Headphones are simultaneously one of the most antisocial and social things! Antisocial because they say, "shut up and leave me alone" but also social as they don't let my conversations and entertainment bother others. I love and loathe to in equal parts 👌🏼

It is alarming how much of America is disposable, plastic, and packaged. Single servings carefully sealed in plastic containers. Plates and cutlery that are disposable.

We quickly project how we would feel in a situation onto others without considering their personality, story, and ambition.
It is tough being an introvert in a world that seems very extroverted.
Our lives are constantly telling our kids what is important, what they should value, and how to live their lives. I'm hopeful that what I talk to them about is consistent with my actions.
