Another post where I realize I’m the one with challenges

I’m beginning to realize that my life is really just a series of long held beliefs colliding with reality.  Sometimes the collisions are messy, but if I shut up long enough, good things usually come from the wreckage.

I ran across this article today and I just couldn’t pass it up.  Okay, in the spirit of full disclosure, this article was dumped in my cyber-lap via my news feed on Facebook (yes, I’m one of those relics who still uses FB) and me being me (remember me not being able to recognize an …
