The past weeks have been so busy. Trying to work the kinks out in corporate america can be exhausting. Trying to find where you fit in the scope of your day. Thank goodness I have the sense to just stop now and rest. God I love it!
As corporate american remains oblivious of the peoples needs, I strongly suspect that people start waking up and take their lives back. Have you ever said “What about my needs?” Stress in the work place can be a killer. Literally! So many people bring their jobs home with them. Well… There goes that peace Sanctuary. Here’s my 2 cents!
LEAVE THE OFFICE AT THE OFFICE!
Corporate America should recognize that their business success depends on their employees. (Not your CEO or CFO) Your family and health must come first. Right? Well. There is that delimma that so many face. Especially if they are sick. Stay at home and get better or go to work and risk getting everyone else sick or making yourself worse. There should not be such a delimma in the work place. Nothing should come between the employee’s health and their family time. You can die rich and never get to enjoy it. Or you can remove the green backs from your mind, and find solace in knowing what you have is ENOUGH.
As we age, we begin to realize the truth of our existence even if it’s just for a moment. The challenges that face me are small compared to someone else’s. Another’s journey is just as valid as mine. What about you? Do you feel yourself changing? I do. I care less about certain things, and care more about people’s needs compared to my own. I have always cared about other people before myself. So why should aging be any different? I suspect its the proces now of how I care.
When I am working in the theater I care more about the process my people are taking on their journey to being whole. Theater for me is a way of healing. I take the issues of life and re-create them on the stage so all can find their truth. We have so many complex people in the world, and I would love to take them and examine their brain to see what kind of theater I could create out of the mess in their brains. Weird huh?
As I continue my path of healing people through theater, I am reminded not to take on to much, because in the end it’s me who will pay the price.
I will suffer because, I will have done to much and now have to recover my mind and body for a week. However, as I say what I say. I am reminded in life’s essence that in truth WE ARE ALL WORTHY of each other.
April 5th – 7th, 2013 at Union Baptist Church, 119 High Street, Mystic CT. We will embark on a mission I have been working on for years.
The I Am Worthy Project: Will bring family and Community back together to have a conversation about Suicide Prevention. We will begin to rebuild our community from the inside out. The Arts initiated Weekend will be the beginning of something amaZing! Before you lay down tonight tell someone that they are Worthy. They are Worthy of being your friend, husband, wife, brother, sister, mother,father or significant other.
Or most importantly! They are Worthy of just being themselves.
Peace, Love and Light,
As a mother, educator, activist, and community member I am very ANGRY of what happened in Sandybrook Elementary School in Newton CT. That beautiful town that I once lived in has has lost its innocent and is shattered. There have been many nights that I have been unable to sleep for being uncomfortable about the lack of urgency for this epidemic. The words I have spoken about suicide prevention and mental health have come full circle and it’s frightening.
My journey has not been one of ease, but one of compassion for another human being. As I have travel through life, watching loved ones; friends and others leave this world too soon due to metal illness and other issues that could have been prevented if only someone would listen. Our congressional leaders are also responsible for helping to change what needs to be changed. Stand up with us and take a stand for mental illness, and ask our leaders to provide the funding necessary.
As a producer of theater for social change I have been working with a partner to bring to light more awareness about suicide prevention. I have been living, breathing and fighting this battle for so long that it has become engrained in me. There are so many Americans who are battling with mental health issues that it’s staggering.
We continue to PATCH the wound instead of find the solution to the problem. WE are all accountable and responsible for this plight. Countless lives of babies, and adults were lost because we fail to provide the necessary services for our families and its children.
We have failed as parents, neighbors and communities because we are not tending to our duties as good citizens. Our duty is to love and help one another. It’s time to STOP and go back to our values of respecting one another and help those who are in need.
Our Project I AM WORTHY addresses the issues of Suicide in away that educates and brings people together. Please support our project I am worthy and help us support our communities.
I am thankful to our President who is ever-present in times of great need.
May we find a moment to pray, hug our children and one another.
Each season I learn something new. I have long since given up on those people who have their own agenda, and are blind to what’s really important. “PEOPLE”
Your latest play isn’t as important as the message of being part of someone’s life. Your lack of understanding that it’s not about competition, but of collaboration is what you’re missing. “People make the moments in your life”
Camilla Ross says to you….”Life will not wait for you to catch up. It will kindly bid you farewell on it’s way by leaving wrinkles to show for its time.
Leaving you wondering were it all went. Or leaving you with your age and ignorance in tow. It’s your choice how you chose to spend it.
