Disagreeing with Kindness

Posted by Pam Hastings on Tuesday, September 24, 2013, In : Lessons Learned 


All of us experience something almost every day of our lives. We disagree with someone over an issue. The trick is after we are finished with our disagreement, are we still friends ? Do we still like each other? Is there still respect in the relationship ?

The answer to those three questions above should be a resounding YES !

Sadly however, that is not always the case.

If you are like me, you feel passionate about many things. Your faith, your family, your convictions, your politics are all ar...

The Face of Evil

Posted by Pam Hastings on Tuesday, September 17, 2013,



This little cartoon figure above is one of the evil pictures that pops up when one googles in " images of evil people." I wish that true evil was as harmless as this guy above. Sadly it isn't. What happened yesterday at the Navy Yard was insanity unleashed. Just craziness running rampant. Yet today I keep hearing reports on the news that the police are trying to determine the motive of the killer.

Really ?

Why ?

I mean, can we make sense of insanity ? When attempting to ascribe a motive for t...

For over a month I have been hearing about the massive " Million Muslim March " that had been planned to take place yesterday. For weeks, the so called organizers of the march were being interviewed on various news programs as to their motives, their reasons for planning such an event on the anniversary of one of the greatest tragedies that our nation has ever faced. Personally, I was disgusted when listening to them and hoped that the event would be a no show...a flop.

My hopes were realized...

 When was the last time that you had a thought, an intuition, an inkling to do something for someone to encourage them....but then you didn't follow through ? If we are honest, all hands should be shooting in the air right now. I think we all have been there.

A friend is sick and we think about sending them a card, or making a meal and surprising them with it. But we don't.

Someone we know seems a bit lonely and isolated...

Something That Some Folks are Addicted To

Posted by Pam Hastings on Tuesday, September 3, 2013, In : Lessons Learned 

 Yesterday I realized an important truth. Some people are simply addicted to drama. They are just not quite content unless some sort of strife or contention is taking place either in their lives or in those around them. Because of this, they are usually the ones who are stirring up the trouble. I used to think that these types of individuals just simply need to mature, or learn how to navigate through relationships in a more peaceable way, but now I am seriously wondering if this " draw to dr...
