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

People are exhausting.

How is it that you give some people a challenge and they respond positively. They grab a hold, step up, and do things that surprise you and them. Then others fight the challenge, constantly, and willfully.

Nothing comes easily.

Do you ever wonder just how many people have influenced you? I met with someone today who for several years had a significant influence in my life.

Influence is a tricky thing. While we want to keep having it in our kids lives, you never know if it is effective or where they will end up. However, knowing the influence my parents had on me I keep on talking about my values and desire for them and their lives.

We change laws and rules even though they don't necessarily modify people's behavior. Real change happens when we're able to change the hearts and minds of people.

Music shared me and defined an enormous part of who I am and what I believe. It isn't just emotion and musical genius, it can inform your worldview and direct your path. Choose carefully the influences you let into your consciousness.

If you use your phone to remind you of things you have to do you will be productive but spend a lot of time on your phone! It feels like a catch-22 but I'm getting plenty done 🤣

How is it possible the 2 children from the same parents, in the same house can be so very, very different?

You don't need a lot of friends, just a handful of exceptional ones. I do 👌🏼
