Interesting article about blogging in the Boulder County Business Report. No comments about it have been posted online until mine today. What do you think, why do so few people post their thoughts when it is now so easy to do? Is this a good or a bad thing?

“Without courage you cannot practice the other virtues.” Maya Angelou, who celebrated her 80th birthday last month. She served as the keynote presenter for the American Society on Aging conference, held in late March in Washington, D.C.

So why don’t we call the Serenity Prayer the Serenity, Courage, and Wisdom prayer?

God grant me the courage to change the things I can change,
The serenity to accept those I cannot change,
And the wisdom to know the difference.
But, God grant me the courage not to give up on what I think is
right even though I think it is hopeless.

Chester Nimitz adaptation as quoted by Nell Wing in Grateful to Have Been There.

Don’t expect everyone you meet to like or appreciate you, your ideas, or even your person: Accept and “know thyself,” and be yourself. Eleanor Roosevelt’s advice to a small group of women students at Kenuka College, from Nell Wing’s Grateful to Have Been There memoir.
