I can’t believe it. I’m loving summer! Yup you read that right!
We have planned quite a few things and have been having so much fun! A few Pinecrest trips already and a Pinecrest movie, Mammoth Lakes with the family, already a few lake trips and days on the houseboat.
I had a procedure so I haven’t been able to work out the way I was which is a bummer but I’m going to come back strong. I haven’t written much since Barry passed away but we got a new puppy. Which means I am also running low on sleep! Before I had my procedure I was taking Bailee for hikes and walks and can’t wait to start that again!
Its going to be so nice on Mondays to drop Rylan off at school and take her for a morning hike before it gets too hot! Pretty excited and she’s doing so good! She still pulls on the leash but is way better and I feel like she’s starting mature a bit. She’s a big sister now!
Its such a bummer that Pat has had to work every day since March! He still manages to make time for us because he’s amazing. But I still feel bad doing things without him. We aren’t going to his family cabin at Bucks lake this year. It doesn’t seem fair to do things and go there without him.
Rylan is loving summer so much too. Which is good! I don’t want her to inherit my dislike for summer the way she’s adapted my dislike of babies!!!
Her baby cousin is the cutest thing ever and yet at 2 months old she still acts like he’s a little terrorist out to ruin her life. He can’t walk, talk, or take her toys and yet when he’s around she goes into a kind of panic mode! Screaming and crying when he cries and clinging to me wanting to be in a different room than him at all times.
It was funny the first time. Its been 2 months. Its not funny anymore!
They came swimming with us and she whined and cried for 2 hours because he was there. NOPE! I let her cry. she had her floaty on and would get in the water and be okay until she looked at him. ugh. Its not like its a sibling but I love them we will be spending a lot of time with them! She needs to get over it!
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
I was at the San Jose Unleash the Power Within Seminar. Thats right I was front and center for the Me Too fiasco. Well more like first level up, but I had a great view of the ridiculousness.
Thats right I called it ridiculousness. Anyone who claims that he was “bashing” the movement or anything of that nature truly wasn’t listening. INCLUDING the woman in the video who stood up and spoke. (Side note: whoever gave her a mic should be kicked in the nuts).
I WAS THERE. To anyone who wants to argue. I’ve seen the footage and they are leaving out key parts of the message to get their point across. Shocking right? No one ever does that in the news anymore.
I should have started this with some strong woman speech because I truly believe I am. I support other women whole heartedly and truly think that the #metoo movement is great thing. When its being used correctly. Which was exactly what he was saying.
“With great power comes great responsibility”. Right? But with great power and a great platform comes an element of risk. There’s a chance for someone to take advantage. If you sit there and tell me that EVERY SINGLE CLAIM in the Movement is sincere and just, than you are delusional. With any movement you have to know that there will be some people who will try and use it with their own motives. Sadly thats what happens when we have free will.
Its a sad truth that people would do this but you can’t deny that its happened. Yes its offensive to people who have truly gone through something horrible. To people who really have a reason to stand up and say this has happened to me too and it has to stop. That’s what takes away from it. Not Tony.
He didn’t mention his friend who was scared to hire a woman until after this lady stood up and started in on him. That was NEVER the original intent of the message. The message was that people have 6 human needs. We all do. One of them is to feel significant and these days there are so many ways to do that not all of them are good. We have to choose good ways to make ourselves feel significant, not by tearing other people down.
If we were all so incredibly honest there wouldn’t be a movement to begin with and there would be no war and we’d all be living in peace. I think we can all AT LEAST agree thats not happening.
Using the movement as a way to get your significance is happening. We all have to be careful with the stones we throw and that was his point. Thank you to whoever brought this out like this and made it seem like something it wasn’t because all you’ve done is make me agree with him more and prove the point that people do stupid shit to feel significant. To whoever did I’m sure you do feel significant… enjoy it cause it will only last about 10 minutes.
I stand by the fact that I had an amazing time at the seminar. I took nothing but positivity away from the whole thing and have since been trying to treat people better and am making radical changes to myself. It feels fantastic and I’m forever grateful for having gone to the seminar.
