I am a Dad to two beautiful girls and a husband to a very gorgeous wife. I am very proud of my family and the way they give me so much support. I guess I do not need to win the lottery, I have already won.

RESPECT

I was always told that respect is earned and not given. I was also told that you must respect the position even if you don't respect the person. I guess this is a griping day for me. I looked up the word respect in the dictionary and it said it is a deference to a right, privileged position, or someone or something considered to have certain rights or privileges; proper acceptance or courtesy; acknowledgement; respect for a persons rights; to show respect for the flag; respect for the elderly. The condition of being esteemed or honored; to be held in respect.

Now the reason I wrote this is I have to give respect to a position and not the person. I have met some people who I respect them and there position and that is awesome. I have to many people that I have to report to in whom I do not respect them as a person. I do it because of there position over me. I am not sure if this is wrong but with everyday that goes on that respect keeps diminishing. It is a shame that a lot of the guys that are under this person is losing respect for this person too. I know when I get home I will miss a few of these guys but there is some I won't even say goodbye too. I guess the respect is being lost because of hearing "it is a team thing" and when we do things as a team this person is not there and I feel if it is a team thing the whole team should be there. It is coming down to "Do as I say and not as I do" and that is something I won't do when I become in charge of a group. Well enough griping for today and I am glad I have a place to vent and thanks for letting me do it. Have a great day.
