OUT OF THE BOXX … (Current Columns)

When Mr. Right is Really Mr. Wrong …
Posted: 12/30/2003 at 12:28:37 PM

Sometimes the boxxes we get trapped in really belong to someone else but we take them on as our own. For example, do you know someone who is in a relationship where one person feels so much less important than the other?

If we could suspend the parents
Posted: 12/16/2003 at 11:35:57 AM

Last week, Linda Rener’s column discussed her "shock" about 6-year-olds being suspended from school for inappropriate behavior and how schools have gone overboard with "no tolerance" policies. Several months ago, she wrote about a 5-year-old having a temper tantrum in public and how the mother should have cradled this acting-out child in her arms to show her an alternative way of behaving.

The ‘Oh, so perfect boxx’???
Posted: 9/29/2003 at 9:50:04 AM

Perfectionism is a way of life for some. Personally, if I’m having brain surgery, you can bet I want a surgeon who doesn’t perform under the work ethic of "ok, that’s ‘good enough!’" He or she had better be attentive to each and every meticulous detail, as far as I’m concerned!

Emptiness. That feeling that leaves you feeling heavy, without energy, directionless, lost, or questioning your own value in life.

 


The Union...
Posted: 8/25/2003 at 12:14:58 PM

Emptiness. That feeling that leaves you feeling heavy, without energy, directionless, lost, or questioning your own value in life. What causes some people to find themselves in the Box of Emptiness? I’m not really sure, but I can tell you that I’ve been there and it almost cost me my life.

 


Boxxing with the LPN/RN Issue
Posted: 7/7/2003 at 3:48:09 PM

I have been reading the ongoing LPN versus RN issues discussed in this paper over the last several weeks and I’d like to throw in an "Out of the Boxx" opinion.
