Sounds like it! Hopefully everything goes smoothly for you.
labor, human rights, environmental and anti-corruption standards fail to meet UN global impact principles. By indexing our investments to our values, we can affect real change because the reality is that money talks. Money makes the world go 'round.
I wish all children could be taught this way.
It's cliche, but we can be the change we wish to see in the world.
I'm having the worst time focusing. I wish I had that kind of energy. Hope you find balance soon.

Ugh, bad contrast there. I have a friend who went to the Himilayas recently and posted tons of pictures. Such an amazing and beautiful culture.
There's a marathon they hold there annually. The race has the distinction of being the course @ the highest elevation in the world. I thought of you running it.
Mindfulness in the prisons would be a tremendous thing! I think I read an article about meditation in prisons a long time ago. I suspect it would be so helpful there!
Business 101. Boys got haircuts. Going to have oldest prepare an online questionnaire for client. Theyll end up making a few hundred on this project if it goes right. Not bad for a 10 & 8 y.o. Beats lemonade stands.
I love these real world experiences and the education it provides
Want my children to understand money and to cultivate a healthy work ethic & provide them with relevant skills. Most importantly, I hope they walk in truth, live a godly life and cultivate wisdom, peace, love and joy.
They are so lucky to have you as their father!
Thank you. Parenting is hard work!
You are amazing
That sounds really cool!
Thanks for the positive feedback and hugs.
BF told me about this. I was truly speechless. It's a very sad country we live in. 😢
I see opportunity, Manda. I proposed a Kinderguardian course for our students. The idea was enthusiastically embraced. #inspired
That's great, Love! You are always so inspiring!
I'll have him draft a proposal, meet with her (in business attire), and come up with the architecture and wireframes based on her specs. Cool.
But the reason my mood dropped is that I found info online about X wife's bf. She claimed I was spreading slander about him. Now I have proof. Disgusted that she would lie to defend him and, in so doing, compromise the children's well-being
But, I've been vindicated and have proof that she lied! Maybe now people will question her alternate facts.
Ugh that sucks hard that she's not putting the kids first. I hope they are OK.
I wish she wasn't making this so hard for you.
Thanks for your support.
its healthier & more economical than eating out long-term. Food can be medicinal. Better to be proactive & eat balanced, plant based meals than to pay for decades of toxic ingestion when we are too old & frail to assume the cost of our indulgences.
It's engaging. I create order out of chaos. I'm usu managing 3 or 4 different processes at a time. Demands high executive functioning: organization, prioritizing, planning, etc
All of which is to say, cooking can be enjoyable.
BF is an amazing cook & I'm so thankful for it. He was supposed to teach me how this summer but it hasn't happened yet. I don't have much confidence in myself! What is your favorite thing to make?
Just decide what you want to eat and check online. You'll find many recipes.
Happy birthday, little Love!
Happy Happy Birthday, Love Jr! Hope you guys have a blast!
Thanks, Manda. He had a lot of fun and was sharing his experience with others. Thanks for the hugs, pandas.
drifted into rumination, I would cycle attention over and over back to the breath or body. Attention not on the content or emotional charge of thoughts, but to the process of observation and letting go.
Such that the experience of wandering, noticing, letting go, reorienting and returning to the object of focus was primary- the thoughts were not, the wandering was not, the effort was not central to the exercise.
Prepared a pasta meal
plus yoga to stretch muscles.
When walking, walk; when sitting, sit; when eating, eat. Cutting off mental elaboration- from coarse to subtle- again and again and again.
Once again, the perfect words. My new focus is living in the moment. No more past or future!
I strive for that too...it's so much more difficult than it sounds!
it's very difficult such that I do not set it as a goal, which would invite disappointment, self-criticism & self-doubt for failing to keep the mind on the present... even that statement is a future prediction.
Well there ya go. I need to relay that message to BF because he is trying to drill 'now' in my head. 😕
I'm hopeful for that for you guys as well!
Thanks. It's a step in the right direction for both of us.
