ranting & raving about stuff that gets me on my high horse or rips my nightie with more than a question or two thrown in because I don't understand the world around me

A little bit of listening, attention to detail and a some (not much) organisation go a long way towards achievement.

If you want to achieve your goals you're going to have to give something up. It could be sitting on the couch, or spending money on something you enjoy. Whatever it is, goals don't come cheap or easy when they're worth achieving, and achievement lasts forever unlike the cost which is merely temporary.

We use the phrase, "once in a lifetime opportunity" to freely. Many things we label as, once in a lifetime, impact is to sick a degree it becomes something we return to regularly.

For example, traveling the world. A one off trip gets described as a once in a lifetime opportunity when what happens is you begin to prioritise and travel more often. Similarly a job opportunity comes along and is considered, once in a lifetime. Then more career opportunities arise.

In some ways life is Long time and there will be plenty of incredible opportunities. Love in such a manner you can embrace unique opportunities to grow your world view and live a full and varied love that contributes back into your community.

I'm pretty much always doing something or going somewhere so whenever my phone dings, I see someone, or someone starts talking I'm betting interrupted 🙄

A year from now you will wish you had started today.

It’s the action, not the fruit of the action, that’s important. You have to do the right thing. It may not be in your power, may not be in your time, that there’ll be any fruit. But that doesn’t mean you stop doing the right thing. You may never know what results come from your action. But if you do nothing, there will be no result. Mahatma Gandhi

I'll take it as a parenting win when a consequence kicks in, they whine loudly for 3 seconds then quietly accept the situation.

Why all someone about possible dates for a meeting because you want them to attend, then schedule it when they're unavailable? Seems a little passive aggressive or like you're wanting to send a not so subtle message to them.

Phones constantly demand our attention and others expect we will be slavishly devoted to whatever notification pops up in front of us.

Can God be in a moment of we aren't in a moment?
