I have a lot to do. I’m thinking about it now as I write this.
It’s a mixture of bad advice growing up and a few too many times where I felt that I was putting other people out with my presence.
The problem was that I was seeing my life as a movie.

Once you let go of the notion that only certain people in certain spots in your life can be designated as family members, the world feels more inclusive than ever before.
To a person with children, that sentence can actually be pretty terrifying.
Just as you can convince yourself that life is miserable, you can do the opposite.
Worrying never did anything for me. All it did was make the moments before uncertainty worse by filling me with impending dread.
A family is made up of many people. While no member should be raised above others to define you all, no member should hidden in the shadows either.
What followed was a ten minute game of angry Twister that left us with an awful haircut and an even more awful memory.
