The thing about today’s over-sexed culture is you cannot compliment a beautiful women for just being beautiful without her and your friends thinking you are up to no good. Apparently, noticing beauty or expressing love in today’s world links it to sex. The world thinks the greatest expression of love is sex. Ugh. Don’t get me started. Some knuckle heads even like to say that David and Jonathan’s love mentioned in scripture was sex related. SMH. What a crock of poo – but I’ll address that in another blog.
I’ll be the first to admit that I appreciate beautiful women, but I’m also the first to admit I’m a prude. Beautiful women on a sunny day in Seattle sometimes means less clothing which takes my appreciation down several steps, well, many steps actually. I’m not impressed by how much skin you can show no matter how hot you are. That is what I experienced today while at my business meeting at Canyon’s Restaurant.
I was running a little late but still met my boss a few minutes prior to our client arriving. As I sat down I mentioned to him, “wow, there are some beautiful girls here.” He awkwardly chuckled.
The client arrived and we spent about an hour talking about some very important things. At one point I thought to myself, ‘here I am listening to this client and not distracted by these beautiful girls’.
The meeting ended and I looked at my boss and commented on how much I had learned about their inner workings. This is a huge company with three very, very large divisions and the hour I spent listening to what was said will pay huge dividends in the long run.
Someday, post-Ritalin, I’ll know what my demeanor should be like and what true focus is. In the past I thought I was focusing but really didn’t have anything to compare it to. Now I have some sort of guideline that I can strive for post meds.
The reading is still hit and miss. I read about 100 pages today and although that’s quite an accomplishment I didn’t retain much of what I read. My feeling is that will come in a few days.
Closing out today’s Thankful Thursday with a picture of me and my beautiful wife. After all these years she still has it. And that means I still got it. 🙂
