Random Strategy

I use to play chess with my dad all the time. Then I had a friend that was a boy and learned a life lesson from my father. After playing a few games with my friend and winning, I started losing to make him feel better. I went inside to get more lemonade when my father said, ‘Just because he’s losing doesn’t mean you need to play, ‘I’m weak and you’re a big strong man,’ card. He’s losing because he doesn’t know how to strategize. Don’t enable his ego. Win so he can learn from his mistakes.’


Random Word: Strategy

    1. He was but what I learned most from was honesty. I tell people, ‘He may have done bad things but he wasn’t a bad man.’ But those are some things that are for another story another time.

    1. No not super human although I think I would look awesome with a blue iridescent cape πŸ™‚ It consists of me prioritizing a lot, being slow at my day job, and helpful support from my family πŸ™‚ Thank you so much for reading.

      1. So true! Keep sharing the good! I try to keep from passing down the bad things but sometimes it creeps up….Like I have this thing about my daughter using paper towels. And if she uses two well watch out! πŸ˜‚ I’ve told her I know it’s silly but I grew up that way and the feeling of frustration I feel when I hear the rip of the paper towel is tangible. It’s really weird. I’m working on it. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

      2. Not weird…ok well not to me, I have a thing about the toilet paper rolls. Instead of finishing what’s left on the role they grab another and set it on the counter. I’m working on it too πŸ˜‚ I’m glad I’m not the only mom with paper product issues πŸ™‚
