Peripheral Project(s) Due-ing Justice

appreciation humility Joan Winifred never giving up! patience

Never tried to undervalue or underappreciate or turn a blind eye…(to) the peripheral (vision, the outer spots, etc)… or the unintended peripheral (project(s), etc.)…(though, peripherals can de a danger (ous) distraction,

Hoping
And praying

[…] not a waste of my time, efforts, etc.???

Let’s hope–Your/(my) pride is not inoperable/inordinate.

Cause pride negates/is deadly!!!…makes ANY skill(s) ANY s0-called demo of central compassion…non-functioning/fatal.

Me, my self(-restraint), and You

attitude Breathing-Fragile-Life Joan Winifred patience

Patience helps keep one/us/fellow-fragile-life restrained (or in self-control along with maintaining a positive outlook/attitude) under… say (extreme) pressure, stress, distress, duress, injustice, persecution, provocation…situations/conditions/circumstances beyond our direct/indirect/immediate, etc. control.

Patience helps me keep myself restrained i.e. so as NOT to take my own (imperfect) sense of justice out on You/fellow-fragile-life…patience helps me treat all Others the way I would like to be treated… aka forgiven (and with respect).

(Some of us-fragile-life choose to practice revenge/retaliation/getting so-called even in both big ways and little ways. I don’t agree with this type of counter-productive behavior…it doesn’t improve things. Another hurtful act or word doesn’t contribute to healing/peace.)

(Though, it is difficult when hurting to not self-focus and remain calm and open-minded to the big picture of compassion.)

My patience and compassion have been tested a lot the past few weeks… between illnesses, hurricanes, people passing…including RIP T.N. on Friday this week:(

Obviously, patience is a positive quality… a healthy spiritual trait and may be an underutilized coping strategy…encompassing forgiveness and compassion and endurance when things get tough.

Patience also involves waiting… and don’t like to keep anybody waiting nor do I like waiting for looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggg!!!

Tomorrow…

Another opportunity

for patience

(and compassion)

Thank You Reader:) for patiently reading this post.

Prepare and Don’t Panic!

Breathing-Fragile-Life caregiving compassion conscientious-ness insights Joan Winifred never giving up! parenting patience peace power reality respect stress management wisdom

My thoughts and prayers are with those dealing with/experiencing Category 5 Hurricane Irma at the moment of this writing! And, of course, with all Others in the potential “perhaps” zone of catastrophic path of the unknown impact! And with All those dealing with a disaster of one name/sort or another in one place or another!

My Brother and Sister-in-law are in Haiti…my immediate Family and Friends are here close to my vicinity in FL. I think this whole state is a flood zone. We happen to live in flat land…our place of literal/bodily dwelling doesn’t flood…usually, but surrounding us does…go figure?….of course, with potential of spillage or depending on rainfall, etc. that could change fast.

During rainy season, i live in crocs. {i haven’t gotten around to getting rubber boats -ha, i meant to type boots:)…it’s hot to wear boots in high 80’s/90’s, but i think, it’s “probably” time. The super big puddles/rivers and washed out streets…picking kids up from school has had me considering a boots investment for a while now. Rubber boots may be sold out ? IDK and rainy season is almost finished…Hurricane season ends in November.} Boots haven’t been a necessity…for me (till now? in the “perhaps” zone)

My kids are prepping their to-go bags/carry-ons as i type on this laptop…and my 12 year old just announced -lol that IF we leave, (cause of flooding), she is NOT taking her homework binder!!;) This is ironic coming from a kid who always does her homework no matter what and is thoughtful, super-responsible with follow-through! She’s also singing “it’s the end of the world as we know it–AND I FEEL FINE!!” (School officials will inform Wednesday at noon about school cancellations, etc.) My 14 year old is considering what artwork to bring…and to wrap in plastic. And of course, the cats are their priority! i am chuckling cause now–the kids are asking/aka testing me about a particular privilege–i feel they are not old enough for yet…and under usual conditions the answer would be NO! …smartie pants, my answer is still NO!…:) My 12 year old is now stating IF You love me, you will answer this question…and i quickly piped up Yes! (meaning: of course i love you and i’m listening while my head is down typing), and so–now she laughingly informs me: I have to buy her a rat cause i said ‘Yes’…(what she really means is gerbil; that’s what she calls a gerbil and all in rodent family and she knows my yes means yes and my no, no. Plus she knows, i don’t care much for rats!), but she loves all animals in any family type and would be perfectly fine with a real rat (from the pet store). (Not me though, i do not want rats for pets from a store or anywhere, thank you; still working on fully appreciating this fellow-fragile-life/creature; obviously.)

Now the kids are goofing around making up…& singing country songs…”Two tear drops floating down the river…” and talking/chattering non-stop; wonder where/who they get that from?! 😉

This is suppose to be a serious post about preparation(s) and a kid is now tickling my nose/trying to stick a piece of twirled plastic up my nose so, i’ll sneeze…while my eyes are distracted on this screen.  STOP IT! Cut it out! She is relentlessly aggravating me for a laugh…we are having fun and laughing/playing and not panicking while prepping for a potentially very-serious-weather-life-altering-event.

My son quietly informs that: IF our house gets wrecked, his only regret is not painting his room…blue.

okay back to business…little girls have left room..i better type fast to finish this before the unrelenting interruptions start up again…i LOVE my kids!…and especially love their creative teaching techniques…teaching me patience, and other qualities (like staying calm in emergencies and listening completely before replying) i need to work on–or things i need to change…lol;)…especially my snarky sarcasm that surfaces from time-to-time.

“PREPARATION is Your MOST IMPORTANT KEY TO SURVIVAL!” – Awake! No. 5 “When Disaster Strikes–Steps That Can Save Lives”….

No one is immune to disaster. But what does preparation involve?

  • Prepare mentally. Acknowledge the fact that disasters happen and that you and your loved ones are potentially at risk. It is too late to prepare after disaster strikes.

  • Learn about disasters that can happen in your area. Know where shelters are. Consider whether the construction of your home and its location are as safe as possible. Remove fire hazards. Install smoke detectors, and change their batteries at least once a year, if not more often.

  • Prepare emergency supplies. Power, water, phone, and transportation services can fail. If you own a car, try to keep the fuel tank at least half full, and always have food, water, and an emergency kit in your home.​

  • Have access to the phone numbers of friends, both near and far.

  • Make and rehearse an escape plan. Know the nearest exits in your building, as well as the emergency plan of your children’s school. Set up family meeting places​—such as a school or a library—​one nearby and another outside your neighborhood. Authorities recommend that you practice walking with your family to those meeting points.

  • Plan to help others, including the elderly and the infirm.

i’ve been living in the “perhaps” zone concerning various life things/circumstances, etc…for a while now…this training has prepped/disciplined/taught my mind and heart to be prepared..for whatever occurs….{at least, i think/hope anyway.}

Reader:)…are You prepared? Physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually?? (for disaster or whatever?)

Don’t Panic! BE PREPARED! BE SAFE and ACCURATELY INFORMED!:)

PEACE!:)
