So Riley, that would be John Riley from John & Nancy and your Morning Drive, had a blog post last week that really moved me. It was about getting out and doing things even if your first instinct was…it’s probably easier to just stay home and veg on the couch. I had tentative plans with someone I barely know for dinner tonight and, yes, my first instinct was to come up with some excuse and cancel because it was a long, cold Monday and I was just feeling lazy. I somewhat forced myself to go anyway. And you know what? It turned out to be a great dinner and a great conversation with someone who’s really, really interesting and I think will be a friend for years to come.
John was and is so right about getting out and doing. So glad I took his advice tonight.
