To speak or not to speak

I have always been one to speak up and say what I felt whether it be in my personal life or in the workplace. Especially if it comes to someone talking down to you and telling you ‘you are to serious’, ‘you aren’t understanding’, ‘you need to listen’, ‘you are too literal’, ‘stop and be less personal about things because you aren’t getting it’. To be honest when people continually tell you these statements how are you not to take them personally and make you want to speak out and say, ‘are you calling me stupid? Am I just an idiot to you because that is how you are treating me.’

I am tired of people doing this. If directions aren’t clear and understandable how are others suppose to follow and don’t talk down to people as it makes people feel degraded and disrespected. It leads to hate and anger.

I speak my mind and speak up because others don’t and I don’t think that others should keep quiet. If more spoke out then it wouldn’t leave those of us that do speak up be labeled as ‘outspoken’, ‘overbearing’ etc…

So I ask 

To speak or not to speak. Would you?

Repurposed lights

Here is what I have repurposed. We go target clay shooting and what better way to repurpose the spent shells and old Christmas lights that to put the two together. 

I’ve even written an arrticle and posted it out on Yahoovoices when it was around, but that has since gone by the wayside. If anyone would like the directions I’m happy to post here.

Keep it Simple

Have you ever heard someone explain a process and felt like all they wanted to do is hear themselves talk? They talked and talked and talked and no matter what you tried to explain- a stripped down, simpler version, a clarification: nothing mattered. 

Keep It Simple Stupid (K.I.S.S.) best acronym in the world.

So many people just want to hear themselves and hear that they are right and think they are making a difference but really all everyone else does is tune them out. They have lost folks within the first five minutes because they can’t have a collaborative discussion. It is draining, tiring, and unproductive.

Just saying.
