And those we see as different. We don’t acceptRead more

SOCS: Questioning Levels

High or low? Which way do you fly? Low, under the radar, may be the way to go Or reach for the sky, determination on high High or low? What persona do you create?

Imperfect Relationship

“When you stop expecting people to be perfect, you can like them for who they are.”   ~Donald Miller~ Mom likes me.
