Freedom to Be
What does freedom mean to you? Freedom is the ability to choose for myself no matter what the choices are in the moment. Let’s get real. That’s not reality. Even though on the surface we have the freedom to choose, we still filter every decision through our experiences, social expectations, and our current circumstances. That…
Being a human #119 Do one thing that scares you at least once a week. It will keep you from getting bored and stagnated. Be brave. Be enterprising. Be bold.
Being a human #117 Find truth and stand on it. Don’t let anyone push you off. Don’t sugar coat it. Don’t make excuses for it. Don’t water it down. Often the truth is not liked by the masses. Just because a lie is popular doesn’t make it true. Truth is unchanged by time or opinion.
What happens when you throw caution to the wind and watch it blow away? Do that thing you have been thinking about forever. Jump off that what if train. Maybe you fall face first in the dirt. Maybe you don’t. One thing I know for sure, if you don’t jump you will never know.
Here Comes a New Begining
Walk in to 2021 with a clear plan. Do not carry with you any resentment or pain of the past. If you owe me, forget it, we’re square. I never loan, only give and don’t expect a repayment. If you wronged me, I forgave you already. If you’re angry with me, I’ve let it go.…

I ❤️ Mail
I love real mail. Paper and stamps and cards and words… It takes time to mail a real letter. Few humans take the time to send cards or letters. Even at Christmas time there is an overwhelming feeling that sending cards is not a priority anymore. It is truly a dying art. I wonder if…
Where Are you From?
I am from everywhere and no where. I spent a quarter of my life in Texas, a quarter of my life in England and half of my life in Florida. I also consider myself fairly well traveled. When someone asks me where I am from mostly I say Florida since it feels most like home.…
Traditionally I’m Over It
I want to skip the holiday this week. That would be selfish. Americans love their USA holidays. It’s so much stress and does not fit into my focused simple life plan. My children don’t like traditional Thanksgiving food. Often we serve alternative meals. This year we are, for the first time, going to a restaurant…
