"ALIVE"

Karl Bradley ·
At this time during a pandemic we find ourselves physically distanced & isolated from one another. However, it's been exciting to see so many creative ways to stay socially connected.

Leadership ABC's

A = Attitude One of 2 things within your control; attitude and effort! Attitude is everything, pick a good one.

They also share that the best way to achieve joy is by serving others. Amazing stuff!! Thank you for your post and sharing Karl.

Some reminders...

Karl Bradley ·

One of the adults looks over at me and says; "I stopped watching this show years ago, I already know most of that stuff." đŸ¤£ Even if you know all that stuff already, it's still nice to have a reminder every once in a while! Here goes... There's never been another person like you on the planet, and there won't ever be another person like you. Your core...
