How Do You Cope When Stuff Happens On Your Safety Level?

How Do You Cope When Stuff Happens On Your Safety Level? | Authoring | Scoop.it
Louise Malbon-Reddix's insight:
Perhaps you wonder why I share job information from my Victory Road Wellness Center Page, and I am glad you asked that question!! The short and sweet answer is that I want everyone to be whole, and complete!  Stuff happens in our lives. Seems like everyone should know what to do when "stuff" happens. Well different things affect us on different levels, in case you did not know. And believe me, a lot of us do not know.  Despite all of our differences, and individualities, we all have some things in common, and that is we will all grow up!  And we all go through stages of growth and development.  Some of us look at others and wonder what in the world is wrong with them. The truth is that we do not understand where in the scheme of things, or on the pyramid a situation lands for others.  To bring this into a sharper focus for you, and perhaps at the same time to shed some light on why/how people cope and deal even in situations that for sure are very negative for even life itself at times.  Yes, even situations of abuse and neglect and violence. For sure, they do not like violence, but this is all they know and in some sad instances have grown accustomed too! In the case of children, not wanting to leave from those situations of abuse, this is a part of their bottom floor.  Which for me in every sense is a contradiction to the word - safety.  And to take them from it, or in other cases where it is ripped from them as in cases of war or divorce or the like which does not have  adequate resources of support would be, and is  very detrimental, because that situation is sadly,  all they know. Now, here it is in definition and then I am sharing what I hope will be "supportive" and someone's blessing! Maslow's hierarchy of needs:  From Wikipedia Maslow's hierarchy of needs, represented as a pyramid Maslow's hierarchy of needs is a theory in psychology proposed by Abraham Maslow in his 1943 paper "A Theory of Human Motivation" in Psychological Review. His theories parallel many other theories of human developmental psychology, some of which focus on describing the stages of growth in humans. Maslow used the terms "physiological", "safety", "belongingness" and "love", "esteem", "self-actualization" and "self-transcendence" to describe the pattern that human motivations generally move through. Maslow's hierarchy of needs is often portrayed in the shape of a pyramid with the largest, most fundamental levels of needs at the bottom and the need for self-actualization at the top...  Safety needsWith their physical needs relatively satisfied, the individual's safety needs take precedence and dominate behavior. In the absence of physical safety – due to war, natural disaster, family violence, childhood abuse, etc. – people may (re-)experience post-traumatic stress disorder or transgenerational trauma. In the absence of economic safety – due to economic crisis and lack of work opportunities – these safety needs manifest themselves in ways such as a preference for job security, grievance procedures for protecting the individual from unilateral authority, savings accounts, insurance policies, reasonable disability accommodations, etc. This level is more likely to be found in children because they generally have a greater need to feel safe. Safety and Security needs include: Personal securityFinancial securityHealth and well-beingSafety net against accidents/illness and their adverse impacts A persoanl thanks to Councilwoman Taveras too for sharing this reminder for youth employment:The Prince George's County's Youth@Work/Summer Youth Enrichment Program (SYEP) for 2015. The Prince George's County Youth@Work/Summer Youth Enrichment Program provides an opportunity for young people across the County to participate in career development, life-skills training and summer employment opportunities.

Things Not To Say When Someone Is Grieving

Things Not To Say When Someone Is Grieving | Authoring | Scoop.it
Louise Malbon-Reddix's insight:

Things Not To Say When Someone Is Grieving

 

Everyone means well, and I am so sure that the unknown Author who wrote about the reason, season or a lifetime for someone to come into your life. People kept saying that to me, and it would and still does get me every time.

For true, it is hard to know what to say to someone who is grieving, and especially when the loss is so fresh. I learned a lot going through this time in my life. You can bet, I am not so fast with those canned answers anymore. I ask the person what they need. I let them talk. Truth, you don't know what you want or need, and just have to take this walk one day at a time.

The best thing I think is to help them with a schedule of things to do. I lost track of the mundane things. The pain of the loss just takes over you. I went back to work at first. That was all I could do. That was the last place he and I were together. My knees almost buckled the first day. I don't know how I made it across that parking lot. It was only God who held me up. I would go to sleep as soon as I got home. Then I would wake up at 2AM, and couldn't go back to sleep. I talked to one of my friends at work, who just happened to be a Psych Nurse who helped me to understand that what I was doing was going to sleep early to avoid the pain. After she helped me to realize what I was doing, I made myself a schedule; so I went to bed later. I just didn't go home until time to go to sleep. Spent many days at the park, or sitting in front of the house.

Once again in my life, I had to make a plan of care for myself to get through this awful time. Short term goals, sleep, rest, and safety. Scheduled everything on the calendar to keep track. Set out trash on Sunday and Wednesday night and so on. Long term goal of getting through the grief process. So, please, no canned answers, they don't help!

Ok, now that I can look up and the tears aren't flowing, I know it wasn't a lifetime! Yes, even up to now, I still miss my beloved! Richard Reddix Sr. Sunset ~ 2009

And oh yes, one other thing I did to help me go through this time, I wrote a book! It's purpose, to help others to go through a God awful time in their life. It talks about it from many aspects. The grief process of relationships, divorce, loosing your spouse through death. And not only a spouse, but brothers and sisters and mom and dad. Taboos associated with widows, like that dating thing. And how it affects you depending on your age when loss happens , and do much more!!! Check it out:

Tribute In Song!!!

Tribute In Song!!! | Authoring | Scoop.it
Hello Everybody!!! On December 7, 2009, my beloved Richard Reddix Sr. Departed this life and transitioned to Heaven. Yes his heart was that big and he was so living, that yes, he is one of the residents of Heaven. When I heard this song, the tears hit my eyes so hard, they hurt. Let me tell you that crying is not for sissy's!!! This excerpt from the University of Maryland Faux Paz A Cappella musical selection so expresses one of the cries of my heart for my late husband. He did so much for so many, with so little!!! He put kids through school was a foster parent for many. All without a High School Diploma!!! Worked 2-3 jobs always. Never really stopped along the way to take care of himself. And when we married, the love was still there!!!! So this powerful little song so pays tribute to him. He was here!!! Enjoy this little snipette!! I have listened to the beautiful voices that blend in so much harmony over and over. And, may I ask you too to help me also pay a special tribute to my late husband? So much I would like to do, that includes making it easier for widows everywhere on their journey through widowhood!! So much!!! So I am asking again, because every little bit helps!!!

You may not always feel like it, but just show up, and yes you guessed it - Stand In Your Anointment-This Too Shall Pass! Remember, light will always conquer darkness!

Praying for Family of This Great Man of God | Authoring | Scoop.it
To, All, friends and family and strangers, near or far. I too am shocked and saddened to learn of the loss of this great Man of God, Dr. Myles Munroe, his wife Ruth and daughter. Praying for his family and church all over the world at this time. Please know that I know to well the heartbreak and grief that accompanied a horrific and sudden loss of a loved one - my late husband for me. My book Stand In Your Anointment - This Too Shall Pass was born out of the pain of that loss and as a way to pull myself up and out of the thralls of that grief. I didn't know of many resources available to help me at that time. I have set out to try and change that, and so want to be able to help others going through this time in their lives. I am a minister and a NLP Coach and Trainer and, if I can in anyway help anyone at this time, I will. Stand In Your Anointment-This Too Shall Pass!

Strange And Hidden Effects of Poverty

Strange And Hidden Effects of Poverty | Authoring | Scoop.it
Strange and Hidden Effects Of Poverty For sanity's sake and to give a little look into times behind the Chapter on Dealing with the deaths. I am one of many siblings of which 10 of us grew up and were around each other for most of our little lives. As you can imagine, with that many children, plenty was always a worry. New? Well about every now and sometime or other, something new, as in brand new you would receive. Mostly hand me downs and what other people would give you, garage sales, and thrift stores is where your sustenance came from. That was just life, and we made the best of it! We were clean and fed, and learned so much, all along the way!!! We were all of us and we stayed together, we're each other's best of friends. The oldest taught the youngest. We learned how to repair and reuse, and to make do with what we had. No screw driver, no worry, use a butter knife. Start with the thin end and move it through the screw until you find the right width of the screw head. Just that right spot, so you would not bend the knife and so that it yielded enough strength to twist that screw right out. No hammer, no worry! Use a can edge, or a rock from outside. Can you imagine the throb in your thumb if you missed your target? No ruler? No worry! Get you a piece of string, or a paper bag, or a long switch and mark the length you need in it. Take your ruler with it's marks on it with you to the store and measure what you want with your "ruler". From curtains to linoleum! Cooking, yes you had to cook enough for all! To this day I don't to cook unless I have someone around who is going to eat. I mean, I will cook all day, and a lot of whatever it is as long as someone is going to be there to eat it! Measure what? When you cup your hand and pour the salt, or the sugar in there, that space between the three lines, that is a teaspoon. Four times, a tablespoon. The butter has the measure on each stick. Tip the carton of milk, and pour for thaaaat long, one cup. Use a cup to measure the flour, or rice out. The pots themselves come in quart size on up. So again, measure what? Spices to taste. And that is the reason why you could sit and watch everyone else eat. You kinda get full from all that tasting!!! I have for as long as I could remember just loved the smell of brand new tires. Couldn't put a rhyme or reason to it until this morning. I was listening to the news and was hearing them line up the charges against the Pennsylvania kidnapper and his other crimes, and about the Matthew guy and all of his crimes, and found myself wondering why? What in the world would cause these dudes to do such atrocious, and heinous things!!! Now at the same time, or near abouts as I am prepping my patient for her treatment she picks up the chlor prep and starts to smell it, and says she just likes the smell of it and doesn't know why. I replied, a lot of us like things and we just don' know why. I myself like the smell of new tires. Brand new tires before they are ever used. My patients says, "Oh, you like the smell of rubber." And I said I guess that is what it is, and I didn't know why. Then I said, I like the smell of brand new sneakers too. Then it dawned on me what the reason for this fetish for lack of a better word right now is. As you remember now, with all of my siblings, getting new things didn't happen very often. The times were few and far between. We were raised in upstate New York. And there was a shoe factory called EJ's. And as you would know, you could go there and buy shoes. Sneakers to be specific. And I am guessing and putting 2 and 2 together at the same time. You would smell the new rubber smell almost as soon as you opened the door. And I must have unconsciously made a connection to the smell of new rubber going to get those new shoes!! Wow!!! After all of this time, I have my answer. Still can't understand what would drive those dudes to those heinous acts, but am so amazed at the effects of poverty, so neatly disguised as really liking the smell of new rubber. And I do hope and pray they find out the why and the what for for them, but where they can do no harm to anyone else. Have you bought my Book?

Pills can't numb it . Mind playing tricks on you. People are watching. The world won't stop and let you lay down for a minute. Bills still due. Still have to work. No where to go to get away from the pain. Can't hide the pain. All you can do is endure through it. Thank God for family and friends. The pain does not go away. You learn somehow to live with it. It simply just takes time for you to adjust and find a new "normal" as you learn somewhere in this processing of your grief to - Stand In Your Anointment - This To Shall Pass!!!

My story for true is contained in this picture. My oh My!!! Where is  the time going? August 8th came a left quietly for some. But for me it was a matter of the heart.  Six, yes hard to believe; but 6 years ago on 8-08, my bleoved and I stole away to the Court House in PG County and were married.  That precious man - Richard Reddix Sr, did not want to wait any longer! And to make me happy, we still  had a "Church Wedding, called a White Wedding by some on September 13th, 2008. 

Mr. Reddix is no longer with me/us - But I will feel him in my heart Forever!!! Gone, still loved and definitely not forgotten!!!

 

To help with the pain of such a tragic loss, I wrote a book!  Would love your support with it!  Not just for me, but to help others who like me have to go through a process all of a sudden without warning to get through!! Key word THROUGH!!!

 

Would love your support and I so thank you.

Emotions and How They Effect the Body

Emotions and How They Effect the Body | Authoring | Scoop.it
Louise Malbon-Reddix's insight:

Halfway through the 4th year going on the 5th year Withought my Beloved Richard Reddix Sr.!

 

Resharing, this video, as I miss him so much as this is June, near about July; halfway through the year:

 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=--qMq5dlFaY#t=17

 

What people do not understand is that grief and sadness has an effect on your entire body. It too is pain, a spiritual pain, but pain nonetheless.  In nursing, of which I am a Registered Nurse, we know that chronic pain causes decreased immunity and depression.  Yes it challenges your whole sense of wellbeing!!!  

I have a whole article available on Emotions and How They Effect the Body and will happily share it with you.  You can contact me directly through my webpage: http://www.victoryroadwellnesscenter.com/ , and I will get it right to you!!!

 

Knowing how hard it can be to get through on long journey’s like grief, I just wanted to stop in and give you a little prayer that I pray to help me to get through tough times.  

 

"Lord, help me to remember that nothing is going to happen to me today that you and I together cannot handle!"

 

Amen!

Juneteenth and Voting Rights!!!

Juneteenth and Voting Rights!!! | Authoring | Scoop.it
Louise Malbon-Reddix's insight:

Before this historical day ends - Junteenth, I would like to report that I took advantage of a priveledge long fought for - the right to vote! I have to say as well that I have immensly enjoyed the fact that I have had the opportunity to talk to a lot of our Public Officials!!! Loved it, in fact. Some in person, really in person, like at my house and sitting on my old, old living room furniture, kind of in person. I have seen a lot of them at the Civic Association Meetings, while others, I have gone to their offices!!! Others by email, mentioned by my name, and still some on Facebook too. I have to say that I have actually felt like a real person. Beautiful for real.

But as a lot of you whom I have talked to know, I carry a heavy burden on my heart. I so love that we here in Maryland are concerned with our schools and our children and for sure as a Nurse, a practicing one; our healthcare, keeping taxes down, improving our cities and so much more.

Please know at the outset, I take my own blame and am the poster child for not being prepared and having my own affairs in tip top order.

To that end, I ask you all not to be like me. Take and old fool's piece of advice and STOP what you are doing and HAVE that conversation with your loved ones as to how their affairs should be handled upon their death.

I was not all bad, my beloved and late husband Richard Reddix Sr. and I did make out wills. But wills in many instances, are not enough. This I have discovered oh the so hard way!!!

Many things are discovered through probate. And I don't have to tell anyone here how difficult families can be at such a time as this. And yes, oh yes, I am so over it now, about putting my business in the street, because I have been fighting this battle now for 5 years!!!

I sought the help of our Governor when the local level govenrment of Montgomery County Maryland from the Councilman;s Office to the County Executive Office, all very kind, mind you and all gave me audience, but to no avail for this reason or the other.

All to ask, that we pay attention to the current state of affairs in Government and uphold some laws, write some new laws to ensure that a last will and testament can be just that. All to aid in the healing process so that salt does not continually be rubbed in a wound that is slow healing in so many ways on its own anyway.

So what is all of this hullabaloo all about you say? Well I am glad you asked. My late husband Richard Reddix Sr. was born in December of 1939 and times were not so good back then. He didn't graduate from High School, but yet worked and provided for a family and educated those children, some with certificate programs and some with college degrees. Not only did he provide for his own, but was awarded a Citizenship Award during Paris Glendening's tenure as Governor for Maryland for his work as a tireless foster parent in Montgomery County, Maryland.

This man had a heart that was big enough for all to fit in, including me, his 2nd wife. So my heart wants to return to him some of his dignity by ending his affairs in this world the way he wanted them too, and to represent him as the hard working man that he was in life!!!

I really wish to thank Senator Victor Ramirez, Ceretta Lee - Register of Wills in Prince Georges County, Delegate Jolene Ivy, Deni Tavares running for County Council in PG County for sitting and listening to my heart talk on and on about my experiences with the Register of Wills Office in both Prince Georges and Montgomery Counties.

Extra, extra thanks for Senator Ramirez who will get in the fight with you!!! And to Jolene Ivy who too helped me win another batltle I was waging!!! They gave me more than just audience to my cause!!!

Early voting has ended, but you can still make your choices for office known on June 24, 2014! Exercise your God given right to vote!!!

More of his and my story is written in the book I had to write to help me with the pain of loosing such a beautiful soul.

What? Who? Why? War Stories -Then and Now!

What? Who? Why? War Stories -Then and Now! | Authoring | Scoop.it
Louise Malbon-Reddix's insight:

That picture right there is of my late brother James Bullard; lean fighting machine; meaning he was  a Vietnam Veteran!  So was my other brother John Bullard and some family friends too!!

 

The stories they had to tell!!! Some good and some not so good and some heart wrenching.  

 

James never really revealed much from over there. John Thomas revealed only a few stories of what they had to endure. Not being able to sleep much and being on constant vigil.  And, not really knowing who the enemy was or where they were or even if they were kids!!! I understand that a lot of the Vietnam soldiers were children, little boys; dangerous little boys with guns!!!

 

Both of my brothers are deceased and it is my belief now that they suffered a lot from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder!  I so wish I knew then what I know now about returning from war and how they suffer, and are so misunderstood!!!  

 

Basic Training was traumatic too for that matter, but they made it through that.

 

Somewhere in my heart of hearts, I believe this young man has a War Story to tell.  Give him a chance to tell his story! It just may be good, bad or even ugly.  For true, my brothers told stories of good, bad and ugly too in all kinds of ways!!! Racism, comradery, life long friendships too!  The Vietnam Brotherhood is amazing.  Those gentleman brought such a measure of comfort to and at John Thomas' funeral! These guys, white, black  no matter; they stood guard at his wake and went to the gravesite too!!! Such a beautiful and heartwarming and so comforting!!! Thank You, thank you to the Vietnam Veteran Brotherhood!!! I love y'all, and am eternally grateful to you for showing so much love and respect for one of your own, and mine too!!!

 

I know some techniques now that can help with PTSD.  I would like to in some way show my gratitude to you!  Let me know if you would like to learn more! A conversation for sure would not hurt, and we will take it from there!!!

 

Talk Soon!!!

 

Here is a link to an article about Sgt. Bergdahl, I would love to know your thoughts!!! Leave a comment if you would, and thanks!

The Strength of the Black Woman - Do Not Break Her!!!

The Strength of the Black Woman - Do Not Break Her!!! | Authoring | Scoop.it
Louise Malbon-Reddix's insight:

Several years ago, during a conversation with a white nurse, every nerve in my body just cringed. I didn't know if I wanted to hit her or what.  One thing for sure, she had to be given a new look and take on life.  One that would show her the heart and soul of a Black Woman.   

 

We were tendng to the wounds of a black youth that had come in for treatment. Not such a nice young man at all.  His mouth was full of obscenities and curse words. So I asked her if she wanted me to deal with him instead of her.  She was cockey and very sure of herself, and turned and engaged me.with this remark, "I"ll handle him, because I have a house full of niggers myself. "  I asked her what she meant, and she told me that her children were half black, and that she knew how to deal with them. 

 

That remark made me stumble forward!  And she continued on with her neck moving and pointing her finger at me and said I am not afraid of that mother#**!@!  Not only was I in shock, but now I was hurt to, and on so many levels.

 

For the life of me, I do not know who she had imagined that the Black Woman was, or who had demonstrated to her that that was how a black woman acts.  So I asked her to please not to refer to her children as niggers, first of all.  You can walk away at any time you choose, but they have so much to deal with at this time  in their lives, and they don't need to be called a nigger by their own mom. I assured her that the black expereience was more than shaking your neck and cursing.  This was not the time to approach that young black man, as out of order as he was with some more of the wrong ways to act in life! I was so through with her I did not know what to do.  

 

I went to the young man's bedside to administer the medication to him and when he started up, I demanded to be respected by him.  I told him that I could be his mother and certainly he would not want anyone to treat his mother like that. I told him I would do everything in my power to help him through this time, but he had to adress me as a human being and talk to me with some  respect.  This he did, and I kept up my end of the bargain too, and he thanked me before it was all said and done.

 

Most people will look at that picture above and decry foul, and racism and mistreatment. And for sure it does speak volumes about slavery and the mistreatment of black people in our history.  

 

But I beg you to look a little deeper into the eyes of this woman with  a baby on her breast that is obviously not her own. She has a smile on her face, although being forced to endure through some trying times, her breasts are still full of milk. Psychologically, her milk could have dried up if her heart was not in the right place. There is a lot to that breast feeding thing for sure, and that little one on her lap sure does look healthy!!!

 

So if you are going to teach blackness, remember that although her heart is breaking a real black woman will still reach way down within her soul and do everything she can to make sure that a young one is alright!  She has to teach the young ones what to do and expect in life. Although the situations and circumstances may be dire, she thinks of her legacy and the genrations to come, and she teaches them morals and values and respect. She will do,  despite the consequences to herself.

 

Not to worry though, because she knows how to replenish and refresh herself.  She knows how to take it to the Lord in Prayer, and tell God all about it and somehow comes back with more strength and resolve to do whatever the work assigned to her hands is.  She may shed some tears along the way, but she knows who she is and what it is she has to do.  She has to be strong for those who cannot be strong. She really doesn't have the time to do that finger popping, neck turning thing.  It will take away from her resolve and will open doors to those wounded places. Those places where in time she will review and certainly has learned from and will do all in her power not to repeat.  But for now, she must keep her focus on the task at hand. 

 

So the next time someone shows you traits that are not indicative of the Strength of the Black Woman, or dare to say things like  there are so many things wrong with you black woman.   Why don’t you just give up.....

 

Saluting the  African American Women of our lifetime who through their persistence and passion and personal bravery broke down walls and leapt over obstacles in their efforts to make ours a more representative democracy!

 

Oh and by the way, if you do mangae to break her, know that you have  opened up a door to wounds that run deep!  Start praying. 

 

Here is to strong black women. May we know them, may we be them, and may we raise them!

After Don Lemon Totally Misinterprets This Stunning Statistic About Black Parenthood, This Panel Sets The Record Straight - Atlanta Blackstar | Authoring | Scoop.it
Video by Comedy Central
Louise Malbon-Reddix's insight:

 Government statistics say that seventy-two percent (72%) of black babies are born to unmarried mothers today. Some say the cause is:

-       a good man is hard to find nowadays

-        the disappearance of shotgun marriages

-       discrimination caused blacks' current problem

-        overly generous federal welfare benefits

-       decline in the marriage ability of black men due to a shortage of jobs for less educated men

-       the fertility rates for married women declined

Grief Is An Act Of Love!

Grief Is An Act Of Love! | Authoring | Scoop.it
Louise Malbon-Reddix's insight:

Yes it is!!! And now you all know why I wrote this book. It was out of the great love that I shared with such a beautiful man!!! After being torn down and ripped apart by a man I had 3 beautiful children with and would give my life for; Less Malbon, Lawrence Malbon, and Leslie Malbon, all of that grief and pain from was lifted! How do you say? Well, in a moment from being accepted completely and totally, shortcomings and all; warts and all, some would say, loved unconditionally by Richard Reddix Sr. Trust me, I tell the whole raw story in my book. It is more than a love story!!! It tells about the grief process, not only from loosing him, but from loosing a whole bunch of my brothers and sisters and my mom and my dads!!! It tells about sibling rivalry and so much more!!

When Mothers Go To Praying!!!

Dear Sir, you say you were just doing your job, and feel you did the right thing... It even seems like things came out in your favor. It is my belief, that prayer changes things!!!! And I feel that, like I am mothers everywhere are praying!!! And oohhh, when the mothers go to praying, Lord have mercy on us, mmmmhhh, Lord have mercy on our children, mmmmhhhh, and Dear Lord, make a way where it seems like there is no way!!! Please Jesus!!! Things have got to change. God when we have sacrificed, and gone without, and did the very best we could with what we had to work with, make away. Lord, we made clothes, when we didn't have no money. We kept lights off to keep the bills down, any little thing we could do, we did Lord. We followed the rules, as best we could. We worked 2 & sometimes 3 jobs Lord to provide for our children. We had hoped and dreams for our children to have it better than we did Lord. We taught them right from wrong, and was watching over them toe hopefully ensure they did the right thing. Lord have mercy on us. Please Jesus. To have one taken away senselessly, Lord we beg for your mercy, and your grace, to help us to endure, even now and at this hour. Stretch forth your divine hand and show us your grace and your mercy. Prop us up on every leaning side, comfort and strengthen us, at this hour!!! Lord sometimes things do get by, but we are grateful that you are a God who never slumbers or sleeps!! And that it only seems like they got by, but we know Lord, they did not get away! We ask you Lord for strength, patience and endurance, and comfort as we go through. We thank you Lord for even this day and the comfort and assurance given in your word, Psalm 56: 8 Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book? 9 When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know; for God is for me. 10 In God will I praise his word: in the Lord will I praise his word. 11 In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me. 12 Thy vows are upon me, O God: I will render praises unto thee. We submit this our request for justice in this case. We thank you in advance oh Lord our strength and redeemer , asking it all in Jesus' Name Amen Now, I invite mothers everywhere to pray. It may seem like it is slow, but the mothers of old told me like this; "Let the Lord do His Work now!!!" Please mothers, There is a special place in Jesus' heart for mothers. One of the last things He did from the cross was the taking care of His mother. I say again, when mothers go to praying!!! And we are in the Season of Advent, let us fast and pray!!! Standing In Our Anointment to pray for our children, families and this world. Change is already happening!!!

Journeying Through Widowhood - Hoping To Help Make It A Little Easier For You!!!

Journeying Through Widowhood - Hoping To Help Make It A Little Easier For You!!! | Authoring | Scoop.it
Louise Malbon-Reddix's insight:

Journeying Through Widowhood is a chapter in this book. Now here is a live update to that process. I was married to a wonderful man, as you al know. And I hope that through my writing, you have come to know and love him!!! Beautiful soul!!! Well if you have read my book, you know that I was his # 2 Wife. The # 2 Wife I feel has a hard way to go in some instances. I so have a diffferent picture and understand ing of this #2 wife syndrome. It is not a good place at times. Can you imagine that is coming up on the 5th anniversary of his death, and I have not been able to settle his estate?

I am preparing to go back to court again, and this is what I am seeking to understand at present,

Why an Administrator of an Estate has
• Failed to properly secure and insure the assets of the estate, and allowed it to suffer this loss
• Has allowed the diminishment of this estate through inadequate record keeping, and failing to inform heirs of the same.
• Has delayed settlement of the estate unnecessarily by not following a Court Order
• Appears to have improperly delegated decisions to others who have no authority over this estate;
• To know why there seems to be negligence in the administration of this estate even after the full and fundamental facts of this estate have been discovered and painfully discussed over and over again, causing more and more enmity between all parties of this estate.

Never imagined it would be this hard or unfair! And in that it has been so for me, I pray that everyone prepares and put their final affairs in proper order!!! Noone needs to be called out of their name and treated rudely or disrespected due to selfish reasons. In my case, that of being the second wife who clearly in this case only wants to give credence to the life of a man who struggled so hard in this life to make it! He was an honest, fair and kind man. Made it through this life without the benefit of a High School Diploma! Supported himself, his first wife, and her children and his one natural son. Please know I am the first to admit that a father is a father even when he is not your father, if you know what I mean. This father, Richard Reddix Sr. worked multiple jobs and took in foster children to help put all of his children and grandchildren through school.

You don't have to go through everything yourself, you can glean and understand what happened through someone's example!!! And I saw the evidence of this man's struggle with my own eyes!!! When you look back over the miles he travelled in his life; I just wnat his affairs to be concluded in the same way that he lived his life; fair and honest.

Everyone please take it from me, now the poster child for unpreparedness; please take the time out to get your affairs in order. A little less grief for you t have to get through!!!


Stand In Your Anointment - This Too Shall Pass - Don't Throw Your Pearls To Swine was written to anyone going through the grief and loss process. Especially if you are seeking to understand what happened who did it and why? So much in this book about growth and development and relationships of all kinds from brother to sister to husband and wife to second wife and stepchildren, and so much more about the widow and taboos associated with widowhood, and so much more! Well worth your time. for you or others you may know going through!!! Looking to help somebody as I pass along this way, so my own living will not be in vain!! Louise Malbon-Reddix

A Matter of the Heart 8-8-08 | Authoring | Scoop.it
Louise Malbon-Reddix's insight:

My story for true is contained in this picture. My oh My!!! Where is  the time going? August 8th came a left quietly for some. But for me it was a matter of the heart.  Six, yes hard to believe; but 6 years ago on 8-08, my bleoved and I stole away to the Court House in PG County and were married.  That precious man - Richard Reddix Sr, did not want to wait any longer! And to make me happy, we still  had a "Church Wedding, called a White Wedding by some on September 13th, 2008. 

Mr. Reddix is no longer with me/us - But I will feel him in my heart Forever!!! Gone, still loved and definitely not forgotten!!!

 

To help with the pain of such a tragic loss, I wrote a book!  Would love your support with it!  Not just for me, but to help others who like me have to go through a process all of a sudden without warning to get through!! Key word THROUGH!!!

 

Would love your support and I so thank you.

Louise Malbon-Reddix's curator insight, September 24, 2014 11:40 AM


 

 

 

 

 

A woman's strength is just about how much she can handle before she breaks. It is also about how much she must handle after she breaks. Yes, this is one of the reasons for writing Stand In Your Anointment -This Too Shall Pass!!! Could almost say it nails it. Broken for sure I was at the sudden and heart wrenching loss of my beloved Richard Reddix Sr . I wouldn't wish such on anyone!!! Heartache, and heartbreak. You can't reach it to rub. Pills can't numb it . Mind playing tricks on you. People are watching. The world won't stop and let you lay down for a minute. Bills still due. Still have to work. No where to go to get away from the pain. Can't hide the pain. All you can do is endure through it. Thank God for family and friends. The pain does not go away. You learn somehow to live with it. It simply just takes time for you to adjust and find a new "normal" as you learn somewhere in this processing of your grief to - Stand In Your Anointment - This To Shall Pass!!!


Going through or know someone who is? My book has chapters in it in there in grief, loss and recovery. Growth and development and how grief is handled so differently depending on where you are when the process begins and so much more! So, have you bought my Book?

Single? Not By Choice!

Single? Not By Choice! | Authoring | Scoop.it
Louise Malbon-Reddix's insight:

Single, there was a time when I was in love with being single.  You know the time, when you are fine and you know it!!! Marriage who? Marriage, when? Marriage, me? Huhhh couldn't be!!!!  Single, free as a bird and loving it!

 

But one day in a very youthful moment, it did happen.  I was blessed with three beautiful children from that union.  And a whole lot of learning; just because you have book learning, it doesn't mean that  you have any common sense at all. But if I knew then what I know now as the saying goes!!!  Described in a little more detail in my book  - Stand In Your Anointment - This Too Shall Pass - in  Chapter Two Going and Growing Through the Pain  Dealing with the Deaths - pages 27 and 28.  Here it was single as an aggravated choice. 

 

 

Single?  Widow? Although they really mean the same thing, I prefer Widow.  It just gives a little more definition to your status at this time.  Although there are younger widows out there, for me it it means that I am an older woman. Not only that, society as a whole, looks on this status with a softer look so to speak; rather than being single at my age.  Back a few years, the title for such a person was an Old Maid. So yes, Widow, separated from your loved one suddenly in my case by the finality of death.  That is to say single, but not by choice.  

 

The sequalae that follows this one has not been fun.  By no means!!! So let me stop right here and let you all know that I, as embarassing as it is to say it,  am the poster child for unreadiness in the death of a loved one. And I want to ask you to stop whatever it is you are doing, and  Have that conversation and make the necessary changes that you need to make now.  NOW, while you have the time to talk and discuss and decide what it is that you want for yourself or your loved one.  Before the time comes that you cannot speak for yourselves.  At another writing, I will detail for you all of the things that one goes through when all I's are not dotted or T's crossed, at such a time. 

 

Reluctantly now at nearly five years since Richard Reddix Sr. has been gone, my head knows that I am "single", but my heart still feels his presence and his absense at the same time, if you know what I mean. 

 

As they say, a picture says a thousand words; single, but not by choice.

The Map Is Not The Territory!!!

The Map Is Not The Territory!!! | Authoring | Scoop.it
Louise Malbon-Reddix's insight:

Let me say at the outset of this, I LOVE each and every one of you, family and friends a like. If you are in Nursing, you just plain old have to be a caring person. And really, every nurse, including moi should take better care of themselves too.The Map Is Not the Territory is clearly what I got out of this article: http://www.nursetogether.com/no-nurse-is-an-atheist

 

I am so grateful here for my training in NLP, i.e. The Map Is Not The Territory!!!

The map is not the territory is the idea that the way we see the world isn’t reality itself. We don’t respond to reality. We respond to our internalized map of reality. How we represent things are our interpretations. Interpretations may or may not be accurate.

Increasing Choices
Let us just look at a real map for a moment. We have all had that experience, yes? And I will confess right here and now, that I am not that good at following maps. I am the first one to get lost. I am going to say it is the map, not me, chuckle, chuckle!!! As things change so rapidly, really, all maps are inaccurate to some extent. A map of a street would need to be done daily to be accurate. A map is a summary of what we deem to be the important features.

If we have inadequate maps, we don’t see all our choices. Our lan-guage reveals the maps and models we use to guide our behavior. Communication is how we explain the world to others and ourselves.

As human beings, we process information about the territory around us, and that through our own, each and everyone of our own five senses.

The NLP term for this is Representational Systems. When people communicate, they translate their experience into words. Lan-guage is a representation of our sensory representations, a map of another map. Words have no built in meaning. Words only have meaning in that they trigger sensory representations in a speaker or listener.
