Congress is finally starting to look like the people they represent

Wow! It is so good to see a Congress that is starting to look like the people they represent! But as I watch all the news about it, I can’t help but think, “Won’t it really be great one day when this will be the norm, and it is no big deal.”

Because really, isn’t . . . → Read More: Congress is finally starting to look like the people they represent

My New Year’s Wish

For this New Year, I wish that we could all see the beauty in ourselves. I wish that we could all realize that we are enough, just the way we are now. And I wish that we could all realize that it is okay to acknowledge the good in us, just like it is okay . . . → Read More: My New Year’s Wish

Do what you say you are going to do

Do what you say you are going to do. At least don’t say what you are going to do until you know you can do it.

There are people who rely on you to do what you say you are going to do. You may think that you are doing someone a favor by saying . . . → Read More: Do what you say you are going to do

Customer Service

I don’t want to cast aspersions on all customer service people; I have run into some who are actually quite good. But I have too many times run into people who don’t seem to know what “customer service” even means. I believe the problem starts with companies who want to say that they take care . . . → Read More: Customer Service

Common decency is common decency

I am learning, though slowly. Someone who doesn’t really know me accused me of being negative on social media the other day. I thought about it for a bit, and then unfriended her. It was a political post I commented on, and frankly, right now, I see very little to be positive about in politics.

Lesson learned

I made a mistake yesterday that cost me a couple hundred dollars – oops! The tire pressure light went on in my car the night before, so I planned on calling the mechanic yesterday. I checked the tires both that night and yesterday morning, and could find nothing wrong with any of them. So I . . . → Read More: Lesson learned

Letting go

I am doing the best I can, and sometimes I feel that’s not very good. I persevere, because it’s either that or give up, and I don’t think I am a quitter.

That does bring up another issue, however. Sometimes is is smarter to let go than to hang on. I used to think that . . . → Read More: Letting go

We are all the same

We are all one! Please don’t let someone tell you it is us against them. We are all in this together, and we will sink or swim together.

Think about it – if the only way for someone to win is to get us to turn against each other, then has he really won?

We . . . → Read More: We are all the same

I am tired of political ads

I have to admit that I am getting very tired of all these political ads, from all sides. I have said this before; I notice that others are saying it also. Perhaps we need to change to a system where one is not allowed to speak of what their opponent is going to do, but . . . → Read More: I am tired of political ads

Please vote

I really wish that everyone felt their voice counted and would vote. I understand why some people don’t feel this way. I understand that there are people out there who feel that winning is the only object, and don’t care if they have to lie, cheat, or steal votes to win. And the only way . . . → Read More: Please vote
