Are You an Eagle or a Chicken?

Who do you think you are?

     Color inside the lines.
     Play by the rules.

Have You Seen the Pictures?

Since the world started quarantining humans, a miraculous thing has happened.  Evidence of human impact on the Earth is making itself known.

Just look at these NASA images of the air quality over Wuhan, China in January and February 2019 vs the quarantine in 2020.  Amazing.

Isn’t that a little dramatic, Naomi?

No, I’m deadly serious.

This past week two people with low self-mastery collided, resulting in one of these people dying.

In the middle of...

Respond vs React

Have you ever noticed that emergency personnel are called first responders, not first reactors?  Why is that significant?  The terms respond and react are often used interchangeably.  However, there is a distinct difference between responding to a problem and reacting to a...
