Role Playing....

Yesterday was a day for epiphanies,
I love and unlove those days,
Love them because they are tied to my growth,
Unlove them because they hurt like a twelve letter cuss word!
It reminded me of something Ms. Alberta Brown wrote in my yearbook when I graduated from high school…
Ms. Brown was the ultimate educator,
Tall, slim, light brown, verbose, pumps and pearls, take no prisoners,
Assistant Principal…
I dug her,
She wrote;
Learning begins in the cradle and ends at the grave…
For real,
And one thing I have had to learn and relearn is what my role is in the life of those I love,
I was my mother’s daughter,
My husband’s wife,
My children’s mother,
And recently I became a grandmother,
And the only role I have to love her,
Give her what little bit of me she is willing to accept,
And most importantly to remember that her parents are her parents,
Which means I am left with a great deal of time to do those things that feed my soul,
Go to my church for the word,
Hang out with my man,
Sit quietly in a corner,
Read a book or five,
I read five this week and am working fervently on six,
Write as many books as I want to,
About any subject I feel like,
And you know why,
Because when you play your role,
Know your place and accept your position,
It frees up a bunch of time to just,


Other folks thoughts of you are not your business…

You said a mouthful within a few short paragraphs. I know sometimes I can take on too much--when in reality--it's not my business to take it on. Lately my time has been limited (with MY business--personal and professional) so I've had no choice but to let folks handle their own business. I have people mad at me now because they feel I don't have the time for them anymore. Which if they looked at it, it's entirely true. I just no longer have time for handing out advice--that's not going to be taken or being a part of the drama they seem to have going on in their lives 24/7.

Whew...I guess I needed to get that off my chest. LOL
