Know yourself. Don't take trash, and know when the trash you're spewing is inconsistent with who you are.


On charity beginning at ‘home’

If you've been around long enough you know how the Sticky Notes Series works and today, the world gets 10 and I nil for having a sense of humor. The house-help left on Wednesday. Thursday found me scrubbing the kitchen cabinets. Friday, cleaning the accumulated pile of dust in the living room. Saturday, cleaning under... Continue Reading →

On dealing with realities of life…

 “Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired and success achieved”- Helen Keller.

On accepting that life is hard…

"God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference." - Reinhold Niebuhr After thought: My mind is fuzzy about this one, and like everything I write, this is just an opinion.
