The Tiniest Achievements

Ever heard the classic conversation starter ‘If you had a fire, what would you save?’ Imagine if your legitimate answer was ‘well I did have a fire – and I lost it.’ That’s right; you had a fire and now you’re also a mood killer. You’re probably not feeling so good about yourself right now huh?

The Great Bedroom Fire of 2012, as it is fondly remembered today five years on (queue a fire emoji followed by several coloured hearts, you know the drill) wasn’t the biggest of fires in the grand scheme of things.

Let Me Ask You A Question – 3/25/17

Mark Twain – “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.”

Blog Networking: 3/24/17

I hold the same opinion as Jason over at Harsh Reality that operating a blog on WordPress is just like having a profile on Facebook or Twitter and should be used as such. The idea of interacting in order to get interaction changed my view of blogging forever.  So think about these links as a free opportunity to meet a new friend and expand your blog’s reach.

I have had people tell me that they enjoy listening to me tell stories and that I am a quality speaker.  I don’t see it and usually tear apart my speaking engagements with criticisms.

Let me ask you a question:

Is there something you do well for which people give you praise, but you don’t give yourself enough credit?  

 

Barn Windows

This is Kitcat Designs!
