Labor Day Clean Slate

On this Labor day I have finally had time to play catch up.  I finished mowing the lawn - started it last week.  Finished a home improvement project.  Finished an online application process I started weeks ago. And even finished writing a media plan for a new client.

I know you are supposed to relax and eat BBQ on a day like today but that just wasn't in the plans.  Instead of filling my belly I wanted to empty my mind of a few thoughts that I have had so that I can start this week with a clean slate - so to speak.

 I've not posted them are shared with them anyone in particular, but here ya go.. in no particular order:

* If you are hired - or elected - to do a job and then while on the job those rules change you have a choice to make.  Do the job or quit.  That is what ethical people do.  They don't make a public specialist of themselves.

* It's sickening how some people who appear to have everything going for them throw it all the way like Jared Fogal or Josh Dugger.

* Gosh I'm glad it's football season again... but when my team looses, life goes on.  I don't follow things like that with blind faith or allegiance any longer and take pity on those who do.

* I love animals - we currently only have a cat - but please stop calling your pets your children.  It's insulting.  It's demeaning to humans.  #humanlivesmattermore

* Quit sharing stuff like, share if you love Jesus.  How about instead make the post itself compelling and share-worthy and let God handle the rest.

* All lives matter.  From the thug on the street corner to the newborn baby.  Regardless of color, race or any other factor you want to throw in.  Jesus died for them too.

* Irregardless is NOT A Word...  I'm amazed and who I hear use it.  Stop it!  It makes you sound ignorant.

* I refuse to go along with you and allow you to categorize yourself by a single characteristic.  You are so much more than that.

* I don't think Donald Trump is the answer... but I know who is.

* It's the message. Period.  If the method isn't to your liking then so what.  Shut up and move on.

* Not everybody wins.  We must learn or relearn how to win with grace and lose with more grace.

...well that's all for now.  Happy Labor Day and have a blessed week!
