Mindless TV might very well be my kryptonite at times. While I don’t watch reality TV, I’d probably be better off at times if I did watch it. What? Just kidding.
Currently, I have Netflix on and am watching Family Guy. I could explain this better better if my husband and son were watching with me. Sadly, it’s all me. This is where I ask “What is going on in my brain?”
Absolutely nothing, friends. Nothing.
I’m watching bad TV, alone. Jabbering like a mag pie on my blog about nothing. But I’m going to assume this is okay, because sometimes, we just have to write about… nothing. Fluff.
In all seriousness, I’d love to wax poetic about Emma Watson’s speech before the United Nations. about enacting positive change and taking steps to achieve a solidarity movement for gender equality in the HeForShe campaign. You see, I believe in gender equality. I’m also a feminist who didn’t know she was a feminist until many years of marriage.
My main goal, I’ve always said, is to empower women. I saw my Mother’s power stripped away from my father and that is what shaped my youth, and my view of men in general. Don’t get me wrong, there were many positive male role models in my life, but the influence of my father still affects how I feel.
Nearly 20 years ago, Hillary Clinton addressed the Fourth World Conference on Women and stated “It is no longer acceptable to discuss women’s rights as separate from human rights.” Quite frankly, in my opinion, things have gotten worse for women. Right now, I don’t even have the bandwidth to express myself. I’m not even sure I know HOW to share my reasons.
What I do know is that I support you. All of you. I try to come at everything from a judgment free zone. Admittedly, I do have personal beliefs which will sway me, but I love dealing with logic and seeing all sides of a problem before coming to a conclusion. The older I get, the more I listen and I talk much less. I still talk a lot, but as someone who didn’t have people to listen to her for many years, I love knowing I can open myself up to the zen of just listening.
It’s the second time this week I’ve been all over the place. There’s a lot going on that I’m not at liberty to write about… yet. But when I’m, you’ll understand why. Frankly, I’m limited on mental bandwidth. It’s all focused on another project that’s taking up quite a bit of time right now, but will ease up soon and then I’ll be able to change my flow and develop a new one.
As much as I hate to, I must leave you now to attend to the laundry, because nothing says love like clean socks.
