Sittin in the middle of the
and wishing you
“wicked cool Wednesday”
The emails came in yesterday from many who responded and felt deeply on the thoughts written on yesterday’s blog…
Yes seems I was on a roll
thanks for all the mail,
I enjoy hearing for you here and there and everywhere!
amid the outrage
that republican mayor up in NJ
Gov. Chris Christie has strongly defended his decision to have flags flown at half-staff Saturday for Whitney Houston!
So there ya go,
the man is standing his ground and saying the flag will be lowered to honor on of New Jersey’s own, her contributions and cultural, musical influence and the impact she gave and that she never forgot where she came from.
I was thinking about those words today;
about the impact of music
the beauty of each note
the power behind each word
what we each do in our lives
with hopes with dreams
with each foot print we leave.
that ole’ reality crept in…
Speaking all over the place
Compassion Fatigue to those who bear witness to stories that are hard to imagine in a regular day;
hearing that they are weary,
that organizations don’t care the way they used to…
I then hear that
Compassion Fatigue is not as
as it once was
I become amazed.
For those doing the work say how they have waited for conferences
to address this very subject.
And I have to wonder.
Why isn’t the message getting out
to workers, to hospitals and hospices
that they have to take care of those doing such hard work;
that conferences and seminars addressing
are worthy of attendence for those doing the work that involves their brain, their bodies, their nervous systems
as they deal with human conditions, human sorrow and stories that would make you stay awake at night as you absorb them into your own meaning systems along with your own home?
Many of these professionals
take those traumas, those stories into their very souls
not one story
many … day in and day out
and become weary
Who cares for the caregivers?
Compassion Fatigue is flourishing in our country
as the best
find no where to share their stories,
no energy for their own lives,
give their best to those they are paid to provide best care to.
So as I sit in the middle of the week;
I am working on the program that involves a keynote I am going to present to a healthcare organization
hopefully to restore
to those fine folks
that may be providing
And I can’t help but wonder,
when are organizations
going to take a moment to realize
of sending employees to seminars
to have retreats
and host conferences
having professionals who are weary
walk wounded as a result of
And at times I join everyone
“there’s gotta be something more”
Today is one of those days!
I’m ready for a little more “bliss”
Sugarland “something more”
At times I’m thinkin we all can relate to the words here…
we sure can appreciate when we feel that those we work for
would have our backs
would “stand by me/us”
So for today
my thoughts are short and
“keeping it real”
to let you know
that those out there doin the work
are listening and doing
not just one, but so many
they take it into their hearts, nervous systems,
see more than most will ever dream of…
need to stand up
and find ways to restore them
that are focuses on restoring their passion and buoyancy!
Wishing you a day
zip in your dooo dah!
