Not much time to write a full blog today, but I did want to share something an old high school friend posted on Facebook today. He posted the following:

“In the end, a healthy man’s life comes down to a few simple things: –If you want others to be more loving toward you, choose to love first. –If you want a peaceful outer world, reconcile your own inner world. –If you are tired of cynicism and negativity out there, cultivate hope in here. –If you wish to find stillness in the world, find the calm within yourself.” –Richard Rohr

My friend, Matt, always had a knack of knowing when I need a reminder on the wonderful and simple ways we can get back to basics in this complicated world.

Here’s to my friend Matt and to all of us who need to remember to tap into our inner calm from time to time. Thanks, buddy!
