Food for Thought-Bon Appétit!

Archive 2013

Food for thought:

Everyone has had or has presently, someone in your life that makes you feel like, well, like a dog that has been beat too much. (metaphorically speaking)

Take heed! You cannot belittle someone on a regular basis and expect that their reaction will always be the same….no! They may grow tired of turning away and cowering and decide it is time to stand up and take a chunk of your ass with them! Bon appétit!


Archive 2017-I miss you Mom

(My Mom had a scarf obsession. Drawers filled with scarves. You never saw her without a scarf. She loved them. My obsession-shoes.)

Mom: Claudia is going to bring me a bunch of scarves.

Me: How many scarves do you need?

Mom: How many pairs of shoes do you need?

Checkmate….well played, well played.

Jazzy the Con Artist

See this fluffy girl? Cute huh? Turns out she is a con artist. She acts as if she is unable to go up two steps to get back into the house. She’s done this since we moved here. So naturally I have been picking her up and carrying her inside every damn time she goes outside. She stops at the steps and looks at me and expects me to pick her up now.

Enter my daughter-guess who can run right up those steps? Mmm hmm. She’s got her Mom’s number. She’s lucky she is so damn cute.

She acts crippled for me but she is an olympic athlete for my daughter. WTH?

The Upside of Anger

Feeling anger is not always a bad thing. If someone crosses your boundaries you should feel some anger. That’s okay. What’s not okay is to hold that anger in and let it eat away at you. What’s not okay is tolerating disrespect.

I’m not saying throat punch or crotch kick this individual. (Though lets me honest, we’ve all thought about it!) No, I’m talking about harnessing your anger and productively addressing this individual with the issue at hand. If you do not do this, you are setting yourself up to be a doormat. Address the issue. If it continues, then you know this individual does not respect you.

Let’s face it, most people will take advantage if given the opportunity. It’s sad but it’s the truth. There are bad people in this world and then there are people. Everyone has crossed someone’s boundaries at one time or another.

If you don’t address it, then the behavior cannot be corrected. Once addressed one of two things will happen. The other person will change their behavior or they won’t. If not, that puts the ball back in your court.
