I have stolen a few moments to sit and write these. My son’s birthday party is this afternoon and running around trying to get everything picked up, planned, and prepared was more time consuming than I thought it would be. I think the ages between 7 and 13 are the busiest parties or at least for my kids. After 13, they just want to hang out with friends after a small dinner out with the family. What am I thinking having 13 active kids in one place only to have them sugared up on top of the noise and action?
I have experienced this I don’t know how many times in my life. Where I work this is exercised a LOT by people that hold higher positions. Now I tell them, ‘Educate me. Don’t belittle me.’ Sometimes that works in the right situations. Other times, they learn that they are actually the one that needs to be educated.
I’m going to try and heed my own advice here trying to get out of this slump. No one else is going to do what I want to do and I need to stay positive with my attitude.
