Dear readers, Sixteen days into the new year. Question how is those RESOLUTIONS working for you?
Well, if you haven’t read my post the Bucket list versus Resolutions, I’ve come across a list of 20 Questions by author Martha Nibley Beck, an American sociologist, life coach, best-selling author, and speaker who specializes in helping individuals and groups achieve personal and professional goals.
Maybe its time to stop looking at that list of New Years Resolutions and have a serious conversation with yourself. Its Martha Beck’s theory that these 20 question will help you to find the answers to some of life’s dilemmas by asking the right questions.
What Say you?
More drama, when things go wrong, people say the Devil is busy. I say People are busy. We live in a world that lack compassion, love and plain old common sense. People are too busy minding their own business to notice the needs of others. Did you know that a smile, kind words, a hug or laughter could make a persons day, or change their life. So much cruelty, people are getting meaner and meaner. No time to listen to their fellow mans troubles, because people are concerned with being greedy and selfish. Most adults remind me of a two-year toddler. They go through life stomping their feet, with arms folded across their chest singing the ” Mine, Mine, Mine” and ” Me. Me. Me” song. What happened to the good old days when people cared?
What Say You?
I am back, did you enjoyed your Independence day celebration?….Speaking of Independence
Some people say, times have changed. I say, people have changed.
Flashback… to the days when wives stayed at home while husbands worked to support their families.
Moving forward to the birth of the women’s movement and feminist ideology causing women to leave their homes, and join the work force. However, women are still expected to come home and perform their domestic duties. Most of the women I spoke to about women working outside of the home, said they felt that ” society and their families are punishing them for wanting to be recognized for more them just a stay at home house wife.”
The punishment these women are referring to is the labels given to “women who want have it all. They are called Superwoman or Ms. Independent, High maintain, and because they have a job, they don’t need a man. Women in the work force are belittled and told that they are trying to compete with men. So, chivalry is dead, because women raised their voices and want to have a say, instead of being dictated to by a cultural belief that “a women’s place is in the home.”
Back to the matter of women who feel they are being punished for wanting to earn a pay check, obtain an education and explore their creative abilities. Husbands are demanding that their wives give of their earnings and contribute to the household expenses; as away of a wife ” doing her part.”
When referring to the financial situation in a relationship, I hear this phrase ” Whats mine is mine and whats hers is hers.” Gone are the days of what we earn is ours. Husbands are hiding money, wives have to conceal the fact that they have back account. This why I say, people have changed.
