"The Wall"

I just found myself feeling like I was back in highschool, flashbacks raced through my mind from highschool of the loud chatter I heard coming from the of the back of the senior lounge. The banter and laughter filled the air from the exclusive table from only which the "popular people" gathered known as "The Wall".  I never was privy to that table and sat which seemed like miles away with my "nice girlfriends," at a table made for four.

I often found myself making curious glances to that sacred spot, not envious in anyway, most of them I would probably think twice of saving from a burning building.  But, I often wondered if they thought everyone else gathered in the room was less than them.  I think they did.  Seeing the garnet and gold warrior symbol above the wall and feeling that I just wasn't good enough was my first hard lesson in the chain of hierarchy that I thought would banish after highschool.  How wrong I was......As a confident, out-spoken almost 40 year old I realize "The Wall" still exists.  I can still enter a large room, and know matter right or wrong certain people still hold the cards.  There is still the popular and unpopular and sadly this has little to do with character.

I remind myself daily in order to save my sanity, that all that really matters in life is who shares your table at the end of the day whether it be your spouse, children, parents, friend, or a person in need.  I always make it a point that everyone feels welcomed to join me at my table.

"If you were to discover that your closest friend was a heroin dealer, what would you do?"

Hello everyone! Happy Noreaster!  If you are smart enough to call into work today, you are probably sitting around in your cozy jammies looking outside your window at the beautiful, but annoying snow.

Every week I promised to post a thought provoking question from the book, "The Book of Questions."  I love these questions!!  They really make you go, "Uummmmm".......Plus, it gives me a reason to write! And,,,I love to write!  So here goes, and I really hope you post your response on my blog.  It is a lot of fun to see everyone's different point of view.  If you were to discover that your closest friend was a heroin dealer, what would you do?

What Do You Most Strive For In Your Life: Accomplishment, Security, Love, Power, Knowledge, or Something Else?

It's Totally Truthful, Tell It Like It Is Tuesday.  Today I am overwhelmed with laundry, and putting away the last of the Christmas decorations.  Someday, I will definitely be one of those old people who just wants to decorate with a small, fake ceramic Christmas tree.  Heck, I want to do it now, but with the new Charlie Brown tree's that I see in the stores. I think a tree like that is adorable.

~~So for today, while I go about my household chores I will reflect upon this question,
"What do I most strive for in life: accomplishment, security, love, power, excitement, knowledge, or something else?"

Let me know what your thoughts are!  I bet no two answers with be alike with this question.  Ummmm!
