The mark of an adult, in my opinion, is the ability to admit when one has made a mistake and accept the consequences.
On Friday, Olympic hopeful Sha’Carri Richardson spoke to The Today Show, She apologized for drug use that led to her one month suspension from competing in the trials for this month’s Olympics.
I admire Ms. Richardson for accepting her punishment with grace and maturity. While I understand that she was grieving for her mother, what she did was wrong. Instead of taking a tantrum (unlike a certain former President) in public, she put on her big girl pants, and let the chips fall where they may.
It is a lesson we can all learn, regardless of how old or young we are.
My Girls: A Lifetime with Carrie and Debbie by Todd Fisher: When Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds departed this world two years ago, no one knew them better than their brother and son. The book is a love letter to them by one of the people who knew and loved them best.
The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah: A young girl growing up in the wilds of Alaska learns some hard truths about life, love and marriage.
The premise of the book is that the fictionalized version of you know who has decided to put his Presidential Archive together while he is still in office. The premise of the book is a series of satirical and fictional interviews and recordings taking the reader from his early days in Queens to his current position as President Of The United States.
Written in the same voice that Anthony Atamanuik uses on The President Show, this book is hilarious. It also helps the reader, at least from my perspective, to release any tension or anxiety they may have about you know who.
