Comments17/07/2016 #2 Brian McKenzie#1 Day 1 in Boot is always shell shock.... not nearly as fun as the day they put a 16 yo in charge of the company barracks. Good times - talk about attitude adjustments - not a lot of people like taking orders from a 16 year old. Nearly all of my family did time in the military - I was well aware of the games they played - it was really just 'Camp Happy' with as Col Jessup put it - faggety white uniforms. * Marine Corps PLDC was another game entirely - they kicked my ass.17/07/2016 #1 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhDI would entitle this: Hippy Child Abuse and a Good Grandpa Escape. Brutally honest, but I would expect nothing less from you. I'm sorry for the bad, and I see what you can do. There's so much more to you. Your brain is beautiful, something that re-wired itself to survive. I'll never call you a victim, for that does not reside. You are a Warrior, once upon a time...when children were supposed to be children, your Grandpa taught you about time. He gave you food, life, history, and sustenance. And for this, you thrive. Keep writing, my friend, as it is truly real life and we cannot be spared to look through the eyes of an adult whose body was only that of a child. Break forth, as you have always done, to conquer another quest that is before you in the military. How was your first day?

Life is all about challenges, it's how you handle them that matters most. I think it's important to welcome change and not be afraid of stepping outside your comfort zone because that is always where true growth begins. You've got to feel the fear and do it anyway, lol ;)12/07/2016 #45 Jean L. Serio, CPC, CMCThanks Amour, for sharing such a personal story. I admire you for your determination to move forward in a way you knew, in your heart, was best for your son. It's a truly inspirational story we can all learn from.. And as Aaron Skogen states in his comment "Experience, is indeed, life's best school."12/07/2016 #44 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhDFantastic mothering! YOU knew what to do because you realized this was your one son, and your one life with him growing up for a fraction of his impressionable life. And you gave him all that you could give, no regrets. Hat's off to you, Mother! Hat's off to you!11/07/2016 #41 Pascal DerrienThat's one hell of a story but I should not be surprised you did it for your son providing your first name :-)
One thing only I can relate too is people telling you not to do it those types are everywhere a long time ago before the mobile phone era I left Paris to cross the Canada over a two months with limited cash at age 19 the number of people who tried to persuade me to do otherwise was impressive, I would get kill I would run out of money I did not know the country they heard so and so etc... I left and I had a ball I slept on beaches, sordid hostels etc,, but a few years later I crossed Eastern Europe when the wall fell and cross the US too morale is I don't really care what people say and YOU DID RIGHT
PS: I travelled thru your country and Mozambique too but that will be for another time
- Producer23/06/2016I Love You- What Does it Mean?It amazes me how we use words very frequently without knowing exactly what they mean. Just ask for the definition of leadership and strategy and you shall be puzzled by the variations in definitions. I experienced this. I asked for the opposite...
Comments24/07/2016 #141 Deb LangeIt is wonderful to see a post on love in bebee. I wonder how little and how differently we engage with life when we are not in love with life itself, ourselves, others and nature. When in love our actions are more in the range of kindness, empathy, fun and joy. When in love and fear, compliance, tension arises, I can notice the difference and make adjustments that return a state of love and contentment to myself and a situation. However, if I have experienced a limited range of what is love in life, I may live in a state that is more akin to fear and control. Fear and control may manifest as control over self and others leading to more conflict and control. There is certainly much confusion about what is love and what is not in this world. I love my sons, I love my parents, I love my ex- husband, I love my friend, I love my work, I love Your work and your kindness @Ali Anani08/07/2016 #138 CityVP Manjit#137 Dear @Milos Djukic, we are still largely in the dark ages regardless of social media platform. It is important to think of what "I love you" means especially when our focus shifts to the mechanics and away from the organics. We are talking about technology platforms as marketing instruments when there is weird stuff happening with AI as this Huffington Post article addresses http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/12/19/her-film-robot-romance_n_4474493.html - When it come to love we are making the old new again. With technology it is simply the new being made old again - but there is renaissance up yonder in the hills of time, there is hope in the valley of change and this new tomorrow is within us.08/07/2016 #136 Anonymous#134 Oh, you really just made my day. :) We all have our own journeys, our own stories and difficulties, as well as our own discoveries, healing, wisdoms and Gifts to share when we overcome. One thing I learned on my path is this, the simplest and kindest of gestures and statements in this big ol world wide web of ours, can often have significance of profound proportions to people far greater than those who shared them may ever know. Like this one here. And that, that is always worth it. Thank you so very much @Deb Helfrich. Much Love to you!08/07/2016 #134 Deb Helfrich#61 So glad this returned to the feed so that could partake of the continued discussion. @Melissa Hefferman your question does interest me, as well. I think your experience can lead to a very likely scenario - all the entrapments on offer that our society reinforces as love are false icons. Love is a part of the energy of consciousness, inter-related and yet separate forces like heat and gravity. We come with it built in and we can lose touch with it via fear, mis-information, and what we think are insurmountable challenges. But if we can acknowledge our own breath, our own beating heart, we have found the source of human love. Thank you so much for sharing how far you had to bend and how successfully you managed to use the love you found to light the way for others. I applaud you!08/07/2016 #133 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD#132 @Ali Anani: I love this post of yours. Look at not only the writing, the prose, the analytics and outreaches...and what does one see? A bunch of Beez embracing it as if it was the last piece of pollen on earth! And how we all love you, too! Sometimes, there are no words; the actions speak for themselves. Look at how many you touch. You are a rich, rich man indeed. How profoundly loving is your heart.27/06/2016 #127 Anees Zaidi#126 Dear brother @Ali Anani yesterday night I was in attendance at a gathering but my mind was with your latest buzz 'The Seedless Love'. The first thing which came to my mind was 'invisible seeds'. I smiled once I opened your this buzz and at the top I found your words 'seeds that we don't see'. I will not elaborate further here. I will share my thoughts at 'The Seedless Love'.27/06/2016 #126 Ali Anani#125- @Lisa Gallagher- Doubting, mistrusting, holding things too close to chest result in blaming others. These feelings and resulting actions contaminate the water of love. People who fear exposing them forget they are plants the seeds of doubts. At the beginning these feelings are like tiny seeds of seedless grapes (we say seedless, but in reality there are seeds that we don't see). With time these seeds grow and spread and ruin love. I discussed this issue in my last buzz "The Seedless Love".27/06/2016 #125 Lisa GallagherI'm always contemplating those thoughts @Ali Anani. For example, someone who not just tells you they love you but does things like plant beautiful flowers for you, works hard to provide an income and more.. that is love. But, at what point can that love become the opposite? For example one person handles the finances and the other pays no attention to them yet 10 years down the road they want to to go over the finances with you and will find a way to blame you for all the mishaps (many things that happen which are unforeseeable) . You're suddenly blamed for everything and this person takes no part in the fact that they could have looked at the finances at any time. Maybe these are bumps people hit along the road in order to get to an even better place in their relationship once they finally deal with the issues that were kept secret per se. I often ponder why it is that there are certain topics within a relationship that a person may fear communicating because they know they will be the 'bad person,' the 'irresponsible person,' no matter what. Love is very complex.
