Notes from Steve

I thought my hair looked darker when I looked into the mirror this morning. Instantly I moved to “because of my mega vitamin intake and massive exercise, I must be aging backwards.” I’m halfway expecting my wrinkles and sore joints to be replaced with smooth skin and a bounce in...

Notes from Steve

Accountability is not fun. I was having dinner with friends the other night, and I told them of my grand idea to pay someone to make sure I’m doing my exercise and food diary, and if I’m not, then they hold me accountable. (Ideally they’d come over to my house...

Amy's Reflections

Don't Make Assumptions. Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama.
