WHO AM I?
Change is not easy for anyone. From an infant age until adult we are conditioned and taught how we should act, speak, and live. We allow others to influence and even sometimes make our decisions for us. We do so willingly because we are either scared of what may happen or afraid we will be frowned upon by our society. The sad thing is if you take a good hard look at our society it is not teaching us good respectable values. We have leaders stealing large sums of money from our country and businesses, we have false hopes being spoken at every turn, we have riots over who should live how, we have a government that is taking more and more of our rights away, and to top it all off God is allowed in a prison but not in a classroom, courtroom, or business, God is all but disappearing in the daily open lives of everyone. The things we are allowing ourselves to be taught and to influence us is to cheat, steal, lie, and to lay down and accept defeat! We the people, caught up in this mess of a rat race, are agreeing to these acts because we have lost our own hope, values, and will to fight.
The next time you are asked who you are think long and hard about what response you will give. Are you more than just a tired, worn out mom working at a minimum wage job, or is that all there is left of you to find? Find happiness in your self and learn to be happy in a rat race world. You can change your views and actions but I am sorry to say you can not change the actions or views of anyone else and you can not change the world. You can however act and react in an honest upstanding manner to be a better role model to those who know you best such as your children, family, friends, and religious groups.
"If you want to change something in your life or in this world start with an area where you can make a difference: YOU."
With the above departing thought I will end my rant, sermon, etc, contemplate who you "really" are, until next time on Life is Worth Living: Encounter, Experience, and Live it.
