Whisperer

Saturday, May 26th, 2018

No ContactDo you know a whisperer? I had a conversation not too long ago with a friend who told me she doesn’t like to go into her dentist office even though she thinks the dentist is great because the receptionist staff whispers in the receptionist area.

I shrugged and said they probably need to keep quiet because of patient confidentiality.

She said no, she didn’t think that was it and said she’s observed that after a patient comes into the office to check in and then sits down in the waiting area the reception staff whispers among themselves about the patient.

I got to thinking about this and said you know maybe you should say something to the staff. And she said– she didn’t want to make a big deal out of it.

So here’s the thing:

Call it what you will but there are people who like to talk about other people period. There are some people who are not so subtle about it and do it no matter whether the person is with in earshot or not. They like it and they do it and that’s just the way it is. You can like it or not like it and it really doesn’t make any difference because they don’t care.

But here is the absolutely beautiful thing about gossip because when it comes right down to it when a person whispers–it is often gossip.

It doesn’t matter what anyone else says or doesn’t say.

It doesn’t matter who someone else is or isn’t being.

It doesn’t matter what anyone else does or doesn’t do.

The only thing that you or I or anyone else has any control over is ourselves. We have the amazing opportunity to take care of ourselves and what others do or say or who they are or aren’t has absolutely no bearing on us.

The worry about others is a wasted worry. Staying up at night or waking up at night worrying about what you think someone else is doing or saying or being is not in any way shape or form a matter that should hold you captive.

Others can whisper, shout, or scream and it has nothing to do with us.

Take charge, go out there and be you. You are the only person who can and it is your responsibility to do that. Others will either like it or they won’t and be glad that we all have the freedom to make that choice.

Nothing Doing

Monday, August 3rd, 2015

If you’re overwhelmed bewildered or too tired to do one more thing it may be time to do nothing.

Doing nothing is often the best course of action to take when you’re unsure about doing anything else.

When there is no clear plan of action, inaction may be the wisest alternative.

When other people are involved in the situation you’re struggling with it becomes even harder to know what action to take. The issue also becomes more sensitive when others are involved.

If you decide that doing anything is better than doing nothing you’ve got to feel that the action you take is reasonable.

The Next Step

Thursday, February 26th, 2015

The next step is usually taken after a great deal of thought has been given.

The next step follows appreciation for what has been learned from that which is about to be left behind.

The next step doesn’t usually happen while entrenched in frustration for the day to day happenings of the current status quo.

The next step requires processing a ton of feelings good, bad, crazy, nutty, funny, miserable, hysterical, etc.

When all is said done and considered the next step just seems to be the natural thing to do and the flow seems right.
