As I watched my Mom die from brain cancer, I came to the realization that not much matters in life.
It matters not the size of your house, the make of your car, awards received, the day’s stock performance, a celebrity’s reality, all the material goods you’ve collected over the years, whether you work as a CEO or a stock clerk, making it into the Ivy’s, the ability to excel at sports or academia…or whether you are a herbivore or carnivore (I had to get that in there!). The list could go on and on, but you get the point.
My Mom’s suffering, during those long and painful days, taught me life’s most important lesson. It is not what we have that measures our greatness but how we treat one another.
I am a firm believer that an opinion is synonymous with judgement and I strive to keep my opinion to only those things that really matter.

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy”.
– Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
