Saturday Morning Recap
April 16-22, 2017
Things I’m reading
Quite a bit actually. In preparation for the trip to Ethiopia my wife and I are about to embark on, I have been reading up on the country, its customs, people, traditions, laws, etc…
Certainly is eye-opening.
What I’m watching
Things that are keeping me busy
Writing and reaching out to other authors. The beautiful thing about blogging is the opportunity to meet other people it presents. Because I write for two different blogs (this one and comicbasics.com) I have been able to connect with people from all facets of life. If you’ve ever thought about blogging and are unsure about doing it, do it just for the opportunity to meet a lot of cool people.
What I’m listening to
Others. With all the political back and forth going on in the world, I found myself in more than one conversation talking about politics. More specifically, we discussed refugees, immigration, what it means to be Canadian, helping vs enabling, etc…
Things got heated but that’s where the conversation tends to become interesting.
Best article I read online
David delves into the depths of the “hard parts” of life. He talks about what it takes to not only get through them but rise above them too. If you’re into exercising in any way, you’ll appreciate his squat analogy in breaking down what the “hard part” actually is.
Take 5 minutes to pop over there and give it a read.
Quote I’m digging
It’s an all-time favorite of mine and for good reason.
“Change happens when the pain of staying the same is greater than the pain of change.”
I don’t think I need to say more.
And there we go. The Saturday Morning Recap all in one tiny package.
