Picture not really relevant to the post, but pretty to look at!
Another teachers gift....
Today is day one of summer vacay with the girls home. So far so good. They are watching some movie they recorded on the Disney Channel, and I am doing a really good job at putting off starting my day.
Plenty to do, I just don't feel like doing any of it. I suppose I'll be fine once I get started.
I always hate reading cryptic blog posts. Especially juicy ones. You know the ones. The ones that hint at a juicy tale. A good old fashioned she said this, she did that.... blah, blah, blah.... but never give your the gory details. ;)
Well, I'm about to get cryptic. And really it's the only way to go. You don't want to be dragging all your dirty laundry out.
I'm feeling much better as of yesterday, but the few days prior to that were kinda rough.
I've been trying to sort out in my own mind what would cause some people to behave the way they do.
Why they would feel it was necessary to go out of their way to do hurtful things.
Why they would suddenly turn on you. Try to turn others against you.
By my age, I really had assumed I wouldn't have to be dealing with stunts such as these.
Once you get past the initial sting of a perceived hurt, you really only have two ways to go. You can fight back, or you can just go on down the road.
I've always been a go on down the road type of person.
Don't get me wrong. I will fight back if necessary.
But, I choose my battles. I decide who and what is important in my life. I decide (for now) how I will let someone else's negative actions affect my kids.
So, I'm going to go on down the road...and I won't look back.
Well, maybe I will look back. Just to see how such actions will back fire. Because they always do. It may not be today. Or tomorrow, but when you go out into the world with the intent to hurt others, you will inevitably get it back double.....
