Friday Fragments

This week I have twice been messed over by rules that basically punished me for doing the right thing. Now, one can have multiple reactions to said occurrences but here is my philosophy. Just keep doing the right things. Yes, it may bite you in the butt from time to time but I sleep with a clear conscious and that is worth more than any benefit I might derive from skirting my moral compass for personal gain.

I have felt for a long time that one of the hardest challenges to being a good person is to 'get dragged down' by those who either seek to take advantage of your kindness or by rules that punish good behavior (mostly because they are I'll concieved).

I love my students but there were five different instances of their printers either running out of ink or not working properly. Here are a few pieces of advice for you: 1) always have an extra cartridge at your home; and 2) don't leave it to the last minute to print it. Have your assignment completed and printed the night before. By taking these two steps, you will have a lot of stressed reduced.

Of the best laid plans - isn't it amazing how those don't always work out even when well concieved? Then again, I can take solice in the analogy that I am mere facing a tropical storm of work rather than a hurricane. I was hoping however, for a mere shower. Oh well! Life is indeed good. Happy & healthy family, food on the table, roof over the head living in relative peace. How can one really complain?

  1. Wayne's World sounds pretty good at the end there.
    It is hard to always do the right thing and then be punished for it. Like you I will not give up and in the long run I do believe good always wins.
    Have a positively powerful week!
