I based my topic around this quote:”We will not be distracted by comparison, if we are captivate with purpose“. Today, I wish to share some tidy tidbits from my talk.

Don’t Let It Happen To You!

Dear Readers, I hope this post finds you and your family well, and  in a good place. The New Year opened with grim news and mass hysteria for immigrants and minorities in America.

“Today Is The Yesterday You Worried About”

Worrywart. Neurotic. Anxious. OAD. Hypochondriac. Apprehensive. Uneasy. A bundle of nerves. Nebbish. Mess. Fusspot. Basket case. Chances are you and I have worn one or more of these labels.
