Well-Meaning Liberal

I mean well. Seriously, I do. I just want everyone to be accorded with the proper amount of respect no matter what their race, religion, national origins, skin color, weight, age, and/or mental capacity.

Is that too much ask? 

Admittedly, there are times when I go overboard with this lovely concept and invariably end up alienating the people whom I am trying to protect. 

It never occurs to me that my well-meaning protection of these people is hurting them in the long run. I make excuses for their inability to get ahead in the world. I point out that their past history of being unfairly oppressed will always prevent them from ever enjoying the type of success that I take for granted.

I set the bar  low for these people and then over praise them for every little gain that they make. I am fostering delusion and entitlement within them but, I cannot seem to stop myself.

Writer's Nook Envy

I am in the process of creating a Writer's Nook for my townhouse. This task is so  Gen X/hipstery that I feel a little sheepish about even blogging about it. Yet, it must be mentioned because this simple task has turned into a huge undertaking.

My new townhouse has a spacious basement which upon first glance seemed like a great place to set up an office and a workshop. Setting up the work table and supplies went pretty smoothly.

However, the drafty basement has proved to be a not so great location for my writer's nook. Also, it is a windowless space which after awhile made me feel as though I was in some sort of lock down situation.

So, I moved my writer's nook upstairs and this space is definitely more conducive for working. Though, my makeshift printer tables pushed together a long with the dining room chair screams "first apartment out of college chic".

At age 41, I would like to move past that decor and into something a lot more sophisticated.

Alas, cash flo…

Lots Of Irons In My Fire...

The past few months have been hectic in a good way. Years of personal growth, soul searching, and planning have come to fruition. Though, everything is not completely in place yet. I am definitely moving in the right direction.

I know this because the obstacles which were firmly in my way before seem to be stepping aside for me. The Universe seems to have given its blessing to this more evolved path that I am walking. Of course, this is not to say that there will not be challenges along the way.

But, I have learned over the years how not to allow challenges to become permanent barriers. Challenges are meant to guide us in the right direction. Unfortunately,they can occur without prior warning and despite having a solid contingency plan in place. Been there. Done that.

It has only been within the past few years that I have truly learned to embrace the wisdom which can come from challenges and unforeseen delays. A few years ago, several challenges swept into my life and seemed to take …
