White Cane Safety Day
When I was growing up my Mama's best friend's husband was blind and we saw them a lot. So I grew up thinking a white cane was normal, I saw how helpful it was.

Conflict Resolution Day
Conflict is "my thing" and by that I mean it's my biggest fear trigger. In my early 30's I had to finally deal with this issue.  My fear of conflict was causing more conflict, manifesting in people pleasing, in short I was miserable. Through counseling I read a book. I studied and applied the principles and to this day I consider it to be one of the most life changing books I have ever read and absorbed.
Do I like conflict now?  NOPE.  But do I avoid it? NOPE.
Conflict is a slippery slope.  It can ruin your own emotional, and spiritual, health. It can, and will, ruin your personal relationships as well as your professional ones.
If you avoid conflict by either escaping or attacking I highly encourage you to address that avoidance and learn how to face conflict in healthy ways.

If you need help in resolving conflict or learning how to resolve conflict, here is a list of organizations that offer services.
