On Facebook news-feeds we have seen and read about the doing away with the teaching of cursive writing. Personally I believe cursive writing allows us to have our own individual signature. Some one posted that doing away with cursive writing would lead to our signing with an X. It is so difficult to see things that means so much to our identity being removed and each day we are faced with more changes to our traditions.
It is sad to loose another way of life that has just deep roots to our memories and identity. I would like to challenge us parents and grandparents to not depend on our schools for the training of our children. We need to stand up against the machine and be heard and not stick our heads in the sand. Let's take up the slack.
Let's turn this negative into a positive.
I propose we make learning cursive writing a game. Make a game of learning a secret penmanship. Remember when we all learned how to speak Pig Latin? I have fond memories of my daddy telling us kids the legend of how it was used and we all went around with our secret language.
What ideas do you have for keeping and making traditions that last?
Please share and let's keep this topic of interest out in public. Like and share on Facebook.
Look back on your dating life. Can you remember the people with whom you have experienced the obsessive-can’t-stop-thinking-about-you,all-consuming, feels-so-good-it-hurts, kind of attraction. Did you plan this attraction? Did you go out and create this attraction? Did you know that it was going to happen when it did? I would say probably not. It happens to us all.
Attraction is a powerful force that occurs within you as a certain combination of behaviors, appearance, scents, voice, and personality are blended to create a unique formula that pulls you toward the object of your affection like an inescapable magnetic force. Can you say, "WOW?"
I was not able to escape the grips of attraction. Attraction is there to cause us to want to spend time with another person. So powerful we forget to eat, sleep or talk to another of the opposite sex.
Attraction is a feeling process, not a thinking process. The ability to think correctly flies out the window when we are in that powerful attraction mode. The pull can't be explain and although our thoughts influence our feelings we can not make sense of these attraction behaviors.
How many times has attraction led you to a relationship that was not good for you? We soon realize that we are not in charge when attraction kicks in. In retrospect we ask ourselves..."What was I thinking?"
The good news is that we do not have to act on every experience we are attracted to. Our attractions can exist without our having to act on them. We do not have any control over who we are attracted to, but we do have control over if we chose to respond to the attraction.
When you feel these strong attraction pulls realize that it is there to only bring you closer to that person. That magical pull will reside sooner or later. Attraction will not be the glue, but real love. Real love and commitment will last. Premarital education is the key to get to the real person you are in love with. Premarital education will ask get to the reality that your crazy in love mind is blind to.
