Changes in Relationships

To me, it is never easy to say good-bye to a friendship. I can go back and forth and on and on many times before a decision is made. I can even know a relationship is destructive for me and somehow I will rationalize how "Maybe I can make it work" or "Maybe I'm the one tripping". The real answer though is than sometimes something is just over. There may be no reason for it other than the situation has gone the distance or the season is over.

Whatever the case, the change is a little tough and a little sad. The good news though is that with time and openness to new relationships we can see the change for what it is and that is a way to continue to grow.

The Wall Street Journal

Until now, I have been very quiet about the News Corp. purchase of the Wall Street Journal. Well, I did vent to my friends and family about the potential purchase. I believe I remained somewhat quiet because I never thought that the deal would go through. Never in a million years did I think this would happen. I was confident that that Board Members were able to stay away from such a deal. News Corp. is a successful company and Rupert Murdoch is a smart businessman but the two just don't go together.

The New York Post and the Wall Street Journal a part of the same family is such an interesting combination. It's a little like oil and water.

Well, with the deal being close to being finish there is nothing more left to say. Maybe it will work like some mismatched step-families seem to work. I guess we will have to all wait and see.

Sometimes for what seems like no apparent reason at all, my mind is a little unclear. I sit and think, what could be bothering me but nothing comes to mind. Is it possible that there is nothing wrong and that just maybe it might be there season for being unclear? Just like we have winter, maybe that it is just the way things are supposed to be at that specific time.

So, perhaps I should just weather the uncertainty and try to relax and enjoy life. We keep hearing that life is short so why waste time trying to figure everything out when things usually have a way of working themselves out anyway. There are even times when things work out much better than one would think. I like when those instances occur.

Well, I guess being uncertain is not such a bad thing after all.

Waiting is Never Easy

One of the hardest things to do in life is wait. When you're a kid, you can't wait to be an adult. when you become an adult, you can wait to find that perfect job, or that perfect mate. Why is it that we just can't enjoy the moment we are in.

I am learning that if there is one thing we can give our kids, that would patience and the capacity to know how to enjoy a moment as it is and just allow tomorrow to take care of itself.
