Be A Little More Selfish

"Generation A" was taught to take care of others and be respectful towards society in general and totality. Negativity was used to punish them if they didn't cooperate but, they often did because it was "the right thing to do".  They were brought up to serve others and their needs first. "Generation B" (Generation A's... Continue Reading →

When Is It Time To Move On From A Once Trusted Service Provider

Recently, I've been stuck between a rock and a hard place.  I need to move onto another veterinarian, family doctor and possibly a specialist that I've been seeing for myself.  Sadly, though I have loved them up until more recently and have tried to talk things out with them, I am not getting answers that...

Veterinarians Are Human And Business People At The Same Time

First of all, I'm not trying to say that Veterinarians are bad people, don't care about your much beloved fur baby or are only out to take your money.  Like your family doctor or primary care physician or whatever healthcare provider you have for yourself, they care about your pet's health or they wouldn't be...

It's Mother's Day but, I have a lot of negative emotions as a mother.  It's not just today but rather, it's every day.  I haven't seen my only child in over a year and a half.  Unfortunately, neither have her friends nor the rest of her family on both sides as she chose to be... Continue Reading →

Do We, Nature Or God Have Control

Do we really have control over our lives?   That's a question that I've been wrestling with for a good portion of my life.  I still don't have definitive answers.  I'm not sure that anyone on this planet truly does.  No matter what the psychologists, psychiatrists, therapists, theologists and social workers tell us that we...

Don’t Let Other People Whine On Your Shoulder Constantly

Breathe. Breathe in through your nose deeply now, exhale through your mouth slowly. Feeling better? No? Do it again and keep doing it until you start to feel a bit more relaxed. MELLOW, mellow....mellow. Do you have people in your life who seem to keep talking about the same problems, over and over again but,... Continue Reading →

Follow Yourself Not Someone Else’s Footsteps

I've never been one to follow "The Crowd" in much of anything in my life.  I've always dared to take a different path and experience what lays along that road.  Oftentimes, it's led me somewhere that most others wouldn't find. In not following the crowd mentality, I have taken flack from those who have joined... Continue Reading →
