#JusJoJan 2018. January 14th Ultimatum

#JusJoJan Ultimatum

I hope that you are enjoying my posts from Linda’s Just Jot it January as much as I am enjoying writing them.

Here is today’s prompt word.

Your prompt for January 14th, 2018, brought to you by a new-to-me blogger, Itinerary Planner, is “Ultimatum.” Use it any way you’d like in your post. And make sure you visit Itinerary Planner at her blog, “Travel Itineraries: Travel the World for Less” (sounds good to me!) to read her post and say hi! Here’s her link:  https://traveltinerary.com/

Ultimatum. This is a pretty serious word, isn’t it?  It is like a laying down of the law, so to speak. “If you don’t buck up your ideas matey, then you can clear off and find somewhere else to live”, kind of thing. It makes me think of errant grown up children and husbands (I know, sometimes they seem one and the same thing)!

Ultimatum is reaching the end of the line, or the end of your tether, whichever is more appropriate;  something has got to give before the situation blows up. However, I do think that issuing an ultimatum can work in a positive way. I know I have been in a situation where I have had to ‘lay it on the line’ and demand that things change, and sometimes they have!

  1. Sometimes it’s the only way to move forward in life… even if the ultimatum ends up with a choice being made that you were really hoping against.

  2. Brilliant post Sis, you have nailed it! Not all ultimatums are reasonable, some come for unreasonable reasons or circumstances… Looks like I am ranting sorry . Love your post.🌹🌹

  3. It’s funny, isn’t it? Ultimatums are a last resort, and I often feel like when I think of one, I should just walk away. But I have gone through with a few and they’ve worked. Tricky, judgment and intuition must play a hand.

Thank you for popping in, I'd love to hear your thoughts
