My friend was taking about their eighty something year old mother, whom still lives alone, had drawn up water for the approaching hurricane Florence, put her food on ice in a cooler and had a hurricane lamp for lighting. She ended up going several days without power. She was asked was she worried?? “No, she replied. I grew up harder than this!”

Dear Diary. Here’s My Thought For Today. Exposing Yourself……

“Exposing yourself to a variety of people is useless if you spend that time disagreeing with them and comforting yourself with your own opinions. Successful people recognize that every perspective provides an opportunity for growth.

A great way to keep an open mind is to try to glean at least one interesting or useful thing from every conversation you have”. ~ Travis Bradberry
