An insult wrapped up in a joke is still an insult.

"Just kidding" and its cousin "no offense" are phrases people use to hurt each other without having to take responsibility for rude and disrespectful remarks.

Starting A New Phase In Life

It's hard to believe that in just a few weeks my daughter is heading off to her first year of university.  I'm so excited for her, I know she's going to be successful in anything she puts her mind to.  

As for me, I will officially be an empty nester and entering a completely new phase of my life. While I'm going to miss my daughter, I am really looking forward to this time.  I'm single so for me, it's an opportunity to explore new things just for myself ... and this really excites me!

I've been toying with the idea of taking a motorcycle course.  It's something I've always wanted to do and I have friends who said taking the course will help me decide whether to invest in one for myself ... or not.  I've also thought about taking the adult learn to sail program, although I'll have to wait until next summer to do this. Heading back to the gym is something at the top of the list for me.

One thing is for certain, I am going to return to Toastmasters as this is something I really enjoy doing and I would very much like to compete.

Here's to the next phase of life for both myself and my daughter.  Exciting times for both of us.
