For Discussion

The thought popped into my mind to start a conversation because sometimes there's nothing better than a healthy discussion on a good topic. In this case, it is based on a statement from an overheard commercial for the Michael Baisden show in which he touts the joys of being accepted the way you are.  That begged the question, in my mind, wouldn't one want people in their life that not only accepted them the way they were, but challenged them to become better?  What are your thoughts?

The Holiday season and additional musings on human connections

It's holiday time!!! That this can among the most (if not THE most) hectic times of year can pretty much be left unsaid. On top of that, the focus can easily become more on the gifts given than the moments spent with loved ones.  Here's some food for thought to keep in mind while hunting for gifts and visiting family over the next few days:

"The real basis for connection comes from the parts of us that we cannot measure or define".
-Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

The dollars spent on the gifts that you'll give and receive are nothing in comparison to the worth of the people behind them.
