Peak of the Week- July 18,2018

Wednesday, July 18, 2018

Here are a few things that piqued my interest this week!! Happy Peak of the Week- it's all downhill from here!!

Hemingway- Plan Your Weekends- Interesting to know that Hemingway was as disciplined with his leisure time as he was with his writing! What do you think of his idea? I have to admit, I'm quite a planner. I like to have things planned out whether it is work related or free time!!

10 Ways to Have a Better Conversation- A friend shared this on Facebook. I am not good at small talk. I wish I were more like my dad and my sister. They can talk to anyone. I am much more reserved. I like to observe rather than be involved!!

Will Reeves- Note To Self-- Grab a tissue. I sure needed one. This is Christopher Reeves' son who lost both parents within 1 1/2 years of each other. He writes a "note to self" to his 13-year-old self after his parents die. He talks of it being his lowest point- There is nowhere to go but up. I remember sharing with my kids after they lost their dad that I've never read a biography of a person who has accomplished a great deal with his/her life who had not suffered a great deal at some point in life. I think this point is very true. When you have experienced the unimaginable. When you have fought back from "rock bottom" you gain a strength that is different than any other. It is really good to see this young man doing so well!!

I'm already looking forward to the weekend.  How about you??
