The Irony of Flag Burning

They don’t even realize that their actions prove them wrong

Published

When people burn the American flag, they are trying to send a message about how terrible America is and how oppressive it is. The ultimate irony is that that isn’t the actual message that comes through when they burn the American flag. Chris Widener, founder of PolitiCrossing, tells us in his latest video about the irony of flag burning. Watch the video below.

WINNING YOUR BATTLES…..

So many people have battles they face daily.. Battles happen on many fronts. Physical, Emotional, Mental and YES, Spiritual.  Battles and enemies come in many forms: abuse, addictions, anger, anxiety, depression, fear, shame, ptsd, traumas, insecurities, disease and illnesses etc..etc..

How do we overcome these battles? Do we give in to them and be left defeated?

ARE YOU A FIGHTER?

No, we FIGHT! How do we fight?

We seek allies, we get help, we learn to understand our enemy and how to defeat them! We suit up with armor and weapons that will enable and empower us to win!

Mentally, we dig deep and draw strength from within and we do all we that we can do to STAND and conquer the enemy that wishes victory over us!

I don’t know what type of battles you’re facing, but don’t think for one minute that you’re alone.. You’re Not… We all have ’em and we can choose to fight and WIN!

But, It’s up to you isn’t it? YOU KNOW?

Sometimes the only thing that’s stopping you is YOU!”

Don’t accept defeat! Be encouraged, dust yourself off and take a stand today…

BE A FIGHTER!

Remember With God nothing is impossible. Be a Fighter and Win Your Battles Today! Being a fighter isn’t easy that’s for sure. But, we are stronger than we think when we look back over the other side and realize all we have accomplished! Mindset is Everything!

Please feel free to reach out for more guidance, added content, books, resources I have used on my journey or to ask questions. I’ll be glad to respond to help in anyway I’m able.

Just a side-note, I do not think I’m a boxer, I love to duke it out with the bag and take care of frustration from time to time! It’s a healthy habit! You should try it!

Your To-Do List: Unforeseen Events Will Arise

No matter how well we organize our lists and how productive we are in handling tasks, unexpected obligations and interruptions arise that could throw us off our plan.

Published

Each day you compose your to-do list and begin proceeding merrily down it, do you take into account what is likely to occur in the course of a day? No matter how well we organize our lists and how productive we are in handling the tasks, invariably, unexpected obligations, interruptions, and other developments arise that are going to throw us off our plan.

How do you react when you are humming along and, suddenly, you get an assignment from out of left field? Perhaps your boss has asked you to jump on something immediately. Maybe a client calls. Maybe something gets returned to you that you felt was complete.

If you are like most professionals, you immediately will become flustered. The intrusion on your time and your progress means that you are not going to accomplish all that you set out to before the end of the day. Is there a way to proceed and still feel good about all that you accomplish?

A Supplemental To-do List

I believe there is, and it involves making a miniature, supplemental to-do list that accurately and completely encapsulates the new task you now need to handle.

Why create this supplemental to-do list? It gives you focus and direction, reduces anxiety, and increases the probability that you will remain buoyant at the time of its completion and be able to turn back to what you were doing before the task was assigned.

If you don’t compose such a list, and simply plow headlong into the unexpected challenge that has come your way, you might not proceed effectively, and you might never get back to the to-do list on which you were working.

Unforeseen tasks that arise represent more than intrusions on our time; they represent intrusions on our mental and emotional state of being. Some people are naturally good at handling unexpected situations and often work as public servants, such as police officers and firefighters, or in health care, as nurses and orderlies.

Most of us, however, are not wired like this. Interruptions and intrusions take us off the path that we wanted to follow, and tend to be at least momentarily upsetting. Hereafter, when executing the items on your to-do list, proceed with the mindset that there will be an interruption of some sort. You don’t know when it is coming or how large it will be, but it will pull you off course.

Equanimity Reigns

The key question for you is: Can you develop the capacity to maintain balance and equanimity in the face of such disruptions? The good news is that you can, and it all starts with acknowledging that the situation is likely to happen, devising a supplemental checklist to handle the new task, and as deftly as possible, returning to what you were doing.
