Things I Learned Today / Saturday, July 25, 2021

This I learned today…

I am most gratified when I’m helping make other people a star, when I’m shown appreciation, and when I’m affirmed with genuine praise or affection. I confirmed that about myself.

Does it help to know your “love language”? I think so. It help you understand why another person frustrates you or why you’re not feeling fulfilled at work. Think about it.

I took Dramamine before I flew, and Good Lawd! Slept every minute of both flights until the plane came to a complete stop. And since you have to wear a mask, you can get away with sleeping with your mouth open and drooling! Glorious.

If I have shampoo or liquid soap on a plane, it’s going to explode. Zippy bags for the win! Kept it contained at least.

It was 63 degrees this morning in Connecticut with a cool breeze. It was 96 in Memphis with 90% humidity. Rude.

Have you lived (or are you living) the kind of life whereby you’ve dreamed about what you want and you’re actively working to put it all in place? Did you design your life, then make it happen? I think that’s one of the keys to being happy in life.

I want ice cream.

I hope tomorrow is a quiet day of rest and contentment.

That’s all. We learn every day, don’t we?
