I have been told that I am “headstrong.” The same person also told me that potential employers don’t like that in an employee and I should “tone it down.” What am I twelve and standing up on a moving school bus during a freaking field trip? I am headstrong and I like headstrong people.
I respect people in authority but I’m not gonna nod my head in agreement about something I don’t agree with or think there may be a better option. I believe a truly great boss surrounds him or herself with headstrong people. You wanna be king of the jungle not just a herdsman of some dumb sheep.
I have actually been required to attend team building seminars where we threw around bean bags and balloons and were told “there are no bad ideas in brainstorming.” Uh….yes there ARE bad ideas in brainstorming Mr. Einstein. Doesn’t anyone remember “New Coke” or “Crystal Pepsi?” If it’s a bad idea you are going to get bad results. It seems that people SAY they want honesty right up until it’s something that they don’t agree with. How about this for honesty: If you need to force your employees to play with balloons and bean bags to increase office morale….you are running a daycare and not a business.
I have always learned the most from people I disagreed with. It forces you to think in a different direction. I’m not saying that everyone I have disagreed with has taught me something because I’ll be honest again: There are a LOT of stupid people in this world. I don’t think that’s an opinion because I live in Florida and that pretty much is a statement of fact.
I will never say “what you wanna hear” but I will say “how I feel.” If more people did this on a daily basis then we would be a much more productive society. Again…this is just my opinion. Maybe I’m just being headstrong.

This nation truly is messed up. Currently we are on “high alert” for a terrorist attack yet we still fear and make a big deal about “the nipple.” I’m talking about another case of a woman getting chastised for breast feeding her child in public.
What is it about the nipple that makes us make zero sense? Men like boobs. Most like big boobs. Many women spend a large amount of money to make their boobs bigger but if for some reason “the nipple” makes an appearance then a lot of people have a problem with it. The nipple is necessary for the boob. Without the nipple the boob would look like a house without a roof.
Men go on the internet to look at boobs. A lot of men go to seedy clubs with loud music and ridiculous prices for beer to look at boobs. Guys go to the beach and leer at women in bikinis just to get a look at some boobs but once ya add “the nipple then all hell breaks loose.
Breast feeding isn’t about the boob or about the nipple it’s about feeding a hungry baby. Imagine if every time you were hungry you had to retreat to a spot of isolation to feed your pie hole. I would much rather have a woman feed her child in public than hear the baby scream like it was in competition for “Colic Child of the Year.”
It’s time we come to our senses about the nipple—we all have them so let’s show the nipple a little respect and make them feel a little bit of love.
