, it doesn't give him the right to mistreat her; just because a person buys a pet, it doesn't give them the right to mistreat it; and just because a woman gives birth to a child, it doesn't give her the right to neglect them. No, there are rights in this world and more of them need to be encouraged. More people need to be held accountable for their actions, and more people need to learn the power of love, and LIVE it instead of just preaching it.
Please, give opinions. Give advice. Give love. To me, and those in your life. Pity those who can't feel love because of the damage they have done, and send them the healing energy of love in anyway possible. There is always hope...as long as there is love.
I have to get some of my book done. I am falling behind, and it is only the first week! We went to a field trip with our son today, what fun! I'll try to post about that...but I may not have time tonight. It's a date night with my Man and I. Much needed, and
Just a girl living and commenting on this wonderfully quixotic world we live in! I love creating things. Whether it is in the kitchen, for the home, or for my friends and family...it doesn't matter. Come explore, and if you like what you see let me know!
