Constrained circumstances can bring the best out of you.

dievca has been pushed into a place not of her choosing. Decisions have been made for her, without her consent. The discussion happened after the fact. As deivca stepped away to view the larger picture, she realized that this process has been instituted time and time again over the years, it’s a habitual process.

But, this time there is a difference.

dievca is aware. she is someone who rises up to challenges and produces better work under pressure. she has logic, clear-headed analysis and determination in her repertoire.
Watch her win.

she accepts to be bound by Her Master, but not by any other.

      Thank you — I am dealing with it as best I can. I’m not sure what the final response will be…but I have been giving it my all with sincerity and clarity.

  2. A wise man who put up with me with patience taught me to ‘take a balcony time’…to retreat and see detached, including myself.
    It’s enlightening and liberating…it’s empowering.

      In the beginning, I was very twisted in the middle. The past month, I was able to step away and regain perspective – which has helped clear my mind, immensely.

    I so get this, happened to me just recently. So far it’s been a positive change but still one that was imposed. Hopefully your situation will be a positive one as well. ๐ŸŒผ๐Ÿ’š๐ŸŒผ

      Oh, I am happy for you! Excellent. I am afraid mine is coming from an oblivious/selfish place and is a bit ugly — so I am trying to take the “high road” and be open and generous while working around it. May not end up well, but I will be able to look myself in the mirror and say, “I have been honest and done my best.”

      Thank you. I’m rarely a door mat — but there are times when you are so overwhelmed and frustrated, it’s easier to curl in and hide. Not this time for me.

      We will see, but I am trying to sort this out and I’ve come to the point where, now, I am not really sure what I want as a conclusion~

    Just take the steps you need to take. Sometimes we don’t get the clear picture until we take those steps toward whatever it is and as we do it all comes into focus. It’s in the walking it out that we can make decisions.
