I was sitting in my room working when Little Girl runs in holding a giant nerf gun, with tears streaming down her face and crying loudly, “I’m a Powerful Princess and Nobody Can Stop Me!!” Then she screamed something about her brothers not getting her. This little girl seriously cracks me up time and time again. Seeing her in her cute little pink dress with a giant nerf gun, displays exactly the type of personality she has. After all, she does have 3 older brothers! She is such a wonderful addition to our family, and keeps us laughing all the time.
I felt badly that she was crying, but it was so difficult to fight back the giggles. She saw me smiling and it then made her smile and start to laugh. I love my funny girl.
I realized that the statement Brielle made, “I’m a powerful princess and nobody can stop me”, is something that we should all embrace. Can you imagine the confidence we would exude if we believed this statement, about ourselves?
I have been feeling very helpless lately, when it comes to my husband’s school and how poorly it is managed. They don’t seem to care about their students at all; or their success. It often feels like they even try to sabotage the students, just so they can get more tuition out of them. I think the majority of the students take longer to graduate than the allotted 3 years, because the school makes things so difficult. I realize they shouldn’t make things easy for the students, as they are going to be chiropractors in the end, but I’m not talking about the classes or grades. They have requirements set for the clinic, and then they make it nearly impossible to achieve those requirements in a reasonable amount of time. Not only that, but the doctors there are rude and demeaning to the interns. I was appalled at how my husband’s pod doc talked to him in front of his patients this week. So RUDE and uncalled for! How are patients supposed to respect my husband as their intern/doctor when the doctor over him treats him like a child, in front of his patients?! It is quite frustrating. I am starting to develop more of that “powerful princess mentality”, but until my husband does, it will be difficult to stop feeling so frustrated with the school. Not to say my husband should act like a princess, but the mentality, perhaps. Or maybe even a prince?
Do you have any personal affirmations or statements that you try to live by?
