Lessons learned from my 111-year-old great-grandmother

Lessons learned from my 111-year-old great-grandmother

November 7, 2019

My great grandmother, Downing Jett Kay, was born on November 23, 1907 which means she is just a few weeks shy of being 112 years old! That makes Gramma D, as she is colloquially addressed, the oldest person in the state of Maryland, the 18th oldest person in the United States, and the 65th oldest person in the world (if we’re trusting Wikipedia).

Positive mindset: Your perception is reality

September 19, 2019

Perception is reality. You may have heard this age-old expression. A huge portion of our lives is comprised of many interactions.

Make learning a lifestyle with the 5-hour rule

September 12, 2019

As we move into the busy months of fall, fresh off a summer of fun, the days get shorter and schedules get more chaotic. Coming home from a long day of work and other responsibilities can mean relief. You’ve made it through another day, and now it’s time to veg out in front of the TV. A few deep breaths later and you’re more than just a few episodes into the latest Netflix Original.
