Or, will you even have one?
I know I won’t ever be famous (no thanks really). I won’t build the next piece of high tech. Create art, or design anything much. But I think I can make an impact in people’s lives. First and foremost, in my children’s. But even more than that.
I hope to teach my kids so many things I’ve started a list. They see it and ask what’s that? So I explain a little. Really, hopefully I live it well enough to teach by example. I believe, kids learn what they live. Being a good parent isn’t about leaving a legacy, don’t get that impression. It definitely comes from love!
I am lucky enough to manage a wonderful group of people. Some young first time employees, and some adults. I get to teach and train, and and in some cases guide them. But I also try to lead them. Setting an example about work ethic, and decision making. Maybe I can leave a mark, maybe not. Maybe someone will look back to when they worked for me and say they learned something…. At least it’s something to shoot for!
i think my neighbourhood deserves a sitcom because there’s
- me, the teen blogger
- a house with 8 nuns
- a drug dealer who drives a hummer
- a scottish man who only ever wears a kilt and mows his lawn at 3 am
- an elderly couple who drive everywhere on their lawn mower
- a peacock who has been roaming the neighbourhood for years and no one knows why or where it came from
I’d watch the shit outta that show
Goes into the category, “the shit you can’t make up”
