Rest In Peace is Not Just for Dead People (& the New WOW)

Do you find yourself walking on eggshells to keep the peace?

Or maybe you’re more inclined to smash someone over the head with a frying pan?

We all have our own unique ways of dealing with internal and external turmoil. My methods change depending on the time of the month, the moon and tides, and whether I’m hungry or tired.

Should the target or source of the turmoil choose to foolishly point OUT that perhaps my demeanor is related to said time of the month, the tension rises exponentially.

Moving on from the “time of the month” to this time of the year…

In these highly charged political times, half of the country has promised to leave if one candidate wins.

The other half will leave if the OTHER wins.

My bet is that no one will really leave.  But the acrimony and the vitriol will likely continue because there will always be some people who think if they talk more and louder, they’ll change someone else’s mind.

I’ve observed that people rarely change their mind when they’re being yelled at.

When I was a teenager, being told I was wrong only made me dig my Candie pumps in deeper just to prove them wrong.


No one knows who I am voting for, and I plan on keeping it that way.  Not because I’m afraid of a good, spirited discourse – but because I love harmony.

I totally respect your opinion!  What I don’t like (or respect) is that so often opinions are offered in crass or insulting manners. On both sides!

As we end our week focusing on harmony, I loved finding this:

Rest in peace

Thus the offbeat subject line for today’s e-mail.  How sad to wait until we’re dead to rest in peace!

I know, sometimes life really is upsetting.  But maybe this week’s WOW will help:

Yes, construction zones are MESSY. But keeping the vision of the end goal in sight can fuel your engine.

Trusting that you’ll get there will help you get through.

My face will stop flaking, too.
