Name that tune

A couple of weeks ago, I was telling the boys about a game show that we had growing up (nothing like 1970’s TV, right?) called “Name That Tune.”  I explained the premise of the show that clues would be given to the contestants and they bartered against one another to

You should want the challenge!

Life doesn’t come easy and sometimes we don’t get to choose how it unfolds.  There are going to be times when we wish it was easier.  We are going to want the layout to look different.  But if you had the choice between the easy and the difficult, which would

Turn Around

I saw a quote last night that read something like, “If you continue to stare at the closed-door in front of you, then you usually do not see the open door that just opened up behind you.”  And then, I started thinking about how many times do the flight attendants

We don’t like to be challenged

We like comfortable.  We like what we know.  We don’t like to be challenged.  We don’t like doing something we aren’t good at.  The truth is that no one grows UNTIL we are challenged.  When the “A’s” come too easily in school, the guidance counselors bump us up into the
