Pretty much everyone in my family is in love with that commercial. That one from State Farm that has the beautiful girl going on a date with a French model she met on the internet. Obviously, he is no French model. My dad gets a kick out of it and giggles every time, whereas my granny and papa walk around and say Bonjour as southern as they can. It’s like their own special joke. Sometimes I catch my dad rewinding the commercial to hear it for the 50th time. But for the past few days, I have really wondered, how much do we actually believe it. How much have we relied on the internet to provide the truth. We don’t even check it anymore, one site says it, it must be true.
Today I posted an article about the book “How to Train your Child” by Micheal Pearl. In the heat of the moment I was livid. A parent who does not respect and revere the responsibility and gift of raising a child, should not have them. Point blank ( One of those things that make me irate.) On a another note though, I haven’t read the book. I do not officially know. (Please do not think that I am giving this man an out. I am simply going to make my own decisions about the book and his website.) I think so many times I play right into the hands of the media and jump at their rally. I think we need to stop. I think we need to figure things out for ourselves, instead of being ignorant and lazy.
Yea. I said that. Don’t be the beautiful ditsy girl. Don’t buy that stereotype. If you believe it, Prove it. If you don’t, you better be able to back up why. Do not ride on other peoples coat tails. People may or may not agree with you, but if their integrity stands up there will be some ounce of respect. I will respect someone way more if they can tell me why than if they agree with me. I feel like we do this so much lately, We believe what someone is selling us on and not what we have earned for ourselves. I have been mulling over this subject for the past few days but it hit home after that article.
Rant over for the day. Be on the look out for the wedding festivities/ best friend times/ crafting mishaps that are sure to happen this week. 😀 and if you just happen to want to laugh
