This I’ve Learned

when I was growing up it was an unwritten fashion rule not to wear white after Labor Day. And I don’t think I did. When I think about it today, it makes me chuckle how we catered to such thinking. Fashion has changed. I mean, think about it, if wearing jeans with big holes in the knees is the latest fashion, why should anyone feel uncomfortable wearing beautiful white slacks or white shoes.

When we’re not satisfied with a maintenance or service that someone did for us, it feels like the right thing to do is tell them about it. But too often when we are satisfied or feel someone did a great job, we don’t think to tell them. Of course, we love it when someone shows us appreciation. Perhaps we need to be more sensitive to the opportunity to do the same. Think about it.
