>As Professor Higgins says in ‘My Fair Lady, ‘Why can’t a woman be more like a man?’ That is a sexist version of what so many wish, that the people they deal with would be different than they are; less annoying, less hard to understand, less odd in the way they do things.
How often is that our first reaction because it is so much easier to desire that than to actually figure out, and implement, how we can change instead.
Not just because we have areas we would like to change, but also so we have a better reaction to those around us. So everyone else isn’t an annoyance, but is just another person to try to understand, like we hope they would try to understand us.

>Day 6 of Vacation – I figure I am in a kayak or hammock now!
Oh, this one is so hard! I succeed at this at a ratio of 1 per 20. that is one
day out of 20 maybe i am at peace with myself. How often are you at peace
with yourself, and how do you go about achieving it?
