There is no part of our journey for wasting

protocol
Retired our old American Flag yesterday. Only afterwards did i learn the flag should have been folded properly. Additionally, it is customary to say the Pledge of Allegiance or the National Anthem.

There is no part of our journey for wasting

In our youth and even as an older adult in our immaturity, we will inevitably waste time on things that had little to zero value.

A few of these “time-wasted” experiences are helpful.

They help us see how consistently doing good and decent daily habits and rituals propel us forward.

As Bob Dylan said, “He who is not busy being born, is busy dying.”

We did not rush the American Flag burning yesterday. While it isn’t called for, i kept my right hand over my heart until there was nothing left. This was time well wasted.

Tailgater grace

Disney University
Yesterday. Joy to the world is so appropriate. Every day. All day.

Tailgater grace?

Yes.

On the two-lane road behind Disney University, a driver began tailgating my car.

Younger versions of me had varying degrees of impatience, anger, retaliation, etc.

Those pangs are still mildly felt occasionally.

They surfaced for an instant yesterday and in an instant, they evaporated.

Pulled into the subdivision right-hand turning lane and let the tailgater pass.

Eased back onto the highway and life was instantly peaceful again.

Have heard rave reviews from Faculty about Tim. This is next week’s speaker benchmark opportunity; however, this one is a parents only event.

 

Prepping for adulthood can be draining and it can also be the opposite of draining.

Moving from adult-child mindset to adult-adult mindset.

The rewards are worth the (tireless) effort.

There’s an unreasonable and unnecessary fear of “running out”

personal sketch of Florida home
Years ago, a neighbor had note cards made for us as a gift, featuring a hand-drawn image of our home.

 

Have had a box of these note cards – with a hand-drawn sketch of our home – for about 20 years.

i rarely use them because they’re so special and unique.

There’s an unreasonable and unnecessary fear of “running out” of these cards.

To which the me of 2018 says, “So what?”

Enclosing a cash gratuity with a thank you note for a couple who help us out twice a month.

Can’t wait to run out of these cards.
