I’m Scared…My Friends Are In Charge

Posted by georgiannasaysjustdoyou on June 10, 2013


One day, I woke up, and my friends were in charge… A high school classmate is my city mayor, another friend is a CEO, many other friends own their own companies… Other classmates are my kids teachers.

I am officially scared. This is not because I don’t have confidence in their ability to lead or do a competent job. It is because our parachutes are slowly retiring, or are otherwise not around. It is the beginning of the shift to the next generation. I will own that depending on your age, this may not apply anymore or yet. For those of us 30-50ish, this is our current reality. This is when you remember how you were treated BY others (yes way back in high school) and even more importantly, you reflect on how YOU treated others.

If you have ever been to a high school reunion, you know that people hold on to stuff for a VERY LONG TIME. It is often deep and very personal. If the experience is good, good will often continue to follow. If not, then…let’s just say that the stuff I overheard while in the bathroom stall at my last reunion, tells me that it won’t be good.

No matter what stage you are in on the course of your life, how you treat people matters. And who knows, one day those people you went to school with will be in charge.

My thought for the day: be kind. It is always worth it.

I don’t have the answers, but I always have thoughts. Won’t you share yours?
