-Gerard Manley Hopkins
I feel like I haven't been on here in forever, school is consuming most of my time, and I miss my husband and kids, so any free time I have I like to spend with them. This has brought me to my newest revelation, I don't have time for drama, for people who act like high schoolers, for people who ask for advice and don't take it, honestly, I barely have time to shower....haha not really, but you get the idea. Drama is consuming, even just within families, he said this, she said this, then words get twisted all around. Grow up people. I have realized that I can be involved without being involved in the drama, I can care, without caring about the drama. I am proud of the person I am, I am accomplishing a lot, going to school full time, I am caring for my family, and if you aren't due to poor choices of your own, i'm sorry, but that is not for me to deal with. If you want to enable people to be that way, again, not my problem. Its time for me to safe guard my heart. This year is about growth for me and my family, an upward change, not to be drug down by drama, and petty insecurities. It may feel for some as though i'm taking a backseat, but thats not the case, ill still be as involved as I ever was, but the negativity must be left at the door. I don't have time for it! No matter who you are, what your situation is, boundaries are important, with work, with family, with school, within your self. So set them, and if you have to build fences around them to keep them there. Consistency is key!
