Simple things. | A Year of Discovery I’ve got an amazing friend who has been heavy on my heart lately. We’ve been friends for nearly my entire life, and as is to be expected as we get older and build our lives nearly 1,000 miles apart, it’s been a few weeks since we’ve been able to catch each other and talk. We’ve swapped texts and other brief messages as we always do, but there’s nothing quite like hearing the sound of a friends voice as you swap stories of life and love. Today we connected — albeit briefly — and I was filled with love and happiness and reminded just how blessed that I am to have people like her in my life. Over the course of our quick conversation she said to me, “… it seemed like I’ve had a lot of different friends over the years, and sometimes felt like I had no friends at all… but you were always my friend, and I think that’s how I made it through so well.”
For a number of reasons, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and reflecting over the past several weeks, and this piece has been a work in progress for a seemingly endless number of days now. Without sharing too much detail or background (and without really needing to), I’ve come up with this — a short start to a list of things I wish I had known sooner in life. Some of these would have served me well in high school, others are certainly better suited for my college self. And others are still things I find myself reflecting on and reminding myself of on a daily basis. 15 things I wish my 18 year old self would have known. | A Year of Discovery

Getting Intimate On Twitter? « Jeffbullas's Blog I have enjoyed and toyed with Twitter since I first signed up in December 2008, not expecting the journey to be so transformational.

Stop thinking, stop worrying, stop planning, and start writing y Stop thinking, stop worrying, stop planning, and start writing your online legacy Recently I’ve written about maintaining your blogging focus, I frequently advocate smart time management and why you should plan things out (even though sometimes the best plan is not having one), and a couple weeks ago I passionately shared my advocacy for the blogging platform as a means to (literally) “change your life“.
