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”

Learning Something Every Day

Inspiration can strike at any time. Today it happened for me at the dry-cleaner just after 7:30 a.m. when I picked up my shirts and a suit. My dry cleaner had a little newspaper sitting there by the cash register. At first I laughed. I… Continue Reading “Learning Something Every Day”

Living Deliberately. Blogging Intentionally.

There’s this concept called “living deliberately.” It means not letting life just sorta happen to you, but instead, controlling everything that happens to you (that you can). Things like when you wake up, if you exercise, whether you enjoy your job and control your… Continue Reading “Living Deliberately. Blogging Intentionally.”
