My Thoughts/Your Thoughts
This post really has nothing to do with writing, but it’s my blog and even though I don’t usually voice my opinions…
I have been doing a lot of thinking lately and I guess it started with Facebook. I have many friends with many different beliefs. Different religions, sexual preferences, etc. They post different things and if I agree with their views I’ll like the post but I don’t always share the post. Am I wrong? If I don’t share the post and put out that I support it, am I being a hypocrite? I’m the type of person that believes, live and let live. You respect my beliefs and I’ll respect yours. I just don’t see any reason to put my beliefs out there just so someone else can come along and argue with me that my beliefs are wrong. Maybe they are, but they are my beliefs.
Which brings me to two blog posts I read this past week and I just have to share my thoughts.
Gabrielle Reece did an interview with US magazine and she said “women should be submissive with their husbands”
Now I’m wondering; submissive how? Like “Fifty Shades of Gray” submissive or maybe only do what he likes to do, go where he likes to go.
Is she sending the wrong message? What happens if he’s abusive? She has a new book out and I haven’t read it so I’m not exactly sure what she means or how submissive a woman should be, but you can read the article here,
And you can find her book, “My Foot Is Too Big for the Glass Slipper” here,
My thoughts, I think marriage has to be a two-way street.
Okay on to the next topic.
This one has been all over the web. Some support it, others don’t and it boils down to just a matter of opinion and my thoughts of course 🙂
The mother who regrets having children.
I don’t condemn her for not wanting children. Not every person is cut out to be a mom or a dad. What I condemn her…No I don’t condemn her for anything, because it’s not my place to do that, but I do have some things to tell her.
One, don’t blame your children for ruining your life. Blame your husband for wanting kids. No that’s not right either. The only one to blame is yourself. You knew you didn’t want children and yet you compromised. We all have choices to make in this life and we must all live with our decisions and blaming your children, who didn’t ask to be brought into this world, is wrong.
As for free time for yourself…Seems to me you had a lot of that. What with your husband taking care of the kids when he was home and when you went on vacation. Not to mention that, kids do take naps when they are little and eventually they do go to school.
My thoughts, I think that she is still very bitter about her decision and that this is still eating away at her and maybe she should get some counseling. What do you think?
And last but not least. I need help. Ha ha, yes most people who know me will tell you, I definitely need some kind of help.
But that’s not the kind of help I need today. See the little scruffy dog in the featured picture? He showed up at my house on Friday. Alone, scared, hungry, and thirsty and me being a big softy, I have fed him. He’s afraid and won’t come any closer then a foot away from me. Not sure if he was abused and that’s why he is un-trusting or maybe just because he’s been on the streets and people tend to chase stray dogs away. See the other little dog in the picture? That’s my little Duggy, he was running the streets, in fact one of the busiest streets in my city, and the rental car company that I used to work for, had coaxed him into the office and had called the pound to come pick him up and I just happened to stop by and say hello and this little dog came out from behind the counter and jumped up on my lap…Well that was three years ago. I also have my Mitzy, whom I’ve had since 2003. I don’t need another dog fighting over who gets to sleep on my lap and yet…
I have been getting flak about encouraging it to hang around and that was not my intentions, but I can’t let an animal go hungry.
Do I gain it’s trust and then call the pound? Do I just quit feeding it and hope it goes away? So what do I do? What would you do?
Well that’s my thoughts and dilemmas for today. Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. Guess I should bake my oldest son a cake, since it is his birthday today 🙂
Hugs to all.
