What About Your Friends...

Will they stand their ground? Will they let you down? Of course, all friends will do both. The real question is what about your friends, are they good for you? “The people we surround ourselves with either raise or lower our standards. They either help us to become the best version of ourselves or encourage us to become lesser versions of ourselves. We become like our friends. No man becomes great on his own. No woman becomes great on her own. The people around them help to make them great. We all need people in our lives who raise our standards, remind us of our essential purpose, and challenge us to become the best version of ourselves.” ~ Matthew Kelly from ‘The Rhythm of Life’ Sooooo, th

Dear Mama

(My sister Jennifer) Happy birthday, Ma. I know I didn't do for the kids the way you would have, but I think they know that I love them. It hasn't been easy, but then again, I'm not you.

I would sequester myself from the outside world and just wallow in my own personal pool of underachievement. The last two birthdays have been increasingly better. I guess I just wanted to talk about the year that was. I don't know that I have anything really profound to say, this year has pretty much been a year of transition. The first of which was moving out of a treatment facility into the real world. I was really nervous because I didn’t have the same accountability as before. I moved in with a good friend

Experience is in the Lesson, Not the Outcome

Sooooo, I try to not let myself get too overwhelmed with situations that I don’t understand. I’m a processor so I pick things apart until I reach, what I believe to be, a logical and unbiased assessment that makes sense. I’m pretty darn good at it and my stress levels stay fairly low. I’m currently overwhelmed. My job (not my part-time server job) was essentially a gift. Other than serving, I knew no other truly viable work to do. Given my limited skill set I was blessed when a friend offered to employ me. I started writing blogs for their company website, it was actually really fun but not consistently necessary so I needed to do other stuff. I’m probably the least handy human on earth but
