"I cannot trust a man to control others who cannot control himself."

Robert E. Lee


Saw this one and immediately it had a double meaning for me. The first was ripped out of today's headlines....Anthony Weiner....yes, exactly how can men be trusted to control (or govern) others if they cannot control themselves? Indeed.

The second was solely on the topic of self control that the quote refers to. It's what we have to rely upon over and over again, usually daily, to make our journey with SP work to our advantage. Eventually, through regular repetition, we learn how to do it well. We're finally able to control ourselves, which should give us more confidence, which may in turn allow us to move into positions where we can guide others, even helping one person to find the same joy through SP or another plan that will change their lives in such a positive, healthy way.


Had a great day, it was busy, which is always good. Got quite a bit done. It rained for a while in the afternoon and is supposed to cool off.
