Life is screaming past, friends. Lots of good, fun things have happened!
When I try to think of all of the things that have happened in the past 2 months, I am overwhelmed to the point of inaction. Except... well, what comes to mind is how people function.
Brian and I are not big planners. We never have been. This is why many of the events which have taken place in the past have occurred without a lot of forewarning. There are certain characteristics that don't usually get a lot of praise these days. Among them:
Nobody likes to feel judged.
Don't we all just want to be loved?
I admit, I'm a little sensitive when it comes to criticism. In my mind, anything can be criticized. Anything can be seen in a negative light. Why choose to criticize?
I guess some people like to talk about ideas, some people like to talk about people and some people like to talk about what other people do wrong.... But... If it's a problem, why not tell the offending person? To me, it seems pretty simple. The most complicated part of it is being open to a difficult conversation. Okay, so most normal people avoid difficult conversations.
And I'm not immune. I judge people. I just really try not to.
So, how 'bout Thanksgiving, huh? Wasn't that great?
