I believe it is important to take stock in how one acts. It is easy to continue on as you have always done, oblivious to how it impacts those around you. Some will even justify their actions with statements like “that’s just the way I am”.
For me, that is not good enough and I expect more of myself than that.
The wise person doesn’t continue on as they always have. The wise person evaluates their actions and changes when they realize they need to change.
I sat motionless for so long that even my constant companion, mind chatter, paused mid-sentence to conduct an investigation. We both held our breath and waited in anticipation for the answer to the riddle women everywhere (over centuries even!), even the most educated, seem unable to decipher. No matter how different we are, (age, race, faith, education, background) what forever binds us together is our hunger to know the secret. Why are we magnets for the wrong man, and why is it so hard to let go once we finally figure it out? What is about a man saying I love you, regardless of what his actions are telling us, that keeps us turning the other cheek.
After repeated negative experiences, I finally realized I didn’t have the answer because I wasn’t asking the right question. It was never about what was wrong with and how to fix him, it…

Uh, negative Ghost Rider! Last night I fell asleep before 9 pm and didn’t wake up until 7 am this morning! I rarely ever sleep this late, but it is Sunday and it seems my body needed the rest.

A couple times per week Evelina works at a small women’s boutique here in town. It’s a neat gig because she gets a discount on the clothes which she loves because they carry things she’ll never see anyone else wearing. Anyway, last night she went in to work the store for a couple hours and I get a phone call from her. One of the girls was attacked by a lady who was attempting to steal a couple dresses and was hit in the face and neck about 20 times.
The girl was taken to the hospital and checked out, then released. She has some bruising on her face but no cuts or permanent damage. The police stayed at the store for the remainder of the evening and eventually reported they caught the attacker.
I worked retail for over 7 years and I can tell you I saw everything. The first thing you learn working retail is people are crazy. It’s just a matter of time before you see the next level of craziness.
I’m glad this girl is okay, but it has me wondering if Evelina should continue. After all, is a discount really worth it?
