“Decisions Decisions . . .”

Decisions decisionsGood day, All! And I’ll dare to say Happy Monday!

How were your weekends? I hope they went well for you. I don’t know about you but I had the pleasure of attending my first Breast Cancer Awareness Event on Saturday called “Save The Twinz”. For the past four years, this organization has been acknowledging the need for additional awareness of the illness that affects both men and women, but there have apparently been more cases of women faced with this challenge. Thanks to a wonderful organizer friend, Andrea Jean-Baptiste CEO and President of Axum Management, I was able to attend and enjoy it. I am presently gathering more information to attempt to put together an article for the event.

Is anyone concerned with how long these … um …. representatives in Congress will take to get the nation’s government up and running again? The report I heard is that each day of the shut down is costing the American taxpayer hundreds of millions of dollars …. I wonder where that’s coming from!? Are these representatives really as intelligent as they claim to be? Blocking the opportunity to take a vote to get the government back up and running has been the Tea Party’s latest contribution, if you will, to this century’s political developments. Does it seem that they are having a tough time making a decision? I think we all are faced each day, several times a day, with making life altering decisions …. peace be still!

This past weekend was a time of regrouping and relaxing, organizing and re-organizing elements in my humble life. Some of the decisions I am faced with are simple enough while others can effect my life for the next ten years or so, should I have that much time around here! How do you handle decision making? Do you wake up and say to yourself, “I’m going to have a wonderful day!”? Or are you less optimistic wondering how you may need to forge your day to take advantage of someone or something? I recall one morning not too long ago when a guy driving a big SUV was weaving in and out of traffic as we both approached a red light. Needless to say, since my vehicle is smaller and less powerful, I let him go ahead and simply changed lanes from the one he was in. I threw my hands up in amazement how someone could want to race to a red light at 8am in the morning! I wished him a nice day in an attempt to diffuse possible road rage, and he wished me a “shitty” life!! Do you think he has good “karma” …. a happy life maybe? I doubt it!!

Enjoy your Monday with simple hopes and dreams and take them one day at a time.
