Happy Birthday Daddy

Today would have been my Fathers 89th birthday.

I am so grateful for and terribly miss his adventurous spirit!

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

-William Ernest Henley

Life-User Controlled Content

Our lives - just like social media is USER CONTROLLED CONTENT.

If someone is not playing nice or a positive influence in your world. . . YOU control how much access they have to you and your life.

I will NEVER apologize for choosing to block negative, acidic people from access to me, my life & family.

Personally I choose to surround myself with my #PositivePosse
and my family & friends who build me up, tell me when I'm wrong, help me become a better person - and laugh with me everyday.

Where To Add Your Voice

“Once you can understand where the conversation is, who leads, the type of voices and the best place for you to add your voice, you can then start becoming a more active participant.” – Mitch Joel, president of Twist Image

It seems that there are a growing number of places to add your two cents - twitter, facebook, linkedin discussions, blog posts and comments, youtube. But where should you add your voice?

Most of you know by now that my preference is twitter. I feel connected to a larger conversation that is going on around me . . . kinda like a cocktail party, where you can meet and mingle with people you do and don't know.

I love the fact that I get to meet and learn from people on a global scale. Breaking news comes from friends who are there, I learn tips and tricks on how to be a better designer, I even have some great conversations about food, travel and where the best vacation spots are or the latest design trends.

With such a vast network of teachers, friends and mentors on twitter, I started to connect with them even more personally via Facebook and Linkedin and learned a very valuable lesson in where to add my voice and where to listen and learn.

Where do you add your voice?
