    WHAT IS IT?

     

    In 2003, Duke jolted academe with a report describing how its female students felt pressure to be “effortlessly perfect”: smart, accomplished, fit, beautiful and popular, all without visible effort. At Stanford, it’s called the Duck Syndrome. A duck appears to glide calmly across the water, while beneath the surface it frantically, relentlessly paddles.

     

     

    The perception of a perfect life

    "believes social media is a huge contributor to the misperception among students that peers aren’t also struggling."

     

    It's easy to see how this could contribute to a feeling of loneliness and helplessness.

     

     

     

    WHY I’M THINKING ABOUT DUCKS:

     

    Because Ellie is obsessed.

    Because I have suffered from both sides of effects of duck syndrome

     

    WHY TO FIGHT AGAINST IT:

     

    Inauthentic

    Isolating

    Exhausting

    False and based on lies from our enemy

    Discourages us and discourages others – lifts no one up

    Self-glorifying – when we fall prey to duck syndrome we are focused on impressing others, not necessarily on making an impression in the world

     

    HOW TO STOP THE SYNDROME:

     

    Be honest with your struggle

    Be honest with your struggle

    Let people see your mess

    Live to love and build up others – not yourself

    Acknowledge your hard work (and give yourself periods of rest to glide)

    Change your goals (go against perfectionistic thinking and other people’s opinions / strive to significance, not success)

    Guest: Missy Robertson from Duck Dynasty

    in Christianity

    Blessed, Blessed . . . Blessed: The Untold Story of Our Family's Fight to Love Hard, Stay Strong, and Keep the Faith When Life Can't Be Fixed


    Missy Robertson knew that marrying duck-hunting family man Jase Robertson would be an adventure . . . and she was up to the challenge. Their life together was good (even after Jase grew the beard). They had two children, worked hard to help build the thriving Duck Commander business, and loved and served God.

    But after a difficult and risky pregnancy, their daughter, Mia, was born with a cleft palate?a serious condition requiring multiple cranial and facial surgeries. As their baby struggled to breathe, and Missy and Jase faced a life that suddenly looked very different than the one they’d planned, they found themselves staring down one of life’s biggest questions: Where is God in all this pain?

    This is the Robertsons’ story. It’s for anyone scared and overwhelmed by a problem they can’t fix; anyone lost and searching for a way through. You’ll meet the young girl Mia who captured A&E’s Duck Dynasty viewers’ hearts, and learn how Missy and Jase have raised her and their sons to be faithful, confident, and secure in who they are. You’ll be inspired by how the Robertson family stuck by each other through the hardest times. And you’ll discover that God’s blessings are bigger than you ever dreamed?and there when you need them the most.

    "Celebrity Adopting Interracially: True Love or Hollywood Boost?"

    in Lifestyle

    Hollywood interracial adoptions are happening at an incredibly high rate. The world followed Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt as their families grew with new additions of interacial adopted siblings almost each year. Those children flourished, became America's surrogate families, and each of those children blended into their new surroundings comfortable in all parts of their identties. Subsequent celebrity adoptions followed, and in many of the cases, there are questionable factors involved that would have been investigated or screened much more closely if the celebrity pay rate were not involved. Specific to African-American adoptees in this adoption wave..such as in the case of Duck Dynasty stars Jep and Jessica Robertson adopting an African-American baby boy into their family...are the effects of being adopted into a different culture more detrimental or cultivating to the children?
