"Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire."
"Are you kidding me?! That's 50 cents a hair!" Pluggers rarely get their money's worth at the barber shop.
I’ve given up social media for the New Year and am trying to make friends outside Facebook while applying the same principles.
Every day, I walk down the street and tell passersby what I’ve eaten, how I feel, what I did the night before, and what I will do tomorrow. Then I give them pictures of my family, my dog, and me gardening. I also listen to their conversations and tell them I love them.
And it works. I already have three people following me… two police officers and a psychiatrist.

--Julia Pierpont Day: Julia Pierpont, the wife of the governor of the New Virginia after the Civil War, is credited with the origins of Decoration Day which became Memorial Day; in 1866, Ms. Pierpont attended to the graves of Union soldiers because they were being neglected and other groups picked up the idea to care for Confederate graves; the idea evolved to an annual event of attending to the graves of fallen soldiers and called it Decoration Day.
--Missing Children's Day: an annual event to commemorate the anniversary of when 6-year-old Etan Patz disappeared on his way from the bus to school on May 25, 1979; the event raises awareness of the kids still missing and educates towards policies to keep our kids safe.
