We might interpret the smallest atom in a far different way in your review, versus my review. Clearly, most of us have not come to terms with the enormous amount of differences of opinion on every available subject. Some of us are supercritical, and judge with eagle eyes. It is our job to find mistakes. Others like to slip things by stretching the norms a bit. I suppose that is where most of our questions find themselves in jeopardy.
In order to accomplish just about anything in life, you need courage. Surprisingly, we all have varying degrees of it at any given time. When young athletes are anxious to play rather than always sitting on the bench, they must muster the courage to approach the coach and also be able to take the rejection. The important thing is they stood up for themselves. Speaking to a teacher regarding an academic issue can render the same kind of frustration and anxiety.
There is an onslaught of advice regarding parenting skills. If one attempts to find information, they will probably be inundated with more than they wanted. Sifting through all of this information is next to impossible. I must admit it is interesting, and it provides so many interesting views on discipline and nurturing and ways one should go about it. The limitless supply of help leaves one confused regarding the implementation of it.
I search all the time for goals and objectives. As soon as I reach one goal or tire from the effort and accept defeat, I begin the search for a new goal. Many people have confessed to me they feel lost and close to worthlessness in their lack of contributions to society. They research highly motivational undertakings. Many attempt wild and difficult activities. I respect and admire such an effort.
Many young families need two incomes in order to make ends meet. This inevitably leads to both parents working. Tired parents may not always have the stamina to focus on their children. How difficult it is, to find the endurance through some sort of compromise. It might be possible for each of the parents to have set nights to take care of the children. It might also take turns tucking children into bed. Whatever the system one chooses, children can’t be ignored or neglected. Balancing our schedules, and making it work, with no compromising of our children’s’ needs is a tough task to accomplish.
Don’t you just hate the game playing we go through at any gathering of friends or relatives? I know I do. No matter how many times I try to keep it at bay, it appears again in my life. I am resolved to acknowledge, there is no end to it until we all stop. I call the petty, irritating things we do to each other, the game points. Some of us perhaps plan for the tournament, and enter the environment or arena, ready to do battle. There are those days when we are not ready, willing or able to do any engaging at all.
I was listening to a young friend talking the other day and couldn’t help but smile. His voice, which normally had an air of youthful authority, was suddenly direct even and faster than normal. Of course he had an important message to give so I could see why his words were swift.
What surprised me was how different he sounded. You could hear his maturity in his speech. There was no need for his usual pushy and aggressive attitude. His voice had changed to a deliberately straightforward mode. I smiled, just recalling how just a few years had passed and he had definitely matured.
