Everything you see and hear here is not entirely important.
There are days where I am completely embarrassed by humanity, especially when it comes to American politics. There’s no rationality or reason, just emotion and weak generalizations. Doesn’t anyone want to think for themselves these days and not vomit whatever your neighbor, friend or colleague emailed you? Doesn’t anyone question information that is placed before them, or do you just automatically accept it because it suits your personal feelings or tastes? There are facts and fiction on both sides. Each party will spin facts to gain loyalty. I wish people would step back and take a look at things rationally. I think I hear David Hume laughing at me from the grave. In the meantime, the seat atop this fence is quite comfortable.
Confidence is often the single differentiator between people who get what they want and people who don’t. Those who think and believe they can do something — run a marathon, start an entrepreneurial venture, ask someone out (and have them say yes), win a competitive promotion, fit into their pre-pregnancy jeans, build a fun social circle, well… they do it.
