Opening Our Hearts and Minds

In the days we live in its helpful to have a global perspective on what is going on with your friends and neighbors. We all have our own struggles and opinions but being isolated from the struggles and opinions of others does no one good. Our life experience informs us about how to live and what to think but that gives you a narrow view of life. Our own experience is not the experience of others.

We owe it to the world to be sympathetic, empathetic and understanding. Yes it’s easier said than done but it can happen if we work hard at it. Opening our hearts and minds can do great good. It takes courage and intention to do so. Something this writer needs to do better at.

A Ramble About Home

Home is where you lay your head and hang your hat. Having a roof over your head gives you a place to be yourself. I could also say it’s where your tribe is whether it be by blood or by friendship. Your home is also a place that changes as you age. Some folks need a home where you feel secure and safe. Home is something everyone needs.

Older In The Office

I’m almost 50 and age should be just a number but in an office it can issue. Older workers have lots of experience that can benefit the whole company.

It’s interesting that some older workers see lots of people come and go over time. I know that from personal experience.

Personally I try to keep up with the culture so that I might be relevant and relatable to my younger co-workers and other relationships.

Being older in the office doesn’t mean being stuffy it can mean that little can phase you which can be beneficial to all.

Juneteenth, A Celebration Of Freedom

Juneteenth, also known as Juneteenth Independence Day or Freedom Day, is an American holiday that commemorates the June 19, 1865, announcement of the abolition of slavery in the U.S. state of Texas, and more generally the emancipation of enslaved African Americans throughout the former Confederate States of America.

Remember this time in history and realize that everyone should be free to live their lives as they wish.
