Seriously

One of the many things my lovely bride of 37 years (Moe) has taught me is the dichotomous power of seriousness.  

On one hand, it is extremely important that we approach our work and endeavors with serious attention and effort.  To do less is a direct challenge to our integrity.  And, less than serious investment of mental, physical, and psycho-emotional effort in this regard indicates to others a disconnect between what is spoken and what is enacted.  

We can try to fake it, but it just doesn’t work.

On the flip side, Moe has gently coached me over the years to understand the power of NOT taking ourselves too seriously.  Being able to laugh at ourselves and forgive ourselves is a necessary tool in keeping balance and sanity. 

Seriously.
