    @Donna-Luisa Eversley I must say that you have taken a bold step to express yourself. Good wishes to you.

    All i say is parents are glowing lanterns in our lives. Under their tutelage, we receive guidance, way, counsel, suggestions, light, answers, solutions, grace, warmth, encouragement, motivation, love, care, shelter...Aha...in whatever manner we've grown up, become too qualified with many degrees and years of experience, but in front of our old, ageing parents, we are still their children, and we still require their best advice that comes with their blessings. Hope one day, your daughter will realize this. :)

    I think boy or girl they all drift away from the mother ship at some point it is part of the path to growing up with a lot things that I think us parents don't like very much.... we do what we can as parents not always what we want there are days we cope better and some not so much. Personally mine don't realise it yet but they live in a cocoon to a certain extent and if I can spare them the sh*t I went thru at their age I think I would have done a good job... they will realize it later and gratitude may land at that point or maybe not.... :-)

    My son is the biggest part of my world. I use behavioral psychology with hin in the nick name I gave him as an infant.

    The Dude.

    At age 4 when he would act up and out I started talking to him and telling him what it means to be The Dude.

    Be a friend

    Say please and thank you.

    Be honest even if it gets in trouble.

    And other behaviors we can all agree are helpful in getting along with other people and being respectful and courteous.

    I never have to punish him, we have a 2 minute convo that has him readjusted and understanding shit happens and we all have moments where we act up or out because we are all human. It gives him and identity to grow within and still be an individual.

    A few months ago wild geese let The Dude pet them and pick up and hold their young.

    It takes patience to not react to him acting out or up and remembering myself that all it takes is a simple conversation to remind us both of the behaviors we both should use to be a better example of decent human beings.

    I probably fail more than he does, however he is a constant reminder as to why I work at it to not be a hypocrite in his eyes and it is the hypocrisy our children see that does more harm than anything else we do.

    Dear Donna-Luisa, I just wanted to send you my thoughts and hugs! My daughter is my heart and, as you say, they are bound to resemble the good and bad traits we had growing up. My daughter is an only child and it took all I had to get through those teenage years into the tender years you currently describe.

    What I learned is that you and only you are the best person in your daughter's life to show her what a strong, loving and independent thinking woman looks like and what she can achieve. With your unwavering love and devotion, your daughter has the absolute best advantage she needs to grow in character and prosper in life.

    Ahhh, dear @Donna-Luisa Eversley, as a Mother of 2 daughters who are now in their 20's, let me say simply: I can relate! Both my girls were 'high-risk' teens and as a single Mom, it was almost the death of me! As Mothers, we have this immense, deep love for our children - we all want what's best for them. We have these visions of what that looks like. What I've learned is that 'vision' does not always align to our children's personalities. Not only do they have to learn to accept our imperfections but we must to learn to accept theirs! It took me a long time to let go of my vision. I no longer try to 'direct'. Now, I listen a lot more and give them support for their courage in 'coming into their own'. I am so happy to tell you that my relationship with my daughters is so much better now. I appreciate your honest sharing - us Moms must stick together!!! โค๏ธ

    What an insightful heartfelt post. I have two teenagers and can sympathise I am always looking for advice from other Mother's. After my children lost there father the hardest thing in the world to face was when my son came to me and said: "Mom, I was going to take the easy way out. I decided to stay, because I knew if I killed myself you probably wouldn't be strong enough to take care of my sister." Those words choked me in a way I could never express deeply enough.

    What a great buzz from the heart and so honest @Donna-Luisa Eversley! You wrote, "I'm not sure if I can ever be the mother she wishes for, but I am the mom she has." I used to feel the same, is your daughter a teen now? I thought my daughter would alway find fault with me because I had tight rules and I wasn't a conformist. Many of her friends were allowed to do whatever they wanted and lacked rules. So, I think many of us that do enforce our rules are seen as the witches or the enemy by our girls in particular. My son never challenged me and his personality differed. I can attest that my daughter and I are best friends today. She actually talks about some of her own past behavior and tells me she fully understands why I made the rules I did and should have been stricter with her haha. Can we say, things I never knew about?? I don't want to know now either! I think things will work out in the end, it just takes time and reassurance that you're doing the best you know how out of love! When it comes from a place of love, that's all that matters.

    Ah, those, on or about, teenage years when we thought we were invincible and we had to be cool. Our own pressures and our peer pressures can cause a lot of confusion. If we don't understand the confusion, then we place the blame elsewhere. So, mom - tag you're it. I feel certain it's a phase that will pass and your daughter will come around. Immaturity can wear many faces and only time will determine when the next step is taken. We are all a work in progress and remembering your other post, we will never be complete. https://donnaluisawordslayer.wordpress.com/2016/12/01/just-thinking-out-loud-life-with-me-is-a-limited-time-edition/

    An old neighbor of mine passed away this morning from an overdose. We tried everything to help him. He stole copper pipes, a child's bike and who knows what else... One time he was almost shot by officers... We were at a loss as to how to help him. He had no one. We all feel worse because we didn't know how to help him. He was a talented musician and song writer. Just too sad and it's an awful feeling to have to sit by and watch someone self destruct.

    Asset Inflation Equals Bogus Growth !

    My home is probably the oldest house in my village, incorporating stone almost certainly nicked from shortly after the dissolution of nearby Sawley Abbey likewise the beams are said to be scrap timber from the Spanish Armada.

    It will suffice to say that ownership came into my mums side of the family in the 1950s and after selling some of the land to build a petrol station stood them at ยฃ500, it was modernised and we rented it to a woman who worked in our shop for the princely sum of ยฃ1pw. The rent remained the same up to 1985 when we gave notice to her son and we had it โ€ modernised โ€ to move into when my mum retired and we sold the shop, uncovering the beams and fireplace with beehive oven. The original sandstone slates were replaced with second hand Denorwig Welsh Slate, central heating, new kitchen plus upstairs loo cost around ยฃ30k, not decorated since.

    We did get UPVC doors and windows fitted in 1995 just after my mum died and previous to that a burst pipe under the floor produced plenty of hassle requiring a good bodge with a new plastic pipe from the front garden into the kitchen. Apart from that hardly spent a penny on it, a few minor DIY repairs but we did get a new modern boiler to save on the mega gas bills, circuit breaker for the electrics new shower unit.

    It would appear that the construction contractors have omitted to paint the essential steel structure-work, and its dark rust indicating perhaps reject inferior quality steel. Furthermore, even if Green NGOs don't take LCC to court to forbid the contractors from shot-blasting the accessible surfaces its likely to rot from the inside.

I bought him some roast chicken thighs for his dinner at Morrisons Skipton on the way back as usual, but we fell out on the A65 when I refused to attempt to pass a slow loaded tanker. Even though he knew better, he said I was useless at driving, he was only an expert on PS2 Rally, and even then he beat his record after I designed his car for him. https://www.bebee.com/producer/@gordon-pye/bettison-the-sowerby-bridge-disaster-cover-up

I am joining you in pursuing this issue.

    #85 #86 Thank you @Ali Anani for alerting me to @Franci Eugenia Hoffman's insightful comment. I feel like the equation is branching off into one of your tree diagrams Dr. Ali. Franci, you're introducing an important aspect of the movement or action in that its not necessarily linear or consistent. And the chemical example you give Dr. Ali is very important to better understand the process that takes place. What this leads me to think about is the x factor, so to speak, in the human equation that influences the direction and duration of the action. This factor is probably related to motivation and motivation can be further reduced to meaning. Much to process and think about. Very exciting. Thanks to you both for including me.
    Ali Anani
    23/11/2016 #86 Ali Anani
    #85 This is a great example of evolvement @Franci Eugenia Hoffman. So, there this the drive to take action and the drive to maintain it. In chemistry, reactants produce the products, but then the products regenerate to the reactants. The equilibrium constant is what tells us how far the forward reaction goes. By the same token, we need to increase the equilibrium constant between what we get and the tendency to revert to type. A great observation , indeed.
    I tag @Sara Jacobovici to this important comment.

    #80 Absolutely procrastinating, Ali. And there could more than one reason why, which the main reason is most likely fear. Fear of failure, fear of weight gain, fear of change in persona, fear of nervousness, which all can be related to quitting smoking. I agree with the modification of the equation.

    I believe there is a third part of the equation, which I will leave the pondering to Ali and Sara. The equation KNowing X Doing = Movement or Action should include maintaining. I knew I had to quit smoking (knowing) X I quit smoking (doing) = Movement or Action (quitting) but I started back smoking so I didn't maintain my movement or action. I quit smoking 3 times before the final. I was not a heavy smoker, it's the motion that I was addicted to. I still use e-cigs and with no nicotine.

    So, the point I am trying to make is once you move or take action, you have to stick to it or maintain it.

    #79 Your point @Ali Anani is a very valuable observation. You are making me think of how to clarify my point. Maybe I don't understand the concept of zero well. For me, there is something that occurs from just knowing, but that is not necessarily an action and there is action without necessarily having knowledge. In this way, there is still something there; a form of knowing separate from action and a form of action separate from knowing. Sorry for not being clear.

    23/11/2016 #80 Ali Anani
    #71 In addition to my two previous comments I find the equation of @Sara Jacobovici with the inspiration from @Franci Eugenia Hoffman offers a new definition of procrastination. It is knowing, but not doing. For example, if some knows smoking is harmful and this person still smokes then s/h is procrastinating. What do you think?
    Ali Anani

    #71 One more point @Sara Jacobovici. You wrote "KNOWING + DOING = ACTION/MOVEMENT. If we just know, that doesn't always lead to doing". This means that the equation needs some modification so that if either knowing or doing is zero that outcome should be zero as well.
    So, I suggest KNowing X Doing = Movement or Action. This way if one is zero the result is zero as well.

    #71 #71 Thanks dears @Sara Jacobovici and @Franci Eugenia Hoffman for the inspiration. I just want to ask Sara if she meant Knowing + Doing = Action (or movent) and not action/movement (division)> As simple this equation is; equally it is practical. However; I guess it is not divided by as Action/Movement may suggest. Thank you @Sara Jacobovici for your clarification.

    As I've mentioned in other pieces, Mohammed, what the Republicans intend to do now is dismantle anything created by Obama and push their own agenda. With three houses under Republican rule, that should be easy, and we saw how they started, a day after the election, pressing to get the XL Keystone pipeline passed. Trump believes climate warming is a "hoax." He'll push for more oil, desecrating Native lands and building stockpiles he can use in negotiations with other countries (essentially, we don't need your sticking oil, we've got plenty of our own). The Republicans will dismantle the EPA and anything else that stands in the way of what they consider progress. It'll send stock averages up for a while, but citizen discontent is only just starting. Wait for the shit storm.

    Simple Words have the power to heal or to destroy...

    As societies grow decadent, the language grows decadent, too. Words are used to disguise, not to illuminate, action: you liberate a city by destroying it. Words are to confuse, so that at election time people will solemnly vote against their own interests.
    -Gore Vidal

    Of all the weapons of destruction that man could invent, the most terrible-and the most powerful-was the word. Daggers and spears left traces of blood; arrows could be seen at a distance. Poisons were detected in the end and avoided. But the word managed to destroy without leaving clues.
    -Paulo Coelho

    Whatever words we utter should be chosen with care for people will hear them and be influenced by them for good or ill.

    Words are singularly the most powerful force available to humanity. We can choose to use this force constructively with words of encouragement, or destructively using words of despair. Words have energy and power with the ability to help, to heal, to hinder, to hurt, to harm, to humiliate and to humble.

    Part 2:
    You have lived many years within that world of politics David and may be a bit hardened to the impact it has on the emotions of the people. With all the psychological studies done on the impact of stress, anger, and fear on the human psyche, why is it that it is only used to manipulate the voting public and not used to understand the ramifications of what it does to the people.

    I stand by my belief that he does not deserve to be the leader of this country, does not deserve the benefit of the doubt, and he may have set in motion events that America will pay for with the blood of its citizens and our military, and for what? I would really like to know his motivation for running in the first place if it was for his own ego boost. He has made clear that he does not believe in the American Ideal or even the American Dream. His dreams include only himself.

    Let me make another point clear; I think the entire election should be nullified. I am not a fan of Hillary, she was the least of two evils. I think we should set precedent and have another election with those two NOT being allowed to run. I know that will never happen, I know we are stuck with this blustering idiot, but that does not mean I have to support or stand by him just because he "knew how to win", too bad he didn't and still doesn't know how to be the leader of the Free world.

    #22 I liked your comment David but wanted to take some time to contemplate my answer. I do not agree with the violence that has occurred, I dream of being as strong and passive as Dr. King, but I still have that temper to work on!!. I'm angry at the election results, that is obvious but it is because of my admiration for leaders like Dr. King that I say that what has occurred this year is an insult to the American ideals and Trump made a mockery of all that minorities and women have fought against for decades if not centuries. He will never be my president and never earn my respect because of his words and actions. Why? because we will now get political spin by the professionals while the truth of his character is burned into our memories by this horrendous election. This nation is not a place where people should live in fear of being taken from their homes, being loaded on to buses, and shipped out of the country like cattle.
    Whether it was blustering talk or not, they apparently do not understand that, as my young Hispanic man illustrated by being afraid to come to a community event. MANY do not understand that it was hot air, if it was, that he was spewing across the airwaves, around the globe. The terrorist camped out around the world may not understand that it was hot air, those suffering from mental illnesses may not understand that it was rhetoric and 'just campaigning' to win bullsh**. Those are some of the people that concern me. We live in different times David, where words misspoken can bring disastrous consequences to our country and our people. So the question is: Is our country going to be given time to show it was all bullsh** or will we suffer the consequences before he is even inaugurated? End Part 1

    #15. And it's not at all hypocritical to say "throw them out", "I'd like to take them out back", call people vulgar names... Only to ask us all to come together after he is elected?

    "Trump has been mired in scandals and gaffes throughout the election. More than a dozen women have accused him of sexual assault after a hot mic tape revealed him bragging about โ€œgrabbingโ€ women by the genitals; he has made vague insinuations connecting President Obama and Clinton to terrorism groups; he led a campaign built on wild inaccuracies and vague to nonexistent policy proposals; and he built his campaign on divisive anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim rhetoric, garnering even the support of white nationalists."

    "Now it is time for America to bind the wounds of division, to get together... I say it is time for us to come together as one united people.
    ...It is a movement comprised of Americans from all races, religions, backgrounds, and beliefs, who want and expect our government to serve the people, and serve the people it will."-Trump

    #22 'it just seems like during every presidential election the political mudslinging on all sides becomes the "worst ever."' '


    How do you think he blew by 16 - count them, 16 - other party candidates this year? (Many of them were seasoned politicians and/or governors.) Because nobody has witnessed anything like him. They were utterly incapable of slingin' "it" with him!

    Let's just say he has a good 155 statements to answer for in his first 100 days:

    For example, there were more honorable gun duels than his statement #42: โ€œI could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldnโ€™t lose voters.โ€ (Rally in Iowa, January 23, 2016)" . . .
    "May 30, 1806: Andrew Jackson and Charles Dickinson. Dickinson was killed and Jackson wounded. Upon his election to the Presidency in 1829, Jackson became the only U.S. President to have killed a man in a duel."

    Perhaps you know of another candidate who did more bragging on tape of grabbing women as he pleased?

    Now that Obama is leaving office and the election is over - you liberals / progressives / democrats have time on your hands. I would suggest you soend it reading Barack Obama's biographies, his speeches, his pile of Executive Orders and watch the crafted image of his Cult of Personality. If you are up for a bigger enlightening challenge as to how Un-American his two terms were ~ I encourage you to read V. I. Lenin's 1908 "What is to be Done" and compare / contrast the Soviet Marxist programs positioned on "Land for Peasants" and the 0's " Universal HealthCare " aka ObamaCare. Double bonus points if you are able to connect the parallels and see why ObamaCare & Obama were nothing more than a Soviet 2.o upload attempt.

    @Mohammed A. Jawad A very well written article. I'm actually more concerned about Trumps' connections with the Russians and the Russian Hacking led Wikileaks that influenced the US election. Trump's a self promoter and actor and I see already bailing on his plan to abolish Obamacare, as he states that he's planning on keeping most of the key legislation. He's not going to build the wall in Mexico. My guy in Russian intelligence Dept. stated to me that Trump will be meeting with Putin shortly, I'm interested to see what he reports to me regarding that meeting......
