Do we really operate with Full Border Protection?
A few weeks ago I had an offer to dine with the Prime Minister.
I considered this a privilege, regardless of my political views, I have the upmost respect for the position of running our country.
The meeting never took place, due to the terrible tragedies that had taken place with the week before with the acts of terrorism he had been holed up with other members of our Government determined to get to the bottom of the situation and get justice for the victims.
I did attend the dinner anyway with the new guest speaker being the Minister for Immigration, Scott Morrison.
Now, I am not going to go into full details of his speech but one thing that I must say that I agree with him was the statement, ‘Full Border Protection’
STOP – for those of you that have strong opinions on this, my belief in Full Border Protection has nothing to do with stopping the boats, nor does it in fact have anything to do with Australia.
It is my own personal borders that I am protecting, who and what I am influenced by and whom I spend my time with.
There is a common statement that you are at the level of the 5 people that you spent the most time with and whilst I am at times a stubborn child, I do spent 70% of my time around my family. The other time is generally spent about 25% with people that I want to speak with, whose values I support and whose influence is important to me.
I am very protective of my time, you see I only have 24 hours in the day.
I choose to keep my mind free from the opinions of others on irrelevant information that has no value to me.
I couldn’t care about what celebrities are up too, (unless it is Vin Desal, for more information see my book, Confident You!) what they choose to do with their lives, times and body is truly up to them.
Same goes for the mummy wars, I have no emotional attachment to what you do with your nipples, how you dress your baby, what type pf school your planing on sending them too, or what you spend your time doing with them.
I truly wish that mums would clearly f#@k off, keep their opinions to themselves and stop trying to validate their choices whilst making someone else feel bad about there’s.
So I protect my borders, I protect who I let into my life and the lives of my children.
Don’t come to me with your judgements on others, I am not your high-school girlfriend, unless you are in my VSSC (Various Shit Sorting Circles) then your opinion will be noted and discarded.
People will always say, ‘well I am entitled to an opinion’ and yes you are, but I am entitled to think that your opinion is crap and I don’t have to listen to it.
It has been years since I have read the paper, I don’t watch the news. I figure that if something is relevant to me, someone, usually my husband or assistant will let me know.
I also am aware that much of the facts that you see in the news are an opinion of the journalist writing them.
I know there is some really shit things happening in the world, I get it. I don’t dwell on it, I spend my time writing to inspire others or working on a project that can help raise money to help with the things that I can have an impact on.
Being able to help small business owners grow there businesses, helping them to have better relationships, create more jobs, buy from more suppliers and allow them to help more clients. Whilst I know that I am not solving world peace or curing cancer how do I know that some of my clients don’t have products or services that will help in some way to do these things in the end.
So protect your borders from the naysayers, time sucking vampires, ignorant opinionists and others that bring you down.
These are the people that really should be sent packing from your life straight away. So don’t feel guilty about it. It is not personal, it is just ‘Full Border Protection’.
