You know what- I'm on this life reboot phase and Im going to share with you what I'm learning along the way. You see, we don't often learn everything we need to know to create an excellent life from our parents no matter how hard they try-  sometimes certain tools are left out of the tool box of life skills.  No one's fault really, it's a lifelong quest- gathering the stones of wisdom along the way- building a strong foundation and structure for our lives from the collected stones, timber and forged metal.  I found a really important piece I was missing this morning, courtesy of a friend and some serious curiosity on my part. We'll call  the posts 'An Excellent Life' and I promise Ill dig up some wisdom and good reminders that will serve us well.  Welcome to the conversation and feel free to comment.
