The universe is change; our life is what our thoughts make it.
A strange phenomenon occurring in the universe around Australia, their is great indecision around, everything seems to be 50/50; first we have an election that had all the bookies saying it will be very close; this therefore means a society that is split; split in every sense of the word; values; principles; taxes and the people who will lead us: there was no clear leader presented....or party..... what is that telling us about our present status? indecision; This means we will have an election sooner than later.... because a divided house will fall.
The AFL final that is a draw...not that I care really accept that I do like to know who wins and loses these main events.... fancy not having a sudden death outcome, like a 5th quarter, extra time.... goal kicks something rather than repeat the game...that seems like a huge money spinner for the AFL........it is time to rethink the rule about a drawn game......
Then we have the Midwifery legislation - Determination for collaborative care; which has the midwifery profession up in arms talking, lobbying at great lengths; however I do not believe for one moment that this is 50/50 it is more like 70/30; 70 for 30 against; The profession is unanimously agreed that the wording is not correct. However what splits them is whether to accept something that is not quite right or throw the whole thing out and not have it at all for possibly years to come.
An interesting point is that it is now in the hands of the parliamentarians... who are equally as indecisive.... in the mean time; women, midwives, homebirth midwives, independent midwives, consumer groups are all pitting themselves against each other, saying some horrible things...making accusations to each other who's right/wrong ... it is all very sad.... in many instances bullying each other to get the perceived upper hand just as bad as the politicians... and at the end of the day we will all lose...... WOMEN & MIDWIVES and the AMA is clapping knowing they are the true winners here!
Something is in the air!
How is it that there can be such diverse beliefs and each thinking there's is the only right way.......the Homebirth/independent contingent is the loudest complainant shouting the loudest saying we are destroying midwifery...but have never given it a go..... in the survey that I have conducted the numbers are 20:4 in favour of accepting rather than losing everything and the counting continues; If we use the election as a marker to what people believe we can see that life does go on... it is how you go forward to make it work is the real task....... what ever happens it is evident that there is a clear divide between midwives; and I firmly believe this is because not all midwives work within their scope of practice;
As for the future of midwifery "together we stand, divided we fall" that is up to us!
Interesting that the Gospel states; (eg. Mark 3:25: If a country divides itself into groups which fight each other, that country will fall apart". Never a truer word spoken.
PLEASE EVEN IF YOU HAVE A DIFFERENT POINT OF VIEW BE KIND TO EACH OTHER;
