Decisions, decisions

I have recently been complimented.  Someone I know who holds a substantial bit of authority over me, complimented me by saying I have knowledge that far exceeds theirs in a different category.  Essentially- they said I know my stuff.  How awesome is that?

I was also granted insight into their world as to events and happenings, things others are not aware of.  A kingdom is being built and they will be assuming their rightful position at the throne.  This is all because of their hard work, dedication and interest as well as their passion for something they love.

Where do I fall in all of this? I have been invited to participate. They are hoping to learn, want me to share my knowledge and spread what I know to others... It is all for the good of those who are willing to learn.   Good news, right? Well that's where the hard part comes in.

I am still on the fence with this. It is all sorta in the final stages, but nothing is dead certain yet.  Even when it is- those in charge say go, p…

Bad Pixie? Yep, that's me!

I have recently found a website that is authored by a woman who is dealing with how her life has been changed following her husbands traumatic brain injury. In reading through her notations of his behavior, outbursts, threats, and several other issues she has come to deal with as they present themselves, I can't help but notice the profound number of similarities between her husband and someone I know very well.

The one major difference is the timing of the occurrance of the brain injury. Her husband behaves this way as a result of his brain injury. The person I know behaves the way they do and may recieve a brain injury (think frying pan to the head) as a result. Although I would never do it, believe me, some days it is mighty tempting...

A good friend of mine shared a bit of medical insight on all of this.

"Post concusion syndrome or low grade brain injuruies do have a profound impact on personality, and are very often missed when the injury involves no LOC or very short LO…

Uncharted Worlds

Most of us can easily say we know someone close to us, well enough that not much they do or say surprises us. We know what they like or don't, what their favorite color is or not. Sometimes we do, but sometimes we don't.

What happens then? When the person we think we know so well, comes out of left field with a bombshell that rocks our world... Did we even see it coming? Did we ignore the signs along the way of what was to come?

Sometimes we just miss all the marks of what makes people tick. We ignore what may be something significant to them, only to miss out on all of the additional things it brings with it. Whether we chose to ignore the obvious or just missed it along the way, we do not get to explore that part of their world and what it brings. Often times, you miss it once and the door is closed for good. Sometimes you may get a second chance, but often you don't.

We may not realize the depths of their thoughts, the strength in their convictions, their gift…

Friggatriskaidekaphobia

Fear of Friday the 13th. For some people this is their reality. Lucky for them there is only one Friday the 13th this year. Next year there will be more...

There are just about as many ideas or "reasons" behind Friday the 13th being "bad" as there are people putting thought into it. It is only by facing your fears, that you may get over them. Celebrate this day as you would any other. Embrace it and enjoy it.

Just don't walk under any ladders, watch out for black cats, don't break any mirrors, and don't spill the salt. Mkay?
