Movie Review of ” STUCK”…..

I do not even know why I rented this movie, I guess I figure it sounded ok. Well, it was different, that’s for sure. It shows us how someone in life may resort to things they never imagined just to survive. It shows how a girl who is trying hard at work to succeed, makes a fatal mistake and turns her life into an unnecessary whirlwind because she did not make the the RIGHT choice. It shows how a man, who is at one time in his life living “high on the hog” loses everything even faster than it took him to gain it! He is in the process of coming to terms with his new situation, when this girl runs him over. He is stuck in her windshield, bleeding all over, and she does NOTHING about it to help him. You’re not going to believe what she does. She drives him to her house and parks her damaged car, with him still attached to the windshield, in the garage! I will not tell you what happens. There is some weird stuff going on with the characters in this movie. If you like strange situations and you like seeing people at ” their best,” you want to see this movie. I just hope that it never happens to me!

A day in the life of…….

A very special friend, who is like a sister to me, has recently been told she has multiple sclerosis. She has been to so many doctors and has had so many tests, I admire her courage and strength. For a long time, she admits she was in denial. The sensation that her body is experiencing is only known to her. The pain and anguish she feels, she must endure. She has had to start giving herself injections everyday. She can no longer hide and pretend all is fine with her system. She has taken the responsibility of caring for herself, and she must deal both mentally and physically each day with whatever this disease may bring. She has educated herself to MS and has made the decision to fight and hope one day for a cure. Research in the area of MS has grown, so she feels one day soon she will have great news!

She has also come to understand that her friends and family are with her on this journey in life that she must now go through. She understands that she does not need to do it alone…others love her and are with her! I admire her strength. I admire her courage. I admire her sense of humor! I love my friend! I am not going anywhere. I will always be there for her! Friends to the end!

Footnote taken from Wikepedia……

There is no known cure for MS. Treatments attempt to return function after an attack, prevent new attacks, and prevent disability.[1] MS medications can have adverse effects or be poorly tolerated, and many patients pursue alternative treatments, despite the lack of supporting scientific study. The prognosis is difficult to predict, it depends on the subtype of the disease, the individual patient’s disease characteristics, the initial symptoms and the degree of disability the person experiences as time advances.[7] Life expectancy of patients is nearly the same as that of the unaffected population.[7]

BE A FRIEND TO SOMEONE YOU LOVE….FRIENDSHIP HOLDS AMAZING POWER…….

Believe in Yourself!

I am getting so tired of seeing the majority of society walking around all over the place like they are in auto-pilot. Do they realize that they are not even noticed? Do they realize that most people do not even care about what is going on with them? Do they understand that one day, maybe sooner than they suspect, their gig is up? Well, I do not believe so.
I believe a lot of people are just doing what they think they are expected to be doing. You’re a baby doing all the cool baby stuff, you become a toddler and start noticing that everyone is not going goo -goo all over you anymore, then you become a TEENAGER…lookout, and finally an adult. During all those phases in your life, you start to realize that the whole world does not focus solely on you. You begin to develop survival mechanisms that help you stay sane….if you are lucky! I believe, somewhere along the way, we lose our SENSE OF HUMOR and our INDIVIDUALITY.
So, I guess what I am getting at is….DO NOT LOSE YOURSELF.
Don’t be afraid to sing in public or start dancing, when you hear a song you love. Do not be afraid to state your opinion , it counts. Do not be afraid to speak up when you notice something that is not right. Do not be afraid to EXPRESS YOURSELF. I love to express myself through dance. I am not a great dancer, but I ain’t too bad!!! I just love being “different.”
I like to write down, every so often, what I like about myself and what I think I should try to improve on. ( Of course, I never have any in that column.) It helps me stay focused on handling everyday stuff in my life. It is just one of the things that works for me. Try it , if you want.

I Can’t Stand My Boss!

 

Well, get rid of em! Are they doing a good job as your boss? Are they making money for the company you work for? Are they just sitting around drinking coffee all day and pretending to be working? Are they actually good at what they do? Well, if you answered yes to these questions, you had better start looking for another job! Either that, or you need to sit down with your boss and come to some terms about issues you have with them! If your boss is not doing their job and not pulling their weight, keep in mind that they also have a boss ( unless they own the company) and you can talk to their superior. Make sure you try working it out with your boss first because their superior do not like when employees go behind their immediate supervisors back!  Just be sure to do something! Do not keep going into a job you do not like! This will lead to a lot of health problems for you! Everything has a solution. Figure it out. You can do it! Believe in Yourself! In the course of my employment, I have had several supervisors fired! If you do not do the job, you should not be there, right? I did nothing wrong, they did!

Mental Health and Laughter….

I would have been committed several times already to a psych ward if it weren’t for my sense of humor! I encounter stupidity all day long and have to really resist the urge in just ” letting it go!” All of us have hopefully set up some coping skills to help us get past the ” craziness” of this planet! Good mental health involves courage, determination, and will power! It involves saying to yourself, ” I believe in myself and what I can do. I will survive! I will succeed!” It is also my strong opinion that you need to see the humor in the situation you’re in. That is why I just take a step back before I respond. I stop and think about something funny, smile, and then ATTACK nicely! It can be done! You can make a point just as strongly being nice about it! Try it out and let me know if it works for you!
