This cold snap stinks. I didn't go outside all day yesterday, except to the dump where I took the bags of poop riddled items. Scrubbed a couple of bathrooms down, cooked a lot, and sat with Marcela and Deysi, yapping away the afternoon. I can happily live with a lack of drama.
I can't wait to read The Influentials. Marcela and I talked about it, as she's a leader also, she's such a friendly person, succeeding hugely at work due to her ability to make everyone feel so good about themselves. Plus she has the uncanny, and admirable, ability to remember everyone's face and name that she's ever met in her 20 years here in our county.
Sarah and I, already applying the checklist to her on Friday, no wonder we are such emotionally happy campers. This subtitle, One American in ten tells the other nine how to vote, where to eat and what to buy. They are The Influentials, blew us both away, but it makes so much sense. Everyone is searching for meaning in their lives, wondering how to be significant, and to make their lives count for something.
I'm glad that I found my calling, I wouldn't recommend this to everyone, it takes a peculiar person to live as we do, but it is rewarding and gives me meaning.
