I forgot to mention a the life changing book in my last post. First, the book to live by is Oh, the Places You'll Go! by Dr Suess. If there were ever a time to be told I was going to succeed and find my way, it would be now. In the least of expected places this nugget of treasure was found in Nest Paper Studio in Oxford, MS. It made the long journey back home with me as a reminder of that my ability to Go Places and the mountains I'll move. It is a worthwhile book to have in any book collection.
Have you ever read it? If you have then you know what I'm talking about. If you haven't then stop reading this and go find the book and read it!! You will have the confidence to move mountains and learn how to navigate slumps we hit in our life.
Dr Suess is an all time favorite of mine. Right next to Shel Silverstein. The books always have a treasure or two that seems to make more sense as an adult than it ever did as a kid. At least that is true for me.
"Will you succeed?
Yes! You will, indeed!
(98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed.)"

By the way, you never know what interesting people will cross your path in any given way. Or, what they can inspire in us. I had great conversations with two different men on my flights home. One offered me a job in Chicago and the other inspired a thought for a book. To the younger gentleman, good luck with school and send a postcard from Australia!
