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

It is easy to see how people get into trouble. They observe others bending rules and taking advantage for personal gain . Then they see them get away with it over, and over, and over again. Eventually they feel they deserve at least a little of the same.

Recumbent Bikes

While I would consider and use this, I'm not sure it is quite ready for mainstream yet. Hills matter, and the cost is still prohibitive. But imagine a future without carbon emitting transport...

It seems to me we tend to do what we always did and rarely reflect on whether there is a better approach we could be taking. I suppose if we're happy with what we have then this isn't a bad thing, but I am off the view better never stops, not for me or my work.

Emotional awareness is perhaps the most little spoken of trait we need in leaders. They must respond to the tone of the team otherwise the team will not respond to them. Of course, without compassion emotional awareness is probably worthless!

Traveling Light

I'm not sure I could go this light, but it does look beautiful and fun 👌🏼

It is surprising the things that can really hurt us and how long would we take to heal. I have yet to meet someone who has not been hurt and who is immune to being hurt. I guess that hurt goes with living life, ambition, and love.

When you see someone you haven't seen in years do you avoid them and hope they recognise you and come say hi? Ignore them hoping they don't come talk to you? Or something else entirely? Personally I'd have to say it depends on the person! Some I want to see and talk to! Others, well I hope there is reason for me to move on quickly.

I have a very discombobulated approach to messaging. I like the features and functionality of WhatsApp and how it uses data (meaning it can be used 'free' when traveling. I'm just suspicious of Facebook so tend to stick to normal SMS when home. That kind of falls apart when I'm traveling...

It is Sunday morning and no doubt at this very moment thousands and thousands of people will be singing "praise and worship" songs "to" God. Surely this is the moment Jesus spoke to when he said, “but you ignore the more important aspects of the law—justice, mercy, and faith."
Matthew 23:23 NLT

Monday when we're on the world is when our actions should reflect goods character and nature. Surely that is there best kind of praise and worship.

When you have a favorite a piece of clothing there seems to be a disproportionally higher probability of spilling something in them! I observe this personally, and with my kids.
