So the last few weeks I've been on this journey.  It's been a difficult one and probably one out of the two most difficult journey's I've been on in my life

I'm trying to figure out the lesson from the word "fairness"

Fairness is defined as "the quality of making judgments that are free from discrimination"

So what if someone is not capable of being fair.  What if someone is bought through a pocket full of cash or a political favor. 

How are we to teach a young adult that when we as adults live in the same world and struggle with this very same word which is difficult for us to understand but still have to teach some young adult how to deal with this word or the lack of this word.

As I ponder through my thoughts of the last several weeks I have learned one valuable lesson.  That in a world that we may perceive as unfair because we believe the person making the judgement call is not free from discrimination or able to make a quality decision because of some unknown reason, that if we let our discouragement destroy our hope then we have only failed ourselves over what's fair and what is not fair.

We need to go back to our thought pattern and change our attitude.  Pick up the pieces and get ready to try again.  It's easy to fail, it's easy to give up, it's easy to not want to try again because we think we'll lose again and that the system is unfair.  But if we just change our thoughts to say "one more try", then we've already won the battle over "fairness"

In a world that changes day in and day out, we need to look at the take away of everything we do.  Whether we believe it is fair or unfair, we have to teach these young adults that it's ok to have to try one more time.  That not everything in life is going to be fair but if you look at your attitude and you take away the value of the lesson then you have defeated the "Fairness" game.

A point to ponder on my friends...
