Freedom of Speech

Nearly 5 years and over 550 posts on this blog, I needed to defend my 1st amendment right in court this week.

Life is a crazy roller coaster ride which I enjoy immensely.  The twists and turns is what makes it so much fun!!

The beauty of our amazing country, is we have the freedom to voice our opinions, thoughts, stories and ideas.

The United States Bill of Rights states as our First Amendment Right:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

The overwhelming majority of articles and videos on this blog are focused on ideas, tips, and encouragement on helping you get organized.  There are a few posts which have been written because as I work with a client or some event happens in life, compels me to share my thoughts, My Story.

This is done because I know there is someone out in the world going through a difficult time and sometimes just knowing a stranger survived lends encouragement and support for you to get through the day, hour ... hell, there have been times when I just wanted survive the minute.

To all this I say, thank you.

For those who see me for what they want to see, that is your choice.

For those who take the time to know me, let's enjoy the ride.

What story do you want to share?

Bravo Angie! You are fabulous. Little people see little things. Your book is going to rock and help so many with hope and laughter. I know I cannot wait for the read.

And hey Nimrod ... Life is not about you. Get over yourself. My gramma once told me, "You can't be worried about a story if you have done nothin' to worry about."
