Accept The Compliment

Sip_of_GIN_5719
Tuesday, May 7, 2019 There you stand, frozen with nothing to say. You heard the words, but either they didn't register or you assumed it was for someone else. Why would someone be talking to you? So you don't react. You hear the words again, and it's unmistakable: a direct compliment to you. Not a surface compliment of "good job" or "you look amazi...

  Tuesday, April 30, 2019 Drink water. Are you thirsty? Drink water. Hungry? Start with water. Tired? Cranky? Confused? It may be that you're somewhat dehydrated.

Show Me The Way

Tuesday, April 23, 2019 Catherine watched the bicycle mechanic every time she was in the shop. He would attach the bike to a workstand and diagnose what needed to be fixed.
