There is one thing I know for sure ~ Mel Robins and her 5 second rule of decision making is spot on.
Here are a few other things I know to be true ~
I know that there are people who can’t stand you if you cuss like a trucker, but will also look the other way when they have friends who abuse subordinates or the people in their own homes.
I know that there are people who are really rude, but feel entitled to be because of their job title.
I know that there are people who will talk about your life, but have never had a conversation with you.
I know that there are people who will abuse you, but act like a baby lamb in the presence of others.
I know that no matter what we plan for in the future, we can’t forget about right now, today ~ where our feet are.
I know that some of the nicest people in the world are covered in tattoos, save kittens and offer the shirt off their back, no matter what they are going through ~ while some of the more horrible humans are those who go to church every week, sit on PTO committees and judge EVERYone while being mean to orphans.
I love it when people are kind for no reason.
I love it when someone walks into a room, only to be treated well by others, even if they don’t look the same.
I love it when people are honest ~ even when the conversation is difficult, they are just honest ’cause they’re not manipulative.
I love it when people are living their truth just because there is no other way for them. They don’t get consumed with trying to please others. Others aren’t trying to change them.
The beautiful truth of life is ~ we get to decide what life looks like, but part of that is ~ we have to work on it.
Life is work ~ that doesn’t mean that it’s all hard or all easy. It’s a craft.
This art of living is a master class of being ~ it doesn’t mean wealthy, or super popular or even famous.
Some of the most masterful people on earth will never been known by the general population.
Humans of New York does an exquisite job of finding those people.
These are a few of my favorite things ~ the stuff of conversation during … happy hour.
Who cares about platitudes ~ not me.
In peace and deeper conversations,
