Writing Stuff, Part 1: Monday Blogs

#MidYearResolutions I love this time of year. It’s mid-year. Half-way through 2020 and if you haven’t noticed, 2020 hasn’t exactly been perfect. Readers know I love New Year’s Resolutions. I love making big, bold proclamations of amazing things I’m about to do, and then… Continue Reading “Writing Stuff, Part 1: Monday Blogs”

Dad Stuff, Part 2: Journal Choices

I love journaling. I love a good journal. But not actually. Journaling stresses me out. I read about why it’s so great. Good for clearing the mind. Get the thoughts out of the brain and onto paper. I read how studies show people who… Continue Reading “Dad Stuff, Part 2: Journal Choices”

The Joy of Breathing from The Moth StorySLAM

If you’ll take the 6-minutes to watch this, please know this …this happened when I was 35 years old. I’m 46-years-old, now. And at the end I act like all at once I figured everything out. You might think for the past 11-years I’ve… Continue Reading “The Joy of Breathing from The Moth StorySLAM”

I Won.

Before you roll your eyes, this is not a humble brag. This isn’t about my ego. Admittedly, at one point in my life (earlier this week?), a Blog entry like this would’ve been all about my ego and showing-off. No. This is me talking… Continue Reading “I Won.”

Stuff to Read at Other Places

We all know Millennials are ruining everything. They’re freaks who don’t buy homes, don’t get married, don’t watch network TV, they don’t have real jobs, and they don’t have cars. But, actually, they do have cars. Maybe only 75% of them have cars, which… Continue Reading “Stuff to Read at Other Places”

I Love My Nextdoor Neighbors and my iPhone 8, Not Sure About WordPress’s New Editor

Somebody came up to me at Church and asked, “has your life become boring? I haven’t seen any new Blogs. What gives?” See!?!?!?  People like reading about my shoes, coffee, my hair, and my obsession with headphones. And then someone called me based on… Continue Reading “I Love My Nextdoor Neighbors and my iPhone 8, Not Sure About WordPress’s New Editor”

Great Reading – The Stories We Tell Ourselves

Every Monday, for more than twenty years, a guy named Roy Williams has sent a memo to his friends, fans, clients, and subscribers called the Monday Morning Memo.  Every Monday! Period. He never misses. The “memo” is interesting. Sometimes it applies to what I’m doing.… Continue Reading “Great Reading – The Stories We Tell Ourselves”

An Inspiring Poem

I made a pretty drastic change in my life, recently, and feel inspired. This poem has helped me know I made the right decision, or to say it better, if I didn’t make the right decision, I’m not going to worry about it. Or,… Continue Reading “An Inspiring Poem”

Beginning or Resuming?

I’m feelin’ like my old self. Like anything is possible and I’m king of the world. I like this quote (even I don’t entirely understand it)… “Begin. Keep on beginning. Nibble on everything. Take a hike. Teach yourself to whistle. Lie. The older you… Continue Reading “Beginning or Resuming?”

Memories or Life Tips

My Uncle Jerry taught me many things in life, but something quite random he showed me makes an almost daily impact on me. My Blog readers know I’m obsessed about coffee. I don’t even have a drip coffee maker in my house – I… Continue Reading “Memories or Life Tips”
