Notes from Steve

I’m all in on Christmas this year. However, I’m not planning on decorating the outside of the house though, unless they make orange and red lights that convey a mid-century modern vibe. I would consider going caroling, and I’m up for any jingle jam as long as they serve nog....

Notes from Steve

I did this whirlwind trip out to California with Dr. Hurt to meet with a strategic partner on Tuesday to come back bright and early on Wednesday. I’m not a fan of traveling. But … I persevered and made it all right. As I look back – there were a...

I am even thankful for the negative things that have made me a stronger and better person. ~ Joanna Krupa Nancy Gabrielson used to always say “Be the better person” and it truly stuck with me. This is probably the phrase that Shaila hears the most at our house regardless...

Steve's Notes

A year ago today my large cat died. He wasn’t doing well for a while, and it was a blessing – but it still hurt. I was a pallbearer in one of my best friend’s mom’s funeral a week ago today. I got to see all of my good friends,...

Notes from Steve

Empathy: the ability to understand and share the feelings of another. I preach this concept, but I don’t think I’m very good at practicing the art of empathy. Lately I’ve been thinking “ok, when you say something as a lesson or correction, you’re a buzzkill, and not very empathetic.” An...
