This week sucked. I had such high plans for the month of Oct. I still do have those plans and it will not change. However, the start has not gone according to plan and I need to make adjustments. In the past, I would simply stop trying when things did not go my way, but I am getting better at letting it go and moving on.
A few summers ago, I decided I did not want to continue with my current diet and decided to try the Vegan diet. Technically, the diet I found was a whole food plant based diet.

Previous to my current career, I was in leadership. I say I was in leadership, but the official title ranged anywhere from Supervisor to Manager. I am not a big fan of these titles, as they do not scream leadership to me. Leading people is more about heartbeats than they are about head counts. Supervisors supervise, managers manage, and leaders lead.
I mentioned a few months ago that I had taken a class with our local church around finances and the lessons that I learned. I decided to ask my wife what she thought was the most important lesson from that class. Here were her takeaways:
I made the observation the other day to a group discussing the challenges our youth face in this day and age. I mentioned that I believe that the biggest danger is rhetoric. In fact, I believe it is a war and one that we are not equipping our children to win, let alone ourselves.
