So What Did I learn Today?

Today I learned that most college-age students of today really can still be influenced when it comes to their moral direction. You just have to guide them to a different conclusion. That came about in an ethics class this evening as my eloquent and skillful instructor played devil's advocate to some pretty controversial topics - abortion and gay marriage. It was rather fascinating to watch and renewed my faith in their willingness to realize that their decisions really can impact others - which matters (particularly to those "others"). really isn't all about them. It is all about ME!

I learned that my decision to forego a wonderful week in Puerto Rico with my sister was probably the right decision. I have been home in beautiful weather as she sits in the rain! So sorry sis but as usual, I am being responsible.

Finally, I learned that no matter how much I take off the plate, it continues to be refilled by others. What is that about and how do I get it under control? Perhaps by first taking ownership of the plate. No more food goes on until I have eaten all those veggies already on it! Sounds like an excellent diet plan to me!

  1. You are wise beyond your years. Maybe the two of us should plan a trip to Puerto Rico--and let's pick a week when it ISN'T raining!! :)
