This blogging thing can be a head game. I have a tendency to want to write something profound, important, BIG.

Big ideas. Big inspiration. The Bible in one page.

Real success is probably something smaller.

People want to feel that they are are not alone. That their fears are shared. That they are understood. That their failures are not permanent. That things are going to be alright. Maybe even that things will get better.

I will make you a deal. I will get out there today and do my damndest. I will be calm, caring and empathetic with everyone I encounter. The work I do will be thoughtful, the best work I can do. I will use my time wisely. I will be a better version of me today than I was yesterday.

You do the same.

Then we can get together oh, around Thanksgiving, and give thanks.

About how much better things are.
