I must say, that I refuse to take my “rose colored glasses” off. Why? I can see pain and anguish everywhere. I am capable of reading and understanding all that's going on in the world today. However, my eye is always on a solution. And if there is no solution, then proper perspective is needed as well as a call to action.
Did you know that there is over $108 BILLION in unpaid child support in America alone? CNN reported this in 2012, and the number has only grown since then. Where is our sense of common decency? When is it that we begin to help those who really need help? When do the children and their precious futures take precedents over greed, bureaucracy, and just plain irresponsibility?
The answer is today. We all have the power to make a difference within the platform we are given. Instead of turning a blind eye, or judging anyone, why not donate time, resources, and money? I lived my childhood life largely unaware of the challenges so many parents face. I live my adult life acutely aware of every challenge that every parent faces. I’ve chosen transparency as a way to stand up and face these challenges head on. I am not afraid, nor will I leave any child without a voice.
We tweet, Facebook, Instagram and comment on everything we see on the internet. How many of us shut down our devices and go out in the world and HELP? I can say that I do. I’ve helped over 1000 women and children in the past four months and wouldn’t change a thing. I will continue to do so in every way possible. I turned the corner, healing has begun, and life … a great life is in session. To move forward…GIVE BACK!
Sadly, I’ve learned that many women are part of the problem. Instead of standing together, they distance themselves and judge things based on their need to feel better about themselves. I send them love. I pray that social consciousness outweighs our need for validation and that TOGETHER we can all made a difference.
JUDGEMENT. There is value to this word. Collectively, we have defiled this word and misused it. Here is the definition:
1. The ability to make considered decisions or come to sensible conclusions.“ an error
of judgment”synonyms:discernment, acumen, shrewdness, astuteness, sense,common sense,
perception, perspicacity, percipience,acuity, discrimination, reckoning, wisdom, wit, judiciousness,
prudence, canniness, sharpness, sharp-wittedness, powers of reasoning, reason, logic; More
- an opinion or conclusion.“they make subjective judgments about children’s skills”synonyms:assessment, evaluation, appraisal; More
- A decision of a court or judge.“the Supreme Court upheld the judgment of the Alberta Court of Appeal”synonyms:verdict, decision, adjudication, ruling, pronouncement,decree, finding; sentence“a court judgment”
“The ability to make considered decisions or come to SENSIBLE conclusions”. We need judgement. We need to exercise GOOD judgement and we need to start being more sensible. We cannot put ourselves above or below others. Just read the situation for what it is, and make an informed decision. One based in social consciousness. Women, stand with your sisters, build them up and help them be strong. If one were to put a camera or a microscope on any one individual for 24 hours, we would see all the beauty and perfect human imperfections that we all have. Why not, focus on positivity and raise our children with social consciousness and a wide view of the world? This breeds compassion. We lack compassion and empathy. For WE (meaning the human race) are the only ones that can make this world a better place for our children, Stand up! Be heard! Be part of the solution! Today…step out of your comfort zone and change something for the better! Every act of kindness helps. It takes a village to raise a child. It takes sensible judgment to do it properly. Love More!
