Due to a change in lunch plans today I wound up eating a cheeseburger for lunch as well as for dinner yesterday.
Today’s Daily Challenge
Try another perspective: Read a different newspaper or visit a news website that’s new to you.
We used to have limited options for getting news, which helped to provide a common bond between people. Now the Internet allows people to personalize their news and information and filter out what they don’t want to learn about. That can block out new ideas or limit their ability to embrace change. By checking out something that’s out of your comfort zone, it may help you see things from another person’s perspective or open up your mind to new things you may want to learn more about.
I’m trying a new perspective… I’m wearing new glasses.
They arrived this morning. I like them. It’s yet to be seen how my eyes respond to my personal measurement of my PD.
Taking The Show On The Road
I’m bugging out of town this afternoon. Not to stress myself too greatly I’ll pull a Atlanta (North) to Valdosta leg tonight, and a Valdosta to Clearwater leg tomorrow.
There will, should, be a short blog tomorrow. 🙂
